Some supporters of President Donald Trump in Texas say they're willing to take up arms against the American government the minute that Trump gives them the order.

In an interview with Reuters , Texas-based chiropractor Brett Fryar says he has joined a militia group called the South Plains Patriots who are conducting firearms training sessions in case they need to stage an armed revolt against the American government.

"If President Trump comes out and says: 'Guys, I have irrefutable proof of fraud, the courts won't listen, and I'm now calling on Americans to take up arms,' we would go," he explained.

In total, Reuters interviewed 50 different Trump supporters across the country and found that all of them believe that President-elect Joe Biden had stolen the election from Trump.

What's more, only 20 expressed a willingness to accept that Biden had won, but only if presented with evidence that no fraud had occurred.

Janet Hedrick, a 70-year-old Trump supporter from West Virginia, told Reuters that she believes all of the president's debunked conspiracy theories about the election being stolen.

"There's millions and millions of Trump votes that were just thrown out," she said. "That computer was throwing them out."

Too many people protect the tender feelings of those like Janet Hedrick. The result has been an utter disaster for this country.

Trump is a known pathological liar, and yet Reuters says 50 out of 50 Trump supporters believe him when he says the election was stolen from him.

And yet some of you say we need to try harder to sympathize with Trump supporters. You are the ones who need to change .

If trmp were to actually say those words, he could be charged with inciting insurrection, couldn't he?

A call to arms, "I'm now calling on Americans to take up arms", would be treason. Without a doubt.

The question is, how many Americans would give a shit?

Probably enough to kill more people than you would  think  but not enough to actually do anything besides ruin lives.Just so you know unless there is clear proof that I haven't seen yet I would fight against any insurrection in this country.Saying that if the left (democrats) starts trying to punish their political opponents with help of strong hand of the  government I will fight against that.

I have seen clear cases of the Trump Administration using LEOs illegitimately (remember the Portland "kidnappings"?). I have not even heard any lefty express the idea of using LEOs in that way.

Misusing law enforcement is typical of fascist regimes (like Trump would like to install). It is not typical of democratic regimes.

I don't see anybody on the left "punishing" political opponents. Trying to get them out of office? Yes, but the kind of punishment that I think you're talking about won't happen

The thing is, Trout... that many members of the Trump Administration, including undoubtedly Donald himself, have committed crimes. They have broken the law.

It would be a terrible precedent to allow them to escape the consequences.

More BS- there were no kidnappings in Portland. Those were federal officers sent to protect Federal building from leftist Brown Shirt (Antifa and BLM) violence.

No one was kidnapped and no one was held illegally.

The amount of disinformation the left continues to spew is staggering.

If the fucking Democratic mighty mental midget mayor and governor had done their damn jobs, instead of coddling Antifa and BLM- then there never would have been a reason to send in Federal officers in the first place.

Republican Senators had better block any federal funding to repair damage caused by the leftist brown shirts in the Democratic bastions of stupidity in which they reside. Let them live in their own squalor.

I've got the same feeling too Bob.

We're at a time where fake things like the WWF is mainstream, the vulgarity of Ultimate Fighting is now accepted, reality shows outnumber documentaries, and facts that come from science are dismissed like foot fungus.

All at the same time where one of the pillars of virtue that America has stood for in the world, that being the democracy that comes from the acceptance of free and fair elections is targeted like some carnival target shoot. 

It is going to take years to undo the damage from Trump's ascendance to the WH..... if it can be undone at all.  One of the most immoral individuals, the total antithesis of what America has stood for is now embraced by nearly half of the electorate.  Worse, those in power in the GOP that could turn it around are more than happy to stay on the sidelines to ensure their political power, their oath to the people and the constitution be damned.

There are some sick puppies in this country.

I just find myself saying more and more...what the actual fuck.

A known liar, a known cheat, a known conman, a known swindler, a known adulterer, a known failure, a known asshole, a known bully, a known piece of human garbage...

Yet this is the person they give undying devotion to.

Says a lot about their character when this is the kind of person they hold in high esteem.

This is disgusting.  Sad to see what America has become, where people believe lies and bullshit that NO ONE is yet to prove.  I can go on youtube and put out the most outlandish bullshit with faked videos and people would believe.  How in the hell did people get so gullible?

These 'yahoos' must consider that they have already been put on the authorities lists. The authorities know how to do their job. Also, Donald is ridiculous, but he is ridiculously in love with owning stuff and not sitting in a  prison cell for the duration. South Plains Patriots, eh? Yeah, they're going/on the list!

As we all know, there are two major political parties in the U.S.  There is the Democratic Party, which is the oldest voter-based political party in the world and the oldest existing political party in the United States.  The other party is the Anti-democratic Party (as in anti-democracy), formerly known as the Republican Party.  There are still "Democrats", but there are no longer "Republicans".  From this time on they shall be known as "Anti-democrats" or "Antis" for short.

Another excellent suggestion.  The nickname would appropriately be "Shitheads" or "The Shits".  That has a lot of possibilities.

The Dems vs. The Shits

Because they are incredibly stupid. 

I am not going to lie, one thing that has absolutely boggled my mind is why ANYONE would show such devotion or loyalty to a politician. It makes zero sense to me. I will support a politician as long as they are working for me or towards goals I support, but to threaten violence because they lost an election? That is fucking dumb. I can't even be bothered to watch speeches, events, or commercials for politcians I support, I will just read a recap later. And going to a rally or some dumbass thing like that? Hell no, even watching the Jets is a better use of time. I will just never understand why anyone would stand up for someone so fervently, especially someone who has proven throughout their entire life that they are only in it for themselves. 

And as soon as I feel a politician is no longer working in my best interests, then fuck'em, I will happily withdraw my support because I don't work for them or serve them, they work for and serve me.
