Democrats and accelerationists.
The former are pretty straightforward. The Democrats needed…
1. To put questions about the election to date
2. Criminalize political opposition
3. Justify broad censorship and suppression of conservatives
4. Bolster their position
All of that got done.
Accelerationists are a group that most conservatives are less familiar with. Broadly speaking, they’re people who want to ‘accelerate’ a social collapse and bring on whatever civil war and post-apocalyptic wasteland comes after it. At least in their minds. Some are traditional conservatives. Most are not. That includes everything from Neo-Nazis, assorted other Alt and Euro-Right types, all of whom were the media stars of the actual Capitol event, the Boogaloo Bois, who are somewhat libertarian, but go to BLM rallies and seem to align occasionally with Antifa, not to mention whatever Antifa were cosplaying as Trump supporters.
There’s a lot of overlap between all the accelerationists, whether they fit loosely on the Left or Right, because they share the common goal of taking down society, then going to war, and figuring out the rest later.
In practice, they help the Left.
This is the same pattern we saw in Charlottesville where Neo-Nazis, alt-righters, and assorted other fringe elements aligned with the media to undermine President Trump, giving Democrats material against him and against conservatives.
This time around they crawled into a legitimate conservative protest, hijacked it, and gave the Democrats even more material. And they’re fine with that.
Accelerationists want to bring everything down. And they’re starting with the conservative movement because it’s the linchpin of America. Take that down and the rest gets a lot easier.
