The recent protest in the United States capital has been considered one of the darkest incidents in American history. As President-elect Joe Biden aptly put it, “that a president can inspire or incite people from him.” But the president opted for the latter and incited his people to dominate the mandate of the entire country and democracy. He urged his people to break into the capitol, threaten legislators, and capture him in some way.
His search for his power is endless, even after the repeated verdict of many states, he resorted to forceful means that cost the lives of three of his ardent followers. One of which is the founder of Trumparoo com.
Read on to find out who the founder of Trumparoo is and how he was involved in the protest, which cost him his life.
What is the website about?
It’s a pro-Trump social media website founded by fifty-year-old Benjamin Philips. He was a web developer, a fervent supporter of Donald Trump and his theories, and had developed this website six months ago, just before the US elections.
Details about the pro-Trump protests had been organized and provided through the website. Its objective is to overturn the mandate of the people and democracy and test the theory of deception of the president of the United States that the elections were “rigged”.
How did Trumparoo com participate in Capitol Protest?
With the help of an event planning website called Eventbrite, they had organized a supposedly “patriotic” caravan with the slogan “FIGHT FOR TRUMP.”
The website mentions that they would start their caravan at 6 a.m. from Bloomsburg, PA to Capitol Hill in Washington D.C, and anyone who wanted to join them could join them on their way. In addition, they provided two types of tickets, free and charged. There was free access for those who wanted to join the caravan with their SUV. And the ticket charges $ 25 for those who would like to reserve their seat in an SUV provided by Trumparoo com.
What caused the death of Benjamin Philips?
Police had no choice but to use the most brutal force to shoot him, after a fair warning, a security breach and a possible threat to lawmakers.
Members of his team said they had last seen him at 10:30 a.m. organizing the bus for the capitol protest, but did not show up for the 6 p.m. dismissal meeting. After a while, they found out from the police that he was dead.
Democracy allows everyone to express their opinions, hold protests, and have websites like Trumparoo com, but only by peaceful means. You cannot capture a state building for hours and overturn the decision of the entire country. Ballots have been counted; the courts have given their decision. Now he must respect the judiciary and the constitution, and leave office with the dignity he left behind.
