Yeah. At first I thought the guys they were interviewing had come around or were from the more 'normal' GOP crowd. They were articulate and respectful for the most part and describing the situation and then you heard their views and it hits you.
The writers chose their congressmen very well, especially with the dynamic of that Republican.

Having the guys who 'invaded' and the congressmen who hid in the building being interviewed in the same setting and switching from scene to scene like that was surreal. You best described the documentary in being "unvarnished".

I enjoy this format much more over the ones which have their own analysts and commentary. Although I suppose that those have their own place.

I hate the internet so much.
Searched up Jan 6th cause of this conversation and the documentary.

And now I'm getting ads from the Epoch Times on "what Jan 6th really was".

it's all commercial now, or well has been for years, but is worse

Bad sign for democracy

Quote :
"Breaking news: Sen. Mitt Romney, the Republican presidential nominee in 2012 and the only member of his party to twice vote to convict former president Donald Trump in politically charged impeachment trials, announced Wednesday that he will not seek a second term in the Senate representing Utah, saying in an interview that it is time for a new generation to “step up” and “shape the world they’re going to live in.”"

I'm undecided if that's a bad sign for democracy. Could be an older person setting a responsible end date on his elected service, which could be a good sign in some ways.

Although I'm sure I share your extreme cynicism that the eventual replacement will be any kind of upgrade in responsible leadership.

^ he’s only 4 years younger than Biden, honestly thought he was younger than that

Probably a good move to step down then

Trump teachers the underlings how to commit major crimes and get Away with it, and it creates a bunch of mini trumps everywhere causing chaos.

" House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) said Tuesday that Republicans are blurring faces in security footage from inside the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, to protect rioters from prosecution.

“We have to blur some of the faces of persons who participated in the events of that day because we don’t want them to be retaliated against and to be charged by the DOJ,” Johnson said at a press conference.

Were they spotted due to all the footage being made public recently, or before that? Says they were arrested December 8th so maybe so.

^^^DU jour, dang it!

I think the term "cranks" is somewhat dismissive of the severity of mental illness or willful ignorance required to actually buy into this stuff. I'm hopeful it's just trolling.

willful ignorance is not in the same boat as severe mental illness

that’s pretty dismissive of legitimate severe mental illness

I wasn't trying to start a debate. On first read, I felt like crank let them off too easy. A common definition for this usage is "an annoyingly eccentric person". Because I find the views espoused by these individuals dangerous, to me it goes beyond eccentric (which you could eventually brush off as charming once you get used to it).

https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Crank&page=3

Quote :
" Crank
(Noun) Typically an older conservative person who’s usually retired and spends a lot of time on their recliner watching Fox News and finding frivolous things to complain about. Prone to Not In My Back Yard (NIMBY) outrage, they have a hot temper and very willing to get messy. Some of the most entitled people you’ll ever meet, ready to throw fits to get what they want, and often do. Often associated but not limited to the Baby Boomer generation.
Did you hear about those local cranks opposing that new sports field?

peak internet moment

But now that Urban Dictionary has been cited (and for some reason, going all the way to page three LOL), I must say, if someone is "right here", it'd be The Coz.

Whatever Urban Dictionary may say, the general definition of a "Crank" is someone who is obsessively and openly interested in a topic to the point where it is strange and off putting to a general audience.

Either way, I think that there is a clear agreement on the situation at hand.

Good day now,

Those seven include former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows and former Trump lawyers Rudy Giuliani and John Eastman."
