    Capitol rioter Brandon Fellows admits to obstruction in hearing | wusa9.com

    I was almost going to put this in the Jokes section, because it's almost comical. That is, it would be comical if it wasn't so sad.

    He entered the Capitol through a broken window and smoked weed in a congressman's office.

    This guy is a couple sandwiches short of a picnic. Even if he missed his court-ordered mental health and drug testing appointments, there needs to be some kind of psych eval on this guy. He's a bit off.

    Would tin foil work to block signals from a cellphone?

    The sad thing is that this is the sort of person that Trump would not care about at all. He is a prime example of what a "Useful idiot" is.

    When ur not two brite.

    These conservative extremists seem to want some sort of anarchy, but still want the benefits of an organized and cooperative society.

    We love capitalism and hate socialism. But why doesn't Biden stop the rising prices of gas and food?

    Pretty atypical of most of the January 6 protesters. He evinces obvious dementia. Still it’s not like such a demented person was President. Wait...

    It seems more and more that Trump's call for an insurrection wasn't that dangerous as only bumbling idiots followed his call.
    The real problem seems to be the mental health system as too many bumbling idiots are roaming the streets.

    Some people are just things I can't mention here. He's probably being defiant, another of the many who are sold on this idea of an alternate reality where one defense attorney was accused of being a traitor for pointing out real Constitutional history to a client. This guy I suspect has also watched way too many cop dramas.

    Yeah. He belongs in jail, but this is just sad and is another example of the self-inflicted horror that's going on in the US. Its such a waste and people could do so much better. :(

    Except there was no “call for insurrection”, and on 1-6 Trump was literally telling people to go home after his speech, and not do anything stupid. And yet some idiots still decided to behave just as pathetic and disgracefully as blm and antifa.

    And yet people still died as a result. And republicans in high office encouraged and enabled them. So did and do some media talking heads.

    Ultimately, that may be the answer. I think all factions in this political rift should sit down together, smoke a peace pipe, and call it quits. Love, peace, and rock & roll.

    Don't be so quick to jump to such a broad conclusion. Just wait until the trials of the militia members start. Those people weren't messing around.

    Unless you record it and post it to YouTube. If that is your plan go ahead. It makes the world a brighter place:

    People very often have a selective memory. His memory may be editing when Trump told the rioters to go home. Since he said idiotic things like "We love you" and "You are very special to us" He may have assumed that was at the end of his speech. After all, what moron would say that to a group of insurrectionists?:rolleyes:

    Now, here's another one: Judge Calls Capitol Rioter Facing 20 Years in Prison 'Foolish' for Acting as Own Lawyer (msn.com)

    A fool for a client, indeed. He's facing 20 years.
