For those tracking fascist activity, this Telegram channel *used* to be an "official" Proud Boys channel. It went silent in early December but then rebranded itself when #Parler was deplatformed. It is currently extremely active.

CW - antisemitism, homophobia, racism, transphobia, violence, white supremacy, porn...:

The absurdity of the "this is 1776" comment is that in 1776 we were trying to replace a king with democracy, but these insurgents want to replace democracy with a king.

Support this investigation by telling your own Congressional representative that we demand it. Any involved need held to account and removed from office. #Insurrection

Democrats demand investigation of whether Republicans in Congress aided Capitol rioters-

Who's Minding the Store Right Now?

"This isn’t a philosophical question; we’ve spent four years wondering about the roots and motivations of Trumpism. It’s a specific question: Who is in charge right now when the White House has to make a decision?

There are two bitter ironies to the January 6 attempted coup. First, the mob was seeking to overturn an election in order to keep in office a president who manifestly has no interest in performing the job. Second, the riot seems to have accelerated rather than prevented the weakening of Trump’s presidency. Many attempted coups leave behind power vacuums and uncertainty. Until Biden is inaugurated, or Trump leaves office via resignation, the Twenty-Fifth Amendment, or impeachment, the federal government may remain in the fragile state of having no clear leader."

death threats they couldn't talk about while Trump & minions are in power but in the end the GOP shall never ever be absolved, pardoned about its own responsibility both in the House and Congress, Its total failure in regard to the US constitution.

those shoes for a few minutes and you realize the individuals in the network are ready for action, the Capitol intrusion is seen as a test or something they can achieve again, some will cheer up and be guided by their hubris along with Trump not so subtle hints and encouragements and you have potentially a huge huge quagmire to solve.

gone rogue to me, I won't be at all impressed if something huge happens from now and the inauguration.

The most crazy part is that if Biden deploys huge forces to keep US institutions on the control it will precisely feed the narrative that for these swarms of radicalized individuals, everything the new administration will do will be interpreted, read and felt from the perception that it is now a dictatorship.

And while technology to liberate ourselves from the platforms evolved the last few years, it's like as if Free-Speech wasn't on our radar or too often captured by the right swarm.

after the last decade of wikileaks, Manning, Snowden, and the general degeneration of democracy world-wide, the latest irreversible mainstream exodus from platforms is mainly orchestrated by huge swats of conservatives, republicans, far-right and right leaning libertarians

combination of the last events in the US and the last mainstream global impact of the power of platforms plus another confirmation of mass surveillance and privacy breaches and censorship have created a perfect cocktail to produce the biggest platform exodus in the last decade.

Leaving the guy who lost the election in charge for another 3 months doesn’t seem like such a great idea now does it?

Wow! I know Facebook is shit but seeing everything they track layed out is insane.

It’s the information each app collects based on Apple’s new privacy badges. Facebook messenger is absolutely nuts, I can’t believe they cram so much shit into 1 messaging app. Instagram is almost just as bad I think.

Telegram is missing from the chart and Signal is missing: Data not linked to you -> contact info. Either way the contrast is mind boggling

If Trump can't handle the thought that he was beaten by Joe Biden, maybe he can console himself with the thought that he was also beaten by Kamala Harris.
