The Stupid Coup: “We We Only Following Orders!”

Well, this is interesting:

Leaked Texts: Jan. 6 Organizers Say They Were ‘Following POTUS’ Lead’

Rally planners coordinated closely with the White House before Jan. 6 and readied a dinner party while the Capitol was under siege, according to leaked group text messages obtained by Rolling Stone…

…Two sources who were involved in planning the Ellipse rally previously told Rolling Stone they had extensive interactions with members of Trump’s team, including former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows. The text messages provide a deeper understanding of what that cooperation entailed, including an in-person meeting at the White House. Rally organizers also described working with Trump’s team to announce the event, promote it, and grant access to VIP guests. A spokesperson for the former president did not respond to a request for comment on the record.

Group chats also provided a glimpse of tensions between rally planners. And the conversations showed how their core group reacted to the chaos that erupted that day in real time, including [Amy Kremer, a conservative activist who organized a major pro-Trump rally near the White House that preceded the violence] rejecting calls to hold a press conference denouncing the violence.

Rolling Stone actually had/have the phones, so they even have time stamps. This is pretty damning evidence.

UPDATE 1: Tiger Beat on the Potomac sums up the story thusly:

IT’S ALWAYS THE GROUP TEXTS — The organizers of the Jan. 6 “Stop the Steal” rally dined on charcuterie and drank Champagne as the deadly Capitol insurrection raged for hours after the rally, Hunter Walker reports in a big new Rolling Stone story. He got his hands on the organizers’ group text messages, which reveal that the rally’s planning included an in-person meeting at the White House and “working with Trump’s team to announce the event, promote it, and grant access to VIP guests. “We are following POTUS’ lead,” one wrote Jan. 1 regarding tweeting about the rally. (A spokesperson for the organizers denied the story’s veracity.)

    Nothing will happen.

    If only there were some sort of smoking gun – a smoking capital building, if you will.

    I wonder what it would take to get the press on the side of the American people. I mean, we of the great unwashed don’t have much to offer anymore, and what little is left, is trickling up quickly, but perhaps if we gently massage their delicate egos just a bit more, they’ll acknowledge reality.

    I kid. Narcissistic sociopaths gonna narcissistic sociopath.

    Kewl. They granted access to VIP guests. I assume that includes the QAnon Shamon, the rebel flag-waver, the guy with his feet on Nancy Pelosi’s desk and of course all of the shit smearers. Magnifique.

    There’s gotta be at least one of the people on the inside that will pull their head out of TFG’s ass long enough to realize that throwing fucking everyone under the bus is all he knows how to do.

    This terrifies me, because it will happen all over again — with greater success for the seditionists and Trump — in 2025.
