Going Back Over Shit

First, from 2015, a post about far-right terrorism that had this definition:

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) defines terrorism as “the unlawful use of force or violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives.”

What happened on January 6th was a terrorist strike at the heart of our government. Those who egged on the crowd, including but not limited to Donald Trump (senior and junior), Rudy Giuliani, Michael Flynn, Alex Jones, Ken Paxton are as guilty as any imam at a radical mosque.

But what I wanted to get to was reviewing a post from the day after the last election. I was wrong on quite a few things. But on the rise of Russian and Chinese influence around the globe and the rise of white nationalist hate groups, yeah, I had that right.
