Many have speculated that the cause of the violence at the Capitol stems from Antifa agent provocateurs. And now a report from none other than CNN seems to confirm, at least, that this is a possibility. Though the January 6 rally got out of hand, it didn’t even closely resemble any past Trump-related protests. Typically, there is no violence, no illegal activity, nothing like that. In fact, elements of it bear a closer semblance to Black Lives Matter riots than to any Trump rally. Despite this, the media has been pushing the narrative that January 6 was all President Trump and his supporters’ fault.
CNN, in a report intended to mock Trump supporters, let some interesting information slip. For instance, nearly 5% of those arrested didn’t vote in the election. But the “news” organization revealed something more damning: many of the alleged Trump supporters who were arrested are registered Democrats:
To determine who voted in November, CNN obtained voting records for more than 80 of the initial arrestees. Most voted in the presidential election, and while many were registered Republicans, a handful were registered as Democrats in those jurisdictions that provided party information — though who someone votes for is not publicly disclosed. Public access to voter history records varies by state, and CNN was unable to view the records of some of those charged.
Sure, most of the mostly peaceful crowd were Republicans who voted for President Trump. But a lot of them were Democrats who showed up for some reason and did things to get themselves and others arrested. It its own, this information proves nothing. But when one considers that BLM activist John Sullivan tweeted about busing people in, it begins to look, as Lewis Carroll wrote, “curiouser and curiouser.”
We may never know to what extent Antifa activists were responsible for the illegal activity at the Capitol, but one thing is for sure: no Democrat would attend a Trump-related event without motives that are not 100 percent ulterior.
