An otherwise peaceful protest at the U.S. Capitol evolved into a chaotic disturbance on January 6, 2021. People were injured. Some eventually died, albeit from natural causes or suicide. Sadly, one person did die on January 6. Ashli Babbitt was killed.
However, riotous radicals didn’t kill Ashli Babbitt. She was actually a protester who was killed by Capitol Hill police. Despite idle claims by liars, no one else died on January 6, 2021. Sorry to contradict radical squad leader Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, but “almost 10 people” didn’t die.
One person died, and she was essentially an innocent bystander. But like AOC, the progressive left has turned a series of unfortunate events on January 6 into a partisan political hit job. They want everyone to believe that a few people taking selfies with cops were insurrectionists.
They weren’t. It’s that simple. Even Joe Biden proclaimed, “They were a riotous mob, insurrectionists, and domestic terrorists. It’s that basic. It’s that simple.” A few months later, Sleepy Joe compared the riot to an act of “sedition.”
It wasn’t. But on the anniversary of the most devastating terrorist attack on U.S. soil, other far-left Democrats are making the most unsound claims yet. Democrat Senate Intelligence Committee Chair Mark Warner compared the crowd to the 9/11 masterminds.
Warner, another radical liberal in line with AOC, thinks a protest that got out of hand is equal to a terrorist attack that leveled buildings and killed thousands of Americans. It wasn’t. Americans should see these bogus claims for what they are; political theater.
The left-wing rag, The New York Times, ran an article that suggested a bunch of people died on January 6. The facts speak for themselves. Ashli Babbitt is the only person to die. The NY Times article was titled “These Are the People Who Died in Connection With the Capitol Riot.”
Again, this article should have been brief. An obituary for Ashli Babbitt would have sufficiently covered the topic. But the radical rag had to stir up hatred and controversy. That’s the leftist strategy. Lie and distort the facts to trigger fear, which creates bitter animosity.
AOC’s bogus tweet mentions “almost 10 dead.” How can a person be “almost dead?” What this is is a statement that’s “almost the truth.” It’s almost the truth, but mostly a boldfaced lie. But the comment by Virginia Senator Warner is the most egregious yet.
To compare a few soccer moms and fishing dads to international terrorists is absurd. But that’s where the liberal left lives, in the world of the absurd. Those who got caught up in the chaos that ensued on January 6 made some ill-advised decisions.
People may well have been guilty of a few misdemeanor offenses. However, only a single person died, not thousands of innocent Americans. To compare January 6 protesters to seditionists or insurrectionists is political theater. But comparing them to terrorists is appalling!
