“Don’t dare call them protesters,” Joe Biden famously said after the unarmed mob of pro-Trump hooligans stormed the capitol to take selfies with cops, hang from rafters, and sit in politicians' chairs. “They were a riotous mob. Insurrectionists. Domestic terrorists. It’s that basic. It’s that simple.”
Since that day, the Biden admin has made it its mission to construct an all-encompassing police state to surveil, monitor, and arrest anyone who may challenge the status quo. The Biden administration, on many occasions, has capitalized on the events of January 6 to provoke fear, hatred, and divide among US citizens.
Though there were a handful of actual criminals who may have had plans to carry out violence, the overwhelming majority of the folks who Trump duped into believing they could keep him in power were soccer moms and Joe Sixpacks. Highlighting the absurdity of the entire construction of the new domestic terrorism police state is the fact that the FBI confiscated a Lego set from one of the rioters -- and this was used as means of stoking even more fear.
Robert Morss of Glenshaw, Pennsylvania was one of the rioters that day who pushed past Capitol police and made his was into the building. Morss is a substitute teacher in Glenshaw and for the past six months, the FBI has been investigating him for his role in the riots.
When police arrested him, they confiscated a book on militias, a neck gator, and "a fully constructed" Lego building of the Capitol. Yes, you read that correctly. This is not satire and apparently police felt that the substitute teacher's Lego replica of the Capitol building was evidence in the criminal case against him.
Federal charges against him include assaulting, resisting, or impeding certain officers; obstruction of an official proceeding; civil disorder; and robbery of personal property of the United States.

Their reasoning was unclear as to why they seized the Lego set but it can mean one of two things. Either the government actually believes that this man's Lego building was somehow an accurate depiction of the Capitol building which he used as a means of raiding the building -- or, they think that a man dumb enough to use a Lego set as a blueprint for an unarmed attempt at overthrowing the US government was a threat.
Both of these scenarios are utterly preposterous which shows just how ridiculous this new war on domestic terrorism has become. The satire website, Babylon Bee epitomized the lunacy behind this entire debacle in an article this week.
Agents say Morss was also building several LEGO Harry Potter sets, leading authorities to believe he was planning a similar attack on Hogwarts Castle.
“The suspect had several completed LEGO Harry Potter building sets and was about 80% of the way through building the advanced-level LEGO Harry Potter Castle,” said FBI bureau chief Warren Alvarez. “We feel we caught him just in the nick of time before things turned violent once more.”
While the satire from the Bee is hilarious, unfortunately, the government's response is very serious. As TFTP has reported, despite the largely benign nature of the riot, for the last six months, Biden has classified this unarmed group of rioters as the largest threat against democracy, issuing DHS warnings, ramping up security, and turning the area around the White House into a police state.
Two weeks ago, he then proceeded to taunt anyone who would challenge the federal government, claiming that the Second Amendment right to bear arms is nothing against the government's F-15s and nukes.
So much for bringing Americans back together....
