Let’s correctly define our term, shall we? Per Merriam Webster….
Insurrection: “A usually violent attempt to take control of a government.”
So January 6 was absolutely not an insurrection.
The only violence committed – was AGAINST the alleged insurrectionists (Rest In Peace, Ashli Babbitt).
And I remain unaware of any vegan plan for taking over and running the government that our beloved leader Horned Hat Guy had.
You know who also knows January 6 wasn’t an insurrection? The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
FBI Confirms There Was No Insurrection on January 6 – August 20, 2021
FBI Finds No Evidence Capitol Riot Was Coordinated – August 20, 2021
How does the FBI know January 6 wasn’t an insurrection? Because their guys and gals were all up inside January 6.
But DC remains steadfastly impervious to facts. And never allows facts to get in the way of a good beating.
January 6 Committee Issues Sweeping Records Requests to Federal Agencies – August 25, 2021
January 6 Committee Recommends Trump Adviser Bannon Face Contempt Charges – October 19, 2021
If you know how a calendar works, you’ll note that all of those January 6 Committee actions – were committed AFTER the FBI officially announced the January 6 Committee is nothing but a very bad joke.
Meanwhile, DC has ignored a year-plus worth of real – and deadly and very costly – insurrections. And, in fact, many decades of political violence of all sorts.
Because all of those political violences – have been committed by Leftists.
If the Left can expand the definition of “insurrection” to include people with zero plans for power being allowed by police into a government building?
We can apply a much narrower definition – to people with long-standing Leftist plans for power attacking and occupying government buildings. And we mean LONG-standing Leftist plans.
And now, a partial recap of the recent instances….
Protesters Burn Government Building During Riot in Portland – August 19, 2020
Portland ICE Building Set on Fire During Riots – April 11, 2021
Five Charged with Damaging Las Vegas Federal Buildings During BLM Protest – September 17, 2020
And even the very day before the January 6 fake insurrection – the Left yet again got much closer to a real insurrection.
Antifa Rioters Vandalized Federal Buildings in Philadelphia, Cops Say – January 5, 2021
The January 6 double standard remains ridiculous.
“(I)n most instances the radicals in Black Lives Matter and Antifa were allowed to get away with their heinous actions last year, even being treated as heroes by the mainstream press and Democrats – some of whom, like Harris and the Biden campaign, promoted their bail funds.”
Which brings us to late last week. When the following happened – the very latest in a VERY long line of Leftist violences.
“A demonstration in Washington, D.C., against fossil fuel projects turned violent Thursday when climate change protesters stormed the U.S. Department of the Interior building and occupied a space inside the federal building for hours….
“Climate activists took over the space held by the Bureau of Indian Affairs for roughly four hours. This was reportedly the first time since the 1970s that the Bureau of Indian Affairs in Washington, D.C., was occupied. The Indigenous Environmental Network (is) one of the organizers of the People Vs. Fossil Fuels demonstrations.…”
How very insurrection of them. Unlike on January 6 – the cops weren’t inviting in these people:
“Police and protesters clashed during the confrontation. The police reportedly used Tasers in order to control the crowd attempting to bulldoze their way into the Department of Interior building.”
We are now nearly ten months into the totally bogus January 6 Committee sham show. Is DC ramping up anything remotely similar into this latest, actual attempted insurrection?
Of course not. Don’t be ridiculous.
We surely are.
And, of course, the Left getting away with it this time – means there will indubitably be a next time.
Because why would the Left stop engaging in violences – if nothing happens to them when they engage in violences?
Why Charges Against Protesters Are Being Dismissed by the Thousands – November 19, 2020:
“Prosecutors declined to pursue many of the cases because they concluded the protesters were exercising their basic civil rights.”
First Amendment: “Congress shall make no law…abridging…the right of the people peaceably to assemble….”
Emphasis ours – because duh. “Basic civil rights” does NOT include assaulting and occupying government buildings. Arson, looting and vandalism are also beyond the definition of “basic civil rights.”
And in many, many cases – it’s these prosecutors doing the dismissing….
How do we know Leftists getting away with violence leads to more Leftist violence?
Because Leftists have been getting away with violence for decades.
The Weather Underground bombers didn’t become prisoners – they became college professors.
And because Leftists keep getting away with their violence – we can with moral certitude know there will be more Leftist violence.
We only have human nature – and hundreds of years of years of human history – as evidence.
