While the Washington Post clumsily attempts to blame President Trump for the violence — despite the President calling for “peaceful” protests and the “cheering on” of Congressmen — their own article admits the “first wave of protesters arrived at the Capitol about 12:40pm.”
President Trump’s speech didn’t conclude until 1:11pm, and with at least a 45-minute walk between the two locations with crowd-related delays, that would put the first people from Trump’s speech at Capitol Hill no earlier than 1:56pm — a full hour and sixteen minutes after troublemakers arrived. …
The Washington Post also states: “[Capitol Police Chief, Steve] Sund’s outer perimeter on the Capitol’s west side was breached within 15 minutes,” meaning the Capitol was breached over an hour before Trump speech attendees could have even begun to arrive.
No matter. Massive media power ensures the narrative goes essentially unchallenged for a few days, during which time the mischief happens. Facts, schmacts. The narrative falls to bits a few days later, but by then it’s too late and only a few people reading websites learn the truth.
Pretty much standard operating procedure now. Everyone knows the drill.
