Ian Seretse Khama, Opinion
January 6, 2021 will go down in American history as the day a power-hungry man sent an army of thugs to the headquarters of democracy to protest his election defeat.
The country, which bills itself as the world’s largest democracy, relinquished that title yesterday when amid the events and harmful words encouraged by the greatest tyrant of all, Donald Trump, four years of blatant disregard and contempt for the Constitution showed for the people and democracy sparked another attempt to stay in power. It is his legacy.
I was validated because I always hated this racist and his way of feeding his ego and who was supported by this diet cava imagine.
It only takes one person, as we have seen in many countries, to overturn years of democracy and stability to feed their huge appetites for greed and self-interest at the expense of the people.
At least, better late than never, some senior Republicans have condemned these actions. Those who do not work to end the tyranny within their own rulers are conniving, cowardly, and weak in character.
Trump is not the only leader today who has such selfish ambitions and is willing to overthrow law and order to achieve it. Trump is about to leave.
The countdown to January 20 has begun and cannot be reversed. The countdown has also begun for others like him, who resort to tactics like rigging to feed their inflated egos!
