Democrats are trying to use what happened at the Capitol in January to launch a ‘9/11 style’ investigation of what happened.
The political implication here is so easy to see. Democrats are trying to frame their political opponents as terrorists.
It’s a deeply cynical and offensive move.
In a recent monologue on his show, Tucker Carlson broke it all down as only he can.
FOX News provides a partial transcript:
Tucker Carlson: Democrats are waging a new war, against you
A mysterious letter appeared on Capitol Hill this week. It was addressed to every member of the United States Congress. The letter arrived on the official letterhead of the U.S. Capitol Police. But it wasn’t from the chief, or from any individual officer.
Instead, the letter was signed: “Proud Members of the United States Capitol Police.” So, it was anonymous. That was the first tip this wasn’t your average security bulletin. And in fact it wasn’t. It was instead a political demand. The letter instructed members of Congress to vote “yes” to establish a “January 6th insurrection commission.” Police officers anonymously demanding that the people they protect vote a certain way on a specific piece of legislation? Haven’t seen that before.
Most people assumed the Capitol Hill police department was a law enforcement agency. Members of Congress certainly believe that. They trust their lives to Capitol Hill police. That’s why Capitol Hill police officers don’t lobby congress. That would be a dangerous conflict of interest, backed by an implied threat: do what we say, or watch your back. In this case, that’s exactly what they were saying to Republicans.
“We members of the United States Capitol Police write this letter to express our profound disappointment with the recent comments from both chambers’ minority leaders [Kevin McCarthy and Mitch McConnell] expressing no need for a January 6 commission.”
“We are expected to remain neutral and do our jobs with honor and integrity,” the letter continued. “It’s unfortunate that our ‘bosses’ [Congress] are not held to the same standard that we, the USCP are.” Well, that’s a ransom note. Imagine getting it from one of your own bodyguards. It might be enough to make you rethink your position, which was, of course, the point of it.

Democrats are trying to brand their fellow Americans as terrorists for purely political reasons.
