January 6th, 2021 was NOT a good look for Conservatives.
After sitting through a rousing speech by then-President Trump, some of the attendees decided not to listen to him when he asked them to march down to the Capitol Building and “peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard. Instead, they began what was nothing short of one of the most shameful events in American history.
Now, you can completely understand their anger on that day. In their own minds, these people were fighting for their country and its future…they just did it in the wrong way.
That day wasn’t supposed to be a time to riot. It was a time to show the world that Conservatives are here and there’s no way we’re going to sit back and idly watch as our country get flushed down the toilet.
However, there are steps that need to happen to make an effective protest…and sadly the protestors on January 6th skipped them.
The Right is new to protesting. We normally just accept things as they are, so we’re bound to make a few mistakes out of the gate…
But Conservatives are people of action, so you can’t blame those that kicked it up a notch for their lack of control.
Of course, the media was ALL over it. They’d been waiting for a day like that for a LONG time.
The False Narrative Of The Left
They immediately painted it as an “insurrection” and “treason” instead of what it really was: a bunch of angry people who were sick of being ignored by those that were elected to listen to them.
Of course, the biggest problem of the riot was the five deaths attributed to it after the fact. That’s what the media reported after the rioters dispersed, and it was the basis of the claim that the riot was a form of terrorism.
But as time has gone on, the claim of “five deaths” has slowly started to fall apart.
Two of the deceased, Kevin Greeson and Benjamin Phillips, both died of heart attacks that day.
The third, Roseanne Boyland, died of an accidental overdose.
The fourth, and arguably the most well-known, was Air Force reservist Ashli Babbitt, who was shot and killed by Capitol Police as she tried to climb through the window of the lobby.
Hers was the only death attributed to any of the violence that day.
The fifth death was Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick, whose cause of death remained shrouded in mystery and controversy. However, this didn’t stop Leftist mainstream media of asserting that his death was due to the violence of the rioters.
There were rumors of him being beaten to death with a fire extinguisher, suffocated with bear spray that was used on him, or even stomped to death by a crowd that ran him over.
Of course, there was absolutely NOTHING to back up these claims…
It was just what the media assumed happened. Video of the event showed sporadic incidents of violence along those lines, and the media filled in the gaps to fit the narrative.
In fact, this narrative was so widely accepted that the House Democrats used this false information in the trial brief of the second impeachment of Donald Trump, saying, “The insurrectionists killed a Capitol Police officer by striking him in the head with a fire extinguisher.”
The Truth REVEALED
Of course, the New York Times RAN with this story, even writing an article titled “Capitol Police Officer Dies from Injuries in Pro-Trump Rampage”—even though Sicknick’s death was still under investigation at the time.
Well, after months of speculation and assumptions, the medical examiner has released a report revealing that Officer Sicknick died of “natural causes”…and the Left’s narrative is going down in smoke.
Officer Sicknick suffered two strokes on January 6th—a medical crisis set into motion WAY before any of the protestors got to the DC area.
This death is, of course, still tragic.
Officer Sicknick was an exemplary officer, and it’s sad whenever a man of his quality passes away suddenly—doubly so when his last day was spent facing down an angry mob.
However, the fact remains that ONLY person who died at the January 6th riot was Ashli Babbit, an unarmed woman killed by a police officer.
All the others died of either natural causes or unrelated accidents.
And you can bet that neither the House Democrats nor the NYT will correct this egregious misinformation they put forth.
No one will apologize.
No one will lose a moment’s sleep over it because they know the damage has been done. The world thinks Sicknick was murdered by Conservatives…and they’re happy with that.
However, at least we now know the truth.
The only person who died due to violence that day was a patriotic (though some may say “misguided”) Trump supporter—and Conservatives can rest easy knowing no one died because of their cause that day.
Too bad BLM and ANTIFA can’t say the same…
