Iced Earth - Jon Schaffer Suspected Of Participating In US Insurrection

2021 isn't wasting any time with drama. On January 6th the U.S. Capitol building was overrun with armed protesters during the final senate certification of the presidential election. This caused the meeting to be temporarily postponed and elected officials to be escorted out. These individuals were caught on camera vandalizing offices, breaking windows, and attacking police officers.

Today, Washington police released 38 images of individuals who are suspected of unlawful entry during these attacks. Among these images is suspected to be Iced Earth mastermind Jon Schaffer. The image shows Jon, maskless, inside the Capitol building in the front of the crowd.

Jon Schaffer has never been shy about his political position and has been seen wearing a Confederate flag during metal shows. He has also been outspoken about his mistrust in government and denial of the pandemic.

On the other hand, there is a hypothesis that Swedish government is tending to be more right lately and they sort of want to get rid of some "disposable population" mainly consisting of poor immigrants, refugees, and elderly and mostly any population that causes extra costs for the state. One of their major doctors who took part in deciding for these current measures in Sweden had spread a lot of misconceptions about the nature of corona with apparently coming from the right spectrum.
I watched his interview with Guardian journalist, oh my...! *facepalm*
I really don't know if that's true or not. It's not what I suggest. It's not my interpretation. I just read it. But that interview with that doctor was so weird so much! That really raised questions if the Swedish model of measures was ok!

"Disposable population"??? That's the most retarded thing I've heard in a long time. First of all our constitutional law doesn't allow a complete lockdown but just the other day a temporary pandemic law was accepted by the government. The only lockdown we have is of the retirement homes in an attempt to protect the most vulnerable citizens, the elderly. Over 90% of those who dies because of covid in Sweden are 70 years or older and 50% of those are 85 or older. The average age of a Swede across the entire population is 81. The problem here is that we've had a declining health care system for the last 30 years. And we accept more refugees in percentage to the total population than any other country. So letting people die to lower the costs for the state is a ridiculous and directly false hypothesis.
Also there is no major doctor who took part in deciding our corona strategy. It's the Public Health Authority who makes the recommendations and then it's the government who decides what actions to take. Maybe you're thinking about our state epidemiologist Anders Tegnell but he's more of the spokesperson and not the sole decision maker.
Worth noting is that covid is more widely spread in highly populated areas such as Stockholm. 1/3 of all contaminated and dead are in and around the Stockholm area. I live in the biggest town in northern Sweden with a population of 115 000 and 250 000 in the whole region (second biggest in Sweden) and we've had 92 dead since the outbreak started last year. The Stockholm area with 1,5 million people have over 3000 dead.
And the reason immigrants are more prone to die is that they don't care to follow the recommendations. A couple of weeks ago it was reported about a Syrian wedding with 250 attendants. 8 people is the maximum recommendation.

Felt I needed to respond to that.

Violence is never the answer nor the solution. I despise Schaffer and all the others who stormed the Capitolium as much as the BLM/Antifa rioters last year.

Unlike you I do not use the "despise" word that lightly, because it's a strong a word and I don't throw it randomly at anything. I do not even feel it to say it. I do not even say I hate the people who did such unlawful attacks, I say they're absolutely ill-informed and caught in this vicious circle! What I SEE is the circle of misinformation throughout the years and then it ends up in such attacks. For anyone who wants to read my response in detail please go to coronavirus forum in this link:

Boo what?

I Boo at you for believing your 'democratic institutions' are not capable of tyranny, and thus the People are not justified in armed Revolt.

A tyrant will always have a pretext for his tyranny - Aesop's Fables, the Wolf and the Lamb

The real question you, sir, should be asking me, is:

What will the Tyrants do (Corrupted Public Officials) once their Scapegoat (President Donald Trump) is gone??

Before you go too far down the rabbit hole here, we have a serious discussion forum for these kind of topics where you can post your opinions about democracy. You can find one such thread here.

Just keep it civil, like you've been doing here, and on topic, which you're deviating from with each successive comment you make in this thread.
