Did he really incite violence, he called on people to march on parliament and be strong. Being able to march on parliament is the norm in all free countries and hopefully it always will be. Don't see where he told anyone to break the doors down and and bring along home made napalm!
I don't think trump has the media at all, most of the media seems to have been on his back from day one, often exaggerating and even making stuff up about him.
it suits me Trump has gone, I've loathed the bloke since he trashed a SSSI in Aberdenshire to build a golf course
But i have found it disturbing how one sided the media can be (even our own BBC). Are we all just being brainwashed ?
Until very recently the BBC have been very restrained in their accounts of Trump's crazy behaviour. He has made himself look a fool and any neutral media will reflect that, because it is just reality. It is impossible to not be critical with that sort of nonsense going on, day after day, week after week.
Trump was very aware of the type of people he was calling on.
Not only that but the fact there was going to be trouble was fairly widely known from reading the various threads on Parler.
As president of the USA a country that has vast amounts of tech surveillance I find it completely implausible he wouldn't have been aware of this.
OTOH I'm sorry Parler has gone, if you want to stare up the anus of humanity it was a good place to sit.
