Regardless of what one believes about January 6th, 2020, one cannot claim it was an “insurrection” with the intent of overthrowing the government because stopping the certification of an election is not the same thing as overthrowing a government.
Many people in the media and politicians enjoy using scary phrases like “stormed the capitol building” to force us to conjure up images of soldiers storming the beaches of Normandy. But is that really what we saw? That is not what I saw. There were thousands of people there, emotions were running high, and those emotions were preyed upon by agitators and instigators. This led to violence, it led to property damage, and it led directly to the murder of one young woman by a member of the capitol police. There were many injuries on both sides of the event, and at least one indirect death of a capitol police officer. Now, technically, according to the modern definition (or one might say, redefinition) of the word, this could be called insurrection.
I say, if this had been an actual “insurrection” intent of overthrowing the United States Government, it would have been planned, there would have been a battle plan. There would have been weapons, organization, military tactics, military, or paramilitary units, etc…
In truth there was no insurrection, only a misguided attempt to stop the certification of an election that many still feel was wrought with fraud and malfeasance.
Even if they had succeeded in halting the certification for a period, our government would have remained intact and operating. The certification would have proceeded one way or another.
Thinking an insurrection in this country is even remotely possible is utterly laughable. There are too many safeguards and contingencies in place. The government itself is far too large, and no ragtag band of rebels stands a chance of success.
The “Civil War” was the first and highly likely the last insurrection in this country and it was only made possible by the secession of several states, the creation of a whole new country with an operating government and the raising of a large army.
The January 6th insurrection hoax is nothing more than one power base using anything and everything they can to stop the other from regaining power.
Open your eyes, stop letting the media gaslight you, start using the logic and reason that you are all capable of. Believe what you saw the very first day, the raw footage coming in, interpret it yourself, apply logic, apply reasoning. Do not let other people, me included, tell you what you saw.
Remember this: Over 1000 arrests were made yet only two people have been convicted of seditious conspiracy (two or more people plotting to overthrow the govt.). The rest have been mostly charges for assault, destruction of property, and interference with a public proceeding.
That is all.
