Slowly but slowly some of the defendants are getting their time in jail and others are getting fined….all that is good news but some of the news is disturbing on another front.
You know how the Dems are going on about the protest and yet not all Dems think it was a bad idea.
More than a quarter of Republicans now approve of the Capitol riot, according to a new poll—and, puzzlingly, almost a fifth of Democrats agree. “Do you approve or disapprove of the Trump supporters taking over the Capitol building in Washington, DC on January 6th, 2021 to stop Congressional proceedings?” the Economist/YouGov poll asked 1,500 American adults, Some 27% of Republicans, and 19% of Democrats, said they either “strongly” or “somewhat” approve. The poll also found that 54% of Republicans believe “people participated in a legitimate public discourse” on Jan. 6, compared to 21% of Democrats, the Hill reports.
Some 71% of Democrats, and 27% of Republicans thought “people participated in a violent insurrection” was a more fitting description of the day’s events. Among Democrats, 90% thought former President Trump had at least some responsibility for the riot, while 43% of Republicans—and 52% of Trump supporters—thought he had none whatsoever. The poll also found that 42% of Americans, including 61% of Republicans, approved of House Speaker Kevin McCarthy’s decision to release tens of thousands of hours of Jan. 6 footage to Tucker Carlson, the Guardian reports.
More result from the poll….Biden, Ukraine, etc….
The poll was taken between March 11 and March 14. Some 34% of respondents, including 63% of Republicans, said they wanted Trump to run for president in 2024. Only 26%, including 45% of Democrats, wanted President Biden to seek a second term. The numerous other issues pollsters addressed included aid for Ukraine. Some 77% supported sending the country food and medical assistance, 53% supporting sending tanks, 44% were in favor of sending fighter jets, and 26% were in favor of sending US troops.
These results are very disturbing….19% of the Dems agreed with 06 January riot….seriously?
Those are not Dems they are probably so-called ‘centrist’ that think the center is the place to be.
I have been saying that Dens were not much better than the GOP….this does not change my mind in the least.
Does anyone else see a disturbing issue here?

This sounds like the situation over here. Faced with the most corrupt government in modern British history, there is still almost 40% of the electorate who think the Conservatives are doing a ‘good job of running the country’. It seems that your ‘Can’t fix stupid’ has crossed The Atlantic, chuq.
Best wishes, Pete.
Stupid seems to be sweeping the globe….sadly chuq
The disturbing issue I see is that Americans are tired of all the political wrangling and bullshit in Washington and they want a change and they don’t care what kind of change it is as long as it is simply a change …a dangerous place to be — that is how Hitler ended up as supreme asswad in Germany in the 1940s.
Americans are becoming more stupid by the year. chuq
I think it graphically illustrates that any given ideology, be it a political party or a religion, that there are levels of believers.. and that “loyalty” exists only to the level any believer thinks their belief is being served. It’s one reason we have Liberal Conservatives and Conservative Liberals… and centrism is not in vogue anymore.
Political co-operation died decades ago…we still pretend that there is a way to work together….chuq
There are always a few Judases ….
20% is more than a few. chuq
I hope the powers that be keep in mind that the best deterrent to the bite of the cobra is to cut off its head…. Let today be the start of the perp walks for the instigator-in-chief!
I am still waiting for that walk…..hopefully we will not have to wait too long. chuq
