……The second thing to consider, and it’s related to the first, is why Ashli Babbitt went to the rally in the first place. She bore no resemblance to the angry children we have seen wrecking our cities in recent months — pasty, entitled nihilists dressed in black, setting fires and spray painting slogans on statues. She looked pretty much like everyone else.
So why was she there? We ought to think about that. If you want to fix it, you have to think about that.
The only reason this country is rich and successful is because for hundreds of years, we have enjoyed a stable political system. The only reason that system is stable is because it’s a democracy, responsive to voters.
Democracy is a pressure relief valve. As long as people sincerely believe they can change things by voting, they stay calm. They don’t burst into the House chamber. They talk and they organize and they vote. But the opposite is also true if people begin to believe that their democracy is fraudulent, that voting is a charade, that the system is rigged and it’s run in secret by a small group of powerful, dishonest people who are acting in their own interests. Then, God knows what could happen.
Actually, we do know what could happen, because it’s happening right now. It’s happened in countless other countries over countless centuries. And the cycle is always the same because human nature never changes.
“Listen to us!” scream the population.
“Shut up and do what you’re told,” say their leaders.
In the face of dissent, the first instinct of illegitimate leadership is to crack down on the population, but crackdowns never make it better. They always make the country more volatile and more dangerous. The people in charge rarely understand that. They don’t care to learn or listen, because all of this conversation is a referendum on them and their leadership. So they clamp down harder.
This is the Romanov program, and it ends badly every single time. But that doesn’t mean they won’t try it again. Of course they will, because it’s their nature. It’s how we got here in the first place.
Millions of Americans sincerely believe the last election was fake. You can dismiss them as crazy. You can call them conspiracy theorists. You can kick them off Twitter. But that won’t change their minds. Rather than trying to change their minds, to convince them and reassure them that the system is real and that democracy works — which you would do if you cared about the country or the people who live here — our new leaders will try to silence them.
What happened Wednesday will be used by the people taking power to justify stripping you of the rights you were born with as an American: Your right to speak without being censored, your right to assemble, to not be spied upon, to make a living, and to defend your family.
These are the most basic and ancient freedoms that we have. They’re why we live here in the first place. They’re why we’re proud to be Americans. They’re what make us different, and they’re all now in peril.
……But if you don’t bother to pause and learn a single thing from your citizens storming your Capitol building, then you’re a fool, you lack wisdom and self-awareness, and you have no place running a country. We got to this sad, chaotic day for a reason.
The ‘Save America’ protest by American patriots really was mostly peaceful, but the anger of those who stormed the Capitol out of sheer frustration and being fed up with corruption put a scare into the DemProgs and RINOs who are using the protest as an excuse to further denigrate anyone who won’t goosestep to the status quo.
75 million people will not stand for a stolen election. If Biden gets in, he can look forward to patriots fighting his ass for as long as he’s there. The election was an illegitimate farce created by voter fraud, ballot tampering, and “malfunctioning” machines. 75 million Trump voters won’t forget.
The capitol is full of corruption, theft, and depravity. Tens of thousands of people peacefully protested outside while a relative few went inside the building. Antifa and BLM on the other hand, have rampaged across the country, causing millions of dollars worth of damage. They riot, commit arson, assault, murder, and vandalize. They’ve destroyed businesses, police stations, and courthouses. They have zero respect for the rule of law. But patriots who stand up to their malfeasance scare the hell out of them. They’ve even accused the anarchists of being “far-right extremists”. You can’t make up that shit.
They give billions in aid to foreign governments and only $600 in crumbs for Americans. The state governments took a sledgehammer to the economy with lockdowns, putting millions out of work.
Politicians use their offices as conduits for crime and pushing legislation that encroaches on the rights and liberties of citizens. We’re also sick of RINOs who refuse to stand up to the two-tiered level of ‘justice’ and allow criminals like Obama, Hillary, and Biden to flourish without consequences. They ignore the anger of constituents who are tired of seeing these despicable shitbags get away with their crimes.
This is what happens when high-ranking politicians are never held accountable for their actions.
Dems are perfectly okay with American businesses being burned to the ground and destroyed since they’re anti-capitalist and pro-Communist. But don’t you dare attack their hallowed halls of government corruption.
If they push us too far, there will be another revolution that will make 1776 look like a minor scuffle.
