What's amusing to me about this is... well, nothing, really, there's not much amusing about a coup attempt, but this comes closest: the Trump cultists have been yammering nonstop since the election of "we're gonna start a Civil War, we're gonna storm the Capitol and drench
the Tree of Liberty" and yadda-yadda-yadda-look-how-big-my-dick-is here's-a-picture-of-me-with-guns-that-anybody-can-buy-but-they're-special-when-I'm-holding-them-cuz-I-play-a-lot-of-Call Of Duty
. Whatever. You go to Gab, you go to Parler, you look in the YouTube comments under Tim Pool or one of his endless wannabe's, and it's ALL THEY GODDAMN TALK ABOUT.
Then when some of 'em actually DO some of that shit, what's their first reaction?"Couldn't have been us, Antifa did it, it was Antifa posing as us, that crafty Antifa!"
Ya gotta laugh. Really, ya gotta.
Y'know, it really is true: the Nazi playbook and the GOP playbook overlap.
Over a period of months I have been documenting in this thread - https://pensacoladiscussion.forumotion.com/t30796-a-really-short-diary-re-white-supremacist-infiltration-of-minneapolis-protests
-- so many concrete examples of right-wingers posing as "Antifa" that I call the post my "ammo dump."
And the second the right-wingers actually DO some of the violent stupid Q-bert shit that they cannot flippin' shut up about
, and they see that the nation doesn't view them as the heroes they were sure
they'd be greeted as... they go to a tactic straight out of a Family Circus
I mean, okay, I can kind of understand. Gaze upon these wond'rous examples of humanity:
I know y'all are desperate not to have to claim Buffalo Boy (aka "The QAnon Shaman" -- that's what he calls himself, there's YouTube Video of him and whooooo-baby just back the psych-meds truck up to his house and somebody get the funnel 'cuz boy is gaaaawwwwn
on the cult-crazy, whacked right outta his skull, dad, he ain't never
comin' back) or that whatever-that-is holding the orange flag, that "What If Baby Huey was a dwarf" or whatsit. I can understand why that
fella joined up. He's got a lot to compensate for. He's one of those fellas you look at and think, "Jesus, THAT'S the product of the strongest-swimming sperm in the load?! What kind of babies would the also-rans have made? Balloon animals? A marine sponge? A squash? Would they have even been viable?
" I know someplace that boy's got a mama and every time she looks at her offspring and sighs to god, "C'mon, lord, ya gotta be kiddin' me." And not even pictured is "Big O" (who's 60 and still thinks people wanna see his chest) and "Elizabeth from Knoxville" (I'd pay a quarter and duck into a tent to get a look at her
parents... and I'd probably have to).
I mean, nobody's
eager to admit that those folks
are who they're in bed with. But most of those folks are long-time Trump cultists who have been on the radar forever. It was like right-winger-celebrity-day in the Capitol. Hell, even Tim "Baked Alaska" Gionet was there, and that Nazi sonofabitch has been a star in the Trump scene since Charlottesville. That crowd was full of known Proud Boys, Groypers, Kek dimwits, etc. They're all Pro-fa, not Antifa. The "it was the BOOGEYMAN, the BOOGEYMAN did it!" shit ain't gonna work this time, kids, sorry. You shit the bed and you were sleeping alone.
Oh, and in case anyone (like our resident Nazi apologist, who's probably the brother of that dude with the orange flag) doubts that Trump's base overlaps pretty widely with neo-Nazis, witness a lot of the gear on display.
I know, I know, somewhere the Oak Ridge Boys are missing a roadie, but... look at the tee-shirt. "CAMP AUSCHWITZ." On the back it reads "STAFF." Real edgelord shit. They think that's funny.
Then this guy:
That shirt is sold by the Proud Boys, in their colors. "6MWE" is a popular phrase among 'em, and they also wave it on flags. Know what it means?
"SIX MILLION WASN'T ENOUGH."
Y'all are pretty smart folks, I don't think I have to explain what that
That's what was in our Capitol a few days ago. Invited in by The Don himself, and encouraged by a whole lot of people who, hilariously,
are on Twitter trying to decry it all as an outrage when they spent a lot of time and energy encouraging it, just thinking it wouldn't really happen.
Like I've said a few times already, we're gonna have dozens of Tim McVeighs in the next few years, and it'll be because of Donald Trump and the right-wing media who decided that lying to idiots to keep them angry and afraid was profitable. And it's still
profitable so I doubt they're gonna stop. They don't care who gets hurt -- that's all over there, among the rabble, while the money, that's right heeeere
and will help ensure we never have to mix with that rabble.
Already the right-wingers are all over Parler thinking what they did in the Capitol was cool and planning to do it all again on the 19th and 20th, but with their nifty guns this time. I hope that doesn't happen, but if it does, I hope the National Guard that's there to meet 'em uses live rounds, because some of these people just gotta go. If they're hell-bent on killing their fellow Americans, and they're not gonna have it any other way, then I'd rather they were the ones who went, instead. Hopefully it won't come to that, but these people are drunk out of their minds on a bunch of absolute bullshit... and you can never disprove anything to a cultist who wants
to believe it. So... we'll see what happens. Hopefully it's bluster that'll blow out. But I know it all won't, and for the next decade or so we're going to have domestic terror cells of right-wingers, causing mayhem. Maybe longer if Republicans get elected again, because now that the GOP has figured out that their base will accept a dictatorship, that's going to be what they aim for. Settling for less is never the way of sociopaths... and the Republican party has become the sociopath party at this point. They've been getting radicalized since Limbaugh started his career, and it's only snowballed and gotten worse. It'll be up to them to stop doing it... but as long as it makes money, I wouldn't bet on 'em doing that.
