Deja Vu: Trump is being impeached AGAIN for his WORDS spoken during his 6 Jan 2021 speech. Last time it was for an upright phone call w/ Zelensky Dems claimed showed extortion. Now they claim Trump called for a violent “insurrection”, but no "there there".
2/Dems are once again taking Trumps words out of context to manufacture a false narrative that suits their political ends.

FACTS: Trump really believed there was widespread election fraud and that the election was actually stolen from him by Democrats in collusion w/ the "fake
3/"news" media, and hence that his supporters' voices were silenced. Trump called on his supporters to walk with him to the Capitol to make their voices heard and to urge “weak Republicans” to be strong and take a closer look at the election results. Just as Trump was impeached
4/for a good phone call the 1st time, now he's being impeached for a good speech. Only a delusional person will read these excerpts 👇and conclude that Trump “whipped up his base” and called them to commit “insurrection”, storm the Capitol, assault people and commit crimes.
5/Judge for yourself. Here are the main contextual excerpts of the speech that has driven the Dems and the Left to madness:

[1:32] “It would be really great if we could be covered fairly by the media. The media is the biggest problem we have as far as I’m concerned…The fake
6/"news and the Big Tech. Big Tech is now coming into their own. We beat them 4 years ago. We surprised them, we took them by surprise and this year they rigged an election. They rigged it like they’ve never rigged an election before. And by the way they didn’t do a bad job
7/"either if you’ve noticed...Again I want to thank you. It’s just a great honor to have this kind of crowd and to be before you and hundreds of thousands of American patriots who are committed to the honesty of our elections and the integrity of our glorious republic. All of us
8/"here today do not want to see our election victory stolen by emboldened and radical left Democrats, which is what they’re doing, & stolen by the fake news media, that’s what they’ve done and what they’re doing. We will never give up. We will never concede. It doesn’t happen.
9/"You don’t concede when there’s theft involved. Our country has had enough. We will not take it anymore, and that’s what this is all about. And to use a favorite term that all of you people really came up with, we will “stop the steal”.

[Comment: Trump is expressing righteous
10/indignation which his followers felt. There's an uncanny resemblance to the famous scene in Network👇]

I’m as mad as hell, and I'm not going to take this anymore! Speech from Network (1080p)
11/Except Trump was acting presidential to a perceived injustice committed against the American election system, and most importantly called for his followers to "peacefully and patriotically" making their voices heard.

"Today I will lay out just some of the evidence proving
12/"that we won this election and we won it by a landslide…

[15:31] “Now it is up to Congress to confront this egregious assault on our Democracy. And after this we’re going to walk down - and I’ll be there with you - we’re going to walk down, we’re going to walk down…And
13/"we’re going to cheer on our brave senators and congressmen and women…Because you’ll never take back our country with weakness. You have to show strength and you have to be strong. We have come to demand that Congress do the right thing, and only count the electors that have
14/"been lawfully slated. Lawfully slated.

[16:28] “I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol Building, TO PEACEFULLY AND PATRIOTICALLY MAKE YOUR VOICES HEARD. Today we will see whether Republicans STAND STRONG FOR INTEGRITY OF OUR ELECTIONS, but
15/"whether or not they stand strong for our country…Our country has been under siege for a long time…

[1:09:24] “…Together we are determined to defend and preserve government - of the people, by the people and for the people. Our brightest days are before us. Our greatest
16/"achievements still wait. I think one of our greatest achievements will be election security, because nobody until I came along had any idea how corrupt our elections were…But I said something’s wrong here, something’s really wrong, can’t have happened. And we fight. We fight
17/" like hell. And if you don’t fight like hell, you’re not going to have a country anymore…

[1:10:35] “So we’re going to…we’re going to walk down Pennsylvania Avenue, I love Pennsylvania Avenue. And we’re going to the Capitol, and we’re going to try and give - the Democrats
18/"are hopeless, they’ve never voting for anything, not even one vote…But we’re going to try and give our Republicans - the weak ones, because the strong ones don’t need any of our help - We’re going to try and give them the kind of pride and boldness that hey need to take back
19/" our country. So let’s walk down Pennsylvania Avenue, I want to thank you all. God bless you, and God bless America.”

There only one conclusion to draw from these excerpts👆: Since Trump explicitly stated: "TO PEACEFULLY AND PATRIOTICALLY MAKE YOUR VOICES HEARD" and voiced
20/his clear intention of showing strength and support to encourage "weak Republicans" to press Congress to examine more closely the election results, there isn't an iota/smidgin/skosh of any rhetoric directly or indirectly calling for "insurrection". Once again Trump is being
21/framed - charged/impeached - for alleged actions he didn't do and words he didn't say by Dems who've abandoned reason and left their senses. TDS, lust for power and disdain for half the population of the USA characterize the Democrats.
