    She's gonna get a fat legal defense fund, assuming Trump doesn't pardon her. Life insurance payout, wrongful death suits against law enforcement and then the protest organizers, all kinds of angles to keep this story going. Barring that she may be Vicki Weaver for some budding Timothy McVeigh. There may even be more sieges, feigning an advance on the Capitol Building but then just slaughtering some planned march or demonstration from a politically opposed group. I'm having a very difficult time putting a rational lid on this thing, it honestly feels like shoe-bomber, anthrax envelope territory.

    We all are. If this was a foreign threat, we'd all be united lockstep.

    But since this originated from the party most sensitive to "threats" and "national security", everyone's struggling to rationalize and make sense of it.

    Even to the point of minimizing its symbolic importance from a terrorist/recruitment angle.

    Has a BLM protestor ever been involved in an attempt to overturn an inarguably valid election by storming the US Capitol?

    Asking for a feckless twat

    Yes. But by these same people storming the Capitol, and not by police.



    Unless you consider regular folks, not protesting. Then the answer is a resounding yes.

    That's a different subject and that guy will be prosecuted. The issue with law enforcement Wednesday was they weren't prepared

    Oh I agree with you.


    The issue is they didn't have the number and the suits didn't plan for this. Everyone knew something would happen.


    Then, of course, there's also the issue of whether Trump kept the national guard away or not. If he did, he should go to prison.

    I believe their response was sabotaged, maybe not to have the Capital invaded but maybe so that Trumpers looked like peaceful protesters that did not need a pervasive police presence. And maybe that indicates the naivete of Trump sympathetic minions. It was obvious to everyone else though.

    What was the difference between attempting to storm the White House vs storming the capitol. The answer not being able to get in the White House but in both instances there was an attempt to get in first by a riot mob. For Some reason I don’t recall the condemnation about that attempt

    there is no difference; they're equally appalling. however, one has been universally condemned by politicians across the political spectrum, while the other is often celebrated, even enabled, by elected officials at every level of government. until that stops, we will continue to see atrocities like those perpetrated by the Capitol Hill Mob.

    This is "equivalency?" What nonsense. You continue to search for excuses and you are making yourself look foolish.

    It's the difference between killing someone you believe stole from you or killed your loved one, and assassinating the president of a country cos your guy lost the election
