I live in one of the bluest states in the country and we have a pretty active white supremacist militia.  On election day 2016 a caravan of about 20 SUVs drove around town for an hour or two blowing air horns at dark skinned people and waving flags.

Yeah I'm just talking about my immediate area, which is the Princeton, NJ area.  This is the bluest place I've ever seen (in the US).  Sure, I can go to the shore or to south Jersey to see some Trumpers, but in my daily commute it's just a sea of blue, luckily.

note to self: feel free to infiltrate the United States capitol and make threats of armed violence as the police hold the door for you.

I feel like all these people need to be strapped down in a movie theater and forced to watch Schindler’s List and the Pianist for 2 weeks while being force fed matzo ball soup.

Don't encourage them.

i feel like they should round up a few hundred of these people.. find a poisoned well.. and throw them into then cover over the well with concrete to make it safe.

Senate is back in session.  Mitch just called it an insurrection in his opening statement.

Seems like Republican challengers will likely still challenge some states in some way, but probably not the lengthy debate we were initially expecting.

It sucks that it went this far but it is refreshing to finally hear some sanity coming from GOP reps. Today is the first day I can remember that I didn't want to punch Mitch McConnell in the face.

Of course, you're not wrong. But he has a certain audience, and they really needed to be told to back the fuck up, so I'm slightly pleasantly surprised that he did the bare minimum there.

WaPo has updated that the woman who was shot has died

she was a veteran.... saw more than one tweet from the rioters who were proclaiming they were proud former military/vets who were now going full on insurrectionists/MAGA idiots/militiamen. 

that is the sort of shit that's worrying, that ties much of the larger problems in America together. our obsession with this national violence mindset, trillions of dollars to 'national defense' and so forth. 9/11 and all that lead up to it and was done in its name after....it's all just a fucking twisted knot of disgusting power pushed onto the citizens, constantly.

it's nuts. a seemingly well disciplined educated person sworn to duty in the military totally taken over by the horse shit of conspiracy, rhetoric from the president and the media.. to the point of storming the building that represents and carries out the business of government as instructed by the constitution which she was sworn to defend.

This, we've lived under a nightmare-ish military-industrial complex for half a century and are approaching 20 years into an endless war.

Yes and no. I wouldn't be shocked if she was like this before she joined. My guess is she's been this way since at least Obama was elected. She's a self-described libertarian and yet was a 14 year veteran of what is arguably the most unnecessary, bureaucratic, money pit entity of the U.S. federal government. There's a lot of hyper-projection and ultra-contradictory people like this who are veterans and/or pro-military. They are just authoritarian right-wingers straight up. The Tea Party and MAGA movements recruited more sure but they've always been around. John Birch Society, militia movement, etc.

The OK City bomber was an army vet. The first deadly Boogaloo terrorist attack was conducted by an active duty USAF security forces member. There have been numerous neo-Nazi militants discovered in active-duty military service. Germany uncovered a right-wing cell in their spec ops community a couple years ago.
