Frequently, American voters just want to be assured of where the candidates for office they support stand on important issues. In today’s tumultuous political landscape, that often seems impossible. Politicians are skilled at parsing their words to project a desired narrative.
This practice could be equally attributed to a desire to “cover their own butts”. One prominent Republican politician seems to have mastered this skill. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, the long-time Kentucky Senator, is a gifted speaker.
However, the problem isn’t always about how eloquently McConnell voices his points of view, but what those viewpoints actually are. Steadfast conservatives, especially those who support President Donald Trump, have sincere issues with the sham January 6 commission.
Despite being the highest-ranking conservative voice in the United States Senate, Mitch McConnell doesn’t seem to espouse these same views. In fact, in a recent interview caught on video, McConnell actually parroted the talking points being used by the liberal left.
First, McConnell called the chaos that happened on January 6, a “violent insurrection”. There was violence, albeit extremely limited. However, no one has yet to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the Capitol Hill protests gone awry were an insurrection.
“We all were here. We saw what happened,” McConnell said in response to a question from CNN’s Manu Raju. “It was a violent insurrection for the purpose of trying to prevent the peaceful transfer of power after a legitimately certified election, from one administration to the next. That’s what it was.”
The reference to the suspicious way in which the storming of the Capitol unfolded as an “insurrection”, is an exclusive talking point used by Democrats. Few, if any, staunch conservatives believe that January 6 was anything remotely resembling an insurrection.
Was there violence? To some degree, that is obvious. Was January 6 an unfortunate and unflattering representation of our democracy? Sure, it was. However, calling it an insurrection is both inaccurate and a politically charged comment to incite discontent.

So, why would a man with as much political clout as Mitch McConnell use these words? We can’t come up with any viable excuse, except Mitch is trying to “cover his own butt”. In the same respect, McConnell also denounced another situation within his own party.
The Republican National Committee (RNC) recently voted unanimously to censor Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney and Illinois Congressman Adam Kinzinger. Cheney and Kinzinger are the ONLY two Republicans brazen enough to sit on Nancy Pelosi’s crooked January 6 commission.
This pair of Republicans In Name Only (RINOs) joined eight other weak-kneed conservatives who voted for the bogus second impeachment attempt of President Donald Trump. Cheney has already gotten the boot by the GOP in Wyoming.
Despite both Cheney and Kinzinger being turncoats towards the Republican Party, McConnell also denounced the RNC’s censorship of these two traitors. Each one is clearly trying to protect their political clout by working to undermine conservative values.
These two have one agenda. They want to sever President Trump’s connection to the Republican Party and prevent him from running for office again. Good luck with both of those idiotic ambitions.
But as with his poor choice of words describing the Capitol Hill chaos, why would Mitch McConnell denounce his own party’s committee for doing their job? The RNC speaks for the majority of true conservatives. Millions believe that Cheney and Kinzinger are abominations.
Otherwise, it would prove devastating for the Republican Party as a whole. But like clockwork, Mitch McConnell took the side of an issue that avoided him taking a courageous stance. He was speaking to the poster child for liberal fake news, CNN.
When asked about the January 6 commission, McConnell responded, “It was a violent insurrection for the purpose of trying to prevent the peaceful transfer of power after a legitimately certified election from one administration to the next.” “That’s what it was.”
However, countless hours of video and sworn testimony from these sham hearings prove otherwise. January 6, was an unfortunate event. It was both chaotic and troublesome. These protests that turned riotous are troublesome because of how they were allowed to happen.
But no one wants to dig deep and expose the complete truth. How did a few hundred angry protesters turn into a chaotic mob? Knowing full-well something was going to happen on January 6, why wasn’t the Capitol more fortified against such?
How did a bunch of citizens manage to take control of the United States Capitol? This was an abomination on many fronts. But it was not an insurrection. Imagine what terrorists or otherwise anti-American adversaries think about all this. You can bet it caught their attention.
Could the U.S. Capitol be such an easy push over? Truthfully, no, it could not. That’s the issue. To have allowed a non-military invasion of the Capitol walls with virtually no resistance should be a red flag to something else. But no one wants to explore the possibility this was staged.
It’s because the only people investigating the “January 6 protests gone awry” have an agenda. The goal is not to find the truth. Their aim is to destroy President Donald Trump. Now it seems Mitch McConnell is helping. How sad that it appears Mitch is a traitor to his party as well.
