The Capitol Siege was extremely dumb.
No one should have ever considered going to DC on the grounds of “trusting Trump” alone. He spent five years illustrating that he destroys everyone he touches, doesn’t care about anyone but himself, doesn’t protect his own supporters and that he is a blustering incompetent moron.
The Electoral College had already voted. The Supreme Court had thrown out the Texas case. There was zero chance that the 2020 election would be overturned on January 6th. Nothing was ever going to happen that day except for more performance art and political theater. There was never a plan except in the minds of those who believed Q’s prophecies which was always nothing more than a huge grift.
This is the mindset that “wignats” woke up with on January 6th. We understood it was nothing but a political stunt. No one was paying attention to the Stop the Steal rally that morning because it was a waste of time. The idea of “storming the Capitol” doesn’t even make sense because it is protected by Paul Blart Mall Cop types. The real power centers are the Pentagon, FBI headquarters, NSA headquarters, etc. There wasn’t even a plan to overthrow the government because no one was armed. The vast majority of the people who went into the Capitol simply followed the herd like lemmings. They went in and took selfies and expected thunder and lightning and to be delivered from a Biden presidency.
The people who are caught up in the Capitol Siege dragnet either didn’t know better because they were plan trusters or unlearned everything we learned after Charlottesville. That’s the dumbest and most inexcusable thing about it. The influencers who said go to DC for Trump reversed themselves on street activism and “goon marches.” They told their supporters to “get in the streets and to do it for Donald Trump’s vanity who spent four years doing jack shit for them.
Note: There is nothing wrong with street activism. Patriot Front is doing a great job at it. A year ago, they showed how to hold a rally the right way in DC. The problem is volatile public events which are announced in advance and which can be easily disrupted by people with their own agenda.
