Four years of frustration led to storming the Capitol

This outpouring of frustration was four years in the making, and no Trump supporter can be happy that it turned ugly. Not in our name. Op-ed

Of the protestors who breached the Capitol, this much we can say…they learned from the best…Antifa coupled with BLM.

This outpouring of frustration was four years in the making, and no Trump supporter can be happy that it turned ugly. Not in our name.


Lesson learned. If they can do it, so can we, goes the message, and now watch us do to Biden what you did to Trump over the past four years.
But lesson learned. If they can do it, so can we, goes the message, and now watch us do to Biden what you did to Trump over the past four years.

Karma is coming.

Trump’s supporters haven’t forgotten, in no particular order --

-Rep. Maxine Waters urging Democrats to declare war on Trump and his supporters, as follows: “If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them and you tell them they're not welcome anymore, anywhere.”

Prophetic. Since those words were spoken June, 2018, no Trump supporter was safe anywhere.

-From The New York Times came the word that Trump was to be Resisted and belittled by all reporters and columnists. Trump was to be given no shade. He was to be hounded.

Likewise, throughout the media.

-Comedian Kathy Griffin took the hint and showed up with a plaster mock-up, which depicted President Trump’s head dripping in blood.

No federal action was taken.

On the Late Shows, people laughed.

-On all the Late Shows, Trump was a nightly object of derision.

-Robert De Niro drew wild applause when he said, of the President, “I want to punch him in the face.” (Some might call it treason.)

Every Awards show, New York to Hollywood, began and ended with poison-tipped yuks against Trump.

-The House of Representatives spent Trump’s entire four years with that single objective, to punch him in the face, through Russia, Ukraine, and impeachment.

-Shady lawyers were given starring roles on CNN when they offered themselves as proof-positive witnesses to Trump’s alleged wrongdoings, until they were caught lying.

-Women of questionable repute were brought forth to allege indiscretions. None was substantiated.

But worth a try. Something might stick.

-Rep. Schiff was everywhere, claiming to have absolute proof that Trump was a Russian agent. The goods never materialized.

-But the show must go on, and it did when Speaker Pelosi theatrically ripped up Trump’s State of the Union address.

-Special Counsel Robert Mueller was handed the task to dig up any dirt he could on Trump. After a probe that lasted two years. and cost millions, zero. No bang for the buck.

-When it appeared that Trump’s campaign for a second term might succeed, the Democrats sent in the goons.

-Throughput the country, they defaced statues, harassed pedestrians and motorists, burned down shops and destroyed entire neighborhoods.

The media saw nothing, heard nothing. Peaceful protests, they said.

We will see how peaceful it feels now that payback is coming and the shoe is on the other foot.
