    How sad.
    Feel sorry for all the great people in your country who will have to endure years of didvision to fix this, it it can be fixed.
    M.A.G.A, what a fu&#ing joke.
    A lying selfish self centerd prick who surrounded himself with crooks and people followed him like he was Jesus.
    I've tried hard not to get involved in this conversation, as it's not my country, but unfortunatly what happens in the US affects the whole world.
    No wonder Russia interfered so much in getting Trump elected.
    Now they got away with murder, China has done things it could not have done as easily whith a strong USA, you lost the trust of your best allies and plunged into a conspiracy theory madness that will threaten to rip apart the country.
    I hope things get under control and people stop getting hurt.

    When a house doesn’t respect itself, you can’t expect the people to respect it either. People on both sides have been disgusting to each other for years and yesterday’s events do not surprise me.

    I think you miss the point.
    Here is a link to real news with an analysis piece that gives a better question:

    I think one side have been getting away with crimes while the other side have been beaten, shot or killed for far less than breaking into the Capitol:

    what point am I missing? Sure, online platforms make it easier for these things to organize. What is the root cause that makes people frustrated and feel the need to vent and boil over? Trump doesn’t have a monopoly on nastiness and the lack of professionalism.

    I agree with the author that this was predictable, I posted that I wasn’t surprised by it. We can point fingers at Trump and assign blame. We can also ask what if more understanding had been given to Trump voters prior to this? What if the message from Biden and democrats had been “we guarantee a full review of the election!” or something of that sort. I think that happened in courts. But the rhetoric the whole time was to demonize the doubters. That doesn’t allow people to feel heard, a when you don’t allow people to feel heard, it will always lead to hurt feelings and eventually to violence. A democracy is supposed to allow people the ability to feel heard, but our lack of professionalism at the highest levels of leadership, for many years, has circumvented that.

    If society and our elected representatives had the professionalism of forty years ago, Trump could never have come to be.

    Not everyone associates that flag with white supremacy.

    Not everyone sees BLM as the same thing and not everyone views kneeling for the anthem as the same thing.

    regardless, what is the root cause? I say it goes back years.

    censoring speech won't solve the problem and impeaching Trump at this point won't allow for any healing or unity to happen.

    Root cause. That has been the big question. Take a large group of people that feels disenfranchised and tell them what they want to hear, lie to them constantly, whip them into frenzies and you have major problems. One of the more brilliant moveS by the Trump administration was Kellyanne Conway coming up with the term fake news. Just like Nazi propaganda did. It’s a very effective populace control. When you believe this is the only source of information that is real and it is feeding you nothing but lies that is a formula for disaster and we saw it Wednesday.
