It should come as no surprise to students of history that when leftists gain power, their first impulse is to launch a purge of their perceived enemies and to criminalize any criticism of them. This is usually predicated on some convenient “emergency.” This time around, it was the violence in Congress by a handful of hotheaded Trump supporters, and, as is now coming to light, other agitators. Democrats usually overplay their hands and infuriate this mostly center-right nation (remember how they were voted out after shoving Obamacare down our throats), but never in history have the party and its enablers been so far to the left and so drunk on power, and never have they dived so quickly into their deepest totalitarian impulses.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is hilariously demanding the expulsion from Congress of all Republicans who exercised their constitutional right to challenge the electoral vote until alleged irregularities were investigated. She and other Democrats are claiming that they allegedly “incited” the Capitol violence, even though they said nothing whatsoever to encourage it. Sen. Ted Cruz explained why that is utter nonsense (other than the fact that it came out of AOC’s mouth.)

It’s obvious that she doesn’t understand free speech any better than she understands economics, since there are very specific laws that define “incitement,” and nothing they or Trump said falls under that definition. You can’t hold someone else accountable for the actions of irrational people who misconstrue what they said, or else the Beatles would’ve been arrested for the Manson murders.

However, if AOC seriously thinks that egging on protesters on the sacred grounds of the Capitol is an offense worthy of expulsion from Congress, I would remind everyone that in 2018, she joined about 200 “youth activists” who stormed Nancy Pelosi’s office to demand action on climate change and refused to leave, an illegal incursion into the sacred temple of democracy that resulted in 51 of them being arrested by the Capitol Police. If she could tender her resignation by Monday, that would be great.

Oh, and it’s not just those protesters in Pelosi's office who had AOC’s approval. She also excused violent protesters across America, justifying their actions under the need to make people “uncomfortable.” And she did it on Twitter, where it’s now being dug up and retweeted, which is why she’s calling on Twitter to remove it. You see, conservatives are engaging in “misinformation” by quoting her directly. Anyone want to bet against Twitter accommodating her?

Speaking of Nancy Pelosi, she’s attempting to blame President Trump for inciting the violence and demanding that Congress impeach him. That would mark an appropriate bookend for the most recent do-nothing House term, which started with a pointless, groundless, time-wasting impeachment of Donald Trump and could actually end the same way, if they hurry up. They’ll have to hurry, since he’s leaving office anyway in 11 days, and the chances of a trial and a two-thirds vote by the Senate before then are absolutely zero. But why waste time on the people’s urgent business when you can continue attacking Trump with the single-minded hatred of Inspector Javert trying to send Jean Valjean back to prison for stealing a loaf of bread?

As for Trump “inciting” violence: I’ve already made it clear that I disapproved of Trump’s rhetoric and thoroughly condemn the assault on the Capitol, a stupid and counterproductive action that set back the conservative movement and handed the left a club to bash us with. But did he actually “incite” anyone to commit violence? Law professor Ann Althouse read through his entire speech and could find nothing of the sort. Here are the seven quotes that came closest to that, and none of them even come very close.

And it appears that with the Democrats so swiftly tipping their hand that they hypocritically flipped positions overnight on condemning violent protesters and immediately started abusing their power and demonizing 75 million Trump supporters, the backlash is starting with equal swiftness. Rasmussen reports that in just two days after the Wednesday violence and the Democrats’ attempts to exploit it by calling for Trump’s removal by impeachment or the 25th Amendment, his approval rating has soared.

Just before Christmas, Trump was at 45% approval. As of Thursday night, that had leaped to 51%. A source close to Rasmussen told Newsmax, “Americans are disgusted that cities burned for months and Washington and the media did nothing. But they still like Trump.”

Moral: Don’t let leftist politicians and the media gaslight you. They may try to silence what you say, but they can’t stop you from seeing what they are.

    I do not believe Trump encouraged lawlessness at our nations capital. I do believe We are losing our country and I fear we will never get it back. Playing politics to stay alive in Washington has taken precedent over the rights and liberties of Americans. I think a-lot of the career politicians need to resign. The chance of term limits being passed for congressional members is zero. I mean... Who the hell wants to vote them selves out of a job:

    We the people need a voice and a fair judicial system. We the people need big tech to stop censorship. We need real leaders and voices. We need someone would isn’t afraid to step on toes! Thank you for reporting the truth and no matter what side it is on.

    Why do people keep saying Trump did this. There are countless videos and testimony of antifa being dropped off, also "police" opening gates and waving the trumsters in. It was a Trojan Horse set up. Yet people keep saying they disaprove like he knew about it. ?? The Dems played thier hand well . Just like they paid groups all summer to violently riot, it was thier people they hired again to make Trump look like he set this up. He didnt. Then Trump gets blamed. Thats exactly what the Dems wanted. They RUINED him. They cheated for the Senate seats and Election. We all know it. But everyone is being bullied and threatened so they "move on" . Its Terrible. Biden will bring in the Rapture surely he will "win" a second term or Harris thru cheating again. No one wants to vote now. We dont trust it.
