"No! That's not how you do it!" - antifa Commie
In the comments under our post When the masks come off, regarding the Capitol Gang, seen above past January 6th, E. H. Hail (of the "Hail to You" blog added a good point:
If it were an "insurrection," and especially given the ubiquity of masks, you'd think many would wear masks. (It doesn't hurt that it's literally the law to wear them outdoors, under a theoretical $1000 penalty as ordered by the typical big-blue-machine DC local government). But almost none were wearing masks.I was going to put this into my own words, but when I went back to Mr. Hail's comment, I saw that this is the same way I'd have put it. There was no big plan to take over the Capitol ahead of time. Had there been, the idea of masking up would have been brought up by someone - the timing, as I wrote, would have been just perfect. Or, does the left just think those who don't have the very same ideas as they do and comply with the same politicians they do are just stupid?
Clearly they did not think they were doing anything illegal, or even near the borderline of illegality, or they'd have taken basic steps to conceal their faces. Many were probably against masks on principle, others may have believed 'Covid' was kind of a giant scam to get Trump, others just didn't care and didn't think they were comfortable/breathable for vigorous activity such as marching and protesting.
This is a different angle to the No Masks at Capitol Protest observation than the one you discuss here because it shows the protestors' motivations; No Masks = No Insurrection. (As if this point even has to be proven, but that is good proof of intent.)
I don't really think that. The idea that there was an INSURRECTION AGAINST THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is just such a blatant lie. This point is another one that helps all Americans with common sense see this blatant lying.
