Jan. 6: Not in the prediction business

Not in the prediction business

Predicting is never an easy task.

But it gets even harder when that prediction must include an attempted insurrection at the U.S. Capitol building. Or rioters calling to assassinate Vice President Mike Pence. Or President Trump standing by as it all happened.

“I don’t foresee it being any crazier than it’s been.” The famous last words Kristin said on her weekly appearance on the Steve Scaffidi Show before the U.S. came the closest to civil war since, well, the Civil War.

The only people that could’ve predicted this violent attack were the ones online planning the attack months before it happened. They chose designated parking lots to act as a starting point for the raid, coordinated hotels to stay at, and most importantly how they would attempt to stop President Biden’s presidency.

Wisconsin’s Own

One of these planners even include a Wisconsin man Kevin Loftus, who smartly posted on Facebook the details of his participation in the Jan. 6 Capitol raid. If you want some online clout for trying to overthrow the government, is Facebook the smartest choice? Status Update: In Capitol!

Or Janesville, WI resident Michael Fitzgerald who faces a criminal complaint for being at the front of the initial Capitol raid. He was seen wearing a t-shirt reading “There will be a Wild Protest” across his chest. How’s that for predictions? Is Fitzgerald a time traveler or maybe, just maybe, was this a coordinated attack?

Another one of our fellow Wisconsinites Sen. Ron Johnson had his own thoughts on Jan. 6. He said the event was mainly a “peaceful protest” and that the idea people were trying to overthrow the government is a “false narrative.” It might be a good idea to hold off on those Spotted Cows before your next interview, Mr. Johnson.

We could’ve never seen an attack like this coming, and let’s hope it never happens again. This energy could be redirected to better things–how about storming Soldier Field?
