Hopefully 35-yr-old Ashli Babbitt becomes a face of MAGA for what happened yesterday. A young woman who got brainwashed into a cult, and convinced to give her life for that cult leader. 

Why do we have to handle her with kid gloves? It sounds like all personal responsibility of hers for the situation she put herself in is being taken away. I think she was a potentially violent radical willing to destroy the democratic process which keeps our country from becoming some form of authoritarian ethnocentric regime. If this was a Muslim people many would say they were a terrorist. I’m tired of MAGA lunatics being painted as some some misguided gullible bunch that otherwise would be benevolent. These are dangerous radicals.

Apparently a police officer that got hit in the head by one of the rioters yesterday has been pronounced dead after being taken off life support.

No. Impeachment occurs in the House and only requires a simple majority. If articles of impeachment pass, a trial occurs in the senate and conviction requires a 2/3 majority. If convicted, the president is removed from office. 

House Democrats could impeach Trump again somewhat easily, yet there is very little chance of the senate convicting him. To get 17 Senators to convict, Trump would need to do something that is outrageous even for him. Something like Trump leading the mob carrying an AK47 and shooting a senator and a police officer. And it would need to be unambiguously on video. That's how complicit republicans are at this time. 

Okay, my mistake. So impeachment can take effect immediately and the supermajority is for the conviction in the Senate. I think Trump is correct about massive voting fraud! But it could be false evidence presented by compromised experts and authorities.

Very much agree with everything you say here.

Some of MAGA were deplorable ignorant dangerous radicals long before Trump.

But, I think when the dust settles, we will see some people were good people before being brainwashed by the cult of Trump, enabled by half the government, and a designed echo-chamber created by social media giants like Facebook and twitter, that customize content so a person only seeing one version of reality, getting sucked in to that reality being the true one. 

My Dad is a real good man, but he got sucked in to the Trump cult, because Trump's version of reality is the only one he sees every time he opens his TV or computer. Nothing I say can change his mind. If he went to the attempted coup and got shot storming the congress floor barricades and got killed, I would think he was a dumbass for doing something so stupid and reckless, but I'd also be pissed I lost my father to a cult who brainwashed him.

Some right-wingers have been saying that Trump supporters wouldn't have stormed the US Capitol if the media show enough transparency on the actual investigation of the alleged widespread voter fraud throughout the country. For example, they could've visually recorded on camera the entire audit/investigation of all of the election offices in every state throughout the entire country and broadcast it all through channels like C-SPAN and on news shows like 60 minutes.

 They also agree with the Joint Statement from Senators Cruz, Johnson, Lankford, Daines, Kennedy, Blackburn, Braun, Senators-Elect Lummis, Marshall, Hagerty, Tuberville which mentioned:

"Voter fraud has posed a persistent challenge in our elections, although its breadth and scope are disputed. By any measure, the allegations of fraud and irregularities in the 2020 election exceed any in our lifetimes.

"And those allegations are not believed just by one individual candidate. Instead, they are widespread.  Reuters/Ipsos polling, tragically, shows that 39% of Americans believe ‘the election was rigged.' That belief is held by Republicans (67%), Democrats (17%), and Independents (31%)."

"But, whether or not our elected officials or journalists believe it, that deep distrust of our democratic processes will not magically disappear. It should concern us all. And it poses an ongoing threat to the legitimacy of any subsequent administrations.

"The most direct precedent on this question arose in 1877, following serious allegations of fraud and illegal conduct in the Hayes-Tilden presidential race. Specifically, the elections in three states-Florida, Louisiana, and South Carolina-were alleged to have been conducted illegally.

"In 1877, Congress did not ignore those allegations, nor did the media simply dismiss those raising them as radicals trying to undermine democracy. Instead, Congress appointed an Electoral Commission-consisting of five Senators, five House Members, and five Supreme Court Justices-to consider and resolve the disputed returns.

"We should follow that precedent. To wit, Congress should immediately appoint an Electoral Commission, with full investigatory and fact-finding authority, to conduct an emergency 10-day audit of the election returns in the disputed states. Once completed, individual states would evaluate the Commission's findings and could convene a special legislative session to certify a change in their vote, if needed."

"We are not naïve. We fully expect most if not all Democrats, and perhaps more than a few Republicans, to vote otherwise. But support of election integrity should not be a partisan issue. A fair and credible audit-conducted expeditiously and completed well before January 20-would dramatically improve Americans' faith in our electoral process and would significantly enhance the legitimacy of whoever becomes our next President. We owe that to the People."

What's good about this event is that the Trump supporters world is being torn apart right in front of their eyes. Large stubborness requires a proportionally large catastrophe for sanity to return.

Sometimes a system is sent on the path to self-destruction, a supernova, a wiping of the slate, before something fresh can start. Many cases in history of ideologies far worse than this dying in a blaze of glory.

A different type of system which may self-destruct is the severely depressed or suicidal person. But the supernova needn't be a physical death, sometimes is though. 

--

After this latest incident, some of the most hardcore trump supporters will be questioning themselves.

I really don't know whether impeachment or no impeachment would be a good thing. 

 

My 2020th post, how perfect.

Are the people doing this the same people who believe that the world is ran by a communist jewish pedophile cult? And believe in chemtrails, 5g and agenda 21 and all the david icke and Alex Jones crap?

Yes

These people are brainwashed by the right-wing populist conspiracy theory alt-media echo-chamber.

It's not just fringe stuff though, it's also FoxNews and the like. Basically any right-wing media source in the last 4 years. Including stuff like Tim Pool, Brietbart, Ben Shapiro, Charlie Kirk, Jordan Peterson, etc. consuming all that trash ideology adds up to mind-cancer. Their sense of reality is so delusional and reactionary that they have lost all sense of decency and common sense. In their minds their actions are fully justified because they legit believe that pedophile communists are taking control of America. That is their worldview in a nutshell.

Quote

If that is the case, Trump is not the only who is responsible for this civil strife. This has been a long time coming and it's all due to the avalanche of right wing propaganda that has been circulating the internet since it's inception. People don't know what to believe anymore, and a lot of normal everyday people have been radicalized by these kind of ideas and are complicit in this coup. This is bigger than just this one event.

Yes, of course. But Trump was a huge assemblage point for all the worst right-wing tendencies.

Trump basically took stages Orange and Blue and appealed to their deepest and lowest fears, insecurities, gripes, hatred, anger, greed, racism, and nationalism. And they swallowed his con hook, line, and sinker because it felt so good for their egos to get validated. It's like dangling red meat before a starved beast.

That is the epitome of demagoguery.

Hitler did the same thing in 1920's Germany.

Even Trump is not an evil man. He's just deeply wrapped up in a wounded ego that never received the proper love.

Very similar to what Hitler and his followers believed in WWII.

Film can be a great medium through which to promote yellow thinking though. Perspective shifting is huge.

It’s ironic how the right constantly talks about taking personal responsibility, yet they are unwilling to take any responsibility. Blaming this alt-right insurgency against the U.S. government on the left is ludicrous. 

Value signaling seems to be common these days. Tricky mind.

I think MAGA crowd is in their own social media echo chamber and have been so conditioned with fear and misinformation that they truly are scared and believe the election was stolen. I watched some interviews of Trumpers in the mob tonight. They 100% believe they election was stolen and they being patriotic and fighting to save America.

What can one do to deprogram people living in their social media bubbles?

You’ve talked a lot about wanting to see the big picture and raise your consciousness. This is a good opportunity to look at attachments and identification.

Thank you for the work you do my man 🙏

Think for yourself and actually be principled in your stances. If you're going to denounce rioting on the left... also denounce it when your team does it. Stop making the things that you identify with the exception. 

Become aware. Your unwavering allegiance to "your team" is just your allegiance to your own ego in disguise.

Couldn't have said better. Thank you.

Get your ego up out of the situation if you want to see things clearly.

Nice, cutting the bs again, but how do you really expect unconscious behavior to change through that?

Protesting for the undeserved deaths of black men at the hands of the police vs having a meltdown due to losing an election are two completely different things, dumbass.

When you open the box of calling the other names you also open for the other the box to focus on you calling them names instead of addressing your point. You want them to expose themselves by addressing your point instead of giving them the easy opportunity to deflect and focus of something trivial you said on a whim. I know the frustration - being compassionate is hard especially in the discussion itself.

Do you see that he could simply restate his point and stay sure in his identity while deflecting you calling him names?

Calm down lol. I wasn't even talking to you but you're choosing to attack me outright to feed your ego. Take your own advice.

Do you see how easy it is to dismiss you just because you opened the box? He now has the chance to play victim for other members in order to prove his point and uphold his pov.

The progressive slogan to defund the police is probably the clearest example of stage Green stupidity. I understand that they mostly mean to reallocate funds to social work and the like, but a social worker is not gonna stop a crowd of MAGA idiots. That slogan -- defund the police -- is like political suicide.

How does green recognize that it is dysfunctional to destroy the structure one is standing on? Direct experience lol? That could be fatal.

What worries me is that they are creating their own social media sites, to feed that crazy echo chamber of conspiracy. Who know how this will end?

Take a look at Parler, they have almost 4 million of users. That's too much crazy...

Maybe they need to create their own Republic of Donald

:-P

Parler said its membership has jumped from about 4.5 million a week ago to about 8 million. Among its users, about 500,000 were active two weeks ago, and about 4 million are active now, Parler said.
