An Attempted American Coup

Make no mistake about it: what we witnessed tonight was an attempted coup d’état.

Call me old-fashioned but when armed insurgents storm the U.S. Capitol at the behest of the recently defeated, but as of yet still seated U.S. President, for the stated purpose of reversing the nation’s lawful election results, I call that what it is.

These lawless, violent, destructive riots — and in the case of tonight, acts of domestic terrorism — carried out by the MAGA crowd, must be put down — immediately and permanently.

No one — NO ONE — has any problem with peaceful demonstrations*, but when an armed, lawless group of violent protesters break the law — especially at the behest of the President — we cannot condone this as “protest,” and must call it what it is: domestic terrorism.

These MAGA thugs need to be put down. Now.

yeah, in a minute…
* Except, of course, the MAGA crowd, if the subject of the demonstration is something they don’t like.
