Ever watch 2020 on a Friday night? Or Dateline? What once used to be serious “news magazine” shows have devolved, like everything else in journalism, to a complete waste of time that exists only to manipulate your emotions and keep you watching. Every week, they’re reality murder mysteries where half way through you’re convinced (because producers manipulated you into believing) the killer is someone it’s not. By the end, the truth is revealed in a way that leaves you in shock. It’s as predictable as the setting sun. And so are Democrats.
When word came out this week that the January 6th committee – Nancy Pelosi’s inner circle of flying monkeys eager to do as much damage to Republicans as possible – had hired the former head of ABC News to “produce” their big prime time hearing tonight, I knew the only thing missing would be the melodramatic Keith Morrison voiceover.
The simple fact of the matter is the American people don’t give a damn about any of this. Was the January 6th riot good? Hell no. It was stupid. But was it a “threat to democracy”? Absolutely not.
There was no plan, no plot. To the extent that anything was coordinated it was between a couple of guys no one has ever heard of who, for reasons maybe someone should ask the FBI, did their best to stir people up. Creating an angry mob and getting them to do stupid things is pretty easy, Democrats spent a year leading up to the 2020 election doing just that. Does that mean it’s a plot to overthrow our government?
In the case of Democrats, maybe. They did sustain their attack until it was no longer needed, whereas the January 6th riot lasted a couple of hours. The majority of people who entered the Capitol that day did so on the Senate side, not the House side where the fighting was taking place. Having worked in that building I can tell you it’s huge and it’s easy to have zero clue what’s happening on the other side of it while you’re in it. As the small mob was breaking windows, more people walked in the Senate side through doors held open by Capitol Police. They even got directions to parts of the building from police so they could get the best selfies. There are police officers in Seattle and Portland still traumatized by Democrats trying to set them on fire with Molotov Cocktails and permanently blind them with green lasers who’d love to have had that kind of interaction with their mobs.
