President Trump has released a statement in the wake of a recent FBI bulletin regarding alleged “armed protests” that are apparently being planned in all 50 state capitols.
The statement was released via Whitehouse.gov Wednesday afternoon:
“In light of reports of more demonstrations, I urge that there must be NO violence, NO lawbreaking and NO vandalism of any kind. That is not what I stand for, and it is not what America stands for. I call on ALL Americans to help ease tensions and calm tempers. Thank You.”
In the CNN piece, it is claimed that:
“On 8 January, the FBI received information on an identified group calling for others to join them in ‘storming’ state, local and federal government courthouses and administrative buildings in the event POTUS is removed as President prior to Inauguration Day. This identified group is also planning to ‘storm’ government offices including in the District of Columbia and in every state, regardless of whether the states certified electoral votes for Biden or Trump, on 20 January,” the bulletin adds.
The FBI is also tracking reports of “various threats to harm President-Elect Biden ahead of the presidential inauguration,” the bulletin states. “Additional reports indicate threats against VP-Elect Harris and Speaker Pelosi.”
As an independent, alternative media company with its finger on the pulse of the MAGA movement, we have a few qualms with these claims.
Firstly, if these “protests” were organic and not prep work for a future photo op to build upon the narrative that began on the 6th, then we certainly would have heard about it by now. Not a single known patriot, independent journalist, pundit, youtube personality, or “digital soldier” has mentioned this in any other light besides being blatant psychological manipulation and narrative control. Again, if these protests were actually being orchestrated by patriots, we would have heard about them by now.
Secondly, the MAGA crowd, general conservatives, and the moderates who get pigeonholed as Trump supporters for not towing the establishment line, by and large, tend to respect and want to uphold the rule of law, not desecrate it.
We make no claims as to what is absolute truth regarding this situation, only what it looks like from our subjective vantage. If anyone who reads this article is planning on attending an “Armed Protest” in the coming days we strongly suggest that you reconsider.
