Pro-Hamas Insurrection on Capitol Hill. Will The ‘O18’ Committee Start Hearings?

 

Video from today on Capitol Hill — sure looks like an “insurrection” to me (if you accept that J6 fit that definition, which I absolutely, positively do not) and I am left to wonder, in all good faith, when will the “O18” “Threat To Our Democracy” Committee will commence hearings on this “attempt to take over “Our Democracy” by force”? Anyone, anyone?

This is a 15-minute video taken by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, which shows the true madness of what is happening on Capitol Hill this very day.

Another view of this dangerous mob of Hate Israel First, Love Hamas Forever “peaceful” protesters trying to destroy one of the great monuments of “Our Democracy”:

Is it almost downright surreal how similar the scenes are to January 6, except that the flags and banners are not the beautiful colors of Red, White, and Blue but seem to be a sea of black,  most fitting as it represents the mourning caused by some of the most bloodthirsty animals on the face of the earth.

But they are so peaceful as they “protest” in favor of butchers who decapitate little infants.

Rep. Mary Miller sums it up:

Rep. Mary Miller

@RepMaryMiller

INSURRECTIONISTS are storming the Capitol in support of Hamas. They are interrupting official government proceedings. Will there be federal charges? Solitary confinement? Will FBI raid their homes? WHO PAID for their buses, signs & t-shirts? I’ll join

@RepMTG
to get answers!

This is detestable, despicable, and evil. Just as disgusting is the fact that we all know tomorrow will be just another day in the Potemkin Village we currently call “our government” as if none of this ever happened. No arrests, no indictments, no solitary confinement, no SWAT team invasions of homes and families, no official action or even statements, a/k/a blather, by any official who took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America.

God Help us.

    You keep importing these kinds of crazies, eventually the Jew-hating gets ratcheted up enough and a majority of politicians will start pandering to it.

    As Zafar shows, these are Jewish groups. They and their supporters on Twitter are quick to point out that they are Jews and not Zionists. Whatever distinction that is supposed to be.

    Point is there is diversity in opinion and that not all supporters of a cease fire are out to kill Jews. That not all supporters of a cease fire are scary immigrants.

    You can disagree with them without pretending they’re someone else. Why not?

    This is the typical progressive scenario.

    Assigning someone an ethnic or religious identity because of their opinions?

    You can try and make the case with cited examples and links, but in this case it was Conservatives who did that and swallowed it whole with a certain gullibility.

    I am not saying that Dotorimuk did it with the intent to deceive, but why did he feel that what he ‘felt’ was obviously the truth and why did the rest of you feel that you could accept it without question?

    I was not pointing out any ethnicity.  I don’t recognize — that is SEE — any particular ethnicity in anyone.  These people could be, in no particular order, Latin-Americans, Palestinians, WASPs or Jews.  It doesn’t particularly matter to me.  And “That not all supporters of a cease fire are scary immigrants.”

    I was referring to the “J6” “O18” contrast, and that irrespective of ethnicity, this is an affluent, American, LEFT WING (or progressive or socialist or communist, if one prefers) thing.

    DC has not been the South in a long, long time. Strictly carpet baggers. Northern Virginia is the same, though the change was more recent. In Northern Virginia there’re allergy menues and pronoun catering in the dining establishments. And lawyers. Everywhere. All the time. Southern Virginia still serves sweet tea and hush puppies by default, and grits are on every breakfast menu.

    Why is this pro-Palestinian protest not an insurrection?  Well, it was obviously not an attempt to overturn an election, nor was it advertised as an attempt to overturn the US government. 

    The police did, in fact, arrest over 300 people for what I suspect were charges of trespassing and disruption, but I doubt any of them will be charged with sedition.

    And probably dropped them off at the nearest bus stop; merely for show and for the cameras.

    Will they be spending a year in solitary in the DC Gulag or have they already been released? I don’t think any of the rioters on January 6 were charged with sedition either. Just sedition-lite charges. How many of these 300 will prosecutors abuse into committing suicide?

    This one?

    https://rollcall.com/2023/10/18/capitol-police-arrest-gaza-ceasefire-protesters/

    Protesters calling for a ceasefire in Gaza shut down parts of Independence Avenue and demonstrated for several hours in the Cannon House Office Building rotunda Wednesday. More than 300 people were arrested, a Capitol Police spokesperson said around 6:30 p.m., adding that the number could rise.

    The protest was organized by two Jewish advocacy groups, Jewish Voice for Peace and If Not Now, and began at noon on the National Mall before migrating to the Capitol complex.

    You may not know this, but some of the biggest supporters of Palestinians and Hamas are secular Jews. This does not absolve them from the most severe criticism possible for being supporters of some of the worst terrorists in the world. I don’t see them as being any different than the Palestinians who support Hamas. They don’t get any extra credit for being born Jewish. Conservatives don’t judge people by the color of their skin or by their ethnicity or nationality. We judge them based on their behavior.

    It is important to point out that with a two minute Google search one can determine for themselves whether Jewish Voice for Peace is actually a “peaceful” organization or just another well-funded group of street fanatics who enjoy a 501(c)(3) exemption even though they make statements like “We shut down Congress” about their latest “insurrection.” Here are several links to articles about what this organization really is, should one care to take a look for themselves, here, here, here. Or, one can just continue to believe the myth that these are actual “peaceful” Jews who are in no shape or form whatsoever anti-Semitic or radical or dangerous.

    I think so, but less than 0.5% of Australians are Jewish.  It’s a very small community, so there are fewer community organisations in total numbers than there are in countries with larger Jewish communities.

    Thank you. I will definitely read this extensive article; the following comment is based on prior reading about this organization and just doing a quick scan of this article. It seems to be a most fair conclusion that this organization which has the word “Peace” in its title is not very interested in peace at all. Thanks again for that link; I think this whole area is ripe for some much deeper research I have made into it.
