From Babies to an Insurrection

A little ugly reality slipped into my Grandma rose-colored glasses fantasy world today.

The committee in DC commenced that will FINALLY unpack the events of January 6 and hold all of the terrorists accountable.

The House select committee formed to investigate the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol convened its first hearing on Tuesday, hosting a panel of four police officers who defended the building against a mob of supporters of then-President Donald Trump. (NBC news)

Are you watching?

From Capitol police Officer Dunn: “If a hitman is hired, and he kills somebody, the hitman goes to the jail. But not only does the hitman go to jail, but the person who hired him does. There was an attack carried out on January 6 and a hit man sent them. I want you to get to the bottom of that.”

We all know to whom he’s referring, right?

The officers’ testimony and first-hand emotional accounts of January 6 are even more horrific than what we witnessed live.

It was an attempted coup. It was an insurrection. There is every reason to believe that orange POS committed treason.

And from Representative Liz Cheney: “The fact that so many members of our leadership … that they’ve gone from recognizing what happened on the 6th to protesting in front of the Justice Dept. on behalf of those who were part of the insurrection is something I can’t explain. I think it’s a disgrace.”

What makes me really sick is the knowledge that some of my neighbors and community supported that violence and perhaps were even present in DC that day.

This is what McConnell said on January 6. Where is that coward today?

“They were provoked by the president (Donald J. Trump) and other powerful people, and they tried to use fear and violence to stop a specific proceeding of the first branch of the federal government,” -Mitch McConnell (statement following the 1/6 insurrection)

They are truly devoid of a soul, disgusting, and morally bankrupt.

And while I’m on a rant and because she’s from my area…Ashli Babbitt was a traitor and a terrorist, and anyone who sides with her is also a traitor and a terrorist.

Rant over. Carry on.

  1. I wrote my little rant today, too. I have realized over the past weeks that the power of the bizarre news media is way more than my absurdity meter registered as even possible. I believe the insurrectionists are truly convinced the election was stolen and that D-wad is the legitimate president. I do not know how facts will counter delusion, especially after witnessing the whole Covid denial. I’m afraid people who need to wake up will view this as a totally partisan “witch hunt” and consider the actual video footage from officers’ body cameras as doctors footage. I fear this partly because the more responsible media has done that with other things. We’re in a very very very strange place right now. Those people are traitors who believe they are patriots like little miss tight-jeans Glock holster who “represents” my district. I’m sad and disgusted.

      • You know, I’ve figured it out. Anyway, I get the mechanics of it now. What I DON’T get is how anyone could look at that excrescence that is D-wad and see a hero, savior, leader anything other than a failed used-car salesman who’s cheated on all his wives, thinks he’s hot when he’s not, has no education and has mistreated everyone. He’s character out of a play about the failure of the American mythos.

  2. I watched excerpts this morning and I was almost in tears myself with the police officer. The level of corruption in the Republican Party seems to me to know no boundaries. They were there how can they do such an about turn? I don’t understand it. Clearly some of the rioters are delusional and there minds will not be changed by any amount of evidence. In a just world they’d be taken and given the help they require. In a Republican world it seems they are taken and just fed more misinformation and manipulated.
    Other protesters are just downright bad people. They should be locked up and that should be with the full force of the law and government.
    Any Republican (I’m referring to the ones who boycotted the hearing) who watches what I watched should be filled to their deepest core with absolute shame and step up and do the right thing. But I fear their power hungry narcissism has led them down a very dark and chilling path which few can return from.
    Voters need to vote Democrat en masse after this in order to hold them to account. But I fear this just won’t happen.
    The best case scenario, in my opinion would be a split in the party. Not only would that allow any decent Republicans a chance to shine, it would give voters another choice. And the split would put the Democrats in a great position.

    • I agree 10000% with you. There is a sickness called Wetiko that Native Americans first coined that talks about collective toxic narcissism. But what’s the solution? Voting them all out? Prison? We’re left with their cultsheep who are ignorant, delusional, and violent. What a sad world to leave to our babies. Thank you so much for your intelligent and thoughtful response.

      • I think that sickness is spreading too. It’s not just in the US, but spreading all over Europe too.
        I have no idea how to deal with it either. It’s frightening. The future is troubling, not only are we handing them a world with huge environmental issues, but they have to deal with Wetiko.
        I find it really frightening too how social media is being abused to spread the word of really what’s an abusive few, with an agenda to manipulate the minds of vulnerable people.

      • I know what you mean. I think there was always hate and cruelty. I think we talk about it more now, so it feels more noticeable.
        But I feel like when we first started talking about hate and cruelty, it was in a negative way, showing that it is unacceptable. And somewhere something changed.
        My gut feeling is it has a lot to do with the internet. I remember years ago reading news articles from reputable sources and really enjoying reading the discussion afterwards. They were intelligent discussions with real value to them and people were polite and considerate. It has completely changed. People use them to vent anger, hate and be downright offensive. And many of the comments are just plain stupid.
        And it wasn’t just news articles, it was all over social media, like some people sitting at a computer had found an outlet for the venom they had inside of them, with no real chance of any comeuppance. I think a lot of those trolls are cowardly, bitter people.
        I think a lot of people, for whatever reason felt really unhappy in their lives, and started to listen to a lot of nonsense (and nonsense is, unfortunately nowadays continually vomited out on the internet) and that gathered pace and people with a lot of money and influence used those people’s insecurities, misery and manipulated them. Some were then elected. And they manipulated those people more and more.
        And then it seems, to top it off, bots were introduced to fill the internet with even more nonsense.
        The result is a lot more confusion and insecurity. What do we actually believe? Our young people have to somehow navigate their way through all of this mess. And they have to deal with climate change too. And in the most part we have ill prepared them for that, because it all happened so fast, it also took us by surprise.

        Additionally, people like Trump, seem to have given people, almost permission to behave badly and think that they can get away with it. So where we were once making progress with hate, cruelty and intolerance, it seems like we are now going backwards.
        I think we need to stand together and say, hey that is not ok.

      • I have to agree with you. Sadly, so many now feel it’s OK to not only be rude but to be violent. They feel entitled to act that way. BLM, anti-Semitism, anti-gay, where is the tolerance and kindness? Even in my own little beachy town, there is so much hate and meanness that a councilmember quit. Very ugly stuff. It’s NOT OK, but even if we stand together, those people are standing together too.

      • That’s true, they seem to have united somehow.
        I was really shocked when I heard how much abuse female politicians receive, and it’s everywhere. It feels a bit like we take one step forward and then two steps back. I don’t understand it.
        People can’t chose the colour of their skin, their sexuality, their gender, where or into which culture they are born. However, people abuse other people terribly. I love people who are different from me, I always feel they enrich my life by opening me up to new ideas, foods etc. Variety is the spice of life they say!
        And as to sexuality, I have always told my kids and their friends, love is love and it is always something to be celebrated.
        We have a true rainbow family in every shape and form. I have a trans son and a lesbian daughter and bi son. But I think it just makes it all more interesting.

      • Thank you so much for sharing your family with me. I am honored. I also have always said “love is love” because that is all anyone needs to know. At the end of the day, love is all that matters. I love the way you describe your rainbow family, that sounds so beautiful!
