On Tuesday last week, the second impeachment proceedings against Donald Trump began in the Senate. We have heard tearful, harrowing stories of looting gangs of Trump supporters who “hunt” Congressmen and Senators.
We saw video footage of rioters scaling the walls of the Capitol Building.
It is becoming clear that the Democrats and some Republicans, many of whom have major opponents due to their impeachment results as early as 2022, want not only to blame Donald Trump for the Capitol Hill uprising, but also to prevent him from ever doing it again to run for office.
But this time something is different. It almost seems like they want to blame anyone who supports Trump a little
That is you, America.
Americans really should study their history and learn from it. Many democratic politicians and media have started persecuting Trump supporters and conservatives who blame them for the problems in our country. This is exactly what the NAZIs did to the Jews when they came to power.

Language should ignite
As usual, the constitution stands in the way of the democratic agenda. The impeachment process should never be used as an association to deactivate politicians we don't like.

During the first full day of the impeachment hearings, property managers played video and audio recordings of the January 6th events.
But instead of giving context to the audiovisual resources, they used sentences like this from Prosecutor Stacey Plaskett, a Democratic delegate representing the US Virgin Islands: "They did it because Donald Trump sent them on a mission."
Another from Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-TX): "On January 6th, Donald Trump left everyone in this Capitol for dead."
And in case inflammatory rhetoric isn't enough, Democrats are now being accused of selectively editing Trump's video telling supporters to protest "peacefully and patriotically" at the Capitol.
Trump defenders claim the video has been tampered with.
Sources say Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) told his fellow senators that their vote on whether or not to convict Trump was "a matter of conscience" and that senators contest the constitutionality of the process to continue to vote could condemn Trump.
Senators, you saw the evidence.

How did we get here?
Anyone can go online and Googgle, "Trump Impeachment," and find out what the mainstream media is saying, what the speaking minds, both liberal and conservative, are saying, and you can even find an event schedule that will come in handy at planning a watch party.
They know when to break out the fries and beer!
What you can't find is the answer to the most important question: what does it mean and how dangerous is it for America?
Americans have always argued and argued. It's in our collective DNA.
But ask anyone from any walks of life in America, "When did we get so divided?"
Nobody seems to have a good answer.
There have always been political parties with different ideas about how to do things, but only recently did a member of one party accuse another of attempted murder.
The political parties have always been wary of each other's candidates, but only recently we have accused them of being angry, not just because we disagreed with them, but because they just exist.
Even in our darkest times, Americans have come together. But will that even be possible?
Democrats insist that Trump supporters, which includes at least 74 million people who have cast at least one vote for Donald Trump, must somehow be removed from modern politics.

How do we harm America?
In his inaugural address, President Joe Biden spoke of unity and, on Friday, of treating people with respect. It remains to be seen whether Americans will respect one another.
But is this impeachment of a president who stepped down three weeks ago and has at least dubious constitutional origins and does not respect America? Does it harm America?
The constitution is a tough document. It has been attracted in every possible way for the past 245 years. It will likely survive, but we took its instruction and turned it into something it was never meant to be.
The manner in which impeachment has been applied can perfectly well be used as a weapon for existing parties or future parties.
Granted, the founding fathers did not specify what "high crimes and misdemeanors" are. We had to find out for ourselves. Perhaps they were overly optimistic about the intelligence of future Americans.
However, when the impeachment process is abused, a precedent is set that is difficult to return from. They accuse ours, we accuse theirs, and America is in a dangerous tug of war.
