Sunday Reads: Whitelash

This attempted coup is disgusting…here are a few thoughts on the violence this past week.

I think it all stems from the fact that a black man was elected President some years ago….tRump supporters have something in common. They are white supremacist, bigoted assholes.

Just waiting for…

    Liberal redneck for your viewing pleasure.

      His vocabulary is a bit limited for my taste.

        Since he hates this country so much and has had devastating effect on the lives of our citizens he should lose his citizenship and all of it’s entitlements ASAP!

          I did not get that from what he said — I believe he is trying to reach others of his (apparent) ilk in language they can understand. He clearly does not approve of Trump or the domestic terrorists. The only quibble I have is that he appears to believe they are incompetent idiots. I believe some were not and were prepared and truly malevolent.

    Time for consequences- Biden to concentrate on the future, the rest of us to make sure the consequences are addressed.

    Some good news: Reuters reports that Blue Cross Blue Shield and Marriott are suspending contributions to the lawmakers who voted against the Biden certification. If more companies would do so, we can more easily replace these congresspersons with people who believe in democracy.

    There’s also video of this. Horrific. I only hope Officer Sicknick was quickly unconscious. Every one of his attackers, and the onlookers, should be locked up for life.

    Watching a video of this and was so frightened for Officer Goodman — I thought that white mob would lynch him. What a relief that he escaped. He deserves a citation for bravery, a raise and a promotion. A new Medal of Honor (since Trump has stained the old one).

    Whiney white men find out what it’s like to be treated like every one else.

      I have been reading here every day for a long time but haven’t commented in forever but I want to say this: She is odious. Not one redeeming value. Her heartfelt condolences and sympathies to the dead terrorists is really galling. These stupid fascists want reconciliation and for us to let bygones be bygones. I am sorry. Trump and his cronies planned to execute the entire Congress following the playbook set forth with the Reichstag fire so that they could seize power and institute their theocracy or fascist dictatorship or whatever they planned.
