Virginia "bible study" secret militia, complete with homemade bombs, reveals the extent of the terrorist threat
They are not going to stop. Also I was asked before the pandemic what was the biggest gateway to this type of thinking that could radicalize loved ones who were otherwise normal. My answer would be Christian nationalism. The perverted and non scripture based teachings of scripture which has infected the mostly white but not exclusively white Christian population in the US.
They think any action or act of violence is is justified because they are fighting and enemy (us) is so evil and so conniving and degenerate that we must be stopped at any cost. They are also primed because of their faith in one thing that is not provable to ascribe that faith in something else, such as an anonymous poster, like Q.
What worries me the most is that the left is asking for police to stop killing black people, healthcare for everyone, to end discrimination against LGTBQ persons. None of that takes away from the white majority, but to them it seems a huge threat.
That is the agenda they see as from an imagined devil. The most evil thing they can think of. I usually don't internalize the behavior of white right wingers but at this point I am embarrassed at the video of white idiots at school board meetings allowing pictures of themselves screaming like rabid dogs shooting spittle from their mouths. Enough is enough.
Good white people need to step up in their personal lives and in public to stop and shame this spread of rabbit authoritarian. Also we need to hold accountable and replace our elderly elected with people who actually understand the urgency of the moment.
We on the left and for many of you I put that in quotations, but we must not be idolaters like the Christian right has treated trump. We must demand accountability and see any figure as dispensable when our goals are not being met. No liberal goals have ever benefited me or personally in my adult life but allowing fascisism to take power when the supposed left has power is really inexcusable.
Funny how the MAGA cult decried the tactics and violence of ISIS, yet they always take an opportunity to emulate them. It also doesn't help that some veterans and active duty military are taking part in this. Wouldn't surprise me in the least if the veterans or active duty members of these MAGA terrorist organizations also committed war crimes in Iraq & Afghanistan, and now want to take it out on any American who doesn't bow down to Trump since they can no longer go to the middle east and kill Muslims over there.
The Repugnants and their terrorist cell connections are slowly disintergrating.. We will eventually learn just how much the FBI has on these “terrorist” cells over the months of court cases,and you can probably bet that evidence will implicate a couple of Repugnant legislators. This latest plot and uncovering by the FBI gives the Democrats invaluable propaganda to attack the absurd Repugnant’s suggestion that “antifa” was behind the Jan.6 terrorist attack, and who can look at “Bible study” groups with any trust in the future. All of this said, Michelangelo’s advice to the Democrats regarding pushing back hard against GOP’s “diversion tactics is right on target, we should be on the alert to actively encourage our Democratic leaders to fight back using strong factual rhetoric and actions to reinforce the fact that Jan.6 attack and the reckless statements by idiot Repugnants was a serious attack on this democracy and continues to be so. We also need to apply pressure on Fox and other media outlets who promote the Repugnants “diversion” tactics in an attempt to scrub away from our history the terrorist attack on our Congress.
We need to engage our side with money to buy media. Repugnant Cans own everything and get to control the conversation. And , we have go all "Stacy Abrams" on them and register everyone.
Thanks Michaelangelo for all your great reporting; don't know how you keep up with all the twists and turns, and just all the information and facts, but very thankful you do somehow. I want to mention a few things. First, Democrats need to be political in light of the stakes now. We have to be concerned about inflation, which will be used against us(Senator Rick Scott, Mitch McConnel) Biden needs to call out speculators using the pandemic to raise prices, dump oil out of the national reserve, end or greatly reduce the Canadian tariff on lumber, ease some China tariffs, etc. to get a handle on it. We will be flooding the economy with money with both infrastructures and right now the bet is massive inflation, but probably could be controlled by Fed intervention, actually controlling asset prices, not really done before, but has been implemented in the pandemic to some extent; it's a step up to actually control prices with behind the scenes intervention. Also, to call republicans authoritarian, or fascists needs to be changed to supporting a dictator or wannabe dictator who incited a terrorist insurrection. I think people still don't like dictators. And what crimes are they hiding to support this dictator, a great point that Michael from the Bronx made. Last but not least, is that we use our consumer vote to fillibuster all of the foreign car makers, Nissan, Toyota,VW, Volvo(a chinese company) Mercedes,Bmw, Subaru(I love Subaru) Hyundai, they all have union busting plants in the South. The Republicans think they can steal our country and constantly rub shit in our faces; it's time to stop buying these cars for five years.
