Despite the corporate press’s obsession over the events of January 6, Americans are far more reasonable when it comes to actual threats that the government should be focusing on. Namely, Antifa and BLM’s brazen acts of violence committed throughout 2020.
Americans are simply not buying the entire “insurrection” narrative the corporate press has been peddling in the last few months.
.Mike LaChance at The Gateway Pundit detailed the absurd lengths Democrats have gone gone in attempting to depict the January 6 storming of the Capitol as an insurrection:
Since the moment Democrats took power in January of this year, they have painted what at They have painted Trump supporters and other conservatives as terrorists. The FBI has spent countless hours and resources rounding up people who were involved. Nancy Pelosi is even forming a new commission in Congress to further investigate.
Again, the American people deserve credit for not buying into this absurd portrayal of January 6.
Newsmax highlighted American’s sensible nature when it comes to public security:
As House leaders engage in a standoff over Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Jan. 6 panel, a poll found that likely voters are more supportive of investigating the social injustice demonstrations that roiled the nation last summer.
A supermajority of likely voters (66%) want the Black Lives Matter and antifa protests investigated, while a majority do not support Pelosi’s inquiry into the Jan. 6 storming of the Capitol, according to the latest Rasmussen Reports poll.
Just 49% support Pelosi’s House Jan. 6 panel, and majorities of Blacks and Hispanics back an investigation into the protests that followed the murder of George Floyd by a police officer. The demonstrations sparked violence in a number of U.S. cities.
“Sixty-seven percent of whites, 64% of Black voters, 66% of Hispanics and 62% of other minorities think Congress should investigate the 2020 riots in U.S. cities,” Rasmussen Reports wrote in the analysis of the poll. “Seventy-five percent of Republicans, 60% of Democrats, and 63% of voters not affiliated with either major party say Congress should investigate last year’s violent protests.”
There are some other interesting findings in the poll that the Washington Examiner uncovered:
53% think Congress should award medals to the law enforcement agencies that defended their cities from violent looters and rioters in 2020.
62% believe elected officials who downplayed the 2020 rioting and looting deserve to be criticized, a number higher than the 51% who believe politicians deserve criticism for downplaying the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.
76% of voters believe young people should be taught to comply with police rather than resist or flee arrest.
It’s becoming abundantly clear that Democrats are using this insurrection narrative for political purposes. The whole name of the game is to demonize right wingers as insurrectionists to justify a wholesale persecution of the populace.
That means freedoms associated with the Right — such as the Second Amendment and health freedoms — will all be on the chopping block.
Republicans have no business in giving this ridiculous narrative any more credence and should do everything to shut down any further investigations of this matter. Instead, they should use state resources to investigate Black Lives Matter and Antifa and take action against these leftist insurrectionists.
