They came from all over the country. They had a “patriotic duty.” They went to Washington to rally for their Dear Leader and their way of life, the American Dream- whatever that means.
Thousands of protectors for the American Dream started a riot, stormed the Capitol, and tried to shut down the government. They fought police officers who they claim to support, calling them traitors.
These American Dreamers caused chaos, violence, damage, and death. They turned their version of the American Dream into The Nightmare on First Street SE.
The whole country watched this unfold. We witnessed the unthinkable- an act of domestic terrorism in one of our seats of government. Had these terrorists been people from another country, we would ship them to Guantanamo Bay. Instead, the government is treating them like common criminals.
What unfolded later was worse, the whitewashing by the former Dear Leader and his elected moronic minions in the very building where they might be murdered.
The narrative is, it was a peaceful protest. It was all flower power, peace, love, and understanding. Many mental midgets in both Houses of Congress drank that Kool-Aid. Conservative talk show hosts also drank the Kool-Aid, promoting the Big Lie instead of the ugly truth- an act of domestic terrorism.
One congressman, Matt “Short Eyes” Gaetz (Dolt/Mo), went so far as to say so in Congress. Ron “Cheese Brains” Johnson (Moron/Wisc.) is another who touts the riot was a peaceful protest by “patriots who love their country.” Others are touting the same lie.
I guess overcoming barricades, climbing walls, smashing windows and doors, injuring over 150 police officers, causing destruction, chaos, havoc, and looking to hunt and kill congresspersons and Vice President Pence, is peaceful. This event made the 1969 Days of Rage in Chicago look like a lovefest.
If you watched the events unfold that day, you might think a Congressional investigation was not necessary. We witnessed the ugly truth as it unfolded. More video emerged later, some by the terrorists themselves, some by media people who got in the building, and later, bodycam footage from police officers.
There were accusations that members of Congress gave tours of the Capitol to some of the rioters. There were also accusations that some members of Congress knew ahead of time what would occur. To save their political and potential legal hides they, created the whitewash, patriotic peace-loving demonstrators.
The Congressional hearing is necessary. The public needs to know that this event was not some spontaneous, spur-of-the-moment action. It was planned. The above video by the New York Times proves it.
People came prepared to enter the Capitol and create havoc. They were ready to shut the government down and kill elected officials so an election would not be certified. They were there at the behest of their Dear Leader and his mental midget minions in both houses of Congress.
The testimony of the police officers was powerful. They experienced a once-in-a-lifetime traumatic experience they will never forget. The above video shows police officers attacked with hands, feet, and weapons, including pepper spray. Some were crushed in between doors or walls. Others were dragged and almost stripped of their weapons. Police from other local and state agencies showed up. They, too, were overpowered.
This is probably one of the biggest criminal cases in history due to the number of people arrested and wanted. The DOJ is proceeding cautiously, as they always do. The public needs answers now. The hearings will provide some answers and evidence to lead investigators to the conspirators, planners, and leaders.
We should hope the planners, including the leaders of various organizations like the cowardly Proud Boys and yellow belly Oath Keepers, will be indicted and charged with conspiracy and riot-related crimes, even terrorism.
The whitewashers are preying on the ignorance of their constituents- almost 50% of the country.
The “patriots” are legends in their own minds and heroes of the halfwits, including some members of Congress.
It is time this nation faces what happened on January 6th. We saw it, and too many still do not believe it. The rioters are the true believers of an evil gospel. It is a gospel of terrorism written by their Dear Leader, political pundits, cults, and some congresspersons from both Houses.
