Acquittal, again. So what's next?

Democrats and their media allies had hoped to normalize political show trials with the latest Trump impeachment. The odds of it happening were slim, but Democrats pushed the lie it would, and many in media played along.

Fact is, most Americans were unimpressed. Few followed the trial. Local newscasts I saw (which covered other major national stories) didn't cover it or only gave scant mention. Only a sliver of the population bothered to watch any of the live telecasts.

Most everyone knew is was a shoddy scam doomed to failure.

But media wanted you to think just the opposite, and will likely now use the latest Trump acquittal as an excuse to more broadly target Republicans the way it's targeted Trump the past four to five years.

Squandering the last gasps of government legitimacy

Deceptively edited video. A graphic with an inflated capitol riot death toll. These are the sort of things Democrats believe they need to prosecute Trump? Welcome to the latest round of bad actors circus, another misadventure in squandering what little is left of the legitimacy of this now Democrat-controlled government.

The strategy and tactics seem familiar

Democrats now have troops guarding Washington DC, have erected a fence around the Capitol, and require House members to pass through metal detectors before being allowed on the floor of the House. Democrats are embarking on screening the military in search of those with political views that don't sync with the "progressive" agenda. Our southern border is being opened up, hurdles that have kept down illegal immigration for the past four years are being removed. Don't worry they say, it's all for a better America.

Meanwhile, social media mega corps continue to isolate or ban from their platforms those who dissent.
How do you react to things like this, because each day seems to bring a new surprise, a new "emergency"?
"Each act, each occasion, is worse than the last, but only a little worse. You wait for the next and the next. You wait for one great shocking occasion, thinking that others, when such a shock comes, will join with you in resisting somehow. You don’t want to act, or even talk, alone; you don’t want to ‘go out of your way to make trouble.’ Why not?—Well, you are not in the habit of doing it. And it is not just fear, fear of standing alone, that restrains you; it is also genuine uncertainty." - They Thought They Were Free
