5-minutes of footage and reporting from inside the Trump mob at the Capitol.

Highly recommend...

^ You have to watch this from the beginning with sounds on.

Are the Trump supporters still saying it was Antifa who stormed the Capitol?

When you are done watching that 5min video you can read this:

(THREAD) Media has yet to do a deep dive on precisely what Trump *said* in his January 6 speech in DC—a speech now called an "incitement to insurrection," and the basis for an article of impeachment coming Monday. This thread unpacks the speech. I hope you'll read on and RETWEET.

It’s a bit lengthy (200 tweets) but worth reading.

From what I can see, this was mostly peaceful, like the BLM protests.

Yeah, mostly peaceful except when Trump incited them, and when they beated the press/journalists and destroyed their equipment, broke windows, ransacked offices, stole property and killed a police officer. But other than that it was peaceful.

Seth Abramson? Lulz. That clown checks for Russians in his closet and under his bed before he goes to sleep. You might as well seek Louise Mensch's opinion.

Why don't you read what Trump actually said instead?

"I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard."

This is like the corporate press' "good people on both sides" intnetional misinterpretation after Charlottesville.

We can only wish they will arrest as many people as they do in BLM demonstrations.

What does "patriotically" mean in dogwhistle speak?

werewolf, might I suggest you watch Meet the Press today. Hell there was even a Republican Congressman standing in the chamber making this claim.

Do you blame Jodi Foster for the Reagan assassination attempt?

Jodie Foster held an anti executive branch rally just before the shooting? I had no idea.

A reasonable argument I have not yet seen made is a variant of entrapment.

We all agree that the rally should never have been able to morph into something capable of taking the capitol.

Why exactly did that happen anyway?

A more general problem with rabble raising. The 35% who may support Trump are generally not the kind of people the Trump family wants to spend time with.

Clinton called them deplorables. Trump calls them low class.

Ivanka's social circuit has been eradicated.

So in that video above that I posted... I love the guy at 1:45 who is asking ”What do we get?” ... I think he has misunderstood the concept of America and capitalism. You do not get anything. America is not socialist or communist. He needs to get a job and work.

But okay, if they want socialism, if they want to be like Sweden and Norway, then I support them.

Paramount if they want to be like Sweden or Norway they would be Bernie Sanders supporters.
The Conservatives and right wingers think Sweden and Norway are worse than Cuba or Venezuela.

Umm, no. That's nonsense and you know it, Tom. Perhaps hyperbole.

Norway is sort of niche nation.Its a small nation that struck oil and has continued to invest the wealth from it generally successfully.Its also a very similar society being almost entirley Norweigan in a small knot group , so the trust levels are high unlike diverse nations which leads to a better functiining society in general.

I should also point out that probably the most popular Bernie supporter wouldmvote Trump over Biden since he thinks Biden has brain damage. (Joe Rogan)

Have you read a jergul or WTB post recently?

If they're at all representaitve of their respective countries, I'd rather have Maduro be my personal financial planner.

Its just a question of making sure everyone are stakeholders. Norway does that better than Sweden.

Freedom is another word for nothing left to lose. So make people unfree by giving them a vested interest in the system that is.

You have states that are complete fuckups based on Scandinavian immigrants. Those states neglected stakeholder perspective.

The woman shot. Well, what did she have to lose? Hence the suicide by cop.

"When both Democrat and Republican electoral votes from Hawaii were presented for counting, Vice President Nixon graciously, and saying "without the intent of establishing a precedent",[64] permitted the Democratic votes for Kennedy to be counted"

I think the rehabilitation of Nixon is complete by this point.

I’m not sure what Jergul is saying.

That Norway is more socialistic than Sweden is?

Norway was not wealthy until they struck oil. When a population of 5 million native white people stike that much oil, I can't fathom how theybwould not be wealthy.

To be fair, a sizeable minoriry of Bernie voters votes Trump over HRC as well.

Their overlap is with populism.

Personally I would vote for Bernie in a heart beat.
It would be cold day in hell before I vote for Trump or anyone with the same personality. I have NEVER in my 77 years found any redeeming qualities in a punk bully like Trump. He's a fucking coward and I've felt that way ever since I started observing him and his actions about 6 years ago. He had not done one thing to change my mind.
