US 2021 Capitol insurrection

Post by lpm » Wed Jan 06, 2021 5:19 pm

It's easy to not notice how pathetic Trumpism is, unless you actually watch a Trump rally.

Trump just said "b.llsh.t". The crowd didn't just cheer at his unpresidential language. They shrieked with joy. A crowd literally squealing at how wonderful it is.

Fundamentally that can't compete with Democratic candidates saying stuff like "We will get $2,000 for your family".

If Trump speaking into a dead mic isn’t the greatest metaphor for the end of his presidency, I don’t know what is.

Couldn't that have started earlier?

I do enjoy these rallies.

In practically the same sentence Trump attempts a coup, warns that America is about to be destroyed, and complains Oprah doesn't invite him on her show. It's Monty Python surreal.

And lists all his failures: Judicial appointments that won't support him, AGs that won't support him, state governors and officials he supported that say the elections were fair.

He starts to complain about Governor Kemp's voter fraud in Georgia but starts rambling about how much Kemp weighs instead. 130 pounds apparently. Surely surely surely even MagaMorons listen to this and start to realise the guy's brain is totally fried.

Those would be the same fuckwits who listened to him ramble on about picking up a glass of water without spilling it on his tie for approximately 7 Ice Ages ... and then cheered at the end, catching COVID in the process.
This place is not a place of honor, no highly esteemed deed is commemorated here, nothing valued is here.
What is here was dangerous and repulsive to us.
This place is best shunned and left uninhabited.

Yes!

For the first time in history, a coup leader ends his call to arms by dancing along to the song "Y.M.C.A." by popular beat combo "The Village People".

Meanwhile Pence has put out a statement promising to behave himself.

Alabama and Alaska are done, but wait! An objection to Arizona! The Senators wander back to their own fetid swamp while the House remain in their dumpster, to "debate" Arizona's vote for two hours.

A few scuffles as Antifa & BLM Maga try to storm the Capitol.

Luckily there are a lot of steps and the putsch fails when the red hats get out of breath.

I forget the exact words Trump used when calling on the crowd to march to the Capitol.

But the intent was to urge them to riot.

Trump has of course scuttled back to the White House, despite saying he'd march with them.

Lockdown. A bunch of Red Hats have made it inside. The police are attempting to retake the steps.

Armed primarily with selfie sticks, from what I see on C4 News.
It first was a rumour dismissed as a lie, but then came the evidence none could deny:
a double page spread in the Sunday Express — the Russians are running the DHSS!

It's the surreal mix. They are trooping through halls with selfie sticks and keeping within the velvet rope lines. And simultaneously the Senators are sheltering under chairs.
