The 25th Amendment Won’t Fix Everything
Rosanne Boyland, a resident of Kennesaw, Georgia, was one of those who died during Wednesday’s riot at the Capitol. Brother-in-law Justin Cave called for the 25th Amendment in a recent interview:
“It is my own personal belief that the President’s words and rhetoric incited a riot last night that killed four of his biggest fans and I believe that we should invoke the 25th amendment.”
I’m saddened by the deaths of all five individuals at Wednesday’s riot. I’m saddened that so many people could believe so many lies. I’m saddened that it was so easy to whip the crowd into a mob.
Ms. Boyland made a decision to travel to the capital as did the others. We’ve now seen what conspiracy theories and denying facts can bring about. Yes, the guy in the White House incited it, but every individual made a conscious choice to join the mob or not. That decision is what killed Ms. Boyland.
Meanwhile, Trump watched the riot from his safe space, denigrating his supporters as “low class” and “white trash“. That vile, despicable excuse for a human being is what Roseanne Boyland gave her life for. That’s the saddest thing of all.
