January 6th, the Reason Why

On January 6, 2021, a criminal event took place at the Capitol in Washington, D.C.

Although nobody has been charged with sedition, some people describe it as an insurrection.  Some people describe it as being worse than Pearl Harbor.

On January 5, 2022, the Attorney General gave a speech about January 6th.  He said there are lots of citizens who are threatening violence against the government, media, and teachers.  He said the Department of Justice is engaged in the most massive enterprise in its history, to track down, arrest, and prosecute the angry citizens.

For a moment, let’s assume that everything the Attorney General said is true.  What does that mean?

Well, it means that lots of citizens are angry with the government, media, and teachers.  It’s that simple.

And why are there lots of angry citizens?  Well, because they hate what is being done to them by the government, media, and teachers.  It’s that simple.

The Attorney General made it clear.  There are not just a few angry citizens.  No.  There are lots of angry citizens.  And he’s going to hunt them down.  No matter what it takes.  That’s what he said.  And we’re assuming that everything he said is true.

So, on the anniversary of January 6th, this is what we know.  Government is going to use its limitless resources to hunt down, arrest, and prosecute every single citizen who expressed anger at our government, even if only verbally.  It’s not going to use its limitless resources to figure out why so many citizens are so angry.  It’s not going to make any effort to be self-aware.  It’s just going to lock up all the angry citizens.  After it censors them.  After it hands their right to vote over to people and corporations who donate millions of dollars to elect politicians, who return the favor by making the donors richer and more powerful.

Is it undemocratic to express anger at government, media, and teachers who teach our children that White babies and Black babies are different from the moment of birth?  That the proper way to judge people is by the color of their skin? That their parents will be hunted down by the FBI if they verbally express anger at school board meetings? The Attorney General says yes. And he will hunt down anyone who does it.

President Abraham Lincoln promised “government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth.”  That was a long time ago.
