Trump as king cobra

Posted

To the Editor:

Just as the king cobra lies low and waits to strike, ever rising slowly, steely eyes holding the victim transfixed, Trump like the king cobra, rose up to full ugly height and struck! Like that cobra’s stare, he has encouraged and incited for the last four years those thugs who heeded his call and moved to take over the country. Not only in D.C. but also in other state capitals, those thugs were armed with semi-auto weapons and had explosives as well. Make no mistake this was planned and executed on social media platforms.

The blame is not only Trump’s, but also the GOP Senators and Representatives who gave him free rein on every affront to our rule of law and helped desecrate our constitutional norms. The Congressional members along with Trump who committed sedition and insurrection deserve to be punished, along with the thugs who are now being identified in the news. The FBI will be calling on them shortly.

If those persons are not held responsible then this nation will face, again, these crimes. So if you don’t like the outcome of any election, or law, just change it by force. At some point, it will be the fall of our democracy.
