Capital Hill – There’s an interesting quirk in human nature which tends to make people suspect and accuse other people of what the accuser actually wants to do. We see this rampantly on the political left which is full of people who have next to no self-awareness whatsoever.
Take one recent example: Leftists keep accusing Trump supporters of insurrection in connection with the January 6, 2021 Capitol Hill protests, yet, there is no evidence at all that anyone there tried to overthrow the government.
Yet, the people who keep making the accusations of insurrection, of trying to overthrow the government, are exactly the same folks who were happy to allow riots, violence, and destruction in cities for the purpose of overthrowing the peaceful political order.
It’s pure hypocrisy on the part of leftists, just like their accusations that Trump wanted to implement a military coup after the November 2020 election. Liberals consider that kind of violent government overthrow. Trump didn’t. Jack Phillips writes,
Former President Donald Trump responded to anonymously sourced reports claiming a top U.S. general made comments he was worried about a coup attempt after the 2020 election.
Gen. Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, allegedly told his subordinates he felt the need to be “on guard” after Nov. 3, according to a book from two Washington Post reporters that cited anonymous officials. “You can’t do this without the military. You can’t do this without the CIA and the FBI. We’re the guys with the guns,” the general reportedly said.
But Trump, in a statement on Thursday, said Milley’s comments were false.
“I never threatened, or spoke about, to anyone, a coup of our Government,” Trump said in an emailed statement. “So ridiculous! Sorry to inform you, but an Election is my form of ‘coup,’ and if I was going to do a coup, one of the last people I would want to do it with is General Mark Milley.”
Contrary to what leftists desperately want to believe about Trump, he never wanted to become a dictator. Leftists, on the other hand, have done nothing but move in that direction.
