Well good news is that the democrats took the senate.

It looks that way, but one thing I've learned from watching elections over the last few months is never to be sure about a race until all the votes are in.

The CBC's senior Washington correspondent talking about what it was like to be there.

A woman who helped storm the capitol was killed.

I'm waiting on further details to come out about the shooting, but whatever her role in events, that it happened is a horrific tragedy.

Who shot and killed her because the police weren't doing anything to stop them.

Police warning shot hit in just the right spot.

Wonder if anyone's still on the fence about whether or not the cult of Trump is fascist?

What a shitshow!

At least it got the Senators to take it seriously enough that there were no more valid objections other than to Pennsylvania, and Hawley only objected there so that come 2024 (or 2028) Cruz wouldn't be the only person on stage who could say that he tried to "stop the steal". By the time they got to Wisconsin, whichever Senator had planned to sign on to the objection got cold feet, and even Hawley didn't try to defend his objection to Pennsylvania's votes.

Didn't you know?  That was ANTIFA storming the Capitol Building yesterday, to make Donald Trump and his supporters look really bad!  Ignore that a bunch of them have been identified (and yep, tons of white supremacists), Fox News and Matt "Florida Man" Gaetz says it was ANTIFA dammit, so it was! /s

It's no less stupid than claiming the antifa and BLM rioters last year were "actually" alt-right. Remember that?

This happened partly because of establishment and leftist types normalizing violence and undermining confidence in the electoral process. You wanna crow about how your rioting is getting positive results? Don't be surprised if other people try it. You wanna scream "all cops are bastards"? Don't be surprised if other people turn on law enforcement. And if you want to insist Trump couldn't have won without foreign interference... well, don't be surprised if people insist Biden couldn't have won without fraud.

Like it or not, actions have consequences. This is the chickens coming home to roost. Am I trying to justify what happened? No. What I'm trying to do is explain that when you try to normalize a tactic or an idea, it will inevitably be used against you. Pro-slavery politicians justified their stances based on states' rights, then started whining when Northern states passed personal liberty laws to prevent the return of runaway slaves in defiance of the Fugitive Slave Act. Trotsky endorsed violence and terror against political dissidents, then bitched and moaned when Stalin persecuted his followers. Nazi Germany committed terror bombing against Polish and British cities, then cried foul when the Allies did the same thing to Germany in retaliation. Things like this have happened over and over again. And they'll probably keep happening for as long as humanity exists.

Except there has been evidence and charges brought to right wing extremists and accelerationists who instigated some of the violence to undermine the protests. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2020/06/22/who-caused-violence-protests-its-not-antifa/

What the fuck are you talking about? The only person I see normalizing violence and undermining the confidence in the electoral process is Trump, and it's been Trump since the beginning.

So you're comparing the riots spurred on by the police against peaceful protestors who want police to stop being violent to rioters committing sedition against their own government and trying to stop the electoral process and the peaceful transfer of power?

They are bastards. I don't know why the right is surprised when they turn against them as well.

It's true people were saying that yet the peaceful transfer of power happened and liberals accepted Trumps legitimate win in 2016 even with or without foreign interference. What I would have liked to have seen is the right do the fucking same instead of being sore loser cry babies.

Leave it to Vanto the Barely Concealed Alt-Right Shitbag to carry water for literal terrorists and act like this is AKSHUALLY THE LEFT'S FAULT. It's always the Left's fault with shitheads like you. You turn things around every single time when the right misbehaves to try and turn it around "well, if the left hadn't been JUST AS BAD things like this wouldn't be happening."

Fuck you and fuck your just as bad waffling.

Nobody here is gonna take your shit, especially after what happened in DC. Nobody here accepts what garbage you spew out of your second anus you call a mouth.

So get lost, leave, go, never come back you literal sleazebag.

https://www.cbc.ca/news/world/trump-concedes-1.5865609

Trump has finally conceded the election, and called the attack on the US Capitol--an attack he encouraged--"heinous" and claimed it left him "outraged by the violence, lawlessness and mayhem".

Also, the riot has now claimed five lives, including one member of the Capitol Police.

Over/under on how many days until Trump flips on this?
