Once again I will be right, and happily so.
The bad news:
I didn’t think this would happen, despite many people warning of it. It is a putsch prompted by a fascist who doesn’t have the concern about America to call it off. His motto should be “Make America Hate Again”.
Chaos engulfed the Capitol on Wednesday as a faction of Republicans sought to overturn President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s victory in Congress and a group of protesters loyal to President Trump tried to storm the building, demanding to be heard.
Around 2:15 p.m., the proceedings ground to a halt as security rushed Vice President Mike Pence out of the Senate chamber and the Capitol building was placed on lockdown, with senators and members of the House locked inside their chambers.
The extraordinary day in Washington laid bare deep divisions both between the two parties and within Republican ranks, the ceremonial counting of electoral votes that unfolds every four years in Congress was transformed into an explosive spectacle, with President Trump stoking the unrest.
“This is what you’ve gotten, guys,” Senator Mitt Romney, Republican of Utah, yelled as the mayhem unfolded in the Senate chamber, apparently addressing his colleagues who were leading the charge to press Mr. Trump’s false claims of a stolen election.
Look at this! I think it’s illegal to carry guns inside the Capitol building, but if they can’t stop these miscreants from entering, how could they take their guns?
They will not win, but I may have been wrong in thinking that there would be no violence. Think about this: there are people who would risk their lives to illegally keep Trump in office.
