I don’t think anyone who watched — or read about — what transpired in Washington, D.C., our nation’s capitol, last Wednesday is likely to forget it.
Those events are now a part of our nation’s history.
As the stories unfold during the course of time there will be blame spread, people will go to jail as self-titled “patriots” or traitors, seditionists, rioters, or worse.
But that’s for historians to wrangle with, for courts to decide, not the likes of me.
But I did think there was a certain … stupidity? in the events that took place last Wednesday.
What would have been achieved?
To make the United States of America a “rogue state” to be lumped in with the likes of Libya?
That’s a goal, I think, everyone should try to achieve at least once in their life.
“Look, I tore down a democracy and made it more like some sand-infested hell-hole. I am proud of me.”
And they had to be ‘patriots” because they carried American flags.
So, I guess it’s okay to assault people, steal stuff, break stuff, and cause mayhem in general if you’re carrying an American flag.
