Well I guess Republicans have gotten into "mostly peaceful protesting" too... absolutely nuts:
What a fucking mess. I think we're nearing the "farce" stage of a declining republic.
And of course I condemn this and Trump deserves a good share of the blame. (Although I should note I also condemn the police officer who shot that woman in the neck when there appeared to be absolutely no need to do so whatsoever.)
The Democrats talking about how this is a "coup" by "terrorists" or comparing it to Pearl Harbor need to get a grip though. This was a mindless rage spasm of a riot with no possibility of taking power whatsoever. And it certainly seems like every single one of them forgot what D.C. looked like last May:
Was that a coup?
This obsession (on both the right and the left) of calling everyone a "terrorist" is not healthy.
That being said, while this was completely unacceptable and criminal behavior, I did certainly enjoy this take:
"Every day is a new life to the wise man."
