Words matter. Fellow Americans and the rest of the world watched as President Trump called for the large group of his supporters to “walk to the capitol” after implanting the thoughts of “You will never take back our country with weakness. We will never give up. We will never concede. We will not take it anymore.” Earlier in the day his oldest son, Don Jr., challenged sitting members of Congress that wouldn’t support his father by stating “We’re coming for you!” This wasn’t campaign rhetoric, these were threats, challenges, and ultimatums and they knew exactly what they were doing. They wanted insurrection. They wanted people to do their dirty work, and the people did.
