  • Insurrection in Washington

    Anyone care about the Proud Boy, MAGA mob, invading the Nations Capital?

    Mobs smashed down the doors to the Capital building, now occupying the Senate chamber, rifling through Senators desks and offices.
    Here is a protester in the Speakers' Dias, shouting "Trump won the Election !" Click image for larger version

      Nope. This is bigger than self absorbed recreational pursuits.

      "Donald Trump is responsible for the coup that is unfolding at the Capitol," said Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.). "He is a fascist and a direct threat to our country."

          If those storming the capitol building had been BLM protesters they woulda' been machine gunned.

          That said, a young woman is now dead, and for what? Humans can be easily persuaded to do dumb things.

            sorry Grant. My wife was in tears watching this ransacking of the Capital building, the breakdown of a peaceful transition to a new government.

              Sorry Grant. I understand your respect for protocol. However, respect for our democracy dictates that we speak this everywhere and loudly. This was part of a coup attempt by Donald Trump and cannot be tolerated. Those responsible must be held accountable.
              It's turns! Of course it's worth the hike!

                Trump needs to be impeached and removed from office immediately. He essentially directed the riot he incited to take matters into its own hands at the Capitol. He aimed this violence directly at the members of congress. There is no other alternative that makes sense.

                  Today, more than 150 Republican lawmakers will likely attempt a coup of our democracy. We are staring down a quasi-fascist movement desperately grasping for power. It's hard to overstate how much damage this will do. This is a dark, disgraceful moment for American democracy.



                  Virtually none of these lawmakers actually believe Trump won the election or has any valid claim of fraud. That truth underscores the severity of their seditious conduct: they don’t believe in the merits of what they're doing, their actions are an anti-democratic play for power.

                    I think invoking the 25th could be quicker. Remember the tangerine-tinted clown has access to the "football".

                              Would be great if you'd stick to telemark Dostie

                              This and the COVID discussion are great examples of how you take the rhetoric in a personal and defensive direction when it wasn't going there before. People have every reason to feel the way they do and call for action on these things.

                              Disappointed how you are one of the main voices in telemark and you take things this direction. It definitely casts a pall over your otherwise good resource.

                              Again - I implore you to use your platform you haven't used in nearly a year (EYT).
