I like this tweet last night and I hope that if any kind of official holiday ever happens, it is along these lines:
“We don’t celebrate criminals, we celebrate heroes” – it has such a positive ring to what is the anniversary of a bad day.
Whatever you do today remember this: the January 6 2021 Coup Attempt failed, democracy held… but only barely. Next time (and there will be a next time) we might not be so lucky or have baddass motherfuckers protecting us.
According to a new Axios-Momentive poll:
“A majority of Americans expect a repeat in the next few years of something like the deadly Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol — and just half say they now have faith in American democracy,”
“Remember this day forever.”—Hair Füror
It’s not everyday that a sitting President of the United States tries to overthrow his own government. It’s a commemoration of an event that seems impossible except it happened and we all saw it.
What also seems impossible is that a year later, the entire apparatus of the Republican Party is in his grips, and they are still working to subvert our democracy. MPS gets chidden now and then for saying that Republicans Hate America, and I defy them to prove otherwise.
UPDATE 2: What a dope!
