We’ve all heard about what at happened at the US Capital on January 6th, 2021.
We’ve even seen videos from that horrible day, usually in the form of the same handful of 6 videos replayed and rearranged the news cycle over.
We’ve heard many descriptors – coup, riot, insurrection, siege, terrorist attack, etc. I refer to it as the violent riot at the capital.
Recently I’ve noticed more and more people calling it an “armed insurrection.”
That seems to be a very weird lie to tell, considering how easily it’s disproven, especially since most people know that the insurrectionists weren’t armed, and even the least informed could’ve easily guessed, since they hadn’t heard about any armed insurrectionists, which would obviously be the top story.
Where did the myth of an “armed insurrection” originate,
How have social media companies allowed the continued spread of this disinformation, and
Why are so many seemingly smart people falling for it?
After all, how long would it really take for a multi-billion-dollar news organization like CNN to realize that the phrase “armed insurrection” was obviously false? There wasn’t even a single report of any of the insurrectionists in the US Capital being armed.
Try this – Google “armed insurrection” and you will see that not a single reputable news source mentions that phrase.
Ask yourself why.
Many of them (CNN, MSNBC, etc) did repeat that phrase, and invited people on their shows for 2 weeks to repeat it. They had hundreds of stories and videos on Google, but they’ve since deleted all of them. Why?
Were all of those news stories and videos deleted by the big news corporations because they eventually realized it was a lie?
They were deleted because they had done their job – the indoctrination had taken hold in enough of their extremist followers to be effective for their goal – to spread the armed insurrection conspiracy theory.
So, for those who’ve forgotten, this is the clip which was broadcast hundreds of times throughout the week, on every outlet..
Nancy Pelosi is directly responsible for inciting the recent surge in leftist extremism by repeatedly using inflammatory rhetoric and perpetuating the “armed insurrection” conspiracy theory.
Nancy Pelosi must be impeached.
Many more Democrats have since expressed their support for the armed insurrection conspiracy theory.
By repeating the debunked “armed insurrection” conspiracy theory, the left-wing media is complicit in incitement of any action by anyone who watched or listened to their broadcasts of the armed insurrection conspiracy theory, as they should have reasonably known would result in their viewers being filled with anger and contempt towards anyone who doesn’t believe in the armed insurrection conspiracy theory.
The long-term psychological effects of Trump Derangement Syndrome have yet to be widely studied, while some armed insurrection conspiracy theorists have reportedly resorted to rage-quitting 15-year-old friendships via text message in lieu of their customary raging at Trump on Twitter (today’s example of an “armed insurrection” conspiracy supporter from a friend).
From Anonymous: “This person told me a few months ago she couldn’t be my friend because I don’t have any values on account of being a trump supporter. I haven’t spoken to her since. Out of nowhere today she sent me this gem.”
