Insurrection Defection

The founder of the far right, anti-government Oath Keepers says to the FBI that he had no plan for them to break into the Capitol. That decision was made by a “team leader” down the chain of command:

Rhodes told the FBI that he was “cut out” of planning on Jan. 6 and “did not have a specific plan for Oath Keepers to enter the Capitol,” according to BuzzFeed News reporter Ken Bensinger.

Rhodes also blamed Kelly Meggs — who’s accused of being one of the Oath Keepers’ “team leaders” during the Jan. 6 insurrection — for “making a bad decision like entering the Capitol.”

If true, this throws a little cold water on the idea that the riot was plotted. As far as I am concerned, I can’t say for sure if it was part and parcel of what the Trump people may have been up to in their quest to keep him elected. I mean yes, if it walks like a duck and all, but the conspiracy theory of events flows so much easier than the story of what really happened.

About The Head Seminarian

I went to war, I went to father, I came, I saw, and it is a mess. I wouldn't have it any other way. Shitty people amuse me, people who act like human volcanoes fascinate me like fine art. Life is beautiful, and it is under attack in a manner heretofore unseen in history. I might be writing a blog. Yes, that's all I am doing, now that I think about it. Even I forget sometimes, so we're cool.
