This column is not another retrospective on the Capitol Hill riot of January 6, 2021. rather it is a retrospective on the recent retrospective of the original event.
What we saw in that retrospective is what anyone who understands the system would expect: false claims that the original event was a coup attempt, an Insurgency, even a rebellion (it was just a riot); that President Trump intended and designed it (he was as surprised as anyone else); that he should have rushed to the Capitol and told his people to stand down (It would have been a good move on his part, but security would never have allowed it); and that only the right would ever do such a thing (Well the left regularly riots, loots and burns in our cities nationwide). The left’s hypocrisy reeks to the heavens.
But the most interesting thing about the retrospective was the question that was never asked, at least not within the Establishment or it’s kept media: why did Americans think they had to physically invade the Capitol in order to be heard?
The answer is that the January 6, 2021 riot on Capitol Hill was the flip side of the “cancel” coin. When the Establishment decrees that anyone who voted for President Trump or fails to abase himself before cultural Marxism becomes an “un-person,” those people have only one way to make themselves heard: take to the streets.
