Do you think there will be an attack on the Capitol on March 4?

Asked by smudges (3049points) 1 month ago

U.S. Capitol Police officials said they have “obtained intelligence that shows a possible plot to breach the Capitol by an identified militia group on Thursday, March 4”, the date that far-right conspiracy theorists believe Trump will return to power. The information is being taken seriously.

So do you think an attack or attempt will occur?

But the pot will still be simmering.

Proud Boys and Oath Keepers want to kill all the Democrats they can and put “Tangerine make-up” in the White House. Overthrow of the government and Trump hopes they do . . . . .

They will attack somewhere else.

Maybe the Archives and steal the Declaration of Independence.

Maybe the White House.

You have to figure that the Oath Boys are not stupid. If they see that the Capitol is unreachable, they will go for a secondary target.

The fact that the rebellion in January garnered the requisite attention of Federal agencies along with the clearly required retribution for violent stupidity, I believe we will be subjected this time to noise alone.

Congress has suspended sessions for the day so somebody is taking it seriously.

Actually, the only group I saw mentioned by name was the Three Percenters.

I tend to think something will happen somewhere, even if it’s just protests in major cities.

No. At this point, they will refocus on Biden’s State Of The Union address.

I doubt it.
Right wingers are cowards outside of large groups, and without the cover of crowds of trumpists like on Jan 6th, they will be too scared to try anything, especially considering that unlike in January, they would face actual opposition, and not just a handful of Capitol Cops, many of whom actually helped them.

@elbanditoroso “You have to figure that the Oath Boys are not stupid.
– Do I? How do you figure?

Or did you just mean that the authorities ought to be ready for a potential attack elsewhere, too?

No, I don’t think there will.

It never happened. Now the conspiracy theorists are revamping their theories and conspiracies.
