This was the perfect storm, and at the same time it all could have been prevented. The morons who stormed the U.S. Capitol have done more damage to the republican party than anyone can imagine. What did these idiots hope would come out of this???
Meanwhile, leaving the Capitol building basically unprotected because of “optics” was quite a stupid decision. Those who made that call failed miserably and the blood of all those who unfortunately perished or are injured is on their hands.
I’m not a conspiracy theorist, but one has to wonder what it is that really and truly happened here. Certainly everyone knew (through acquired intelligence) that tens of thousands of people, maybe even over 100,000 Trump supporters, were on their way to the Capitol. Also, people in law enforcement are well aware of how easily emotions in such large crowds become escalated, to the point that it triggers violence.
Yet certainly this riot and the storming of the Capitol was not allowed to happen for political reasons, correct? Certainly political leaders wouldn’t go so far as to “invite” this kind of violence in order to accuse and impeach a President, right? Nah, can’t be. I can’t imagine that even this bunch of immoral hypocrites who make up the democrat party would stoop that low. But wait, what if they did, but just underestimated the scale of the protest/protesters? Nah, still too much of a reach.
But, bad optics compared to potentially dead people? I don’t know about you but I would choose bad optics every time.
Quite frankly, I don’t believe we will ever know the actual truth of what happened on January 6, 2021, and the days leading to it. TGO
