The worst enemies, in the minds of MAGAloons, are the betrayers of "the Cause".
In their minds, the Dems are just a nuisance. The Traitorous RINOs, though...
Authoritarians and their enabling mob always go after the ones in their own ranks once they've thought they've won. VP Pence was in more danger on Jan 6 than others in the capital, because the danger to him came not only from the crowd, but from the insurrectionist co-conspirators in the government who were there to force him to act out their plan. If he didn't do what they wanted him to do, him being dead and an excuse for Martial Law was a probable plan B.
