a look back

Day two of the second impeachment trial of ex-President Donald J. Trump is now concluded and it upset me all over again, and even madder at any Republican who still stands on the side of acquittal and is not one the side of American law--
 
I was going to write about how upsetting it was to relieve the horror of the video clips of exactly the nightmare that took place on January 6th all over again, seeing mostly the same images I sat in disbelief watching as it happened, but now some Republicans are claiming Hollywood movie company spiced together to make it appear worse than it actually was. Oh, that's right, I forgot about all the peaceful scenes of respectful civil disagreements expressed in a polite, yet insistent way. I forgot that that guy dressed like a Viking with horns on his head was a professor of political science from a respected Ivy League school who was only concerned about what the direction our democracy is taking. The guy using a flag as a battering ram to break windows only appeared to do so; in reality, it slipped out of his hand twenty seven times as he was trying to raise it so the rather somber protesters could gather round it and sing patriotic songs. The police officer who was killed repeatedly and inexplicably slammed his head into whatever rock-hard object the gentleman was peacefully trying to wave in the air, because he wanted to make the peaceful protesters look bad, because he was a far--left liberal. Seeing those, and the many other heart wrenching and unbelievable scenes through the lens of truth really opened my eyes; it actually wasn't nearly as bad to relive those scenes of unbelievable distress. 
 
I thought I was watching disgusting dregs of society under the zombie-like trance cast over them by a president bent on inciting the angry mob to overthrow the will of the people and keep him in power; but was actually a group of concerned citizens demonstrating their right under God to express their unhappiness in a reasonable, peaceful way.
