Whataboutism is fair play
But does not exonerate Trump, the Proud Boys, QAnon or the attempted coup 6 January 2021. (H/T to Ann of Althouse for discovering this.) Few outlets have been more critical of the social justice nihilists terrorizing American cities than Blaska Policy Werkes. Few can match our crusade against the grievance culture that has weaponized identity politics for their own kristallnacht. From Madison to Kenosha, Portland to Minneapolis to our nation’s capital, the Left has burned and beaten ordinary citizens.
Hillary Clinton, Georgia’s Stacey Abrams, CNN, the New York Times and others have never accepted the legitimacy of the 2016 election. Democrats purchased Russian disinformation and enlisted the federal security apparatus to perpetuate a hoax as bizarre as anything over at QAnon — that Donald Trump was an agent of Vladimir Putin! Nancy Pelosi impeached Trump over a telephone call in which the President, properly, advised Ukraine to investigate corruption if they want American aid.
Let’s hope that special prosecutor John Durham’s list of criminal indictments (any … day … now …?) is lengthy and famous.
Blaska’s Bottom Line: Republicans held the high ground until the assault on the constitutional mandated duties of Congress that hellish day in January. Democrats misdeeds do not excuse Trump’s incitement.
The unethical and immoral precedence of outright abuse of authority, bastardization of the Constitution and the direct and indirect persecution of those that disagree with the left’s hive mind that the Democrats have set since 2016 is going to haunt politics in the United States of America for a very long time. It’s truly sad what has happened and I don’t have any hope that the USA culture, society and politics will recover within my lifetime.

“incitement”: to quote Inigo Montaya, “You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.” Certainly not as a legal definition. Why do you think Trump hasn’t been charged with criminal “incitement”? Because his words don’t come close to meeting the legal threshold.

Either saying “fight like hell” or “fight in the streets” or “fight back” or “fight it out” or “hit them hard” or “punch him hard” or “we need more uprisings” or “take him out back and beat the hell out of him” is incitement to violence or it is not. Whether the person saying those words has a D or R after their names, or whether I agree with them or not, DOES NOT MATTER.
Either those words are criminal incitement to violence or they are not. Which is it?
We know there are 2 sets of rules but let’s for once and for all quit pretending that Trump’s speech incited anyone to attack the Capitol and police.
His offer of 10,000 National Guard troops was declined too.

You can’t make this stuff up. Well, you couldn’t unless you were a Lefty liar, #HateAmericaFirster, an #AngryBlueFister or an end-stage TDSer.
As RoJo said today, this was a legal evisceration.
Turley speaks some inconvenient truths about Lefty lies.
But, but, but, …. what about “Muh Insurrrekkshun” and Trump’s incitement?
If your insurrection lasts more than four hours, … you oughta call a doctor.
If you believe Trump incited anyone, you oughta seek some psychiatric help.
