King Louis XVI: Is this a revolt?Source.
Duke de La Rochefoucauld: No sire, it’s not a revolt; it’s a revolution.
I think it's a revolt. It may not be a full-fledged revolution, but it's heartening to see Americans behaving like, well, Americans and not allowing politicians to dictate their lives. Hopefully it will have some lasting effects and we'll find a little more personal freedom spine after this.

What a beautiful sight.
One more quick take. Governor Whitmer of Michigan made this claim to that premier toady to the Elite, Jake Tapper, about the militiamen protesting her tyranny.
“Some of the outrageousness of what happened in our Capitol this week depicted some of the worst racism and awful parts of our history in this country,” Whitmer in response to questions from host Jake Tapper. “The Confederate flags and nooses, swastikas and the behavior that you’ve seen in all of the clips, is not representative of who we are in Michigan.”I dunno, man. I watched a whole bunch of raw videos of the events and I didn't see any rebel flags or nooses. If there were swastikas, it was a finger pointed at her, not indicating support for any other führer.
It tells you everything you need to know that Tapper didn't push back on the Confederate flag references. The stars and bars in Michigan? Really? The claim was instantly recognizable as the preferred spasmodic reflex of the left when they're criticized. It's no wonder that Jake didn't question it as most of the press are nothing more than lickspittles for the progressives. In any case, had there been a rebel flag or two in the bunch, you still couldn't have made the case for that particular revolt being race-based.
All the same, RACISM! is the favorite shriek of the Elites. Since they're not very clever, one can hardly expect them to find a new line of attack. That one has a ways to go before they realize that it's empty of meaning.
