The history of America (not the contradictory narrative of various enemies from within) is a study of a young nation with a modern series of events (as compared with the empires of the past that ruled the world with their own conflicted senses of empires) and began with conflicted sympathies from people that desired to escape the autocratic and cumbersome methods of governance. A revolution (not the rebellious type like that of France or Russia and its Soviet offspring such as in China - a former empire itself) accomplished much for America in its search for personal liberty due to the moral and spiritual basis of the truth the founders sought. Revolution from a Marxist perspective does not share that moral search for personal liberty.
Prior to America's launch, the same malefactors' ideology was in the background trying to compromise that search for freedom in America; and that is what has survived from then until now. This is what the 'cancel culture' (same ideology that formed in the Bolsheviks of the Soviet rebellion) seeks to reimpose, using the breach of security at the Capitol as a counterrevolution to the original revolution.
While delusional, be careful not to characterize this as anything less than a clever scheme to get uneducated Americans to form in the same mob mentality that brought down France, Russia and others in the modern age of rebellion. The main problem now is that the weaponization of the process will bring down more than anyone realizes; even the perpetrators have no clue where this will end up, not for stupidity, but ignorance of pride, the same pride of fallen empires that stretches back into the history they teach no more.
