The whole freedom caucus is full of angry white dudes who are okay with a fascist movement in their party… Of course, they’re gonna be assholes to each other as much as to the rest of us.

T minus 3 days and counting. I am of the thought process that (as much as they are capable of planning) they want to burn the country down and try to blame Biden for it in '24. “Sooner reign in hell than serve in heaven” sort of thing. I can only pray the Dems are prepared to counter this, because I do not think they can stop it.

This is exactly what they’re doing. Break as much as they can, sow as much chaos as possible, and then exploit the chaos to usher in a new crypto-nazi regime under Trump. It’s transparently obvious.

Apparently, the GOP still hasn’t actually learned that there are dozens if not hundreds of cameras all over Capital Hill that run 24 hours a day. I can’t wait for the footage, complete with Yakety Sax.

Violence just seems to kind of occur whenever Kevin’s around.

The GOP factions hate each other, some are strongly inclined toward violence, and several are allegedly armed in meeting rooms/on the House floor.

This truly seems like a recipe for disaster.

He noted that the Republican-controlled Rules Committee removed a provision that Democrats had put in place for the previous two-year period prohibiting firearms in hearing rooms and committees. One of the new GOP majority’s first acts was to remove the magnetometers that former Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., had installed outside the House chamber after the Jan. 6 riot.

No longer content with turning the clock back to the 1950’s, Republicans are twisting it back to the 1850’s.
