The Fascists March on D.C.

And one of their leaders gets arrested, right out of the gate, on a charge of gross stupidity.

City officials in Washington on Monday warned supporters of President Donald Trump not to bring guns to protests this week against congressional certification of his election defeat and enlisted hundreds of National Guard troops to help keep order.
...
On Monday, Metropolitan police arrested Proud Boys leader Henry “Enrique” Tarrio, and charged him with destruction of property related to an earlier protest. Tarrio was “in possession of two high capacity firearm magazines” at the time of arrest, a police statement said, and charged with that possession offense as well.

That is Trump-grade arrogance. Tarrio earlier admitted publicly to burning a BLM banner that was taken from a church and dared the cops to arrest him. And so they did, but apparently, he didn't really believe that they would, or why else would he allegedly have large-capacity magazines, which everyone with a pulse knows that are illegal to possess in D.C.?

Washington is pretty much locking down in advance of the upcoming neo-nazi riot. Word I've gotten is that the agencies are ordering their workers to "telework" today and tomorrow, with the possibility of extending the order an additional day.

Meanwhile, that flaming liberal, George F. Will, calls the senators voting for Trump's coup the most dangerous domestic enemies that the nation is facing.

Also, a judge is considering referring one of the Trumpist lawyers for discipline for filing bullshit pleadings and ignoring a court order. So add that to the list of Trumpist losses in court.

The Post link is paywalled...

...but one does not need to be able to read the article to know that Will is not being honest. If he were, it would be the first time. His talent is for blowing a particular kind of smoke that, to the uninitiated, makes the determination of his meaning and his motivations too tedious to persist.

FUnny how folks NOT on your side are "Fascist", but when you approve of them, they are "Peaceful (mostly) Protesters".....

The Fascists were the ones damaging businesses and looting and tearing down statues this summer.

But there is that whole Doube Standard thing again.....

Comrade Misfit said...

So you’re not denying your side is Fascist, then.

Good to know.

The goddamn proud bois have already signaled their intent in DC tomorrow by announcing that they will be wearing all black to impersonate "antifa" (an idea, not an organization) so as to enable Fergus to invoke the insurrection act when they start fucking things up.
Well, at least their leader won't be tempted to masturbate in jail.

The Doobie Standard?

The guy who admitted to burning a BLM sign stolen from a black church? I thought B was against property damage.

B said...

Comrade? Which set of folks damaged businesses across the country and burned and looted and pulled statues down?
Hint: It wasn't my side.

dinthebeast said...

B: First, they didn't damage businesses across the country, and second, it is now.
