Let’s give her family what they want. Pence, if he were a man, would attend the funeral and try to say…“just kidding.” These fucks never clean up behind themselves. Party of personal responsibility, my ass. ETA: The real victims were are the nearly 400,000 Americans (who weren’t getting their proper respect) and who died by the hand of this deluded cult and their leader.

I’m with you but now I’m thinking about the trauma suffered by everyone who weren’t part of the protest mob.

“It is my own personal belief that the President’s words and rhetoric incited a riot last night that killed four of his biggest fans and I believe that we should invoke the 25th amendment”

“Biggest fans”? That’s what they call cultists these days? Traitorous rioters? Oh they’re his biggest fans! Sympathies to this guy and I’m down with what he’s asking for, but come on. The riot killed four deluded cultists (and a police officer trying to protect our representatives).

The deceased woman was photographed earlier in the day carrying one of those “Don’t Tread on Me” flags. Then trampled by the mob. My heart is too heavy today to appreciate the grim irony.

“There were people stacked 2-3 deep … people just crushed.”

That ain’t nothin’ compared to the mountain of people that Chiselin’ Trump walked all over to get where he’s at.

And, by the way, those people weren’t crushed. They were Trumpled.

Mine isn’t. When you hang with sheeple and get trampled in the stampede, it’s hard to feel any sympathy for the damage done by the hoof prints across your back.

Only makes me wish that Beavis and Butthead were at the bottom of the pile.

My question is, did they go past the barrier after they were “trampled”? That’s where they broke the law.

A friend who was with Boyland at the riot told Atlanta CBS affiliate WGCL that she was trampled as the mob surged forwards and clashed with Capitol police.

Guess she should have hung out with a more literate crowd.

Well, provided they can identify the perpetrators, the family is fully within their rights to sue them into oblivion…

I’m going to be nice and just say that I really do feel bad for the families of these people. I know a lot of folks who post here have Q addled loved ones, and it’s got to be tough. But it’s really hard to feel for people who died seeking to disenfranchise 81 million people because they thought we’re all baby eating pedos.

Breonna Taylor was killed in her own bed, in her own home, minding her own business.

2020 severely depleted my empathy pantry.

I know where my remaining supplies are going.

You have to have a special kind of stupid constituency to keep re-eecting him.

“Don’t Tread On Me” flag . . . promptly gets tramped to death. I don’t care how serious the circumstances — that is comedy GOLD right there. It’s GOLD, Jerry! I’m literally crying from laughing so hard. I had to re-type this post three times because I can’t see straight from laughing so hard. LOL.

And it was all for a dumbfuck halfwit who was lying to her, but she was such a fucking ignoramus rhat she got herself killed in the most ironic manner possible. One might say her expectations for the event fell flat.

“Tragically she was there”

I say she freely and irresponsibly was there…

… and got killed.

She was killed during a break-in. She was attempting to break in. In the process, she got killed by her co-conspirators who were excited and enthusiastic that their offense against the Republic seemed to be succeeding.
