Another JuicyLesson from the mind of 🇨🇦 Jerry 🍁.

What the fuck is going on in DC. Supporters of the moron-in-chief have breached the Capitol building with some of them even succeeding in actually getting into the building and meandering on the floors of both the evacuated House and Senate. Proceedings designed to confirm Biden’s victory have been suspended for the moment. Trump had urged his supporters to march on Washington and, as usual, his very base base has taken up his, and only his, cause. This is the president of the United States, my friends, a total narcissist who can’t admit to either himself or others that he lost the presidential election fair and square and therefore, he alone began the “stolen, rigged election” arguments and his idiot following has picked up on this. Where and when will this stop?
Let’s not forget that the moron-in-chief has proven himself to be a total loser, having lost the presidency, the House, and the Senate too. This is an astonishing series of events. I am beside myself, no more words to describe this scene where violence appears to be escalating by the minute. By the way, Trump tweeted that he’s happy that Republican Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue lost their seats because, according to the moron-in-chief, they were not strong enough in their support of him.
All this activity can be attributed to Trump’s psychological make-up which prohibits him from telling the truth – that he actually lost the election and that it wasn’t because of any illegal activity on the part of opponents of the moron-in-chief. This is a deeply disturbing series of events and situation.
Senate and House Republicans stirred up and on by people like Ted Cruz are to blame for getting the American political scene to this point, not quite a tipping point, but closer to that than ever in memory. There is a report that a law enforcement agent has shot a demonstrator who had entered the U.S. Capitol, with no reports as to his/her wounds. It seems that police and the National Guard were woefully unprepared for this even though there had been reports circulating for quite a while that there would be thousands of supporters of the moron-in-chief in the streets, “demonstrating” against the certification of the election results as reflected in the vote of the Electoral College.
Some Republicans have called for the moron-in-chief to help put out the fire presently burning on Capitol Hill but to this point, only a tweet or two asking the crowd to remain peaceful and to respect the men “in BLUE”. Anyone who hopes that Trump will take action to arrest the dangerous stuff transpiring in DC right now is simply whistling in the wind.
WASHINGTON, DC – JANUARY 06: Members of congress run for cover protesters try to enter the House Chamber during a joint session of Congress on January 06, 2021 in Washington, DC. Congress held a joint session today to ratify President-elect Joe Biden’s 306-232 Electoral College win over President Donald Trump. A group of Republican senators said they would reject the Electoral College votes of several states unless Congress appointed a commission to audit the election results.

Trump has just made a short video statement chock full of mixed messages. On the one hand, he tells this mob that they should go home in peace, while simultaneously inciting violence, lawlessness and vandalism by saying that he knows how they feel, that they are loved and that the election was stolen from him. He still refuses to say that he lost a democratically administered election , thus confirming his mental illness for everyone to see. The man is sick. He didn’t come close to winning the election regardless of the evidence and of the fact that he has absolutely no proof that the election was in any way rigged.
To say the least, it was disconcerting to see a few members of the mob who had managed to get into the Senate and the House of Representatives meandering around there and actually sitting in the evacuated offices of a few Senators and Congresspeople, feet up on desk in at least one case. One of these so-called domestic terrorists left the following message on Pelosi’s desk : We the people will not back down or words to that effect.

Decided to sleep on what I had so far written and now I’m back. Firstly, I am pleased to say that the Senate and the House of Representatives have successfully formalized Joe Biden as the president-elect, in other words as the next president of the United States. Even though the only thing that Biden has going for him in my opinion is that he isn’t the moron-in-chief, that’s enough for me. True that he’s a corporate Democrat which definitely mitigates against any chance for the passage of any meaningful progressive legislation. Medicare For All, Green New Deal – no chance.
Secondly, it pains me to say that the woman who was shot yesterday has died, along with three others whose deaths have been attributed to “medical emergencies.
And thirdly, on the day after the debacle on Capitol Hill, people have been asking what would have happened if demonstrators/protesters/domestic terrorists/mob members had been people of colour instead of pure white – personally I didn’t notice even one black or brown face on television amongst the rioters yesterday. I’ll say one thing regarding that scenario and that is that cops wouldn’t be taking selfies with people of colour as they did yesterday wIth white “protesters”, nor would they have gently accompanied them down the Capitol steps or moved barricades to allow these terrorists to pass. Just think how law enforcement treated Black Lives Matter demonstrators in the aftermath of the murder by a cop of George Floyd, the former pressing his knee on Floyd’s neck for almost nine minutes until Floyd died, begging for his life and calling for his mother.

Amerika is a systemically racist society whose people believe that they are living in the world’s best country characterized by an exemplary democracy. As a Canadian, please permit me to say that I’ll pit our democracy against that south of the border any day. I know this ain’t the point of this JuicyLesson, I’m just saying that Amerikans live in their ethnocentric world where they have been #1, which is only a fact in their own minds. What makes Amerikan democracy so great? What makes it better than any other democratic government even before the beginning of the moron-in-chief’s presidency? Like I said, this is only a figment of the Amerikan imagination, pure and simple.
Now back to my analysis of yesterday’s events. These domestic terrorists are delusional, no doubt about that. They actually believe that the election was stolen regardless of their being presented with the fact that over forty law suits prosecuted by the moron-in-chief through his lawyers contending that there was widespread election rigging, have been thrown out of court due to a LACK OF ANY EVIDENCE WHATSOEVER. There’s just no arguing with the MAGA crowd which is sad but true. A few of them interviewed on TV this morning say that they are proud of what happened yesterday in DC. They also believe that they should have gone even further; in the words of one MAGA woman, we should have gone in there and dragged Senators out by their hair and told them that this is enough – whatever that means.
So far, over sixty of yesterday’s “protesters” have been arrested. Hopefully there will be plenty more arrests to come. These people should be prosecuted to to the full extent of the law and should be jailed for serious amounts of time.
As for the moron-in-chief, he has clearly lost his mind, having a nervous breakdown in plain sight, for everyone – both foreign and domestic – to see. Hopefully he will not be allowed to damage your country any more than he already has.
Peace out my brothers and sisters.
