Jan. 6 Rally Funded by Top Trump Donor, Helped by Alex Jones, Organizers Say
Publix Super Markets heiress donated about $300,000 to the Ellipse event; far-right show host pledged seed money, organizers say

‘We’re on the Brink of a Revolution,’ Chris Cox Tells Insurrection Eve Rally, Offers to ‘Take the First Bullet’
There was plenty of war talk at a pro-Trump rally on Jan. 5, the day before the violent insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, but nobody’s bluster beat that of Bikers for Trump founder Chris Cox, who said the country is “on the brink of a revolution” and offered to “take the first bullet.”

Cox said Bikers for Trump exists “for the sole purpose of seeing Donald Trump elected in 2020.”

Here’s part of what Cox told the crowd:
Folks, we’re on the brink of socialism, which is the Venus flytrap for any democracy, for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. And if any of those things ring true to you, then you better step up right now because we’re on the brink of a revolution.

And I, for one, will take the first bullet. If there’s anybody out there from antifa or Black Lives Matters, spend your first fuckin’ bullet in my chest, OK?

Because patriots will step up and we will fill those gaps and we will hold that line. And you got my word. We’re pushing 400,000 members in the Bikers for Trump. We’re one of the fastest growing organizations in the country. And we don’t slow down, we double down, and we’ve been doubling down in Georgia. We’ve been doubling down in Philadelphia, and we’re just getting started here, folks.

Right now, there is a major assault on decency. They want your Bible. They want your babies. And they want your bullets. OK? We have grandfathers and great-grandfathers and uncles that died, that gave limbs, that are living on respirators, that died for us and spilled blood. Now it’s up to us here in the continental USA, in domestic America, to stand up for the sacrifices that they made.

And I, for one, will stand up, and again, antifa, if you’re out here and you’re hidin’, Black Lives Matters, if you’re hidin’, start with me, Chris Cox, Bikers for Trump. Thanks, everybody. Hats off! Donald Trump 2020!

this brings up a coffee thought 

is it always easy to distinguish a troll from a legit poster? not always but most of the time it is

i very rarely see people seriously interested in understanding or engaging someone with political differences these days

at this point i see partisan material that may demonize/dehumanize people that we don't agree with on political issues

who doesn't want to get that sick one liner burn in and frame someone who thinks differently as a buffoon?

we have all done it and some of us fall back into it from time to time (we're human - it happens)

what if we couldn't use violence or coercion to enforce our political goals on other peaceful people?

what if we had to talk to each other and not past each other? what if you or i were in charge of building a peaceful solution?

how would we go about reconciling differences? finding common ground? reaching an intelligent sustainable solution?

i doubt people will watch this video, maybe it is too long or they just are not as serious as they thought about understanding and getting along with others

not sure but i let it play in the background and found it interesting

peace

True. I'd add Kurtster to that list, even though I just posted a massive response to one of his BS screeds.

I think we're all confident that KK and Ohmsen are paid shills. Kurt doesn't seem to be. But I'm coming to the conclusion that Kurt doesn't give a crap about American democracy as long as Trump is in power.

There goes the narrative!

Watch for CNN to cover this one... 



"Antifa-Insurgence leader John Earl Sullivan is in custody after being arrested in Utah on Thursday.

As reported previously Antifa protester John Sullivan was caught on video posing as a Trump supporter during the rioting at the US Capitol last week."



John Sullivan agitated a crowd to attack the doors in the Speaker's Lobby which lead to Ashli Babbitt's death

He was invited on CNN later that night

https://www.justice.gov/opa/pa...
 

So what? Was John Sullivan in charge of the mob that stormed the Capitol? Was he a leader or organizer of others? Was Sullivan part of a group of Antifa activists that tried to take over the Capitol and pass the blame onto Trump supporters?

Looks like no



While the vast majority of the roughly 100 people hit with federal charges appear to be supporters of President Donald Trump and some backed known right-wing organizations, Sullivan is the first person to be charged who appears to have been active in liberal causes.

No one is arguing he wasn't there.

As usual though, your conclusions (and those of frothy pundits) are another matter. Still trying really hard to create a false narrative. It's Them. Not Us.

What else? Trump didn't incite?

Definitely.  Though none of this excuses the political violence that accompanied some of the BLM demonstrations.  Nor does it restore the image of the BLM movement with folks alienated by the violence.

It is good to have what...  recent bi-partisan events that amply illustrate how violence can lead to loss of control over the narrative and ultimately less political support for the agenda.

President Donald Trump in July 2020 had signed an executive order authorising up to 10 years of imprisonment for 'injury of federal property’





Condemning the violent rioters who stormed the Capitol on Wednesday, acting attorney general Jeffrey Rosen in a statement assured that those responsible for the attack would "face the full consequences of their actions under the law."


The protesters are liable to be punished with up to 10 years in prison for “injury of federal property," under the executive order signed by President Donald Trump during the Black Lives Matter anti-racism protests in July 2020.


"I just had the privilege of signing a very strong Executive Order protecting American Monuments, Memorials, and Statues - and combatting recent Criminal Violence," Mr Trump wrote on Twitter on 26 June, after people took to the streets in the wake of George Floyd’s murder. "Long prison terms for these lawless acts against our Great Country!"
