Failed coup attempts are part of the process. Sometimes successful coups follow. The reactionary right in this country will learn from this experience.

Edit: This comment is not meant to make a moral comparison between the IRA and MAGA freaks. Strictly speaking in terms of tactics and effectiveness.
The IRA, at least, had a legitimate grievance that was not being addressed.
