If #45 agrees to do the same.
If you need targets, you could do worse than pick Kamala Harris. On the anniversary of that thing some people did, Laughing Girl compared January 6 to 9/11 and Pearl Harbor. MAGA hats were quick to cry “hyperbole” (or an Anglo-Saxon equivalent).
December 7, 1941 and 9/11 were attacks on America, with great loss of life, by foreign adversaries. January 6 was an attack on America’s Constitution, with minimal loss of life, by domestic terrorists. No argument: it was a protest that went too far. (Sadly, many disagree.) But where did that protest go when it went too far and what did it become?
We call it an “insurrection.” Respected legal analysts like Jonathan Turley disagree. True, no one has been convicted of insurrection, yet. But neither were Jefferson Davis and Robert E. Lee. (They were pardoned in the general amnesty of 1868 before their trials ended.)
Apply this test: what was the purpose of the incursion into the Capitol that day? Merely to drink Nancy Pelosi’s cabernet sauvignon? After defeating Capitol police and following Ashli Babbit into the Speaker’s lobby, what might they have done with Pelosi in their clutches? Or Mike Pence, who refused to overturn the election as instructed by the President who wound them up and sent them hither. No mystery. The insurrectionists were very clear. They shouted their goals as they breached the Capitol and bludgeoned police:
“Hang Mike Pence!”
“Stop the Steal.”
“Where’s Nancy Pelosi?”
“Every law makers who breaks their own stupid f-bombing laws should be dragged out of office and hung.”
“Shoot the politicians!”
“Where’s the traitors?”
“Bring them out!”
“Mike Pence is a f-bombing traitor.” (Source here.)
Blaming the fire department for the arsonist?
Others are blaming Nancy Pelosi for not beefing up security, for not calling out the National Guard. Probably should have but if she had, the same people would be crying “Police State!” As they did following the siege of the Capitol. (We do agree with The Dispatch: condemning January 6 does not require eliminating the legislative filibuster. Democrats ARE politicizing the anniversary — with the help of Republican denialists.)
At Turley’s site, you see Blaska engage other commentators. One accuses the Squire of suffering from Trump-o-phobia. That’s right! Blame the victim for the disease. We like the True Patriot named “Anonymous” who, at January 7, 2022 at 10:18 AM, warns:
2023 HELL is coming and revenge is coming with him.
Blaska’s Bottom Line: Why Hell is waiting a full year, Anonymous does not say, because Pelosi will be gone by then. Maybe waiting out the Omicron variant.
