The premise of the political theatrical presentation by the Democrats’ January 6th committee is this: A group of insurrectionists directed by the highest levels of the Trump Administration stormed the Capitol to overthrow an election.
Actually, the Trump supporters’ goal was to convince Congress to look into some reasonable questions and doubts that the election was fair. Yes, they got out of hand. When people other than the ruling elite become engaged, the engagement tends to be a bit more direct.
It got out of hand, and a Secret Service agent panicked and killed a demonstrator. The demonstrator wasn’t fortunate enough to be a feral young gang member, so the cop was exonerated and the victim’s family got nothing. The policeman, in a double-standard turnabout that only Democrats are capable of, was completely exonerated. He didn’t even have to write up the incident.
The upcoming Democrat hatchet job will likely follow the template of the 2001 commission, whose goal was to blame the 9/11 terrorist attacks on Republicans. They will paint that dopey-looking fellow wearing the buffalo horn hat as America’s number one threat against democracy.
They will try to connect non-existent dots to cobble up a fictitious premise that, through nods, winks, and text messages, Donald Trump’s allies were planning to overthrow an election that was the “safest ever.”
The truth is, the election was far from that. There are still some serious questions. D’Souza’s documentary 2000 Mules has some startling evidence of after-midnight ballot stuffing which could have affected the outcome of the 2020 election.
