Democrats Put On Theatrical Performances To Re-Write History Of Jan 6

The Democrats and their allies in the media have long attempted to push the false narrative that the Jan. 6 Capitol riot was some sort of terrorist attack, and as was to be expected, they used the anniversary of the riot to ramp up their propaganda machine around it.

Vice President Kamala Harris kicked off the Biden administration’s remarks on the first anniversary of the January 6, 2021 Capitol riot by comparing it to the bombing of Pearl Harbor in 1941, and the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

“Certain dates echo throughout history, including dates that instantly remind all who have lived through them where they were and what they were doing when our democracy came under assault. Dates that occupy not only a place in our calendars, but a place in our collective memory. December 7th, 1941. September 11, 2001. And January 6th, 2021.”

More than 2,400 Americans died in the Pearl Harbor attack, and nearly 3,000 Americans died in the 9/11 terror attacks.

Harris, who participated in a Black Lives Matter protest outside the White House in May 2020 just hours after rioters attacked police around the building, injuring dozens, assaulting journalists, and forcing the evacuation of the president into a bunker, declared of the Capitol rioters: “What they sought to degrade and destroy was not only a building, hallowed as it is. What they were assaulting were the institutions, the values, the ideals that generations of Americans have marched, picketed, and shed blood to establish and defend.”

The Vice President, warned Americans about “peddling lies and information by some radical faction that may be resurgent, but whose roots run old and deep,” hinting at Donald Trump, and suggesting a connection between Trump supporters and extremism.

The left’s motivation behind pushing the narrative that what occurred on January 6 was a terrorist attack is becoming more clear.

Some Democrats are using the anniversary to launch an effort to win the 2022 midterm elections by disqualifying Republicans who supported the effort to challenge the 2020 elections results as “insurrectionists.”

The effort, led by infamous Russia hoaxer Marc Elias, aims to use a provision of the post-Civil War 14th Amendment that was crafted to disqualify former Confederates or anyone who “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof” from holding federal office.

Elias has pushed the effort for months:

Elisas tweeted on Aug 7, “”No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress…who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress…shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof.”-US Constitution”

He also tweeted, “My prediction for 2022: Before the midterm election, we will have a serious discussion about whether individual Republican House Members are disqualified by Section 3 of the 14th Amendment from serving in Congress. We may even see litigation.”

Elias is the main election lawyer for the Democratic Party nationwide and has worked closely with national party leaders.

Liberal groups — one even calling itself “Free Speech For People” — are following suit. In a press statement Wednesday, they said:

“Nonprofit public interest organizations Free Speech For People and Our Revolution today announced a partnership to urge Secretaries of State to bar elected officials who engaged in the January 6, 2021 insurrection from appearing on any future ballot.

“Secretaries of State have a duty to ensure that candidates who seek to appear on their state ballots meet the constitutional qualifications for serving in public office,” says Alexandra Flores-Quilty, Campaign Director for Free Speech For People, “Those who violated their oath of office by engaging in the violent January 6th insurrection do not meet these terms. Thus, we are urging election officials to make clear that insurrectionists such as President Trump and his Congressional allies are barred from ever again holding public office, as is required under the 14th Amendment to the US Constitution.”

“On many levels, our democracy is under threat, and grassroots activists are ready to stand up to defend it,” said Paco Fabián, Director of Campaigns for Our Revolution. “We need to demand that our election officers follow the rule of law and ensure that current and former elected officials who participated in the January 6th insurrection are barred from appearing on any future ballot.””

Anyone who assisted President Donald Trump’s team in encouraging challenges to the election results in Congress is defined as “participating” in the ‘insurrection,’ according to the coalition, which cites a Rolling Stone report as its source, and names several incumbent Republican members of Congress whom it would disqualify for doubting the 2020 election results.

Democrats have taken it a step further. With top representatives like Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Rep. Pramila Jayapal sending out fundraising emails using the anniversary as a desperate attempt to secure funding.

The DNC itself did the same, sending out an email beginning, “One year ago today, our democracy was attacked. The will of the people was under assault, and our Constitution faced the gravest of threats.”

The Democrats, in pushing this false narrative, are actively trying to rewrite history and with the help of the media they are largely succeeding – which could pose a serious threat to the future of America.
