The stuff I've heard in the last 72 hours\u2014from members of Congress, law enforcement friends, gun shop owners, MAGA devotees\u2014is absolutely chilling.— Tim Alberta (@TimAlberta) January 10, 2021
We need to brace for a wave of violence in this country. Not just over the next couple of weeks, but over the next couple of years.
The coming Trumpist events on Jan 17 and Jan 20 will probably be much smaller in scale, especially in DC. The MAGA crew can't buy another flight and take more days off work so soon after Jan 6.
Some of the Trumpist forums are actively suspicious of these events, claiming they're FBI or Antifa traps. A lot of people at TDW felt that the *design* of this flyer was too lefty to be real!
Unfortunately, that doesn't mean everything will be OK. The statehouse events on Jan 17 have the potential to turn violent, where a few hundred people could be enough to overwhelm local authorities.
MAGA anger at a lot of the GOP is high, as well as against Dems. Even red states could see problems, so I hope authorities are prepared.
So far: very little. The overwhelming consensus in pro-Trump spaces is that the supposed marches today are FBI/CIA/Antifa false flag events or honeypots designed to draw them out.
Before the Jan 6 rally, MAGA spaces online were full of people saying they were going, planning their routes, making banners, wishing they could join. For today, it's the opposite. The message in Trumpworld is "stay home".
This lawsuit ticks a lot of Trump boxes:
🟣As a dispute between states, it starts out in SCOTUS
🟣It seeks to put enough EVs in play to swing the whole election result
🟣It's the 'big beautiful lawsuit' Trump has wanted all along
Breitbart hasn't published the actual complaint, and it doesn't appear to be anywhere else yet, but we can say some things about it from their reporting:
1. This is not a fraud claim. There won't be any Dominion or Chavez or North Korean submarines shipping Dem votes etc in it.
From the tiny excerpts published, it sounds like the Texas claim is essentially "These states didn't follow their own election rules and that's not fair on Texans"
