Because they lack an Affirmative political Vision, Do Far-Right movements fetishize Violence as the premier form of Civic Participation.?
The far right embraces violence because it has no real political program. Trump's mob was both menacing & ridiculous, dangerous & utterly delusional. On one hand, there was an absurdist quality to many participants: conspiracy theorists, neo-Nazis, militia members, fans of animal pelts. Yet Trump's cosplaying revolutionaries were not playing at all, leaving five dead and dozens wounded. Some said they were intent on genuine violence: "We will storm the government buildings, kill cops, kill security guards, kill federal employees and agents, and demand a recount," a user reportedly wrote on 8kun the day before the assault.
