The Capitol Storm was not like Charlottesville, because the overwhelming majority of the people in America hated the Charlottesville leadership. Richard Spencer in particular is just a fundamentally repulsive person, as were the rest of the leaders of the event.
In contrast with that, the Storming of the Capitol is being widely supported by the people. The optics simply couldn’t have been any better.
Donald Trump’s approval rating has literally gone up.
The Rasmussen poll, one of the most accurate polls of the 2020 election, finds President Trump’s approval is actually rising after Wednesday‘s protests.
As Democrats move to impeachment and some establishment Republicans call for the 25th Amendment to remove Trump, the poll finds 48% approve of the President’s job performance.
A source close to the polling firm tells Newsmax that the rolling survey saw Trump’s approval soar to 51% on Thursday night.
That statement he made was horrible and inexcusable, but other than that, the social upshot of the events of January 6 are very good. People are mad, and they are seeing the government and the Republicans for what they are: traitors, all of them.
That having been said: it is being treated like Charlottesville by the establishment. We are currently seeing a crackdown on freedom of speech that is tens of times worse than what we saw after Charlottesville. We’re actually seeing an absolute wipeout.
I couldn’t possibly cover all of it, but let’s just look at a bit of it.
Trump was banned from Twitter permanently, and banned from Facebook indefinitely.
Here are some other prominent Twitter accounts that have been banned:
That’s by no means exhaustive, and it is just the beginning.
Shockingly, Trump has also been banned from using his email list.
The Parler app, where many of the banned have been moving, was banned from the Google Play Store, and Apple is going to ban them in the next few hours, having issued an impossible ultimatum.
The Jews are calling for a completely shutdown of DLive.
DLive has responded by banning Nick Fuentes, who was their most popular streamer.
Others have been banned, including obviously Baked Alaska.
DLive basically just collapsed its own platform, for whatever reason. I guess fear? Don’t know. It’s not like they’re going to be forgiven.
Shopify has banned Donald Trump merch stores:
Random people who attended the rally are being fired, just for being there.
It goes on and on and on – and it’s going to get a whole helluva lot worse in the coming days.
They are saying: if you are one of the 75 million people that supports Donald Trump, you are no longer allowed to have access to communication. They are also going to start shutting down ISPs that serve banned websites. It’s just going to be like nothing you can even imagine.
