^ Someone donated a lot of flowers, so my wife and I handed them out to people. There was a tense moment where this lady pooted when I handed her a flower. Thank God no one was shot...

Nah, I didn't see that man. Honestly, DC was live today. There were protests in front of the White House (Lafayette Square, where I was), U Street, Logan Circle, Lincoln Memorial (national Mall area), and Capitol Hill.

The helpers were out. There were street medics helping to cart people away who got gassed. There were people giving out free snacks, water, masks, and hand sanitizer. The city blocked off the streets.

I was very proud of my city today.

I was down there Saturday as well. Lots of different groups marching, speaking, joining each other. It was...fine. Honestly - and I know that as a white guy I'm not supposed to criticize protest methods - I found parts of it to have too much of a party atmosphere. DJ's playing dumb dance songs like you'd hear at a wedding reception and shit; I think for some, it was as much a celebration of being out in public with strangers as it was an expression of frustration, sadness, and anger.

Other parts, though, were more what I expected. Some excellent speakers with good messages. And I don't care what that asshole said about "smaller than expected," that crowd looked enormous enough to me.

Otherwise, concur with all EMCE said. City did a good job, and lots of volunteers handing out things ranging from mini water bottles to pizza and sandwiches.

I'm not going to deny this. It absolutely happened. I would just like to note ( as a native Washitionian) much of this is DC culture. While some might see it as performative, DC culture dictates that as much as you might protest, it is a necessity to break out some go-go music and dance. People like to get together and do a block party. Political fights aside, DC will always party. Always.

Seems like the police response to today's protests is less violent despite the protests being more violent. Trying to figure out why

the US Capitol was breached for the first time since the British did it 207 years ago, yet law enforcement did less to the domestic terrorists, than they did to people peacefully protesting when Trump wanted to pose for a photo op with an upside-down bible

Good shit. Are you an NPC? Because I've seen the same sentiment from about 100 twitter accounts.

OK, looking at the scale of destruction of and violence, this was objectively way lower on the scale than the summer protests and riots.

But, looking at it quantitatively is myopic. We need to look at it qualitatively as well: what exactly happened yesterday that was different and more dangerous to the fabric of the Constitution and democratic institutions relative to the summer events?

Just think about this: If anti-Trump protestors stormed (or tried to) the Capitol, what would the response have been? I mean, if they had announced it in advance and it was known they would, like it was known about yesterday, fully armed riot police and paramilitary personnel would already have been on the ground and thwarted any attempt at a breach of the Capitol, let alone letting them roam inside taking selfies with the cops and breaking into offices of lawmakers and tweeting while sitting on their desks making seditious and treasonous demands.

Is it really that easy to storm the US seat of Government?

What happened yesterday was arguably the biggest white-privilege moment in US history.

"If a Muslim broke into the US Capitol waving an ISIS flag, he’d now be pink mist, but this guy later took a selfie with DC police officers and walked out a free man.

For those upset with my ISIS-Confederate comparison, both insurgent groups shot and killed American soldiers wearing the American flag.

In fact, many Republicans (45%) actively support the actions of those at the Capitol, although as many expressed their opposition (43%).

Quote :
" Overall, one in five voters (21%) say they support the goings-on at the Capitol. "


Nearly half of republicans! 21% of voters! These aren’t just a few wack jobs or fringe conspiracy theorists. There are tons more people just like them.

"the entire conflict was exactly a case of dream against dream. Both sides are on the same side in a sense—they are both selling the same dream.

What we see in these sad cases of dream-on-dream crime is that both sides take the same dream just as seriously. The QAnon Viking at the Senate podium thinks he is genuinely trying to seize power. And the CNN reporter covering him agrees. In propagating this extraordinary popular delusion, which of them is more to blame?
"


LARPing.

Imagine storming the Capital of the United States as the government of the country literally fucking flees and then just wandering around the building confused about why the level isn’t ending instead of declaring a new government and issuing warrants for congressmen’s arrest

Focusing on the Viking is focusing on the wrong part of yesterday. These folks were armed and potentially dangerous including IEDs. This wasn’t cosplay this was an insurrection. A terribly organized one (surprise surprise) but one nonetheless. Many, many more of them should have been arrested.

Being armed is the live action part. Downplaying isn't the right word. Could they and did they cause momentary chaos and danger? Absolutely. Is the system going to let a fat ineffective leader with no support form a rebellion? Absolutely not.
