All over the land today. Thankfully, the long-dreaded militia demonstrations in DC and all fifty state capitals never quite panned out today. There were a few half-hearted, poorly attended events here and there, but on the whole, there was, as Herman's Hermits sang, a kind of hush all over the land today.
Obviously, when twenty-thousand National Guard troops are bivouacked at the Capitol and various state police and National Guard units are deployed at state capitals, the tough-talking wannabe warriors punk out. One of the most vocal proponents of armed insurrection on social media purported to be a retired Lieutenant Colonel but turned out to be a schmuck in Texas who never served the public in any capacity... proving once again that righties love stolen valor more than anything. An armed insurrection against the Big Battalions is a non-starter among the tough talkers, though the typical 'lone wolves' might show up.
On January 6th, the MAGA Morons flew, like Stupid Icarus, too close to the sun, and a lot of them are in, in technical terms, Deep Doo Doo. The general consensus among temporarily chastened right-wingers was that today's planned uprisings were a trap set by the Feds.
My sincere hope is that the 6th was an anomaly, a failure that will make mass-scale right-wing demonstrations untenable for the near future. I have no doubt that there will be continuous low-scale violence, analogous to The Troubles, but the cynic in me notes that such a situation wouldn't be all that different from the undercurrent of gun violence that has plagued this nation for decades.
