I acknowledge, honor and respect every American citizens right to voice their opinion. This is a right guaranteed by the constitution of the United States of America. That being said, there are limits to both the written and spoken words. Using either to incite violence not only is wrong, but criminal in nature. Doing so has repercussions which we saw last night including loss of life. Were the inciters acting in a righteous coarse, probably.
But when the righteous act in accordance with their beliefs and cause damage to the constitutional progress, this turns the righteous actor into an actor against the state for which they believe they are acting for.
And for the two or more leaders of the coup attempt, shame onto you as you are the worst of all inciting damage upon our national agenda. It doesn’t matter whose name is on the ballet. It didn’t matter in 2016 and it doesn’t matter now. What does matter is that we stand for something larger than ourselves and to Donald J Trump, stand down. For the actions of the senate of the United States of America has and always will stand for freedom.
I am honored to call myself an American. And to the men and women who were actors in defending the constitutional progress against the criminal actors last night, I salute you all. Thank you.
