Complaining about the Senate’s blocking of a proposed commission to investigate the Capitol breach on January 6, Raskin said, “Well, they’ve elevated what they think is in their best political interests over what is clearly in the best interest of the country, which is to determine the truth of those events and the cause of those events. But they are too eager to protect Donald Trump and the evidence of his attempted political coup against the government and against the election and too eager to protect the Proud Boys and the Three Percenters and the Oath Keepers in their insurrection against America.”
For the millionth time: there was no insurrection on January 6, and Trump incited no violence. But this is the narrative the left must maintain in order to demonize Trump and his 84 million supporters as domestic terrorists, while protecting today’s actual domestic terrorists, the leftists of Black Lives Matter and Antifa.
Raskin went on then to push another false, politically self-serving narrative: that Donald Trump lost the 2020 election fair and square and that the right’s insistence otherwise is a “big lie.”
“We need to get the truth out to those people, and Donald Trump should be an absolute pariah in America, as well as everybody who has been enabling his anti-social and anti-democratic conduct,” he continued.
Leftists aren’t content simply to steal elections; their political opponents must be shunned as pariahs, driven out of public spaces beyond the fringes of polite Democrat society.
Raskin added, “If we don’t intervene to stop it now, this will become the norm. Political violence will be validated and normalized.”
What bald-faced hypocrisy. Political violence has already been validated and normalized in America — by Raskin’s party.
