|Last year <- How conservatives see Jan6th -> This Year|
"Be embarrassed & hide if you need to- but I was there. It was not Antifa at the Capitol. It was freedom loving Patriots who were DESPERATE to fight for the final hope of our Republic because literally nobody cares about them." - direct quote from the criminal complaint of Brandon Straka, well known rightwing troll, laid out in the state of facts section.
So, when faced with the consequences of their actions, conservatives and Republicans retreated to their favorite Safe Zone; the nebulous conspiracy theory. The Party of Personal Responsibility has None. When writing my last post on the Congressional Republicans efforts to swindle the 2020 election through the John Eastman Memo and legerdemain, I forgot to mention the newest dodge Republicans profred up; the Feds did it!
Before going on I would like point out if the FBI and other domestic law enforcement agencies did cut off and interdict the Trump GOP Legislative Coup attempt it would go down as the greatest counter intelligence operation in United States History.

As part of their lying counter-narrative to January 6th, Republicans rolled out two neck deep Co-conspirators in the attempted Autogolpe De Estado, the Republicans attempted to pull off last year; Matt Gaetz and Marjorie Taylor Greene. Rafael Ted Cruz used his Senate pulpit to imply there was a large array of FBI informants and agents in the riotous criminal crowd which battered Officers, stormed the Capitol building and planned to execute the Vice President, Speaker of the House, and any Democratic Representative they could lay their hands upon. Of course, on 01/06/21 just an hour before the storming of the Capitol building Ted Cruz was on the Senate floor giving impassioned speeches about baseless Voter Fraud (part of the legislative Coup the Senate and House Republicans were plotting).
Anyway I won't play the game of chasing the Republican Gish Gallop of lis about January 6th but point out 738 arrests have been made from the Capitol Insurrection; and the people thus far arrested are not Antifa or BLm but, mostly well-to-do Trump supporters. Additionally, those people who arrived in DC in January 2021, were probably bused in by Republican heavily funded Turning Point USA as this now deleted tweet by low-life Charlie Kirk alleged.
Iced Earth guitarist Jon Schaffer face twisted in rage, long stringy gray goatee flowing in the cold wind, festooned in an Oath Keeper hat, of which he is a founding member, is a well-known white supremacist deeply steeped in rightwing extremism.
Additionally, besides Trump's speech, "We're going to the Capitol. We're going to try and give them the kind of pride and boldness that they need to take back our country", inciting the Crowd to Storm the Capitol, Republican Congressman Mo Brooks stated quite plainly, "Today is the day American patriots start taking down names and kicking ass.” Afterwards Brooks told everyone to "not rush to judgement" and "wait for the investigation" as evidence was growing it was the work of fascist ANTIFA.
But, of course, conservatives will never believe the results of the on-going investigation into the rightwing attempt to overthrow the United States Government, usurp the rightful election of President Jospeh R. Biden and install floppy, flabby, fascist Dictator Donald John Trump because conservatives made up their minds that day. Remember the MAGA crowd does not see the FBI as an ally and defenders of Law&Order but, as a counterproductive agency stopping Trumpism from reigning. The FBI is the most reactionary organization in American history but, what MAGA want is a Trumpstapho or Trumpstazi personally loyal to Trump and ruthless in pursuit of their enemies.
A Cult of Personality. A Paramilitary Squad outside the rule of law and unconstrained by oversight or chain of command. Like the Proud Boys. The Oath
Keepers Breakers. And all the other thousands of fascists and rightwing domestic terrorists who stormed the Capitol that day with the clear intent on disrupting the Electoral Process and overthrowing the United States government.
Part of the rightwing Jan6th revisionist history involves the biggest name in TV Tucked Dick Carlson just asking questions (the true answers don't matter) about Law Enforcement involvement.
