The absolutely stunning attack on the most visible symbol of American democracy on 6 January 2021 should be a lesson to us all that words matter. For far too long the lunatic fringes of our society have been given a free pass by claiming that their organization’s members are nothing more than spirited “patriots”. What I witnessed yesterday was an armed insurrection attacking the United States Capitol building while Congress was in session and the current vice president and vice president-elect were present. This is unacceptable in a free democracy with well established laws and rules. It was not a protest, it was the pure definition of mob violence directed at the freely elected representatives of our government. And we all know who, just moments before the attack was the prime instigator. Breaking laws and planning a coup against our government is a serious crime that should be punished to the full extent of the law.
I believe in my country and I believe our Republic will prevail as long as the lunatic fringes of our society are reeled in and labeled for what they are – Rebellious Traitors. I served over 22 years in the United States Navy during the height of the Cold War with the Soviet Union. I would have given my life to protect this country and I expect nothing less from our elected officials that take an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution against all enemies both foreign and domestic. The same oath I took back in 1975.
I suggest a formal inquiry be conducted to root out the cancerous factions within and without our government. Someone and somebody is responsible for instigating the events of yesterday with their constant lies and inciteful words and actions.
Don’t let the ideals that make this country great fade out or be overrun by terrorists and extremists. – Chris
