Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, January 24, 2023

The month before the riot at the U.S. Capitol, members of the Proud Boys were growing increasingly angry about the outcome of the 2020 election and were expecting a "civil war," a former member told jurors on Tuesday as he took the stand in the seditious conspiracy case against the group's former leader. Matthew Greene testified in the case against former Proud Boys national chairman Enrique Tarrio and four lieutenants under a cooperation deal with the government after pleading guilty to storming the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, with fellow extremists. Greene told jurors that the Proud Boys' conversations became more heated as December 2020 wore on and challenges to President Donald Trump's election loss were unsuccessful. The Proud Boys were getting "ready and willing for anything that was going to happen," Greene said, adding that the group saw itself as "essentially the tip of the spear."

"The Proud Boys Have Really Strict Rules About Jerking Off

"A Proud Boy may not --------- alone more often than once every thirty days [ ... ] if he needs to --------- it must be within one yard of a woman with her consent. The woman may not be a prostitute."

The rule also denies an exception for cyber-sex with one's wife."


Well... at least now we know what's driving the rwing sockpuppets here so crazy.

Proud Boys were expecting a Civil War with themselves at the vanguard.

Trump was looking for an excuse to declare Martial Law to stop the transfer of power.

I've often wondered what stopped him. Except maybe it was the brass at the Pentagon who refused to go along. The Army is under no obligation to obey if they think the President is off his rocker.

If true, I'd like to see THAT smoking gun brought up at Trump's trial for Conspiracy to Commit Sedition.

Maybe it will. Garland's DOJ has done a good job of keeping their goodies close to the vest. No leaks for the armchair amateurs to gnaw on.

It's impossible to say it was a spontaneous riot that sprung out of a peaceful protest when YOU WEAR HOODIES THAT SAY "CIVIL WAR 1/6/21" and stockpile weapons across the river in Virginia.

stockpile weapons across the river in Virginia.


Posters here have argued that since the guns were stored in Virginia 01/06 intentions were benign.

- when YOU WEAR HOODIES THAT SAY "CIVIL WAR 1/6/21" and stockpile weapons across the river in Virginia.

Isn't that what all tourists at the Capitol do?

Judging by all of the gunfire I hear every weekend here in Boebert's district, they're still practicing for their civil war.
