    Great another Timothy McVey……
    It wouldn’t be hard for cops to infiltrate these groups (Vet the cops though)

  4. Remember all those neo-nazi’s in Charlottesville, with their Home Depot torches and Dockers pants? 🤔😅😂
    Well, once you’ve stopped laughing at that mental image, remember that they’re still here, waiting for the day when their parents give them enough allowance money to afford another trip to DC. 😉

    What happened January 6 and in Republican States with their election lies is the abandonment of Democracy in favor of Authoritarian minority rule.

      Let’s be honest, our constitution supports minority rule. In the Senate, California with nearly 60 times the population of Wyoming get same number of votes. In the presidential election, a Wyoming vote is nearly three times the vote of a Californian. In the Constitutional amendment process, states representing less than 10% of the total US population can keep the majority from correcting these inequities. Thus we have a tyranny of the minority.

      @ruth depew which also enables corporate types, if they corrupted the right officials, to employ them as a shield.

    • Authoritarian rule is not necessarily a bad thing depending on who the minority is. For example, Jesus is known as the “king of kings”, right? Majority rule can be even more evil, lest we forget 75 million Westerners voted for Trump last U.S. election….

      @Il Was I wonder what Lincoln or Eisenhower would think of Trump or the current crop of Republicans?

    The problem with a family member turning in an extremist relative is that so often the whole family is radicalized.
