In the movie Darkest Hour, Winston Churchill declares, in response to the idea that Britain could negotiate and appease Hitler to avoid defeat, “You cannot reason with a tiger when your head is in its mouth.”
The 35 House Republicans who joined with Nancy Pelosi in voting for a sham January 6 commission would do well to heed that advice, and so would Senate Republicans.
The proposed January 6 commission has absolutely nothing to do with finding out what happened that day, which is why you don’t hear Pelosi – or her new pal Liz Cheney – asking why the only person who died on that day was an unarmed female Trump supporter, a military veteran – who was shot and killed by police – and yet to this day we still don’t know the identity of who shot her or why she was shot.
The sham January 6 commission isn’t looking for answers, they are looking for facts to support the conclusion they have already reached.
Democrats and their allies in the mainstream media want the American people to believe that January 6 was an “armed insurrection” – despite the fact that not one gun was recovered from the Capitol.
An “armed insurrection” ordered by President Trump – despite the fact Trump himself called for a peaceful march to the Capitol.
And an “armed insurrection” ordered by President Trump that intended to violently seize control of the government – though no one has bothered to explain to us how a couple hundred unarmed people – including the elderly and the obese – planned on seizing control of the government.
