Why? What are they afraid of? Civil disobedience and violence have never been the mantra of conservatives, not even from those I've chalked up as conspiracy theorists. In fact, it is one of the things they are most against. What happened at the Capitol wasn't incited by Trump. We know that busloads of provocateurs were present. We know that preceding the event, these people were instructed to wear Trump gear and blend in.
Time will tell if my theory that the break-in was staged by them to encourage some of the more radical, which every group has, to follow. There are enough video clips to identify most of them and they will be punished.
What I see in the media and from some in Congress is akin to a lynch mob. If any inciting of the public has been done, it is the media and the one sided imbalance of the justice scales for the past four years. Since when is trying to preserve and protect the country's ideology, history and Constitution a bad thing? Even the mistakes we've made are lessons to be learned from.
