    Easy there. I live in Patriots territory. Only Brady is laughable because he is a traitor.

    Oh, I don't know about that. To me, someone considering themselves as patriotic are just expressing their love for something bigger than themselves, in this case their country, in a succinct manner. People who consider themselves patriots generally do it alone and do not expect others to validate it for them.
    I save my laughter for those who feel entitled to perhaps choose their own pronouns and demand everyone else respect them, or use their adjectives improperly such as someone politically 'progressive' calling themselves 'liberal'. That's a real knee slapper.

    Those who stormed the capital on Jan 6th (or provoked them to do so) are NOT patriots IMO but traitors who should be treated as such. The damage done and talk of hanging Pence, etc. One person was shot and killed on the spot. Surprisingly, there were not more. What is laughable is these low lifes calling themselves patriots.

    People can call themselves whatever they like and they could call other people whatever they like. It’s just a dumb label.

    The people who stormed the capital, who actually broke down doors and acted like fools are what
    I call “fools. “

    Liz Cheney's opening remarks at the Jan 6th Hearing are spot on!

    They might more accurately be called "tools." They acted in service to a fool.

    I wasn't a fan of her father, but I really admire her integrity and willingness to speak truth to power, despite the impact on her own standing in her party.

    I agree. She is courageous in comparison to the latter-day quislings in her party.

    "Fools" works for me, but "criminals" is the first word that comes to my mind.

    The Proud Boys (sic) have been on my radar since they violently and repeatedly disrupted BLM demonstrations in Portland. They were thugs and criminals long before they were involved in the insurrection.
