  1. “Comity” is a word I am proud to have just looked up. We need so much of it right now.

    • _Cortesía_ is the Spanish equivalent of _comity_ and in this case it’s the demonstration of respect and education that is expressed through good manners. I would find it extremely difficult to respect any traitor regardless of party affiliation. It just happens to be that these traitors are in the Republican Party.

    • @Marco M My hope is for more education which will lead to an increase in respect, which would include self-respect: something traitors are usually in short supply of.

    • @David Lee
      Also had to look it up; I thought this was about GOP blocking some committee.

    • Unfortunately, the GOP never wanted to be part of a co-op… they would rather have a political party that reigns over all others. Time to remove more Confederate statues from public view.

    • I just assumed it was close to Amity as in ville horror.

  2. The inaction a 100 days in is hardly surprising given the complicity of the GQP but it’s still sad and frankly embarrassing.

  3. Certain republicans are afraid that their roles in the insurrection will be uncovered if a real investigation is conducted. And we know who they are.

    • @Rick Morranis lol…thanks for the laugh

    • @keir farnum – Probably Bobert or MJG. Future investigation will tell.

      @bo ter berg I agree, but, I think top to bottom, they all need to pay a heavy price. Those on top the most.

    • @Rick Morranis Evidence??? Sources???

    • Susan Teeter | April 17, 2021 at 8:19 PM | Reply

      @bo ter berg bull, the insurrectionists made a choice, they are responsible for their actions. Them and all the instigators. Don’t drag all the media through this, it was Fox “entertainment” and other far right media outlets. It was a planned and executed, desparate attempt by Republicans to retain power and we’re patiently waiting for the day they are all held accountable. The fact they are still participating in running the country is sickening.

  4. I don’t know how the people working in the Capitol can muster the self control not to haul off on some of these MAGA in the same building… god bless ‘em

  5. I don’t think it’s a good idea to let these miscreants think they have that much power.

  6. andrea Perry | April 17, 2021 at 1:55 AM | Reply

    None of them should be trusted. They proved they will destroy the country to stay in power.

    I cannot believe Republicans are still perpetuating the big lie! When are their constituents going to wake up and demand they start governing and stop this clowning around?


    • The _Awakening | April 17, 2021 at 8:22 AM | Reply

      They rioted and attacked fellow citizens, stop watching NBC and you might know this. Btw attacking fellow citizens is far worse than attacking the source of our problems, Congress.

    • The left peaceful protesting? 🤣🤣 did you forget about all summer when BLM was murdering burning and looting in the streets like the animal thugs they are???? How about antifa yesterday? They are back on their burning spree. You’re a FOOL!!!!

    • @No Show Joe about 90-95% of the blm protests were peaceful, you chose to only see the ones that did become violent and most of the looting were by organized gangs who were not part of the protests.

    • @Pogo The fact that they call a whole movement by dog whistles, like “animals” & “thugs”, reveals it as a troll account, with the purpose of race baiting. They have no interest in rational, honest discourse.

    • The Devil All The Time | April 17, 2021 at 10:20 PM | Reply

      @Pogo The 90 % who blocked the cops from stopping criminals from looting and burning 🤣. That’s called an accomplice for you animals…

  9. Seriously powerful words and sentiments in this segment. It really brings it home.

    • Bill Robbins | April 17, 2021 at 9:37 PM | Reply

      Those who still support the lie, shouldn’t be eligible to run for another term. You can’t be anymore anti-american than that. Support and defend the Constitution. ❤️🇺🇸❤️

    I would have to have a legal arsenal of weapons to continue working around those snakes in the Capitol. I would never feel comfortable around them.

  11. A democratic country with a democratic government one party the Republican trying to make a coup in the United States of America, I thought this can never happen, but here it is right in front of your eyes

    • @PJ Celeste America will be a single party autocratic state soon! The Dems are too weak to stop the takeover! Same thing happened in Germany in the 1930’s

    • @Gerry Ward – “The Dems are too weak to stop the takeover!” – That’s an opinion, not a fact.

    • @Gerry Ward the Dems are the ones I see running this country into the ground

      @Tony Smith “Most debates about cancel culture are often battles over the usually powerless fighting for the right to self-definition and the push-back from the usually powerful to keep them in their place. You do not have to put someone in their place, if they accept their place. However, a person who questions their place reshapes the nature of the relationship.

      “Many groups are now challenging homophobia, sexism and racism. By employing terms like ‘snowflake’, the anti-woke protesters seek to dismiss these fights by characterising them as close to nonsensical, or a threat to traditional values, and reinstating the perspectives of the usually powerful as closer to the truth.”

“To them there is nothing wrong with what they say, they are just stating the facts. ‘The problem is that people have become too soft and politically correct and what we need is to go back to the way things were.’ But the argument that anyone should toughen up so you may land a rhetorical punch about their sexuality or race is not persuasive. People do have a right to free speech but they do not have a right to be protected from the consequences of their speech. Especially, there is no obligation on the target of such speech to assist the speaker to feel good about themselves by denying how they feel. “

    • @phil spd then you’re detached from reality and the people and places you trust for information are lying to you.

    More like asking a criminal to investigate their own crimes.

    Can you imagine being her…..she goes to work every day ……another one of her coworkers has been killed….yet she doesnt know if anyone has her back. And over half the people she was sworn to protect say its no big deal….. Efin pathetic….just vile

  14. Hold the republicans accountable

  15. Some GOP in the House, the Senate and the State Houses are continuing to encourage insurrection.

  16. GOP leaders have abandoned patriotism and embraced fascism.

    There’s something truly rotten in a country if one of your political parties is actively working to destroy your system of government

    • The _Awakening | April 17, 2021 at 8:24 AM | Reply

      Democratic party right?

    • @The _Awakening you are an effing traitor. Enjoy your 💩hole country while it burns down .

    • @The _Awakening WRONG! it’s the trumplicans who want a right wing facist government not a democracy

    • John DiGiacomo | April 17, 2021 at 1:56 PM | Reply

      The Awakening, you REALLY must read about the rise of the Nazis in 1930’s Germany. The Republicans are following the blueprint. Demonize the other, spread the big lie, use the minority in the Congress to block legislation then blame the majority, use violence and “nationalism” to foment insurrection. Trump wanted to become the “Hitler” of the Republican party, and the Republican sycophants the new Nazis. If you don’t see it now, you’ll regret it later. They failed the first time, and so did Hitler. We have to be vigilant to make sure THEY don’t succeed the second time.

      @The _Awakening The other worrying thing is the stupidity of the Republican voters that refuse to see what’s right before their eyes. America is a s***hole country and it’s exactly what you deserve

  18. brilliantly said, ty both. remember this when it is time to vote in 2022 and 2024.

    PTSD is debilitating. Ask any war veteran. Ask any woman attacked. Ask any child in a dangerous house.

    • Dinero Kid1603 | April 17, 2021 at 6:53 PM | Reply

      You can get PTSD from anything not just from being in war.

    • @Dinero Kid1603 Isn’t that what the OP just spelled out, in detail? Combat PTSD is most commonly known, but PTSD can result from any trauma, whether from sexual assault, domestic violence, child abuse, a car accident, neighborhood violence, etc..

    • Dinero Kid1603 | April 17, 2021 at 9:01 PM | Reply

      @H K S I know what it is because my Auntie has PTSD and she’s a military veteran. And my grandfather had PTSD and he was a military veteran. I also have another friend that didn’t even serve in the military that has PTSD. I’m very clear on what PTSD is bro. I just stated that you can get PTSD from anything.
