It is manifestly clear that last Wednesday was seditious insurrection, a violent attack on our central body of democratic governance: the parliament, Congress withj the aim of destroying it. It was directly and unmistakablly encouraged, urged on by at least Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Rudi Giuliani, et al. They must not get away with this and set the norm for all future Presidents to do the same. Until now, there has been an ability to avoid culpability by those who have blocked, undermined, maligned, misused and support and crippled. Now however they have helped instigate or even plan the attack. No longer can we look away, no longer can their opposition be treated as political opposition in a two party democracy. That is a dead system as of Wednesday. Their self indictment is on video, the vandal acts are on video, the murder acts are on video.
Everyone needs to be crystal clear on this: it was the radical right who crossed the constitutional, the peaceable, the civil, the democratic Rubicon Wednesday January 6, 2021. That is not an interpretation, not a Ted Cruz dodge, not a Mitch McConnell stonewalling. It is a description of what everyone saw and can still see online.
If this stands, then this nation will fall.
So all on the democracy team here (not you Giuliani, not you Trump, not you the Senators and Representatives who lauded, even encouraged thle mob, not you mobsters, not you criminally negligent police and security forces in DC) it is time to settle this hash with all the legal, procedural, security and investigative force that the United States of America can bring to bear. It is time for the local democrats to organize to help extinguish this burning stream of insurrection. Reconciliation can come after tehj January 6 mob criminals have been punished and stability under law has been re-established..
Wednesday’s self styled “patriots” have started a process to spoil 244 years of US history. Now it is time for the heirs of 244 years of US history to exact the cost of treason, murder, riot, incitement etc from those self-styled, God-playing, costumed, selfie taking, ignorant, duped, and sadly superficially patriotic traitors.
No more Mr NIce Guy until that score has been settled once and for all Fasten your seatbelts..
