Biden And Harris Gaslight Public Regarding Capitol Protests
Biden And Harris Gaslight Public Regarding Capitol Protests
Gaslight is their modus operandi. Today, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris blatantly flipped the narrative and are busy gaslighting the public into believing that what happened yesterday was far worse than ANY of the wonderful peaceful protests that have taken place since May.
Joe Biden was mad!
“They weren’t protesters, don’t dare call them protesters. They were a riotous mob, insurrectionists domestic terrorists. It’s that basic, it’s that simple,” Biden said during an event in Wilmington, Delaware, to introduce his nominees to lead the Justice Department. “And I wish we could say we couldn’t see it coming, but that’s not true, we could see it coming.”
“No one can tell me that if it had been a group of Black Lives Matter protesting yesterday, they wouldn’t have been treated very, very differently from the mob of thugs that stormed the Capitol,” he said, recalling the words of his granddaughter.”
Whoa Nelly! That’s a whole load of gaslighting right there! Let’s unpack this for a minute shall we? I watched last night as the media went right into new narrative combat mode. And sure enough, the words that popped out are the same damned words that Joe Biden is using.
The guidance went out to all the newsrooms and, evidently to the Biden team.
NPR guidance: we won’t be calling the people who stormed the Capitol ‘protestors’ – they are ‘pro-Trump extremists’ and what they are doing is ‘insurrection’.— Lulu (@lourdesgnavarro) January 6, 2021
Yup. Narrative! And the Biden team is using the same playbook. Kamala added fuel to the gaslight fire with her remarks.

Here we go. The Biden Harris team is now hard at work to convince Americans that all those involved yesterday are thugs, domestic terrorists, and insurrectionists. Meanwhile all of those who looted, burned, and destroyed huge swaths of Minneapolis, Louisville KY, Portland, and attacked federal buildings were wonderful peaceful beings who didn’t deserve to get tear-gassed or hit with projectiles by those mean nasty police people.
By damn, you almost have to admire the gaslighting talent they exhibit. Almost.
Both Biden and Harris have now used their platform today to stoke MORE division, and they did so with a highly concerning racial undertone.
According to both Biden and Harris, law enforcement has different standards when it comes to how they treat white thug rioters versus how they’ve treated the peaceful BLM protestors over the last nine months.
““I got a text from my granddaughter. She sent me a photo of military people in full military gear, scores of them lining the steps of the Lincoln Memorial because of a protest by Black Lives Matter. She said ‘Pap, this isn’t fair,’” Biden said. “A mob of folks stormed the Capitol. Well, we all know that’s true. And it is unacceptable, totally unacceptable. The American people saw it in plain view. And I hope it sensitizes them to what we have to do.””
Here’s the problem with Biden’s assertions regarding the big mean National Guard protecting the Capitol, the Lincoln Monument and more this summer. DC Mayor Bowser then, didn’t want the National Guard deployed. And in regards to the events of yesterday? First she only requested 340 Guard members to assist with the crowds yesterday. Secondly, she insisted they be UNARMED. Third, Bowser didn’t want any additional federal support unless conditions are met.
“To be clear, the District of Columbia is not requesting other federal law enforcement personnel and discourages any additional deployment without immediate notification to, and consultation with, MPD if such plans are underway,” Bowser tweeted along with a picture of the letter she sent to Acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen, Acting Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller, and Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy.
She then went on to brag about how READY the Metro PD was for anything. This is the same mayor who decided to put huge BLM letters on a major DC street just to thumb the city’s nose at President Trump this summer. So, despite Biden’s assertions, a significant portion of fault lies with Bowser. Not that anyone in the media nor Democrats will admit it.
Yesterday’s events have this Republic reeling. Yesterday’s events shouldn’t have happened. The media has conducted themselves horribly through this. Social media getting into the mindwipe game is causing shivers to run up and down my spine. There are many many people at fault for yesterday’s events and WHAT LED to yesterday’s events.
Now we need to add Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to that list. Their blatant gaslighting today is atrocious.
While yesterday was hideous and should never have happened, let me ask you a couple of questions.
Were priceless statues or paintings destroyed in the Capitol?
Was anything set on fire in the Capitol?
Entire car dealerships torched
Entire businesses completely vandalized and destroyed
Vehicles destroyed and multiple people attacked and some killed across multiple cities
Multiple buildings damaged and/or set on fire.
Yet here we have Joe Biden and Kamala Harris telling the world that the events of yesterday were more physically damaging than any of the violent riots and protests we’ve watched for nine months.
THEY DID USE TEAR GAS YESTERDAY.— Pradheep J. Shanker (@Neoavatara) January 7, 2021
Furthermore, 4 people died. We largely did not seen any death tolls like that all summer.
Again, these are Democrats IGNORING FACTS AND REALITY, and gaslighting America on race instead.
Didn't we have enough of a President doing that already? https://t.co/W4kXrcxPY0
As someone who has covered many of the riots last year, I can say this narrative is simply false. Tear gas, pepper balls, pepper spray, and flashbangs were all used yesterday, just as they were used on rioters in 2020. https://t.co/WdjJXyfa6X— Julio Rosas (@Julio_Rosas11) January 7, 2021
Forget all the unity and healing crap! The Biden Harris Presidency has a new nickname: The Gaslight Presidency.
