Ep. 109: Democracy Under Siege

Heart & Home

06-01-2022 • 59 mins

Today marks the one year anniversary since the United States Capitol Building was attacked by Americans, jolting our democracy and this nation to its feet. It was unheard of. It was unimaginable. But those who witnessed it could only weep. Others tried to explain what they experienced. Today, we look back through the eyes of the camera lense, which aptly captured the fateful events of 1/6/2021. Lives were lost. Mistakes were made by the U.S. Capitol Police who were unprepared despite warnings from the FBI based on their monitoring of social media activity of people labeled as the Right, Neo-Nazis, Proud Boys, and the rise of hate crimes. Only in this instance, it does not involve Muslim extremists, which the FBI and subsequent administrations have been laser focused on since 9/11/2001 and ignoring the Right, Neo-Nazis and other decentralized militant groups in our nation who are willing to threaten government officials. Beware of disinformation in political discourse, especially during election years. Today, millions of people are still convinced there was fraud in the 2020 Presidential Election.
