Senator Rand Paul:

"Democrats claim to want to unify the country but impeaching a former president, a private citizen, is the antithesis of unity.... Hyperpartisan Democrats are about to drag our great  country down into the gutter of rancor and vitriol.... It's almost as if they have no ability to exist except in opposition to Donald Trump. Without him as their boogeyman they might have to legislate and to actually convince Americans that their policy prescriptions are the right ones. "

After four years of "orange man bad" they have a hard time moving on to more productive pursuits.

The first thing to say is that this is definitely not pyramid selling, OK?

Well hell yeah! After maintaining a lie that the election was fraudulent, doing their best to overturn an election by voting against the certification and inciting a violent mob to break into the Capitol, why can't we all just hold hands and sing kumbaya without the need for any accountability!     :laugh:

Still oblivious to the fact that those same pols impeaching Trump weaponized the FBI and intel community to attempt a soft coup against the President in an attempt to deligitimize him based on a lie.

The fact that you think yak hat guy is more dangerous than Clapper and Brennan shows gullible you are.

Also, if things keep up, impeachment is going to be off the table as they scramble to stop a bunch of redditors investing in stocks.

Yak hat guy wasn't in charge of anything, insofar as I've read. Just the most.... visible.... of the bunch.

In any case, I would be far more afraid of those people responsible for the stashed explosives they found in the area at around the same time as the demonstration.
The really dangerous crazies are the ones smart enough to not get caught, unfortunately.

Do people genuinely believe this was a serious coup attempt and that the government was on the verge of being eliminated/overthrown?

If I was Mike Pence, I'd be more worried about being killed by my own wife or in a helicopter crash than some MAGA hat killing me. Same for all those members of Congress. We've had, what, three serious incidents of violence against a member of Congress recently. We had Rand Paul in a neighbor dispute over landscaping. We had the capitol shooter at the softball game who shot a bunch of Republicans. And we had Gabby Giffords who was shot by a Hinckley type. We also had Paul Wellstone and Mel Carnahan die in plane crashes and John Corzine almost killed in a car accident.

The last time we had a major spate of assassinations was in the 1960s with JFK, RFK, MLK, and Malcolm X.

I think the threat is overblown and amplified by the media.

Julius Malema may end up killing no one while ranging anywhere from transformative influence to faded nothing, but he in no way warrants that level of cocksuredness that he wouldn't cause serious danger and violence because if things ever do get bad and he's around, he'll probably be at the head of some violence.

0Thankfully people who roll in red berets and fatigues and hold up flags with fists and have the actual word "Fighters" in their political party name are seldom linked to violence. Completely unwarranted and out of left field for me to suggest so. You never see those things linked together with actual violence around the world.

Trump never came close to anything resembling that kind of get up and overt paramilitarism.

But that highway leads to a pizza place where lizard people masquerading as Democrats traffic young children.

At least Trump was upfront about being a divisive character and being willing to take on the establishment. Biden, in contrast, gave an inauguration speech about the importance of unity and then proceeded to throw unity under the bus during his first week in office.

People are being held accountable. Over 100 people have been arrested for their participation in the riot.

But Dems unconstitutionally going after someone who no longer holds public office has nothing to do with holding anyone accountable.

Great! I hope Biden continues to throw Republicans under the electric bus, then accelerates forward, reverses, and continues to repeat it until all the insanity originating from them is erased.

Party of Lincoln? Dead!
Party of Reagan? Dead!
Party of QAnon conspiracy theorists? Alive and believin'

He never admitted to obstruction of justice or of breaking the law or tax evasion or attempted rape or sleeping with porn stars, just to name a few.

Biden is willing to work with anyone who is interested in solving  the many problems the US faces. It's a shame that so many conservatives would rather not join those efforts.

By which you mean he failed to rubber stamp every policy idea the Republicans favor, and instead is behaving like a Democrat, which voters knew full well when they elected him by a convincing majority.

The riot at the capital had many causes. I mean we've been seeing this decline in trust in our institutions for decades now and its non-partisan. The media and Congress have trust levels below 20% of the public and their reputation is earned.

Maybe, just maybe, they and we should stop and ask why no one believes them. It isn't because of QAnon.

Anyways, this story is already dying. The market is in chaos and it looks like Americans are more interested in hearings over Robinhood than Trump atm.

So, are you saying that they would have stormed the Capitol irrespective of Trump's claims that the election was stolen? Are you blaming this on the 'fake news media' instead?  :laugh:
Are you at war with reality too?

Your view of Trumpism as a completely top-down phenomenon is probably why you think this is so ridiculous.
