Washington Spring

Tweet (Hu Xijin 胡锡进):

"They are mobs, truly. But if Washington D.C. is capital city of a developing country, the American media outlets will definitely give the Capitol riots a name: Washington Spring." 

It is funny how the real coup passes by unnoticed, as cutting off the communication capabilities of the sitting President is considered normal, even beneficial:  tweet (Bronze Age Pervert) (also):
"Has Trump been able to get any message out for the last few hours? What is it called when the head of a government's line of communications are cut off to the outside world?"
Tweet (Antonio García Martínez) (the political power granted to unelected persons and corporations, without any discussion at all, remains mind-boggling):
"Every real, metaphorical or cinematic coup attempt has the attack on the radio station. 

Now Zuck just flips the switch."
The larper coup:  tweet (Ben Sexsmith) (tweet seems to have gone missing) (also) (also):
"The aesthetics of this riot are incredible. It's like the Storming of the Bastille as recreated by the cast National Lampoon's Animal House. These photos will outlive us all."
Tweet (
"JUST IN - Cell phone jammers activated near the White House."
Tweet (𝙂𝙚𝙣𝙞𝙚):
"Every bank and corporation that released statements endorsing the BLM riots is now releasing statements condemning the storming of the Capitol today."
Tweet (Qiao Collective):
"Americans grow the hell up challenge"

"Not The Onion: Maduro's Venezuela Condemns Capitol Violence, Urges "Calm & Stability"" (Durden).  Suggesting Venezuela isn't entitled to this opinion is classic Assholian imperialism, part of the general inability to notice the ironies.  Also, Guido!

"And now, a short message from our masters".

Tweet (Ali Gharib):
"Has anyone tried reaching out to Foundation for Defense of Democracies to see if they will report for duty at Capitol Hill?"
Tweet (Tom Green):
"I feel like when historians look back at this day they are gonna laugh"
