Records: Trump Allies Behind Rally That Ignited Capitol Riot

Post by maestrob » Mon Jan 18, 2021 11:37 am

The AP reviewed social media posts, voter registrations, court files and other public records for more than 120 people either facing criminal charges related to the Jan. 6 unrest or who, going maskless during the pandemic, were later identified through photographs and videos taken during the melee.

The review found the crowd was overwhelmingly made up of longtime Trump supporters, including Republican Party officials, GOP political donors, far-right militants, white supremacists, off-duty police, members of the military and adherents of the QAnon myth that the government is secretly controlled by a cabal of Satan-worshiping pedophile cannibals.

Do we have a traitor for a President still in office today? :mrgreen: What should be done about the rest of the Republicans named in this article?

IMHO, all should be investigated by the FBI and, if warranted, prosecuted.

If they are representatives and senators, they should be barred from serving in Congress if the facts bear out.

Sunshine is the best cleanser.

I really don't have a clue how to stop the spread of all the conspiracy theories that would result from this, or the tearing apart of our democracy, but let the chips fall where they may. As a society, we must assert the primacy of reality again before it all goes up in smoke.

Let's hope Congress can walk and chew gum at the same time.

It's only a few centuries since traitors in Britain were hung, drawn and quartered. Given Americans' respect for tradition, they might like to revisit this for the Republican traitors. :D

Yikes! How terribly barbaric!

Like castrating and hanging Black men who were falsely accused of raping white women in our Southern states, a practice that endured until as late as 1981!

Yes Brian. Tonight my wife and I watched the first part of a documentary on the KKK on the History Channel. It was too appalling, and we decided to wait to watch the second half. It didn't have much I didn't know, but the old photos and film are deeply disturbing.

People are endlessly inventive when it comes to cruelty.

Whoa there, pardner! Most all the folks named in that news story are white ladies.

Women for America First.

Moms for America.

Okay, okay, so these ladies glommed onto The Donald. Hey, don’t a horseapple draw flies?

Irregardless, you cannot draw and quarter the flower of white American womanhood!

Fair point. Perhaps we should just draw and quarter the horseapple?
