According to a Reuters report last week, the FBI has found little to no evidence that the January 6 “attack” on the U.S. Capitol was the result of an organized plot to halt the certification of the election.
Wow. Tell it to my haters now cause I’ve been saying this for months!
Though federal officials have arrested alleged participants, the FBI at this point does not believe that any of the activities that took place at the Capitol were centrally coordinated by far-right groups or prominent supporters of then-President Donald Trump. And NONE of the arrestees are guilty of treason or insurrection.
Sources who have been either directly involved in or briefed regularly on the investigations told the media that “Ninety to ninety-five percent of these are one-off cases.”
“Then you have five percent, maybe, of these militia groups that were more closely organized. But there was no grand scheme with Roger Stone and Alex Jones and all of these people to storm the Capitol and take hostages.”
No organization? No plotted violence? No hostage plot? How is CNN even going to handle this terrible blow? They still can’t stop reporting the false accusations of officer death caused by protesters and I don’t think they’re gonna want to call January 6th what it really was: a small unorganized mob without a goal.
Which is what I’ve been calling it the whole time.
With this report by the FBI, the whole political game of this “insurrection” nonsense is clear. It is 100% semantic propaganda – and it always was. Especially considering we are not labeling any other protests, even violent ones, as insurrection.
Sure, according to the Oxford dictionary, you could make the stretch of an argument that January 6th meets the definition of insurrection. Clearly, certain members of the media and even Congress will continue to think that, even if the FBI disagrees. But hey, you could also probably make January 6th fit the definition of a tea party, a rock concert, or a romantic date if you were really willing to try as hard as the media tries to make “insurrection” stick.
But I personally think it is a joke to call this protest an insurrection.
And if it IS insurrection, we’ve got a whole LOT of insurrection to report.
Was it an insurrection when democrat protesters occupied a Senate building? Was it an insurrection when the white house was basically under siege with protesters surrounding and breaching barricades during the Floyd protests? I just looked it up and 60 officers/SS agents were injured that night. That’s far more than ever reported on January 6th!
Was it insurrection when President Trump’s speech was bombarded by protesters and Senator Rand Paul and his wife were physically assaulted?
I would say – no – it was not insurrection. It was stupid and it was violent. Assault should be considered assault. Vandalism, vandalism. Those should be prosecuted as necessary. But protests should be labeled as protests.
If you’re willing to call a protest an insurrection it means you’re willing to call for the death penalty for those involved, as that’s the constitutionally prescribed response to treason. We know that’s what some liberals are willing to do and that’s how they keep justifying the murder of Ashli Babbitt. I’m just not willing to do that.
To me, the first amendment matters. Our right to protest matters.
Those who committed violence should be punished but at this point even the corrupt and disgusting FBI can’t bring themselves to call January 6th an insurrection. (And this is the same FBI that would literally lie to the FISA court to try and railroad numerous political enemies, including Roger Stone and Michael Flynn).
If even they can’t even MAKE UP ENOUGH evidence to sentence these protesters – no one can.
So STOP trying to make insurrection happen. It’s never going to happen.
