What happened was a black man was elected President -- twice.

Scared the bejeesus out of a bunch of white people. And a major ego-blaster. To protect themselves against having THAT happen again, they're willing to do pretty much anything.


Nailed it!

Racism runs deep in the crew that stormed the Capitol. And Donald Trump was a master at fanning the flames of racism without ever using the "N" word. But without racism, he never would have been elected president!

And look at the states that refuse to accept the fact that January 6th was an attempt to violently overthrow our government. RED, RED, RED....

Of course there are other factors involved. I'll respond again.
