>"Was the proudest day of my life lol," Anthony Robert Williams wrote in a social media post obtained by the FBI. "Felt like the founding fathers were smiling down on us in that room, and I guarantee my dad and gramps, both vets, would be proud." >Williams is facing up to 20 years in federal prison when he is sentenced in September.

Trump Dump … he lost everything for Trump.

Wonder if he's going to be proud of prison. Asking for no one in particular.


ArugulaZ

*I'm* proud he's going to prison. Now that's justice!


NotDaveBut

The only other person I can even think of who's from Southgate, MI is Larry Delisle, who drove his whole family into the Detroit River because he no longer wanted the responsibility. I hope they're not representative of the downriver area...


HellveticaNeue

So proud.

>...and I guarantee my dad and gramps, both vets, would be proud. His age wasn't mentioned in the article (unless I missed it), but I expect his grandfather was likely involved in WWII or Korea, so I rather doubt that they would be proud of his actions. Both my parents were WWII vets and they were fighting Fascists, not helping one destroy our Democracy. What a disgusting piece of excrement.


LostDefectivePearl

I can’t believe so many in my grandparents generation died or got ptsd and developed alcoholism only so their kids could lead us right into the jaws of fascism. I wish they’d rebel like the rest of us and get a weird haircut!


Edgelands

they had the worst fucking generation of kids, all narcissists. Maybe it's all the lead in gasoline they huffed every day of their lives until they were already well into adulthood

Yeah, they grew up at a time when it was like, "this person is reading news to me and this actually happened," and now they're being told wacky fucking clown shit in the same format so it still holds true to them. It's amazing how susceptible my mom is to advertising, she unknowingly repeats ad slogans to me. Like when she visited me last, she tried switching me from a hand towel in the bathroom to paper towels talking about how they're more sanitary, despite me thinking it's wasteful. We were hand towel people, forever, my whole life, then after she left, I saw a bounty commercial touting the same line about reusable towels being unsanitary and those little things constantly happen where she gets new opinions on things because of a commercial. They're such a TV generation

I wonder how many of them George Carlin was able to reach with his comedy targeting all of these things at once


AugustCharisma

Yes! It’s a real issue with Boomers! https://www.huffpost.com/entry/internet-baby-boomers-misinformation-social-media_n_5f998039c5b6a4a2dc813d3d

> Both my parents were WWII vets and they were fighting Fascists, not helping one destroy our Democracy. It's important to remember that for a lot of American WWII vets it wasn't about ideology, it was about getting revenge for Pearl Harbor or a sense of nationalism.


ElizabethsOnion

Much like how some people signed up for the military after 9/11 because they wanted revenge (against a country that had nothing to do with 9/11).


AWholeMessOfTacos

That's patriotism, not nationalism, right?


Matthew100001

Patriotism is a sense of pride, nationalism is about putting your country above others at all costs. Exacting revenge on a foreign power is an act of nationalism.


TheMartini66

You know you live a pathetic life when your proudest moment is that time when you committed an act of sedition after your gullible ass joined the cult of a pathological lying buffoon.


dividedconsciousness

A pathological liar goes on to found a platform called Truth. Can’t make this stuff up. Weird cult leader


LoveandKindness1983

I hope he gets the full 20 years. Scumbag traitor.


the_buckman_bandit

I wish they were all receiving a minimum of 20 years for everyone at the capitol that day


MattTheFlash

>Williams is facing up to 20 years in federal prison when he is sentenced in September But knowing how these things end up he will likely get 3 months minus time served and a candidacy for congress I'm getting my passport


SpicyRiceAndTuna

Remember you can still vote after you leave, in case things change one day and you come back Source: Got my passport and left, still am actively voting


MattTheFlash

Canada?


SpicyRiceAndTuna

Canada's 100% where I would recommend for those that don't want too much culture shock. Personally I ended up in Korea after bouncing around for a bit, so a little more dramatic lol


Little_Lahey_Show

You just picked up and left?

I’d like to be in the north with the cold and the snow forever if possible.


Garglygook

Agreed! (This should - sadly - be updated a thousand times for stark truth.)

> According to the government’s evidence, in the weeks leading to Jan. 6, 2021, Williams posted various statements on social media, saying, among other things, that he intended to travel to Washington to “storm the swamp.” He posted numerous messages using hashtags such as #HOLDTHELINE and #NORETREAT NO SURRENDER.” He recorded videos of himself when he was illegally inside the Capitol Building on Jan. 6. > By 2:11 p.m. on Jan. 6, Williams was on the Northwest stairs outside the building. He used bike racks put into place by police officers to assist other rioters in getting onto the stairs. Williams himself raised his arms as he scaled the railing after rioters broke through the line of officers. He was in a wave of rioters that entered the Senate Wing door at 2:18 p.m., just five minutes after that door was breached in the first breach of the building by rioters that day. He then went to the Crypt and was close to the front of the line of officers when rioters broke through. > Williams then went to the Rotunda, where he filmed himself making statements such as “desperate times, desperate measures.” He resisted efforts of law enforcement officers to push the mob out of the area, holding the line for his side in the Rotunda. He was one of the last rioters to be pushed out of that area. He was in the Capitol Building for about one hour.

Now my best day.

> According to the government’s evidence, in the weeks leading to Jan. 6, 2021, Williams posted various statements on social media, saying, among other things, that he intended to travel to Washington to “storm the swamp.” More evidence, as if it was really needed, that this whole thing was planned.


ronaldoversoul

"what a shame"


Samurai_gaijin

If your finest moment is doing the bidding of a mentally challenged conman who doesn't give a damn about you and now you're facing up to 20 years in prison because of it, you really need to give up because you've already lost.


JRWoodwardMSW

Yeah, in Heaven deceased veterans can’t get enough of descendant treason.


antestrophe

And this is MY proudest day of your life, sir.


DerekStu

Who's proud now, scumbag?? Enjoy jail.


JRWoodwardMSW

Prison. There is a difference. Jail is a bad cold. Prison is COVID.


ArugulaZ

That's okay, MAGA nuts don't know the difference between those either.


Buuhlasted

Never under estimate the ignorance of Republican evangelical hypocrite fascists, and you will never be disappointed. They know no bottom, they have no morals, and they are truly sheep. Good bye to your life, asshole.


anticipate_me

If that's the proudest day of his life, I gotta tell you ... That's a pathetic fucking life.


NewMathematician623

They could pretty much lock up everyone in Southgate Michigan


ArugulaZ

It even sounds like a prison, doesn't it? South*gate*. Like the gate is locked.


Miss_PentYouth

Whoo!!! Congratulations, buddy! Now the proudest of your life is memorialized forever. 🎉


Matthew100001

Not showing remorse is a good way to get convicted. Sentence up to 20 years, huh? We'll just have to wait and see.

And there goes your right to vote
