Insurrection in America: Open letter to Trump
Thursday, January 7, 2021, 8:44 am
Lee Duffield closely watching the elections in the United States, had no illusions about how Donald Trump would react to getting beaten. But watching rioters break into the Capitol Building in Washington, not too surprised, he decided to place some blame and penned this message to the man behind it all.

Donald Trump, Head of State, The United States of America
You disgust me.
In the early morning hours here I heard you provoking that crowd in Washington DC, openly lying that you won a landslide, giving them false hope, inciting them to go on to the capitol.
You behave as a delusional large old infant; they are saying in US commentaries you are “throwing the toys out of the pram”; as somebody born less than a year after you, I regret for your sake you did not get to make the same journey as me, of growing up over time.
Unfortunately, as is being clearly demonstrated, consequences of your failure in that regard are real and bad.
We have seen, as the incoming President, Joe Biden observed, not dissent or protest but insurrection.
He said it was “bordering on sedition”, recognising in his wisdom that you and your movement are still mostly into posturing, so far just “bordering”; waving the flags and guns but not at the barricades, not quite systematically grabbing at power, not forming a junta and murdering your opponents.
But you have been playing with fire, mobilising confused people allowed to have guns.
Many of them today, as you can clearly see on the live feeds – nothing ‘fake’ about it’ – are close to the kind of offence which, in your country, can get them executed.
With the floor of your parliament under occupation, there are guns, maybe bombs in back-packs, the representatives evacuated or locked in their offices, as your mob literally beats on the doors of the building; what if some weak-minded individual decides to re-play Columbine or Sandy Hook – commit a massacre of the representatives?
It is a reality.
Mr Biden said you needed to act like the President, and tell the mob on national television to stop.
What you came up with in your Twitter feed, hours too late, was weak as water: “They took it all away from us, from me, from you … a rigged election … so evil … but don’t play into their hands … Go home in peace.”
Get some counselling over your failure at the polls, stop being a cry-baby, grow up, shut up and, as you have less than a fortnight to go, just piss off.
