Political persecution and isolation of vast swaths of the citizenry by the Justice Department, the Intelligence Community, and the Judiciary in the wake of the January 6, 2021, Capitol incursion should bring a chill down the spine of every American. This same troika, but with different nomenclature, was mobilized by 20th Century despots to eliminate their political enemies and establish a police state.
(I attended the January 6, 2021 rally at the U.S. Capitol and observed first-hand what the media and the Democrats have falsely and with malice claimed was an “armed insurrection.”)
The initial step in consolidating power is to incessantly demonize as enemies of the state one’s political opponents. The second is to isolate and delegitimize them by either staging or so exaggerating an incident that any and all steps to quash them are acceptable in order to “save the nation.” Therefore, the question is: was January 6th pre-planned by legitimate Trump supporters, was it spontaneous or was it a calculated set-up?
The American Left and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, the Democrat party and the agitprop media (previously known as the mainstream media), have for the past 12 years cast conservatives and Republicans as promoters of “white supremacy.” It was the Department of Homeland Security, at the behest of Barack Obama, that first declared in April of 2009 that right-wing terrorism or white supremacy was the greatest threat facing America. Despite the fact the number of actual white supremacists is minuscule.
The most radical and mendacious president in American history, Barack Obama, established the precedent that virtually every attack on conservatives or Republicans is framed in implacable racism and white supremacy. With the election of Donald Trump, these outright fabrications dramatically accelerated and were extended to include anyone who supported or voted for Trump.
The only thing missing was an incident that could be hyperbolically exploited into a justification for unleashing the police powers of the government against conservatives, Republican politicians, and supporters of Donald Trump. January 6, 2021, became that incident.
I wrote the following in the early morning hours of January 7, 2021:
I abhor trafficking in conspiracy theories and have avoided doing so over my entire life. Nonetheless, I cannot help but entertain a growing suspicion in the back of my mind, after having witnessed firsthand the events of January 6 and the near complete lack of police presence at the Capitol and knowing what Antifa has done in other pro-Trump rallies, that the powers-to-be at a minimum hoped what happened would happen.
The FBI claim that they were aware of the possibility of violence by small fringe groups and that they notified the proper authorities on Capitol Hill. Yet no additional steps were taken in response by anyone in authority at the Capitol. Throughout 2019-2020 every Trump rally in Washington involved violence by Antifa and Black Lives Matter whether it was the “Demand Free Speech” rally on July 6, 2019, or the closing night of the Republican Convention at the White House on August 27, 2020, or the “Million MAGA March” on November 14, 2020. The powers-to-be in the Capitol and the local government knew of this recent history yet refused to call in additional police or accept Trump’s offer of 10,000 National Guard troops.
