I’d been struggling with what and how to write about what happened in DC Wednesday, when I came across my friend xPraetorius’s post that sums up my thoughts perfectly so I thought I’d re blog it here. x brings some fantastic insight so please make sure to read his post.
In x’s view, the important message of why so many people showed up in support of Donald Trump has been completely overshadowed by the Capitol building fiasco in which a small faction of protestors did some pretty stupid and awful things. Exactly who participated in that and why remains to be seen until a full investigation is done. Punishments should be given accordingly once that process plays out.
Do not be fooled though in thinking a chapter is closing and a sense of normalcy and calm will return once Biden takes office. As the left keeps hammering their false narrative as to what happened, they will push more and more for conservative thought to be labeled dangerous and its followers to be canceled out of existence. You’ll be hearing a lot more about domestic terrorism in the coming months and it won’t be pretty.
This is only the beginning of a new and uglier chapter.
I don’t know about you, but I prefer my news as, you know… news — “Hey! This interesting thing just happened!” — not as pre-written narrative into which some manipulative, scheming bastard, trying to control my perception of things around me*, then fits or fabricates any events he can to support that narrative. * “Manipulative, scheming bastards, trying to control our perception of things around us” — a nice summary description of today’s media!A Different Perspective on The Last Few Days in Washington, DC — The Praetorian Writers’ Group
