    1. they are at about 4-5 a week at this point. Every last one of them should see the inside of a jail cell for no less then 10 years

    1. @Uriah Heep . Wow you really can’t think for yourself can you, to many sheep’s. Who’s yours daddy Q, or trump, or both..

    1. Except they view us as the knuckle draggers. In the months since January 6th, I realized just how much of the anger and fear I feel as a progressive towards them they feel towards us. The difference is I use science and a common set of facts and ethics to inform my position. They’re basing their position on a set of outdated brutal ethics that are going to destroy western civilization. There’s no room for black and white anymore. If they won’t allow some shades of grey, then they need to be stomped.

  1. *REPUBLICANS without LINCOLN:* _Intelligence_
    Republicans have two parts of a brain, ‘left’ and ‘right’.
    In the left side, there’s nothing right.
    In the right side, there’s nothing left.

    1. @reality so they support equality, freedom to choose your own identity, and diverting some funds from the police to other programs that actually help society? That’s a good fact to know, thanks.

    1. The Oaf Keepers took an oath, all right–a vow of rebellion against the Constitution and the rule of law!

    1. Nothing more delicious than an organization called “Oath Keepers” ratting each other out.

    1. Lol I love that people are arguing about just how long the GOP has been fascist not whether they are or not.

    2. @Daniel Hawthorn there is no “Antifa” leader. Antifa is a mindset. If you’re against fascism, you’re antifa. If you’re against antifa, then you’re for fascism.

  2. I would bet a dollar that Jr. Don, camo wearing, gun totten, poster boy of “grandiosity” , was the communications conduit between Daddy Don and the “militia”. How clever.

    1. @David Lannigan has anyone stopped you from voting?So are you telling me the country is full of wimps who can not make it on voting day.That you need months to vote,that you should not require an ID to vote.But you need an ID for every thing else.Has any republican stopped you from having an education?Seems you leftists control the education department,so why are you complaining?Anything else you want to blame on me?

    2. @grant towner In my country you don’t need ID to vote. Or get hospital treatment (free at point of delivery) . I’ve also never had to queue for ANY length of time at a polling station at ANY election. Our voting fraud rate is incredibly low, and candidates view the counts carried out by volunteers. They then accept the election result.

  3. GOP reminds me of Saddam just before his end. After they wreck their countries, all of these kinds of leaders end the same way.

    1. Don’t forget, it was the US that put Sadam Hussein in power as their puppet. Your right, it didn’t end well for him.

    2. Wow! Mantreaus. When I was reading your comment I was hearing the sweet sound of Led Zeppelin’s, “Gallows Pole” playing in the background. Sweet Justice, I’d say.

  4. We need to hear what autocracy and fascism are, explained over and over, to collectively articulate what our seriously dangerous challenge is. Get’r done, Dems!

    1. @gary quarty “Pardoning” crooks who who aid & abet Trump’s SPURIOUS destruction of our United States Democratic Republic IS fascist – and Trump’s done it.
      WorldWatching

    1. I think there’s actually a strong case? They were literally declaring their willingness to declare war on America. Some would say that is in itself a declaration of war. Thus, Treason.

    1. @The Zionist Advocator Mexico would extradite….they don’t need to import fugitives.

  5. The Pinnacle of obstruction of justice, is the current Republican party. It’s actually shameful. We elect leaders and they become followers.

    1. @Empressa that “Kennedy” appears to be one of those fascist apologist trolls. It’s previous comments are… antagonistic and angry

    2. Even the people of this country are not as good ‘following’, as the Republicans holding office, supposedly ‘representing’ all the People. Now they are representing actual CRIMINALS! AND AGREEING to DESTROY, not slowly change, the government. Truly hard to understand that they, all of them, don’t agree it’s dangerous!

    3. I havent voted for a Republican since they lost their mind back in 2008. They showed their true colors after Obama was elected… We saw some of the most ridiculous lies and BS. Then when they knew for sure Hillary was running, they spent 3 years trying to discredit her and make up anything they could to smear her. Bogged our system down with Benghazi BS and wasted millions of tax payer dollars. GOP=TRAITORS

  6. The wheels of justice turn slowly. But with tremendous torque. DOJ is going to do this right under the able leadership of Merrick Garland. When all is done, a whole bunch of insurrectionists will be doing some serious time.

    1. Hello, I hope your day has been enjoyable and blessed! I am Thorsten from Key West Florida and you?

      I hope this year brings prosperity happiness and love all over the world

    1. ~MSNBC is Satan’s propaganda machine. The Peacock is Satan’s symbol.
      Satan is known as the Peacock Angel Melek Taus/Shamash/Utu.
      The castrated Crown Prince of Allah/Nanna Sin.

  7. Coup d’etat: is the removal and seizure of a government and it’s powers. Typically, it is an illegal, unconstitutional seizure of power by a political faction, the military, or a dictator. Wikipedia

    1. “Patriots” is the title given to the winners. “Traitors “is the title given to the losers. its time to lock these traitors up.

    2. @Richie Tattersall; ‘sedition’ – conduct or speech inciting people to go against authority

    1. Or…….The man from Mara-a-Largo! (Sea to Lake, or in the final cut:. From ocean to puddle

  8. Imagine how deranged a person has to be to believe that they, along with a bunch of other undisciplined weekend warriors, are going to overthrow the U.S. government and make their porcine reality-show savior the king of America. And some people actually argue that there’s no mental health crisis in this country…SMH

    1. C.I.A. runs them same overthrow system worldwide & it worked until Thailand put a boot strait up a plan paid for by China & organized by your very own C.I.A. But a lone wolf burnt the script & keep China from getting Thailand’s oil/food which was needed to have an Asian Century.

    2. @Mainely Problem is some of the military, like ex-Lt general Flynn, are part of this movement. The military isn’t necessarily the friend of democracy. I know they’re some really good generals who respect the Constitution but not all of them.

    3. @Juan Blanco yea learn English a bit better and try writing that again thanks …
      What’s an Asian century?

    4. They aren’t just some outside entity, they are us and have been amassing power from within our institutions. It’s a serious threat to democracy. Everytime white supremacists aren’t taken seriously or are ignored completely, it gives them more power. Democracy can’t be sustained without equality and people working together in good faith. Democracy isn’t something you when, it is something you have to continually struggle for.
