Actually bad day for Americans but a good day for screwed up wokeness. Get ready for a full binge of identity politics.

Identity politics on steroids. And don't forget critical race theory.

Hooray! The end of darkness and into the light. How appropriate on the feast of Epiphany. God is great!

Thank you for sharing the article. It is easy to forget but today is truly a historical occasion. We finally have a female VP . VP Harris is also the first person of color to hold that position. Im hoping that Mr Faranda will share an article on that at some point. Lets see what the next four years bring.

What a sad day. I never thought I’d end up living in the sort of place my parents emigrated away from

Sad day is right! A mob of supporters of the sitting president invades the US Capitol and is attempting to break down the doors of the House of Representatives! The sooner this president and his lackeys are gone from power the better!

Of course it only works one way. I don't recall comments when people were attempting to break into the SC when Kavanaugh was confirmed. Or bemoaning the riots in DC a few months ago with the police ducking rocks, fires set, and statues pulled down. This is by and large a peaceful demonstration. The "mob" is entitled to show up and protest. It sure looks like a big "mob". But I agree, they shouldn't knock over barriers and call the police "traitors."

This is not a peaceful demonstration! The mob broke into the Capitol and the US Senate chamber and attempted the break into the House chamber armed with baseball bats and other weapons causing damage and deliberate vandalism. Capitol Police had to draw their weapons on the House floor because of the mob trying to break down the doors. What a stain on our democracy! And what sets this apart from the other civil disturbances you try to equate it to, this attack on our Capitol was incited by the President of the United States!

Absolutely. It's not a stain on Democracy, it's a stain on them. The fact that they are frustrated for a variety of reasons doesn't justify breaking into the Capitol or any other crazed action. It certainly hurts the cause. Equates them with Antifa and the other nut groups. I'm sure most people at the rally - and i know a few - did not expect this or will be participating.

"Dictators ride to and fro on tigers from which they dare not dismount. And the tigers are getting hungry." - Winston Churchill

NW 332

“Today, the United States Capitol — the world’s greatest symbol of self-government — was ransacked while the leader of the free world cowered behind his keyboard — tweeting against his vice president for fulfilling the duties of his oath to the Constitution.”

“Lies have consequences. This violence was the inevitable and ugly outcome of the president’s addiction to constantly stoking division.”

“Americans are better than this: Americans aren’t nihilists. Americans aren’t arsonists. Americans aren’t French revolutionaries taking to the barricades.”

-Senator Ben Sasse, Republican of Nebraska

Reporter: "What's the purpose of storming
congress?"
Protestor: "How do I know that?"

This is what is being reported to rest of the world.

Come on Americans- you are all so much better than this! Pull your socks up - help us to rid the world of covid-19, and get your house in order. Life is much too short for all this terrible Trump nonsense and distraction.
