The Events of January 6th, 20201.
On January 6th, 2021, the United States of America was pushed to the edge by a group of rioters, thugs, and those who are just downright upset with the outcome of the 2020 Presidential Election. On this day the United States Capitol was stormed with many rioters and violent attacks against the 117th United States Congress, carried out by a mob of supporters of US president Donald Trump in attempt to overturn his defeat in the 2020 presidential election. As said by Mitch McConnell, the United States Senator from Kentucky, “The United States Senate will not be intimidated, and will not be kept out of the chamber by any means.” It’s hard to be in America right now with what is going on, seeing people rioting at the capital and being so upset about a presidential election is a really big movement within the United States. This is all because the Republican Party is upset that current President Donald Trump was not re-elected for the upcoming term. Said again by Senator Mitch McConnell, “Criminal behavior will never dominate the US Congress.” We as a County should have to worry about this type criminal behavior towards the Senate and the Congress. Especially when we have our current president telling people to continue to do it. Watching the talk about the happenings of January 6th, the democratic Minority leader, Chuck Schumer Said “President Franklin Roosevelt set aside December 7th, 1941 as a day that will live in infamy, and we can now add January 6th, 2021 to that very short lists of dates in American history that will live forever.” If you don’t know, December 7th, 2021 was the attack on Pearl Harbor. Putting the happenings of the beginning of 2021 up near this horrible day, is gut wrenching to think about. What has our country come to. I was scrolling through Twitter the other day and I saw someone tweet, and I quote “ The United States of Embarrassment.”
To think that this type of stuff is being said is very absurd. This is supposed to be an amazing country to live in, and for the past 4 years, no one has felt that way.
