“Hands up, don’t nuke.” – Dana Loesch
The January 6th shoving match on Capitol Hill has been described by a number fear-inducing adjectives. Here are just a few examples;
- Politifact: “Yes, Jan. 6 Capitol assault was an ‘armed insurrection’”
- NPR: “Capitol Insurrection Updates”
- Chou Bia-Dung: “Worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War” (Reported by NY Post).
- Nancy Pelosi: “… overturn the Constitution of the United States of America” (reported by the reliable lapdog PMSNBC).
I’m sure you get the picture.
But just to be sure I understand this correctly;
Tens of thousands of President Trump supporters peacefully marched from the White House to Capitol Hill. From there, a few hundred, as Dana Loesch so eruditely put it, a crowd mostly made up of “a guy dressed like a Burning Man reject in a buffalo head and his motley crew of Red Dawn LARPers almost overthrew the entire government…”
For good measure, Loesch added, ” but you can’t own a semi-auto because the mighty government will nuke you into next week?”
Hands up don’t nuke

Keep in mind, the media initially claimed that Capitol Hill Police Officer Brian Sicknick was killed.
First claiming that the officer was killed by a strike to the head with a fire extinguisher… then claiming that his death was due to inhaling bear repellent spray.
But as reported by the AP (via Yahoo News), Officer Sicknick actually died a natural death by way of a stroke.
As a matter of fact, the only person to die that day was US Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt, who was shot in the chest by a still unnamed law enforcement officer (video below).
Keep in mind that no one of the break-away crowd was armed. Not even as much as a .22 caliber single-shot derringer.
But wait… a few hundred people actually guilty of little more than trespassing and vandalism of federal property (specifically, the US Capitol Building), these people are part of an “armed insurrection”; “the worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War”; and party to those seeking to “overturn the Constitution of the United States of America”?
But according to Chairman Chou, the only way to be a real threat, one needs F-15s and nukes.
Precisely. Biden’s mockery of the citizenry – you think you can threaten the US Govt with guns? You need F-15s and nukes for that – shows how moronic is the depiction of a few hundred MAGA protesters as a threat to the stability of history’s most militarized and armed government. https://t.co/29AmoWCITt

Hey, speaking of Dana Loesch, here’s an interesting tidbit from her website;
So essentially Biden just said that if you ever hope to hold a tyrannical government accountable you’d better have nukes and jets otherwise you’ll be nuked and bombed. And they called Trump the “fascist.”
BIDEN: “Those who say the blood of Patriots, you know, and all the stuff about how we’re gonna have to move against the government.”
“If you think you need to have weapons to take on the government, you need F-15s and maybe some nuclear weapons.”pic.twitter.com/WVHUffpphP
