6 months after January 6, the only thing Democrats take seriously is power
The fence around the Capitol is still in place. It has been going on for over six months.
“Jan. 6 was worse than September 11,” a guest and host agree on MSNBC, above a chyron accusing the GOP of trying to “rewrite history”. The segment “nails it”, exclaimed HuffPo.
In interviews with Vice, reporters cried. They said they couldn’t sleep anymore and were afraid to go to work. “I called the Capitol my girlfriend” an adult man said, fighting back tears.
Democrats attempted to launch a truth commission with unfettered authority and access to the records and communications of their political opponents. The riot, chanted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, “was one of the darkest days in our country’s history. “
Some of them told CBS that they had formed a support group and were currently in therapy. Another donated his blue suit to the Smithsonian Museum for posterity. Maybe others should be in therapy.
Meanwhile, raids on suspects continue, while some arrested months ago are still being held in solitary confinement. At the start of the investigation, all available FBI agents were reportedly assigned to the case, which is still ongoing. Six months later, they screamed that they had seized a Lego set from a man’s house.
As a regular consumer of this cringe-like panic pornography, you could be forgiven for not knowing that all the power of the FBI failed to unmask the suspicious-looking suspect of Antifa who posed home-made and deadly bombs to the Republican National Committee and the National Democratic National. Committee headquarters. He received almost no attention from Congressional Democrats or their media fixers. It’s funny.
You could also be forgiven for not realizing that only one person was killed that day. Her name was Ashli Babbitt, she was among the rioters, she was unarmed, and she was shot by an officer – although we still don’t know the officer’s name.
Corporate journalists don’t seem to mind this. Neither seem bothered by their role in spreading the lie that Constable Brian Sicknick was beaten to death with a fire extinguisher. Neither seems concerned with finding the suspects and instigators of months of national race riots that have killed dozens of innocent people, destroyed hundreds of millions of assets and have been hailed by Democrats.
Further, while a “bipartisan report released by senior Republicans and Democrats on the Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee and the Rules and Administration Committee” found that Capitol Police failed to protect the Capitol that day, and six months later CNN reports that they are still in disarray, the Capitol Police are actively extending their authority beyond the Capitol which they have failed to secure.
The six-month anniversary of the Capitol Riot not by Black Lives Matter shows how insecure the left is about today’s reality – and how serious they are about using it for their own ends policies.
It is not a simple mess that leads elected officials to lie about Sicknick without practically taking into account an active terrorist and the assassination of Babbitt. It’s not occasional nonsense that brings the full weight of the FBI down on a riot as many of the leaders of last summer’s deadly race riots, including those in the White House targeting Republicans, have remained unindicted or free. It’s not just a wacky note that we are inundated with daily updates on the toys seized from which suspect’s home while recalling the memories of those American men and women who died and gave their lives in the service of our country in September. 11, 2001.
Fear is an industry in politics. In Washington, fear wins votes, it hits money and it concentrates power. But it’s a starving thing: it requires fences, museum exhibits, and most of all daily headlines to keep going, or it fades away and is forgotten.
Why did this MSNBC guest claim that a riot was worse than 9/11? Because, he said, it gives “permission for people to pursue autocratic means.” By “people”, he does not mean people in power, but the targets of people in power; the targets of their fear campaign.
“Do you know what scares me the most? the host replied, “I’m not sure most of the … Democrats elected in Washington agree with us or are as scared as we are.”
We know she and her friends will do their best to change that. And fear is an industry that we really should be afraid of.
