The Lemming Defense

[MAGA Asshole] said he came to Washington on Jan. 6 with no intention of rioting. But he got caught up in the mob of angry supporters of then-President Donald Trump as they surged into the U.S. Capitol, breaking through police barriers and smashing through doors.

It wasn’t his fault, he said, that he ended up inside the building with a yellow “Don’t Tread on Me” flag around his neck as lawmakers ran for their lives.

I guess their mothers never asked them: "If Jimmy jumped off a cliff, would you?"

Meanwhile, The Trumpist politicians are saying that we shouldn't be examining what happened on 1/6/21, because it's in the past, but we should examine the way the election was held. So some things are in the past but others aren't?

I don't see how anyone who thinks of themself as a patriot can have a single thought that the Insurrection was understandable, much less permissible.

'Cuz no one want's to admit they've been suckered, that they're rubes, pigeons, marks, had one pulled over on 'em, sold a bag full of magic beans. Or that they've been brainwashed: bare-footed barely literate rubes sprawled drooling Pavlovianly across a "couch" the back seat out of a nineteen and sixty-nine Chevy Suburban drunk as a skunk on the Ambien, Prozac, Viagra and bimbo bottle-blonde crotch-shots on Fox Kool-Aid, blindly following a charismatic "leader" to suicide. Dragging the rest of us with 'em.
