The New York Times Is Right. Every Day Really Is Jan. 6 – Opinion

The New York Times editorial board published a piece titled “Every Day Is Jan. 6 Now,”It engaged in disingenuous hand-wringing that we’ve seen since the end of the riot at U.S. Capitol Building. According to the authors, the nation must continue to focus on this incident as though it was a sign that right-wingers are trying overthrow our federal government.

For starters, let’s say that the authors wrote:

A year later, after all the destruction, smoke and bloodshed that day, it’s tempting to simply reflect and look forward. To imagine that what happened on Jan. 6, 2021 — a deadly riot at the seat of American government, incited by a defeated president amid a last-ditch effort to thwart the transfer of power to his successor — was horrifying but that it is in the past and that we as a nation have moved on.

This is understandable. Most Americans wanted peace after four years of cruelty, chaos and incompetence that culminated in a pandemic, and then the unimaginable trauma of Jan.6v.

Unfortunately, the nation is still in peril because of – you guessed it – conservatives who are somehow continuing the legacy of the riot in other ways. They explained it:

It is regular citizens who threaten election officials and other public servants, who ask, “When can we use the guns?” and who vow to murder politicians who dare to vote their conscience. Republican legislators are trying to prevent people from voting and make it easier for them to subvert the will of those who do vote. It is Donald Trump who continues to stoke the flames of conflict with his rampant lies and limitless resentments and whose twisted version of reality still dominates one of the nation’s two major political parties.

The article goes on to argue that America “faces an existential threat from a movement that is openly contemptuous of democracy and has shown that it is willing to use violence to achieve its ends,” and contends that “[n]o self-governing society can survive such a threat by denying that it exists.”

But that’s not all.

They then attempted to link the Capitol Riot to laws that Republican legislators have passed to protect election integrity. “[T]he past year, Republican lawmakers in 41 states have been trying to advance the goals of the Jan. 6 rioters — not by breaking laws but by making them,” the article reads. “Hundreds of bills have been proposed and nearly three dozen laws have been passed that empower state legislatures to sabotage their own elections and overturn the will of their voters, according to a running tally by a nonpartisan consortium of pro-democracy organizations.”

These authors made various claims about recent legislations that would supposedly prevent large numbers of Americans voting. They wrote:

Some bills would change the rules to make it easier for lawmakers to reject the votes of their citizens if they don’t like the outcome. Some replace professionals with partisan actors, who are motivated to see their candidate win. More election officials have attempted to make human mistakes criminalized, and in some instances threatened with prison.

I probably don’t need to tell you they provided no actual evidence or proof demonstrating the bills and laws that were passed will prevent people from voting. I’ve read plenty of op-eds from left-leaning activist media outlets, and not a single one has given an adequate explanation showing how the laws will stop people who wish to vote in elections.

Yet The Times’Although they make an inept claim Jan. 6, is still a threat, it’s clear that their fearmongering continues. They may be right when they insist that there is always a riot at U.S. Capitol Building every day. Actually, they’re 100 percent accurate.

The left BeatitudesEach day should be January 6. It will be Jan. 6 – for them.

The past several years have shown us that there is no shortage of opportunities for growth. New York TimesThe progressive activism movement has long since abandoned journalism and moved into full-time journalist mode. Their objective is not to inform the American public; it is to influence them to support the Democrats’ agenda. For the publication’s media activists, their goal is to help Democratic politicians stay in power. This means that they need to work with the party and its members in order for them the best chance of amplifying the party’s message.

It is already clear that the Democrats have been exploiting the Jan. 6, riot by using its House Select committee. The committee is said to be trying to find out the causes of the incident. Recent announcements made by a merry group of Democratic legislators indicated that they intend to release the findings.

Even Mr. Magoo knows this is just cynical political politicking. Democrats know that there is little they can run for in the midterm elections. Their best chance of winning the election is portraying conservatives the same people who protested against the U.S. Capitol Building.

The New York TimesThe piece shows how the media activist outlet intends to make every effort to aid the Democrats to weaponize January 6. They are just as interested in the cause of Jan. 6th that the party they support. So even if it means pushing the riot daily, they’ll do it with a smile.

Unfortunately for them, Americans are far more concerned about kitchen table issues, and there isn’t a single family who is discussing the riot every day as they eat their flapjacks, eggs, and bacon in the morning. Again, the question is: What other option does the Left have?
