I'm amused by the desperation, but there were definitely people at the Capitol who genuinely wanted things to succeed. They wanted to hold Congress members prisoner until the politicians betrayed their oaths... and let's be honest, at least a few of those insurrectionists would have roughed up or even killed politicians if they'd had their way.A Three Percenter in jail for his part in the insurrection has penned a letter claiming the legal defense that the attack on the Capitol was a parody.
The material obtained by ProPublica sheds light on the radicalization of a Jan. 6 defendant whom prosecutors have characterized as a “serious danger ... not only to his family and Congress, but to the entire system of justice.”www.propublica.org
In other words, if it was a “real” insurrection, it would have succeeded?
