An electorate suffering from TDS, blind to their own prejudices is liable to vote away our freedom just to spite one man they have convinced themselves is an enemy of democracy and vote in the exact sort of fascism they claim to be against.
Persistent comparison of Trump's followers to Nazis is not just unfair and unjustified, it can be downright dangerous. How many more Shannon Brandts are there out there, just waiting for a chance rid the world of MAGA Republicans? What, besides the demagoguery of Biden, fuels the hatred of Trump supporters? And notice, that the hate is being directed not just at Trump himself, but those who are outspoken in his support. The Democrats are trying to create an association in the public's mind between support for Donald Trump and hatred for democracy.
Not one word of his speech talks about the real problems we face in America, rising inflation, skyrocketing crime rates, or the cost of energy. Besides demonizing Trump and his supporters, the purpose of his speech seems to be to distract us from these real problems.
There is a time and place for those angered by the raid on Trump's home, that time is November, and the place is the ballot box.

As a public servant, sworn to uphold and defend the Constitution, Gen Mark Milley is obliged to answer these questions. Most men of honor would have stepped down in shame over the Afghanistan debacle alone. Integrity, not to mention the law, demands that if the allegations make by Woodward and Costa are true, he should immediately submit himself to disciplinary action and removal from his position in the U.S. military.
On July 1, 2021, the US abandoned Bagram Airbase, the major airbase in Afghanistan (a move later to prove foolish)
The proposed 5-7 thousand troops is still too high. It's an expensive way to gaslight the people into believing that their neighbor who had a Trump sign in their yard is a potential terrorist.
The politicians and mainstream media are happy to see us squabble over whether the personal payments should be $1400 or $2000, because it means were not looking at all the other things in the bill including blue-state bailouts.
What was the likely real reason for having 25000 troops, checkpoints, and barbed wire in the U.S. Capital for the inauguration?
