The Stupid Coup

ordinary citizens engaged in legitimate political discourse

After the vote, party leaders rushed to clarify that language, saying it was never meant to apply to rioters who violently stormed the Capitol in Mr. Trump’s name.

“Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger crossed a line,” Ronna McDaniel, the Republican National Committee chairwoman, said in a statement. “They chose to join Nancy Pelosi in a Democrat-led persecution of ordinary citizens who engaged in legitimate political discourse that had nothing to do with violence at the Capitol.”

But the censure, which was carefully negotiated in private among party members, made no such distinction, nor is the House committee investigating the attack examining any normal political debate. 

It was Antifa.

Totally the fault of Nancy Pelosi.

A false flag by the FBI.

Peaceful protest.

It was all those contradictory things but one thing we know it wasn’t is the thing that RNC called it on Jan 6th

These violent scenes we have witnessed do not represent acts of patriotism, but an attack on our country and its founding principles.
