Mob storms Capitol Building

We just had a violent mob assault the US capitol … No question the President formed the mob, the President incited the mob, the President addressed the mob. He lit the flame. — Liz Cheney

Yesterday afternoon, a formality to certify Presidential Election results, astonishing scenes as a mob stormed the Capitol Building. A mob incited by President Trump.  

This was not a coup. But why was it allowed to happen?

It was known a mob was descending, egged on by Trump.

Why was the building not guarded?

Contrast with the unknown para-militaries on the streets for Black Lives Matter protest.

Or treatment of disabled protesters.

Or treatment of anti-Trump protesters four years ago during the Trump Inauguration. 

We have two weeks of Trump in power.

When Trump leaves office there must be an investigation of Trump, his family, his cronies, those who funded, and Facebook that enabled.

Those who stormed the building genuinely believed the election had been stolen even though no evidence to support their delusions. Why therefore do they labour under these delusions? Delusions spread and regurgitated on Facebook.

Republicans who tried to block certification of election result should be expelled. They are unfit to hold public office. They have failed their sacred oath to uphold the Constitution.

What we saw, was not a coup, not domestic terrorism. But what it shows is how fragile democracy. Never to be taken for granted.

Earlier, Trump standing behind a glass bullet proof screen urged his supporters to march on the US Capitol.

Trump incited a mob.

Twitter has suspended Trump for twelve house with the threat of permanent suspension.

The twitter account of Trump should be suspend until he leaves office.

The only modern parallel to what has happened was when the Spanish Parliament was stormed by fascists.

More recent past, storming of German Parliament by fascists, the Kapp Putsch in 1920.  It was defeated by a general strike.

To call the last four years Trumpism is wrong. It implies a philosophy. There was no philosophy other than Brand Trump, insatiable greed of Trump and his cronies. 

Now the Russian dirty money will dry up, what will Trump do as he will be of no further use.?

Let Trump set up a TV channel, and organise a boycott of every businesses that advertise on the channel. 

We must now act against the enablers, especially facebook. 

If we fail to act, where it ends is Auschwitz.
