Ακριβώς τον Τραμπ σκέφτηκα κι εγώ, Σπύρο.

Δεν είναι ο μόνος αλλά παραμένει το πιο χαρακτηριστικό δείγμα.

Trump’s Insurrection Requires His Immediate Removal

By Amy Goodman & Denis Moynihan

Congress convened Wednesday to perform the largely ceremonial counting of Electoral College votes and to declare Joe Biden the winner of the 2020 presidential election. Donald Trump countered with a rally that he had been planning for weeks. “Big protest in DC on January 6th. Be there, will be wild!”

“Let’s have trial by combat,” Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s disgraced personal lawyer, crowed from the rally podium. “Stand up and fight!” Trump’s son Don Jr. shouted, as he threatened Congressional Republicans unwilling to support overturning Biden’s election: “We’re coming for you and we’re going to have a good time doing it.”

After President Trump’s speech, he directed the raging crowd to march on the Capitol, where the counting of votes was underway. Trump’s mob swarmed the Capitol, overwhelmed police, then smashed windows and breached heavy, locked doors.

With Trump and Confederate flags waving, the violent insurrectionists rampaged through the halls. Both the House and the Senate, debating the challenge to Arizona’s certified Electors, abruptly recessed as chaos descended on the heart of American democracy. Congressmembers grabbed gas masks from under their seats as teargas was deployed (it’s unclear if any of the staunch Trump supporters in the House refused to don the masks). Soon after Senators fled, marauders flooded their chamber. Guards barricaded the doors to the House in an armed standoff with Trump’s insurrectionists.

Capitol Police shot and killed one of the intruders, 35-year-old Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt of San Diego. Her social media posts suggest a strong belief in the fringe QAnon conspiracy theory. Three others reportedly died in DC of unspecified “medical emergencies” and several dozen were arrested.

The Capitol’s minimal security, with the entire Congress and the Vice President present, was shocking. Videos circulated showing a handful of Capitol Police briefly resisting the marchers, then opening the security perimeter, admitting the angry crowd. Inside, several police officers posed for selfies with the domestic terrorists who were taking control of the building.

Trump should not be there at the first place. The fact that such a narcissistic, vile-mouthed, racist, inhuman, self-aggrandizing sociopath achieved such a high place of office (instead of a place in his local loony bin) is indicative that many a thing is rotten in the States of America. GOP is answerable for allowing such a crime to take place.

Trumpites and other conspiracy theorists now claim to have "proof" that all the violence was started by ANTIFA thugs who had disguised themselves as Trumpites (wearing MAGA hats, carrying flags, Trump banners, etc.), trying to make the MAGA movement look bad. Many gullible people are believing this. Russian disinformation? The right-wing social media, thanks to Freedom of Speech (παρρησία), have no constraints against spreading such rumors throughout the Internet.

Μπάντι Ξ. Λι (ψυχίατρος-εγκληματολόγος): Στο βιβλίο μου για τη βία, δίνω έμφαση στη συμβολική της φύσης και στον τρόπο με τον οποίο δεν είναι παρά ένα παραστρατημένο ένστικτο για ζωή. Εν συντομία, αν κάποιος δεν μπορεί να έχει την αγάπη, συμβιβάζεται με τον σεβασμό. Και όταν δεν του είναι διαθέσιμος ούτε ο σεβασμός, καταλήγει στη βία. Ο Τραμπ πλέον βιώνει μια δυσβάσταχτη απώλεια σεβασμού. Την απόρριψη μιας ολόκληρης χώρας και την εκλογική του ήττα. Η βία τον βοηθά να αντισταθμίσει το αίσθημα αδυναμίας, ανεπάρκειας και έλλειψης ουσιαστικής παραγωγικότητας που τον διακατέχει.

Constitutional Lawyer: Trump Is a Clear & Present Danger, a Senate Impeachment Trial Is Needed Now

The House of Representatives has voted to impeach President Donald Trump for inciting an insurrection at the U.S. Capitol in a bid to overturn Joe Biden’s Electoral College victory, and Trump will end his term in office with the distinction of being the first U.S. president to be impeached twice. Ten Republicans joined Democrats in the 232-197 vote to impeach, and Trump now faces a trial in the Senate. Constitutional attorney John Bonifaz says the House “did its duty” and that the Senate must move quickly to take up impeachment proceedings. “Those who did not vote to convict last time are responsible, in part, for allowing this president to stay in office, someone who has clearly abused his power time and time again, leading to this violent attack on the U.S. Capitol,” says Bonifaz, co-founder and president of Free Speech for People.
