Capitol Police Chief Thomas Manger has recommended that fencing be put up around the Capitol amid concerns about a Sept. 18 rally to defend those arrested during the Jan. 6 attack, according to a source familiar with the department's planning.

I'll be glad when this meme runs its course as have hundreds before it and the meme people who never have a thought of their own latch on to a new one.

#2 How about using non-lethals first? If that works, then they can be arrested and charged. If it doesn't work, how about going through the escalation process of issuing warnings and moving up to lethals if the situation warrants it?

It's amusing to me that a fence like this is deemed as effective in DC but at the southern border it's deemed useless.

People don't cross over the DC fence with a plane.

Well, I hope they don't anyway.

I don't think they should put up a fence, just put out crates of horse de-wormer. They will all have liver failure before getting to the doors.

BELLRINGER you've never seen DC or the southern border so don't pretend you have.

And this liberal has already said he wants to see sound based weapons used to blow out the ear drums of any attackers not to mention heat rays that will set their hair on fire.

No one has deemed it "useless" but you. Apparently.

It's not useless if used effectively as part of an overall and well thought out and well functioning immigration policy.

Too bad we don't have one of those.

And.

Too bad old Trumpy and his crew were too power crazed to use what money he stole from the pentagon to build anything effectively.

We were treated to a nonstop bevy about how the wall will just be tunneled under, laddered over and walked around. That is was horribly ineffective and xenophobic as well. Almost all of that coming from the fever swamp of the left.

I completely agree.

Too bad we don't have one of those.

Well, we did, until Biden undid all of it.

I agree with you regarding the end-around that was performed to get wall funding. Nevertheless, construction and refurb of existing fencing was coming along nicely. Biden put an immediate stop to all of it.

Comparisons to the idiotic 'wall' at the Mexican border are insane.

Immigrants are in no way a threat to American democracy. RWNJ insurrectionists are.

This fencing would be utterly pointless at the border. It's designed to slow down an attack enough that human security can deal with the threat. I know RWNJs would love to put a million troops at the border, but that's not going to happen. Without eyeballs on every foot of this fence, some guy with a wire cutter would make short work of it.

I think the fence is a bad idea. They just need a show of force and don't get goaded into a fight.

That's what happened last time. That's the reason so few Trumpites died.

I would have shot them. There was every common-sense reason to shoot them. The problem at the time was that the mob was much too white. Police thought they'd get into trouble for killing them. In the event, they were in a world of hurt for not pretending they were Black folk.

I've heard right wingers real reason for hating bill Clinton was that he wasn't afraid to bomb white people in other countries.

And if the heat and sound weapons don't work on these thugs lets see how long they hang around when a belt fed mini gun is pointing at them.

I'm not so sure that was the case. I think it was because they were vastly outnumbered.
I think the point of this rally is to provoke law enforcement to use over the top violence against them as many have cheered on through different threads here as some sort of payback for January 6.
Then the insurrectionist supporters will cry we were peacefully using are first amendment rights when the heavy handed government goons attacked us...just like January 6...see they hate freedom.

Of course he did. It was poorly thought out nonsense.

In some places border fencing is necessary. In some places all they did was destroy a desert pristine environment for nothing.

Some of the wall will be finished. Some of it does what it was designed to do. Managing border traffic. Some of it was just ridiculous political BS.

A talking point.

Trump did not have a common sense immigration policy. Have we been get had one? Congress does not have the balls to deal with it. So they continue to leave it to the President. Just telling refugees that you are reducing the amount Americans can accept and then spending billions on a wall is not a common sense immigration policy. Obviously.

It's one reason Trumpy and the Deplorables lost. Besides being a twice impeached Nutcase he is now 60 times a loser. We always knew he had no actual immigration plan. He is racist. He could never accept more refugees. As a racist he could only accept less. And never ever appear to be helping them.

It took a couple of years but that border was relatively stable during his last two years in office and certain policies, including stay in Mexico, were the primary reasons.

Run about 100 amps of power through this fence, switched on about 12 seconds after the terrorists start touching it. We'll see who the strongest ones in the crowd really are...

You're accidentally making it a great comparison to the border wall. A traffic control device easily defeated with simple tools that requires constant manning by human security.
