Watch: Cowboys For Trump Leader Calls For New Rally With "Blood Running From The Building"

Last edited Thu Jan 7, 2021, 06:18 PM - Edit history (1)

Source: Albuquerque News

In a series of remarkable videos posted on social media after an armed incursion by pro-Trump domestic terrorists into the US Capitol Building left four people dead, Otero County Commissioner and Cowboys For Trump founder Couy Griffin shows that he was there and warns that, “this is what you are going to get. You are going to get more of it.”

“There will be blood flowing from that building,” Griffin says in a second video posted this morning. In it he calls for a second rally on Inauguration Day to “plant our flag” on the desks of Speaker Pelosi, new Senate Majority Leader Schumer and even President Trump, “if we have to....

Then the video gets scary. Griffin postures that “we could have a Second Amendment rally on those same steps that we had that rally yesterday. And if we do, it’s going to be a sad day because there’s going to be blood running out of that building. But mark my word, by the end of the day we will plant our flag on the desk of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer… and Donald J. Trump if it comes down to it.”

Later in the video he returns to the idea of a second rally and suggests it occur on January 20th, Biden’s Inauguration Day.

This is 'my' county commissioner. If you ever feel like adding your voice to his nonsense, go to Facebook's Cowboys for Trump.
I was asked by a local to let friends know they can donate to a recall effort. I don't know about other states, but BEFORE we can get a petition going, we have to go before a judge...and we're trying to get an attorney to help us.

72. How to identify a real cowboy
Thu Jan 7, 2021, 08:12 PM
Jan 2021

1. The Hat
A real cowboy, almost invariably, wears a baseball hat with the name of one of the companies he buys materials from - preferably the local agricultural supply house or seed supplier - printed on it. If he has a Stetson, it's only for wear to church or social events. You ever price one of those things?

2. The Boots
"Cowboy boots" are completely impractical for field work. A real cowboy has work boots on his feet.

3. The Clothes
No fancy cowboy shirts or cowboy jeans for real cowboys. Working clothes like Ben Davis or Carhartt are more like it.

4. The Pickup
If it looks like it went to war, lost and went back for seconds, a real cowboy drives it. The bed will generally contain half a ton of random crap, which of course the real cowboy can find exactly what he needs from it in seconds.

If two men are standing next to one another, and one is dressed in a Stetson, pristine western wear and a set of Larry Mahan boots, and the other looks like a construction worker and smells like a mixture of freshly-plowed soil and manure...the second guy is your real cowboy.

out of 74 million "patriotic trump voters" around 2,000 showed up for the big revolution yesterday after Trump begged them for weeks to come. They wouldn't have gotten into the building if capitol police hadn't let them in. There will be investigations and arrests, but when it comes to fighting for a cause, these people won't show because they have no cause. White supremacy is a dying idea, as it should be.

The Women's March in 2017, a million people in DC and millions more in cities and towns around the world. Remember? When George Floyd was murdered, millions showed up in America and world wide during a pandemic to protest police brutality. In the fight against fascism, we show up, and if we decide there'll be a revolution, there'll be a revolution!

the white supremacy idea isn't dying, and is indeed deeply entrenched, but the white race is shrinking, in America and around the world. America is far more diverse and less white than it's ever been in my 73 years on this earth. I know more than a few racists grandparents (my husband's brother is one) who suddenly find they have a black or brown grandchild. Things are changing.

As white numbers shrink, so will white power. I've watched everything become more integrated over the years. It isn't happening nearly fast enough, but it's happening.

It is always about the numbers. That's why their coup failed on Wednesday; they didn't have the numbers. After the explosion in Beriut, millions of Lebanese took to the streets and the government stepped down. The millions who protested in America this summer gave Biden a landslide and trump a huge loss. It's always about the numbers.

It was only a dozen, then few hundred, then a few thousand that actually started and nurtured the revolution, and gained power in 1917 - they were outnumbered in a huge way.

The Reds were never even close to having any large minority numbers of followers.

Numbers are not everything - COMPLACENCY by the Majority is everything.

A small number of dedicated revolutionaries/insurrectionists who can worm their way into the right circles can effect a successful coup or revolution.

Fri Jan 8, 2021, 12:37 PM
Jan 2021

it's too small a number in too many warring factions to overturn the US government. That said, they seem to have much of law enforcement on their side which is disturbing and scary, and if they could unite in their insanity that could be trouble.

I'm not writing these psychos off or burying my head in the sand, I just think we hugely outnumber them and from the Women's March to the BLM protests, I see the complacency that helped get trump in office coming to an end. The turnout in the 2018 and 2020 elections point to a new energy in America. I just hope it continues.

I agree that complacency is our biggest enemy and it's up to all of us to keep people involved. We need thousands of Stacey Abrams, and I feel like we have them.

And I'm not kidding. Generally, I am anti-war, but yesterday's events have utterly infuriated me.

These are traitors, and we must neither forget nor forgive. Not until they are utterly defeated and imprisoned. And that includes people like Hawley and Cruz as well. Not to mention the criminals that implemented the brutal family separation policies at our border.

However, these people have declared war against the United States. If they take up arms, I would not oppose lethal action. A message must be sent. This cannot stand.

76. Cowboys for Trump have been roaming the streets of Silver City NM, where my son lives and works.

They've roamed with their trucks, horses and guns there, in shows of intimidation to everyone who even THINKS of just being a liberal or Democrat.

The right wing white threat in NM is so real my son has set up cameras and gotten a firearm. He's keeping his community well organized with Signal (an open source end-to-end encrypted phone and text app -- but you can't buy it at the Apple store, I think you can get it online), and stays in communication with local police and city officials.

He's been nervous, and tells me to watch for this online:

The Storm is another code word they use for another wide ranging attack nationally on all liberals and non-whites.

Couy will be coming back with his evil and there’s more reason to be concerned.

we liberals greatly outnumber scum like him. We have liberal signs all over our yard and my dad is a liberal gun owner. If the fascist scum tried anything violent, they’d be in for a surprise.

In the second video at 7 he mentions the 2nd amendment. At 10 he vows Biden and Harris will never be president and vice president.

He repeatedly claims that China is taking over the USA, buying up farms, and using their technology to steal our elections.

Over all this guy is the embodiment of the banality of evil
