How long before Republicans turn on the military for such a "betrayal"?
Sometime between the muzzle flashes and things going dark/cold?

*please note I DO NOT WISH death on anyone. But if you're actively committing treason by trying to violently stop the inauguration of a duly elected President, and you decide to take on the US Military, things are going to happen.

I had a tinge of hope that civil war could be avoided, but after watching the sickening spectacle from house republicans during the impeachment hearing with their still defending the scourge of Donald Trump I can see no other option but for eventual civil war. Republicans just can not see the truth, and Democrats just can not put up with more of this republican hypocrisy. Republicans tried to overthrow the United States government for gods sake and republicans won’t even admit that.

Not sure why you're surprised sadly... the shock of last Weds wore off quickly.

:(

I was about to tune in this morning and then I decided against it and went for a walk instead.

tbh the only place I've seen it said that civil war is gonna take place in the USA again is right here in P&N. Where in the media are you seeing this?
On YouTube.

On the tube. You Tube to be precise.

I fully expect the right to seize on this imagery and whip up a frenzy about “Pelosi’s shock troops!!” and “Dems go full fascist on conservatives!!” Just wait for Hannity/Tucker tonight and it will be on a constant loop.

All she is doing is thanking them for their service.
Hannity is the worst kind of scum. I won't comment on Tucker because AFAIK I haven't seen him. I don't watch Fox News, but did catch some clips of Hannity. Disgusting person.

Youtube is not "the media," it's a platform for content.

BTW, I hold Nancy Pelosi in very high regard. Did you see the interview that Leslie Stahl did of her on 60 Minutes Sunday? Up front and on point, she's no liar/prevaricator. Stahl was armed with some prepared javelins (some, WTF ) but Nancy parried them readily and without animosity.

Trust me. Tucker is just as scummy as Hannity. It's a competition. They continuously feed the outrage, hate cycle. There are never enough outrages committed by liberals, and black people.

Find and watch the livestreams from that day (conveniently made by the right-wingers and that are now available permanently online and helpful to the FBI most definitely).

Most of those Capitol morons are not going to fight in any "civil war". They'll cut and run at the first inkling of any real hostilities. There were some bad dudes there that day, from what I saw they were out front throwing shit at the cops under the balcony and they were the ones that dragged the two cops down (and killed them, if they were the same ones). These are the crew listed separately on the FBI site for violence against the Capitol police. That was some truly nasty shit.

But the inside Capitol crew? What a bunch of moronic clowns (other than a few like the two ziptie guys, which were still morons, just more serious ones.) Not saying they didn't do damage or wouldn't have injured/harrassed/taken hostage the congress critters if they'd been there, and any mob is dangerous. But those nitwits not only filmed themselves (mostly maskless) but at least a couple mentioned names. They reminded me of drunk football fans, talking tough but if real shit broke out they'd run asap. Just watch Insurrection Barbie's video for a good example. If those are the bad guys in a civil war, not really a concern.

My only real concern is supremacists and Trump worshippers in the armed forces, not these yeehawdists.

Seeing multiple reports, including a claim from Rep Mikie Sherril, she is a veteran and former federal prosecutor, that multiple R Reps led suspicious looking tours on January 5th, what they are suspecting to be reconnaissance missions on January 5th to coup members.
