The Citizen’s Role in Ensuring Accountability: On January 6th

I wish The Handmaid’s Tale showed more about how the U.S. was overtaken by Gilead.  I think it could help Americans more clearly see connections between seemingly unrelated events, and perhaps increase our sense of urgency around fighting fascism.  For example, it may seem unrelated to our daily lives, but the issue of accountability is key to how smooth or rough is the road to fascism.

Some attention, though hardly enough, is being paid to holding people accountable, at the highest level, in events that transpired at the U.S. Capitol on January 6th.  However, if Congress and the DOJ allow witnesses to blow off subpoenas regarding these events, insurrectionists will learn there are no significant consequences to attempts at overthrowing the U.S. government.  They will try again.  One day they will succeed.

Perhaps as citizens of the U.S., our role is to alert decision makers of our interest in seeing justice served.  #AccountabilityMatters  — LMO

“It has now been over nine months since the January 6 attack on the Capitol, and none of the key perpetrators – Trump, Bannon, Flynn, Stone, etc – have been held accountable. And now they are dodging and defying subpoenas! What the Democrats are showing is that you cannot fight hate speech with weasel words, and you cannot fight accelerationism with inertia. This whole gang is running out the clock – the GOP and the transnational crime syndicate that backs them.”  — Gaslit Nation
