    Extremists discuss plans to 'remove Democratic lawmakers' on March 4, FBI-Homeland Security bulletin warns

    https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-new...curity-bulletin-n1259467?cid=eml_nbn_20210303

    These various sub groups in society have been unleashed...& emboldened.

    And have become a serious threat .. as they are fanatical in nature and behavior..

    They are not just a social problem.......but also a security issue.

    Don't be too disappointed when nothing happens.

    After January 6th, is America prepared? It was pretty close then.

    I believe it's impossible to be fully prepared because would-be criminals are always looking for new ways to attack their targets and, by and large, law enforcement is usually reactionary versus proactive.

    A large group is still in denial about "domestic terrorism".
    Hopefully nothing will happen.......... but fanatics are unpredictable . The easy access to guns does not help .

    House scraps Thursday session after Capitol security warns of possible plot by right-wing group to breach the building

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/poli...0.SBO45tHfruFODiGzsRfvsIkdwOAjIY293W-hoOI2CR0

    Q members supposedly "believe" that Trump will be POTUS again on that day.

    (If it does not happen........they will probably just change the date and continue with their crazy delusions)

    Something about mental unhealth comes to mind.

    but then any form of extremism is unhealthy. but it requires some insight into oneself to recognize that.

    And the Trump rhetoric does not help . He is responsible for unleashing a lot of the extremist behavior. His language was never one of peace and calm. It has always been provocative, and rage tinged. He made nastiness a sort of new norm.

    Sure, just like the Leftist protests we suffered through over the summer. Minneapolis, Portland, Seattle, Kenosha, etc.

    ANY extremist group can be dangerous . It is not a party issue. It is a social, culture and security issue. Your list is evidence that the problem is intensifying.

    That's what happens when one group tries to impose their own views on a majority, without taking them into account. People are like springs. They can only be pushed so far without bouncing back.

    The US today is like an arsenal. Everyone has prepared themselves for the worse.

    Portland had riots and destruction for over 100 days. Seattle had land captured and held. Minneapolis suffered billions in damages and had an ex-police officer killed. I’d say one party is far more likely to become violent.

    And when these destructive groups are not being persecuted, and instead the media covers them up, while at the same time anyone on the right is demonized, then our country should fear the worse.

    The majority voted to replace Trump with Biden. This is what happens when one small group refuses to abide by a fair democratic election because they refuse to believe they lost.

    Oh no! everyone be scared of the boogeymen coming out of their swamps to burn Washington! You guys worry about silly ****. You think a few desperate loons are going to take over the country or something? We need to start worrying about real issues, not this silly "insurrectionist" BS.

    Valid point. !! That creates a fair bit of ongoing anxiety. And fear.
    This can make folks defensive and reactionary.

    Aren't the emboldened ones, the ones who have been destroying people's business' and properties? Don't you think the people in this country have a right to defend themselves?


    And you really think the American people can be fooled so easily? Guess again! What I see is a Biden being guarded by over 20 thousand troops, while Trump is being visibly cheered by tens of thousands of Americans. It's a situation the Democrats cannot change, no matter how much spinning the media does, and no matter how many American conservatives are banned from the social platforms.

    The Democrats have turned our country into a volcano that's ready to erupt. It isn't going to be pretty.

    Whatever's false they'll say it's true
    and throw the lies back onto you.
    And what is right they'll say it's wrong.

    Then woe to all, it won't be long.
    When everyone will wear a frown.
    For what is 'up', they'll call it 'down'.
    Then try to make the day a night


    so dark can reign, without the light
