"Well, one of the beautiful things about America is everybody is allowed to come out and voice their opinion. That's what soldiers fight for."

@RepBrianMast on BLM protesters who threatened Congressmen in August. A class act — unlike @jaketapper.
Here's one of the Republicans who was threatened by BLM:
@RandPaul. The mainstream media did not show much concern for their safety at the time. Phonies.
Where were the calls for putting Bernie supporters on terror watch lists after this event, where Republicans were literally shot at during a baseball game?

Seems a bit more objectively life-threatening than the Capitol siege event, no?

Don't get me wrong, Bernie supporters should *not* be on terror watch lists. They should not be canceled. Just like peaceful Trump supporters should not be, either. It's called equality under the law. It's something so-called "liberals" used to believe in.

"BYE BYE JOHN."

It turns out that James Sullivan, the brother of John Sullivan is *NOT* a big fan of his Antifa/BLM-affiliated brother.

John Sullivan was just busted inflaming a riot at the Capitol. It appears his brother's group Civilized Awakening has words:🔻 Image
This is the Facebook group for Civilized Awakening:
facebook.com/civilizedawake…
"Although he has a history of tension and conflict with Black Lives Matter Utah, James Sullivan, who is the co-founder of Civilized Awakening said he decided to attend the event peacefully"...

Antifa/BLM activist & arrested Capitol siege agitator John Sullivan's adopted daddy is Air Force Maj. Gen. Kevin J. Sullivan.

The Air Force general was reprimanded and resigned after an incident involving *NUCLEAR WARHEADS.*

This raises *NO QUESTIONS* whatsoever. [Thread.]🔻 ImageImage
"The Air Force generals who were disciplined were: Lt. Gen. Kevin J. Sullivan, deputy chief of staff for logistics, who received a letter of reprimand and is retiring."
nbcnews.com/id/wbna26892774
"The Air Force and Army have disciplined 17 senior officers, including the three-star general in charge of logistics, for poor oversight in connection with the mistaken shipment of fuses for nuclear warheads to Taiwan."

"Not until the very end did it become apparent there was a prearranged plan to storm the Capitol building, and to manipulate the unsuspecting crowd as cover and as a follow-on force."

Expert eyewitness account of the Capitol event on Jan. 6:
centerforsecuritypolicy.org/2021/01/13/cov…
"For such a massive event, police presence was light. District of Columbia police and a small group of DC National Guard had a relaxed demeanor, keeping a professional distance from marchers and other pedestrians as they usually do." (Waller)
"Of the thousands of people I passed or who passed me... some were indignant and contemptuous of Congress, but not one appeared angry or incited to riot. Many of the marchers were families with small children; many were elderly, overweight, or just plain tired or frail" (Waller)

Does disagreeing with extremists, ipso facto, make one an "extremist"?

Many people are fleeing from big tech platforms simply because they want radical leftists to leave them alone & stop persecuting those who doesn't believe in their dystopian plans for a totalitarian society.
This is an example of extremist leftist language.

This may not have occurred to national media, but not *just* Democrats were attacked at Capitol siege.

Republicans were also attacked -- during the time GOP Reps. were making objections on behalf of President Trump.

Bombs were also found at the RNC.🔻
nytimes.com/2021/01/06/us/…
So, if I've got this right, President Trump incited a mob to go to Congress and *STOP* Republicans from mass-objecting to Electoral College slates? That's an unusual argument if you start breaking down the alleged rationale.
This is also not how a President would do a "real" coup. He would use partisans in the military or CIA/FBI. Not a mob full of scraggly haired dudes being led by a Viking Q-Anon/climate activist, random Trump supporters from around the country and even some Dems/Antifa types.

"FBI had warned that extremists were preparing to come to Washington...

The warning directly contradicted statements from the Justice Department & FBI officials that they had no intelligence to suggest a storming of the Capitol."

*BIG PROBLEM* for the official narrative.🔻
"The former chief of US Capitol Police says security officials at the House & Senate rebuffed his early requests to call in the National Guard ahead of a demonstration..."

Another conradiction of the narrative. Sund says he was turned down *SIX TIMES.*🔻
npr.org/2021/01/11/955…
How did President Trump's speech "incite" violence when he both explicitly called for a peaceful protest and agitators were preparing ahead of time to storm the Capitol, according to this reported intelligence?

Any good answers on this one? Or why National Guard was held off?
