by Peter Brimelow, The Unz Review:
Not content with treading on Christmas with Hanukkah etc., the Democrat-Media Complex apparently has now decided to swamp Epiphany, traditionally the end of the Christmas season, with mass public ululations about their January 6 Capitol Insurrection Hoax. Thus Witchfinder in-chief Merrick Garland, in an overwrought speech opening the ritual, actually demanded a “moment of silence” for five (?) police officers who subsequently died [AG Merrick Garland delivers remarks ahead of ‘solemn’ anniversary of the Capitol riot and vows the DOJ has ‘no higher priority’ than holding those involved ‘accountable’, Business Insider, January 5, 2022 ] But Garland must know, and he must know that we know, that not a single one of these deaths was in any way caused by Trump supporters, whereas the deaths of Trump supporters Ashli Babbitt, and arguably Kevin Greeson and Rosanne Boyland, if not more, certainly were caused by police action. The only explanation: Garland incapable of processing his hypocrisy because he is part of a political coalition that is systematically more hysterical than the white American norm. Unfortunately, his coalition is now in control of the U.S. and is attempting a communist coup—while it can.
The 2021 Capitol Insurrection Hoax, like the 2017 Charlottesville Unite The Right Rally and subsequent Charlottesville Narrative Collapse, point to a truth about the media landscape as it has emerged since the post-Trump Tech Oligarch internet crackdown, in alliance with vigilantes like the ADL and the SPLC.
Because of the internet, it is still possible, although now much more difficult because of post-2016 deplatforming, shadow-banning etc., to find Politically Incorrect facts and analyses. This situation is similar to, but not quite as bad as, that in the pre-Reagan Era (I remember!), when patriots were with difficulty able to inform themselves, under the Main Stream Media’s radar, via the direct-mail revolution pioneered by Richard Viguerie and others. But it’s not what the internet originally promised.
Thus the net effect of the internet has been to make it easier for the Regime Media to co-ordinate its Narratives—and to punish deviation among fellow professionals. That’s why you never see any Regime Media reference to Trump’s claims of election fraud without the adjective “baseless” or “unproven” attached as if by a software program, although there’s plenty of reason to doubt what went on in 2020 and earlier media ethics would have required an impartial affect i.e. “alleged election fraud”.
And thus the Regime Media was able to totally invert the truth about Charlottesville, so that a lawful rally in defense of the Robert E. Lee statue, which was deprived of police protection and attacked by communist paramilitaries, became a neo-Nazi riot. An example of punished deviation: Thus Taylor Lorenz, then of The Hill and now of New York Times obediently deleted tweets (viewable here), saying James Fields’s car was being swarmed by Antifa and Fields may have acted in self-defense, after pressure from the Left.
And even more dramatically, the January 6 Mostly Peaceful Protest, which was obviously a Kavanaugh-type incursion into the Capitol, then unattacked by police, has been inverted into an “insurrection”—even though none of the participants were armed, in significant contrast to Charlottesville, where many patriots were legally carrying—but, still, no-one was shot.
In the year since the January 6 Mostly Peaceful Protest, and proving that internet-enabled Alternative Media still lives, wonderful work has been done, particularly by Revolver.News in exposing the role of government agent provocateurs, and by American Greatness’s Julie Kelly, in exposing police brutality and, especially, the appalling conditions in which patriots are held in the Garland Archipelago. Her book January 6: How Democrats Used the Capitol Protest to Launch a War on Terror Against the Political Right is just out.

VDARE.com Editor Peter Brimelow was not at the January 6 Patriot protests at the U.S. Capitol, just as he was not at the 2017 Charlottesville Unite The Right Rally (although PayPal cut VDARE.com off anyway).
But afterwards, on January 15, he tweeted:
He was right. We’re going to show here that quite enough video footage exists to make that case.
It’s just that our Lying Press doesn’t want to make it.
Let’s start off by saying that, if Trump were a Democrat, the Lying Media would be pointing out that
- There is ample precedent for protestors invading the Capitol.
Anti-Kavanaugh feminists did it in 2018. And Democrats applauded them.
Hundreds were arrested for invading the Capitol, including comedienne Amy Schumer, a relative of New York Senator Chuck Schumer.
But we can find no reports that anyone was seriously punished—least of all Amy Schumer.
Labor union activists invaded the Wisconsin State Capito l in 2011–and stayed for a month. Again, Democrats applauded them.
To be clear, I haven't 'changed my view'. I've kept an open mind throughout. I scorn the media's silencing of dissenting scientists, the general celebration of vaccine profiteering, the unscientific discounting of natural immunity, and the divisive use of mandates to scapegoat https://t.co/83L1UXR4ga

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
