If I may proffer the following...

The people involved seem to have been fastidious in their planning of the, let's call it, event.

They seem to have a reasonably good attention to detail.

They filmed their escapades apparently to study and see what mistakes they made.

So why didn't they think that such videos might eventually be used as evidence against them?

And as a corollary...

What have other right-wing extremist groups learnt from the mistakes made here?

That last item is what concerns me.

I am the Governor's Deputy Digital Director. I see everything that is said about and to her online.

Every single time the President does this at a rally, the violent rhetoric towards her immediately escalates on social media.

It has to stop. It just has to.

The President mentions the Governor of Michigan, the crowd chants lock her up, and the President says lock them all up

These fine patriots were simply attempting to exercise their Second Amendment right to defend themselves -- and all of us -- from tyranny.

They deserve a full pardon from President Donald J. TRUMP before the next sundown.

Apparently they had the local Posse Comitatus (Comatose) Sheriffs helping them.

The question lingers in the air. Like an air biscuit.

Just floating there.

Why is the President of the United States encouraging these outlaws?

Why?

Will someone please step up and explain the rationale behind Pres Trump's support of these folk?

Maybe Eberly knows too.

He wants them to kill her,duh. Sometimes things are simple. Don't look for anything subtle,he's saying exactly what he wants. These outlaw thugs are understanding him far better than you guys see.

It's terrifying that he's that far gone mentally and socially. But it is what it is.

Be ready for anything in the next few weeks.

This ---- is coming to a head and it WON'T be pretty.

We on the left need to be aware of the danger.

These guys are basically cowards if stood up to.

It may well come to that. Open war on American streets.

It's so fun living in these "interesting times".

Y'all Qeda ain't that bright. Bunch short d***ed Billy Bob's, Bubba's, and Cletus running around guns overcompensating, for their short comings.
The sister/wives are the ones who really suffer though.

Again I have to say this - the Conservatives in this country are utilizing tactics that have been employed time and again to sow division and lead to war both international and civil. Here is but a small sample of what may come.

For what it's worth, my view is that Trump has only one ideological principle; is this, ( whatever "this" might be ) in the best interest of Donald Trump?

As a consequence Trump will accept any ideological group into his tent with the only requirement for entry being that the group supports him and will vote for him. Whether they be dangerous, conspiracy or religious nut cases, or just plain old deplorables, if they support Trump, regardless of why, he's their man - until of course it is no longer in his interest, when he is abruptly not their man and never even knew them.

Headline should read:

Videos Show 'Militia' terrorist Training to Kidnap Michigan Governor

Training exercises by the militia terrorists that plotted to capture the governor of Michigan have been released in shocking new videos. In one clip a group of men dressed in military gear get out of a car and fire rounds from assault rifles into the distance.


Calling them a "militia" belittles who they are and what their actions represent.

They should all be sent to Guantanamo.

No, they are American citizens, they should be treated as such and not sent to that abomination of justice. In fact, the detainees at Guantanamo should have a day in court.

they are American citizens,

So? If they weren't white, they be dead and painted as terrorists.

The only reason they're being called a militia and haven't been locked away in federal prison or in a coffin is because they're privileged.

They're going to federal prison. The FBI conviction rate is very, very high. The luckiest will go to FCI Milan and still get visitors, the rest will be distributed to Leavenworth, etc, and rot away.

I think they are terrorists and should be treated as such. Their actions were designed to terrorize politicians and citizens Guantanamo is too good for them.

Great. Terrorist camps in America.

Now we are going to have to send troops to America to make sure the terrorist don't have a safe place to attack Americans from.

I am tired of America being Americans police force.
