    Coup

    It sure looks like a coup attempt to me.

    Definition of coup d'état
    : a sudden decisive exercise of force in politics
    especially : the violent overthrow or alteration of an existing government by a small group

    Yep, sounds like what the Trumpers are attempting.

    Hopefully these terrorists will be caught and treated as such. Including the president.

    And after this is over we hopefully are smart enough now to not put statues of any of them up as heroes.

    If they were black they would be dead. But they are white so we are trying to talk them down.

    it's not really racism, it's ideology, if they weren't rightwingers they would be dead
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    If they were black there would’ve been 5000 armed police/national guard in riot outfits surrounding the captor building for the past two days in preparation.

    Wrong, shameful, and put them in jail.

    ‘ Course if this was happening in St. Louis there would be no consequence for them.

    If it were happening in St. Louis it wouldn’t be a treasonous attack against the UNited States government led by the president.

    There are protesters on the Senate floor, and a woman on a stretcher was recently moved out of the building. With blood and chest compressions.
    This was predictable, with all Trump's bellicose rhetoric. He's probably in his bunker, showing his usual concern for the republic.

    What's really scary? I'm innocently on lunch when I get a text from another neighborhood activist - lamenting that we don't have a militia to protect the 85006.

    EXCUSE ME??? When did we become Honduras other than health care access issues and food insecurity? I've known since I was 14 that a huge fall was coming - but do we need to go quite this third world? The whole world is watching, I'd better send an email to Vienna to let my family know it's isolated and I'm not under direct threat other than economically as we all are 24/7/365 as Americans. But this militia thing???

    Some of you think I'm far out there. Fair enough. This militia thing to me is just as far out there. Can anyone see this ending well? Rob
