‘Am I watching CNN or Black Mirror?’
Yesterday saw Trump supporters storm Capitol Hill to protest the result of the 2020 election. The rioting saw the deaths of four individuals and a call for Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment.
Social media was full of people expressing their opinions on the chaos. The over riding feeling was one of anger at the different ways the white rioters were treated by the police in comparison to those engaging in the peaceful protests of BLM in summer.
And of course people also took to Twitter to make some memes about the siege. There’s no denying this is a grave and serious political situation, however people were making memes as a coping mechanism to try and handle the chaos they were seeing in front of them.
