The January 6 “hearings” are frightening, or they should be to average Americans. They are right out of the Communist play book. That is why you see the term “show trial”. It is used historically to refer to the series of trials put on by Stalin in the Soviet Union around 1937. They were done with great theater and attention of dramatic detail. They were widely publicized and made open to the public and the media. They were all circus and no justice.
Aleksnandr Solzhenitsyn goes into a lot of detail as he describes them. One of the things that stood out to me was this statement.
“The only witnesses heard were those of the prosecution. Defense witnesses were not permitted to testify.” p. 351You would wonder if he was talking about 1937 or 2022. Welcome the Amerika as morphed by the Democrats and Rinos. You may not be able to change the clown show but you can wake up and stay that way. Keep in mind that wake and woke are not the same thing.
