Legal Insurrection 6/8/2021

“The law must be applied equally without regard to party, power or privilege. When the Department of Justice treats similar criminal acts differently, such conduct erodes faith in our governmental institutions and the law.”

National Democrats, up to and including the Biden administration, want you to believe that our government is so fragile that a couple hundred unarmed trespassers in the Capitol Building on January 6th posed a very real threat to our Republic.

Let that sink in.  They expect us to believe that our government was—literally—on the verge of collapse during those few hours.  Keep in mind that not one of the hundreds arrested, many of whom are still being detained, was armed.

The one and only person who died violently, at someone else’s hand, at the Capitol on January 6th was an unarmed Air Force vet, Ashli Babbitt, who was fatally shot by an as-yet unnamed Capitol police officer.

If the DOJ charging documents about the Capitol events tell us anything, they tell us, loudly and clearly, that there was no coordination except by a handful of the most inept “insurrectionists” in the history of insurrection.  Some fat old guy was reportedly napping across the river beside a cache of arms, ready to bring them in to the four people who knew about him . . . if they managed to rouse him from his peaceful slumber on their walkie-talkies.

This is the violent overthrow of our government that we are supposed to believe—despite a multi-million dollar budget slathered on America’s federal law enforcement—we were within seconds of seeing manifest?  A handful of unarmed nutters with walkie talkies were just too much for our government to withstand, too much for DHS, for the FBI, for the Capitol and DC police to handle?  We came this close to “losing our democracy” . . . to a handful of unarmed overzealous fantasists?  Really?

Of course no one believes that.  Not national Democrats, not the majority of their media mouthpieces, and certainly not anyone affiliated with, much less leading, America’s alphabet federal law enforcement agencies.
