I have been spending an average of 8 hours a day online, all my waking hours in times like these for almost five years. I follow live streaming and undoctored clips of the most reputable, informed conservative people available. I also follow everyday folks who stream the scenes from their phones. When I become aware of some rumor or statement that sounds off-the-wall, I research its source and discount those that seem incredible. I listened to the Trump's full address and I've seen clips of the siege both from what's been reported and those from participants on the scene. I wasn't there and it will take some time to get the truth sorted out if it ever does. Reported by those on the scene outside people were already at the capitol before Trump's speech was finished, some dressed in body armor and carrying pipes. One person's attempt to break a window, pulled down by supporters on a clip. Some people camera hogs and easily identified, others walking in calmly as on a tour. For those only caught up in the moment, a stupid and horrendous mistake that has brought wrath down around not only their own heads but everyone who ever uttered it was a stolen election. To say that now is considered sedition.
Although bits and pieces have leaked out, the only presentation of evidence was to the legislators of Georgia which I viewed live myself. What they saw was enough to have them request a delay in the certification of their ballots. Previously, the courts refused to review the evidence and tossed suits out on technicalities unseen. Claims were deemed spurious without verification.
Now we have the aftermath. Dick Morris, Clinton's advisor when he was President calls it "The Coming Reign of Terror". The 70-80 million people who favored the ideology of this administration are being labeled "domestic terrorists". Every source of alternate information has been targeted, as well as any advertisers. It's become Orwellian. I can't change mindsets but I'd be remiss not to warn.
