Not sure if I said it. However, I did believe that they mostly wanted their factories back and that Trump wont be dumb enough to actually do all that shit he did for four years. Charlotteville was the breaking point to me, guys parading like the fucking SA and SS, and he pretty much refered to them as fine people? Fuck that. That's clearly not the America of always open factories, but the Jim Crow America we were seeing instead.

EDIT and ADDENDUM

Look like "Worked for Trump" as a stigma have gone from meme to reality.

Remember the Legasov's Cost of Lies speech in HBO's Chernobyl? Look like the Trumpers gonna pay their debt to truth, a overwhelming debt.

I have the faint hope that this is the wakeup call for Pence to remove Don. I would if I heard extremists chanting about hanging me.

What the world is seeing here and now are rioters with piss poor clothing (cosplaying?) style, bad taste in iconography (a badly drawn snake? for crying out loud) and no planning at all (this coup COULD have succeed with a bloodbath, easily).

The thing is that for all those guys that thought they could come out of the bushes with their racism and hate, they have nowhere to hide and no one to blame but their own stupidity.

The Beer Hall Putsch wasn't super well planned either, just saying.

I see a lot of people with years of service in the public sector myself.

Also for People who wonder something regarding the 25th. Note that this lawyer is against the 25th being applied, but not because he is a trump supporter, but because he thinks the 25th is too good for trump - He'd like him impeached instead. (At least going by the 2 previous videos regarding the riots).

Unfortunately, that is not necessarily good news... Not saying why, because it could give Guiliani ideas, which he should actually get on his own. Should is the catchword here...

While the House could impeach the President on Wednesday, the Senate isn't going into session again until the 19th (when the two new Senators from Georgia will take their seats). While they could draw up a trail...by that point it will be 24 hours or less until Biden takes office, which will probably be a more pressing matter going forward, than kicking the lame duck on his way out.

As he said, both things aren't mutually exclusive. However, under the application of the 25th, Trump could run again in 2024, which isn't the case if they also impeach and remove him.

Funny thing about that is that was what made Lincoln great. At first he didn’t really think about freeing any slaves. He was more concerned about preserving the union. The south, like Trump supporters concerning Biden’s win, just automatically assumed he would turn against their interests and seceded. Lincoln ended up freeing slaves only as the civil war kept going on and he was slowly backed into a corner. Lincoln would likely have just been a normal president had they just given him a chance to fail first.

Trump was given that chance. While their was protests over the election, it didn’t get to the point of civil war like Trump supporters are starting to make it look. He was given his chance. He was divisive, addicted to golf, unable to take any responsibility for his failure with COVID which led to the one success for his admin, the economy, being stripped away as well. He was given his chance and failed.

Only if they specifically vote to also ban him from running (which they can only do after they vote to convict).

No body in that list but plenty behind them: https://www.protocol.com/bulletins/b...h-tech-players

plus:

https://www.politico.com/news/2020/1...acebook-436672

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/08/20/t...-big-tech.html

Well, perhaps they were only there for the elections and now their role is over.

No, I don't think you do. A lot of germans weren't into that at the time, at least not mayority as we mostly made to believe due to German's propaganda at the time. The cost of the WWI and economic crisis hit them as hard as it could. Private sectors were down, so people turn to gov. related business or military when there weren't other options. When Hittler happened people were GTFO of the country even before the war started.

To add on the German example, famous rocket engineer Von Braun was more or less threatened. It seems easy to say "resist" when you are in a comfy chair or 14 years old. But try and think again when you are a family man who know what happen to people who made Hitler angry. Only people attracted to Nazi germany imagery in USA are far right nutjobs, who sugarcoat it in romantism, like they do with the Confederates.

While a lot of the insurrectionists were larpers, some of them were police or had actual military training. The capitol police seemingly let the mob in, and they knew where the offices were. It’s concerning. “Deep state” should start by vetting their own first

Exactly. Part of the point of that article was that the "Deep State" was a bureaucracy where a lot was left to the interpretation of its employees. So I wonder if they aren't just going to interpret the attack on the Capitol as "not a big deal".
