With the inauguration taking place there have been many reports of white terrorists organizations harming people and communities of color. Ever since the capitol was stormed people are beginning to wonder if it will happen again, but at a more extreme level. There has already been many online threats made by white terrorists that news stations are showing. Security is said to be extra tight, right now in D.C. at political buildings. And the F.B.I is also on the lookout for these people. People of color all over the country have also been advised to stay indoors until the end of the week.
Now my question is if the inauguration is going to cause all this mayhem, then why aren’t more extreme measures being taken? Why should citizens have to go on lock-down because of these terrorists? The media claims that the storming of the capitol was “so terrible”, “awful”, and “nothing like the country has seen before”, but if that is the case then why weren’t mass arrests made? These people were attacking police and federal guards but still walked away untouched. If these people were Black they would have been dead as soon as they got too close to the capitol.
This causes me to wonder if these people were really ordinary citizens at all. With the racist history of the United States I already know that answer, no. Most of those people were not people with “regular” professions. These people are your police officers, mayors, judges, lawyers, and other people who are supposed to “protect you”. Many people questioned why everything went down the way it did, but you have to ask yourself would you use excessive force against your people?
A lot of people had something to say about that event as well as the inauguration, but the people’s opinion who interested me the most were Obama’s and Hillary Clinton. “History will rightly remember today’s violence at the capitol, incited by a sitting president who has continued to baseless-ly lie about the outcome of a lawful election, as a moment of great dishonor and shame for our nation. But we’d be kidding ourselves if we treated it as a total surprise,” Obama wrote on his twitter. This was very surprising coming from a war criminal (i.e. Libya), there is so much hypocrisy in this tweet.
Hillary tweeted “Congress needs to establish an investigative body like the 9/11 Commission to determine Trump’s ties to Putin, so we can repair the damage to our national security and prevent a puppet from occupying the presidency ever again”. Once again it is very ironic that a war criminal (i.e. Libya and Haiti) has this much concern about this foreign country when Obama and Clinton signed off on a Uranium deal, with the Russian Nuclear Energy Agency with Hunter Biden, the son of current president, being the front man for the selling of 20% of the nation’s uranium, under the Obama administration. People have been blaming Trump for what is happening, but we must remember that the president is only a figurehead. Democrats and Republicans are both the different wings connected to the same bird, and we must not forget that the whole system is corrupt.
