To paraphrase what I saw on Twitter earlier, is there anyone who still needs white privilege explained to them?

According to the Charlie Kirk twitting feed, find pictures of rightwinger plants in the BLM protests and post them as proof that BLM are involved.

According to the DC police chief three other people died at the US Capitol complex today. That brings the total to four.

Medical issues apparently

How could it not? They stormed and occupied the U.S. Capitol with impunity. This will do wonders for their recruitment.

The last moments of Ashli Babbitt have been posted to youtube. I won't post a link. You can search. Lots of copies.

Had she not been shot, she would have been the first to get through the broken window of the door of the Members' Lobby.

Matthew Gertz tweeted

@MattGertz
Here's Lou Dobbs and Rep. Mo Brooks baselessly speculating that the hundreds of insurrectionists who stormed the Capitol today actually may have included antifa false flag elements.

If all the morbidly obese, neckbearded men with the red hats that say "MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN" were actually antifas this whole time, then why haven't any of Trump's real supporters been going to his rallies for the past four years?

Likely a cop. Video shows police moving in behind demonstrators, then leaving. He looks like he's taking charge.

See the moron in the horned helmet and fur coat in the Capitol building ? I hate that guy for two reasons:He is a treasonous insurrectionist and it's such a terrible, incompetent attempt at a Viking costume.

A moron who can't even do cosplay right.

For good Capitol Hill cosplay, go back four years to KellyAnne Conway's inauguration dress.

And.....why Viking?

As an aside, I also want to complain that the building where the government meets is the capitol, but the city where the building sits is the capital.

Was wondering about the whole sometimes "o" sometimes "a" thing.

Kind of makes sense.

Looking at Parler (right-wing imitation of Twitter) over the past week: If you believed them, there would be millions of Trump supporters protesting in D.C. on Jan 6. One post even expected 14 million people there.

Looking at Parler late in the evening of Jan 6, they all swear there were hardly any Trump supporters in D.C., as the whole takeover was planned and orchestrated by Antifa.

In the span of 24 hours they went from expecting millions of their own people to believing there were hardly any of their own people there and it was all Antifa.

I gotta say - the full throated embrace of conspiracy theories by 10's of millions of Americans has really damaged my faith in humanity. They just jump from one to another CT with no cognitive dissonance. And it is literally 10's of millions of people, enough to get a president elected (but at least not re-elected, this time).

A thought occurred to me. Does DC have a mask mandate? Can you get fined for not wearing one in a public place?

When they arrest some of these clowns, specifically the dude putting his feet on Nancy Pelosi's desk, I just would like to throw in a mask fine, just to add insult to injury as they send them away on felony charges related to storming the Capitol.

What exactly is behind there? I guess she might have tried to enter some place where she really, really, really shouldn't have been, but the killing seems a little trigger happy.

They aren't the brightest bulbs in the box, the supremacist nutters.

Which can come in handy.
