Houston Peace & Justice Center (HPJC) Board of Director David Atwood spoke on the reasons for the January 6th Capitol insurrection.
David Atwood on insurrection
A few days ago David Atwood gave a very eloquent expose on the state of the nation at our HPJC board meeting. He also spoke about why January 6th occurred. He subsequently wrote the piece titled “My thoughts about the underlying factors leading to January 6.”
First, the Republican Party allowed an unqualified man like Trump to become its candidate for President. Political parties should always pick someone who cares deeply about the citizens of the nation and the welfare of the nation itself.
Trump obviously did not meet these criteria. And then many Republicans supported Trump when his egregious behavior became obvious as President, as when they refused to support his impeachment. Why did they do this? I think it was because of their own desire for power and money. They put their own interests before the interests of the American people and the nation itself.
