While Hair Füror and his nearly-executed walking termite buffet Mike Pence were making up in the Oval Office promising not to 25th Amendment him, the Capitol Police were briefing House Democrats on three (3!) possible attacks that Vulgarmort’s Orcs (mixed metaphors, I know, I know, but I don’t know what they are called in Harry Potter) have been plotting for the coming days, including one plot to surround the Capitol and murder lawmakers:
The first is a demonstration billed as the “largest armed protest ever to take place on American soil.”
Another is a protest in honor of Ashli Babbitt, the woman killed while trying to climb into the Speaker’s Lobby during Wednesday’s pro-Trump siege of the Capitol.
And another demonstration, which three members said was by far the most concerning plot, would involve insurrectionists forming a perimeter around the Capitol, the White House and the Supreme Court, and then blocking Democrats from entering the Capitol ― perhaps even killing them ― so that Republicans could take control of the government.
But Democrats were offered some practical advice:
When your security detail tells you to get bullet-proof vests, but you know, you can write it off…
More practical advice from Team Evil’s stupidest Orc Leader (which kinda makes it sound like he knows sumpin’):
And/or make them accessories to murder, I suppose, if not insurrection. But it may already be too late for 100+ Coup Klux Klan members of the House.
