Yes, bomb threats are bad. But they apparently screened the film regardless. Who was the victim of “cancel culture” in this incident?

Do you think the boycotts of the American Civil Rights era are “****** up”?

Mod WarningDiscussion about the actual event seems to have tailed off. Please take discussions such as those about insulting and other terms to more appropriate threads.

Last chance for most of these people is a Trump pardon. No Jan6 rioters were pardoned in the overnight list sent out by the outgoing Trump admin.

Barring a last minute miracle, these people are totally ******.

About 2 hrs left for the CHUDs looking at federal prison time.

Recent example. This chud thing.

I mean, hey it makes the poster in question feel hip, with the lingo and cool probably, but get over yourself.

I have no idea what you are talking about.
Agree on that last. It's clear enough what people are referring to with "CHUD" and presumably it refers back to an old horror movie about creatures who lived in sewers, but I don't quite know why it was revived.

And just like like, the Jan6 rioters have become soldiers of a lost cause.

Don't worry CHUDs, dear leader may have abandoned you, but the federal government has not forgotten you.

Joe Biggs, organizer of fascist Proud Boys, arrested for role in Jan 6 Capitol riot.

Biggs is notably charged with "impeding an official preceding", a charge that carries the potential for much more prison time than the "unlawful entry" charges we've seen for many of these people. He is also charged with unlawful entry.

Probable cause statement here: https://extremism.gwu.edu/sites/g/fi...0Complaint.pdf

It points out that Biggs was photographed with an earpiece and was likely communicating with others in real time.
