Many RedState writers have pointed out that the purpose of the strange clown show known as the January 6 Committee’s is political warfare. It was designed by the Democrats to try to keep Donald Trump on the ballot for 2022 and 2024. The Democrats believed it could be used to “condemn” Republican politicians and win elections. From its beginning, the corrupt political agenda for this committee was clearly telegraphed when Nancy Pelosi vetoed Kevin McCarthy, House Minority Leader’s nominations to the committee. McCarthy and his nominees were not stump-broke Republicans that Pelosi required. READ MORE: Sad Hearings of January 6 Are Evidence that Democrats are anxious about the future.
Things are not working well.
The House Jan.6 committee’s new Monmouth University survey has some very important lessons. It is the task of the panel to convince the conservative Americans that Trump was guilty. They are increasingly doubtful that what actually happened on the day they were told it did.
The poll shows significant declines in Republicans’ perceptions of Jan. 6, not only as an “insurrection”, but also as a “riot.” This is not the first survey to show that.
The poll asked people in June 2021 and June 2022 whether each of those labels were appropriate descriptors for what transpired on Jan. 6, 2021. The GOP shifts look pretty consistent:
- While 33 percent of Republicans said in June 2021 that Jan. 6 was an insurrection, that number is now just 13 percent.
- While 62 percent of Republicans called it a “riot” back then, that’s down to 45 percent.
- While 47 percent said it was a “legitimate protest,” that’s now up to 61 percent.
So whereas more Republicans once said it was a “riot” than a “legitimate protest,” by a 15-point margin, that has been flipped, with Republicans favoring the “legitimate protest” label by 16 points. A majority of Republicans no longer even regard Jan. 6 as a “riot.”
This “red pilling,” on a Biblical level, is called. (I’d just point out that a lot of us arrived at the now-majority position on January 6, 2021. )
The committee used a well-known liar in order to promote a story about President Trump out of control (see Liz Cheney Is chicken little, screaming: ‘Democracy Is Falling! (No, it’s not, Liz) and Journalists declare the January 6th Committee a Fact Check Project to avoid verifying its ‘Facts. She was defying the woke comic-book business; D.C. The Washington Post makes Cassidy Hutchinson the Comic Book Heroine — Newspaper turns DC-Comics. This looks like an FBI raid and arrest has been ordered to give the committee credibility. Curious how the FBI and Department of Justice are trying to support the failing January 6 Commission?
The committee still has not addressed the cold-blooded killing of Ashli Babbitt, a veteran Air Force. GRAPHIC VIDEO. Ashli Babbitt’s Shooting by Capitol Police Shows No Weapon and No Danger or Threat to the Cop or Anyone Else) and what appears to be the beating death of Roseanne Boyland at the hands of Capitol Police. The role of federal provocateurs (Proud Boys Leader Identified as a Long-Term FBI Snitch, He’s the Tip of Iceberg) has been studiously overlooked by the police.
The intellectual insanity of the hearings of the committee and the cruelty shown to protesters, many of whom did not enter the Capitol building for the demonstration, have become evident to anyone but the staunchest Democrat partisan. Monmouth poll results are likely to be more favorable for the Jan 6 committee than conservative and Republican voters’ honest opinions. Independents could also experience a similar decline in belief in “insurrection” myths.
Democrats are invited to try for the November 6 election or any other November. Voters should reject any Republican that gives credence to “insurrection bullsh”.
