Let's think about this for a moment. "Yahoo News" (whoever that is) finds it disturbing that as more and more of the perpetrators of the January 6th free-for-all are identified publicly, more and more of them are identified as military veterans, police, and government employees.

THEIR take on it is that, since it is obvious that everyone who participated is an America-hating closeted Klan member, it is disturbing that there are so many America-hating closeted Klan members in our military and government sectors.

MY take is that it is interesting and encouraging that these people, who obviously truly CARE about the country and the travesty of November 3 were willing to raise a little hell on Inauguration Day, to demonstrate the level of their anger.

What is YOUR take?
These people were insurrectionists and traitors to the Republic and the Constitution. We had an election. Trump lost. These criminals sought to halt the constitutional process and peaceful transfer of power. That is sedition. End of story.

It's disturbing that "authorities" are pouring over images and videos of a four month old case of criminal trespass while cities are burning and illegal aliens are massing at the border. Are they really hunting political dissidents? Did "authorities" ever pour over images and videos of the Vegas shooter who killed 58 people a couple of years ago? The victims were only young republicans? Indications are that Stephen Paddock didn't work alone but "authorities" seemed more interested in closing the case just as they closed the case on James Hodgkinson who may have met with democrat officials before he opened fire on a republican baseball team.

You think the election was "stolen", which shows a clear and unmistakable lack of critical thinking skills.

Looking at the profiles of those who took part in the attempted overthrow of a legally elected government, they all seem to have one thing in common: No higher education. Almost none of the perps are college graduates, all are blue collar, which makes them far easier to radicalize.

I've done some deeper examination of those arrested from the list compiled by NPR, and these folks are all the type of people who would believe in someone like Trump over an actual scientist. And January 6th, 2021 is exactly why I've stated for years that the Dumbing Down of America is inherently dangerous to our democracy.

"Profiles of those who took part in the attempted overthrow of a legally elected government"? Surely you jest. True to form democrats are behaving like communist dictators who spend time and resources rounding up the usual suspects from a previous administration. What if left wingers and street thugs led the mob? Would the "authorities " tell Americans or would they continue to hunt down political dissidents while the Country falls apart.

It's a well known fact that white supremacists and other anti government types have been deliberately infiltrating the military and police for decades. They are doing it for the training and experience, so that they can use it at times like 1/6. It's no accident there were so many there.

What about the many thousands that remained outside the barricades on that faithful day? ... who were lawfully protesting the election results? ...
What about them? Nobody is arresting them or prosecuting them.

You have to love the craziness and hypocrisy of the left. They can shoot congressmen, bomb congress, riot daily, declare portions of the US as independent and see nothing wrong. Let the right riot and they become instantly incensed.
the leftist congressmen call for violence, packing the courts, changing voting laws and creating racial tension all in the hopes of staying in power. Yet if someone even hints at voter id they are shouted down as being racist.
having a birth certificat, driver’s license even credit card are not racist but voter ID is?
in short the left only considers things that the right does as out of bounds, out of the norm. While they consider anything they do as not only proper but necessary
The "left" is not doing these things. People are doing it and who they vote for is irrelevent.
So you want to distance yourself and the “left” from all those things but you and the rest are more then willing to broad brush the right. If the shoe fits then I guess wear it and wear it proudly unless you want to convince the rest of your ilk to stop broad brushing the right.
Distancing? Hardly. You Trump fanatics always make it a left-right situation and it is not as I pointed out. Who they vote for is irrelevant.
And yet here you are broad brushing. Lol to say you really have no clue is giving you way too much credit

Yeah, jest let 'em free to do it all over again. These were more than dissidents,
because of death and destruction resulting from their insurrection of our Capitol.
They were criminals and thugs and some time in the clink will straighten their sorry asses out. They broke the law. Whoever leads the mob should get the same treatment, and whoever planned and encouraged the mob should be held accountable.
