On the Capitol Hill Riots
As soon as the Capitol Hill protest took over the House and Senate chambers it turned into a riot. Many politicos called it unacceptable and accused the US of being a banana republic. The encounter itself goes beyond the issue of misbehavior. For those who view the actions of the protesters as illegitimate they need to be reminded of what has transpired over the last couple of years.
This protest has it beginnings long before the events took place. It started with Black People rioting and looting after a black person was killed by the police. It did not matter whether the suspect was guilty of the crime or not. Businesses were burned and looted ostensibly to protest the shooting victim. Of course civil rights leaders never asked the question of the guilt of the perpetrators. Nor did they care. They simply incited the people to more violence. Finally George Floyd was killed. It was claimed that he kept telling the police that he could not breathe. No one questioned how it was that a person with his wind cut off was able to exclaim that he couldn’t breathe. No one looked at the entire video to see what led up to the need to restrain Floyd in the first
The knee jerk reaction was to burn cities and loot and burn businesses. Politician declared these to be peaceful protests. No actions were taken against the protesters. When the police would arrest the protesters they were released with no charges filed against them. Defund the police became the battle cry. Donald Trump did his best to keep the situation under control. For which he was criticized,
Finally the election came. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that when two truck loads of ballots are transported across state lines and all ballots were for Biden that something is amiss, or when trunks are pulled out from underneath a table and counted after the regular counting has stopped for the day. All for Biden of course.
These activities were reported to the courts. Incredibly the courts stated there was no evidence of fraud. By refusing to hear the legitimate complaints of the people, the judiciary shut off all avenues of protest the people had. The rest is history.
It would serve the Politicians and judges with notice that the average person is fed up with the status quo. If something is not done about it. then there will be more civil disobedience until the situation is resolved or there will be a shooting war. We are at a crossroad and how we will proceed depends on our leaders.
