The lying media is still claiming Trump “whipped the mob into a frenzy” on January 6th despite the fact that the riot was preplanned. There was nothing in Trump’s speech that would encourage a riot. Even his rants about the corrupt election couldn’t come close to some of the things said by Pelosi, Schumer, Waters, and many others, especially in the media.
The media has also conflated the rioters and their actions with Republicans in Congress who wanted questions answered about voter fraud. It’s now an excuse to shut out any of the 100 plus Republicans who dared exercise their right to free speech.
All these 100 plus congresspeople wanted was a ten-day review of the election fraud allegations. They had NOTHING to do with the rogue rioters.
It is fascism. Can you imagine the kinds of emails these companies get from bots and communists on mailing lists?
