Pelosi Staff on last nights CNN Special "they take us hostage?, yea, I think"

It was chilling when the two women who worked for the Speaker were recounting their 1/6 experience. Hiding behind a closed door and hoping that it would protect them after the exterior doors had already been breached. The insurrectionist hauntingly calling out "Nancy, where are you".

One of them said while they were talking that day while hoping the door would hold, "They take us hostage, right?" the other said "yea, I think?" and Republicans are calling it a regular tourism day. Listening to them last night, I felt terrible. They were hoping that if found they would be taken hostage as it sounded better than the alternative. let that set in, they were hoping to be taken hostage..... We failed them. Anyone who was in the building that day needs to go to jail to ensure this never happens again. If there are not consequences, it will..... This is the definition of Domestic Terrorism. Terrorists need to be treated as such. Investigate, Charge, Hold trials, Convict, Jail and set the example so this does not happen again.

10. "Nt" means "no text" which is a kindness to those just reading the thread headers

To alert them that clicking on the header will divulge no further comment.

19. When I was a 'net-noob

someone posted "QFT" ( "quoted for truth" ) at me.

I thought it meant "quit f$@%ing talking."

(Fortunately I asked for a clarification rather than flying off the handle.)

I can't even begin to imagine the horror these people went through. I bet many of them suffered PTSD.

4. But these people have been re-victimized on the daily by the insurrectionists and their media

Sympathizers.

It it pathetic. The AG should be doing everything to protect these innocent people just trying to go to work everyday. I wonder what heís doing instead?

9. CNN doesn't report an assault on a person in 2-sided way. "Oh, the guy just wanted to be friendly"


It reminds me of attack lawyers dragging a woman rape victim's relationships through the mud and blaming her for wearing a skirt above the knee.

20. exactly! they could send 1,000 people to jail and it wouldn't deter donnie from doing it again.

unless and until big names go to jail, they'll just figure there's an endless stream of suckers willing to volunteer to be on the front lines.

he's already setting the stage for a coup in august when they're claiming he'll be "reinstalled".

I really want to see just one of these republican traitors and corrupt fatcats convicted and sent to prison. I don't know about holding my breath but, I'll stock up on Jim Beam and beer just in case.

14. The look on Ms Smiths face as she says "yea, I think" really bothers me

Even 6 months later you can see that the alternative of being taken hostage was terrifying. Yet these women go back to work every day. I salute their bravery.

The GOP needs to have a big light shined on them for their negligence in upholding the law.

25. Don't forget the bleach injection

Prior to sticking the lightbulb up your ass. You will be healthy as a mule overnight. I am willing to bet when tRump went to Walter Reed with Covid, they did not shove a lightbulb up his ass and give him a bleach injection. That treatment was for the littles.

How messed up upstairs many of them seem. Mass lunacy.

When you look at Trump and hear him slur some words out and think....thatís what I want in a Leader something is very wrong in your brain.

33. And what really kills me is that the MAGAts constantly post about Biden being "incoherent"

and slurring and having dementia.

It's patently obvious the difference between his speaking ability and Trump's that Trump's is incoherent, unfocused, childish, and oft times makes one wonder if he has dementia or other issue. It's so obvious! To say otherwise is like arguing that the sky is purely fictional.

How do you argue with people who can't even agree that something that is real is actually real?

It's a level of delusion that used to be reserved only for the religious fundamentalists who stayed on the margins with their crap so that we never had to deal with it. When they had their little pretend world off on their own they were harmless; now they're half the senate and half the house and have their own major network news. Scary.

32. I am against the death penalty, except for terrorism - this requires a Game of Thrones response.

or the kind of response one could have expected from a Japanese Shogun or Emperor, or the kings of old and ancient days. But on the other hand, the death penalty is still pretty immoral. I'd like to see them all have their citizenship revoked and kicked out of the country - and leave the problem of where to go up to them. Like those assholes say to liberals all the goddamn time, "Love it or leave it". Shitstains. Since they're also pretty much all racists shitbags, let them not only be punished normally, but let them feel the punishment of finding out what it's like to be a demographic that they hate: a refugee, begging for help.

The fact that the capitol hallways didn't run red with the blood of the insurrectionists speaks well to the superior morality of the non-insurrectionists (and also, sadly, speaks even more strongly about the massive racism of our nation - if those had been African-Americans or Muslims or "the gays", they *would* have been slaughtered). In almost any earlier time, it would have been a bloodbath and it would have been justified.
