Omg, fuuuuuck Leslie Stahl. Your response to a siege of the Capitol is to turn Speaker Pelosi’s unwillingness to swallow a poison pill protecting corporations from forcing staff to work during COVID and ignoring first responders, medical staff and teachers into a both sideism? Why don’t you take 60 Minutes to think about that a bit?
“What happened when the protesters tried to get in here [Senate Chamber]?”
What protesters? There were no “protesters” trying to get into the Senate Chamber.
Fucking A; I need for the MSM to stop calling them “protestors.”
They are rioters, insurrectionists and terrorists.
Why not use the term from the recruitment literature.
ETA: to use the BB story.
ETA: Ok, they probably would love to think of themselves as an army. Reminded of the Clash line: feel like a soldier, look like a thief.
I just wanted to highlight that his was a recruited force that thinks of themselves as combatants. “Violent, murderous mob rioting at the Capitol” is probably the most accurate description.
Could someone post a TL;DR for those of us getting the “not available in your country” crap?

Don’t feel bad: democracy and civility aren’t available in the U.S., either.
Seems to work in the UK, which surprised me.
Staffers barracaded the door and sat under a table in silence for 2.5 hrs while hearing rioters trying to break the door down from the other side. They must have been terrified.
I’ve had people banging on my front door shouting death threats at me. I’m still living with the mental health problems 15 years later.
