Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – The Godfodder edition

Yeah – yeah. I know I was going to take a short break from Freeperville, but…


Let’s make it a short one, anyway – starting with “I sowwy.”


Capitol rioter Garret Miller says he was following Trump’s orders, apologizes to AOC for threat ^ | January 25, 2021 | Dan Mangan

Posted on 1/25/2021, 7:30:00 PM by lowbridge

A Texas man charged with invading the Capitol and threatening Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Monday that he was effectively following then-President Donald Trump’s orders when he joined a mob that stormed Congress on Jan. 6.

Garret Miller also apologized to Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., for writing “Assassinate AOC” in a Twitter post. He said he would be willing to testify to Congress or in a trial about the riot.


MIller is one of dozens of people charged with participating in the riot, which began shortly after Trump held a rally outside the White House, where he urged supporters to pressure Congress to reject the election of Joe Biden as president.

In a statement released by defense attorney Clinton Broden, Miller said he had been motivated by Trump’s false claims about having been cheated out of reelection by ballot fraud and said, “I am ashamed of my comments.”

U.S. could be headed for an era of increased political violence: Hayden Center

“I was in Washington, D.C. on January 6, 2021, because I believed I was following the instructions of former President Trump and he was my president and the commander-in-chief. His statements also had me believing the election was stolen from him,” Miller said.

“Nevertheless, I fully recognize Joe Biden is now the President of the United States and that the election is over. Donald Trump is no longer president and I would not have any reason to continue to follow his lead.”

“While I never intended to harm Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez nor harm any members of the Capitol police force, I recognize that my social media posts were completely inappropriate. They were made at a time when Donald Trump had me believing that an American election was stolen,” he said

This is like those in the USSR under Stalin when they would “spontaneously” shout out how terrible they were and how socialism had saved them.

Nice tagline you have there. Does that mean you’re “antifa”?
And WTF is it with you nitwits and Russia, anyway?
For the last four years you’ve been praising The Darnold for fellating Vladimir Putin, a KGB tool who murdered and lied his way to the top, but when you think it makes sense (it doesn’t) you refer to the things he did on a regular basis as bad.
Make up your fucking minds.
To: lowbridge
I smell BS from this one.


That’s the smell of your post.


President Trump never said or suggested any such thing.


He was just joking about “if you don’t fight like hell you’re not going to have a country anymore.”

Also about having the mob go to the Capitol. What a kidder


Perhaps he meant Madonna, or one of the other liberal celebrities, or that play in New York, that suggest violence against President Trump.

He wanted Madonna to go to the Capitol and “fight like hell”? Or a “play in New York”?   That’s quite a commute.

Must have missed that in the transcript.

So he didn’t say that at his hearing? Interesting rationalization. You can stop shooting the messenger now, I think.
To: lowbridge

Seems to me FBI and media are planting evidence. This is the second person who has claimed they were “following Trump’s orders” on Jan 6.

Maybe because it’s only the second one they tracked down and caught? Hmmmm….


We will see this used as evidence in the sham impeachment trial.

I have several friends that are worked up enough, that had they been in Washington on January 6th, I have no doubt they would have participated in the Capitol attack.To a person, not one of them would utter the statements this guy is making. I call BS.

So they would have broken into the Capitol and trashed the National Monument, but wouldn’t have flipped to get a lighter sentence.
Got it.

The Dems will cite his testimony as proof Trump incited the mob. Simple.

  2. He is a Donald Trump supporter. (a)
  3. Wearing a red baseball hat with the words “Make America Great Again,” a backpack a balaclava around his neck while carying an American flag and a Trump flag, he went to the U.S. Capitol building in Washington, D.C., USA on January 6, 2021. That day, Trump’s supporters breached the building while a joint session of Congress was certifying the vote of the Electoral College and affirming Joe Biden‘s victory in the 2020 presidential election. At around 2:36 p.m., he was in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda. On the same day, he tweeted to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, “Assassinate AOC.” (a)

He wrote, “We going to get a hold of (the U.S. Capitol Police officer) and hug his neck with a nice rope.” (a)

  9.

(b)
  10. He is represented by Clinton Broden with Broden & Mickelsen LLP in Dallas.
  11. He takes responsibility for his actions taken on January 6, 2021 on behalf of his support for Trump and wants to move forward and put this behind him, Broden stated on the evening of January 22, 2021. (b)

Garret Miller of Richardson, Texas, was arrested Wednesday after spending the weeks since the riot chatting away online about his actions, including statements threatening the Capitol Police officer who shot one of the rioters, according to court documents.One hair-raising tweet directed at Queens Rep. AOC caught the eye of investigators.

On Jan. 6, shortly after the riot, AOC posted the word “Impeach,” on Twitter.

“Assassinate AOC,” Miller responded, using a now-suspended Twitter handle.

Sounds like a little weasel to me.

Finally, we agree on something!
Lastly, I’ve noted many many many times in the last four years how the “no offensive language” edict at Freeperville has eroded.
Six years ago, a Freeper would have gotten a suspension or an outright ban for posting things like “d**n” or “SOB”.
But of course, lately mods let posters use whatever cuss words they wanted.
Until now :
Reminder: No profanity, no personal attacks, no violence.

Reminder: No profanity, no personal attacks, no violence.

You agreed to this when you signed up for posting privileges.

This means leave off the the cussing and swear words. No f-bombs. No c-words, no sh-words, etc. Not even masked. If in a headline or article you’re preparing to post, bleep it out.

Do not tale the Lord’s name in vain.

Use common courtesy when posting. Do not post insults or personal attacks against your fellow FReepers. Do not engage in flamewars or feuds. If you find yourself falling into one, disengage immediately and move on. You don’t need to have the last word. Do not badger other posters. Do not demand an answer. If someone says stop, stop.

Do not enter onto a thread on a topic you don’t like just to disrupt, rattle cages, poke sticks, insult the regulars, or engage in trolling activities, etc.

Do not attempt to discover or expose a poster’s real life identity.

Do not post threats, threats of violence, death wishes, etc., not even hints of ill will, not even jokingly.

The FBI has no sense of humor.

I hate it when the FBI knocks on my door or serves me a subpoena. Please spare me and maybe yourself from this very unpleasant experience.

To: Jim Robinson

Thank you Jim for posting this. As I had just, 10 minutes ago hit report abuse on yet another article with an F bomb found within.

I don’t know what’s wrong with so many Freepers who don’t seem to care how they violate conservative standards.

“Conservative standards” wins today’s oxymoron competition!

Maybe they are so hardened that when they see vulgarity they don’t even notice it.

Hardened = pissed off because they’re on the losing side of history.

So, they’ve come a knockin?

If so, I was wondering when/how soon that was coming.

Trump’s probably the most publicly foul mouthed president ever, and not by a little bit. I get the feeling that quoting him might not be a good idea now.

So – are the Freeperati going to honour this edict?

  1. Sounds like a lightning-freepathon is called for, to pay for all the costs of dealing with FBI subpoenas.

    Well, unless the FBI just carts off the servers and returns them (checks watch), oh, NEVER?

    1. Well, the Freepathons are pretty much never-ending now. About two weeks go by between the end of one and the beginning of the next one.
