The incredible thing is that the Trumpian Mob on 1/6/2021 made no effort to hide their faces while collectively committing an entire range of Federal crimes. I suspect they naively believed they would get top cover from Trump, perhaps in presidential pardons. Trump appears to have removed the possibility of this in his subsequent condemnation of their actions. Some remarked that they were making a revolution. This would be incredibly stupid with the Iwo Jima Memorial glowing across the river. Could anyone believe that the Pentagon, who conjured up the will to go ashore at Iwo, would let a mob make a revolution on the United States?
So, the fundamental question remains in my mind: Incredibly naive? Or profoundly stupid?
