    I do equate it to the rioting mayhem of ANTIFA/BLM/NFAC and other Leftist radical mobs.

    But, the reaction of Democrats is interesting! They all but completely ignore the arson, looting, and wreckage caused by Left-wing radical groups all during 2020, and raise hell with the POLICE instead.

    But, the Right-wing forces that assaulted the Capitol building are getting the full-blown "Gestapo" treatment, with various police forces, the FBI, and other special investigative cadres involved, holding various 'inquisitions' that are advertised as probably lasting for MONTHS into the future.... And, that is right and proper -- BUT -- during the forthcoming Biden administration, you can bet your last food stamp that nobody will ever apply equal force into examining ANTIFA/BLM/NFAC!

    Yeap, that was my response as well, wrong but understandable. The left is blind to their own double standard. They think they're free to lay siege on our cities for nearly a year; yet to them, not a single act of violence from the right is acceptable, and if found, the perpetrator must be erased from the face of the earth forever.

    I confidently expect that once there ARE investigations into Antifa and once these investigations prove that a very substantial portion of them was financed by the Kochs, the Billionaire Cabala and possibly even Trump himself that you will return here to eat your words

    And pigs are departing on Runways 12 and 17 very shortly.

    You "expect confidently" based on WHAT? Your own boutique conspiracy theory?

    You might like to eat your own words unless you're in a hurry to depart -- don't miss that flight!

    What happened on the 6th is what always happens when you are in a Cult. Can anyone here give me one example where being in a cult and following a dipshit cult leader was a good idea that ended well?

    When you lie to your followers constantly for 4 years with ridiculous unproven horseshit that does nothing but get these idiots frothing at the mouth, what did you think was gonna happen?

    It was a violent act of insurrection, sedition and a disgusting attack upon the heart of our Republic. An attempted coup to impose an authoritarian leader at the head of our government. Had the capitol police used vastly more force, deadly force, I would cheer for them. I have ZERO sympathy for any of them who are caught, prosecuted and imprisoned.

    No Tolerance and No Quarter to Traitors!

    I don't necessarily disagree with you, Walter, but I must say that starting with the ANTIFA,BLM,NFAC, et al, rioting, arson, looting, and mayhem in 2020 -- and now followed by this 'Capitol Building Affair', I'm reminded more and more of those events that occurred during the dying days of the Weimar Republik in Germany during the early 1930's -- PARTICULARLY THE "REICHSTAG FIRE" (thought of as a very important, pivotal 'false-flag' event).

    Just for fun, substitute "MAGA Mob" wherever you see the word, "Communists", and, then substitute "Democrats" for "Nazis".... Not an exact fit, but surprising in some parts of its similarity to recent events.
