The Jan. 6th Hearing On Thursday Will Show Donald Trump Did Nothing To Stop The Attack On The Capitol Despite Possessing The Power To Do So. He Didn’t Order The Rioters To Leave The Capitol, Or Call For Additional Law Enforcement Despite Knowing They Were Armed, Out Of Control, And Calling To “Hang Mike Pence.” He Was Overheard Saying, “Maybe He Deserves It.” He Thinks In A Violent, Homicidal Manner, And When Faced With A Decision To Protect The Lives And Safety Of Law Enforcement, Members Of Congress, And Democracy, He Doesn’t Act. Instead, He Encouraged An Episode Of “American Carnage.” We Will Hear More At The Hearing Thursday That He Enjoyed Watching The Violence. That’s The Epitome Of A Serious Disordered Character.
Autocracies use violence and intimidation to hold onto power. They revel in controlling people by using scare tactics and disinformation. They control the press, so people only know what the government wants them to know. Donald Trump is attracted to violence. As president, his most substantial feelings of admiration were for violent autocrats. He referred to violent white supremacist hate groups as ” good people” and told violent insurrectionists he ” loved them.” As president, he defended men accused of abusing women, and himself was once accused of raping his first wife Ivana and journalist E. Jean Carroll. He made statements encouraging police to bang the heads of people they were arresting as they placed them in the police car. He suggested security ” knock the crap” out of people at his rallies who opposed him and asked if the US military could shoot Mexicans at the border in the legs. He inquired about whether he could order shooting weapons at our ally Mexico. His ultimate love of violence, especially when in support of him, was displayed by how much he enjoyed the insurrection. He did nothing for 187 minutes as the violence escalated. The Jan. 6th Committee will present evidence on Thursday that he enjoyed watching it happen and even agreed with the mob that Mike Pence may be “deserved” to be hanged. Anyone who can’t see that Trump is psychologically impaired and dangerous is gullible, doesn’t love this country, and doesn’t support democracy.
