Those who helped were probably not pro-Trump.
Of course, they were. 100% PRO TRUMP. Look at the photos and videos of the culprits including Trump, listen to the words, and there's zero doubt about this.

So all of you Democrat supporters believe Democrats have clean hands?
False equivalency. Trump's hands are filthy, that's all that matters, here.
List his crimes.....
The president of the United States incited this insurrection, this armed rebellion against our common country.
25 ( +27 / -2 )
That being said, since last spring, unlike the Left, President Trump has not promoted riots nor described looting as a “nonviolent act”
The false equivalency of a BLM movement vs. the domestic terror of the Trump supporters at the capitol is completely wrong.
BLM happens due to things like police treating blacks unfairly and outright shooting them. They're trying to defend their rights, and right a wrong.
The domestic terrorists at the Capitol, led by Trump, are doing the opposite. They're invading the Capitol to try and cheat America out their rights of a fair election, thus being traitors to the constitution of the United States of America, and attempting to wrong a right.

Never once have I said the leaders of the US were doing a good job with this pandemic
I agree with this, wholeheartedly. Government officials and particularly the Trump administration suck at their job concerning the pandemic.
But, the American people equating wearing masks or restrictions to stifling their freedom is a big reason for pandemic spread, along with their penchant to ignore distancing to the point of huge gatherings without caution. And they're boisterous when talking or doing things, so the spit flies.
Both the government and the people are spreading the virus, not a good combo.

Syria, Ukraine, Belarus... and now the USA.
It's happening all over the world.
You pick and choose where anarchy exists as well as terrorism...the two qualities of those attacking the Capitol.
But, don't make this as something happening all over the world as some sort of lame excuse or justification for the crazy support of Trump.
Talk about a false equivalency, this is it. Just don't. Yours is a statement of escaping the truth of a unique domestic attack by Trump followers on the United States of America, unprecedented and totally sucks.
I don't believe you are an American patriot, at all, if you believe the domestic terror attack on the Capitol was not induced by Trump on his crazy support group, who were armed and violent.
Syria, Ukraine, Belarus...pffft...those countries you compare to the USA. Complete folly, contextually. Any support of Trump at this point supports insurrection and sedition.

And of course, Donald does nothing. It's not like he can't just call a press conference and say "Don't do it."
Well, he cares more about his golf course being removed from hosting the PGA championship, than what mayhem may occur by his domestic terrorist following. I'm pretty sure he's fuming for former and 'what me worry' for the latter.
And, even if he does a press conference, it would have to be one of those obviously reading the prompter and being told to do so. It's a sad joke, watching him when he has to be 'nice' because he's a petulant child being commanded by someone to say what's been written, and because he can't rant in those situations, he's like a squirming bottled up child in a principal's office...contrite but totally detached from the moment.
Or, he quite possible loses his rain man moment, and goes into his usual self, and tell his people to go ahead and end democracy, as he wants fascism and autocracy, so his commands to his people are for violence and destroying the US constitution.

Trump is a domestic terrorist
Cut the drama.
The drama is, this was an act of domestic terror which breeched the Capitol and attacked our legislative branch. The photos were dramatic...it was like the French Revolution...people ready to die for a cause, not a peaceful demonstration. If you disagree with this, you're not a patriot to America, like all Trump supporters, who approve this attack.
By way of Trump supporters who invaded the Capitol with violence and purpose of interrupting the democratic process by destroying the electoral college ballots, with Trump being their leader and encouraging them AND telling them to go to the Capitol where he would march with them, he was responsible for their actions because he could have stopped it with a speech saying he had lost the election and tell his angry mob NOT to go to the Capitol, because it is an act against America.
The act of the supporters was domestic terror because of its treasonous and violent nature. It was not a peaceful demonstration, which is a key point. The terrorists were dressed threateningly, and ready for physical confrontation, to cause mayhem, and to destroy parts of and disrespect the American Capitol. Many people were hurt, including police trying to protect our democracy. And, of course, 5 people died.
That makes their leader, Donald Trump, a domestic terrorist. Just because he was too ignorant and stupid to realize his words aided an act of treason and terror, which even the staunch supporters must realize will live in infamy as an act against the United States of America, doesn't let him off the hook.
Trump is guilty of domestic terror, as he is the leader and his followers take his lying and racist lead and runs with it.

Impeaching this president for making a speech would do more damage to the Constitution than the rioters, horrible as they were, did last Wednesday," Dershowitz
Dershowitz saying impeaching the criminal Trump will do damage to the Constitution? Naw, impeaching Trump would actually uphold it. Dershowitz is a tool...been drinking the same stupid soup as Giulani.
He fails to see Trump was the leader of a terrorist cell attempting a coup on the legislative branch of the USA, our voting process of democracy, by destroying electoral college votes, so they can declare Trump supreme leader.
No fooling, if they did light the electoral votes on fire, there would be no evidence of victory, anarchy further ensues. This is not only damaging to the Constitution, it would set America into a Civil War, if the GOP and its followers did not completely turn against the terrorist right wingers. Trump, the leader from a group who did a coup d'etat vs. Biden's America, who was elected in a democracy.
And you know how the weasel party works, they'll flip any direction, tell any lie, to swim in their false narratives. If a Civil War happens, side with whomever elects them, and if it is racist, backward country traitors, so be it.
The Trumpian way would be to burn the Constitution itself, and make their own dystopian 'alternative facts' a moving goalpost of rules, at least for the next five minutes, or so.
Trump didn't have to directly order them to do it, but if he agrees and wants to go to the Capitol with them(of course, he bunkered up...that was a lie those idiots believe he'll be right there with him, along with Josh Hawley), then he is the one who is responsible for allowing treason toward our constitution, and the President is impeachable, and should be, Dershowitz, you clown.

She was an unarmed veteran with 14 years of honorable service who was exercising her constitutional right to demonstrate her views.
She was not a completely innocent, legally and constitutionally obedient individual who was demonstrating her views peacefully, and had nothing to do with her own demise.
She promoted sedition and attacked our Capitol, our legislature and the United States of America. I don't feel sorry for her death.
I don't feel worse for her than I did for Al Queda who were killed. They all did acts of terror toward the USA, but the difference? She was treasonous from within and knew exactly where to try and ruin America. It wasn't the trade towers, it was our law making branch of government.
The attack on the Capitol, was our own citizens attempting a coup. A worse act of terror over even 9-11. She and others would have destroyed the electoral boxes, had they gotten them. That was their goal, and they failed. It was not her constitutional right to be in the Capitol trying to achieve this goal by physical, destructive and violent actions.
Don't go thinking this was just a slap on the hands act, where this woman was just doing her constitutional duty. She and all her Trumpian cohorts were attacking the very fabric of America, and she reaped what she sowed.

the Pubs are worried that if he goes down for sedition, it will expose their enabling of him and his policies for the past four years.
I find Lindsey Graham the poster child for this statement.
He was John McCain's lackey, turned on him as soon as Trump became President, became his loyal minion to the end, until he wasn't, when 'enough is enough'. An attempted coup can do that, even to the staunchest of 'worst of the worst'.
Damn these Benedict Donald enablers!

He should be saying, 'I apologize for being the leader of the terrorism I caused at the Capitol, an unprecedented act in modern America. An attempted coup, I did not orchestrate, directly, but as President, should have denounced quickly and emphatically, and it is solely my responsibility for agitating my followers'.
'I resign, and regret being the worst president, ever'

So, the faceless Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, executive administration will arbitrarily mandate and govern who can or cannot, the content of which is deemed to be political acceptable, or without any democratic accountability remove suspend an account they determine to violate or prescribe to be false?
It wasn't done arbitrarily, quite obvious to many of us. Trump's comments and usage of media to spread lies wouldn't be possible without a really idiotic following who believes him, but they do. That necessitates some censorship of him. He and they caused it.
Although I understand the concern for free speech, it cannot be abused to the extent of what's happening with the Trump followers and conservative media, who's blatant 'alternative facts' are doublespeak in Orwellian terms.
Limits set are very difficult to determine, but this is the world we live in. It isn't cut and dried, nor what was considered a given...wanting the truth and justice in America, no longer exists with Trump and his supporters, along with right wing cherry picked false narratives in media.

Trump has single-handedly destroyed the Republican party. Ha!
I think the Republicans destroyed the Republican party. Their lies and deceit, like Cheney and co. knowingly do the first unilateral US attack for the wrong reasons and, of course, Nixon, among other problematic ideals, has led to the unhinged state of conservatives, deserved distrust by many Americans and a lack of control for truth in the right wing.
A group that will allow and want a fascist like state, as long as they make their money. They will say and do anything to keep their wrongs intact and try to con the country into believing by fear mongering, cherry picking and false narrative, they are patriots, of which they are not.
Trump is a terrible and egregious symptom, he is not the cause.

Dems thinking that it’s going to be a smooth sail and no political consequence for rubber stamping
That's not at all how the Democratic thought process works. It isn't binary and it isn't smooth or easy, and decisions do have consequences. But decisions are made with a plan and critical thought, something the previous losing administration did not understand or implement.

Well, we knew things would get bad initially with Trump losers, just hope it doesn't get totally out of control. They're unhinged people, like their supreme gas lighter in chief. Actually, the gas lighter in chief is just a symptom of the disease of the people who want racism, lies and fascism instead of truth, fairness and democracy.
Imagine if a shouting match on board leads to a full scale fight, and some idiots open a door, an unlikely structural failure occurs and the plane goes down. Escalation begets escalation. Scary stuff.

should revert back to normalcy within two years as the GOP retake the House and then watch the Senate go back again.
With all your supporter riots promoting fascism and sedition, there's no way people in America will support these actions. In the next couple of years, the ridiculousness of Trump's reign of terror will be further exposed, as will the lies of the right wing and its false state networks, spewing autocratic hope of a single racist state.
The American people will further remove itself from the GOP, because even the GOP has no idea what it is, as a few, like Romney are being looked at the enemy by the current goons in control. Is the GOP just a bunch of liars, or does it have a platform? No one knows, because Trump's GOP is false equivalence of what the GOP actually stands for, so Republicans are confused by their lack of integrity and ability to critical think.
The pipe dream the GOP will control the house and then the senate again, which used to be normalcy in America, very well will not happen.

despite all the progress (trend reversal from the obama years). Shows the dems are very short on policy.
The reversals were basically because unethical stupid white Trump didn't like honorable black Obama, his intelligence, nor his humanity (ie, Trump is a whiny, juvenile, racist con man). The short on policy is a joke. Obama was a great president, a reason why he was re-elected for a second term, with huge approval. A winner, unlike Trump, a total loser. Obama understood policy, made them, and executed them.
Trump had few to no policies, no understanding how to implement a US government plan, and lack of any execution, thereof. He was and is a windbag. He sandbagged America to vote for him, and many realized their error, and didn't vote for him a second time. Trump was a 4 year mistake, who's approval rating dropped.
Trump, the worst president ever. The worst president imaginable.

Many of us have worked hard to get our kids through school, and parent them to understand their own responsibility of studies, hardship and life. I spent a great deal of time doing this, risking my job and lifestyle as a single dad, both of which were put aside, as being with my children and nurturing them became my first priority.
Lori Loughlin is an idiot who ruined her kids by making them spoiled people who feel they do not have a need to earn their way through life. She taught them to cheat and if you get caught, you lie and fight your own guilt. She taught them, hey, even if they finally catch you, you act like you regret your behavior, but you get off after two months, so don't worry girls, we have enough money, or will find a way and you don't really have to go to college, study and work a hard job. College is just for the parties, right?? She has not been a role model who understands integrity and truth as necessary qualities of good people, and for that, her girls are deprived, likely liars and likely vain.
What a loser Lori Loughlin is. With laziness and allowing her kids to get away with things, she is complicit in all their personal problems they have and will have in the future. Too bad for the girls, but so be it. They'll be known as dumb is as dumb does...and lacking the qualities and achievement of getting into USC on their own, their entire lives.

I'd even go so far as suggesting your bias clouded your memory.
No, I have no bias on this matter. 'Suggesting' my memory has been clouded is an attempt of a gaslight of manipulating words, and sorry, the lies and narrative of Trump followers do not work on me.
There was never a refusal to give out transition information like Trump is doing. Nearly two months after the election, he is still refusing to even acknowledge defeat. He is not only a sore loser, his refusal to transition is hurting America and is a traitor because of it. 'Suggesting' my memory has been clouded is a complete gaslight of manipulating words, and sorry, the lies and narrative of Trump followers do not work on me.

I'm no Trump fan, but have you forgotten the Clinton Bush handover?
Why start out saying you're no Trump fan if you show any false equivalency in your comparison of this transition to any other? There's been nothing close in the history of presidential transition to the lack of cooperation Trump shows to Biden. Trump is unhinged and is being a fascist who refuses to go by the long held rules of American democracy, Clinton was not.

Along that binary line of 'reasoning', anyone, other than those who want to further undermine democracy that sees anything positive in what Trump's doing now must be a keyboard warrior for one of the globe's authoritarian regimes, or one of the regime's alt right supporters.
Trump has trolled democracy and the presidency. He thought his dictatorial business style, which could fail at any time because he believed he had people like oligarchs and controllable people like bankers in Germany, in his pocket, was allowed. America isn't the fascist state he believed.
Trump never had any idea how to be a president within a US democracy. He loved the label of being President, he didn't actually care for the country, and more importantly, never has understood what the United States of America is about. It isn't about lies and narratives and self importance as a priority for a leader. He's not a supreme leader, even thought he wanted to be. He isn't an American patriot, that's for sure.
Eventually, most will realize, even his most stubborn supporters, that those lies and acts of idiocy which has been a staple of his administration, is wrong. They admit the problem and vote him out.
The one's who remain are 100% minions. Few, if any, views of logic, an incapability of gathering information and making a decision of truth. Zero critical thought. They'll cherry pick and bring the false narrative and be ridiculous.
