Spoiler alert: It wasn’t really about an insurrection, despite repeated claims from the left.

Harvard Study Wrecks Insurrection Narrative of Capitol Riot

Democrats and the media claim the Capitol riot on January 6, 2021, was an insurrection, and they’ve pushed that narrative relentlessly. But last week, the Harvard Kennedy School’s Shorenstein Center published a study that debunked their claim. According to the analysis, most of the rioters were motivated by loyalty to President Trump.

And yet, you probably never heard about that.

“In the most comprehensive study to date of what motivated the Trump supporters to attack the Capitol, Shorenstein Center researchers found that 20.6 percent of the rioters, a plurality, were motivated to take part in the riot because they supported Trump,” reports The Harvard Crimson. “Another 20.6 percent of the rioters cited Trump’s fraudulent claims that the 2020 presidential election was rigged as their primary reason for participating in the Jan. 6 riot.”

This was clearly not the outcome the authors of the study anticipated. “I don’t think I expected the result to be this stark,” Kaylee Fagan, one of the authors of the study, told The Crimson. “I also certainly didn’t expect those two motivations to come up nearly exactly as often as they both did.”

“The documents show that Trump and his allies convinced an unquantifiable number of Americans that representative democracy in the United States was not only in decline, but in imminent, existential danger,” the study said. “This belief translated into a widespread fear of democratic and societal breakdown, which, in turn, motivated hundreds of Americans to travel to DC from far corners of the country in what they were convinced was the nation’s most desperate hour.”

And, given the activities of the kangaroo J6 committee, it still is.
“Now more than ever.”

A faction that cannot define “woman” “inflation” or “racism” should not be expected to know the difference between an insurrection and a political riot.

And, aside from the Capitol police killer, Byrd, and infiltrating pantifa leftists, it probably would have been pretty peaceful, at least more so that a Kavanaugh riot.

Now can we see the thousands of hours of video they kangaroo committee isn’t releasing?

Yes and he was right to the core, It is a national emergency, a turning point whereby we accelerate towards total Marxism.
