After the failed insurrection attmempt on the U.S. Capitol building last month, federal law enforcement turned to the internet. There they found a wealth of information that the rioters had posted themselves, describing their plans. One intelligence expert is describing this — blabbing their plans over publicly-visible websites — as what “these idiots” do “when the brown liquor comes out.”
Below, you can view a short clip of Malcolm Nance from the latest Meidas Touch podcast. He’s describing the MAGA terrorists as similar to ISIS and Al Quaeda, and as people who live in a “historical fantasy,” who view themselves as patriots and everyone else as communists. He says he gets up at 3am to monitor their activity, because their ‘midnight writings’ come after “the brown liquor comes out, and their tongues get wagging.” This, he says, is when they reveal what their next ‘breaking point’ is.
Intelligence expert Malcolm Nance reveals what keeps him up at night and the terrifying similarities between right wing extremists and ISIS.

As for his description of MAGA blabbing on themselves, it fits well with the public record following the attack on the Capitol. While the FBI has used cell phone data, and posted photos online for the public to identify, they’ve also gathered information off social media sites, including insurrection plans openly posted not only on more isolated right-wing sites, but on Facebook — where presumably rioters bosses and grandmas could have stumbled across it as easily.
