How is it that these House Democrats who brought their articles of impeachment to the Senate do not understand that they, not anything President Trump said, are the reason Trump supporters were so riled up on January 6?
The very emotional opening for this last impeachment trial in the Senate included a video in which politicians recounted their harrowing experiences that day. It was a bad day, don’t get me wrong. I was watching and hoping Congress would come to its senses and let the states have a little more time to review the really screwed up election and proceed with forensic audits. Instead, the protest happened, and we were not given that opportunity. As an American citizen who has been insulted and ridiculed for four years just for backing my president, I wasn’t very happy about it.
I’m sorry these lawmakers (and breakers) had to go through such a scary day. It should not have happened. Attacks should never have been planned, no matter what. American conservatives don’t generally deal with other citizens in a violent way. Americans on the Right tend to be good people who just want to live their lives and who would prefer to be left alone. It takes a lot to get us fired up. We don’t do a lot of BS. We like our simple lives. We love our God, our families, and our country.
