Just because the Wehrmacht.....er, Democrats, need a way to hide the year-long riots and anarchy they instituted is no reason to believe the propaganda about January 6th.
Instead, remember that the Democrats lie about everything.

Same for their state media.


“BOMBSHELL VIDEO Emerges of Capitol Police Giving the OK to Enter the Capitol on January 6th

Exclusive video obtained by American Greatness shows USCP officers talking with January 6 protestors inside the building that day, giving the ok to enter and peacefully protest:

Julie Kelly reports: A newly-obtained video shows United States Capitol Police officers speaking with several January 6 protestors—including Jacob Chansley, the so-called “Q shaman”—inside the Capitol that afternoon.

The clip directly contradicts DOJ complaint that claims USCP told this group, which included Jacob Chansley, to leave. Chansley has been in jail for more than 4 months. He’s not accused of assaulting an officer, vandalism, or any serious crime.

And a real 'insurrection'.....


Completely ignored behind the pretense that this was an insurrection, a rebellion, an attack on democracy itself, was the real such attack on America: The three day siege of the White House in May of 2020, occupation of Lafayette Park, and the burning of the historic St. John's Church.



“More than 60 Secret Service officers and special agents sustained multiple injuries in three days worth of violent clashes stemming from protests demanding justice for George Floyd in Washington, D.C.



The uprisings overflowed from Lafayette Park and continued near the White House on Saturday night and early into Sunday morning. Protesters in the area had taken to the streets since Friday to condemn police brutality.”

At least 60 Secret Service members injured during George Floyd protests in DC



“St. John's Church Near White House Set on Fire ….fire crews were able to get to the scene to save the historic structure where every president since James Madison has attendended services,…” St. John's Church Near White House Set on Fire










First time a President had to be evacuated from the White House since the War of 1812.



Here is MSNBC reporting on that ‘mostly peaceful protest” attacking the WhiteHouse


“….folks trying to make a point of being peaceful….”



Peaceful protesters jumping the barriers at the White House.

An "alternate" and equally valid definition of INSURRECTION:
The act of rising against civil authority or governmental restraint; specifically, the armed resistance of a number of persons to the power of the state; incipient or limited rebellion.

In which case, since there was no "armed resistance", there was no "insurrection". It was a "mostly peaceful" protest.

Er ... no ...

18 US Code § 2383:
"Whoever incites, sets on foot, assists, or engages in any rebellion or insurrection against the authority of the United States or the laws thereof, or gives aid or comfort thereto, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States."
[Emphasis mine]

No mention of "armed" under the law ... and Congress certainly does have the authority to certify the Presidential election results ... my sense is that only those who intended for their actions to lead to four more years of a Trump administration could be held to this charge ... those who wanted to raise hell would get by with just rioting charges ... either way, they need to say bye-bye to their 2nd Amendment rights ... dumb fuckers ...

Make all the excuses you want, but 1/6 will go down in infamy with 12/7 & 9/11.


Only in the empty minds of simpletons like you.

That's why you are the enemy of liberty.

. We have learned….from the state media….that none of the hundreds of Biden voter riots count…..the only one that matters is the ‘Armed Insurrection at the Capitol”!!!

When a Republican calls their lie, well…then PolitiFact calls him a liar…’Pants On Fire!’



“Says Jan. 6 Capitol riot “didn’t seem like an armed insurrection.”

U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wisconsin, still claims accounts of the day’s events are being exaggerated. He made his case Feb. 15, 2021, in an appearance on "The Jay Weber Show" on WISN radio.

"The fact of the matter is this didn’t seem like an armed insurrection to me. I mean armed, when you hear armed, don’t you think of firearms?" Johnson said. "Here’s the questions I would have liked to ask. How many firearms were confiscated? How many shots were fired? I’m only aware of one, and I’ll defend that law enforcement officer for taking that shot." PolitiFact - Yes, Jan. 6 Capitol assault was an “armed insurrection”





But….the FBI supported the Republican's contention:

“How many firearms were confiscated in the Capitol or on Capitol grounds that day?
To my knowledge we have not recovered any on that day from any other arrests at the scene at this point.

So nobody has been charged with any firearm weapon in the Capitol or on Capitol grounds.
Correct.”
Update: FBI Counterterrorism Official Says She Has No Knowledge of Firearms Recovered During Jan. 6 Capitol Breach



And…










Democrats. They lie about everything.

OK, but then you'd need to arrest all of the antifa and BLM rioters, and democrat pol enablers. Thousands more than the few hundred goobers who visited the capital building.

Armed

armed adj
1
: having a weapon [an assailant]
2 : involving the use of a weapon [an attack]

Source: Merriam-Webster's Dictionary of Law ©1996. Merriam-Webster, Incorporated. Published under license with Merriam-Webster, Incorporated.

Some of the weapons that were confiscated had been seen being used inside the US Capitol including a baseball bat, a fire extinguisher, a wooden club, a spear, crutches, a flagpole, bear spray, mace, chemical irritants, stolen police shields, a wooden beam, a hockey stick, a stun gun, and knives.​


Police said they found a gun on Christopher Alberts while he was exiting the Capitol. The Maryland native tried to flee but was restrained by officers, who also found 25 rounds of ammunition, according to court documents. Alberts allegedly told police he had the gun for "personal protection," and he hasn't yet entered a plea, according to court records.

Lonnie Coffman of Alabama was arrested near the Capitol shortly before the attack and was found with what one judge called a "small armory" in his truck. Investigators discovered three guns, 11 Molotov cocktails, a crossbow with bolts, smoke bombs and a stun gun, according to court documents. Coffman, 70, pleaded not guilty last month to a 17-count criminal indictment.

“BOMBSHELL VIDEO Emerges of Capitol Police Giving the OK to Enter the Capitol on January 6th
I knew this was going to be a load of crap and false as your usual and standard fictional tales! The "peaceful insurrectionists" in the video were ALREADY inside the Capitol, not outside on the Capitol grounds and that bloody "Q" Shaman was either before or later seen on the floor of the U. S. House howling like some fool on Meth! Currently, his ignorant self is in jail waiting for his trial to start. Yeah, a fine example of the peaceful, law-abiding folks you display as sterling examples of the Far Right!

Your propaganda doesn't pass muster, Chica! You're shoveling crap and again displaying you have great difficulty wrestling with the truth but are completely at home with untruthful tales of your "earthy" creation.

Oh, and trying to identify Democrats as the Wehrmacht as in your first sentence of the OP, assuming you are referring to the Third Reich German military is pointing a stupid and baseless meme as if it were a loaded cannon. The Wehrmacht was composed of the German Army, Navy and Air Force (Heer, Kriegsmarine & Luftwaffe which lasted a total of 10 years, '35-'45. So you see twit, your attempted slam of a political party simply turned about and smacked you displaying your ignorance!

A thought crime, in a free society, is an affront.
It is fitting thought, in a Bolshevik or Nazis or similar oppressed society.

You certainly have chosen the correct appellation.

Please depart, scum.

A photo emerged of a GOP lawmaker who last week downplayed the Capitol siege and compared the rioters to tourists barricading the House doors with furniture on January 6.

Rep. Andrew Clyde said during a House oversight committee hearing on Wednesday that it was a "bald-faced lie" to call the riot an insurrection. He said the riot, in which hundreds of Trump supporters breached the Capitol, resembled a "normal tourist visit."

After Clyde's comments, a photographer shared a photo he had taken of Clyde using furniture to barricade the House against rioters trying to force their way in to disrupt the certification of President Joe Biden's election victory. Several people died in the riot.
