Compliance Led to This Moment

Our democracy fell because we kept hitting the snooze button when the alarms were blaring in our ears. The Republican Senators who continue to be complicit to the demands of Trump, his supporters who blindly follow his orders, tech companies who didn’t regulate misinformation, White Supremacist groups who backed-up Trump, Russia interference with our elections, Republicans who were too spineless to get Trump impeached and the list can go on. What occurred yesterday was no accident. The Capitol Hill building opened its doors up to racism, to bigoted, and to hatred.
