Just, fuck Trump for not conceding, and for whipping up his cult to the point where this is what happens.

Imagine being shocked that greed, corruption, and abuse of power is being used in politics.
Ethics and morality are for the weak and spineless, and leads to a doomed failure in any industry.
The media is a tool used by the two big political parties to fund propaganda, and the people who consume it are the sheep being used to fuel the continuing partisan divide.
Time for compromise is over, time to end the reign of corrupt politicians on all sides of politics and their crony capitalist bourgeoisie buddies through force.
