A filmmaker who is expected to testify in the Democratic party’s made-for-TV January 6th spectacle Thursday night has copped to an inconvenient truth about the “insurrection” narrative.
Documentary maker Nick Quested admitted in a since-deleted social media post from the day of the Capitol riot that the doors were left open, Breitbart reported.
Democratic party’s J6 narrative exposed by their own witness
The filmmaker, who followed the Proud Boys up to and during the riot, had said that “someone in authority” left the door open “and the “mob walked in.”
“The proud boys were organized and together. How many police were there at 11:22 a.m. on the steps of the capital. I count 1. This is a deliberate act. Someone in authority left the door open and the mob walked in. #maga #riot #capitol #sedition, #senate #congress this is the first time I hear #fightfortrump. Where does it go now?” the Instagram post read.
Quested will be one of two witnesses, the other being an injured police officer, at the first of several public hearings Democrats have planned on their “investigation” into the so-called insurrection. Suffice to say that Americans probably won’t be hearing about any open doors when Quested testifies.
There has long been speculation on the right that the Capitol riot was instigated by partisan forces looking for an opportunity to delegitimize the MAGA movement. Much of this conjecture has centered on whether the Capitol was left deliberately unguarded and what role federal informants played.
Democrats have vehemently and consistently blamed Donald Trump and, by implication, anyone on the right who played any role, however lawful or peaceful, in challenging Biden’s legitimacy in the aftermath of the 2020 election.
Desperate Dems televise show trial
Despite these charges, the unrest began before Trump had finished speaking at a separate, entirely peaceful “Stop the Steal” protest. Less than half of Americans now agree that Trump was responsible. What’s more, the most exhaustive investigation in Department of Justice history has also failed to establish that the riot was the result of a planned conspiracy.
While there is no question that some violence occurred that day, Democrats have exaggerated the event, comparing it to Pearl Harbor and 9/11 to paint their political enemies as a shadowy fifth column of domestic terrorists.
With few if any achievements to show off to voters before the midterm elections, Democrats are all but certain to rehash familiar themes contrasting Republicans and “democracy” during Thursday’s primetime spectacle. Melodrama is all but certain. But a continued focus on a riot that occurred some 17 months ago is sure to strike many as tone-deaf as Americans suffer the worst inflation in decades.
Democrats are promising to share the “findings” of the partisan January 6th committee, which has spent the past year conducting what is, effectively, a show trial targeting Trump allies. Two “witnesses,” Peter Navarro and Steve Bannon, are facing criminal charges for refusing to cooperate.
