It just didn’t make sense, the storming of the Capitol last week by Trump supporters, which the angry, always hysterical media tells us was an “insurrection” led by the President himself – an attack on our nation’s symbol of democracy.
CNN shrieks at us that Trump’s speech before the assault inspired his followers to break through barricades, smash windows, attack Capitol police, trash hallways, even vandalize House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office, while scaring away our brave congressmen and women from the inner sanctum of the chamber floor where they were all set to confirm the election of Joe Biden for president.
In the ensuing chaos, a female Trump supporter, an Air Force veteran, was shot and killed by Capital police, and four other government employees died from unknown causes blamed on the riots.
Speaker Pelosi was so outraged she called for Trump’s immediate impeachment for the insurrection, despite his having ten days left on his term. She told 60 Minutes’ Leslie Stahl that Trump was a “deranged, unhinged, dangerous president. He has done something so serious that there should be prosecution against him,” vowing impeachment or invoking the 25th Amendment to remove him from office immediately.
But the violence didn’t make sense to many out in television land, or the 75 million people who had voted for him, or the hundreds of thousands of supporters who had come to Washington that day to protest election fraud that gave the presidency to brain dead Joe Biden.
Every Trump rally during 2020 had been a Love Fest for the Donald, with giant crowds gathering peacefully and reverently to hear him speak for hours on how the radical Dems were trying to take over the government and impose socialism on us all, and that we must fight them and restore America to economic greatness, which he was doing before the China pandemic and lockdowns hit.
They were flag-waving, MAGA hat-wearing patriots who loved the man with the blonde combover, and they never once displayed any anger or rage, only mild derision at the stupidity of the corrupt radical Democrats in Washington.
Leading up to the January 6, 2021 siege, Trump had called his supporters to Washington to show solidarity with the Republicans in Congress, and Vice President Mike Pence, who was preparing to block the certification of the election in key contested states (PA, GA and AZ) and ask state legislatures to vote again, instead of voting to certify Joe Biden as president. There were eight senators and 139 representatives who were prepared to sustain the objection to the results.
Hundreds of thousands of Trump supporters had come to Washington, D.C. that day, on from as far away as Montana and Colorado, every one of them believing the election was stolen, to bear witness with their beloved president before the rest of the city. But the media, except for FOX, did not cover the rally, or show the size of the crowds to the rest of the country, because as throughout this election year, they have a propaganda arm for the Progressive socialists and their leader, Barack Obama, who remained hidden inside his $8 million compound in Georgetown, D.C.
Barack’s loyal media, led by CNN, had worked arm-in-arm with the big tech companies – Google, Twitter and Facebook – throughout the election year, coordinating to both censure and demonize Trump and the Republicans, and hide the increasing dementia of Joe Biden from voters. They also kept everyone from knowing about Joe’s corrupt son Hunter, who had made millions from foreign governments selling access to his then vice-president dad.
When Trump spoke before the hundreds of thousands gathered on the Ellipse, waving signs that read “Stop the Steal,” the president said: “All of us here today do not want to see our election victory stolen by emboldened radical left Democrats, which is what they’re doing and stolen by the fake news media. That’s what they’ve done and what they’re doing. We will never give up. We will never concede, it doesn’t happen. You don’t concede when there’s theft involved…because if Mike Pence does the right thing, we win the election.”
But Mike never got the chance to make his case before the assembled members of Congress.
After the rally, small groups within the massive crowd started urging others to go to the Capitol building, then breach barricades, and storm the building, breaking windows and doors, to get inside and menacingly confront Capitol police and start trashing halls and offices.
The media went berserk. They sent their reporters to cover and film the storming of the capitol building, though not the rally, as if it was the storming of the Bastille. This was the same media that went MIA when rioters were burning and looting cities throughout the summer, causing $1 billion in damage, under the false flag of George Floyd.
Afterwards, a war correspondent, Michael Yon, who was there, told the independent, anti-communist news organization The Epoch Times – the only group which has reported on the massive election fraud – who said it was the anarchist group Antifa that “clearly led the attack.”
Yon has studied Antifa for many years, spending time with them in Hong Kong during that siege and later in Portland, as they destroyed that once beautiful city. He said Trump supporters had tried to stop them last week, recognizing who there were, saying “Don’t break anything. Show respect.” But Trump’s people were overwhelmed and unprepared. Some of the Antifa group carried shields and wore their trademark black masks.
Then came the video from a man named John Sullivan, a videographer and founder of “a group for racial justice and police reform,” (just like BLM) who posted a video on YouTube Jan. 7 that shows him entering the Capitol building in Washington with a group of Trump supporters and “possibly others” on the previous day.
He’s heard on video encouraging others on and convincing Capitol police to let the trespassers through at several impasses.
This is the same John Sullivan who posted a tweet on Dec. 28, saying: “An armed revolution is the only way to bring about change effectively.” Then, on Jan. 2, four days before the Capitol siege, he wrote in a tweet: “[Expletive] The System – Time To Burn It All Down. #blm #antifa #burn #[expletive]thesystem #abolishcapitalism #abolishthepolice #acab #[expletive]trump.”
When the rioting stopped and the hallways and chambers cleared, members of congress returned to the floor, but many had been so intimidated by the mayhem that the vote to return the election results to the states died a quick death.
Nancy Pelosi quickly called for Trump’s impeachment, despite his officially having only 10 days left.
CNN’s Jake Tapper went further, calling Trump the true enemy of the people. “The mob, by trying to intimidate, threaten, or even kill the vice president and members of Congress, who were counting the electoral votes, that mob was, in turn, loved back by Trump,” Tapper leered angrily into the camera.
The rest of the media piled on, chanting in unison for the blonde scalp of the man still in the Oval Office, calling what he did sedition – inciting people to rebel against the authority of the state, which he most certainly did not. But the media hounds were cut loose and out for blood.
Then the big tech companies jumped in. Twitter suspending his account indefinitely, which was illegal, but they didn’t care. They were under the direction of Barack and his Progressives, who would cover for them once Biden got in.
Then the purge of other Trump supporters began, under the guise that they were also guilty of sedition because they had supported Trump and his lies about election fraud. The sedition became anyone who had sided with Trump on election fraud. Senators Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz, who had led the “stop the steal” movement in Congress, had their Twitter accounts blocked. The book published Simon and Schuster cancelled a book contract it had with Hawley.
The Progressives went to giant corporations – Marriott International, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Commerce Bankshares, J.P. Morgan – who said they would suspend donations to members of Congress who objected to the certification of the Electoral College on January 6. Facebook removed all content that mentioned “Stop the Steal” on its pages. Within two days, Amazon, Facebook and Google banded together to banished Parler, a website that hosted conservative “free speech” thought, from its pages and platforms, essentially killing the fast-growing company.
The storming of the Capital had done its job. Trump was now an insurrectionist who must be impeached so he could never run for president again. Conservatives across the board were demonized as Trump enablers and their speech must be shut down. Now the Progressives would have no political obstacles as they controlled the Oval Office and Congress and had free reign to continue Barack’s mission to dismantle capitalism with Green New Deals; flood the borders with immigrants and take down the white middle class with universal health care.
Just look up the Reichstag fire, on February 27, 1933, when the home of the German parliament in Berlin burned, precisely four weeks after Adolph Hitler was sworn in as Chancellor of Germany. Hitler’s government had charged that Marinus van der Lubbe, a Dutch council communist, was the arsonist, and blamed the fire on communist agitators.
The day after the fire, the Reichstag Fire Decree was passed. The Nazi Party used the fire as a pretext to claim that communists were plotting against the German government, though years later archived evidence showed the arson had been planned and ordered by the Nazis as a false flag operation to eliminate their political opposition and consolidate their power. The fire was seen as a pivotal moment in the establishment of Nazi Germany.
Perhaps we will look back and see the storming of the Capitol as pivotal in the establishment of a Progressive America, and the end to democracy.
