Thoughts on January 6, 2021

The attack on the U.S. Capitol brings these thoughts to mind:

  1. Conservatives spend so much time genuflecting before the shrine of Winston Churchill. Paradoxical that they've spent the last four years appeasing a fascist.
  2. Does anyone remember the Republican outrage over the storming of the U.S. compound in Benghazi? 10 hearings. A House Select Committee created solely for the purpose of investigations.  The endless disparagement of Hillary Clinton. Well, we now wait for the remorseless Republican outrage over a Republican president who, along with his two Senate accomplices (see below), fomented an insurrection and the storming of the U.S. Capitol and the killing of a U.S. Capitol police officer.


Here's my best go at a headline:

This is the face of American Fascism


And here's my best perversion of T.S. Eliot ...

This is how America ends. Not with a bang but a whimper.
