The Democrat media is in full attack mode as they “report” on the disturbances that occurred at the January 6th protest in support of President Trump. They are referring to the protest at the Capitol as an “insurrection” while they previously described the riots that plagued American cities last summer as “peaceful protests.” ABC News went so far as to report that, in their opinion, now is the time for the “cleansing of the Trump movement.” That rhetoric was later quietly edited to read “cleaning up” the movement, but not before it raised memories of atrocities committed by the Nazi regime in World War II and the ethnic cleansing that took place in Bosnia-Herzegovina and in other countries towards the end of the 20th century. NBC News eagerly reported a story about Joe Biden referring to the mob that breached the Capitol as “domestic terrorists.”
AMAC CEO Rebecca Weber was at the protest at the Capitol with friends last Wednesday and saw firsthand what transpired there. She saw hundreds of thousands of Americans gather near the Washington Monument leading up to President Trump’s speech and described the vibe there as “peaceful” with “a wonderful sense of patriotism in the air.” The people she spoke with as they awaited the President’s address “had tears in their eyes and said things like, “I have never experienced such love for country as I am experiencing right here.”” Ms. Weber said “patriotic songs played throughout the day and people waved their red, white, and blue flags. Families attended, there were children of all ages running up and down the hill by the Washington Monument. This was a day where I felt proud to be an American. As a spectator, I enjoyed participating in this protest, I enjoyed being there on behalf of our members.”
Regarding President Trump inciting the attendees to take the Capitol by force with his speech, Ms. Weber said that this never happened: “Donald Trump said “we’re going to walk down—and I’ll be there with you……we’re going to walk down to the Capitol.” There was no real mission and even in the video footage that I have, no one was rioting, no one was talking about trying to storm the Capitol Building and get in the way of law enforcement. The President did not tell people to go down and storm the Capitol building. It was not Donald Trump’s idea for this to happen.”
Ms. Weber related how she was “shocked to see no police” when she walked down to the Capitol Building. She said, “The metal barricades were open, beyond that there was a flimsy fence and a strip of yellow “Do Not Enter” tape that anyone could walk over, rip down, step on. There was no security, and I was very surprised by that.”
The vibe quickly changed once Ms. Weber arrived at the Capitol Building. She saw “people that looked different, these people did not look like you or I if you were attending a rally. They were in some sort of gear, they were dressed in black, they were dressed in camouflage…waving their arms and yelling “we need more people, we need more help.” They started to chant with a bullhorn “Who’s house is this?”
“Of all the people that I saw, even those people that I saw on the actual (Capitol) lawn… were peaceful, they were waving flags, they were chatting with other fellow Americans. It was only this crowd that I could not identify with that really did some bad things. We left (the Capitol) at 2:30 in the afternoon and when I got home, I heard that at about 2:30 PM someone was shot. We just don’t know who these people are, and they were certainly begging for people to come in closer. Everyone I saw turned the other way and said “I’m not going to jail and walked in the opposite direction. There were people emboldened to do things that we don’t stand for, and it really is a shame because the morning was wonderful and the speeches that were made were in every sense a message of hope.”
Ms. Weber further stated that people inciting the violence looked professional. In fact, her friend who attended the protest with her “was pushed and shoved and she looked up at this big guy who was dressed in all black (and) wearing a facial black mask. She identified him as being something very, very wrong and said to me, “This does not feel right.” She was pushed and shoved by this person who did run towards the Capitol Building. The people that appeared to be emboldened and trying to encourage other people to participate…they were out of place and they should not have been there. It was wrong and you could sense it.”
Investigations into the mob violence are pending, including reports of Antifa infiltration into the day’s events. There are also reports of how Trump supporters stopped Antifa from breaking into the Capitol. In the meantime, the Democrat media are predictably placing blame for the violence on President Trump and thoroughly trashing his supporters in the process.
