Diamond Joe would bring Tank, Worm, and Dozer.

Trump would bring a few Spetsnaz guys.

As everyone has assured me that the Senate vote doesn't matter, even to the extent of preferring a stolen election to a forcible coup, I suppose that it doesn't matter at all that some House Reds wouldn't vote for a similar resolution:

Americans Increasingly Believe Violence is Justified if the Other Side Wins
This growing acceptance of the possibility of violence is a bipartisan movement. Our data shows that the willingness of Democrats and Republicans alike to justify violence as a way to achieve political goals has essentially been rising in lockstep.
Among Americans who identify as Democrat or Republican, 1 in 3 now believe that violence could be justified to advance their parties’ political goals—a substantial increase over the last three years.
Everyone in a position of leadership in a democracy—whether in a neighborhood organization, a municipality, a political party, the Congress or the White House—has an obligation to renounce violence and explicitly dissuade their followers from turning to violent tactics or threats. Further, political leaders have a solemn responsibility to uphold and urge their followers to adhere to the essential norms of democracy, including the principles that the voters should freely decide who shall rule, and all valid votes should be counted toward that decision.
We need to remind people that in a democracy, political violence is only justified when it is perpetrated by uniformed soldiers enforcing the will of a plurality of voters.

13 charged in plot to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer
Washington (CNN)Thirteen people were charged Thursday in an alleged domestic terrorism plot to kidnap Michigan Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, federal and state officials announced.

The alleged scheme included plans to overthrow several state governments that the suspects "believe are violating the US Constitution," including the government of Michigan and Whitmer, according to a federal criminal complaint.
Six people were charged federally with conspiracy to kidnap, and seven other people, associated with the militia group "Wolverine Watchmen," were charged by the state, Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel announced.
There have already been Team Blue people claiming Trump is responsible for remarks he made about Governor Whitmer.

I really think the smart move from Team Blue would be to mock the plotters as clowns while similtaneously calling Trump a clown but not alleging any connection.

Not to defend those plotters, but I think we'll eventually learn that they're like the Al-Sofa militants that the FBI was big on coaxing off the couch 10 years ago: Losers who were talking big and then an FBI agent came along and leaned on them to "do" something. My favorite is the one where a wannabe terrorist actually got himself a job and the FBI found a way to ruin that for him so he'd have more time to spend playing along with them.

Very likely. I thought the same when I read that one of the plotters carried a wire to one of the meetings.

I'm just wondering what the heck has Whitmer done to deserve this kind of ire. Maybe I don't pay close enough attention but I haven't heard of any weird draconian-ness more than anywhere else. Or is Michigan just extra crazy? Out of all the governors why her (I mean sexism can't explain it all) ?

Also, I find it annoying for the Feds/Trump to completely punt on coronavirus claiming it's up to states... and then getting pissed because governors took him up on it. Like, if in response to "where are we getting dinner" you say "I don't care, I'm not eating" then you don't get to complain when someone decides on a place.

His 'Stay at Home Order' was pretty draconian. That is until the courts struck it down.

Well there's reporting that they were among the antimasker tacticool wannabes carrying their AR-alikes into the capital building, so they really do seem to be self-armed and self-motivated. Not the early GWOT al-Sofa 'terrorists'.

Yeah, she prohibited boating and hunting (well it was probably out of season, buy y'know) and other low-risk activities that the good ol' boys hold even dearer than hatin' libtards.

But also yeah she's a woman and Trumpenproles hate the womenfolk to get uppity.

I felt like these guys were probably a bunch of stumblebums when I read that they'd planned to abduct Whitmer from the capitol, not even realizing that she doesn't actually regularly work there. That's not to say it wasn't a real crime, but they don't exactly seem like a real threat. They probably could have done something, but it probably would have been more on the order of "get into a shootout at the capitol" than "actually kidnap, try, and execute the governor".

I dunno, "Get into a shootout at the state capitol building" is pretty much as much of a threat to public safety as a good plan to kidnap and execute the sitting governor. And yeah, pretty much anyone who actually concocts a plan and executes it is not gonna be the brightest bulb, overall, but still "bunch of guys who have convinced themselves they're right enough to break the law and they have a lot of guns" is a recipe for significant concern.
