Promoting the January 6th protest in Washington DC as a “domestic terrorist” event; and promoting the protest as an “armed insurrection” against the U.S. government; is the cornerstone of the Democrat’s 2022 election effort. If we watch carefully now we will see an increased emphasis on attacking anyone who might downplay the Democrat narrative.
With their back against the wall on failing and catastrophic policy outcomes; with gas prices skyrocketing; and with the economy stalled due to inflation (ie. stagflation), the democrats are all-in with this “insurrection” narrative as a political tool to distract the voting population from merging crisis of bad policy.
If they do not control the politics of the national conversation the Democrats will be crushed in the 2022 mid-term election. Ultimately their loss of control over the COVID narrative is what has led to the new CDC guidance about masks. A false premise can only last as long as the reality can be ignored. With more people awake to the fraud modifications need to be made.
The Democrats are counting on exploiting the false storyline around the Jan.6th protest. They will work overdrive in the next few days to attack anyone who puts that narrative at risk. Cue the example:
(The Hill) Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.) on Friday began asking Democratic colleagues to sign on to a resolution to censure three House Republicans who tried this week to minimize the severity of the Jan. 6 insurrection.
In a letter to fellow House Democrats, Cicilline said that a resolution will be forthcoming to specifically censure Republican Reps. Andrew Clyde (Ga.), Jody Hice (Ga.) and Paul Gosar (Ariz.) for their remarks at a House Oversight and Reform Committee hearing on Wednesday downplaying and making false claims about the violent attack on the Capitol.
“These three members dangerously mischaracterized what happened that day and showed more sympathy for the domestic terrorists than the Capitol Police officers who died during the attack,” Cicilline wrote. (read more)
If Republicans were smart they would take this challenge head-on, and start framing the January 6th populist protests as an overreach by an out-of-touch federal government, who view the citizens as dangerous. However, few republicans have the strength of conviction to stand in front of the entire media complex and push back.
The Democrats are using Liz Cheney, a woman willing to be used for this purpose, to advance that extremist narrative. Notice how when President Trump noted the “Big Lie” was the fraudulent 2020 election, the Democrats became even more enraged. Their rage is an outcome of their fear.
Their DNC playbook is very simple: control the language, define the opposition before they define themselves, and keep your political enemy on their heels. It is the Alinsky model. However, if the GOP hit back with the same articulated intensity the Democrat narrative would collapse despite the media support. Unfortunately, the weakness of the GOP is their unwillingness to fight.
Thankfully the Republicans have Donald Trump to lead…
