Kirk: Despite what the media claims,
Trump supporters are 'repulsed' by Capitol riots

Original Article

Posted By: Dreadnought, 1/11/2021 12:08:39 AM

The majority of working-class Trump supporters who traveled to DC last week were "repulsed" by Wednesday's riots that engulfed the Capitol in chaos and resulted in at least four deaths, conservative activist Charlie Kirk said Sunday. "The strength of the president's movement is about giving a voice to working people all across the country," Kirk told "The Next Revolution" host Steve Hilton on Sunday, "and I can tell you, working people who voted for the president were repulsed by what they saw. In fact, they were saddened." Kirk argued that Trump supporters gathered in the nation's capital to demand that lawmakers take various steps to preserve the integrity

I was far more repulsed by the way they are being portrayed, versus the way the media handled the summer of violent BLM riots across the country.

There WAS NO RIOT. A few antifa thugs infiltrated the peaceful demonstration and broke a few windows. Some of the Trump supporters stopped them in some cases, but weren't able to stop them in others. The most disgusting part has been the lying of the Enemedia about this.

As tempting as it is to run up the black flag and start slitting throats, the truth is that the headline of this article is true. Adherence to honorable methods of opposition are always the best way and most likely to attain something other than a pyrrhic victory. The time may come when a civil war is forced upon us, but we should not be the ones forcing it. Most of the invaders of the Capital were probably Antifa thugs, but at least some were legitimate Trump supporters. There are dumb bunnies in every burrow. Having said that, there is literally no possibility of anything approaching truth emanating from the MSM. The Progressive movement has been trying to nullify the Constitution for almost a century. Obama brought it into the open and Hillary was supposed to nail it down. The election fraud machine was in place in 2016, but they were so overconfident they did not fully implement it. In 2020 they got away with it due to the dysfunctional judiciary - including (no especially) the Supreme Court. The real culprits are not the liberal socialists boxes of rocks. As the fictional Pogo fictionally said, "We has met the enemy and he is us." Freedom loving citizens, Republicans, "old" Democrats, hLibertarians or whatever have voted the same career grifters back into office because they had more "clout." We need to very carefully primary the now exposed moral malignancies and replace them with decent citizen legislators. To do that we need an alternate media, alternate social networks, even an alternate economy. A few extra dollars spent with local merchants, who have been driven to the brink of bankruptcy by the engineered China Virus operation will help your local community. Convenient or not money spent with Amazon, etc., is going directly to destroying small business and funding the cancel culture. We are at a cusp of history and many, possibly most, Americans are just beginning to wake up.

I have no idea what happened at the capitol, and neither does anyone else at this stage. I see a lot of people speaking for Trump supporters, but Trump and his supporters have been cut off from speaking, so their views are not being heard. I am tired of the conservative media being repulsed by what happened at the capitol, when they do not know what happened either. They tell us not to jump to conclusions, but it appears they do.

I'm repulsed by antifa being able to false-flag an operation to look like MAGA supporters did it. I'm repulsed that we have a media that is worse than that in Russia and China. At least in those countries "jounalists" lives could be in danger if they didn't toe the party line. Here they do it of their own free will. I'm repulsed that our government is a sea of traitors such that finding any patriots is on par with finding hen's teeth. I'm repulsed that NOT ONE of our governmental bodies can be trusted (prove me wrong, military). I'm repulsed by the far-left big tech firms. I'm repulsed by the absolute degeneracy of our popular media and can absolutely understand why the muslims think America is polluting the world. I'm repulsed that this fight isn't about Constitutional government any more but has become an existential fight for survival, literally. I'm repulsed by the fact that I wonder if the country I grew up loving does indeed deserve to continue at all.

I was repulsed by Michael Pence not sending the disputed electors back to the State Legislatures as the Constitution required. So we’re the other peaceful protestors. Antifa/BLM infiltrators did some false flag community organizing that should make Hussein the Indonesian proud.

What riots? A few Antifa guys with bats, a cop shooting an unarmed woman, a few professional troublemaker,jog protestors, and a few Americans who did nothing. POTUS was speaking when Antifa was let in as s3curkty opened the doors and waved people in. I’m not repulsed at all. I’m bothered the “rioters” didn’t catch a couple of the criminal congresscreeps and made citizen arrests for fraud, sedition and treason.

"........ engulfed the Capitol in chaos and resulted in at least four deaths", One unarmed protestor killed by the police, 3 unarmed protestors had the misfortune to suffer a heart attack. Hardly the markers of a lethally murderous and chaotic attack on the Capitol. The Nature and range of damage within the capitol condemned but detais provided except for the door to Pelosi's office damaged, someone walking INSIDE the Capitol with Pelosis's lectern and one seat overturned: no evidence or detail of pillage, deliberate vindictive damage and destruction or arson anywhere! Chaos is the sister or protest gatherings everywhere, Chaos with no accompanying damage or destruction in its own is not a major crime anywhere, The False News Media and the poetical establishment reaction is very reminiscent of the Nazis, after their contrived burning of the Reichstag in Germany in January 1933 and the consequences for all their opposition parties and groups in Germany, with all membership proscribed, members criminalized and jailed, all their media outlets banned and expropriated, and the leadership interred without trial or set duration in first so called "re-education" concentration camps together with other social and criminal undesirables, the best known being Dachau outside MUnich

Hold on, this is FOX news which is now FAKE NEWS. There was no riot, I was there. Most of the Trump supporters were on the balcony waving flags and the others that were welcomed into the capital by the capital police. The real terrorists were the Antifa and BLM crowd. Let's get the story straight.

I have not been "repulsed" by anything I have seen from conservative voters this week. I have been "repulsed" by everything I have seen from Republican leadership and media this week. It epitomizes the beaten wife syndrome. As always, the Democrats will make any bad situation worse. I expect the same this week.

Mark Twain had it right when he said of the media of his day that if you did not read the newspapers that you are uninformed but if you do read the newspapers you are misinformed. When you expand that thought to the much expanded modern media what Twain said is certainly true today. There is no doubt that there are crazies and extremists on both sides of the political divide even though those willing to break the law for politically based reasons only amount to a very small percentage of the supporters of either the left or the right in America. Taking away the First Amendment rights from and canceling half the country on one side of the political divide by the media that has molded itself into the propaganda arm for the other side of the political divide will not win out or end well as long as there is a US Constitution. Common sense will tell you that.

I am repulsed by losing our freedom of speech, our freedom of religion, and our right to assemble. I am even more repulsed that our Supreme Court isn't repulsed by any of this. Even worse, they have ruled that we don't have "standing" to even hear our cases. I guess that when they come to take away our final protective freedom granted to us by our founders, we're going to have to use them as our founders intended.

Why do the "leaders" or "leading voices" on our side always have to capitulate? I heard several say, "Violence is never the answer." Oh, really?! I do believe it was one Jonah Goldberg who once wrote, and I'm paraphrasing, "We gave peace a chance, let's now give War a chance." I'm not advocating for war, but I am making the point that violence is not a shocking conclusion once you hit a tipping point -- and we've witnessed violence by the left for YEARS now -- not just in 2020...jump in the waaaay back machine and look at the Occupy Wall Street movement. Jump in the waaaay back machine and look at assault on our police officers -- ambush assaults no less -- in New York and Dallas. The left has been resorting to violence for years and we sit back and take it. It is utter nonsense that we are now being painted as violent radicals who want to topple the government. No, we are peace-loving, small government constitutionalists, who seek the rule of law and the blindness of justice. We are being denied both and it has become increasingly clear that the real powers that be...big tech and their masters in the CCP are pulling all of the strings. Did anyone notice today that Stripe has now banned the Trump campaign from using it's services to process credit cards? Think it is going to stop with Trump? It's not about Trump -- it is about ALL OF US. We are next on their list and they are being aided and abetted by their paid-for goons in Congress and the entrenched civilian agency hacks who write and enforce all the regulations. Not sure where we go from here, but I will admit that Joe Biden was right about one thing: We are headed for a long, dark winter.

Fake news and fake narrative the tactics I saw in the bum rush on the Capitol were ANTiFA and BLM. Trump supporters don't go to rallies carrying their 'gas masks'. This was a set up to hurt President Trump and expunge him forever. It won't work the democrats might own Washington the two coasts but will not roam out of their territory they conquered. We are now in chaos and possible physical civil war it seems that's what crazy Pelosi is pushing for. This is a FOX article and they are fake news.

You're wrong, Kirk. Speak for yourself and speak accurately about what happened, and quit bending over. These cretins will never respect you or what you have to say; give them the same treatment. Don't even side with them when they're right; we all know they change with the wind. Riots good for them but not for US. Besides, this was not a riot. I was not repulsed, and I was not saddened. The people inside should have stayed way past the curfew; they would have kept those evil demons from holding their kangaroo voting, and pence wouldn't have been able to change the rules on debating.

At least the Marxist mask is off. They are going for complete control. I am repulsed that the election was stolen in a few Democrat cities - Philadelphia, Pittsburg, Milwaukee, Detroit, Atlanta - by adding ballots and switching votes from Trump to Biden. The Supreme Court was repulsive because they disenfranchised half of America. We love Trump, best president of our lifetimes.

Repulsed? They were a bunch of grandparents with Antifa thrown in meant to create a riot and it was over pretty quickly. No, I was repulsed at the burning of Minneapolis, Portland and Seattle. The burning and vandalism of national monuments in Washington, D.C. the toppling of statues and the quivering spineless politicians who bowed to the thugs and the corporations who funded them while they burned small businesses. I am repulsed by the tech corporations who think they can take the First Amendment rights of Americans, the politicians who call for putting their opposing colleagues on no-fly lists. I am a student of history and this looks like Stalin and the bolsheviks to me and I am repulsed by the effort to clamp down on free speech by petty tyrants in both parties. They think we are stupid, dependent and afraid. I hope they are not right.

Politically motivated violence is wrong, disgusting, and not justifiable no matter the cause. But not according to CNN PrimeTime host Chris “Fredo” Cuomo and CNN Tonight host Don Lemon, during the Tuesday handoff between their shows. Essentially, the duo argued that the Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots from last spring and summer were cooler than last week’s Capitol Hill attack because they were “justified” and the cases were not “apples to apples.” Their griping was spurred on by this exchange between Cuomo and DHS Undersecretary Ken Cuccinelli, after the latter recalled the destructive violence that raged for months

A situational information report approved for release the day before the U.S. Capitol riot painted a dire portrait of dangerous plans, including individuals sharing a map of the complex's tunnels, and possible rally points for would-be conspirators to meet up

While hitting seven-o is a big birthday for anyone, Limbaugh said almost a year ago that he had been diagnosed with advanced lung cancer. Shortly before Christmas, an emotional Limbaugh said he was grateful to be outliving his doctors’ prognosis. “I wasn’t expected to make it to October and then to November and then to December and yet here I am,” Limbaugh told listeners.

But many women also saw something familiar.

He said the GOP is “paralyzed with fear.” “I had a lot of conversations with my Republican colleagues last night,” Mr. Crow said on MSNBC. “A couple of them broke down in tears talking to me and saying that they are afraid for their lives if they vote for this impeachment.” “My response was, you know not to be unsympathetic but welcome to the club,” he said. “That’s leadership. Our country is in a very challenging time.”

WASHINGTON – U.S. Rep. James Clyburn, D-S.C., wants a song about faith and resilience long revered in the Black community to become the national hymn and help toward uniting the country after centuries of racial turmoil. Clyburn, the House majority whip, plans to introduce a measure as early as this week that would make “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” known as the Black national anthem, the national hymn and give it a special place alongside the country’s anthem, "The Star-Spangled Banner." “To make it a national hymn, I think, would be an act of bringing the country together.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says to stem the spread of COVID-19, all Americans should wear a mask. The New York Times says if one mask works, maybe two will be twice as nice. “Football coaches do it. President-elects do it. Even science-savvy senators do it.

(Snip) Of course, there’s a drawback: “We run the risk of making it too hard to breathe.”

Right-wing pundit Rush Limbaugh turned 70 years old Tuesday — a landmark he wasn’t expecting to see. While hitting seven-o is a big birthday for anyone, Limbaugh said almost a year ago that he had been diagnosed with advanced lung cancer.

A column in his hometown publication the Southeast Missourian praised Limbaugh, a Cape Girardeau native, as “the first to develop a prominent place for conservatives in media”
