Some thoughts on the failed insurrection:
IF YOU WANT TO SEE HOW THE MOB AND LYNCHING ARE INTER-RELATED, NOTE THAT “#HANGMIKEPENCE” WAS TRENDING ON TWITTER. Filipinos were lynched and murdered in the Jim Crow parts of California in the 1930s. On Jan. 6, 2021, insurrectionists were looking for the vice-president whom they regarded as a traitor.
