Acting Against Your Own Interest

Domestic terrorists and right-wing racist thugs showed their love for Trump by violently attacking the Capitol building on January 6, 2021 to stop President Joe Biden’s presidency from being certified. Now hundreds of them have been charged, some with very grave crimes. Yes, in their efforts to please Trump, they acted against their “own” interest and their families’ interests. Many of these Domestic terrorists and Trump enthusiasts will receive serious jail and prison time.

The FBI, with evidence in hand, is in pursuit of many of these Trump lovers. They are now criminals, fugitives running and hiding from law enforcement officers. Rioters were bamboozled and fell in love with the “Big Lie” that President Biden and the Democrats rigged the 2020 presidential election and had committed voter fraud.

Donald J. Trump, Donald Trump Jr., and Rudy Giuliani, fed rioters misinformation about stolen elections and directed them to inflict mayhem on the Heart of U.S. Democracy filled with elected officials. How was it that no one in these right-wing domestic terrorists’ spaces was not wise enough or emotionally intelligent enough to save them from themselves?

Hence, they were convinced, by people lurking in the shadows, to attack their government. I can’t imagine what they and their families are feeling at this very moment. For sure, because of Trump, many of those who violated the Capitol building have become criminals. Like other criminals, they will lose their freedom, their right to carry their guns, and, more importantly, lose their very right to vote.

Every person in the United States and worldwide must learn from this horrendous lack of judgment by the Capital’s rioters. They went to the Capitol Building on January 6, 2021, with comfortable lives and supreme privileges. Many had/have well-paying jobs, kids in college, home owners, parents, and even grandparents. Now, because of the crimes they committed, they are facing an uncertain undesirable future.

In closing, the Capital attack that America and the world witnessed happened within a diabolical mad-man mind. We must all learn from this failure of far-sightedness, and we must excise a higher level of Emotional Intelligence. We must slow down and weigh the penalties related to our perceived and sometimes deceived actions. Remember, if you decide to proceed with your choices and causation, you will have to live with your consequences!
