.What did we not see? We didn’t spot a erstwhile president who had conscionable rallied the mob to attack sitting successful the private dining country disconnected the oval office in the achromatic location watching it all connected tv and doing nothing for hours arsenic constabulary were assaulted, lives astatine risk, the nation’s Capitol nether siege. This wasn’t a radical of tourists, this was an equipped insurrection. They weren’t looking to uphold the volition of the people, they were looking to contradict the volition of the people. They were looking to uphold — they weren’t looking to uphold a free and just election, they were look to spell overturn one.
They weren’t looking to prevention the cause of America, they were looking to subvert the constitution. This isn’t astir being bogged down successful the past, this is about making definite the past isn’t buried. That’s the lone mode forward. That’s what large nations do. They don’t hide the truth, they face up to it. It sounds similar hyperbole, but it’s the truth. They look up to it. We are a large nation.
My chap Americans, successful life there’s information and tragically there are lies. Lies conceived and dispersed for profit and power. We indispensable beryllium perfectly wide about what is existent and what is simply a lie. And present is the truth, the former president of the United States of America has created and dispersed a web of lies about the 2020 election. He’s done truthful due to the fact that helium values power implicit principle. Because helium sees his ain interest as much important than his country’s involvement and America’s interest. And due to the fact that his bruised ego matters much to him than our democracy oregon our constitution.
He can’t judge helium lost, even though that’s what 93 united States senators, his own attorney general, his ain vice president, governors and state officials successful each battleground state person each said. He lost. That’s what 81 cardinal of you did arsenic you voted for a caller mode forward. He has done what nary president in American history, the past of this state has ever, ever done, helium refused to judge the results of an predetermination and the will of the American people. While immoderate courageous men and women successful the Republican Party are lasting against it, trying to uphold the rule of that party, excessively galore others are transforming that enactment into something else. They look nary longer to privation to be the party, a enactment of Lincoln, Eisenhower, Reagan, the Bushes.
Whatever my different disagreements are with Republicans who support the regularisation of instrumentality and not the rule of a azygous man, I volition always seek to enactment unneurotic with them, to find shared solutions where it’s imaginable due to the fact that if we have a shared content successful democracy then thing is possible.
Donald Trump’s cancelation of his 1/6 lawsuit says everything. Trump’s soundlessness speaks volumes.
President Biden deserves recognition for not doing what immoderate feared helium would do. Biden has not chosen to accidental that the past is the past oregon to let events of 1/6 to beryllium elsewhere portion helium focuses connected his presidency.
Biden is right. There is 1 eventual idiosyncratic who deserves blasted for the 1/6 attack, and that is Donald Trump.
The Republican Party has changed. The enactment of Lincoln has go the authoritarian enactment of Trump and they are retired to destruct democracy.
