Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, August 10, 2022

Some users on pro-Trump internet forums told users to "lock and load," agitated for civil war and urged protesters to head to Mar-a-Lago in the hours after news broke that the FBI searched former President Donald Trump's Florida compound on Monday. More mainstream pro-Trump influencers, including podcasters with millions of followers on YouTube or Twitter, have also heightened their rhetoric.

One user posting about the "civil war" shortly after the search was Tyler Welsh Slaeker, a Washington state man awaiting sentencing for storming the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, according to previous research and statements posted online. A report in December by Advance Democracy, a nonpartisan, nonprofit investigative group, found that Slaeker posted to the pro-Trump internet forum TheDonald under the username "bananaguard62."

On Monday night, the username "bananaguard62" posted the top reply to the "lock and load" post.

"Are we not in a cold civil war at this point?" the account asked. Another user responded, "several points ago." Another top reply to Slaeker quoted a notorious antisemitic Nazi rallying cry.

Some of the dummies will undoubtedly pull some ---.

Some will use it as an excuse to try and start a race war.

When they do, innocent people will die, they will get caught and end up sitting next to the Faketriots from 1/6 in federal lockup.

They were all for the investigation of Clinton.

They were all for Trump's 2018 law that made taking these documents a felony.

Now they want to turn fascist because its being used against them. Some are supporting more insurrection.

Traitors all of them.

The party that backed the blue and disdained the defund-the-police crowd now flips. Gingrich is channeling Johnnie Cochran. Trump may be an ignoramus and a clod, but he has the capacity to turn people inside out.

Trump is a sick soul who cannot imagine a world in which people act on principle or think about the welfare of others. While in power, Trump wanted to use the FBI to punish his political opponents ("Lock her up") and reward his friends ("Go easy on Michael Flynn"). He projects his own corrupt motives onto others and assumes that the FBI investigation is nothing but a Democratic power grab. It would be pathetic if he had not dragged an entire political party into the fever swamps with him.

This experiment in self-government requires a minimum amount of social trust to succeed. With every tweet that spreads cynicism and lies, with every call to arms that welcomes civil conflict, Trumpist Republicans are poisoning the nation they so ostentatiously claim to love.

I know that Trump has upset the space-time continuum when I find myself agreeing with Mona Charen - an experience seldom occurring in decades of intersections. The National Archives knew that Trump wrongly took documents that didn't belong to him - many allegedly classified - to MAL which violates prevailing law. He was given a year and a half to return that which didn't belong to him, and he didn't. So now, the FBI executed a judge-ordered search warrant and reclaimed property that belongs to the US Government, not Donald Trump. Then he and his cult are claiming this wholly legal act is a presage to the top-down type of authoritarian law enforcement he tried to use against his perceived enemies when in the White House, which now becomes a reason for his cult followers to take up arms against the government.

Donald Trump continues to show the world that he is the antithesis of an American patriot defending our Constitution against enemies foreign and domestic. Trump not only welcomed foreign enemies into the Oval Office and shared deeply classified secrets, he continues to be the biggest, most dangerous domestic threat to our republic that this nation has ever confronted.

I do find it interesting that Tony Roma is posting a piece by Mona Charen. Prior to Trump she was very likely persona non grata in these parts.

Do you have any clue what's going on in this nation?

Trump Supporters Are Calling for Civil War After FBI Search of Mar-a-Lago

Violent rhetoric circulates on the pro-Trump internet following FBI search, including from a Jan. 6 rioter

And there's plenty more reporting just like the above, all of it based on factual information, something you're unfamiliar with as you repeatedly spew lies and distortions.

The only Drama Queen on this thread is you with your fabulist renditions of demonstrable lies.

They back their infallible leader before the evidence is known. They cry fascism when a legal search is conducted with probable cause. They threaten the Atty General for doing his job. They choose fealty to a criminal over bowing to the rule of law. They say they love America.

Oh look, BellyAche, again, attacks peaceful protest by BLM and tries to compare it to the insurrection of 1/6, again.

BellyAche, again, ignores the reports that the riots, which started after the protests, were mainly carried out by Rightwing agitators, again.

BellyAche also ignores the fact that in 2020, Rightwing domestic terrorists also attacked the Capitol buildings in Tennessee and Michigan, with plans of kidnapping the governor of Michigan.

BellyAche only showed up on this thread to deflect from the actions of his Trumper brethren.

He supports this civil war, even though he doesn't understand the consequences of his support.

#9. I didn't sleep through it. It was a riot and it's an event I condemn and am glad to see those who broke the law held accountable. It lasted roughly three hours. The 2020 riots spanned months. I condemn ALL of it. CAn you say the same?

It is all so so simple and obvious. Trump supporters do not want him to be held accountable for his crimes. And they are determined to disrupt any criminal proceedings against Trump to insure that those crimes are never proven up in a court of law.

This isn't rocket science.

They already tried a civil war.

How did that end again?

Oh right they couldn't even handle small arms fire from cops and ran when they heard soldiers were coming to shoot them.

They lack the fortitude, attention span,
the age range (the majority of GOPers are
now over 60 yrs of age), and the will to
fashion half of the nation into an implement
of war.

What will be seen, is more and more 'lone wolf'
insurrectionist types, well armed, taking the
law into their own hands.

To which I have one reply.

"Put them down!"

Don't arrest them, don't coddle them and make excuses
of a 'childhood gone wrong'. Shoot them, dead.
One less nutter to cause havoc. If they want to pretend
that they are warriors, let them suffer the warrior's
price, for a war ill waged and ill thought out.

Agitating for civil war is a crime. these traitors should be arrested and mailed and that is sort of lenient considering they really deserve firing squad.
