"Rather than drawing the right lesson from these failures—that security measures should be calibrated to actual threats—House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Capitol Hill security overreacted, egged on by excitable cable news pundits and Democratic partisans eager to portray President Donald Trump’s 74 million voters as “domestic terrorists.” Virtually overnight, the Capitol and National Mall transformed into a so-called “Green Zone” protected by no-scale fencing, razor wire, and 26,000 soldiers. These security measures were plainly disproportionate to the threat—indeed, they would have been disproportionate even if another violent mob had in fact attempted to disrupt the inauguration. With the inauguration behind us, the Capitol should return to normalcy." https://redstate.com/brandon_morse/2021/01/27/tom-cotton-blasts-dems-for-maintaining-troops-at-the-capitol-despite-there-being-no-credible-threat-n317229

Totalitarian politics. The complete absence of any sense of empathy for those outside that political sphere. Approval of a mob amplified by social and legacy media. Cold cash. It is hard to think of a more potent means of attack on that vital building block of civil society, the nuclear family, than creating fear and distrust in every interaction between parents and children. https://redstate.com/streiff/2021/01/27/317214-n317214
