” As far as headstones go, ” the Cemetery Explorer said in a cool crisp voice to the group she was leading that night” it’s a little too over the top. Look at the carving, the epitaph, it’s a little sappy- like an overdone Valentine card. ”
The group of six who had been taking pictures up to that point put their cameras down and nodded in agreement, like they were supposed to.
One of the group stepped back from the knot of shamefaced explorers as they were led by Shelly Pincham to the next gravesite where they were about to be educated in what a headstone should look like and why this next headstone was worth paying attention to- unlike the Monstrosity by Hallmark they had just left.
The woman who had hung back looked up at the group and kicked at a little pile of leaves. She looked sadly down at the stone and said loud enough for no one to hear, ” Well. I thought it was pretty. Espeacilly the roses. ”
When Sally Pincham looked up to call her straggler over to the group, the woman was gone.
I watched the first of the January 6th committee hearings last night.
What surprised me is this- I watched Donald Trump and his fanatics loose their collective brain cell when the Election was called for President Biden. I watched them attack the US Capitol on Janurary 6th on TV and I have followed the stories about the Domestic Terrorists who were arrested and charged and their sentencing in the news.
I have seen, with the rest of world Donald Trump continue to drop the snake oil he stills sells drop by drop into the open and willing mouths of his fanatics every single day since then.
But what I was not prepared for, what surprised me , as I watched the hearings and saw the videos and heard the opening arguments was that I did not feelthe darkness and the absolute evil that Donald Trump and the Domestic Terrorists who attacked the Capitol that day had literally brought to not only the ” People’s House ” in DC but Trump also brought that evil into homes where we eat and sleep and raise our families too.
On that day, nowhere was ‘safe’.
Supporters of Donald Trump, one carrying a bust of Trump, climb the walls of the United States Capitol in Washington, D.C., Wednesday, Jan. 6, 2020,
One of the goals presented in the hearing last night shows that the Terrorists and White Supremacists had on January 6th was to Hang the Vice President of the United States for not giving Donald Trump what he wanted.
Make no mistake, there is testimony where it becomes clear Donald Trump was fine with that. In Trump’s mind that action would have been justified.
That horrific fact put into the larger picture of what happened that day as presented in the hearings, it becomes clear that Donald Trump and his fanatics- and by extension the fanatics who still support him quietly because it makes them appear ‘reasonable’ support the same cause.
Give them what they want or face execution.
They are willing to go there- every last Trump Supporter- from the White Supremacists, to the Domestic Terrorists to Ma and Pa sitting on their front porch feeding you cookies and gently trying to reason you into understanding why they are supporting a thug like Donald Trump who was fine with death threats being made against his Vice President and the murder and brutal assaults of law enforcement officers.
I write about evil and corruption and monsters and I must say, I think I’m good at it. I thought that I could spot a monster a mile away and evil a half mile away.
On January 6th 2021 I watched monsters attack the Capitol and I had no idea how dark that day really was and how very close I came to seeing the United States Government fall into the hands of the most vile and corrupt human being to walk the face of the Earth in my lifetime.
So this is what the author of monster stories thinks needs to happen:
Donald Trump needs to be held accountable for the actions that he planned and executed. The Hate groups who served as his Army need to go to Jail and they need to rot there.
No ‘parole’ no cutie ankle monitors and home arrests and promises to be good forever and ever.
They need to go to Jail for the rest of their unnatural lives- and I say that because I don’t support the death penalty.
And as for Donald Trump?
He needs to join them, but most important of all he needs to be unmasked and called out for what he is.
He is a monster, his actions were monstrous and when he shows his face in public he needs to be recognized for that and the evil he brought to every single door in America that day.
