On Wednesday night the world watched in horror as scenes from Capitol Hill, the political heart of the United States of America, were broadcast live onto television. Upon encouragement from President Trump, a mob of armed fascists marched on the building; breaking in and occupying the House floor and the offices of senators. These terrorists paraded the Capitol building for hours, ceremoniously draping their American and Confederate flags from the balconies, before being (gently) escorted out by the police. I’m no fan of American politics, but I couldn’t shake the feeling that some final fortification had been destroyed. White supremacy knows no bounds and has rendered American democracy a joke.
