Right-wing populism in the United States
A day after US President Donald Trump visited the Texas border wall with Mexico as a distraction from events in Washington, DC, the FBI had rounded up more than 200 rioters, with more being captured every hour. As new information emerges, the gravity of the clear and present danger President Trump poses while he remains in office becomes more evident.
YouTube has removed a new video uploaded to President Trump's account for violating the company's content policies on inciting violence. The account has also been issued a "strike" and is unable to upload new content for at least a week. It's presently unclear exactly which video prompted the action on Trump's account, or what it contained.
The mob of Donald Trump supporters that stormed Capitol Hill in Washington, DC on Wednesday was no bolt from the blue.
Certain political leaders have succumbed to the sirens of anti-systemic rhetoric and inflammatory demagoguery that eventually mobilized the mob, which interrupted a joint session of Congress during which the Electoral College vote was to be certified.
