Can you say ‘intelligence failure?’
Prior to the mob assault on the U.S. Capitol Building Wednesday — an attack that President Trump did not ‘incite’ or ask supporters to launch — there was plenty of ‘chatter’ on Trump-friendly online forums that should have tipped cops off (and the NSA).
'I fully plan to incite people to storm the Capitol Building and run ALL the politicians out of it. Belts and Whips strongly recommended,' one user posted to the pro-Trump forum TheDonald.Win on Monday.
Another user wrote on Sunday they should 'storm the capitol' if Congress were to ignore the president’s very valid claims of vote fraud.
The Daily Caller added:
Posts on the far-right forum indicate that users were fed up with nothing but talk of widespread voter fraud from President Donald Trump and his allies since his election defeat in November.
All but one of the 62 lawsuits filed by Trump and his allies alleging voter fraud and irregularities in the 2020 election have failed in court, according to USA Today.
'I'm actually disappointed that this is yet another Stop the Steal rally because I want this all to be over and done with soon,' one user wrote in response to a post highlighting a now-deleted Trump tweet promoting his speech Wednesday. 'Stop the steal rallies do nothing unless we start physically removing traitors from office.'
'Needs to be a show of force as opposed tojust (sic) another rally where they wait for us to go home,' another user wrote to the forum on Wednesday.
'Encircle congress. Make sure they can't leave. Primary objective,' replied another user.
'I'm thinking it will be literal war on that day,' one user posted to the forum, according to the Daily Beast. 'Where we'll storm offices and physically remove and even kill all the D.C. traitors and reclaim the country.'
And so on.
We’re not going to condone what happened on Wednesday. As one editorial put it, “Patriots do not storm their capitol.”
True. But also, we are going to shine a glaring light on the RINOs, Democrats, and deep state pieces of [censored] who have denigrated, insulted, abused, lied to, and dismissed the president’s supporters long before Trump ever got elected.
And we ask: At what point are those Americans supposed to stop taking the abuse? What needs to happen before they are ‘allowed’ to rebel?
We remind our detractors that our founders didn’t ask King George’s permission if they could throw off his tyranny. They just did it.
