J6 Videos Shatter ‘Insurrection’ Narrative

Posted on | March 7, 2023 | Comments Off on J6 Videos Shatter ‘Insurrection’ Narrative

“We need a complete catalog of all of the feds who were there. Tell us who they were. Let’s watch the videos and let’s see what they did, because there’s some really strange behavior on those videos.”
Rep. Thomas Massie, Kentucky Republican

As Stephen Kruiser says, Tucker Carlson has begun the process of nuking the narrative from orbit (classic movie allusion) by releasing some of the thousands of hours of Capitol riot surveillance video that the Democrats on Nancy Pelosi’s J6 witch hunt committee tried to make sure the public would never see. Among other things, the video Tucker released Monday night showed that Officer Brian Sicknick, the Capitol policeman who Democrats claim was “murdered” by the protesters, was walking around just fine after the time of his supposedly fatal encounter with the pro-Trump crowd. And there was much more than that:

Newly revealed surveillance footage from Jan. 6, 2021, shows two Capitol Police officers escorting Jacob Chansley, the behorned so-called “QAnon Shaman” who has come to symbolize the riot, through the halls of the Capitol and to the very door of the US Senate.
The footage aired on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show Monday night shows the officers closely following Chansley as he wanders the corridors of the Capitol, bare-chested and wearing face paint and a luxuriant fur hat with Viking horns.
“Virtually every moment of his time inside the Capitol was caught on tape,” says Carlson, who was granted exclusive access by House Speaker Kevin McCarthy to 40,000 hours of surveillance footage from that day inside and around the Capitol, which has never been seen before by the public.
“The tapes show the Capitol Police never stopped Jacob Chansley. They helped him. They acted as his tour guides.”
At one point, the officers are seen walking Chansley past seven other police officers milling around outside the Senate chamber, who barely give him a second look.
Then they escort him to various entrances of the chamber that appear to be locked. Eventually, they help him open a door, and he enters the chamber.
Chansley, a 33-year-old Navy veteran from Arizona, has been jailed for almost four years for “obstructing an official proceeding.”

(Actually, it’s been 26 months, not “almost four years.”)

In a jailhouse interview played by Carlson, he says: “The one very serious regret that I have [is] believing that when we were waved in by police officers, that it was acceptable.”
In a statement, the Capitol Police suggest that one of the officers with Chansley was trying to “de-escalate” the situation because he was outnumbered.
But that does not explain why Chansley, who was unarmed, was able to walk past seven more officers without being apprehended.
“Not one of them even tried to slow him down,”
says Carlson.
He “understood that the Capitol Police were his allies. … If he was in the act of committing such a grave crime, why didn’t the officers standing right next to him place him under arrest?”

Just askin’ questions, you see. This was why Pelosi rejected Kevin McCarthty’s choices for the J6 committee and instead handpicked two noxious Trump-hating RINOs to be the “Republican” members of the committee: Pelosi couldn’t let anyone on the committee who would challenge the “violent insurrection” narrative that Democrats were using the committee to push. It was a Soviet-style show trial, not an “investigation,” and the media were in on the scam.

The New York Post is one of the few publications that questions the Democratic Party narrative nowadays, and it’s astonishing how such once-respected newspapers as the Washington Post and the New York Times have simply looked the other way, rather than trying to investigate the “strange behavior” to which Rep. Massey referred: Clearly there were plainclothes and/or undercover agents at the Capitol during the riot, and they appeared to be communicating with the uniformed cops in ways that seem suspicious. If, as Merrick Garland’s DOJ prosecutors have asserted, the rioters who entered the Capitol were guilty of serious crimes — “seditious conspiracy,” no less! — then why did police not arrest them?

Tonight, Tucker Carlson has promised another hour’s worth of J6 riot videos, and his ratings will probably be through the roof.
