Le quattro grandi bugie alla base di questa storia dimostrano che era probabilmente un evento organizzato.
I media stanno raccontando gli eventi di Washington DC, in un modo che non ha alcuna somiglianza con la realtà, non regge alla prova dei fatti e avrà conseguenze enormi e di vasta portata per tutti noi.
'Certo, avremo il fascismo in questo paese e lo chiameremo antifascismo'
Huey Long, politico statunitense assassinato nel 1935
They’re calling it “one of the darkest days in our
nations history”, a day that will “live in infamy”. It will likely be
memed into a shorthand date – 1/6/21, like 9/11 and 7/7. It will be the
day “American democracy was attacked and prevailed”, the day the nation
nearly fell to “fascists”.
It will become just one more grand sweeping illusion upon which the teetering structures of US Imperial power are built.
The story we are being told goes as follows:
Yesterday, as congress was preparing to pass the vote endorsing Joe
Biden’s election victory, thousands of violent right-wing thugs stormed
the Capitol building.
Acting according to Trump’s wishes, and with his endorsement,
these domestic terrorists overran the police barricades in an attempt to
overthrow the senate and preserve Trump’s presidency.
Fortunately the police were able to secure the situation, drive
the violent rioters out and the democratic process was able to continue.
Not one single part of this story is true:
- There was no “storming”
- There was no “incitement”
- There was no “violence”
- And the riot effectively ended Trump’s presidency.
Let’s tackle them one at a time.
* * *
1. There was no “storming”. Rather videos show police opening barriers to let the “rioters” in.
In the entrance hall, the “violent thugs” respected the velvet ropes and kept in orderly lines, took a few selfies with the cops, posed for the press and – when the main events were over – they were quietly allowed to leave.
Compare and contrast the police’s treatment of those people inside the capitol, with their later treatment of protesters breaking curfew on the streets.
2. There was no “incitement”. All of Trump’s social media posts on the subject instructed people to “go home” “with peace and love”.
Is that inciting violence?
Twitter and facebook took the totally unprecedented step of
completely removing those posts, and blocked him posting any further.
They claimed to be preventing further violence, but it looks more like
they concealed Trump’s denunciations of violence.
3. There was no violence. Indeed whether or not
Trump “incited” anything is moot, because there was no violence.
Disregard the reports of chemical weapons, pipe bombs or IEDs – none of
which ever appeared. None of the “rioters” are as yet shown to have hurt
The only person reportedly killed or injured was a protester allegedly shot by the police. Compare and contrast the attitude of the media to this “violence”, vs the “fiery but mostly peaceful” protests all last summer.
4. The riot ended Trump’s presidency. Although the
Congressional session was widely described in the press as the
“confirmation vote” for Joe Biden’s election victory, it was actually
rather more than that.
VP Mike Pence was chairing a joint-session which intended to allow
full speeches from those opposing the election and maintaining there had
The violence brought this session to an end prematurely, totally
undermined Trump’s legal and procedural challenges and killed any chance
he had of overturning the electrical college vote. No sooner was the
“attack” over, than many of the Republicans in both houses who were planning to oppose Biden’s election backed-down
More than that, it seems Trump’s “incitement” of the rioters means he may well be removed from office by enforcement of the 25th amendment, which would end not just this term, but make it illegal for him to run again in the future.
Facebook and Twitter have outright banned him from posting. The press and television pundits are openly accusing him of treason and sedition.
So, who has really benefitted from the “chaos at the Capitol”? Because it surely isn’t Donald Trump.
One should always be wary of any event which “accidentally” achieves the exact opposite of its stated or apparent intent.

In the title, I refer to this as America’s Reichstag fire,
and that’s not just emotive language, the parallels are pretty clear: A
staged attack on a political building, deliberately misattributed to
political enemies and used to consolidate the power of a freshly
Even the media coverage is similar, the Nazi government and their
tools in the press talked about it in the same exact terms as the US
establishment is describing this farcical “coup attempt”. Aiming to
terrify people into thinking they were on the verge of an all-out civil
Read this quote, and ask yourself if it couldn’t be lifted almost
completely from the front page of the Washington Post or New York Times
The burning of the Reichstag was intended to be the
signal for a bloody uprising and civil war. Large-scale pillaging in
Berlin was planned for as early as four o’clock in the morning on
Tuesday. It has been determined that starting today throughout Germany
acts of terrorism were to begin against prominent individuals, against
private property, against the lives and safety of the peaceful
population, and general civil war was to be unleashed…
Within 24 hours of the Reichstag burning, the German President had passed the Reichstag Fire Decree, which declared a state of emergency that totally reversed every civil right the Weimar Republic had guaranteed its citizens:
Articles 114, 115, 117, 118, 123, 124 and 153 of the
Constitution of the German Reich are suspended until further notice. It
is therefore permissible to restrict the rights of personal freedom
[habeas corpus], freedom of (opinion) expression, including the freedom
of the press, the freedom to organize and assemble, the privacy of
postal, telegraphic and telephonic communications.
While these freedoms have already been severely undermined in the US by the Patriot Act
and its successors, those few rights left to American citizens will
definitely be under threat once Trump is finally removed and Biden (or
Harris) is put in his place.
Although there is not yet any talk of legislation, it’s certainly
true there are whispers of purges and other measures to “protect the
Some prominent voices are calling for all lawmakers backing Trump to be expelled from office. The Washington Post claimed “seditious Republicans must be held accountable”.
The anti-social media campaign has begun again in earnest too, with Parler and GAB already being blamed for allowing “violent language” on their platforms.
As Twitter and Facebook limit discussion, alternative platforms will
be shutdown. Enforcing a corporate monopoly the cooperates with the
state…the very definition of fascism.
All this in the name of protecting the nation from “neo-nazi thugs”
or “white supremacists” or other phantom threats. In the name of
“protecting the constitution”, they are tearing it to pieces. In the
name of “preventing a coup”, they are carrying one out in front of our
It puts in mind Huey Long’s famous quote when asked if fascism would ever come to America:
Sure, we’ll have Fascism in this country and we’ll call it anti-Fascism.”
