Donald Trump supporters and analyst says 6th January Capitol Hill Violence, they achieve the victory of democracy.
The period from 2016 to 2021 would have been memorable in the history of the United States. But Donald Trump had something else in mind to make it everlasting. He did just that by undermining US elections and the democratic system. But he was not satisfied with that either.
On January 6, the whole world saw the form of those who were not satisfied. Capitol Hill, a symbol of U.S. democracy, slammed down walls, smashed doors, smashed windows, and stormed into congressional chambers, where lawmakers from both chambers sat to witness Joe Biden’s victory in the November 3 election.
Panicked lawmakers, journalists, and other officials had to take shelter in a nearby building with the help of security guards. The whole world is amazed at the trampling of the democratic system of the state of democracy by the trampling of the supporters of its president. But is there anything surprising at all?
Donald Trump’s behavior before and after the US election was unrestrained. President Donald Trump has said in advance that he would not accept the vote if it did not work out in his favor.
He did not agree. Even after losing two of his own candidates in the Georgia Senate election yesterday, he did not want to admit it. Long before the election, he told his hardline supporters, such as the Proud Boys, to be ready. His supporters even responded to his call by guarding the polling station on election day. They have been involved in violence since the election results were released.
Even then, President Trump never said a word to stop them. On the contrary, he has repeatedly raised the false claim of vote fraud in the elections. One liar after another. And the top Republican leaders have seen all this in silence. No one opposed him except a few leaders like Mitt Romney.
The whole world, including the United States, saw the result. The first attack on the Capitol of the US Congress took place in Washington in 206 years following the war between the United States and the United Kingdom in 1814. Known as the ‘War of 1812’, the war began in June 1812 and ended in 1815.
In that war, British forces attacked Capitol Hill. 206 years later, such a disgusting event happened at the hands of the Americans themselves; Without any war situation. A curfew was imposed in Washington over the attack. The state of emergency in Washington will continue until January 21.
Why did Trump supporters gather outside Capitol Hill during this formal election certification ceremony? The answer is that Trump himself called them. He is the one who says, maximum resistance. Republican President Donald Trump wrote in a tweet on December 20, “Statistically, it is impossible to accept the rate in the 2020 election.
Large demonstrations in Washington DC on January 8. Come there. There will be stormy protests! ‘ “We will never give up, we will never give up,” he said at a rally on January 8. He called the Democrats’ victory “nonsense” and provoked supporters.
The next scenes are now known to everyone. Excited Trump supporters marched on the Capitol. He overtook the police and stormed into the lawmakers’ chamber inside the building. The joint session was temporarily closed due to their violence. Four people were killed in clashes with police and security forces.
More than 50 were arrested. Trump supporters sat in the joint session at night to remove. While some members of the House of Representatives have challenged the results of the voting in several states, including Arizona, Pennsylvania, and Michigan, they have not been able to do so.
Biden’s victory was officially recognized by Congress. Shortly afterward, Trump said, ‘Although I am very disappointed with the election results; Even then, power will be handed over in a constitutional manner on January 20.
This is Capitol Hill on January 6th in Motadage. But what was Trump doing when Capitol Hill was attacked? Trump is sitting in the White House with close officials, including First Lady Melania Trump, daughter Ivanka and daughter-in-law Jared Kushner, watching the riots on Capitol Hill.
While senior officials are urging him to condemn the attack, he defends his supporters, saying “most of them are peaceful. What about the summer riots? What about the other side? When they were rioting, no one said anything. My people are peaceful. My people are not robbers. ‘
Despite repeated requests from advisers to Trump, he refused to take any action to dissuade his supporters. He even turned down a request to address the nation through Fox News. He later agreed to tweet. And agreed to capture a video at the request of advisers, which was later broadcast on Twitter.
But even in that message, he raised his false allegations. In a tweet about an hour after the capital was besieged by attacks and violence, he said protesters should “keep calm.” Reiterating the allegations in the video, he said, ‘I know you are hurt. We have had an election where victory has been snatched from us. ‘ In another message, he called his crazy supporters “great patriots.”
Is it new? No, it’s not supposed to be new in any way. Those who remember the 2016 incident in Charlottesville would at least say Trump is like that.
At the time, Trump played a similar role in the attacks on extremist white nationalists. He did not hesitate to call those involved in the Charlottesville attack “heroes.” And this can be seen by looking at the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement a few days ago, Trump is doing the same.
He spoke in support of the US Alliance but said that maintaining some independence was not the answer. However, he is also believed to be behind the violence.
At each of these stages, everyone got an idea of the extent of Trump’s violent and racist character. But the Republican leadership did not take cognizance of him.
Trump has always been on the side of thumbs up to the US law and constitution. Many senior leaders, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, sided with Trump until the last day. Now they are reading the set. Many who are known to be close to Trump are leaving Trump’s company, citing various issues such as morality and democracy.
White House Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Mathews is at the top of Trump’s list of people leaving after the attack.
US First Lady Melania Trump’s chief of staff and former Trump press secretary Stephanie Grisham have also resigned. It is rumored that three senior White House advisers may resign due to similar circumstances.
This is the matter of leaving the company. It is also reported that the cabinet is discussing the removal of Trump from power. An official from the Trump administration has called President Trump’s behavior “monstrous.” How monstrous it is can be understood by looking at the fears that exist among the legislators.
They think the two weeks before handing over power to Biden could be even direr if Trump stays in power. They think Trump can do a lot at this point that could push the United States into a horrific period of violence. In this case, they are looking at the 25th Amendment to the US Constitution.
According to this amendment, if the President is deemed incapable of discharging his powers and responsibilities, Then the vice president and cabinet members can remove him. The Vice President has to lead in this process. The matter has already been discussed in the cabinet. They described Trump as “out of control.”
But what’s new in this trend of Trump. This is the first time he has shown the power and the will to create violence. Is this the first opportunity to be removed from power? The answer to every question is no. But Republican leaders have not taken these questions into account for so long. They want to take advantage of the extremism that Trump has spread to the polls.
Didn’t they build Trump’s monopoly, transforming the US presidency into a monarchy? While Trump has been doing one controversial thing after another, while hitting every corner of the U.S. democratic structure one by one, they have done nothing.
Even when an impeachment motion was filed against Biden in connection with the investigation into Russian involvement in the 2016 elections and the unwarranted pressure on the Ukrainian president to launch an investigation against Biden Then they blew up the evidence in one fell swoop and stood by Trump.
As a result, Trump is not alone in creating this reality today. The short-sightedness and fascination with the power of Republican leaders have perpetuated Trump, who has always been inside and largely a visible monster. The team will definitely have to pay its dues in the next few years.
