It's unsettling that Trump has been so successful in convincing people that the vote was rigged, and that the people who believe it are the ones with guns. This shit could get very dark. There are a lot of "patriot groups"* waiting to be mobilized. I think that we're going to see a few OKC bombing/Ruby Ridge/Waco events over the coming years.

At this point the biggest villain is not even Trump but the GOP in its absolute totality.

I am absolutely more concerned about another OKC than I am of any sort of international threat.

The "Secretary of State" is a complete buffoon. What an embarrassment.

Does Kim Jong Un believe that Trump lost?

Agree 100%. Trump is a symptom, they are the disease.

I'm also wondering, on a practical level, how they think that things will go once they steal the election but the rest of the world governments have extended congratulations to Biden and for all intents and purposes consider him to be the President (as of Jan). It's just so freaking bizarre.

And yes, we all know this is about the grift and ego for Trump, Senate control for McConnell and the others and ideology for freaks like Stephen Miller. But as many people have pointed out here, their insane followers, armed to the teeth will at some point lose their minds over this, more than they already have.

u2 posted a Biden video on Instagram, the usual "interesting" comments.

The video is actually from RTE

I disagree to an extent.

Trumpism is the virus that is eating away at the GOP's immunocompromised body.

Parasite is definitely the beautiful and insulting term we need here.

It's reassuring that while the President and party in power refuse to accept the results of the election, he is replacing the top defense department leadership.

Imagine if this was happening in another country. You’d hear calls for UN observers.

I still don’t see any legal standing for this election to be overturned. Is be more worried if the margin of victory was a lot smaller.

I think a lot of this is a distraction.
