Melania … said Monday that she is “disappointed and disheartened” by the deadly riot at the Capitol last week by supporters of her husband. But in breaking her silence, she also lashed out at people she said have used the tragic event to spread “salacious gossip, unwarranted personal attacks and false and misleading accusations about me.”

She did say violence is bad, so there's that.

Do you think this guy knows he’s saying he’s pro fascist? Or maybe struggling with the definition of socialist was too much of a strain this year and he couldn’t attempt another political term. I hope his “Ohhhhhh shit.” moment gets filmed.
No, I think he is unaware. There's an intellectual and moral low-pass filter in action here. This blaming Antifa thing has always been double edged, to me personally it automatically insinuates that there's a fascist side in this fight.

Her and Trump are the worst improv duo ever. It’s “yes, and” not “yes, but” every fucking time. I don’t think they are capable of making a statement without shoehorning themselves in as a victim. Their supporters are exactly the same. “I love this country, but... “

Speaking of which, glad to see she took her last days to clear up that she is just as bad as Trump and not another one of his victims.

The more we learn, the worse it will get I am sure...
It’s not even like they needed the FBI to warn them. I was warned by work colleagues, the newspapers were warning about it, etc, etc. This was a surprise to NOBODY. The Trump administration was responsible for security or the lack thereof.

At the least, it was incompetence. At the most, it was collusion with the terrorists to make it easy for them to stop the electoral vote counting.

They probably didn't expect the mass "I support you unless you are standing in the way of my white ass" mentality towards cops. Seeing as their leader is such a pillar of loyalty to his associates it would be hard for anybody to predict that. Trump rallies are like a support group for small dick men and women with daddy issues.

When you are the crowd that screams they are "Law & Order" & "Blue Lives Matter", it isn't surprising if those Blue Lives fall for it.

Which leads to a bias that THAT crowd certainly would NOT be the kind that riots or attacks police officers.

Two Black officers who were working at the Capitol during the attack told Buzzfeed News that some of the insurgents they came face to face with were in fact off-duty cops:

“[One guy] pulled out his badge and he said, ‘we’re doing this for you.’ Another guy had his badge. So I was like, ‘well, you gotta be kidding.’”

Another officer, a newer recruit, echoed these sentiments, saying that where he was on the steps to the rotunda on the east side of the Capitol, he was engaged in hand-to-hand battles trying to fight the attackers off. But he said they were outnumbered 10 to one, and described extraordinary scenes in which protesters holding Blue Lives Matter flags launched themselves at police officers.

“We were telling them to back up and get away and stop, and they’re telling us, they are on our side, and they’re doing this for us, and they’re saying this as I’m getting punched in my face by one of themThat happened to a lot of us. We were getting pepper sprayed in the face by those protesters, I’m not going to even call them protestors, by those domestic terrorists,” said the officer.

Couldn't agree more.

I hope we can keep going down this rabbit hole and find out what actually happened and who was involved


Ominous, nasty, but - unfortunately - not all that surprising.

I have always called the things that everyone owns "wire ties", because "duct tape" is for ducts but it rarely gets used for that (although, in fact, it was actually originally called "duck tape" because the backing was similar to duck cloth). Those things that person was carrying were specifically designed for shackling people. Very few people own those things.
