By Lawrence Pfeil, Jr.
TheOUTfront was conceived in reaction to the outcome of the 2016 Presidential Election as a way of lighting a candle in the darkness to come. When it launched the following January, this was one of our first posts.
The day the 45th President of United States was inaugurated; this was our entire post.
That summer I took a long break to reconsider the future of theOUTfront for reasons both personal and professional. Then in August, the “Unite the Right” weekend happened in Charlottesville; Heather Heyer was killed, and 19 others were wounding by a white terrorist; and the President said, “there were very fine people on both sides.”
“If you’re not outraged, you’re not paying attention.” – Heather Heyer,
Those were her last words on Facebook, and these were my first words back with renewed outrage.
What I never imagined was on the fourth anniversary of theOUTfront, is having witnessed a treasonous insurrection incited and encouraged by the President of the United States aimed at our nation’s Capitol where his Vice-President and the Congress were in joint session.
Donald J. Trump is responsible for a failed coup of the US Government by his delusional MAGA supporters and the seditious Republican enablers in Congress.
If a picture is worth a thousand words then these speak volumes about what happened; what went wrong; the white privilege shown in responding to the terrorists; and those still supporting Trumpism and the sedition that occurred yesterday.

A few things that need to happen immediately:
Trump must be removed from office

The self l-proclaimed “real patriots” storming the U.S. Capitol. More like “real terrorists” if you ask me.

Trump likes to compare himself to Lincoln

The response by law enforcement to our Capitol being looted by homegrown terrorists compared to peaceful Black Lives Matter demonstrators in DC last summer is shocking and obvious.
Where are the rubber bullets? Tear gas? And aren't these folks the ones who say you shouldn't 'resist' the police? https://t.co/1CKF5wWVC2

When the catastrophic security failure which allowed the Capitol to be breach is fully investigated, one can only hope the FBI looks directly at the Capitol Police who it appears may have aided and abated the Trump terrorists.

Lest you think terrorists hyperbolic…

We now know why the call for additional law enforcement didn’t come sooner when the lives of the VP and the entire Congress and their staff were at risk. The coup attempt staged by Trump’s terrorist, sedition squad was cause for a viewing party at the White House.
Lock up these seditious MFers https://t.co/lTFjgVjdfo

But even after his own life was threatened for hours by seditious terrorists at the Capitol, Josh Hawley continued his baseless objections to certifying the election of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.
Do you this photo?
This is Senator Josh @HawleyMO.
Do you see what he is doing just before the riots?
This is the same man who FABRICATED a story about Antifa attacking his family and home a few days ago. https://t.co/rNaSOUGVbu

God Help America…
We made this pre-election, thinking that we’d never have to release it.
