ShitShow of Jan 6th in Washington, D.C. was Entertaining.. Wasn’t it?

As many of you know, today’s pro-Trump protests in DC took some rather interesting turns, both literally and metaphorically. Here is a quick montage of the more infamous photographs from the shitshow floating on various social media sites. While these protests caused little real physical damage, the reputational damage to LIEbral scam promoted by this country in rest of world is considerable. These protests are also a teaser trailer of the sort of stuff we will see in 2021, because of the consequences of COVID-19 related shutdowns such as persistent high unemployment,small-business closures and bankruptcies etc.

What do you think? Comments?

    I like the part where they don’t call those people “terrorists” … because they use violence to achieve a political aim, and do not wear a uniform.

    Again, is it because they’re white though? Are you allowed to ask that question in the “US and A”?

        Yeah nah, newspapers not gonna call 10,000 people – majority White – who are voters for the other party, “terrorists” … because, remember the last time somebody used that word “deplorables”?

        They/She kinda lost the election there if you remember your history.

        Just bringing back this delicious morsel of reason:
        http://whitewatch.info/2012/11/13/the-top-ten-differences-between-white-and-non-white-terrorists.aspx
        The Top Ten Differences Between White and Non-White Terrorists

        Glad that’s cleared up (hat tip : Juan Cole)

        1. White terrorists are called “gunmen.” What does that even mean? A person with a gun? Wouldn’t that be, like, everyone in the US? Other terrorists are called, like, “terrorists.”

        2. White terrorists are “troubled loners.” Other terrorists are always suspected of being part of a global plot, even when they are obviously troubled loners.

        3. Doing a study on the danger of white terrorists at the Department of Homeland Security will get you sidelined by angry white Congressmen. Doing studies on other kinds of terrorists is a guaranteed promotion.

        4. The family of a white terrorist is interviewed, weeping as they wonder where he went wrong. The families of other terrorists are almost never interviewed.

        5. White terrorists are part of a “fringe.” Other terrorists are apparently mainstream.

        6. White terrorists are random events, like tornadoes. Other terrorists are long-running conspiracies.

        7. White terrorists are never called “white.” But other terrorists are given ethnic affiliations.

        8. Nobody thinks white terrorists are typical of white people. But other terrorists are considered paragons of their societies.

        9. White terrorists are alcoholics, addicts or mentally ill. Other terrorists are apparently clean-living and perfectly sane.

        10. There is nothing you can do about white terrorists. Gun control won’t stop them. No policy you could make, no government program, could possibly have an impact on them. But hundreds of billions of dollars must be spent on police and on the Department of Defense, and on TSA, which must virtually strip search 60 million people a year, to deal with other terrorists.

        Nobody is calling BLM or black people terrorists much either.
        Nor black guys who commit multiple murders.
        Are you trying to say 10,000 terrorists were congregating? How often does that happen?
        You’re not making any sense.

        By the way, to me the whole terrorist moniker is complete BS and propaganda anyway. Best not to go along at all.

        Well … those people that participated … can now enjoy the fruits of “liberal cancel culture” … and look for jobs elsewhere.

        Enjoy the facial recognition and identification, China-style, right in your home of “US and A”.

        Waiting to see the sentences: People who get pregnant are women
        People who menstruate are women

        … to get marked as “hate speech”.

        Meanwhile, boys still can’t join Girl scouts …
        while girls can join Boy scouts.

    Of course, if this was #BLM, there would have been a different outturn. Some folks just act like bitches and babies when they can’t have their way! WEEE! WOOOH! WAAAAHHH!

      Real white power and white privilege is to behave in a threatening, criminal manner, and yet be certain of a very low probability of lethal retaliation … which is a completely different experience if someone was to try it while being a person of colour.

      Imagine 10,000 africans/asians/arabs coming together towards the White House, lel. They will not be giving them a chance to pay for a guided tour.

    “ShitShow of Jan 6th in Washington, D.C. was Entertaining.. Wasn’t it?”

    OMG it certainly was.

    I hope you enjoyed it as much I did. The best thing thing about it, to me at least, is how it was so perfect that if it never happened, I would have had to dream it up. It was that predictable and in character. I feel even more confident in my convictions about the future doom of America after yersteday.

    Nawwww, I wasn’t really entertained, although on first hearing about it I guffawed then loudly laughed aloud for a couple minutes.

    I wanted running gunbattles! Attacks and counterattacks! Wounded bodies artfully falling over railings! Fires raging against the evening silhouette of Washington, DC! M60E3s! Helicopters strafing the Capitol terrace and sending chunks of pillars flying everywhere! Someone producing an RPG-28 or at least an -75 when National Guard armored vehicles arrived! Tear gas volleys smashing through windows! Blood! Screams! Last gasps! “They’ll never take us alive, don’t tread on mUGHHHHackk…”

    All I got was idiots playing tug-o-war with fence barricades and a guy wearing antlers?

    Buuuuttt, then…at almost age 65, and precociously informed by nightly news since the late 1960s and into the middle 1970s, of rioters burning major US cities, Vietnam “War” body bags, Kent and Jackson State gundowns of college students by militia and police, Chicago police battling protestors at the ’68 Democratic convention, and constant skyjackings, including one in November, 1972, when highjackers of a Southern Airways flight threatened to crash it into a nuclear reactor at Oak Ridge National Laboratory…well, I guess I am a little jaded…

    So don’t mind me if I chuckle only once more, then switch to the History Channel’s “Search For Ghosts of Ancient Asteroids Fated To Destroy Earth At Anytime Or In A Few Million Years”.

    **YAWN**

    Reminded me of Belarus, except it was over so quickly.
    And all the moral outrage was of course reverse video.
