Only the Tip of the iceberg

I'm still having a hard time wrapping my head around the events of last week. I wax and wane from anger, sorrow, shock, and disbelief. The level of hatred and depravity from this seditious mob and the individuals who participated is almost incomprehensible.

I am of the opinion that the events of 01.06.21 were far more organized than it looked. Until I am shown otherwise, I think it was intentional. I don't like saying this, but the evidence is pretty convincing. For example, the day before the violence, this happened. From Representative Sherril, (D-NJ):
“We can’t have a democracy if members of Congress are actively helping the president overturn the elections results,” Sherrill said.

“And so not only do I intend to see that the president is removed and never runs for office again and doesn’t have access to classified material, I also intend to see that those members of Congress who abetted him; those members of Congress who had groups coming through the Capitol that I saw on Jan. 5 – a reconnaissance for the next day; those members of Congress that incited this violent crowd; those members of Congress that attempted to help our president undermine our democracy; I’m going to see they are held accountable, and if necessary, ensure that they don’t serve in Congress.”

She was interviewed last night on Maddow, and she made the point why it was so concerning: Covid restrictions.

We also found out that for some reason Rep.Ayanna Pressley’s 'panic buttons" were ripped out of her office -- before the attack.

I hope there is an innocent explanation - however, there is little innocence left.

Most chilling of all is that a walkie-talkie app called Zello hosted the insurrectionists, and some of them were directing actions from a quiet 'undisclosed' location.
Audio and chat logs reveal that at least two insurrectionists who broke into the Capitol on 6 January used Zello, a social media walkie-talkie app that critics say has largely ignored a growing far-right user base.

“We are in the main dome right now,” said a female militia member, speaking on Zello, her voice competing with the cacophony of a clash with Capitol police. “We are rocking it. They’re throwing grenades, they’re frickin’ shooting people with paintballs, but we’re in here.”

“God bless and godspeed. Keep going,” said a male voice from a quiet environment.

“Jess, do your shit,” said another. “This is what we fucking lived up for. Everything we fucking trained for.”
These revelations came after lawyer Seth Abramson wrote this thread. Turns out, the Proud Boys were there ahead of the whipped-up rioters from the hate rally held before that invasion.

The occupant was impeached more times than he won the popular vote, but this isn't over. It won't be over for a while. I want to know how much worse this breach really was. This is just the tip of what happened.
