Ann Telnaes’s 1/6/22 cartoon is an interactively labeled roll call of the instigators.
The first two united us as a country. Those days are gone.
They don’t give a damn about Democracy or the Constitution.
Is that Critical Insurrection Theory?
Never forget the 1953 CIA coup in Iran.
Never forget the US government support for dictators from Central and South America to support US business interests.
The Republican’s “Cancel Culture” right-wing propaganda machines are working overtime.
It’s just another day…
MountainSwill still defending traitors. Complaining about witch hunts, Benghazi Benghazi Benghazi.
Trumpers can run, but they can’t hide.
Even with the video evidence of the 1/6/21 right-wing insurrection against our country, the Trumpers, Magats, and other right-wingnuts will still attempt to re-write history for themselves.
A mostly peaceful protest ? One networks protest is another’s riot. American MSM botched this months prior to 1/6/21 riot. Telling the truth showing the truth is the medias job, inserting themself into the story not so much. If I trusted MSM to speak truth it was lost during the Summer of Love riots 2020. The attack on the Capital should have been squashed. Pearl Harbor shouldn’t have been bombed. The Towers shouldn’t have been hit. America needs to be moved to action…
Rethugliecons have to deny and deflect lest they be proven guilty.
Nothing they want to talk about, anyway.
For people like “Montana Bill”, the further away from 1/6/21 we get the more the Insurrection at our Capitol becomes a “non-event”.
And “Bill’s” reaction is totally “rational” compared to some on the Right.
I grew up in the South, constantly hearing about “The War of Northern Aggression” and how the poor, old South just wanted to go about their business, undisturbed, while the bad, old North keep prodding and pushing and aggravating the situation until the South was forced – yes, forced to attack Fort Sumter out of self-defense.
That’s the kind of revisionist history the aggrieved comes up with to justify their positions, and the republicans are at it again. Twisting or ignoring any fact that doesn’t “fit” their narrative!
Recently, Senator Raphael Ted Cruz spoke heresy on the floor on the Senate (by which I mean, he spoke the truth!) Fortunately, one of the Guardians of the “Big Lie”, Tucker Carlson, was able to quickly and publicly shame the Senator into retracting his truthful senate floor statement and, instead, allow him to mumble a reiteration of the Big Lie that the 1/6 Insurrectionists were merely misunderstood “patriots” who knocked around a couple of capital police – probably by mistake.
Unfortunately, Trump was prescient when he questioned, at one of his rallies, “Who are you going to believe? Me or your lying eyes?”
MT Bill gets his “facts” from FOX, which is the unofficial propaganda machine for tЯц☠p and his crime family formerly called the Republican Party. He might’s well get his “facts” from Russia Today or Sputnik, to help him dismiss reality.
The comparison of Jan 6 with the other two tragedies is really inappropriate.
