Regarding Ashli Babbitt breaking into the Capitol

and getting shot and killed. I keep thinking of the many many stories of gun owners shooting and killing people on their property maybe in their yards maybe in their homes and one of the defenses is the “castle” defense. People have the right to defend their property. It’s always like this with Republicans. What’s good for the goose is never good for the gander with them. So they are all up in arms over this woman being shot and killed who was among armed insurrections crawling through a broken window to attack OUR castle. I just can’t with them.

1. Frankly, every person who forcibly entered the Capitol, or attempted to, could have been shot

and it would have been justified. They were attempting to overthrow our lawfully elected government.

14. Before naming him, the right wingers were intimating it would be a racial thing.

How is that working out on the extreme right?

2. The only "principle" involved here is that she was one of them

That's all they care about. If a black person had been shot by capitol police the previous day, minding their own business, eating a snickers bar, they would have said hey the wrapper looked like a gun and police is a dangerous job and he should have followed instructions better and whatever.

But this one was one of theirs so suddenly none of the usually pro-police arguments apply.

4. MAGAts saw the Capitol as THEIR property

Some even said as much. Following that line of ‘reasoning,’ the Capitol Police officer was an interloper.

7. She fucked around, and found out

She even had a good 30 secs or so, as she bled out, to contemplate the questionable life choices that led her to that moment, and maybe wonder if they were the right choices.

I have no sympathy whatsoever.

8. Fuck Ashli Babbitt

She was once a patriot. She ceased to be a patriot. She was shot while committing crimes against the United States.

She is trash. Those who support her are trash.

11. They want to present a fallacy that "he shot an unarmed woman". It wasn't about "unarmed".

If he hadn't fired when he did that mob was going to break through. He did his job and ended that threat. I counted about 12 seconds in the video that he had his weapon drawn and pointed and was warning them.

It's nothing but ridiculous partisan whining. Babbitt is a victim of her own out of control stupidity.

17. The mob was 'armed'.

The mob was 'armed'.

While not carrying guns, they were armed with clubs and flagpoles as spears.

18. And if they had gotten through that door

things would have gotten even uglier for our congress members. That officer protected them like he supposed to do.

Their argument about being "unarmed" is laughable.

She was behaving in a threatening manner. That drew a response.
