Active duty Marine arrested for allegedly pushing officer during Capitol riot - CBS News

Warnagiris, a 40-year-old Marine Major who was stationed at the Marine Corps Base Quantico in Virginia, is the first known active duty service member charged in the riot investigation, and joins a list of at least 44 other Capitol riot defendants who have served in the U.S. military.

I'm pretty sure I said somewhere in this thread that active duty military and police were absolutely part of this insurrection. He won't be the only one.

This interview is really excellent and it confirmed my suspicions (belief in the Great Replacement and the election being stolen) as the motivating factor in 1/6 and other violent right wing incidents. Plus some new info I have never heard before. The right/conservatives are fundamentally driven by fear, real or imagined and when right wing media continues to push these lies, plus insisting on a stolen election and other fantastical bullshit on the most susceptible people - this is what you get.

The demographic spread described there was unexpected and kind of mind-boggling. But it's all stuff that needs to be teased out and understood if there will be any hope of addressing it.

Very true. But I don't know what more it will take for people to grasp that understanding is going to be an ongoing thing.
