“Both Sides” is a Misnomer

There’s no longer a “both sides.” There is the United States, a democratic republic, and a bunch of half-baked domestic terrorists who wanted to kill our lawmakers, did kill a police officer, and would have laid waste to our Capitol and claimed our country for the fascist.

I’m sick of hearing about “both sides,” because there is nothing relatively comparable about law abiding citizens guided by a Constitution and a Rule of Law and a bunch of riled up outlaws with no respect for our country or the concept of democracy.
