Marketing super-jenious Hair Füror has dubbed the Stupid Coup to be J6 (he reportedly didn’t like it being called 1-6 because it reminded him of 9-11) and thus was born the rally “Justice for J6,” which sounds like it is turning into quite the merde show:
The extremist forums that cheered on the Jan. 6 Capitol attack have soured on the planned Saturday rally in Washington, insisting without evidence that the event is a secret government plot to arrest more people involved in the riot…
…Those posting on these forums say they largely believe the event to be a setup for a “false flag” event or “honeypot,” in which they’ll be entrapped and coerced to commit violence by federal agents.
Yup: the conspiracy theorists think it’s a conspiracy, and Eiron’s work week thus concludes. But I digest…
And of course Hair Füror hisself is now running away from it because it looks like it will not be well attended:
Trump also characterized the planned Sept. 18 rally at the U.S. Capitol as a “setup” meant to denigrate Republican voters regardless of what transpires.
“On Saturday, that’s a setup,” Trump said, referring to the rally. “If people don’t show up they’ll say, ‘Oh, it’s a lack of spirit.’ And if people do show up they’ll be harassed.”
Regrets were RSVP’ed already from cereal enthusiasts Proud Boys, and Reps. Madison Cawthorn (R-Eagles Nest Gift Shoppe) and others:
So far, the only guest speakers Braynard has announced are clients of his who are running against sitting GOP members of Congress who voted to impeach Trump. And the permit granted for the rally allows it to be no larger than 700 people, according to a person who was briefed on the matter but spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss confidential details.
“I don’t know what it is,” Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, said when asked about the event.
Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley, who along with Cruz led the Jan. 6 objections to Biden’s certification, also dismissed the idea.
“I’m not going,” Hawley said. “I’m not following it at all.”
Sen. Ron Johnson, a Wisconsin Republican, has voiced sympathy for those charged in connection with the Jan. 6 attack. But Johnson, who said he would not be attending Saturday’s event, offered some advice to those who are.
“Don’t break any laws whatsoever.”
Oh, and in case anyone doesn’t know, the event is being organized by a paid staffer of the Stable Jenius, Matt Braynard. Braynard is now instructing the would-be attendees to NOT wear any MAGA swag, saying that that anyone who violates this order “will be assumed to be an infiltrator.”
