Semi seriously, if the Russians are the ones that have spread all of this disinformation and fueled fires on social media, etc then we can blame them

Maybe they were playing the long game and the election was just the first quarter

since 2016, took it to overdrive this election season, then went nuclear following his landslide loss in November, along with a strong, deep, and spineless back-up choir shouting it every day alongside.

If you hear the lie over and over, and over, it will stick. It will never make it true, but people's minds have deficiencies that are susceptible to this tactic. This was becoming understood in the early 20th century by PR pioneers and marketers, embraced en whole by Goebbels and the Nazi party, and further promulgated by fascist and authoritarian regimes from a political standpoint ever since.

If you have the courage, patience, and wherewithal to shelve the noise or what you think you know, inspect realities from a standpoint of reason, explore varying takes, then you can break free from this malady. Time also helps - giving yourself a moment to breathe, calm your mind, and be real with yourself.

This is like saying Clemson beat tOSU in the Sugar Bowl because the game was stolen from the Tigers. Even though the score was 49-28, Clemson won because...blah blah blah.
We all watched the bucknuts win fair and square. Biden and Harris won fair and square.

Is “Be glad it wasn’t the rest of us” a threat?
Kinda sounds like a threat.
It wasn’t stolen. Relax, old man. It’ll only be 8 years of your long life.

Should the government respond to a third of Americans who have consistently refused to give any credence to empirical evidence and rational thinking ??

In other words, should the government waste its time and energy responding to some people's delusions - or should they base their efforts on provable reality ??

rural men tired of being thrown to the side, demoralized, looked over, told they are no good, called rednecks and basically disenfranchised for close to 15 years.

I keep saying that Middle America keeps getting pushed around and the very fringes of Middle America put action behind their words. Like it or not, that is what happened.

They like the community that supports them and agrees with maybe even 25% of how they feel. They join the group and here they go to Washington.

they should have thought about that before dropping out of HS and snorting oxy. And everyone knows that inherited wealth is the true measure of a man. If you ain't got none, you will be a wage slave the rest of your life. Get over it, or make something out of yourself and stop the whining.

I was halfway trolling. But I was not given a dang thing in life. I paid my way through everything, started shoveling driveways at 10, mowing lawns at and delivery papers at 12, worked the windy's drive through until 10:00 at night in HS, then came home and did homework. I paid my own way through architecture school, took me until I was 33 to pay that off. I had two jobs while I was at clemson.

So yeah, whiners can suck it.

Let's have a little more respect for the intelligence of these people.

No one who is poor is going to spend their hard-earned money chasing after Trump's delusions. They mostly just want to pay the rent and have some food security. And then party on their day off.

The people who went to DC yesterday had more resources and much better educations.

Don't conflate rural America with the very specific types of people who fell prey to a distinctive cult of personality movement.

I doubt there were that many of these folks at the riot yesterday. Most are middle class necks that drive around in expensive trucks that cost more than the house they grew up in. Nothing wrong with that, but they haven’t yet had time to properly adjust to their first generation prosperity. They live in the burbs but their minds are still still stuck on the mill hill or trailer park.

More evidence of why this country won’t heal. The elitist nonsense on this board is staggering sometimes. Yes, there were probably people from all walks of life there yesterday, some with a lot less than others. There were also people there who could probably buy you 100x over. I know some rednecks and farmers that are extremely wealthy.

Disparaging people for their socioeconomic status just because you don’t like their politics is just wrong and furthers the divisiveness.

You're assuming that because they're there, they are ignorant. People were there for all kinds of reasons yesterday. One guy I just saw on TV wasn't even a Trump supporter. I think you also assumed that because they came from a mill background or a trailer park, they couldn't be smart now...even with money.

Isn't that just as bad as the people who automatically assume that people from the ghetto are all dumb too? There were tons of people that marched this summer and years before, that have turned out to be completely wrong about what they were protesting about. Remember the guy in MN that shot himself and everyone was ready to riot because they thought a cop shot him?

I'm just saying if people are ever gonna even attempt to come together in this country, the labels have to stop. The media and politicians last night and today have been some of the worst.

so your point is that BLM rioted in the summer and therefore the POTUS and his cronnies should be able to riot, invade teh US capitol and overturn an election?

the BLM protests have no parallels with this past wednesday.

because the guy they worship lied to them. Since they are sheep and can’t think for themselves and worship the guy, they believed every word he said even though it was total BS. Add to that not enough armed security, and you get the result we saw.

and thousands of nonsense conspiracy theories can be posted on the internet, but nothing happens unless people are dumb enough to believe it. There’s a reason these people were mad enough to drive from hundreds of miles away to overturn an election, and that’s because they were dumb enough to believe the lies and conspiracy theories they were fed by the guy they worship.

“Today, the United States Capitol — the world’s greatest symbol of self-government — was ransacked while the leader of the free world cowered behind his keyboard — tweeting against his vice president for fulfilling the duties of his oath to the Constitution,” he said in a statement.



“Lies have consequences,” he continued. “This violence was the inevitable and ugly outcome of the president’s addiction to constantly stoking division.”
