Today, January 6, 2021 will live in infamy along December 7th, 1941 Pearl Harbor Day. In the case of Pearl Harbor a fascist country of Japan bombarded a air assault on a Naval Base on Sunday morning in Hawaii. This attack kicked off America's entry into World War II. Today, the 45th President of the United States called on "protesters" to a go to the Capitol and fight which they did. These seditious insurgents stormed the Capitol where the our elected representatives were carrying out their legal and constitutional duties. They had to be evacuated and some had to hide in offices.
This result was foreseen by many, including myself. The GOP's complete repudiation of any ethics whatsoever allowed this to happen. Certainly Democrats are not blameless. Yesterday I found a blog post from 2009 with the comment of "be afraid, be very afraid" to a video that goes on to interview supporters of Sarah Palin. It demonstrates the immense amount of not only ignorance but plain stupidity of average Americans. They didn't understand policy terms or care, the were "fans" of Sarah Palin. Democrats have not understood the the republican party has been creating this monsters for two to three decades now. The result of that effort have ended in a Trump presidency and the violent sedition we he ordered his supporter to do today. The Democrats have turned a blind eye to this because they also are vested in the money of the system and the benefits of the system. This fact is apparent when our politicians received covid-19 vaccines before our front line workers.
If today wasn't motivation to become more active I don't know what is.
