“What are we supposed to do?”

That’s the question a pro-Trump rioter asked outside the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, January 6, 2021, as his fellow rioters disrupted the counting of electoral votes, and with ziptie handcuffs in their hands went looking for congressional leaders to lynch on the gallows they’d erected, and beat a policeman to death with a fire extinguisher and injured dozens more. This man, by the way, was “fighting with police” and the FBI is looking for him, according to CNN (story here).

Initial response: Not that.

Still can’t figure it out? Here’s what you’re supposed to do:

  • Use the brain God gave you.
  • Don’t believe false conspiracy theories.
  • If dozens of courts found no evidence of election fraud, you should conclude that election fraud claims aren’t true.
  • Regardless of what you believe, accept the official election results, like everyone else does, whether you like them or not.
  • Respect the fact the other side has the same right to win elections that your side does.
  • Respect the voters who don’t agree with you and didn’t vote with you. This time, there were more of them than you.
  • If you wish to protest, which is your right, do so peacefully and lawfully.
  • Don’t trespass, riot, break the law, or participate in insurrection.
  • Having failed miserably on every count above, take a good hard look at yourself in a mirror.
  • Grow up, and start thinking and acting like an adult.

Oh, and one more thing:

  • Turn yourself in. The FBI is going to find you anyway.

  1. How about: #

    1. Turn the dial off Fox opinionated reporting that doesn’t really provide news.
    2. Try thinking objectively rather than thinking in terms of political parties and ideologies.
    3. Put country above politics (this one is difficult for alt-righties. Always politics above country and that is how we got to where we are. Now.
    4. Stop listening to conspiracy theories that are just that theories, speculations and rumors without evidence or truth.

    Accept the fact that you have been lied to, manipulated by propaganda. Accept the fact you acted irrationally out of emotion, without any evidence of stealing votes. Your were duped. Where was the evidence? There wasn’t any. Accepting stories on blind faith is just blind faith with no documents. There is no case.

    Accept what you cannot change.
