Bitter, Dead-Ender, Pro-Insurrection Congressmen

A dozen Republicans voted against a resolution honoring US Capitol police for their efforts to protect members of Congress during the insurrection on 6 January.

Their big beef was with describing what happened on January 6th as an "insurrection". No doubt that they preferred to use the phrase "failed garden party", or, as their Orange God's owner called it, "a stroll".

These are the pro-insurrection congressvermin:

Biggs Republican Arizona
Cloud Republican Texas
Clyde Republican Georgia
Gaetz Republican Florida
Gohmert Republican Texas
Good Republican Virginia
Gooden Republican Texas
Greene Republican Georgia
Harris Republican Maryland
Massie Republican Kentucky
Rose Republican Tennessee
Steube Republican Florida

Profiles in Sedition is a book that is begging to be written about the events leading up to January 6th, the failed insurrection itself, and the denialism by those who stoked it. Like the above dozen douchebags.

Speaking of seditious douchebags:

Four men described as leaders of the far-right Proud Boys have been charged in the U.S. Capitol riots, as an indictment ordered unsealed on Friday presents fresh evidence of how federal officials believe group members planned and carried out a coordinated attack to stop Congress from certifying President Joe Biden’s electoral victory.

One of the Arrested Asshats's lawyer said that his client "oves his country".. yep, loves it enough to try to use mob violence to overturn the results of an election.

And then there's this self-styled patriot:

A former Army Special Forces soldier charged with a half-dozen crimes stemming from the Capitol riot threw a flagpole at a police officer like a spear and assaulted three other officers, according to the FBI and court documents.

Jeffrey McKellop, 55, who was arrested Wednesday, is among more than 30 veterans charged in the Jan. 6 incident but appears to be the first so far who served in Special Operations, according to service records analyzed by The Washington Post.

Seditious bastards, all of them.

What next from these clowns? Benedict Arnold was protesting the food at West Point or the 911 terrorists were just student pilots having a bad day.

Maybe this will finally compel the law to have a serious look at some of the militias that have sprung up like toadstools. They were fast becoming accepted and I for one am worried about them. Good to see the law is thinning their ranks finally. Now for the law to thin them from their own ranks.
A little sunshine from that storm

Those "gentlemen" will be installment 3 to the Sedition Edition
and when history writes it maybe even party of the declared actors.

As to the ex-mil guys, I think they should be charged under UCMJ
as I think there is room in Leavenworth for those good people.
I don't give two shits and a half a damn what they felt they
were doing the fact was they were not protecting the Country
or Democracy.

The bad news is until the rule of law deals with a few and then
slaps the creeps back into their holes there will likely be more.

The othrr truth is people will hire them and show their own
colors but, most of them will be shunned quietly as they should.
They are not good for business.
