Washington, January 7: History repeats itself on Thursday, January 7, 2021, after nearly 200 years. In Washington, the capital of the United States, protesters attacked Capitol Hill, the country’s parliament. The protesters are supporters of Donald Trump and believe that Trump’s defeat in the presidential election was due to a scam. The US Congress has not been attacked in the last 200 years. Earlier, the US Parliament was attacked in 1814; But it was done by the British, not by their own people.
The United States was previously ruled by the British; But after independence, America was trying to stand on its own two feet. At that time, in 1812, the United States had a war with Britain. During the same war, in 1814, British invaders and protesters rioted in Washington. They also tried to seize Capitol Hill, the US Capitol.
On August 24, 1814, the British invaders set out to destroy Washington. Capitol Hill was one of the most beautiful buildings in Washington. The building was targeted by British intruders. They set fire to the furniture in the building. The fire then spread to the entire building. The building was completely destroyed in the attack.
After Capitol Hill was engulfed in flames, all British protesters marched on the White House, the residence of the President of the United States. They attacked there too. The war between Britain and the United States began on 18 June 1812 and lasted until about 1815. The outcome of this war was not on anyone’s side. So in the end, the two countries reached an agreement to end the war.
According to the Times of India, there was a small attempt to attack Parliament in 1998; But it did not look like a war. A psychiatrist shot dead two security officials at a Parliament checkpoint. However, one of the officers managed to catch the psychiatrist as he managed to injure him.
Two hundred years of history have been repeated since protesters came together and attacked Parliament; But this time, it is the Americans, not outsiders, who have attacked Parliament. The attackers are supporters of incumbent President Trump. Trump has lost the recent presidential election, and Joe Biden of the Democratic Party is set to become the new president. Biden will be sworn in on January 20.
Trump supporters, however, do not approve of Biden’s victory. In this election, Trump has been accused of vote rigging from day one. So the atmosphere is hot. Trump’s objections also delayed the counting of votes in many places; However, local authorities announced that Biden had won. Yet Trump has maintained his hegemony, with his consistent statements that his protesters are now being accused of taking to the streets.
