If there’s one thing that has been a recurring theme over the last half-decade or more, it’s that Democrats and other leftists keep trying to gaslight the rest of the country into believing what just isn’t true. Whether it’s calling half the country degenerates for simply wanting to treat people fairly or making up nonsense in an effort to impeach a sitting President on charges for which there is no evidence, it’s clear that those on the left keep lying.
One of their particularly offensive lies has been calling riots “mostly peaceful protests” and calling the mostly peaceful protests of January 6, 2021 “riots.” Now, one Democrat wants to go so far as to punish three Republicans for not buying into the leftist lie. Zachary Stieber writes,
Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.) is seeking to censure three Republican colleagues who he claimed downplayed what happened on Jan. 6 when people stormed the U.S. Capitol in Washington.
The Democrat is looking for co-sponsors for a resolution that would censure Reps. Andrew Clyde (R-Ga.), Jody Hice (R-Ga.), and Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) for comments they made during a recent congressional hearing.
“As members of Congress, we have a responsibility to our constituents, the country, and the Constitution to be truthful about facts even when it is inconvenient and uncomfortable,” Cicilline wrote in a letter to other House members.
“These members cannot be allowed to rewrite history at their convenience by disrespecting the sacrifices made by Capitol police officers and downplaying the violent, destructive intent that rioters carried into this sacred building.”
“It’s very dangerous. It really emboldens others who might consider doing the same thing if it can be explained away,” Cicilline added during an appearance on MSNBC.
What was there to downplay from January 6? The only person who was killed was an unarmed Trump supporter who was shot by Capitol Police. There were multiple reports that Capitol Police simply let people walk in to the Capitol Building, and what did people do once they got inside? They took pictures with their feet up on Nancy Pelosi’s desk and other “horrifying” things.
But you can bet that Cicilline calls people being assaulted and killed by Antifa and BLM a “mostly peaceful protest.” Who is downplaying what, here, David?
Simply put, Cicilline’s call to censure Republicans who are telling the truth is another leftist lie as they try to gaslight Americans into not believing what their eyes actually see.
Cicilline is the one who needs to be censured. If the truth were told in Washington and in the mainstream media, he would be impeached for trying to deceive the America people.
