  1. Before McConnell’s Republican Party embraced trump, Putin and *itler were the go to references for fascist behaviour.

    1. Yes let’s ignore the 3 billion in damages and two dozen murders sanctioned by the left all summer long. You mucks are hypricates. If you didn’t speak out against BLM/ ANTIFA riots shut up already.

    2. @A Peppermint Candy You mean “communists”? Oh, that is BS of Russian propaganda! Fascists are on the right side! It means TRUMP!

    1. Stop call our fellow Americans Terrorist or Rioters.
      They are Patriot.
      You call Hongkongers and Syrian Radicals Freedom Fighters while called our fellow Americans Terrorist.
      Are you crazy? If you love those Hongkongers or Syrians, go there and live there. Treason

    2. @Naura Sal
      All Redcaps are fair game now. You’re either with us or against us.
      None can plead neutrality.

    3. @Naura Sal excuse me but why are you putting words in my mouth? when did I ever call “Hong kongers and Syrian Radicals” Freedom Fighters?

  2. He knew what he was doing, and he enjoyed it. When he is arrested, Cruz, Giuliani, Brooks, and his horrible offspring should be arrested right along with him. Why hasn’t he been arrested yet?
    Whatever troll is reading these comments, you know exactly how much more damage he can do.

    1. In all fairness i been seeing nothing but violence for months now from the left so seeing all of that for so long got me in the mindset that violence is the only way.

    2. @Robert Biondo the ADL tracks these things. 90% of the political violence done in 2020 was done by the reich wingers

    3. Yes let’s ignore the 3 billion in damages and two dozen murders sanctioned by the left all summer long. You mucks are hypricates. If you didn’t speak out against BLM/ ANTIFA riots shut up already.

  3. Those people who spoke at the rally should be charge for treason. They are trying to instigate coup on the government of the day.. They should be held accountable of what has happened last Wednesday..They shouldn’t go unpunished…

    1. @Naura Sal
      It’s irrelevant who funded who. Taliban destroyed Afghanistan in order to enforce their ideology of hate. And trumpers are on the way to do the same thing to America. Different country, different faces and skin..but similar motive.
      I agree with you that we did not get much by funding those radicalized places, while our healthcare system is in like shopping for Lamborghini right now and our infrastructures degrading everyday. But intolerance for those with opposite politics is not going to benefit any one. People like ted cruz who lack back bone and keep changing color for their ambitions depending on which way the wind blows are hollowing out our nation.

    2. @Jerome Hugh no that were the terrorist of BLM they are the ones that made the republicans think that peaceful protesting was ok

    3. @Ld Butram
      Not saying that looters in BLM rallies should be justified though they had a valid reason to protest. Looters are looters.
      Armed Rioters in D.C. took it to whole new level by attacking house and senate pedaled by the lies of narcissist who has been claiming even before the election that if he loses then the election will be fraudulent. If he was not ready accept the results of election he should not have run in one. Ego of an individual is not greater than Integrity of a nation.
      Had the BLM rioters been armed there probably would have been a pretty big blood bath.

  4. All the speakers at that so-called rally are all complicit with the rhetoric! Arrest and charge them all with inciting insurrection!!

    1. The Democrats are behind the riots from the start. Very soon they will brag about how easy it was to deceive everybody. Nancy is turning into a zombie, the boils are in her blood.

    2. Yes let’s ignore the 3 billion in damages and two dozen murders sanctioned by the left all summer long. You mucks are hypricates. If you didn’t speak out against BLM/ ANTIFA riots shut up already.

    3. So far, 25 of them have been charged with domestic terrorism. The powers that be are working on it. They’ll be able to work harder as soon as Trump is gone.

    1. @Naura Sal – they are terrorists, insurrectionists, traitors, rebels, fascist scum. Just like their fascist leader.

    2. Sedition is planning an attack. Treason is the execution of seditious conspiracy, so the US law says. Change “sedition” to Treason and I agree.

    3. @Mario it matters because it’s your country’s laws and you don’t know them, and you are OK with that ignorance. You obviously have access to the internet, and yet you don’t bother to educate yourself. US Law on this matter is written in fairly plain language that even you could understand. Here…let me help:

      “Seditious Conspiracy and Federal Law: The Basics

      The federal law against seditious conspiracy can be found in Title 18 of the U.S. Code (which includes treason, rebellion, and similar offenses), specifically 18 U.S.C. § 2384. According to the statutory definition of sedition, it is a crime for two or more people within the jurisdiction of the United States:

      To conspire to overthrow or destroy by force the government of the United States or to level war against them;
      To oppose by force the authority of the United States government; to prevent, hinder, or delay by force the execution of any law
      of the United States; or
      To take, seize, or possess by force any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof.

      Free Speech, Sedition, and Treason

      In order to get a conviction for seditious conspiracy, the government must prove that the defendant in fact conspired to use force. Simply advocating for the use of force is not the same thing and in most cases is protected as free speech under the First Amendment. For example, two or more people who give public speeches suggesting the need for a total revolution “by any means necessary” have not necessarily conspired to overthrow the government. Rather, they’re just sharing their opinions, however unsavory. But actively planning such an action (distributing guns, working out the logistics of an attack, actively opposing lawful authority, etc.) could be considered a seditious conspiracy.

      Ultimately, the goal is to prevent threats against the United States while protecting individuals’ First Amendment rights, which isn’t always such a clear distinction.

      Sedition differs from treason (defined in Article III of the U.S. Constitution) in a fundamental way. While seditious conspiracy is generally defined as conduct or language inciting rebellion against the authority of a state, treason is the more serious offense of actively levying war against the United States or giving aid to its enemies. Another way of looking at it is that seditious conspiracy often occurs before an act of treason.” https://criminal.findlaw.com/criminal-charges/sedition.html

    1. All liars will be judged for extinction, the small liars and the big liars. The KING is back waiting for the last prophetic word to be fulfilled. It has started.

    2. When the next tRumpatrocity happens, the blood will be on Mike Pence’s hands for allowing it to happen. We know its going to happen as long as tRump is there.

    1. 100% proof that the rotten apples
      Don’t fall far from the tree.
      Where is George Washington to chop the tree.

    2. They might pay. What about his golf resorts and his hotels? He needs money. Will the banks step in? Not likely after this nightmare. He has killed his old brand and his new one won’t be that profitable.

    3. Yes let’s ignore the 3 billion in damages and two dozen murders sanctioned by the left all summer long. You mucks are hypricates. If you didn’t speak out against BLM/ ANTIFA riots shut up already.

    4. @Mark Trump is responsible for the damages and the loss of life. The Trump family needs to be held accountable for all their crimes against America..

  5. “It’s gonna be wild.” –Donald Trump. Sounds like somebody knew something was gonna happen ahead of time.

    1. There was a reason he had so many lawsuits. And it wasn’t because of legal issues. Trump has a knack for creating distractions.

  6. Nicole almost glossed over the fact that Trump didn’t March with his minions. It’s huge that he didn’t participate. Mr. Bone Spur coward.

    1. Right. His bone spurs were acting up that day, otherwise he would’ve certainly been right there with them. Poor trumdydumpty !

  7. “We’re coming for you.” “We’re gonna do it.” “I’ll be there with you.” And then, ALL of the Trumps ran back to the White House and hid in the basement, while their deluded followers took the heat.

    1. They are all like little power hungry narcissists .. can’t wait till their kids read about them in history books

  8. “Here’s an easy way to figure out if you’re in a cult: If you’re wondering whether you’re in a cult, the answer is yes.”
    ― Stephen Colbert, I Am America

  9. The best part is, “the patriots” are using Chinese gear they bought off Amazon to raid American capitol.
