A helpful tool I borrowed from a friend:

"Huge numbers of our population believe in a complete alternate reality. Alternate facts as it were. But just as intensely as I believe they are deluded, they think I am the one who is deluded. Maybe I am. So how can I be confident in my perception? It can be quite difficult.

I have found when in times of political confusion, particularly when emotions are running high and creating tunnel vision, the presence of a n-a-z-i can be an extremely helpful indicator.

If I am attending a local demonstration or event and I see n-a-z-i, neo-n-a-z-i, casual n-a-z-i, master race n-a-z-i, or the latest-whatever-uber-mythology-n-a-z-i, I figure out which side they are on. And if they are on my side of the demonstration? I am on the wrong side.

It is tough to argue moral equivalence when I am standing next to a N-a-z-i.

Look to my right. Is there a guy wearing a "6MWE" (6 million wasnt enough) t-shirt? I am on the wrong side.

Look to my left. If that guy is wearing a "Camp Auschwitz" t-shirt? Wrong side.

Are speakers being applauded for referring to things that Hitler got right? Wrong side.

Team-spirit face paint and hat with animal horns? This is actually an unclear indicator that could mean anything, but safest to keep my distance from that guy anyway, even at a football game.

However, I can always, always, always rely on the presence of a n-a-z-i as a guiding light through a fog of disinformation.

Some things are relative, and politics can absolutely have its opposing sides and grey areas. But evil and good are absolute. 

So, just look for the n-a-z-i, and make your own decisions."

Agreed, but in the name of accuracy, there is a minor exception that doesn't diminish the validity of the litmus test proposed above.

Although the Proud Boys were a prominent group involved in the Capitol riot, that 6MWE "proud boy" was not photographed at this event: https://forward.com/fast-forward/461761/fact-check-the-6-million-wasnt-enough-shirt-wasnt-from-the-capitol-siege.
See attached, the same photo published on the ADL site back on December 24th
On the other hand, that Camp Auschwitz guy was there, indeed, alongside other * and QAnon nutjobs.

We fought them before, we'll fight them again. Nazi-ism is a scourge. The one thing about all of this turmoil (IMHO) is that they have force people to choose sides. For me, its pretty simple. I'm a human being. These guys are not.

If these ignorant guys take their arms could be a good thing in some way.

Out of the streets for a long long time in the USA (or dead). The National Guard and the Police are prepared now. No jokes at this time.

Honestly, give their level of competence shown so far, just take the warning labels off hot coffee and chainsaws, and this problem will go away soon enough.

edit to add: There is a report (no longer able to substantiate it) that a post on Parler asked people to list their names, addresses, and "crimes" they may have committed so that DJT could pardon them later.

And they did!!!!

Not sure it's real, but it could be a funny prank, indeed. Here is the alleged post:



But please be aware that there are some obviously fake letters attributed either to Trump or Pelosi circulating on the internet. So this one could easily be fake too.

Sounds like an alien undercover action. Martians are infiltrated in Twitter.

Watching all the insanity going on, particularly at the height of a pandemic, is alarming and depressing.

Good advice and this gave me a well needed laugh, so thanks for that!  ;D ;D ;D

This is the Beeb's Reality Check, which is more or less what I'm seeing elsewhere, but I'm probably in a media 'echo chamber':

As I understand it it now goes for Trial at the Senate. It seems the impeachment has had the effect of shutting the clown up for a while....not sure if it will achieve much more than that.

Under Trump, the winning just doesn't stop.

First president to be impeached twice!  (hopefully also the first to be convicted but I doubt the senate will do their job).

Most members of their own party to vote for impeachment!

More Coronavirus deaths than any other country worldwide!

More indictments than any other presidential administration!  Including beating Nixon in less than one year!

First President since Herbert Hoover during the Great Depression to preside over a net loss of jobs!

First time to have the Capitol overrun since the British burned it in 1812!

So much winning and so many firsts!  The list goes on and on!

The one I am really hoping for is: first former President to spend the rest of their life in jail!  But we will see.  If it looks like Trump will spend any significant time in jail I expect he will defect to Russia or some other country with no extradition treaty.  He might even do it next week - on Jan. 19th he could easily take Air Force One directly to Moscow and stay.  Then he could set up an alternative government in exile and bilk his followers to plan for his return.  But I think he will assume he can continue to cheat the system and we will be stuck with him for a while.  Without twitter and if the media starts ignoring him he should fade into an ignominious oblivion, hopefully soon.  Provided his minions don't stage a successful coup during the next few days...

Blocking all his social media accounts also helped shut him up.

I thought I saw a news report that said the Senate voted to impeach, but I could be wrong. I was watching House debates yesterday afternoon, and the NBC logo said Live, but the House had already voted to impeach. I'm watching NBC News on Roku, so...

Wishful thinking, unfortunately.  It has now gone to the senate to decide, but slimeball McConnell will not reconvene until the 19th at the earliest with no votes taken until after the inauguration.

Nothing will happen! at worst he will be stopped to ever enter a presidential election or to perform in politics! when he should go to prison!...having said this it makes me want to spew up watching horrible Pelosi gloating like an old crow and the geriatric Biden is really the most piss poor choice I have ever seen the Democrats come up with!
