The Right Calls for Civil War On Parlor


Recommended Posts

I think it was talked about leading up to the election that the outcome would probably result in right wing violence, which obviously we have seen play out. It has all been incredibly predictable so far, outside of the Capitol security's ineptitude. The next stage I think most predicted was some ongoing violence, maybe some genuine operations by militia groups, that would be soundly and swiftly silenced by anti-terrorism forces that expose these amateurs for what they are, which hopefully has an effect on the rest that makes them question whether they really want to die over this.

 

The x-factors IMO are law enforcement sympathizing enough to make the militia ops more effective than they should have been, and the use of explosive devices.

Talk of trying to protect America..........     .......while actively trying to infect America. Interesting times.

Already posted but I bet a lot of people don't click the links so didn't see this

A lot of them aren’t amateurs. I’ll say for a third time the idiots who showed up were not the ones to worry about.
 

Timothy McVeigh had his reasons. He was there at Ruby Ridge as an observer. He was ex-military, just like a lot of the people lurking in the background.
 

A ton of ex-military come home and end up being police officers. This is true, but they’re gatekeepers and not the fuse. It’s the ones who come home and plot who we have to worry about now. It’s a legit threat. It isn’t confirmed yet, but the guy who had zip ties possibly had top secret level clearance and was ex-military. He’s one of the guys I’m not worried about...
 

What happened in Nashville on Christmas Day is a harbinger of things to come, except that guy only wanted to off himself and be famous apparently. These people think they’re martyrs...and we have 500 million registered firearms. If the Republicans do not step forcefully right now then it’s only going to get worse for us over here.

Do you get Russian links everytime you search Google?

That's right, it isn't actually all that hard if you care about maintaining quality on your product.  It's not engineering hard -- it's giving a damn hard.

 

That said, social media gave no hard damns as they allowed their algorithms to create bubbles of information to people.  

And they're on the list for serious reforms.  Or at least, they better be.

My brother is ex-military.  He isn't an asshat.  My step-mother in law is ex-military.  She isn't an asshat.  My grandfather was ex military.  He wasn't an asshat.  I worked with an artist for a while in a collective.  He was ex-military too and guess what... Not an asshat.

 

My grandmother though was a conservative Italian from the 1940s.  Do the math on that one.

I'm really hard pressed to see the value of social media.   They raised so much money and got so many users, but I really can't see the value.

 

I'd like to see Section 230 repealed and then go back to blogging.

This week though — I’ve honestly been happy to see the de-platforming start.  These people — especially the most violent ones — need to get the full anti-terrorism treatment.  Can’t use a phone.  Can’t use a credit card.  Can’t catch a flight.  Can’t rent an apartment.  Can’t get a job.  Can’t have custody of their kids.

No-knock arrest warrant served by US Marshals.

Serious consequences.

 

Well, the "most violent ones" should be in jail.  Violence is against the law.  

 

As for the rest, it gets tricky.  It would have to be determined by intelligence who might constitute being on a terror watch list.  It's clear that list needs to exist for Americans.  

It's really quite fascinating.  We have a group of people that had no issue with surveillance of American Muslims, to a group of people that will be outraged they might be the target of surveillance while supporting an insurrection against the USA.  Ironically, the surveillance apparatus they supported will now be used against them.  Dumbfoundingly, they didn't anticipate it happening to them after supporting an insurrection.  

But as for targeting civilians for surveillance, that does get hard.  I would imagine the FBI and CIA already has a list of where to look.  Unfortunately, the actions of the kooks has now given the government a reason to expand that surveillance.  

 

And of course this expanded surveillance will be blamed on Biden, and not the insurrectionist that stormed the Capital.  It's inevitable.  

Really, the only hope is that the Republicans that in a single day realized they might be the target of some people for not supporting their radical views realizes they have to make a stand against them.

The value is in advertising, with a massive consumer load.  $.001 per click at 2.7 billion users is good money.  And as long as they keep people clicking.  

 

Watch "the Social Dilemma".   It might help to clear things up.

One of my first thoughts was that these people should know what America did to suspected terrorists after 9/11.  People got locked up and never seen again, without a trial.

 

And here, these militias thought... I'll overthrow an election on my livestream!

 

It's likely the FBI has a subpoena for every cellphone that entered a geofence around the Capitol, and is now building case after case.  This isn't necessarily even PATRIOT act stuff, it's simple police work.

I've experienced similar absolute closed mindedness as displayed here by ChynaBiden.  

The end result was the fact checks sites are all far left wing and he wasn't watching socialist propaganda when I suggested he watch "the Social Dilemma" which is quite damning of social media.   

 

Bottom line is we have a subset of society that is absolutely and completely closed to any information outside their bubble that they need to believe.   They simply are not open to any information outside of bubble.  Period.  

 

This is a problem.  It needs to be addressed in some reasonable form.  It's a tough problem to tackle, but hopefully moderate GOP members will now be a little more open to confronting this freedom of information issue.  They were fine with it, right up until they realized they were a target for not falling absolutely in line with dear leader.  Or at least hopefully they now realize the consequences of completely open and free information.  

 

I don't want to suppress information, but we've got to find a balance.  Not that I think a balance fixes it....some are just to far.  But a balance might help in the next coming decades.

It is, and its dumbfounding what these people thought.  They thought they'd go down in history against the deep state?  They thought Trump would protect them?  They thought they were patriots for subverting an election process?  

 

Who knows, but what is clear is they didn't anticipate being considered terrorists, of whom they despised.  

 

We've seen the reports of right wing extremists being an intelligence issue.  So what do they do?  Go out and prove it.  

 

Hard to believe, but yet here we are.
