Listen up MAGA chuds, the Capitol is not your house. To all the pro-Trump extremists who stormed the Capitol last week claiming they were there to defend the integrity of their “house,” Carvell Wallace would like to offer some sharp words: “Well, bitch, it’s my house too!”

Wallace wrote about the sense of privilege innate to the seditionist movement (“These people would not have been busting windows and shitting in Capitol hallways in the first place if their whole lives were not defined by a severe lack of consequences”), and why it’s high time the public stop trying to understand and empathize with the Make American Great Again ethos.

The real social danger is all the peaceful people, all the nice people, all the liberals and intellectuals and yoga-doers and positive-Instagram-vibers who are afraid of consequences for the “patriots.” Those are the people who stifle consequences, and those people are the bigger danger.
