A week ago MAGA terrorists, incited by Trump, his son, his lawyer, and months of lies by far too many folks in the GOP and media, tried to stop the Constitutional election process through a terrorist attack on the Capitol. 5 were killed. They are now trying to change the subject.
What happened last week was horrific. Five dead that day, two subsequent suicides. Pay attention to the people trying to change the subject and ask yourselves why. Might it be because they bear some responsibility and want to avoid consequences?
Jessica Campbell, ‘Election’ and ‘Freaks and Geeks’ Actor, Dies at 38
Some of my favorite memories of making Freaks and Geeks are of watching Jessica Campbell and @sethrogen figure their relationship out in improvisations. Jessica was so funny and an amazing, thoughtful actress. What a terrible loss.
This has moved past the insurrection attempt. We’ve learned that GOP members gave tours to insurrectionists, coordinated with their leaders, and are trying to carry guns on the House floor.
They're putting barriers around the Capitol, but the threat is on the inside right now.
YouTube suspends Trump!
But only for 1 week. With YouTube's "3 strikes" rule, Trump gets to incite violence 2 MORE TIMES before it bans him!
Are you kidding?!
RT to tell @YouTube, @SusanWojcicki:
Prevent more violence, ban Trump PERMANENTLY.
We need to cut through the baloney. Until Republicans forthrightly admit that Biden *legitimately* won the election and that Trump's lies about it are the cause of the violence, their phony calls for unity deserve nothing but contempt and derision.
It’s simple. These GOP “leaders” NEED to acknowledge they lost the election. If they don’t, they’re inciting violence by making people believe their democracy was stolen. Until they acknowledge there was NO evidence of mass voter fraud, their followers will continue to plot.
Warning: violent video. This footage shows rioters viciously beating police at the Capitol entrance. I hadn’t seen this clip, via @Storyful, until now.
This is what a violent insurrection looks like. This is what the GOP thinks there should be no accountability for.
A source close to the White House who is in touch with some of the rioters at the Capitol said it's the goal of those involved to stay inside the Capitol through the night.
“A source close to the WH who is in touch with some of the rioters”
The elected officials who amplified & repeated known lies about our elections served as drum corps to insurrectionists.
The drum major in the House was @GOPLeader Kevin McCarthy.
Rep. McCarthy bears unique, elevated responsibility in all this chaos. He must resign.
Many behind the #CapitolRiots don't see a loss - they see a victory, and proof they can accomplish radical actions, says domestic extremism expert @jaredlholt @dfrlab who for weeks monitored escalating, violent rhetoric and coordination - things that authorities did not act on.
Another line of inquiry. Tips welcome at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let’s be very clear.
The officials urging for no serious consequences after Wednesday’s attack on our country - including the impeachment, removal, expulsion, and/or indictment of officials who aided, abetted, or incited the attack - are opening the door for it to happen again.
WARNING: Violent graphic content. We've published video of the moments leading up the fatal shooting of Ashli Babbitt. At one point, the Capitol police blocking the door to the Speaker's Lobby step aside and let the mob pound on the glass to get in.
