The January 6 events are therefore looking less and less like an insurrection and much more like another deadly and ill-advised march on Washington, D.C., the 1932 protest of World War I “Bonus Army” veterans who had been denied the compensation that the United States federal government promised them for risking their lives in World War I. Much like the January 6 Hobbits, the WWI Bonus Army vets were shot at, a few were killed, and the remainder were trampled on by horses and troops led by future Gens. Douglas MacArthur and George Patton who went on to glory in WWII.
Did the planners of the Hobbits March on Mordor event not see that the Hobbits were walking into a potential trap? Did they care? It is hard to believe that the people who organized this event did not anticipate some sort of trouble for the Hobbits. Perhaps that is why Trump officials are so vigorously attempting to prevent disclosure of Trump’s January 6 records. As the facts slowly come in regarding January 6, the whole event now looks more like a cynical misuse and abuse of innocent Hobbits than it does an insurrection.
Regardless, it is clear that the January 6 insurrection is fiction and The Bonus Army 2.0 is reality.
