All the while being “disappointed” that we don’t share their delusions.

This is an actual quote from my Mom yesterday, to my reply of “radical Trump supporters” when she asked “who do YOU think these people (storming the capital) are?”

“I’m surprised at you. I think it’s big money people and industries.... Soros, gates, the radical left, the Wall Street. .... certainly not the right.”

LITERALLY anyone but her beloved party. What drives me INSANE is that in all other ways, she’s a wonderful, caring person and the best Mom I could have possibly hoped for... but the indoctrination she’s put herself through is FRIGHTENING.

Yes... they actually do think that way. They contort reality and any and all information to fit their views. Im almost positive they’d go so far as to say the woman shot was an undercover Antifa member or any of the other sides they dislike. It’s really deep in their minds. You can’t reason with them because they’re positive you’re the one who’s brainwashed. It’s quite sad.

I saw multiple references to the "storm" yesterday. Some Qultists were even excited that the national guard were called in, though they didn't specify why. I'm assuming, in their heads, they were meant to show up and support the Trump terrorists?

But then Q never made sense and never attracted the brightest minds to begin with.

Yes, ‘the Storm’ is central in Qanon mythology, it’s supposed to be the moment when Trump calls on the military to arrest all the elite satanist pedophiles - who just happen to be everyone who ever opposed Trump.

It's sad that a person died. It's sad she was brainwashed and misled to believe this was the right thing to do. It's sad she thought attacking a democratic process was the right course of action. It's sad that her two kids will grow up without a mother. It's sad she won't have the chance to recognize the error of her ways and become a better person, as so many others have.

And it's sad that the leader she cared about so strongly to give her life for doesn't, hasn't and won't ever give a shit about her in the slightest.

These are congressmen and congresswomen. The Vice President. You can't break the barriers to the Capitol, storm the building calling for heads, break windows and try to climb through, then say "she wasn't a threat." Everyone in there was 'a threat' to congress and the VP.

Astounding is right. Why the hell would Antifa plants WANT themselves to be easily identified? There's absolutely no logical reason for that. Then again, none of the Trump chuds even have fully functioning brains, so it's not that surprising.

They're also posting pictures of a dude with a Dishonored tattoo saying it's a hammer and sickle, and posting pictures of the goddamn QAnon Shaman saying he's Antifa. You can't get any dumber than that. You just can't.

on r/conservative and facebook people are saying “the hat being turned around” was a thing antifa did to self identify each other and that this guy was undercover antifa , they’re really holding on to this theory.

like noo , he just turned his hat around because he was in the process of attacking a police officer

My dad posted some shit about the guy in the Viking helmet having “pedo tattoos” on his body. When someone pointed out that he is actually a pretty known outspoken Qanon guy my dad just called him a lier and moved on. I just don’t know what to do any more. I feel like my dad has gone totally insane. He is a British immigrant to the US and before he moved there he was an out spoken union guy. It’s like his mind has been warped. He has gone from my loving father to a bitter, angry, crazy person who is impossible to talk to and can’t even see the reality in front of his nose. I’m so upset.

Honestly, I totally understand you 100%. I'm Australian, so it is slightly different, but my ex-stepdad is Canadian, real fucking arsehole, but he is a massive Trump supporter and conspiracy theorist like believes that a lot of the school shootings were faked and they're all actors, listens to Alex Jones, straight up Q supporter.

I just hope that you can get out as safe as you can. I'm not too sure what else to say, but if you need to reach out to someone, my DM's are always open <3

I was watching the protests yesterday on Right Side Broadcasting Network (not because I agree with them, they just had a camera right inside the riot group by the door and I enjoyed seeing them get tear gassed), and they were spinning it like that during the riots already (I first heard them mention it right before they started tear gassing them).

While filming people in Trump outfits repeatedly attacking guards/police/whatever in an attempt to break through they were saying shit like "Well, we saw and spoke to some of those who broke in, and none of them looked like Trump supporters. Not that we know exactly what Trump supporters look like, but we've been to enough rallies for Trump and these did not look like the people we see there. These people were wearing all black and had no Trump flags or MAGA hats on." They also specifically mentioned those people in black being obvious ANTIFA plants several times.

Again, while filming MAGA fucks attempting to break through defenses.

They were also trying to spin it like it was a peaceful protest until the police attacked, again, after filming for quite a while and showing the violence against the police while they were trying to gather and mobilise.

And last, but not least, they were trying to spin it saying that they saw no police brutality during the summer protests and they let people rampage freely. Which is obviously first of all false, many people got injured by police during those protests, and second of all they weren't trying to break into the Capitol.

It was honestly super interesting to see them try to spin this shit on the fly. I was impressed by how convinced they sounded of all of this while also clearly and verifiably lying.

After she got shot some trumpet yelled "you didn't have to shoot her!" . Mind you that was after they broke down a barricaded door and she was the first going through the opening they created. A barricaded door in the Capitol. These are the same people who say George Floyd brought it all onto himself.

Kind of off topic. But I watched the local news last night. They had interviewed a woman in the area that went to the protest but she and her husband decided to "go back to the hotel" when the riots began. She stated she has 3 children. Being a mom myself I asked myself how did they not think that it was going to turn into some chaotic terroristic mess? And then I wondered why would she and her husband feel so strongly as to fly to DC and leave their children to participate on this...possibly sacrificing their lives? I just don't understand. Trump ain't thinking about nobody but himself and these people really don't seem to understand that.

I need a strong blunt this early in the morning. The lady who was shot over this nonsense had two kids and was a 14 year vet. And she drank the Kool aid and decided to "defend" Trump and his lackeys. And Trump would not give two shits that she died for him.

And apparently she was wearing the Orange Man's campaign flag as a damn cape.
