Jan 6th, 2021, Dark Day in the history of the Nation…Something else we can thank trump for
(picture from NPR)
Ok, trump has managed to create exactly the situation that we feared he would. His “loyal followers” are now rioting in the street. But even worse, they have knocked out windows and actually invaded the Capital. What is horribly ironic about the whole thing is that trump, the inspiration for all this current violence is that trump was the very one who uttered the famous words “I don’t see violence on the right, it is all on the left.”
No word, yet, on whether trump is actually out there with those that are demonstrating, although we know that he has announced, as of a few days ago, that he would be. But then, we know he can’t be trusted, on anything. At no point should he ever be considered innocent regarding the violence that he personally encouraged a number of times over the last four years? Who can forget when he told people in Michigan to “take back their state” which was almost immediately followed by armed “militia” invading the state capital? Now, he is responsible for this danger in DC where Pence and all the Senators had to be evacuated.
This needs to be a learning moment for the American people. First of all, it should be a lesson about blindly following people who make claims that their history and qualifications don’t come near suggesting is truth. But if we had, as a nation, learned that particular lesson (say from dealing with Nixon) we wouldn’t be going through this criminal malfeasance now. But next in the learning moments that we should be getting is that security around Congress might need to be tightened even more.
Finally, while some on the right talk about ANTIFA and BLM as horrible violent groups and deserving of being shot on sight, what about right-wing rampagers who are trying to overthrow the legitimate government and the transition that is in process.
I know some people that are causing turmoil on the congress floor need to end up in prison for insurrection, especially if they have guns in their hands. And trump might just need to join them because he is the spirit inspiring this madness.
Let’s learn from this….and don’t let idiotic so-called “businessmen” who based their fortune on getting bailed out by his father, and declaring bankruptcy and defrauding his customers and vendors whenever this gets even the tiniest bit of hardship so he comes out “smelling like a rose” and “very very rich”.

This was violence from November 14th, so we have been watching it ramp up for almost two months. We need to get real about whether violence is “legal”. If not why is it for trumpers and yet so “awful” if it is even thought that BLM might have hit, punched, or insulted somebody?.
