  1. “The secret of freedom lies in educating people, whereas the secret of tyranny is in keeping them ignorant.” Maximilien Robespierre

    1. @Craig Crawford yes who should know the most => a dictator and the knowledge of history is a Must because we can learn so much how to prevent tyranny and history does repeat itself!

    2. Only uneducated fools can follow party over principle. It is this failure of education and critical thinking that is the greatest tragedy. Those who committed treason against the USA government deserve pity, but also swift and absolute justice. US law and the constitution outline these attacks on the capitol, the very core of our democracy, as treason and their incitation by Donald J Trump as sedition. Those who adhered to, encouraged, supported, or aided these traitors in their rebellion are also culpable for treason, murder, trespass, and federal terrorism according to US law. Life in prison may be too lenient for these criminals.

  2. Authorities : Let’s play a game. First we will let all domestic Terrorists to flee from Capitol Building then public need to identify them.

    1. They didnt all flee over fifty where arrested. The cops where also outmaned 10 to 1 and where trying to defuse the situation.

    2. @Jim Yarbrough except the one putrid pig taking a selfie with a MAGA terriorist!
      Get your facts right!
      Crooked cop lost his job!!!!

    3. @Ghulam Nabi Except thats BS. They are not freedom fighters they are idiots rioting because there man lost the election.

    4. @Oscar Uriarte jr just because they’ll be found, doesn’t mean justice will be served. They’ve got ‘brethren’ in the police.

    1. @grin chi – why would Antifa join a pro tRump riot? – Trump lost. They might have showed up if tRump won. Or did they grow neckbeards and get swastika tattoos, and buy a bunch of Trump gear? A lot of longtime Nazi CHUDS were identified – dumbasses. Masking up would have hid their identity AND protected them from COVID. What a hilarious clusterfuck of stupidity.

    2. @Terra Faye but Sleepy Joe says this is a time to heal. So you need to heal alongside all the stinky, inbred conservatives

    1. ​@Meri Lizzie That’s a really good answer! I’ve been doing what you are doing on so many videos and often on right wing YouTube, it’s not easy so i support the effort. +1

    2. @Meri Lizzie Thank you! A clear, concise explanation of the process. Of course it won’t convince Der Trumpenfuehrer’s stormtroopers. If the only story you listen to is his delusional tweets and, wacko far-right media lies & conspiracy theories, that’s the one you believe.

  3. Last chapters of Trump Dynasty:
    “I WON! Rudy has the EVIDENCE!!” – Donald cries out
    “SHUT UP, DAD!” – someone yells from nearby prison cell

    1. Trump is already history. Who, besides a brain dead portion of his supporters will align themselves with Donald Trump, now or in the future? Socially? Business? Neighbour? Who will want that taint?

    2. @Chris Jan Stam Well, at least democrats do like AOC – laundering campaign $$, Omar – campaign& IRS frauds, hillary – Well there are books on that… Which one(s) are behind bars???? Zip!

    1. @Nikky T. Trumpism was here long before Trump. He has given it a name but he is already yesterday. Trumpism will live on for as long as there is enough gross inequality to breed genuine discontent. And power hungry malcontents happy to exploit the exploited for there own selfish aggrandisement.

    2. AF – We do need changes to be made but look what is happening now. Congress (Senate and House) is in recess while they should have been called back to initiate Articles of Impeachment or activate the 25th Amendment. Doesn’t look as if Pence is going to. Changes can’t be made in recess. Congress should have never left after certifying the election results. Should have gone straight on to Articles of Impeachment of activating the 25th Amendment. By now, the articles should be in the Senate’s hands, not sometime in the middle of next week.

    1. Their looking to sweep investigating the inciteful speech by Trump and Trump Jr and Rudy under the rug. Still Trumps people in DOJ. Would you expect less

  4. Let’s call it “The Trump Riot of 2021”. Then we won’t forget ‘who and when’. Why will naturally follow.

    1. Koup Klux Klan event. Recent words from Benedict Donald Chump ; “when the looting starts, the shooting starts”.

    2. @Shelley Ross Stick him in prison and let him write his book “My Struggle” using his best felt tip pens

    3. We as a nation should never forget that day may it burn into your memory for the rest of your life. So much work to do and so little time.

  5. It is hard for me to imagine what it would feel like for a POC to see a confederate flag waived through the capitol. Tragic and disgusting.

    1. @L H No! Why pass the buck and send them go and pollute other countries! Let the USA be responsible and deal with them!

    2. +Jeff Parker
      This is not a “POC” problem because every ethnic group in AmeriKKKa has a “White Status” and enjoy the privileges under that said status. NO POC! STOP WITH THE POC!!! This is ONLY affecting so-called Black people in AmeriKKKa! Why? Go read the 13th Amendment, go find out what the happened in 1887 when the “CONFEDERATES” got into the Senate and overturned “The Reconstruction Era” legislation and began to pass “Jim Crow” laws that are still on the law books, go look at the Black’s Law Dictionary and look up the word Black that says that a so-called Black person has no standing in law, go look up the SCOTUS Case: Dred Scott vs. Stanford. This is and has always been a WS gov’t solely against so-called Black people. Understand???

    1. To bad it’s about division and class warfare which is pulling part our nation through critical race theory.
      1920’s Sufferjets/ Women Libers women received the right to vote.
      1963 Fair Wage Act- it’s illegal to pay women different than men.
      1964 Civil Rights Act gives all Citizens ( who are not white) rights.

  6. Trust me! Everyone of these “Patriots” will cry like babies during their sentencing hearings. Seen it happen for 40 years in the courtroom.

    1. @EXQUISITEMAD No! Just the idiots such as yourself. They will do time and they will cry just like you!

  7. There is precedent for what needs to be done: Charles Manson was not physically present when his followers committed their crimes.

    1. Agree totally with the sentiment, but (at risk of being a pedant), capitol, not capital – otherwise, a lot of people are going down! Good luck to you and stay healthy.

    2. @Wood Rat RC Could be, my chief told us if we participated in any protest off duty and get arrested we would be suspended, lose vacation & or get terminated….

  8. Trump supporter: “We’re Here For The Insurrection Act”
    Me: “Ironically…You will learn the meaning of Insurrection…the hard way”

    1. @czechmate absolutely the law must be respected. No trumped up charges. I consider trumped up charges evil. Justice should be blind and fairly applied. Those who are in position and with expertise should be allowed to pursue appropriate charges irrespective of political considerations.

      I do think we are dangerously close to treating this as a “boys will be boys” sort of way. That position will only encourage bigger problems.

      I’ve seen cops escalate situations to life and death over issues as trivial as jay walking or loitering, so the idea that they can’t make arrest and charge firmly for this behaving is laughable.
