Carefully edited quotes and voice-overs over video that was not related were the order of the day.
After the hearing ended on Thursday, NewsMax posted the following:
Here is a contemporary report on Trump’s condemning the attack on the Capitol published by Newsmax on Jan. 6, which was headlined “Trump Urges Peace, Protesters to ‘Go Home'”:
“‘I know your pain. I know you’re hurt,’ Trump said to begin a 62-second video on Twitter from what appeared to be the Rose Garden at the White House. ‘We had an election that was stolen from us. It was a landslide election … But you have to go home now. We have to have peace. We have to have law and order. We have to respect our great people in law and order. We don’t want anybody hurt.’
“Twitter has since taken down the video and locked Trump’s account for 12 hours.
“The video, which Twitter first slapped with a warning that it could not be retweeted or liked due to a ‘risk of violence,’ followed about an hour after Trump posted a similar message.
“‘Please support our Capitol Police and Law Enforcement,’ the first of two posts read. ‘They are truly on the side of our country. Stay peaceful!’
“Trump added: ‘I am asking for everyone at the U.S. Capitol to remain peaceful. No violence! Remember, WE are the party of law & order – respect the Law and our great men and women in Blue. Thank you!'”
Twitter made sure that President Trump’s message of peace did not get out. When President Trump’s remarks at his rally were quoted, the committee somehow omitted the sentence “I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.”
President Trump’s statement that those attending the rally were good people was superimposed over the rioters to give the impression that he supported the riots. It’s interesting that the committee chose to do that after Democrats bailed out some of the more destructive rioters from the summer of 2020. It seems to me that posting bail for rioters might actually be supporting their actions.
It is amazing to me that members of the news media, who are paying the same prices at the gas pump and the supermarket as the rest of us, are working so hard to keep President Trump from regaining the Presidency. I guess they know that he is on to them and will find ways to go around them. The crooks in Washington are afraid he will expose their crimes and hold them accountable. It’s not a good situation.
