Told you so.

Attempted putsch by fascists in the Capitol, incited by Trump. This has been building since before his inauguration. Somehow I doubt the folks here who disagreed with me back then will use this opportunity to reassess their skills of character evaluation. I'd like to imagine you're capable of humility, but I don't really know that you're up to the task. Chances are these days you're all wrapped up in a comfort blanket of conspiracy theories. Here's hoping you all know better than that somewhere, that there's a core of truth in your mind.

And yeah, this does come across as condescending. Shame about that.

Man, what happened to the police?

When there was a BLM protest, the cops practically spawned out of thin air Elder Scrolls style and made thousands of arrests. This day? They couldn't stop a jaywalker!

I can't say I'm surprised. All signs pointed to this. Trump outright said he wouldn't accept the result of the election if he lost, and refused to peacefully transition power.

^Yeah. It definitely seems like Twitter was trying to preserve his account as evidence for an eventual court case, but they couldn't wait any longer once he actually started a coup attempt.

Sure it took about 5-6 years before they finally decided "Maybe we SHOULD ban white supremacists and the others flouting the rules." but hey, better late than never, right?

^They were banning other accounts sharing the exact same info, just not Herr Leader himself.

This guy complaining that this is an echo chamber after a bunch of people in an echo chamber were persuaded with no evidence that the election was fraudulent and they should stage a coup.

^^If this place was really an echo chamber, this thread wouldn't have been posted here, 'cause there wouldn't be anyone it's addressed to here.
