The Democrats have had their double impeachment of Donald Trump and are now moving on to a congressional probe of the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol intrusion. We’re now in America’s third installment of the Democrat-media complex’s Soviet show trial series.
A resolution passed Wednesday 252-175 by the House, with 35 Republicans joining the Democrats, creates a commission to “investigate and report on the facts and causes relating to the Jan. 6, 2021, domestic terrorist attack upon the United States Capitol Complex,” as laid out by a “Dear Colleague” letter from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Three words in the letter – domestic terrorist attack – make it clear that the outcome has already been determined.
A particularly fitting definition of “show trials” is found on Wikipedia, which says they “tend to be retributive rather than corrective and they are also conducted for propagandistic purposes.” Retribution and propaganda are exactly what the Democrats are seeking.
But here are some facts that the Democrats are up against: The incident on Jan. 6 was an insurrection, a domestic terrorist attack, only in the perverted minds of power-hungry Democrats and their media apparatchiks. The offenders were guilty of no more than trespassing, scuffling with authorities, vandalism, and apparently some instances of theft. They were not armed with guns or explosives. The government was never in danger of being overcome. There was no plan to take hostages.
If swarming into the Capitol was a riot, it pales in comparison to the Black Lives Matter and Antifa rampages that not everyone lived through last summer (because their lives were taken by the “mostly peaceful” “demonstrators” who were aided and abetted by Democrats).
The only person killed at the U.S. Capitol was the unarmed Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt, shot by a still-unnamed federal agent. The other deaths were either accidental or from natural causes. Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick did not die at the hands of an insurrectionist who hit him with a fire extinguisher, a narrative the media pushed until it couldn’t. He passed away a day later from two strokes, with no external or internal injuries.
