Letter: This was an attack from within

Posted

What took place at our nation’s capital last week was an attack on our country and Constitution from within. It was another 9/11 moment perpetrated not by foreign terrorist but from American citizens acting as domestic terrorists, thugs and criminals.

This should be no surprise to anyone, as it has been building for the past four years and was supported by none other than our commander-in-chief and members of Congress, all who should be held accountable and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. They took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States “against all enemies, foreign and domestic,” and they failed miserably.

As citizens, we all have the right to free speech and expression of our own opinions. What took place in our capital this week was simply a distortion and abuse of those rights.

We can only hope that God will once again Bless America and deliver us from the evils of the Trumps, Cruzs, Hawleys, Giulianis and all those self-serving individuals with similar interests of only promoting themselves with little or no regards for our country or constitution.
