to overthrow the government on January sixth


Sounds like a public admission of participation in a seditious conspiracy, don't you think?

Lock them up.



Holy shit! there was absolutely nothing illegal about staging a rally. Can you understand that?
Where did Bannon talk about having protestors break into the capitol? The breaking in of the capitol building actually hurt Trumps bid to legally protest and challenge Biden's election. It was again, just like the Covid outbreak, one of the best things to come along for the Democrats in a long time.

In a Republic, actually
And they are in spades. There's a lots of angry tRumplings in this thread desperate to make it about insulting me instead of addressing the op.
And Trump supporters in general are angry and doing the same thing.

It’s humiliating and devastating to have your president voted out of office, rejected as a failure, his agenda rejected by the voters.

This is particularly true for Republicans who perceive the WH as their ‘birthright’ and where the aberration of the Imperial Presidency conforms nicely with the right’s propensity for authoritarianism – indeed, an autocratic Republican president such as Trump can rule absent consensus or compromise.

That abject failure got12 million more votes than he did in 2016. Trump was defrauded.

Sorry, but reality says differently.



Try reading the WORDS.
how is exposing something as a journalist equal to over throwing a government?

"Yeah, because his legitimacy," Bannon said of Biden. "42% of the American people think that Biden did not win the presidency legitimately."

"It killed itself," he continued. "Just look at what this illegitimate regime is doing. It killed itself. OK? But we told you from the very beginning, just expose it, just expose it, never back down, never give up and this thing will implode."



Bannon says just expose the Biden regime and it will kill itself, wether you believe in that outlook is immaterial. He didn't say to storm a capitol building. You guys just like to take words that have some analogy to them, and then attribute the meaning to whatever you want to attribute it to.

Just as in the way the media grabbed onto Trumps words "fight"...... when every other politician in the world uses those same words fight in regards to politics and political enemies, all the time.

If you want to try checking into reality sometime, then try checking into the FBI's actual statements on the matter, or try looking into why there is no one From Trump on down, being prosecuted for this 'conspiracy' to overthrow the government.

You had rioters pretty much acting on their own, based on the FBI investigation.

While the Trump cult bar for acceptable behavior by a President may be "Show me the conviction for the crime", the nation in general holds a higher standard.

How about "show me the evidence" ?
Being critical of Trump for not accepting the election outcome is one thing. But accusing him of Insurrection needs to have actual evidence other than opinon and biased news reporting who has to run with words twisted around.
Common sense would tell anyone who looks at it all with honesty that a Capitol Break in only destroyed Trumps slim chances of trying to overturn the election by influencing the electors.

Of Trump trying to overturn the election?

Besides his own letters, spoken words on video and audio recording, and his lawyers' memos?

Go waste someone else's time.

The thread is about overthrowing the government , not trying to over turn election results. Your wasting your own time all by yourself just fine. You dont need any help.
