The Democrats want a 9/11-style commission to investigate the events that occurred at the Capitol Building on January 6th, 2021. Why? Why has there been no such cry for a commission to investigate the events that occurred in the run-up to, and after, the election of November 3rd, 2020? Could the demand for a January 6th Commission be nothing more than a distraction to get the people’s mind off of what many think was a fraudulent election? Let’s consider…
“…whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness” – The Declaration of Independence (circa 18th century).
The ”ends” referred to above establish that… “all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. That, to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed” – The Declaration of Independence (circa 18th century).
So again, “…whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government…” – The Declaration of Independence (circa 18th century).
In the 19th century, three quarter of a million soldiers and, probably, a quarter of a million civilians, died in the American War Between the States, with thousands and thousands of more maimed, and millions of dollars of property destroyed, in the Confederate States of America. This was an attempt by the CSA to “institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.” Abraham Lincoln would have none of it.
In the 20th century, millions and millions of defenseless people were exterminated in the Holocaust during the 2nd World War… Jews, Armenians, homosexuals, and the handicapped, all considered less than human.
In the 21st century, almost 3,000 American civilians were killed in the 9/11 Attack and 6,000 more were injured. Who knows how many have died since then due to health complications? While people tried to escape death by leaving the towers, brave fire fighters and police officers ran into the disaster and gave their lives in the attempt to save others.
What right do the Democrats have to compare the minor incursion into the Capitol building, by unarmed protestors on January 6th, to the events above? The only person who died due to the January 6th protest was an unarmed American veteran who was shot in the head by law enforcement? What was her crime? And who did the dastardly deed? Why no identification of the shooter, almost five months later? Who’s hiding what?
Compare this to a million Americans killed in the 1860’s, brother killing brother, somewhere north of six million during the 2nd World War, and over 3,000 on September 11th, 2001, in the World Trade Towers in New York City. How can anyone with a sound mind think there is any comparison to be made between events where one protestor was killed as opposed to thousands and millions killed?
What is wrong with the AMERICAN HATING DEMOCRATS?
One thought on “The Jan 6th Capitol Incursion”
It’s pretty straight forward, self promoting propaganda by the left, the press, and those afraid of the Trump agenda of cleaning up America, putting America First, and returning to transparency in government.
