Default Terrorist Maga Thugs attempt Coup

A defeated Republican President, aided and abetted by Republican members of Congress, incited a terrorist mob today, to violently storm the Capitol, plant bombs, vandalize property and to try to overturn the results of the presidential election that ousted him from office, based on a torrent of lies and conspiracy theories.


How will tRUmp and his fascist maga cultists attempt to burn down our country next? They still have 2 weeks.

I'm glad we were visiting my son and grandson. I would have been more fearful on my own not fearful as much as anxious ya know?

The poster of the OP is correct in labeling these people as both "[t]errorist[s]" and "[t]hugs."

But it would be wrong to smear all "Maga" types with this broad brush.

Moreover, one wonders if this poster was just as outraged when left-wing thugs rioted late last spring, and summer.

When the ANITFA and BLM were in the streets some were violent, vandals and looters.
And too many on the left gave the violence a pass.
Now some on the right are violent, vandals. Trump seems to have given a pass and let some surrogates stir up a few idjits in the crowd.


Peaceful protest are a right, no matter the POV of the actors.
Violence is crime, no matter the POV of the actors.

Broad brushing any group is to often dishonest, lazy and blindly partisan.
Cops shooting protesters without cause is criminal. Whether they be BLM or MAGA. (A woman died today, she was wrong to try an climb into a hallway but there was ZERO need to shot her in the face.)
MSM and Social Media blocking Trump's voice at this time is at the best questionable. At worse it shows (again) who's has more power to reach the U.S. public. The president of the U.S. or the private media companies?

President Trump stated clearly that people ought to peacefully return to their homes. Kindly point out with links where President Trump "excused" the violence.

Democrats and their violent Leftist allies have condoned destruction and mayhem throughout the Trump Presidency. This pearl clutching outrage over the same tactics Democrats endorsed is nothing but rank hypocrisy.

After the last year of defunding the police and turning people breaking into federal buildings into "peaceful protestors", Lefties now call on the same police to stop "violent rioters"...

Do I advocate it?...Of course not...

Just pointing out the typical Liberal/Media (redundancy alert) hypocrisy...
