Definitions from Oxford Languages

Make no mistake, Donald J. Trump committed sedition last night. No one should usurp the Office of the President of the United States to encourage the overthrow of the government; not even the President. That is what he did last night. Think of that.

This is an extremely dangerous moment. Be prepared. Vote. Vote early. Vote in person if possible. Vote by mail as early as possible. Carefully follow the directions on your ballot. Vote. Above all, don’t be discouraged by the spectacle on view and the threats spewed forth last night. Vote. It’s the first step in what is the vital process. Vote. Encourage Senators to reject choosing a Supreme Court nominee until after the election. Vote. Demand the new Justice, if seated, recuse herself from participating in any election connected decision. Vote.

A president who does not accept independent certification of the election; a president defeated at the polls who does not step down is not a legitimate president. Never in the history of our country have we not had a peaceful transfer of power. It is what distinguishes us; it is American to peacefully hand over the reins of power every 4 or 8 years. Donald Trump cannot wave an American flag or call for America to be great while he calls on the Proud Boys to “Stand by.”
