I have a friend, a young guy who use to work for me, who took his sons and went to DC to witness history. (his photo up above)
I messaged him a couple hours ago:
Me: You doing OK?
JD: lol yeah. It was very festival like and I never felt in danger but we did leave about an hour ago
JD: We got a little gas our way but what day to be a Patriot
Me: The only thing that really surprises me is that my Liberal friends really seem to be surprised... The blood is on their hands.
JD: Weird... A guy did catch a pepper ball through the cheek a little ways from us
He said that almost everyone was very peaceful and respectful, that it was a very small number of people raising hell. He said no one was even sure who the loud folks were because they hadn't come with any group that any of the other protestors knew of. I wasn't there so I'm not going to speculate.
One of my retired SF friends in NC said that there had been a bunch of chatter from Antifa for several days about "dressing as MAGA and infiltrating the demonstrators". Again, I dunno...
But anyway... WTF did you think would happen? The anti Trump rhetoric began 5 minutes after the election was called in November of '16. There was talk of impeachment even that night. And the Representative from Michigan, Rashida Tlaib, infamously stated moments after she had been sworn in thate "We'll impeach the mother fucker". Every single day for the last 4 years the Left has attacked Trump and his supporters. The terms Trumpettes, Trumpsters, Drumpsters, blah, blah, blah replaced "racist" as the negative descriptor of anyone someone on the Left disagreed with. Their maturity levels were simply amazing. And now they feign horror at the goings on in DC...
The only thing that surprises me is that they seem surprised.
And they love cops now.
And they are talking of treason and sedition and all sorts of other big words that they don't understand.
The blood is on their hands. Poor behavior has negative consequences.
