Know Your “Revolutions”!

While having some lunch on Wednesday, January 6th I turned on the news and noticed there was an awful lot of “Constitutional Rights” being exercised at our nation’s capital in Washington D.C. at the exact same time the U.S. Congress was in session to exercise their own “Constitutional Powers” to certify a person as President of the United States.

Astute readers will notice the subtle distinction: Everyone in America has Constitutional Rights, including members of Congress, but only Congress has Constitutional Powers. As our duly – and, hopefully, fairly and honestly – elected representatives, the members of Congress exercise their powers ostensibly on our behalf.

The “mostly peaceful” pro-Constitution supporters of President Trump who visited Washington D.C. on that day got me to thinking about how the events of that one day – one might say “Revolutionary events” – compared to other recent protests in America’s history. And, after reflecting on all the protests which have happened during 2020 I wondered if in America today are there now “Acceptable” and “Unacceptable” Revolutions?

“Acceptable” Behavior?

“Unacceptable” Behavior?Meme: Capitol Protesters, Jan. 6th, 2021


The last time the United States Capitol Building was “breached” by more than a handful of people was back in 1814, when a more powerful British Empire sought to stop the United States’ expansion to the West and block US trade with France…and, perhaps, re-colonize the country under Parliamentary Law – where the accused are presumed guilty and must prove their innocence. That a group of Conservative, Pro-American protesters “breached” the Capitol over 200 years later in an effort to preserve the integrity of our election process – and, our Constitutional Republic – by demanding the verification of questionable election results provides an interesting juxtaposition.

And, after comparing how certain Liberal groups which caused destruction in cities like Minneapolis, Seattle, Philly, Kenosha,  and 16 other states during 2020 at a cost of $1,000,000,000 to $2,000,000,000 (that’s “billions” of dollars) and harmed to innocent people were viewed and described compared to Conservatives involved in one protest at our Nation’s Capitol it’s should come as no surprise when President Trump told the protesters inside the Capitol and the Nation:

“You’ve seen what happens. You see the way others are treated that are so bad and so evil.”

And, as he’s been many times during his Presidency, he was right.
