Survey: 21 Million Americans Say Biden Is ‘Illegitimate’ And Trump Should Be Restored By Violence


47 million American adults – nearly 1 in 5 – agree with the statement that “the 2020 election was stolen from Donald Trump and Joe Biden is an illegitimate president.” Of those, 21 million also agree that “use of force is justified to restore Donald J. Trump to the presidency.”

. . . .

This group of 21 million who agree both that force is justified to restore Trump and that Biden is an illegitimate president has two additional views that are also on the fringes of mainstream society:

Some people with insurrectionist sentiments hold one of these political views but not the other, suggesting there are multiple ways of thinking that lead a person toward the insurrectionist movement.

Jan. 6 rioters exploited little-known Capitol weak spots: A handful of unreinforced windows


Video shows some of the first rioters to break through the police line running past 15 reinforced windows, making a beeline for a recessed area on the Senate side of the building, where two unreinforced windows and two doors with unreinforced glass were all that stood between them and hallways leading to lawmakers inside who had not begun to evacuate.

A rioter’s fist cracked the glass of one window, video posted to social media shows. A stolen police riot shield and a wooden pole finished the job. In seconds, the unreinforced glass gave way in a single sheet. Rioters poured through the window. Similar methods were used to break glass in at least three other locations. . . .

The four unreinforced windows and doors that were the first points of entry on Jan. 6 are all in a recessed alcove, shielded by exterior walls on three sides. They were not the first windows, nor the easiest to reach for rioters storming up the Capitol steps.
These videos of leftists trashing the place on Jan 6 are uncommon due to the fact that democrats are still refusing to release thousands of videos Americans want to be released in the interest of fairness, truth, and accuracy.

Not to worry. You just had to read further.

The millions of dollars spent to harden the Capitol after the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, the 1998 shooting of two Capitol Police officers at an entrance checkpoint and Sept. 11 were targeted at protecting the highest number of lives in case of a bomb or explosion.

“Nobody ever talked about the potential of an insurrection and thousands of people storming the Capitol,” said former architect of the Capitol Alan Hantman, who held the role from 1997 to 2007.
Democrats lie when they claim the peaceful protesters were attempting an insurrection. Leftist democrats organized the Jan 6 violence to interrupt that day's scheduled investigation of the hundreds of credible voter fraud claims from around the country. The upheavals that day did no violence like the hundreds of leftist protests last year which did billions of dollars in damage, injured more than a thousand cops, and killed several innocent Americans. Democrats are not concerned enough about the damage done by leftists in last years' protests to pursue charges against the offenders in most cases.

You should be sorry for calling the architect of the Capitol a retarded leftist.
If the Capitol architect thinks that Trump supporters were attempting to commit a coup then the Capitol architect is an idiot.
Much as you might like to see it go down the memory hole, it happened.

654 arrests so far.

Democrats are lagging behind other tyrant nations in persecuting and prosecuting their political enemies, but they are very similar in their methods. Ungodly tyrants routinely violate the human and civil rights of their opponents as they illegally, immorally, unjustly, and unmercifully persecute them to the fullest extent of the law and far beyond.

American democrats are not just taking their ideas from Alinsky's Rules For Radicals, but also from bloody fascist dictators in places like Russia, North Korea, Communist China, the Muslim caliphates, Cuba, and so forth.

You think every single insurrectionist in the mob was arrested? Seriously? 😂
I don't believe any leftist agitator of violence or crooked official has been arrested for his part for helping create the false impression that patriotic Americans were completely out of control, threatening lawmakers with bombs, guns, and violence in some sort of supposedly planned coup attempt.

If 98% of the mob of southern white democrat racists thought lynching blacks for being black was right, that does not make it right. Likewise, if 200 million Americans believe unproven democrat claims that no voter fraud was committed that does not prove no fraud was committed. Anyone who thinks violent rioting is the way to effect changes in government is an idiot.

A criminal investigation into Trump’s 2 January call prodding Georgia’s secretary of state, Brad Raffensperger, to “just find” him 11,780 votes to block Joe Biden’s win in the state is making headway. The Georgia district attorney running the inquiry is now also sharing information with the House committee investigating the 6 January attack on the Capitol in Washington DC.

The Georgia investigation’s merits were bolstered in late September by the release of a well-documented 107-page study from the Brookings Institution detailing Trump’s high-pressure drive to block Biden’s win in the state. The report concluded that Trump faced “substantial risk of possible state charges predicated on multiple crimes”.​
Boasting extensive documentation from the public record, the report notes that Trump’s broad effort to nullify the outcome in Georgia included personal contacts with the governor, the state attorney general and the secretary of state’s chief investigator.​
Not that I think charges are likely, but at least it's there for the historical record.

The Brookings Institute has become a radical left-wing anti-American Marxist organization. Their hit piece on Trump is full of lies, distortions, misinterpretations, and leftist intolerance and bias.

Washington, D.C. is known for its monuments, but it is also known for its “ivory tower” think tanks. These institutions can serve a valuable role in providing dispassionate and empirical analysis in divided times. One of the pre-eminent D.C. think tanks is the Brookings Institution, which has nearly half-a-billion dollars in assets and deep ties to political leaders on the left.

Well, let's hope charges come about anyway. :)

Excerpts:

Transcript of an interview with Former National Security Council Senior Director for European and Russian Affairs, Fiona Hill, that aired Sunday, October 10, 2021, on "Face the Nation."

HILL: ... the moment is incredibly dangerous. I mean, we are in a dangerous moment...

I'm seeing the populism on the right is the most threatening at the moment. The populism on the left contributes to the overall atmosphere of polarization, but very sadly, it's on the right that we're seeing the main threats. Its actors on the right, not just in Congress and in the Senate, you know, places where you'd actually expect people to be upholding their oath of office to the Constitution and to the people. But it's actors on that right who are also basically calling for violence against fellow Americans and at all times are talking down the integrity of the election system...


MARGARET BRENNAN: Well, and that's exactly why I've been asking that is the groundwork being laid question, because certainly that seemed to be the message here. You know, in the book Peril, Robert Costa and Bob Woodward wrote, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley, at the end of it, is quoted as comparing the Jan. 6 siege of the Capitol to The Great Dress Rehearsal. You're a Russia analyst, you know immediately what that phrase is, which is what Lenin called an uprising that preceded the revolution. I read that and I said, "Dear God."

HILL: Yeah.

MARGARET BRENNAN: I mean, he, the general, is saying that this is a precursor potentially to further violence? Is this overstating things in a historical sense?

HILL: He's not overstating it at all, because I mean, we all saw in real time what happened on Jan. 6 at the Capitol building, and Gen. Milley was absolutely right. Any student of history, but any observer of even American politics over the last decade- I mean, when have we seen something like this before? We haven't. Not in our lifetimes. We've seen episodes, you know, particularly during the civil rights movement and of course, during Vietnam, where there were protests. But storming the Capitol building of the United States? I mean, this is exactly the thing that you think of in historical revolutions. Storming the Bastille during the French Revolution, storming the Winter Palace during the Russian Revolution that General Milley was alluding to. And as he was saying, we've seen many historical episodes where there is violence, people discount it. They think that this is just a passing occurrence. Vice President Pence has been downplaying it, even though he would have been targeted. He was targeted. They wanted to lynch him. And then people sweeping this away, saying nothing happened here. And the next time around, you get the real thing where people actually do seize those major buildings. And I said that also in the book that this was, in effect, a dress rehearsal for something that could be happening near term in 2022. 2024. We've got election cycles here that will heighten the tensions. And once people start talking about violence, once the threshold is crossed, we're in a danger zone.

MARGARET BRENNAN: But there are so many people who will look at the investigation Chairman Schiff is working on and say that's just politics, that's just political messaging. They'll look at the violence- I've heard people tell me this on Capitol Hill and just say, that's a riot. A few crazy people. Not the precursor or a- a dry run of a coup, as the general put it, in the terms of that you are right now. I mean, how do you respond to people saying you're overreacting essentially?

HILL: Well, people are saying that because they don't have any personal experience of these kinds of events. But I can certainly tell you as an immigrant, as somebody who came to the United States in 1989 against the backdrop of the crumbling of the Berlin Wall and the backdrop of the end of the Cold War, I also know immigrants like myself who came from war zones, who came from places like the former Yugoslavia or places like Sri Lanka, which is being pulled apart by civil war and conflict. Afghanistan, Syria, you know, you name it. All of the people that I know who are immigrants are looking around and saying, can't people see this? We've come from war torn societies. All of the hallmarks are here.

Leftists bomb, assault, burn, and kill in their rampages but think right-wingers are the biggest threat to America for espousing conservative ideas.

Leftist rube: "Trump supporters must be hunted down and hauled off to jail before they bomb the Capitol and shoot innocent legislators."

Historical facts: Leftist protesters were the only ones who have ever bombed the Capitol and democrat presidents pardoned the perps in all three separate events. Also, a leftist protester has been the only one to have ever tried to mass murder congressmen.
