There has been much speculation on what would have happened had a mob of Black Lives Matter activists invaded the capital demanding an end to this country’s systemic and institutional racism and a more equitable nation.
Much of this speculation comes to the conclusion that a bloodbath would have been inevitable.
What might have happened had an unruly mob of liberal activists descended upon our “temple of Democracy,” demanding the resignation of the fascist enabler Mitch McConnell and his cadre of right-wing social Darwinist collaborators?
Had such a mob, spurred on by the likes of Bernie Sanders giving a speech outside of the capital, done what was done on Jan. 6, what would have been the outcome? Most certainly the final result would have been a bloodbath.
Now what do you suppose would have happened had a mob of mostly white, neo-Nazi cretins invaded the Capitol demanding the reinstatement of their rejected, wicked, narcissist leader? In this right-wing oligarchy, with the tacit cooperation of some of the police who share their sentiments, we’ve just seen what would happen.
The America we are needs to change to become the America we say we want to be. A return to the Obama/Biden status quo ante is not good enough. We need to enact a progressive enlightened agenda to show we have a government that actually cares about its citizens.
The cruel neglect of the needs of the people by the political class created the mob that invaded the capital in the name of Trump.
