Come right in. Selfie?
This is the truth! And have you noticed we haven’t heard a word from the idiot republicans that encouraged this invasion of OUR Capitol building! So typical of the big mouth Republican bastards like Cruz, Graham and mcconell!
This makes complete and perfect sense, actually.
You see, when the colored races protest, they are attempting to upset the “status quo”, while when the white race attempts to suborn others, they are merely trying to reestablish their rightful place at the top of the political “food chain”.
And if you don’t believe that, just read their handy-dandy guide to life and living, “Mein Kampf”!
This is the reason Donnie John is stuck when asked if he’s read any good books lately – ’cause Trump KNOWS that answering with “Mein Kampf” is a really big no-no!
(Examine the slogans on some of the shirts worn by the Trumpians attacking the U.S. Capitol if you need further proof!)
Numerous similar cartoons, ALL TRUE OBSERVATIONS. Enough already. The G.O.P. knew Trump was a LOSER from day One, but didn’t care. HE was their Village Idiot and thought they could make him “Presidential”. Now they realize they were wrong all along and he’s sunk the ship of fools . . . .and almost Democracy in four short years. The Worst President Ever and yet some would vote for him again. A sad day for America and the entire WORLD.
Racist cops? We got no racist cops, how could we, they all went to a two hour class in non-discrimination.
I “looked” at all of the footage and “didn’t” see anything that hasn’t been happening “forever” with the exception of the “Hoods and Crosses”. Nothing changes unless until we are ALL FED UP WITH THIS CRAP!!!! Start at the TOP (President) and remove any Politician who “supported” him and his “Agenda” you know what they all have said, “I like how HONEST and TRUTHFUL he is”
Let’s face it, there was a fix in. Trump was at one end of Penn Ave and told his hypnotized hillbillies to march up to the other end and destroy the place. Apparently there were people like Barr’s jail guard battalion who were leading the parade. They were friendly with the police in front of the capitol who let them in to overrun the few guards inside the building. They used sprays to overpower the guards and broke windows to gain admittance.
They were also friendly after they left trashing the Capitol building, laughing and taking pictures of each other. They need to be investigated.
Trump refused to call in the guard, the chain of command was botched up by loyal Trump appointees. This was an attempted coup but something went wrong, the hillbillies just wandered around in a daze while the leaders ransacked the place and went to certain rooms and stole the information they were looking for. They knew what they were doing and what they were looking for.
Trump expected a bigger fight, that is why he built that huge wall around the White House to protect him will the battle raged outside. This was all premeditated and not a spontaneous event.
Its ironic that the covid Trump spread stopped his revolution dead.
It failed miserably and now Trump is in deep stuff. This is the end of the Maga movement. One hopes that our long national nightmare is now over.
It opened my eyes.
An officer with the Capitol Police has now died from injuries sustained during the insurrection. So much for “peaceful protest”…https://www.nytimes.com/2021/01/08/us/brian-sicknick-police-capitol-dies.html
You know, in the 1930s the reactionary Nazis got their inroad to power by convincing the German conservatives to permit them into the conservative tent. Of course, once they got enough power they turned on the conservatives, too. The current batch of U.S. reactionaries has been using the U.S. conservatives in the exact same way, and the conservatives fell for it, hook, line, and sinker for years. Lindsey Graham acknowledged his start of awakening the other day when we got far too close to an insurgent mob destroying one of the pillars of democracy, the legislature (which has already surrendered far too much of its power to the current imperial president who created many EOs that he did NOT have the Constitutional power to create since they usurped the powers of the legislature and of the states). Thankfully, unlike Germany back then, the legislature did not give up to dictatorship, though a few reactionaries in Congress still tried to fold democracy, and one (Hawley) even saluted the insurgent mob.
As to Trump using the mob for his own profit (for which he should be punished to the full extent of the law): You can’t spell “sedition” without i d i o t s.
I hear crickets chirping in panel two. Does that count?
Well done, Rob Rogers. Shared.
Police know how to handle “anti”. When rallies are protesting the establishment they are by definition “anti”. However, when the rally is on the same side.. it’s met with enthusiasm and encouraged. Greeted as friends.. Come on in! My house is your house..Brothers!
Now now, let’s be fair, many of the disabled people the Capitol Police arrested and dragged out of Moscow Mitch’s office in 2017 were white!
Impeachment next week? NEXT WEEK!!!??? How about TODAY!!!
News video from Australia showing Trump family members celebrating the insurgency and encouraging the insurgents who were creating the coup attempt to fight. Mark Meadows and some others were joining in:
Remember the lessons of history, PLEASE:

Wise up. It is time for moderates and actual conservatives to take the Republican Party back from the reactionaries, legally depose them from their positions of power all over our nation, and for the leadership of both parties to make sure that they can not infiltrate a major U.S. political party ever again.
All of the electronics in the Capitol Building must now be considered to be potentially breached and not safe to be used.
Also, it is essential to remember how recently Trump fired so many high level military and security experts and replaced them with his boot lickers. Was that timed?
Another question that arose today that is related to some Capitol Police high-fiving the insurgents, their beforehand refusal of help from the National Guard, and their understaffing for the 6th: why had they locked away the hoses used for spraying cold water on those who break through the barriers?
Hey folks – just one of my oddball thoughts. What could be better proof of one’s presence in the capitol building than a selfie showing you with a police officer who is testifying against you? I’m have not idea if I am right, but it makes sense.
From a science-fiction fan friend of mine:
What is the difference between the US Capitol and Mordor?
One does not simply walk into Mordor.
Mix in a deal/fix/agreement with the Trump Administration and racism and this is what you get.
Right on, Rob. This belies our very real problem of continuing inequality among races, economic groups, and political allegiances.
Now rioting and attempting to take over the government is a white privilege…
Trump has shown the white supremacists, Nazi lovers and skinheads that he is their true leader. The white cultists have their leader and will stop at nothing to make him king.
We all knew that sooner or later some fascist apologist would come along and try to rationalize the attempted overthrow of the US government by armed conspirators while casting shade on people protesting racism and police brutality, the only question was which one it was going to be, and look who didn’t disappoint.
That’s about right.
Chaps my ass. Riding a tractor seat, plastic truck seat, anything that causes your butt to sweat, rub and turn red. It feels just like chapped lips.
Cold urticaria. I just recently learned the name of this problem. I was discharged from the Army in 1960 and my discharge papers only said “allergic to cold”. Everyone who comes into my house says, “OMG it’s hot in here!” I can only stay in stores for a short while in the summer because they are too cold. The best way I can describe it, is that cold is felt as pain.
I don’t understand how any of Washington, D. C. law enforcement agencies couldn’t see this coming. I don’t do social media, but even the internet and youtube gave so many indications.
It feels like I’m back in the 60’s watching chaos on TV.
Fascist cops walking arm in arm with fascist terrorists. Imagine that.
The difference between the untouchable class, Blacks, and the highest Master Race class of Whites.
The mob built a gallows in front of the Capitol. At least one rioter had zip-tie handcuffs. They beat a policeman to death with a fire extinguisher. The insurrectionists (yes, I WILL use that word) planted pipe bombs at RNC headquarters, DNC headquarters, and the Capitol. Police found a cooler of Molotov cocktails in a rioter’s car.
And, just to show what fine people they are, they literally took shits and smeared their feces all over the Capitol.
Yet 45% of Republicans, and some posters on GoComics, think that’s fine. Because BLM. And “they” made “us” do it.
Gods help us all. Our fellow man won’t.
Say or think what you will about the unrest last summer but it was immediately apparent to everyone – even old white guys like me – that the response at the Capital didn’t look anything like when American Citizens of color marched in Washington. ~ If there was any doubt remaining about a systemic issue in terms of how authority reacts to white people versus people of color when they protest or dissent, it was on full display for all to see on January 6th, 2021. Shameful…
