I was hoping that democracy would survive Republican senators fruitlessly objecting to state electors certifying Joe Biden's election. I hoped that would be the last disgraceful, disgusting attempt by President Donald Trump’s lemmings to dismantle the Constitution.
How naive I was.
But even I never believed Trump would stoop so low as to encourage insurrection by having his minions breach security at our nation’s Capitol.
If the rioters at the Capitol were Black Lives Matter protestors, they would have been cut down immediately by teargas and gunfire. Yet Capitol police were seen helping elderly criminals down the stairs and taking selfies with vandals.
The difference? Skin color.
Trump instructed his minions to conduct domestic terrorism, plain and simple.
After all these rioters are arrested with the help of videos, photographs and social media posts and sent to prison, I hope they realize Trump will not be pardoning them.
Capitol police officer Brian Sicknick died of injuries sustained from being hit with a fire extinguisher thrown by a Trump supporter. He wasn't killed by Muslims, ISIS, Antifa or Mexicans who breached Trump's border wall, he was killed by domestic terrorists encouraged by the President of the United States.
Try to let that sink in.
