Please don’t misinterpret this morning’s brevity and bluntness as rudeness.
It’s just that I have neither the time, the patience nor the tolerance for bullshit on this, the final day of October.
Of course, those were domestic terrorists who overran our Capitol on January 6th.
Of course they were. How were they not? How were they not the very definition of domestic terrorists?
Terrorists? Absolutely. They terrorized members of Congress. They terrorized police and other law enforcement officers. They were armed. They used those arms to harm others. (Let me cut you off. I know you better than you know yourselves. Yeah, these arms weren’t guns, at least in most cases. But aren’t you the folks who say guns don’t kill people? That anything can be used as a lethal weapon? Yeah, that’s you.)
These domestic terrorists threatened to kill the Speaker of the House. They were not kidding when they said they wanted to hang the vice president of the United States.
Terrorists generally have a “cause.” Check. Their cause was to overthrow the government of the United States. How do we know? They said so. They continue to say so. Not even the 9-11 terrorists had such an ambitious goal.
Which brings us around to why shameless apologists for these criminals insist they were not “domestic terrorists.”
Because they were almost exclusively white. And a lot of them included “Jesus” in their seditious gibberish.
And we all know that White “Krisschins” can’t be terrorists, right? Nah, they’re simply Christian Soldiers.
Only Muslims can be terrorists. We all know that.
And, besides, I’m pretty sure that was Antifa. Or an FBI set-up.
Were these traitors domestic terrorists? Yes. Period.
First the toadie apologists essentially told us Jan. 6 never happened. Then they told us it was no big deal. Then they told us the insurrectionists were “just normal tourists.”
Now we’re being told that it was just an updated episode of the Dukes of Hazzard. You know, a bunch of Lukes and Bo’s just got likkered up and a little carried away, that’s all. But they good ol’ boys…
Their defenders now simply refer to the rioters as “knuckleheads.” Even Charles Barkley would consider that an understatement, don’t you think?
Please don’t mistake my bluntness for rudeness. But on this, the final day of October, I have neither the time, nor the patience, nor any tolerance for bullshit.
Stop the gaslighting. We saw what we saw. We heard what we heard. This was an attempted coup. How do we know?
They said so. And they continue to say so.
