Give yourself credit.

Give yourself credit.

We still live in a historically perilous time for our Republic.  But a big chunk of said peril just departed The White House — The People’s House — this morning.

You did that.  You are, among other things, proof that resistances can win.

You were on the right side of history.  And you prevailed.

(I’ve done some soul-searching.)

Maybe there’s some truth to the accusations of “Trump Derangement Syndrome.”

Because, if you think about it, the worst thing he’s done in four years is incite a large-scale terror attack against a full third of the United States government, not to mention his own Vice President and his family.

Jesus Christ — look at this newly released footage.

The terror attack at the Capitol was a lot more violent than many of us might have guessed from the first flurry of selfies and pictures of goofy costumes.

Impeach. Impeach. Impeach. Impeach. Impeach.

MSNBC: “Must-see new video shows Capitol riot was way worse than we thought”

With Apologies to The Beatles

You say you want a revolution
Well, we all know
You just want to change the vote.
You tell me that it’s evolution?
Well, why follow
The dude dressed up as a goat?

But when you begin the violent destruction
Of the Capitol, you can count me out.
This country’s never gonna be
All white.
It’s never gonna be (all white)
It’s never gonna be (all white).

You say that Donnie’s the solution
Well, you know
He’s got really tiny hands.
You talk about the Constitution.
Well, we know
That you aren’t really fans.

Cuz if you riot for people with minds that hate
Biden’s still next president of the United States,
Which is never gonna be (all white).
Yeah, it’s never gonna be (all white).
Yeah, it’s never gonna be (all white).


Let’s be clear about what we saw at the Capitol yesterday.

What we saw yesterday was a lot worse than a “protest” or “riot” — two words I’m seeing a lot on social media. It was an attempted coup — a purposeful, targeted attack on the highest level of our democratic government.

The perpetrators where there at the president’s urging — specifically to prevent Joe Biden’s electoral win from being certified by Congress (however misguided such an interference strategy may be). It was an attack on the mechanisms of representative government. It was literally an attack on democracy.

A lot of us are also avoiding speculation about what would have happened if these Trump supporters had gained access to our democratically elected leaders themselves. That’s understandable and prudent, I think, at least for now — let’s focus on what happened rather than what could have happened.

Still, the noose they constructed within sight of the Capitol building should make their intentions clear. The worst case scenario could have been far, far worse than what we saw yesterday — in terms of both human lives and a viable democratic government.

It could have been an attack on our country that ISIS has only dreamed of.
