 The first anniversary of the Rigt Wing, white nationalist, terror attack on the United States Capitol Building is closing in. The only recent event that it compares to its severity is the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack. There are many of you screaming right now about the difference in loss of life, and some who are clenching because the 2001 attack was carried out by foreign actors who had brown skin. What makes the January 6th attack darker and more disturbing?

September 11th, 2001 was an attempt to damage America and diminish its standing in the world. While its impact was huge and far felt, it was never destined to bring down America. January 6th, 2021 was an attempt to destroy America as we know it. Not only did it come perilously close to success on that day, the forces at play have not been curtailed. This anniversary then, is as much a rallying point for America's enemy within as it is a memoriam on what happened that day.

Supporters of the insurrection, not within the political elites of the right wing, mistake this as a movement about preserving the American dream and the America of "Happy Days". They have been groomed and mislead. They are not destined to share in the glories that the elites are dangling in front of them. Their choices they have come accustomed to are in doubt. Places like Vegas will be greatly diminished. Little luxuries that make being American an envious position in many places in the world will be the exclusive domain of the ruling party.

Far darker, this attack was intended to end America. The instigators are still committed to destroying America and she needs to defend herself.
