It’s January 6 and the Warning Lights Are Flashing Red

Law enforcement use a smoke grenade in attempt to push back protesters at the U.S. Capitol building during a protest in Washington, D.C., U.S., on Wednesday, Jan. 6, 2021. The U.S. Capitol was placed under lockdown and Vice President Mike Pence left the floor of Congress as hundreds of protesters swarmed past barricades surrounding the building where lawmakers were debating Joe Biden's victory in the Electoral College.

When the media declares situations like this are “normal” and declares it’s “news”. When Jan 6th is described as “resistence” and a progressive  movement you know American Democracy is being redefined and all its weaknesses laid to bare.

The fortunate thing is that we don’t need to know precisely what the future holds. History, and the presence of 20 million assault rifles in America, provides us with enough data to know the outlines of what’s ahead if we continue to pretend that nightmares are for other countries, not ours.
