Domestic terrorism

Editor:

I would like to think that everyone reading this believed that the Earth was round, the COVID-19 is real. Climate change is here, Joe Biden won the election and that the people hoisting Trump flags over the U.S. Capitol building during a violent coup attempt were not members of Antifa.

However, we all know, you know…

As an honorable discharged U.S. Navy veteran, I have sworn to protect and defend against all enemies foreign and domestic. It was shocking to learn that there were a significant number of active-duty military and veterans, as well as current and former law enforcement officers, who participated in the insurgence of the Capitol on Jan. 6.

This was nothing short of domestic terrorism.

If I were to say that this was brought on by the fascist cult leader who was elected to sit in the oval office, we all know who I was referring to. I will refer to him as FF45. The impeachment of FF45 is necessary for our democratic republic to survive. We are a nation that honors the rule of law.

The argument that impeachment will further divide our country is laughable. Not since 1860 has our country been more divided. FF45 quoted Robert Jeffress on Fox News, “if the Democrats are successful in removing the president from office (which they will never be), it will cause a Civil War-like fracture in the nation from which our country will never heal.”

This is the only time I’ve taken FF45 at his word. I was called an alarmist when I tried to warn my peers about this. In actuality, this started in the 1980s when Ronald Reagan began to destroy the Fairness Doctrine and Rush Limbaugh got his unchecked mouth on the AM radio dial.

This is no liberal media. Most radio and TV stations and news outlets are owned by five corporate capitalist media giants (AT&T, Comcast, The Walt Disney Company, Viacom/CBS and Fox Corporation). Republicans control the vast amount of news, money, guns and ammo.

I will give you three guesses as to what will happen next, and the first two guesses don’t count.
