  Also, that tattoo looks like the Mark of the Outsider from DIshonored (what was someone saying about neckbeards earlier? :P)

 

It supposedly is confirmed elsewhere to BE the Mark of the Outsider from Dishonored.

This just hit me: The Trojan Horse scam - that simple trick possibly used like 3,000 yrs ago - it would work for any foreign power trying to storm Capitol Hill. Simply dress up as trumpists and wrap yourself in American and Confederate flags and bumble right in. Most likely, the guards won't make a serious effort stopping you.

I still can't believe it was this easy and on a day like that, with all of the warnings and info already out there.

Hell yeah, we have wars to fight! But dont worry gentle soul, we just printed up 2T in one year for "stimulus" so its all good around here. 👍

...

Uh...

Do you pay taxes?

That stimulus money wasn't some magical gift from the money printer. It was a percentage of money I already gave to them. A rather small percentage.

That's been gfted1's point regarding the 'magic money' proposals (guaranteed basic income, guaranteed college education, etc.) all along, as far as I know.

I heard one of the rioters was a Texas lawyer. His boss saw his picture on the Internet and fired him. You can’t even break into the capital and get away with it these days!

Well look at Jon Schaffer right in the middle of the charge:

Kay, so given the lyrics of A Glorious Burden this isn't much of a surprise, but still, I mean, come on. Guess he figured he won't be touring for a while anyway. :p

No mind to think. No will to break. No voice to cry suffering.

Say what you will about the MAGA marauders, but it really takes dedication to keep up the anti-mask stance to the point of publicly broadcasting their identity as they commit crimes that could land them in prison for decades.
