The primary objective of the Democrats is to create a one-party socialist state. The rallying point for their efforts to destroy the Republican Party—Democrats’ equivalent of the Fourth of July—is the storming of the US Capitol that occurred on the Sixth of January. With the collusion of the media, we have been force-fed allegations that the assault was an attempted coup, that Trump supporters conducted the assault, and that President Trump was personally responsible for inciting it. These allegations are entirely duplicitous.
The argument for Trump’s guilt rests on his statement, “If you don’t fight like hell you’re not going to have a country anymore.” However, he also said, “I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.” Democrats conveniently neglect to mention the latter statement because it refutes the claim that Trump incited violence. “There is an important legal distinction,” stated the Washington Post, “between gathering like-minded people for a political rally—which is protected by the First Amendment—and organizing an armed assault on the seat of American government.”
How do we know for sure that Trump did not incite the attack on January 6th? The FBI told us. An internal FBI report obtained by the Washington Post contains an explicit warning by FBI Norfolk on the day before the Capitol attack that extremists were planning to travel to Washington, DC, to commit violence. The report described detailed plans for the assault that included this call for violent activity: “Be ready to fight. Congress needs to hear glass breaking, doors being kicked in, and blood being spilled.” According to CNN, the FBI uncovered evidence including weapons and tactics seen on surveillance video, suggesting “a level of planning that has led investigators to believe the attack on the US Capitol was not just a protest that spiraled out of control.” Politico reported that the people who stormed the Capitol were “executing well-laid plans, deploying communications systems and issuing marching orders to rioters as they battled police.” The one thing they were not doing was waiting for “incitement” from the president.
As I pointed out in my article, “The Left’s Divisive Strategy Behind the Capitol Assault” (Reactionary Times, January 12, 2021), the attack was preplanned and staged with two objectives: ramping up antagonism against Donald Trump and diverting attention from arguments that the election was rigged. The first objective was achieved—Trump was impeached during his final week in office for allegedly inciting violent insurrection. Blaming Trump for the January 6th attack is nothing more than typical leftist disinformation. If the Democrats get away with it, they will be able to nullify the impressive achievements of Trump’s presidency and destroy his legacy. Fortunately—given the facts that are coming to light—turning January 6th into an anti-Trump hate fest has been exposed as 100 percent duplicitous. Only a left-wing fanatic, an uninformed voter, or Nancy Pelosi would fall for it.
Using the Capitol assault as an excuse, Democrats have unleashed a new buzzword called “domestic extremism.” The intention of this fiction is to convince the public that extremism is coming from the Right and that we should fear an “insurrection” by white supremacists, which in this case refers to Republicans. “The ruling elite are pushing the notion of rampant right-wing domestic terrorists and the danger of conspiracy theories,” says cultural critic Michael McCaffrey, “in an attempt to conceal their crimes and stifle dissent.”
“The Democrat Party seeks to demonize, criminalize and extinguish dissent from the 75 million supporters of Donald Trump,” said conservative author David Horowitz. In the wake of January 6th, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, speaking on MSNBC, referred to President Trump and his Republican supporters as “domestic enemies” and “enemies of the state.” Actually, the vast bulk of domestic extremism in this country has been coming from the Left, not from the Right. Six months of leftist-inspired riots, looting, burning, and murder in cities throughout the country ought to be sufficient proof of that. But if the Democrats can exploit the Capitol attack to convince the public that evil intentions are coming from the Right, it can be used to justify the canceling of conservatives and whites. Biden’s claim that “systemic racism touches every facet of American life” is itself a racist lie, said David Horowitz, “whose evident target is white people.” Biden has endorsed the replacement of meritocracy with race-based criteria for advancement. “If you’re black or Pacific Islander or Hispanic, go to the head of the line for a job, a promotion, a place at Harvard,” said Horowitz. “If you’re white, forget that place at Harvard, you’re screwed.”
After January 6th, the Democrats have argued that merely questioning the 2020 election result amounts to “insurrection” and “domestic terrorism” and should be suppressed. This is a direct assault on the First Amendment. “You can’t have a democracy,” David Horowitz warned, “if this is the attitude of a party that controls all three branches of government, is enabled by a corrupt and compliant media, and is determined not just to defeat, but to humiliate, destroy and expunge from the record an ex-president who is supported by a greater segment of the American electorate than any American leader before him.”
