Last Jan. 6 the country was in turmoil because many people – undoubtedly in the tens of millions based on recent polling confirming vast swaths of the population believe Joe Biden cheated in the 2020 presidential race – rallied in Washington, and a few hundred followed an address by President Trump with break-ins and vandalism at the U.S. Capitol.
Some have been locked up since then, awaiting a court hearing and adjudication of their case, which often involves offenses like trespassing.
Their concern for an accurate ballot count was understandable, especially in light of evidence that has emerged since. For one thing, Mark Zuckerberg of Meta handed out nearly $420 million – mostly to leftist elections officials who spent the money liberally recruiting voters in Democrat-majority counties. A later investigation showed that strategy alone likely cost President Trump the White House.
Further, there was widespread suppression by both legacy and social media of accurate reports about the shenanigans in which the Biden family engaged with overseas companies and countries, including deals that involved both Russian and Chinese interests, and purportedly implicated Joe Biden. An independent review found had those reports been carried routinely in the media, enough voters would have turned away from Joe Biden to cost him the victory.
Also, there were dozens of state election laws that were overturned or simply ignored by state officials making “accommodations” for voting during COVID-19. The full impact of those decision, which were unconstitutional, isn’t known.
But when Jan. 6 rolls around again in less than two weeks, there will be a nationwide campaign to hold candlelight vigils in honor of those hundreds of patriotic Americans targeted for their political beliefs.
Those were the hundreds or thousands of Americans using their constitutionally protected freedom of speech to oppose what they saw as an agenda to take America down through election manipulation.
Look Ahead America is working on the anniversary events, and said it wants to honor those exercising their First Amendment rights at the Capitol, and to commemorate the “murder” of Ashli Babbitt and apparent murder of Rosanne Boyland “at the hands of Capitol and D.C. police.”
Babbitt was shot and killed by an officer as she was inside the Capitol. Boyland purportedly died of natural causes, but that has recently come under challenge.
Several others died from natural cases that day, and in the following weeks and months, several Washington police officers committed suicide.
LAA chief Matt Braynard explained, “January 6th is the one-year anniversary of the beginning of our government’s immoral and unconstitutional political persecution of hundreds of our brothers and sisters who exercised their First Amendment rights to seek redress of grievances on January 6th.
This is also the anniversary of the day that our sister Ashli Babbitt, an unarmed veteran, was murdered by a Capitol police officer, and the apparent murder of Rosanne Boyland by D.C. police.”
He continued, “Around the country and even around the world, we invite our supporters to host these vigils to raise awareness of our government’s betrayal of these citizens and our fundamental values to perpetuate the phony ‘insurrection’ narrative. We encourage everyone to join us for this peaceful and somber demonstration of our patriotic resolve that these victims will not be forgotten and the crimes of our political leaders will not be forgiven.”
Democrats and other leftists have insisted ever since those events that it was an “insurrection” attempting to overthrow the U.S. government, a “coup,” even though people cited for various offenses like trespassing have not subsequently been charged with insurrection.
Officials confirmed the Washington event will run from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the jail facilities in Washington.
The LAA agenda is to register, educate, and enfranchise those “disaffected citizens” who are from rural and blue-collar districts who have been dismissed by the Washington elite.
