For some reason U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has vengefully decided the ideal person to investigate the unseemly events on Jan. 6 is a left-wing conspiracy theorist who thinks that the Capitol riot may have been an inside job.
Can’t you just smell the unity?
Retired Gen. Russel Honore is the speaker’s pick and he’s a doozy.
Honore is ideologically the polar opposite of QAnon. We’ll call him RAnon.
He believes "white supremacy" and "institutional racism" plague the nation. He thinks the Second Amendment is a conditional right that is only to be exercised in certain, limited circumstances. Honore opposed to sending federal law enforcement officials to Portland to stop Antifa’s attack on a federal courthouse. He thinks the BLM riots were "infiltrated by violent actors." And Honore believes the Russia Collusion Delusion.
Before Pelosi choose him to be the overseer of her witch hunt, Honore had already decided the riot was an inside job.
He told MSLSD, I mean MSNBC, that Capitol Police "were either that stupid or ignorant, or they complicit. I think they were complicit."
And even before the speaker appointed him, Honore was ready to start hunting.
"A police chief has been fired, but now we need to look at a special investigation. Was he complicit along with the sergeant of arms in the House and the Senate? It gives [the] appearance of complicity," Honore stated. "He complied because he might have thought 45 [Mr. Trump] was coming to the Capitol, and they gave way to the protesters who easily breached the Capitol. This is a crying damn shame."
But Honore doesn’t just recklessly smear individuals.
He doesn’t have any problem with smearing the reputations of large groups, too.
He told radio host Joe Madison, "By percent, 30 to 40% of line officers are Trumpsters."
As if who you voted for determines your job performance. (Come to think of it, the vote did determine the job performance of 'the Resistance’ in the federal bureaucracy. We think the Capitol Police are more professional.)
Does Honore plan to purge any officers who voted for Trump?
And where did he get this figure?
It appears to belong to him alone.
Had Pelosi really wanted a thorough, impartial investigation she would have appointed a bipartisan committee that in turn could select someone to be the lead investigator.
That was not done. Pelosi did not contact a single Republican before anointing Honore.
We’re getting the feeling the outcome of this "investigation" has already been determined.
All that remains is to round up the left’s usual suspects.
