There still wasn't a systemic risk for democracy and the systems in place. There was the risk of an even worse tragedy compared to what happened. But the comparisons to 9/11, democracy in danger etc. Are overblown.
Right, so a violent mob equipped with zip ties, stun guns, etc storms the capitol with the goal to interrupt the process by which the peaceful transfer of power happens from the current president to the election winner, as the constitution mandates.
So this mob crashes in, with all the senators and representatives in the building. We have video proof that some of the mob members came equipped with zip ties, etc to restrain people.
No risk to the democracy? Let''s see what's at stake here:
The transfer of power from the sitting president to the election winner. That's not a systemic risk?
The entire senate. That's not a systemic risk?
The entire house. That's not a systemic risk?
If this was a blamtifa mob you'd be seething but because it was your team that did it, we have to sit here and read you say this was a nothingburger and nothing was at stake. This kind of rampant hypocrisy makes my blood boil and it's the reason why I stopped coming to this subforum, because I can't stand people who're willing to play dumb and call black white and white black just because they don't want to admit their side did an oopsie.
