How worrying is this, if true ?????

And if true, it may explain why the police did not put up much resistance, after all they'd seen some of them the day before and their behaviour was impeccable !

When you see how heavily armed and pumped up some of the rioters were it's a miracle only 5 died.

It's looking more and more as if the powers that be were happy to allow the invasion of the Capitol building to happen so that they could discredit and silence Trump on the web. After all they had no trouble clearing out the protesters and normal services were resumed in a few hours. If they were hoping that this would discredit Trump so much that he would lose the support of his fanatical followers they may need to think again as one new poll seems to have shown his support rising from 47% to 49%

Saw the programme and noted the selective and different application of crowd control methods.

Implication is they were encouraged by the absence of enough law and order folk.
Any offence taken on board is only a literate/cy consequence. Every attempt at humour is just that. No personal insult intended. Standards lowered for trolls.

On Trump, you and I are on exactly the same page... indeed as he is someone who fomented an insurrection against his own country's government, I do wonder what the Americans think lampposts are really for?Wink

Lol I assure you theres no love for trump here I agree hes a narcisstic loon that will be gone in a week, his handling of covid has been a disgrace and many of his radical fans are deranged dangerous loons too... But even saying all that it doesnt mean hes wrong about everything and is also doesnt mean his opponents are necessarily any better. The bias in the media has been astounding. as for impeachment funny how pelosi didnt bother voting for the bush impeachment for the iraq war and his other disastrous foreign policies?
