Some reflections on what happened today in D.C.

I was at both the Stop the Steal rally outside the White House and the march to the Capitol. Although I stayed far away from the crowds at the Capitol, and I was way in the overflow area at the Ellipse, the sentiment from everyone appeared to be the same: we need to do something because we can’t keep living this way.

What if I told you that you don’t have a choice? There won’t be a civil war. There won’t be another revolution. All you’re going to get is more subjugation.

So many people seem to believe that we just can’t go on this way, that the government has to let people secede. Ha! People tried that already, and it didn’t work, and now they’re described as some of history’s greatest monsters.

Any kind of Biden-esque “reconciliation” is going to involve establishment GOP guys, like Kasich, and the Democrats will say, look, we reached out to you guys, and you wouldn’t accept it, and now you’re all crazy radical terrorists trying to form right-wing militias to overthrow a duly elected government.

Do you really think that after today, after the U.S. government killed a veteran*, that the government would ever let you you peacefully do your own thing?

No, the next however many years of American history is just going to involve the government taking away more and more of your rights, and you won’t be able to, or powerful enough, to do anything about it. And you know you’re just going to sit by and do nothing, because you can’t do anything.

*Edited to share new information about the woman killed

  1. Ashley,
    It’s hard not to be pessimistic, but Our God doesn’t lose battles. In fact when He intervenes it generally is in circumstances that are so bad that critics can’t deny the miraculous. Speaking of miraculous, you are for many of us that miracle,. We’ve followed from the platforms that banned you and are still following (although I wish you’d do more on Telegram). Keep fighting for us and never forget that many of us pray for you every day. You could also try moving to Texas. You have lots of friends here.

  2. The woman who died wasn’t 16. She was named Ashli Babbit and was a 14 year veteran of the USAF, where she served 4 terms as a high level security officer.

    The footage and pictures of her are terrible. May she Rest In Peace.

  3. I think you’re on point tbh, but I find some of this encouraging; the fact that there’s some fight left in the right, more than I thought (and certainly various conservatives being happy to grovel and disavow). Granted, none of this will change because of it, but at the same time none of this can last forever. Spengler comes to mind, though it’s a somewhat pompous quote:

    “We are born into this time and must bravely follow the path to the destined end. There is no other way. Our duty is to hold on to the lost position, without hope, without rescue, like that Roman soldier whose bones were found in front of a door in Pompeii, who, during the eruption of Vesuvius, died at his post because they forgot to relieve him. That is greatness. That is what it means to be a thoroughbred. The honorable end is the one thing that can not be taken from a man.”

  4. I have a glimmer of home that the left still values American exceptionalism over subjugation, and that once the election information war is over, they go back to business as usual. They know they are perceived as evil, but will still fight dirty as long as trump has a voice and can undermine the Democrats by calling the voting process illegitimate . Other countries won’t take us seriously with a prior President saying this, hence the continued info war
