Photo of the Oath Keepers carting their guns around Ballston Comfort Inn.

A lot of people are pretty interested in the Quick Reaction Force laid out in the sedition conspiracy yesterday. Here's a post (from July) laying out what was public then.

With picture of the Oath Keepers carting their guns around Ballston Comfort Inn.


In Moerschel’s complaint, the North Carolinians alleged to have watched this QRF room while others were at insurrection are described without comment as co-conspirators. None have been charged (at least not publicly). But if and when they are, I imagine we’ll see still more video of weapons being moved around the Ballston Quality Inn.

Again, the precise plan for all these weapons remains unclear. But the government has provided evidence that at least six people already charged (Caldwell, Watkins, Moerschel, Harrelson, Grods, and Dolan) dropped off weapons. Given that Kelly Meggs paid for two hotel rooms there even though he stayed in DC, the implication may be that the same guy planning, “1 if by land, 2 if by sea,” paid for the rooms in question.

..........

Kenneth Harrelson got a later start than the others. At 8:55 on January 7, he texted to the Florida Signal chat, asking where his “shit” was at.

So we’re just leaving DC and I would like to know where my shits at since it seems everyone’s gone already.

In response, someone replied,

We are headed out now. Did you leave it [his shit] at Comfort Inn in that room?

Starting twenty minutes later, Harrelson was at the Comfort Inn along with Jason Dolan, with whom Harrelson drove in a rental car.

24. I'll never look at a

hotel luggage tram the same way again. Reminds me of the time I went into a cute, cozy little candy shop in SW AZ just looking for a sweet treat and instead encounter a dumbass conspicuously packing a big ol' pistol among the chocolate coated walnuts. Ugh.

25. Why do

I find it extra offensive they are using a luggage cart. Carry your seditious weapons losers.

7. If it's the one in the circle on the left (see image below)

Then it's pretty darn close. The capitol building is on the right side for reference.

10. That's amazing. Their attorney is like "left it in Virginia."

And they were going to take a boat if they couldn't get over the bridge. This is some classic Americana history shit here.

Nope, these idiots actually, fucking planned, to take the capitol by actual force.

Imagine if they didn't shoot Babbot, and they did get through, and took the guns from the guards. Their plan would've gone through. Jesus. This could've gone so fucking much worse than it did.

8. Just your typical un-American right-wing domestic terrorist

Remember seeing hotel footage of the Nevada mass killing shooter. He would constantly bring guns into the hotel.

13. None of these guys have any political agenda

so they're not terrorists.

the unlawful use of violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.

17. I see your 'sarcasm' but wonder about political agendas.

We're awash with ways of describing who we are and how we think.

Most of the labels are simplistic and hide our real motivations. Motivations that can change in a short amount of time.

"Agenda" is a problem because it implies some published list of actions within a timeframe.

If mayhem is the the purpose then there is probably not a political agenda. It's probably just a random set of actions to cause the populace to live in fear. Fear to confront the world. Fear to participate in open meetings. Fear of others.

22. Agree totally. In fact AFAIK, "whites" have caused most of the destruction

in the last few centuries. Whether internal such as the US/slavery/jimcrow or colonialism or crusades or apartheid. The list goes on.

Sure atrocities abound in other cultures/races but the whites sure have become experts at terrorism.

26. But terrorism is racially associated with brown people

and racial profiling is used often by TSA, law enforcement, media, and ordinary whites. Plenty of brown people were shot dead after 9/11 in the US and other countries.

Not that it'll matter in prison but a nice icing on the cake
