I've seen a picture of the horn guy at an antifa riot.  He was in a leadership role supposedly.  One of those things that make you go, "Hmmm..."
“Don’t be so open-minded that your brains fall out.” - G.K. Chesterton

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

My wife often says to me, "You are evil and must be destroyed." She may be right.

How many Democrats does it take to fix a problem?  No one knows because it's never happened.

This has video. Who is the guy in the back with a weapon? Looks like glass on the floor.  A few questions here and the truth will never come out.

The guy with the rifle almost looks like he's signaling to someone behind the door in this frame:



It's a lousy image and hard to tell what exactly is going on, but like I said, the fact that it's tinfoil-hattery doesn't necessarily make it untrue.  And as you said, we'll probably never really know, more's the pity.

No, you've seen a picture of horn guy at a counter protest, the picture YOU saw had the Q "Trust the plan" sign photoshopped out.

Is it really hard to believe that these people could be responsible for their own actions, and be on the right?

Demonstrations and riots aren't how I roll, but I'm having a hard time getting exercised over what was a mostly peaceful show of support.

The fanatics do what fanatics do and I find what the Democrats and Republicans are doing to the USA far more insulting than the actions of a minority of overzealous Trump supporters acting out in defiance of the Uni-Party.

If they did it, which they did, they are indeed responsible for their own actions. My tinfoil question from earlier still stands though: Could there have been some antifa plants that actually started the herd moving? The people that stormed in are still responsible for doing so, but would they have done so if a few "leaders" didn't start the stampede and egg people on? This is just not what we have seen at any pro-Trump or pro-conservative rally in the past.

There are just a lot of images of people who, other than a Trump hat or Gadsden flag, look they they just walked out of a CHOP.

The "leaders" were people like Nick Fuentes and such who livestreamed themselves urging people on

Is it realy that hard to believe that people who follow Q on 4chan and believe that a shadowy cabal of satanists control everything might look like CHOP types?

No, but I more expect the radical Trump people to look and act like (I can't find the video of him acting like an ass anymore) the guy who went to Pelosi's office to "scratch his balls". I also expect that people like him are the lemmings. He wouldn't have had the balls to do that if somebody hadn't "opened the gates" as it were.

Here's what happened. Anything else is cope and hope.

For a LONG time, people associated with trump, and trump himself, have been giving a platform to , for lack of a better term, maniacs. These folks have been pumping conspiracy theories about shadow government and the deep state, etc.

Normal people have been sharing it on social media, pumping it up and churning it into a frenzy.

A large chunk of those types of people went to the capitol yesterday

And after FOUR YEARS of this type of stuff  ( DONT FORGET TO TRUST THE PLAN!!!!!111111oneoneoneeleventy) , they did something monumentally stupid

And now, people on the right who have been Larping about "1776!" "Tree of Liberty!" "WHY DONT ANYONE RESIST THIS TYRANNY" are like:

"Wait a minute... we didnt ACTUALLY want someone to do somethign! it must have been antifa!"


It's pathetic. Legions of trump supporters spent four years in LARP conspiracy theory land, while the democrats actually went out and pursued votes, instead of "Trusting the plan! Where we go 1, we go all!" nonsense.

And if the dems DID cheat, the Right LET IT HAPPEN, because "Q SAID THE FRAUD WILL BE REVEALED" so they LAID DOWN AND DIDNT DO A GODDAMN THING ABOUT IT.

Then, someone DID go do something about it, and now yall are like "antifa! antifa!"

In case I wasn't clear previously, I don't like mobs violently storming the Capital, whether they are doing so because they don't like a particular supreme court justice or the results of an election.  I have been saying for months that the lesson being learned from the police responses to the BLM/Antifa riots was that if you have enough friends and are willing to be violent the police will back down.  I have been concerned that this kind of thing would happen, and now that it has I'm completely unsurprised.

The people who were silent or supportive during the months of BLM/Antifa riots have no moral standing to speak out in any respect against the Capital insurrection.  I will dismiss outright everyone who defended BLM/Antifa during their mayhem but are suddenly preaching law and order.  In much the same way I dismiss outright the people who were on an anti-Trump intifada for the past four years claiming he stole the presidency and that he is an illegitimate president and a racist and a fascist dictator, and pushing Russia conspiracy theories who now are calling for unity under Biden and condemning any question about his election as mere conspiracy theories.

On the other hand, I do respect and will listen to those who have been consistently anti-mob-violence.

It is not a conspiracy that leftists are pretty much in control of every important institution.

Once the left had enough influence they installed gatekeepers to keep anyone not on the "team" out of positions of influence.

Trump was an entertaining firebreak that held off what appears to be the inevitable consolidation of power.

When the press/social media, nearly every large corporation and the entire Federal/State Government are ALL on the same page it should awaken you to the truth.

The rogue voter problem has finally been neutralized. We live in a totalitarian fascist state ie Fake Democracy.

How tight they turn the screws on the recalcitrant Trump voters remains to be seen.

Enjoy the reset.

I've come to believe anything is possible, regardless of how tinfoil-hattish it might be. For example, these guys look like they got swept up in the moment while on their way to some gaming convention:

Nice story bro

The right has been furiously trying to vote us out of this mess for decades.

The Uni-Party gives us Dole, McCain and Romney to vote for and torpedoes anyone unapproved (Ron Paul) even getting close to making a show. Same thing plays out all the way down the ballot. Ask our resident judge how that works.

Even when "we" win, we lose. Reagan got shot. We get a Bush (3 times) and Trump.

I don't think Trump was "supposed" to win and that is part of the hatred of the deep state for him.
