They overran a government building in an effort to effect political change...which is exactly what happened yesterday.

The only difference is that the police didn't gun down an innocent woman in response.

did they walk in the open doors or break in past security? did the occupants flee in terror?

kind of makes a difference

"Terrorism is defined in the Code of Federal Regulations as “the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives” (28 C.F.R. Section 0.85). "

so if they used force & violence, they could be called terrorists... i don't know why i need to retroactively call those people that, i've never heard of them before


however, Trump cultists were indeed terrorists today, they check all the boxes

I don’t know what to say anymore. I have no more funny, sarcastic or lulzy comments to make. I am exhausted.

So storming a government building to pressure legislators to vote the way you want is fine...unless you push aside a temporary metal fence, in which case it's terrorism and sedition.

Got it (?)

Today I learned that rugian is mortally afraid of a bunch of overweight women chanting shitty slogans.

This actually explains a lot.

And Hood is afraid of a bare-chested man wearing a viking helmet.

A barechested man wearing a viking hat is objectively more fear-inducing than overweight women sitting in a circle on a gym floor chanting shitty slogans.

Not that my judgment is of importance here. DC police judged the terrorists to be an imminent threat. You are suggesting that these loud ladies are in the same category. It is the judgment of the DC police and your own that matter.
