Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, May 13, 2021

In a letter sent from behind bars, a key defendant in the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol said he and fellow inmates have bonded in jail, and boasted that those attacking the building could have overthrown the government if they had wanted. The letter is signed "the 1/6ers" and expresses no remorse for the assault on the Capitol, in which five people died

One Lie after another in this hit piece. Only one person died as a result of this riot. An unarmed female air Force veteran was shot and killed by a US Capitol Police officer who remains un-named and without charges. The remainder died of medical issues unrelated to the riot.

#6 well, yes. Of course the Capitol police officer is unnamed and not charged. He did nothing wrong.

As for the others, the jury is still out on what killed Officer Sicknick. But no matter how you slice it, if a blow to head killed him, or complications from a stroke killed him ... .. any medical event was brought on by what happened. Which leads me to the other medical events from the non officers: again, legally, you can't extricate the medical events from the environment. In other words what was going on around them was a major contributing factor ... . It can't be viewed separate from it.

There should have been a lot more deaths. Capitol police should have opened fire on them like they were the insurgents invading the Green Zone that they actually were.

"The defendants stand charged with trying to steal one of the crown jewels of our country by interfering with the peaceful transfer of power. It's no exaggeration to say the rule of law, the durability of our constitutional order, and in the end the very existence of our republic is threatened by such conduct."
-- U.S. District Judge Timothy Kelly said in his ruling ( Proud Boys Leaders Ordered Held in Capitol Riot Probe

It was just a drum circle.

That's the story and we're sticking to it.

The new GOP slogan - our attempt to overthrow democracy and install fascism wasn't THAT violent!

Put that porker on a bread and water diet and see how quickly he regrets taking part in a violent insurrection.

Yup.

Because they're too big a ------- to just flat out say they supported 1/6.

Just normal tourists doing touristy things.

Nothing to see here.

All this talk about tourism reminds me of the time I took a tour of the Royal Palace of Madrid and how there were two soldiers with submachine guns in every room.

Re 23

W4RBJ won't be back to defend himself. Obviously just another insurrectionist attempting to spread more lies. He only has time to troll. He doesn't have time to defend himself to libruls.

Besides. Insurrectionists are allergic to facts.

140 cops injured, some lost fingers, another lost an eye, a DC Metro cop was dragged into the crowd, beaten with flag poles and crutches, and tasered until he had a heart attack. The Insurrectionists yelled to take and kill him with his gun. You MAGAts should be proud, in just a day you had a far higher police injury count than ALL of last summer's BLM demonstrations combined. I can't believe the cops were so gentle with the traitors, it would have been better if the tree of liberty was refreshed with the blood of 15 or 20 White Supremacist terrorist MAGAts.
