I started monitoring the live streams as I worked from home yesterday – about 2pm, from my memory. I watched a diverse group of Patriots rally for their rights in OUR building – the house that is OF the People, BY the People, and FOR the People. It was remarkably peaceful. Even after they gained access to the Capitol, people were meandering in and out of offices, lounging in the chairs we paid for, and taking selfies. It was wholly unremarkable. Everyone was jovial – after all, we were not there to torch the building but rather make our voice known. It was an earthquake to the Ivory Tower of American Government saying, simply, “we know where you are and we can come here”.
It contrasted immensely with the media coverage. Apparently, they were a mob. I never knew a mob to stick to the silk railing defined walkways, but okay. Even then, they were doing their best to be respectful to the police. I mean, we ARE the last support barrier of the police. They were thanking them for being there, taking selfies with them, and telling them to be safe. I did not see, in all of the live streams I watched (basically from 2pm EST to midnight) any confrontations that were not initiated by the police being unreasonable.
At some point, reports came in about someone being shot, and I watched on Twitter the video of a woman being wheeled out by EMS. Her name was Ashli Babbit, a 14 year veteran of the USAF. Things continued to escalate. Sporadic fights broke out. Tensions rose. After this, everything came at me as if I was drinking water from a firehose. There were reports of National Guard movements and Pence potentially invoking the 25th Amendment. Then, the evening streams came online, and I watched the over-reaction of police forces harassing people like Millennial Millie and FRICN Media. As I write this, I am watching the certification process on NBC.
So why did I compare this to the Intolerable Acts? Even though it is known for Leftist rewriting, let’s consult Wikipedia.
The Intolerable Acts were punitive laws passed by the British Parliament in 1774 after the Boston Tea Party. The laws were meant to punish the Massachusetts colonists for their defiance in the Tea Party protest in reaction to changes in taxation by the British Government. In Great Britain, these laws were referred to as the Coercive Acts.
The acts took away self-governance and rights that Massachusetts had enjoyed since its founding, triggering outrage and indignation in the Thirteen Colonies. They were key developments in the outbreak of the American Revolutionary War in April 1775.
The Patriots viewed the acts as an arbitrary violation of the rights of Massachusetts, and in September 1774 they organized the First Continental Congress to coordinate a protest. As tensions escalated, the American Revolutionary War broke out in April 1775, leading in July 1776 to the declaration of an independent United States of America.
What we have witnessed over the last 48 hours is a violation of our rights and a coup against the Constitution. Not only did they use the cheating system pioneered in the General Election of 2020 to perfection (since no one objected and they got away with it), but they executed an innocent protester and subsequently told a vast majority of the country that she – and them – did not matter.
That live stream today gave me hope. I saw the young stand shoulder to shoulder with those who needed canes; old veterans unite with new veterans; the Red Pilled and the Normies – an incredible blending of race, age, gender, and culture standing fast under a united banner.
What will be our Lexington and Concord? And will those citizens who are duty bound by birth, fortune, and divine providence show up? These are hard questions every Patriot needs to ask.
The battle lines are drawn. If there are any doubts in your mind, you better get that shit squared away.
