Ilana Mercer, The anniversary of January 6 is upon us. In deranged Democrat nomenclature, “It was an insurrection”—apparently the deadliest in U.S. history. To their disgrace, Jan. 6 has indeed become the Democrat’s 9/11.
Deplorables should rejoice for the Democrats are having a fit, and that’s fun. Rejoice, but do not partake in or dignify the production. Ignore Jan. 6 as you would “spam for penis extensions.”
Stay away from the force-field of evil that is the Democrats’ Jan. 6 Psychological Operation (PSYOP). Much like the Russia hoax—it was a plot to unseat a president—the Jan. 6 monomania is meant to overthrow a people, MAGA America.
Since there is nothing much to commemorate, except for the cold-blooded, unpunished murder of an unarmed protester, Ashli Babbitt, Jan. 6 must be viewed as a long-term, cynical political strategy. To alert you to this civilian PSYOP, here is my reply to a liberal friend, who emailed late in 2021, still preoccupied with the Trump wrecking-ball:
“I understand why you are unaware of what’s going on in Biden’s America, among regular Americans: As a news-consumer myself who must consume the repulsive, ethics-abnegating, fake progressive media—I see that most of the legacy media’s time is devoted to prosecuting an ex-president, Trump, and maligning into oblivion his Deplorable base, whom they now accuse of spreading The Disease (as the ‘unvaccinated’), and being a source of domestic terrorism. Media report not at all about Joe Biden’s policies and their impact on the average Joe.”
Put it this way, when Trump is dead and gone, the same fraudulent, outlets, conjuring this alternate-reality, will continue to “report” on the “legacy of Trump.” This, these fake-news frauds will frame as the news du jour.
It is the responsibility of thinking people, I urged my liberal friend, to know Trump is no longer president (ya think?) and no longer news. But, in defense of those who have been swept up with mainstream media’s Trump monomania, even the Associated Press and Reuters are similarly mum about the issues defining Biden’s America.
In any event, anticipate an orgy of network ninnies and imbeciles gathering at the scene of Jan. 6, delivering excitable diatribes about the near-demise of American Democracy courtesy of Trump voters. This the likes of Anderson Cooper, of CNN, will do in fussy falsettos. After all, menstrual America now rules MAGA America. And the purpose of a Jan. 6 commemoration is to single out MAGA America as an object for ignominy, while consecrating and celebrating menstrual America: the woke crybabies of Congress and the Capitol Hill cops who wailed the loudest when recounting their professional failings on that day.
Unlike Republicans, who threw Jan. 6 political prisoners in a briar patch from which there is no escape—Democrats admirably stand tall for their core beliefs, as repugnant as these mostly are. The Left most certainly didn’t rush forward to condemn the Black Lives Matter and Antifa louts, as they looted and killed their way across urban America leveling private property—the livelihoods and businesses of fellow countrymen. Instead, Democrats defended the criminal arm of their party. “Riots are the language of the unheard,” they preached, parroting MLK, who opposed violence.
That’s the Right’s blight. The anatomy of every single left-manufactured, network-news outrage sees our side always conceding to the legitimacy of the Left’s argument, accepting the premise of their gripe, and arguing on their terms of debate. And then going on the defensive, instead of playing offense.
Like them or not, our people are the ragtag bunch who would storm the plush seats of state power and corruption. The Democrats’ people are Black Lives Matter and Antifa. Be they illegal voters and criminal aliens, or just good old vandals, rapists and murderers—the criminal class is now the armed and shielded wing of the Democratic Party: Courageously and audaciously, Democrats lionize and give license to their criminal constituents.
Odious Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois, a Pelosi poodle and a Republican Jan. 6 reveler, is correct: There is a difference between a crime and a coup. Crimes against innocent fellow citizens are acts of cowardice; a coup against the State can be heroic–just like the American Revolutionary War was a coup against Britain.
Principled, conservative libertarians will therefore distinguish pro-Trump patriots from the criminal arm of the Democratic Party: BLM, Antifa and other riffraff. These weaponized Democrats, immunized by party leaders from criminal liability, romped through America, in the summer of 2020, causing billions in damages. Like locusts, these cultural revolutionaries descended on their neighbors to menace them in places where they shop and socialize, sadistically threatening, and often physically harming innocents, unless they knelt like slaves.
In contrast, the ragtag renegades of the MAGA movement, as misguided as they were, stormed only the seat of power and corruption that is the State. Once!
The pompous Jan. 6 Commissioners, led by that daughter of 60 dogs (an Egyptian expression), Liz Cheney, inform us that President Trump knew about the riot, was monitoring it and liked the way it unfolded.
But if Trump misjudged the situation during the short time he had, as he hunkered down in a bunker, then what can be said of the Democrats’ response, for months on end, to their national armies of mobilized rioters, looters and murderers? Democrats knew, too. Progressive leadership embraced, even bailed out, its terrorists as spawns not of the devil but as “Summer of Love” peaceniks.
If Democrats can defend their rioters, the Republican Party must represent theirs and secure them their Constitutional due-process rights still denied.
Above all, MAGA America must cancel Jan. 6; consider it a civilian Psychological Operation intended to “induce” and “reinforce behavior” meant to politically and psychologically pulverize the Democrats’ enemies: us.
