The Increasing Danger of America’s Domestic Terrorism


  1. How many Trump supporters does it take to change a lightbulb? None. Trump will say that he alone fixed it beautifully while his supporters are still applauding him in the dark 3 weeks later.

    1. @Randy R Randelson I’m sure some of his supporters would refuse electrical lighting completely and say they’ll only accept a fossil fuel kerosene lamp solution. Then some other of his clever followers would nod and say he for sure has got some spare fossil fuel, then go and fill up the broken glass lightbulb with gasoline and screw it right back into the socket!


    1. @john frank said “There is no organized entity as ANTIFA.” ANTIFA is classified as a domestic terrorist organization in the state of New Jersey.

    2. @j classic… you comment but have no idea. I am in New Zealand and we have the same amount of ANTIFA here. How you ask? It is internet based.. there is no physical organisation. there are small individual cells that operate to oppose Fascism. You must be proud of your stupidity (or just be a Fox entertainment consumer)
      mic drop…

  3. As a moderate, I’m proud of Clinton *and* Bush. Both made mistakes and were cast out by their parties, but somehow, they both agree on what’s right right now. *And it isn’t what Trump made*

  4. “The president bears responsibility for Wednesday’s attack on Congress by mob rioters,”

    ‘He should have immediately denounced the mob when he saw what was unfolding.”

    “Some say the riots were caused by antifa,” There’s absolutely no evidence of that, and conservatives should be the first to say so.”

    “These facts require immediate action from President Trump — accept his share of responsibility, quell the brewing unrest and ensure that President-Elect Biden is able to successfully begin his term.”

    “Let’s be clear, Joe Biden will be sworn in as president of the United States in one week because he won the election.”

    — Kevin McCarthy
    January 13, 2021

    “January 6th was a disgrace.
    American citizensAttacked their own government. They used T€RRorism to try to stop a specific piece of democratic business they did not like.”
    “Fellow Americans beatAnd BL00.d.i.e.d our own police. They stormed the Senate floor. They built a gallows and chanted about mvrdering TheVP.”

    “The people who stormed this building believed they were acting on the wishes and instructions of their President.

    “They did this because they had been fed wild falsehoods by the most powerful man on Earth — because he was angry he’d lost an election.
    AMob was assaulting the Capitol in his name. These criminals were carrying his banners, hanging his flags, and screaming their loyalty to him.

    “There is no question that PresidentTrump is practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of that day.”

    –Mitch McConnell, February 13, 2021

    “The war is finally over. But when will people realize that it is possible for any of us to be manipulated by domineering and powerCrazed individuals, who know how to motivate the masses in order to misuse them for their own ends. While they keep well out of the way in safety, they have no hesitation in brutally sacrificing their people in the name of “patriotism.”

    — Günter K Koshorrek
    BloodRed Snow “The memoirs of a German soldier on the eastern front.”

    Trump: “And when you storm the Capitol in my name, don’t worry, because I’ll be there with you!!”
    But when Ashli Babbitt went down, Trump was no where to be found.

    MAGAs should not be allowed to hold any rallies. We all saw what happened the last time they got together for a rally.

    Allowing them to hold a rally on the 18th
    is like letting ALQaeda hold a rally at our nation’s Capitol after 9/11.

    1. *What part of,*

      *the 2nd impeachment case was Weak and Corrupt, and would’ve been thrown out at any Local Courthouse,*

      *don’t you understand?*

    1. that’s why it’s not “hypocrisy”: they don’t hold any REAL views.
      they just spout some ideological phrase that *_supports the end-result that they prefer._*
      when next issue comes up, they chose OPPOSITE ideological phrase … bc it supports THAT preferred conclusion.

      it’s how “small gov” lives next to “LAW AND ORDER”

      it only works if their base has attention span of a goldfish.

  5. As it is with anything in life, our awareness only comes from our interest to educate ourselves. Every American should invest one hour a day to research current events.


    1. @Scott Bigler
      Naa… gramps.
      Democrats turn to do a Benghazi type of investigation.
      Except more of the GOP will be embarrassed.

    2. @kmlckd typical response by someone who has decided not to have an intelligent conversation on a subject. Good luck, have a nice day. 👍🏻

    3. @Scott Bigler nah, not gonna waste my time on a bad faith actor. You have a nice day as well. Enjoy being proven wrong throughout your life.

    4. I cannot wait for 2022 when we get have are own commisson …the 2020 mostly peaceful domestic terrorism commission

    1. @Paul Wilson of course it was proven Paul. You’re showing how uninformed you are. Simply ask your phone
      ” did Russia help Trump win in 2016?”
      Yes, it’s that simple.

    2. @Jock Young “and while the commission did find inappropriate meetings with people like Paul Manafort, I have never thought any of it was a big deal.”
      the campaign had dozens, if not hundreds, of secret and shady contacts with the russians. they lied about every single one, to everybody, even under oath.
      trump obstructed justice multiple times trying to cover this up.

      previous candidates who were approached by russia went to the FBI. the trump campaign didn’t, and trump didn’t feel it was something he should do.

      all of that IS a pretty fcking big deal.

    3. @Lee the dossier wasn’t fake, it was an actual dossier.
      and it had nothing to do with the actual collusion.
      you’ve been lied to and you never bothered to check.

    4. @Metal Rulez III “did not win the 2020 election”
      you’re silly.
      he won the electoral college vote by a landslide.
      that vote was legit, not matter what the popular vote was.

      if y’all want to think trump lost because of cheating, then you’d have to want the president elected by a popular vote.
      because otherwise any cheating didn’t mater.

    1. @Shane Guinn point taken, though I feel that probably half his supporters suffer from Dunning-Kreuger and are too dumb to know that they’re dumb. In their mind, they are just as smart, if not smarter than everyone else.
      So the problem becomes unfixable.

    2. @Nick Dionne maga folk are the fascists.
      and there’s no major marxist movement in the US.
      that’s just silly paranoia.

    1. @Lee The violence in the summer of 2020 was a disgrace and only distracted from BLM’s cause. But that does nothing to diminish the violence and antiAmericanism of the insurrection. Your whataboutism is totally lame.

    2. @Sarah F. 4.2
      We are having some difficulty in Florida because we are open. Covid peaked last week according to Advent health. It will ebb and flow like the tides. But I won’t be celebrating when others are afflicted with it. And I won’t celebrate when you are locked down again which is , inevitable.

    3. @Margo a la Moto
      Thank you for being so civil. It is not a whataboutism. One isolated protest on January 6 has been described by the president as the worst attack on our democracy since 911.
      I am calling bull. These politicians have said they care more about Main Street than anything. But they condoned the violence on main Street,
      I never condoned the violence at the capitol. Quite the contrary those dummies gave conservatives a black eye. Now it’s turning into one damned big propaganda opportunity for the left.

    4. @Jock Young officer dorn died look it up fool …you know jan 6 the only person that died was a female patriot in the hands of pelosies brown shirt…

    1. This country was founded and continued by people who believed in propaganda. Natives did not dump tea into the Boston harbor and they did not sell Manhattan Island for a couple a bead necklaces. African enslaved people were not inferior to whites. Women in Salem who were burned at the stake were not actually witches, just a bit too opinionated for their male and some female counterparts. Folks who believed that every citizen should be treated fairly were not communists in the 1950s.

  6. Every person that threatens a member of a school board or an election official is a domestic terrorist. Partial list.

    1. @Northwest Gardener nope. He didn’t start the Afghanistan war. He did fabricate evidence to start the Iraq war.
      I wonder if he let bin laden escape because the plan was to go into Iraq the whole time.
      It was bin laden that caused the Afghanistan war. Then the W admin went as far as outing Valerie Plame and her husband because he discovered there was no Yellow Cake (nuclear material) going through Africa to Iraq. Both were CIA analysts.
      The movie Shock And Awe is fairly accurate.

  7. I think it’s too late for McCarthy to begin telling the truth. It’s gone too far and anything he would say in regards to the truth would be dismissed by … well … everyone at this point.

    1. Blm is a terrorist org prove me wrong i seen countless videos of thugs sorounding people in the street making them say blm and hold up there fist…that in the lawbook is domestic terrorism…so explain yourself and dont use that pathetic excuse cause of being mad at slevery.

  8. People in America needs to be educated what this country stands for ,fought for , people are ignorant of the real threat we are facing now.

    1. @Richard Chase but hey, let’s just throw that aside because “Portland riots blah blah blah” and praise MAGA and downplay January 6th and let future attacks come to fruition and let hundreds to thousands of people die and then rinse and repeat because “Dems Bad, Republicans good”

    2. @taranvainas Deep dude. So what you’re saying is go for the head, or hold people like Donald Trump accountable. Dang, mad respects my man. You said it very well

    3. @taranvainas if you don’t think you are about to go after thousands of “terrorists ” in this country you are going to face 100 million people. Nobody I personally know will let that happen.

      Trust me….you go after American citizens like some kinda terrorists in the middle east and you’re going to murdered millions.

      Good luck you horrible fascists

    4. @MysticiaDev Side The first heads to be crushed are those of the leaders of terrorist groups. And at the same time expedite the action of Justice against Trump and against his most direct allies.

    1. Your country let that circus into government, maybe deal with that clown US, the world just snickers at you.

  9. Remember the bombing in Oklahoma? ,a driver running down protesters, January 6th? But I guess it’s the gop’s right to take American lives.

  10. I think we all need to be aware of terroristic threats within our own country and learn how to protect ourselves and our loved ones from being abused by said individuals.
