Wild In the Streets

Lindsay Graham and Trump have taken the stance that they're doing the Justice Department and by proxy the American people a favor by alerting them to the possible violence that would ensure if the former president were brought to trial. They’re not going to be responsible for the behavior of Trump’s restless but devoted base. It sounds a like The Godfather
 “I’ll make him an offer he can’t refuse.” What’s so interesting is the act of dissociation--a feckless attempt to mollify or evade intent. What was Lindsay Graham thinking? Oh it’s fine if they have a show trial. It’s a free country. Let Merrick Garland do whatever he wants within the boundaries of the law? The fact is, there's no other reason that one sounds alarms, in the way that's being done, than to throttle. In fact, there may be occasional incidents like the one at the FBI office in Cincinnati, but it’s highly unlikely that there're going to be massive riots in the streets or even another January 6th. However dangerous, the Proud Boys and the Oath Keepers are the lunatic fringe and not as organized or effective as Organized Crime.
