those people that stormed the Capitol are a basket of deplorables. talk about white trash!!!!!!
sure protest all you like....PEACFULLY!!!!!! but the moment you invade the house of the US Congress, you become un patriotic and your citizenship should be revoked IMO.
a woman died who was also trying to storm the building........she got what she deserved. but it should not have happened in the first place. this is all trump and his cronies fault. trump now has blood on his hands. that woman did not have to die like that. it is sad really.
and please do not attempt to bring up antifa. i saw some idiots claiming that this is all antifa disguising themselves as trump supporters. this is not true, so do not allow conspiracy theories to cloud your mind.
today what should have been a good day in which the presidency will officially be put down in the books as going to President-elect Joe Biden, turns out to be a day of embarrassment and sadness.
am i surprised this happened? nope. trump has been calling for this day for a while now. i hope that we all can now just ignore him for the next few weeks leading up to the Inauguration of Joe Biden. i hope he stays in mar largo and gulfs his way out the presidency, a job in which he clearly was in over his head.
They should have just blocked the highways and looted and burned some businesses like the democrats do since it's not against the law.
Actually 4 people died: one woman was shot by security, 3 others died from "medical emergencies" (no further details available at present, not going to speculate).
Although our own cowardly clown in chief has been careful not to criticise those in high office who incited this (I'm using that wording because Trump wasn't the only one), I was surprised when our Home Secretary actually broke ranks and stated the truth that Trump had incited this - surprised because she has frequently used inflammatory language and has been accused of incitment herself. The question is whether she'll have the nerve to put her money where her mouth is, since she has the power to ban Trump from the UK (which a number of senior people have called for, and the people who live near his Scottish golf course would be very happy to see, since he's been an appalling neighbour, bullied residents and constantly broken agreements he's made).
@Rook @ozonetrooper these were not regular buildings. THIS WAS THE US CAPITOL!!!!!! second to the White House and maybe the Supreme Court.
if it was anywhere else, you would have gotten a different reaction from me.
Those weren't Trump supporters.
don't really care who they were really
edit: plus those pictures could be edited. i do not believe in conspiracy theories and unless you have better proof, this will not sway me from believing that trump idiots stormed the Capitol waving the confederate flag!!!!!
I'd be wary of conspiracy theories and check sources carefully before posting. Anyone can add a tag to an image, and since that site seems to identify far right activists an image being tagged with their URL doesn't necessarily mean that it is their people in the photo.
What is certain is that many of the people involved in this have been identified as long-term right wing activists. This was not a false flag operation, convenient a story as that might be for some now.
And let's be very clear: Trump praised these people: he told them he "loved" them, that they were "special people", and said that they should "remember this forever". He supported the invasion of the Capitol, it's that simple.
thank you @Hadron well said......100% agree with this.
i'm just glad that FB has locked his account indefinitely. i wish twitter would do the same.
And there is no way that the woman killed upon entering the Capitol was antifa. She was a navy vet and a Q-Anon believer.
Were you as concerned when Obama's old buddy Bill Ayers blew up the Capital Building and Pentagon with a bomb? I doubt it. Google it and you'll see for yourself. This is nothing new but now that it's republican's doing it it's big news. Double standards. The liberals are a bunch of idiots. Actually the republicans are a bunch of idiots for letting this bunch of idiots take control of our government.
Stop changing the subject. And yes republicans are idiots.
The subject of this thread is "Capital Stormed" by republicans. The "Capital Bombed" by the democrats is hardly changing the subject. And yes Bill Ayers was one of Obummers big supporters and dinner buddies at each others houses.
I'm just surprised you didn't call me a racist. When you best an liberal in an argument you automatically become a racist. That's the only thing they can think of.
Ok well let's just say that we agree to disagree.
I will say this, if these idiots were Democrats, they would still be idiots. Anybody who storms the Capitol like that deserves to be punished to the fullest of the law.
Edit: I was agreeing to disagree on the mob rush on the Capitol. And I would never call somebody a racist unless I have proof.
i spoke out then and i will continue to speak out now.
i'm all for peaceful protests....i went to one in Beverly Hills.....it was great, no violence no idiots causing damages to local business. anytime you have local business like that burn is a travesty. i was there during the Rodney King Riots. i can totally say that the violence there had nothing to do with Rodney King. it was thugs taking advantage of the situation. and there is nothing new about the summer riots. it was the same shit......just thugs taken advantage of the situation.
but the assholes who invaded our Capitol is unAmerican. those idiots who died, died unnecessarily. i blame our idiot in chief. he incited these guys. even going so much as to say that he would join them....but did he????NOPE!!!! COWARD!!!
just a fyi the title says the "US Capitol was stormed".....you added in republicans.
i could careless about any bombing in the past or Bill Ayers.
and you did not best me....not even close
but see, this is what trump wants. this is what putin wants. right now our adversaries are salivating at the idea of a torn United States. they want to divide us. keep us inflamed at each other. it makes us easier to control that way. Biden is right when he says that we should be united. Republicans and Democrats are Americans to the core. sure disagreements will arise but we still need to remember that we are Americans still.
it's sad but needed to be done that the US Capitol police chief resigned. somebody's head should roll for this fiasco. this could have been prevented if more proper planning was done.
and i'm still sad about the first woman that was killed though. i think she should have been punished, but i never wish for anybody to be killed. its just sad really. she has been brainwashed by trump. i mean she followed q-annon. she was a vet as well....totally tragic
and to compare this to the riots in the summer is silly.
THEY ATTACKED OUR CAPITOL BUILDING!!!!! they defiled the building that is the heart of our country. if that does not infuriate you then i do not know, i'm at a loss for words.
yesterday was a very sad day for America.
the only good thing to come out of it was that Joe Biden is officially the president elect. and also Jon Osoff and Rapheal Warnock unprecedented wins in Georgia.....i guess it was a bittersweet day.
Only in the liberal infested mainstream media is George a hero everyone else knows what he was.
People need to ask themselves how an unarmed group can gain access to what should be one of the most secure buildings in america, without inside help.
Barracaids were removed for them and they were simply shown where to go. One doesn't simply leave a door open to the capital building.
Watching thes events on UK TV News (>1 channel) it looked like the 'security' inside the Capitol were either standing idly by, or in some cases actually helping/directing the mob. Did some idiot deliberately downgrade security ?
