1. Good, turn on the others. Most proud boy types wont do that I dont think.

I think they are down for a violent and deadly overthrow and they want to kill me and most of you too.

3. I expect the Proud Boys to flip like pancakes if given the chance.

They won't be nearly so proud when facing federal time. It's easy to talk bravely until you find yourself in the dock.

9. He may have done that before...repeatedly.

There's definitely something not right with many of these people.

So I'm glad it didn't.

6. Armed with what...?

Was that, “…armed with firearms, knives and body armor”???

Which is a bit freaky as the Reich has repeatedly said none of the rioting seditionists had guns or weapons.

13. There was a video posted of him at a Memphis hotel with a firearm on his way to DC

He drove from Idaho specifically to bring firearms, which would not have been permitted on a plane. He met with other insurrectionist friends on the way, including the one he stayed with in Memphis. He absolutely had a firearm in his possession in Memphis during the trip to DC. I would not be at all surprised if the evidence shows he had that same firearm in his backpack during the insurrection.

7. What really gets me down is this......

Those bastards broke glass that was 200 years old. TWO HUNDRED years old. Makes me nauseous whenever I think of that.

12. So much disrespect on display. They didn't care. They were there to defend their god.


Anyone who thinks these asshats are patriots is sadly mistaken — misguided. They haven’t a clue what patriotism is all about. It has nothing to do with what they did. Imagine trying to overturn an election (safely and legitimately conducted), to usurp the will of the people and destroy one of the symbols of our liberty and then try to call yourself a patriot? It is such an insult to everyone who has held that title. I hope these insurrectionists get exactly what’s coming to them!

15. It makes me sick too, Secondwind

My grandmother has glass that old in one of her out buildings (the original cabin/house), and the thought of it being smashed just for giggles makes me sick. As does this.

What was he trying to do? Did he drop down?
