What amuses me about the whole patriotic “invasion” of the Capitol has been the panicked response from the Establishment. Here are a few examples:
“We have to do a full review of what was taken, or copied, or even left behind in terms of bugs and listening devices, etc.,” said Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-Ariz.), raising the possibility that foreign adversaries could have easily infiltrated the crowd that encircled the Capitol.
But wait, it gets better:
“If this were an organized, fully intent terrorist group — and there were certainly terrorist activities yesterday, but I mean, al Qaeda style — they could have killed a lot of representatives and god knows what else,” Gallego said.
You mean the terrorist who walked around with Nancy Pelosi’s lectern, or the terrorist who was sitting behind her desk? The whole thing looked more like a college fraternity romp, no matter how scawwwwy it appeared to the timorous at the time.
To be serious for a moment: from all accounts, there were about 200,000 pissed-off Trump supporters in D.C. last Wednesday, of which about 0.001% decided to “invade” the Capitol and disrupt the oh-so august proceedings of certifying the results of a fraudulent election. Imagine if that percentage had been, say, 13% — the percentage of Americans who actually fought in the Revolution under George Washington — and if those 26,000 people had been fully armed and quite intent on overthrowing the government?
But they weren’t, of course. They were, to coin a phrase, mostly peaceful people who just wanted their voices to be heard.
But that seems to have been enough to disturb the Establishment from their everyday job of fucking over the people in this country:
Beyond the security question, this person told me the mob action has been a psychological blow on the DC bureaucracy which didn’t think such an open expression of tangible disrespect for the government was possible. In other words, the capitol mob was a blow to their status, and Washingtonians believe the entire protest represents more than just anger at the election outcome: the disrespectful spirit of the day represents a real threat to their power going forward. This is one reason for the paranoia of Democrats at the moment, and they worry that more such protests are not only possible but likely. Part of the reason there is such fury on the left to run Trump out of office right away is that DC is genuinely afraid of him and his followers.
And here’s a news flash for these pricks: we’re not going away, no matter how hard you try to suppress us.
One last giggle:
Among other things, the fact that apparently some Capitol Police were friendly with the protestors who entered the building have federal bureaucrats wondering whether they can fully trust their own security personnel.
Just remember, socialists: these are also the people whom you are going to send out to try to disarm American citizens.
Good luck with that shit.
