There are only a few Trump-supporters in my family, and what they each lack in intelligence, they try to compensate for with their egos. They are all openly racist, think that America is superior to the rest of the world and have that "My pickup truck is bigger than yours, therefore I'm better than you" type of mentality.
So are they Democrats?

No different from race bating liberals who think they are better than you because they have more pure thoughts and drive electric car.

Several are educated women, some even minorities.

I'd say it's 50:50, and not at all dependent on education level.

Yeah, I mean, the world would be such a better place if everyone used as much gasoline and oil as possible and if their cars emitted even more pollution. Not to mention if everyone was racist and if we could all own slaves again! We should all be a little more detached from our consciences, because they clearly make some people uncomfortable.

Poor Elisabeth from Tennessee. Partaking in a revolution was never going to be easy.

Trump's delusional sense of entitlement is contagious, apparently. She belongs in one of those "Trump Supporters Say the Darndest Things" compilations.

There's something so childlike in her determination to be part of a revolution.

Still, quite an impressive phase transition for many Republicans in just one day... Graham, Barr, Pence, many others went from complete compliance to practically declaring war.

I wonder if this is the result of reaching "critical mass" finally, or due to the fact that they got really scared yesterday, or that they realized that they lost the last bits of power by losing Georgia.
I watched Graham throw trump under the bus, he's a weasel, I expect him to claim to be a secret never trumper soon.

This is like watching a car crash into a dumpster that's on fire and inside the car is a shitshow.

US Capitol Police confirm death of officer after pro-Trump riot

https://edition.cnn.com/2021/01/08/p...led/index.html

"Officer Sicknick was responding to the riots on Wednesday, January 6, 2021, at the U.S. Capitol and was injured while physically engaging with protesters. He returned to his division office and collapsed. He was taken to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries," the statement read.

An armed standoff took place at the House front door at about 3 p.m. ET, and police officers had their guns drawn at someone who was trying to breach it. As a result of the episode, US Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund is resigning. He said in a statement earlier Thursday that Capitol Police and other law enforcement officers were "actively attacked" with metal pipes and other weapons.

"They were determined to enter into the Capitol Building by causing great damage," Sund said.

"The violent attack on the U.S. Capitol was unlike any I have ever experienced in my 30 years in law enforcement here in Washington, D.C.," he added."

LOL... I haven't read much of this thread today since TC would certainly exhaust me, but I do love how this attack was only a "protest" to him, when all of the BLM protests were called "riots" due to the action of a few.

The hypocrisy is mind blowing, how can someone be so delusional? They violently attacked the government, the president committed treason multiple times - and yet you still hold on to the constitution (2nd amendment) like it is the Bible.

I give up.
Another lie, where have I held onto the constitution like it is the Bible? Any evidence for this claim? I'm not even from the US, why would you even make such a claim?!

Splitting hairs over whether it was a protest or a riot is not a reason to call someone a hypocrite. As the was focus to what happened was the Senate I called it a protest, I've never denied it was violent. I consider rioting to be something to be more widespread - looting, destruction of property, burning cars etc. If it makes people more comfortable and if it will stop the false accusations then we can call it a riot.

I hate to break this to you, but simply because you refuse to perceive it as being a riot doesn't mean that it wasn't a riot.

If hundred or thousands of people breaking out windows of the Capitol building, forcing their way inside and assaulting police officers isn't a "riot," then I'm not sure what is.

Looting happened - yes
Destruction of property happened - yes.
People died happened - yes.

That's more than enough to qualify it as a riot for me. Didn't have your burning cars though as far as I know so you probably disagree.

You try to deny that it's a riot and then try to claim that you said it's a riot. You could really use some work on your basic logic and critical thinking skills, dude.

Please stop wasting people's time with your perpetual bullsh**.

Your begrudging, disingenuous "offer" to call it a riot is about on a level with calling Trump's too-little, too-late speech that he posted on Twitter last night a concession.
