Number of people that died in the Rwanda Genocides – 850,000.
Number of Civilians killed in the Vietnam War (North and South) – 627,000.
Number of people that died during 9/11 – 3,000.
The number of people that died during the Capitol Building vandalism was four Trump supporters. One was shot by an unnamed Capitol policeman, one had a stroke, one had a heart attack, one had an overdose of amphetamines. The police guy that supposedly was “viciously beaten to death with a fire extinguisher” — that never happened. After the fracas he went back to his department and texted his brother that he had been pepper sprayed twice. Later autopsies showed no “blunt force trauma.”
The damage? Several windows were broken, and the Speaker of the House lectern had been stolen – and the guy who took it arrested. Probably under $50,000 max damage. Antifa/BLM riots has caused over $2 billion dollars in damage to federal buildings and small business shops.
Candace Owens brought up a “Fun Fact” in history. In 1933 the Home of the German Parliament (the “Reichstag Building”) had a fire started by a lone Communist and it did a lot of damage to the building. In the spirit of Winston Churchill’s statement of “Never let a good Crises go to waste,” Hitler’s group started screaming and started the “Reichstag Fire Decree.” They started yelling that the “Communists were plotting against us!” They then (for your protection) suspended civil liberties – and started gathering up all the communist Germans. The rights of Habeas Corpus, Freedom of Expression, Freedom of the Press, Public Assembly and secrecy of your mail and phone was taken away.
Now – it would be an extreme “conspiracy theory” to suggest any similarities between then and now, but it sure is strange some of the similarities. Why would asking any questions about this event get you shut down? Fired?
The Pravda political news services (CNN/MSNBC, etc.) all claimed that it was only Trump’s group at the Capitol (Do you remember John Sullivan? He is a known antifa/BLM activist who attended the protest at the Capitol). Smells a little Reichstag to me – in my opinion of course.
The progressives and the media immediately started screaming armed insurrection! Coincidence? I think not.
Oh, I keep forgetting. Did I mention that on the Jan. 6 “protest” the FBI announced that no guns were found – I did see one guy, using a crutch against someone else, so that might have been a weapon of mass destruction.
It was a stupid thing for the Trump Supporters to go into the building – but an “armed insurrection”? Progressives and the media have milked it for as much mileage as they can get.
