“Insurrection” investigation is a joke.

“Insurrection” investigation is a joke. By John Hinderaker.

The House Select Committee that purports to investigate the “insurrection” of January 6, 2021 … is one of the dumbest things we have seen in many years. This is true for many reasons:

  • We Republicans may have our faults, but if we were actually going to stage an insurrection, at least one of us would remember to bring a firearm.
  • Along the same lines, if we were to undertake an insurrection, we would not call on a “shaman” wearing horns and a fur hat to lead it.
  • An actual insurrection would result in casualties. Here, the only person who died, or was seriously injured, other than by natural causes, was Ashli Babbitt. …
  • If the committee wants to investigate violent riots in Washington, D.C., it is barking up the wrong tree. There was a real riot on the day when Donald Trump was inaugurated in 2017, with businesses looted, buildings and vehicles burned, and innocent passers-by assaulted. …
  • The fact that a small rabble of unarmed protesters was able to access the Capitol illegally is, or should be, shocking. …
  • We have all seen the video of the Capitol entrance where guards opened the doors and waved the protesters into the building. The protesters entered in an orderly fashion, taking photos with their cell phones and carefully staying between the red velvet ropes. I suspect that most of those who entered the Capitol on January 6 were invited in by guards. …

On the bright side, I don’t believe the Democrats are fooling anyone. The current “investigation” is a joke, and I think everyone understands that. The New York Times et al. may pontificate about the “insurrection,” but the whole thing is a farce that will get the Dems nowhere

For six months now illegal immigrants have been flooding across the southern border and settling all over the US at a rate of two million per year. So eight million by the next presidential election. Huge majorities of citizens want borders and much lower immigration. Remember the chants of “Build a Wall!”? No wonder the Dem leadership needs to change the subject.
