Fucker…even just standing “at the police line” (which I highly doubt) lent energy and credibility to the lunacy.

“We didn’t go up there,” Melvin said. “We had no business being part of that.”

But you were part of it, Melvin, you were.

Why is anyone who says “red-blooded” allowed to serve in government?

Fuck these fuckers.

Ummmmm…to be really honest, it would not be a huge surprise to me if it turns out there are photos that say otherwise.

Yes – and the doofuses who went in to the Capitol after seeing the outnumbered police were standing back, that people inside were coordinating with them, and most of all the president, his family, FOX/OANN and top GOP had been encouraging them all week – no wonder some of them thought it was a lark. One of those ‘five to fifteen’ larks.

Melvin Adams wrote…that he and Sandy Adams had gone to Trump’s “Stop the Steal” rally…to “join with many, many thousands of wonderful red-blooded American patriots.”

I see. Like these “patriots”?

Smells of a preemptive move on their part, I am sure they know that someone will ID them on photos, so the idea is to get their version out front.

Yes, it’s one of those locutions that hardly anyone thinks about.

It used to mean virile. No surprise that it has come to be a synonym for patriotic.

I’ve been employed in government for a number of years. There’s a frequent reminder to employees stating that if you are arrested or involved in a legal dispute that impacts your employment such a felony drug or drunken driving it has to be reported pronto.
