According to fans, social media users and international media, a 1996 episode cannot be separated from the storming of the Capitol on January 6 this year, in which Trump supporters briefly annexed the seat of the United States Parliament in anger over the presidential election. .
Something similar happened in 1996, but on TV. In the episode “The Day the Violence Died,” a mob stormed the Capitol with guns at the ready and American flags. The similarities are striking.
At least, from a small scene. The episode is also about an amendment to allow more police violence to deal with ‘flag burners’. The amendment passes, a mob storms the Capitol. So much for the similarities.
This time, no brilliant predictions à la Donald Trump’s presidency that predicted the series, or diseases like Ebola or Corona. Or right? Followers point to a second ‘prediction’ on November 1, 2020. It showed unrest around the inauguration of the new president, with burning cars and chaos in the imaginary town of Springfield from the series. Civil war, fans say. It must erupt in full force on January 20 next. And The Simpsons are never wrong …
Much more precise ‘predictions’ about the Capitol storming in which a shaman-like figure with a bond around the neck and horns on his head – see below – turned out to be examples of good photoshop.
