Why January 6 Theatrics Continue Even Now

Even after 2 years, Democrats continue to hype the January 6 riot with Soviet-style theatrical events like today’s Congressional Gold Medal presentations:

Democratic and Republican lawmakers assembled on Tuesday to award four Congressional Gold Medals to law enforcement officials who were present during the Jan. 6 Capitol riot…

It is unclear whether Capitol Hill police officer Michael Byrd received a medal for killing Ashli Babbitt in cold blood. Despite mainstream media lies to the contrary, that was the only death to directly result from the riot.

“Staring down deadly violence and despicable bigotry, our law enforcement officers bravely stood in the breach, ensuring that democracy survived on that dark day,” outgoing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) [demagogued cartoonishly] during the ceremony.

Getting carried away during a demonstration against perceived election fraud qualifies as “despicable bigotry” on the grounds that bigotry is whatever Democrats don’t like.

The partisan purpose of the spectacle was conspicuous:

As the law enforcement officials and their families walked past the congressional leaders to accept their medals, many conspicuously refused to shake the hands of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.).

They are to be shunned because all Republicans are guilty of any sins that can be laid at the feet of Trump supporters. It doesn’t matter that Trump has jumped the shark and is unlikely to be the Republican nominee in 2024.

No matter how dated and absurd it might sound to an outsider, January 6 demagoguery still keeps the base engaged by working it into a psychotic ecstasy of hatred for the enemy. It also serves to support the Democrat framing of political opposition as a security threat, to be dealt with by federal law enforcement rather than rational debate.

Classless political theater.
