Proud Boys descended into dysfunction and finger-pointing as members were arrested in US Capitol rio

Source: CNN

Washington (CNN)A private Proud Boys audio chat that was made public Tuesday shows how the right-wing group fell into dysfunction and finger-pointing as its members got arrested after the US Capitol riot.

Defense attorneys for Ethan Nordean, a leader of the Proud Boys in Washington state, released a rough transcript of the audio messages in a court filing. The FBI, which had seized Nordean's cell phone, found the audio clips on the Telegram app and produced the transcript. Prosecutors gave it to Nordean's lawyers as part of their legal obligations to turn over evidence to criminal defendants.

"We are f--ked...they are coming for us," one member said, according to court filings, which say the chat happened on February 1 as the national manhunt for Capitol rioters ramped up.

Another member said that the situation "completely f--king crashes and burns on us." The same person went on to criticize other Proud Boys who handled communications and security on January 6, saying, "I mean, f--k, 'tifa looks like professionals compared to us," referring to Antifa.

... snip ...

One member was shocked by the potential prison sentences for people convicted of the most serious offenses related to January 6. They said: "Twenty goddam years? Man, no matter what we do they're going to throw the f--king book at us." Other members discussed federal conviction rates and prison terms, and suggested that the best option might be to plead guilty.

15. +1,000 You are totally correct. Of course when the reTHUG Fascist Insurrectionist Cultists

us the term "Antifa" they conveniently (for them) leave out the facts.

2. I'd be amazed if there wasn't also talk of how ticked they were that IQ45 wasn't pardoning them all

I'm sure these dunces expected to succeed in stopping the certification, and absent that, pardons from TFG would surely be forthcoming.

I relish their disillusionment, though I'm sure it was only temporary and they went right back to worshipping the Orange Menace that hung them out to dry cause they're a bunch of dipshits.

3. What "Loyalty" Gets Ya

Hell, Congressional Republicans and Trump won't even admit these people are their supporters. How you remain loyal to a party that has basically thrown you under the bus and not even given you the slightest point of recognition is beyond my understanding. But that's how the Republican Party works. They talk up their base then treat them some cheap hired help at their earliest convenience.

24. These Dunces are brainwashed

By a media machine that pumps shhit into their brains. We all are subjected to it, but we all have different triggers and keywords that rile us up. They, (the media and their overlords) know this and use both sides BS for maximum effect by utilizing these words and phrases. Think about how many headlines use a violent verb, or action, for a non violent thing. Trump hits back at Biden for...., Biden slams Trump for... Neither of them hit each other or had any physical contact, so those statements are factually inaccurate at best. But I think they are used intentionally to get a reaction.

5. They thought Trump would have their backs?



Every activity in the world runs on expertise, judgment, risk assessment, reasoning, knowledge, among other things. I'm thinking these individuals and organizations were more than a few loaves short and hadn't a clue of what might go wrong for their perceived destiny and master plan.

Trump would remain in office, and they would all be given medals in the Oval Office and interviews on Fox News.

20. Yes, I wonder what these dregs of society fantasized about

I'm certain they believe they'd be making the right wing talk show circuit....perhaps a book deal too.

And certainly adulation by former guy.

25. Armed cosplay in the woods didn't lead to anything but Federal charges

because it turns out they had nothing to be proud of, after all.

I've waited decades for these swaggering idiots to appear on the FBI's radar, the whole time wasted spying on the Quakers and Raging Grannies (not making this up) because anyone left of center scares the hell out of rich men who don't want to pay taxes.

Let's hope this keeps up for a while.

26. These dangerous fools along with the Oath Keepers, 3 Percenters, the Boogaloo crowd, and Ammon

Bundy's new guerilla strike force are all being used as tools by the good folks who finance The Heritage Foundation, the Center for National Policy, Project Blitz and other subversive Right Wing front groups.

It is very important to realize the Militia gangs are cannon fodder to distract us from more covert and insidious actions within and without state and national government. Neither is this about the GOP as such. The people calling the shots, who tell McConnell and the others what rhetoric to spout and which bills to approve reside outside the spotlight. Koch, Mercer, and other like minded oligarchs have a well orchestrated plan running.
