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 (Disclose.tv):
"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"
