A couple of days late, but still within the Heptad of the Insurrection
What if the insurrection* had succeeded? Maybe a security guard held a door open for a minute, and a mob of bloody-handed insurrectionists just walked in unarmed, laughing and taking selfies, claiming without evidence that there was corruption in Chicago and Joe Biden was a senile doofus. If our gallant Congress ran away, that would have left that one guy in the Indian suit as Speaker of the House, and as Speaker he could have called it for Trump.
Recall how things were in the Before Time: President Trump said mean things on Twitter, a lot! and good people wanted to de-fund the police. If the insurrection had succeeded, the wise and steady hand of President Biden would not now be guiding us, and a number of consequences would follow.
Trump would have caused inflation.
Trump, ignoring the generals, would have allowed the withdrawal from Afghanistan to degenerate into a costly, deadly, failure that brought the Taliban to power.
From malice or incompetence Trump would have forced Covid hospitalizations to a record high. Since Trump’s vaccine would have worrying side-effects and be only marginally effective, the teachers’ union would be out on strike.
Instead of a ground-breaking news-making wonder, the James Webb Space Telescope would be unable to keep the roads open, as Trump’s global warming snowed shut the interstate from Virginia to Pakistan.
If the insurrection had succeeded, the unrest in Krhazagirzistria would be Trunp’s fault, and good people would be in the streets chanting to de-fund the police.
That’s how things might be today if the FBI hadn’t stopped the insurrection, so
Always remember the sixth of Janember,
face-paint and selfies and, what?
I see no reason why insurrection
should ever be forgot!
