30 days

Lets say they succeeded with the insurrection.

If the "liberals" insurrected they would also get 30 days, right?


SnarfbObo t1_ix2sbmc wrote

given the rhetoric the insurrecting party are prone to using, I assume the theoretical insurrectionists would be executed in the courtroom before the gavel is set back down.

Bold to assume it would make it to a court room. The right are nothing if not fans of murdering innocent civilians.

I don't think that's what it was for. Probably for being part of an attempted insurrection.


cutelyaware t1_ix2rmfh wrote

Yeah, the article says he decided to join the insurrection when he saw it on his date's TV. He could just as well have seen it in a bar. Where he saw it isn't the point.

I think it's just meant to be amusing. The dude is presumably there to have sex with his date, and instead sees what's going on and decides to get involved. It would be funny, if it wasn't such a bad thing to get involved in.


cutelyaware t1_ix5b8ne wrote

He saw the TV coverage the next day, so it didn't even interrupt their date. I think it's just the very common situation where the editor who writes the headline is not the person who reported on the story. They often bend the truth for a salacious headline.

I think he was still at her place when he saw it. Some people cuddle, some smoke a cigarette, this guy decides to attempt a coup

The Tinder date part was pretty weakly connected, I'm sad to see.

The article makes it sound as if storming the Capitol was their date.

I was hoping he swiped right, she responded "Wanna bang on Pelosi's Desk???" And he drove right over.


DragonGarlicBreath t1_ix3mxdq wrote

Or it was a racializing hook up. Not sure if that implies amazing sex or really bad sex.


Mds_02 t1_ix5in29 wrote

Imagine sex so bad you need to overthrow an entire government afterwards.

Still better than my ex.

I agree and I think this should continue to be pointed out.

It's funny there are some people on reddit who would admonish you for Not expecting 99% of headlines to be pure uncut clickbait.

>after seeing the riot erupt on a Tinder date’s television and taking an Uber ride to join the mob’s attack

WTF. There is absolutely no point in characterizing this as the headline did. I thought at least it would be that his date convinced him to join her or something in that vein.

"Man gets jail for joining capitol riot after going to 7-11" makes as much sense.

"See, I knew 7-11 is for people who are involved in bad stuff, tell me more" <clicks article>

j4ckbauer t1_ix5cnes wrote

I don't get how this is a story other than 'Man gets jail for joining Capitol riot'

I guess the headline hook here is for people who have strong feelings about Tinder? Not the clickbait designers' best work.
