    Maybe. No one knows yet. But a better term for it would 'domestic terrorism". The sort of thing Northern Ireland knew as 'the troubles'. True anarchy is unlikely at this point. As for a period of troubles, who knows what the odds are now?

    True but by gawd, we've never witnessed anything like that.

    I mean, the closest we've come was Boris Johnson's illegal prorogation of parliament but he and his supporters ultimately accepted the unanimous judgment of the UK supreme court.

    But, granted, the Daily Mail is constantly inveighing against political opponents of Brexit and/or the government as "saboteurs" and the like, so I do appreciate your point. It's dangerous and incendiary rhetoric - but at least it has remained rhetorical thus far.

    Video shows police just let this mob through the gates. No attempt to stop. Talk about White Privilege on full display

    Trump excels at providing just enough cover for himself that his supporters will feel pious and just when rationalizing away his behavior. I suppose you achieve his level of skill after a lifetime of practice, such as he has had.

    Good news for the nation. Maybe not such good news for Ossoff.

    Indeed, he did not exercise his authority over the "mob" and perform his civic duty as president, by condemning the unlawful actions of these people against the chamber of their own representative democracy.

    Even Boris Johnson has tweeted, "disgraceful scenes in US Congress, the United States stands for democracy around the world".

    That's damning with the faintest of praise.

    Thank gawd Trump has lost both houses and the White House, though. I think that is probably a record: a President losing everything in his first term in a clean slate of abject failure.

    Trump is the ultimate "loser" (to use his own language).

    The **** **** ***-wipe pathetic failure of a POTUS basically stepped up and said to the crowd just now. “It was a fraudulent election that they stole from us, but you have to go home in peace.”

    What a pathetic and anti-American piece of ****. What a thuggish chump.

    Congrats conservatives. Take him with you when you leave our good country.

    It's regrettable that the many lessons Trump has offered the country and the world on the value of electing people of good character and intentions are lost on so many millions of people and are likely to soon enough be forgotten by most of the remainder.

    They've breached the chamber. This one here is yelling 'Trump won that election.'

    Christian Nationalists should be deported. To Mexico, a beautiful Christian and Capitalist nation. Perfect match!

    History won't be kind to conservatives. Just like their Southern DemoKKKrat party..
    They're a stain on American history.

    Two pipe bombs were (controlled) exploded by police. Several police have been hospitalized. So much for the "law and order" party...

    So democracy should be overturned because people demanded justice? What a bizarre motion of "payback".

    Forgive him, Father Heathen. His people have never seen anything in their history even remotely like what might be starting up in America. He has no reason to know better.

    Mexico is a staunchly Catholic country with a social-democratic president that wouldn't want anything to do with those sorry excuses for Christians.
