This is disgusting and outrageous. Criminals and terrorists have stormed the House. They trespass on a federal building and threatened the welfare of elected officials, who were in the process of certifying the newly elected president and vice-president. This was atrocious first because such criminal behavior was incited and called for by the man in the White House. A man who wants to be a dictator, -just as those he admires the likes of Putin and Kim Jung Un-, he told his followers to march to the capital and take control, but in a peaceful way.
that doesn’t take into consideration who or what may be in its path. Then again, I wonder if perhaps they move in such haste to avoid being bothered by what doesn’t affect them. This apathy is perhaps a defense mechanism that has evolved throughout time, allowing them to survive from one day to the next. Because day after day, they must face cold and rainy mornings, afternoons with an oppressive sun that instead of giving warmth and comfort, stings like needles pricking the skin, and end the day with cold and usually rainy evenings. Once I was asked if this place has any redeeming qualities. The reply was quick, “Yes, it has airports to get out as soon as possible.”
Naming the location where everything that follows took place would only exonerate other places just as culpable of atrocities such as those described here and perhaps worse. You might say, “Oh see, that’s not us, that all happens in other places.” No, what follows is an eye-opener to the disregard of basic human decency that is ignored by those who perpetrate brutalities daily. These culprits either choose to remain ignorant or close their eyes to what transpires right underneath their noses. They turn a blind eye because they have resigned themselves to a status quo of cowardice that keeps them precariously safe in an existence riddled with misery, hopelessness, and ignorance.
We are facing a pandemic, people are dying while many others are being rushed to hospitals with symptoms of this horrible disease, -covid-19 or Corona Virus- And that lying criminal who is supposed to do everything in his power to heal the nation, instead goes on television on a daily basis to play down the situation, and criticize governor’s for asking for assistance and accusing them of being overly dramatic.
The day for change is in 9 days. Election Day, the day for all of us to vote out an ignorant, racist, lying, corrupt and sexual predator as the scum that has occupied the White House for the last 4 years, and along with him rid the nation of his cohorts, who excuse his behavior as not being the indications of a want to be dictator. It is the day, us, those who believe in respect, decency, acceptance, justice, ethics, accountability, and compassion, have been waiting for since that corrupt, lying traitor was elected in 2016. The day when we tell white supremacists, and the rest of that scum that supports the current resident in the White House, that we believe in fairness.
