Rick Wilson: The 'Oh Fuck' Moment Is Finally Here for Trump's Enablers

The ‘Oh Fuck’ Moment Is Finally Here for Trump’s Enablers
AMERICA’S SADDAM
opinion
via REUTERS
His mob wasn’t there to find evidence of fraud, or force legislators to listen to their grievances; they were there for the lulz. They were there because Trump had sent them.
Rick Wilson, Editor-at-Large
Published Jan. 07, 2021 5:05AM ET


Donald Trump's violent insurrectionist forces stormed the U.S. Capitol yesterday and, even after five long years of Trump’s increasingly obvious combination of evil and insanity, the disgust America felt at seeing his MAGA mayhem crew ransack the Capitol like redneck Visigoths was unexpectedly powerful.

As an anthropologist of the shittiest human being on the planet, a scholar of all Trump’s pathologies, a plumber in the vast deeps of his fuckwit necromancy, I should be past shock, but even I was appalled by not only the order to march on the Capitol spitting from his blubbery lips but by the organized teams of rioters who then invaded the House and Senate.

snip//

The dark, spreading cancer at the center of this crisis is Donald Trump. Like all cancers, he's determined, persistent, and remorseless when it comes to destroying his host. There is no other analogy that truly fits this moment. The chaos and attention he craves is playing out on the streets with violent results.

Suddenly, Washington looks less like the shining city on the hill, the seat of the world's longest-running and most prosperous representative democracy, and more like a Third World capital in flames. And Trump’s base, mindless and grunting their “but muh fraud” mantra, did what a dictator’s mob does: pointed at a target, they let their sick momentum carry them where it will.

We must be clear about who these people are, what they want, and the necessity of stopping them.

These are not patriots; they’re anarchists. They're insurrectionists, not conservatives. They are shock troops from America's Saddam. Organized in a thousand Facebook groups and with a million bad ideas transmitted to their brains from Fox, OAN, Newsmax, and QAnon, we’re fortunate as a nation in only one respect—they’re not very good at revolution.

63. In the moment, I was thinking what a pity it was that the surroundings were so historic,

and not to put too fine a point on it, but sacred, at least to a democratic state. I was momentarily daydreaming about how the mood of the crowd might change if an Apache gunship came streaking down the Mall. That 30mm rotary cannon is more than impressive.

Of course it would never happen, and we should all be hoping fervently in never gets even close to that moment...but it would surely never need to happen twice.

It's a f'ing good thing that this shitshow has only 2 more weeks to play itself out. Not enough time for those fuckwits to get worked up enough to think that it's time to water the tree of liberty.

21. In other words, it will happen again in short order.

Government isn’t going to move on this, not seriously. A few of the traitors in the Capitol Building will be arrested and possibly brought to trial (although I wouldn’t count on it). Maybe a cop or two will be placed on admin leave with pay pending investigation -- and then restored to duty when no one is paying attention any longer. The cleanup crews will take care of the possibly literal shit left behind by the monkeys and apes with their nazi and KKK tattoos brandishing Trump flags and throwing American flags to the ground. And then you will hear the birds singing again and see the pedestrians walking about to their jobs, and the muted anti-vaxxer protests.

Nothing to see here, folks, so move along.

And nothing will happen -- until a smarter crew of simian subhuman apes in MAGA hats plan something more dramatic, more killing.

Hey, these are white guys and so is law enforcement. There’s a bond, y’know bro’?

27. Stop underestimating Biden-Harris

I hate to read comments like "nothing will happen to them". BS. Biden and Harris know what MUST be done. They saw the Capital Police posing for selfies, I guarantee you they put a total revamp high on their list. All Capital Police will have more screenings done on them by FBI, etc. The leadership will change. Any Trump loyalists will be forced to resign and replaced by young officers trained by the new leadership.

Biden and Harris will use everything at their disposal from DOJ to track down everyone who appears on camera breaking laws yesterday. Garland will prosecute them fully. The IRS will step in to look for every possible tax issue. I bet you that drunk posing at Pelosi's desk will have his life destroyed even if we do not hear about it.

Too many mistake Biden and Harris's calm tone for weakness. I guarantee they will come in loaded for bear and while it may be behind the scenes, completely root out and destroy everything Trump they possibly can. Having Congress will only ramp that up even more than it would have been.

For one, a spine, and two, a conscience. They lack both. The only fuck moment they may have have had was, oh fuck, maybe I need to cover my ass. Why isn’t ghouliani in handcuffs. He was rallying the maggots to go into combat. He used the word COMBAT. Cancer ivanka was promoting their behavior on Twitter, she should be in cuffs too. If The last 4 years are any indication of what will transpire in the next couple days is a whole big nothing. New crimes and atrocities will be committed by the crime family, covering over yesterday’s coup, the media whores will be all over the next big distraction. The biggest consequence will be Twitters’ 12 hour trump ban.

Lindsey Graham finally cried uncle and he has neither of those things.

All it really takes is the realization that the wheels on the GOP bandwagon are about to come off and action is needed for self-preservation.

Even Trump had a bit of an "oh fuck" moment when he issued a written pledge to the orderly transfer of power. Without that he was looking down the barrel of a mass exodus of numerous high level officials in his administration who had their own "oh fuck" moments and they still may if Trump's cheese slides farther off his cracker.

Sure, there were a lot of randoms just running around causing mayhem, but a the actions of a core bunch were too well equipped and well orchestrated to be incidental. There was a plan; there were specific goals. Stealing the ballots and taking prisoners were obviously items on the checklist.

If it wasn't Prince, it was someone similar with the right intel and training to set it up. It's horrifying.

57. They *are* conservatives, Rick

American conservatism has been defined for decades by its thought leaders on talk radio and Fox. The job of educated right-wingers is not to define and develop conservative ideology, but to devise complex formalizations and justifications of what conservatives learn each day from their favorite radio hosts.

The ideology you adhere to is not modern American conservatism. You can argue who left whom, but at the end of the day, conservatism is what the bulk of the conservative movement believes, and that happens to be Trump.
