“I contend that 138 Capitol and D.C. police officers were injured and that multiple Capitol Police officers died,” Jones responded. “You can see how one would question the sincerity of such a minute point in the midst of the gravity of everything else.” Was Sicknick bludgeoned to death, or did he die of a stroke that couldn’t conclusively be linked to the events of Jan. 6? Who cares? Why would anyone concern themselves with minute details of whether someone was murdered or died? That question is prima facie ridiculous, of course, but there’s a darned good reason, too: Sicknick has become a symbol of Just How Bad the Capitol incursion was. It seems that, to many Democrats, it’s not enough that he died of a stroke, even if they could get everyone to buy the fact that there was but-for causation. No, he needed to have died at the hands of a bloodthirsty MAGA mob that bludgeoned him with a fire extinguisher. It’s an untruth that’s been repeated by no less than President Joe Biden, responding to a comment from Russian President Vladimir Putin that he banned protests because “he did not want a repeat of the Jan. 6 riots in his country, or for a group like Black Lives Matter to form there,” according to the U.K. Daily Mail. “I think that’s a ridiculous comparison,” Biden said. “It’s one thing for, literally, criminals to break through a cordon, go into the Capitol, kill a police officer and be held unaccountable, than it is for people objecting and marching on the Capitol and saying you are not allowing me to speak freely, you are not allowing me to do A, B, C or D. And so they’re very different criteria.” When Capitol Police officer Harry Dunn appeared before the Jan. 6 committee last year, he also repeated the falsehood during his emotional testimony.
WATCH: Rep. Mondaire Jones (D-NY) says that Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick was “bludgeoned to death” on January 6 and is left looking like a fool when @RepDanBishop reminds him that was a lie and the medical examiner ruled he died of natural causes. pic.twitter.com/jluOdH7NEV— Greg Price (@greg_price11) September 1, 2022
“I’d like to take a moment of my time,” Dunn said, “to ask for a moment of silence for my fallen colleague officer Brian Sicknick, who died from injuries he sustained in the line of duty defending the Capitol of our beloved democracy.” Officer Dunn was doubtlessly more sincere in his anguish than either President Biden or Rep. Jones, but that doesn’t imbue his words with any more accuracy. Absolutely no one except for those on the lunatic fringe believe Jan. 6 was a mere trifle, just another protest in a country that saw quite a few of them over the turbulent year of COVID-19 and George Floyd. However, that’s not enough for Democrats. Not only must Brian Sicknick have been killed by a murderous horde, that horde is still out there — and they could seize power again. However, if a Democrat plans on scaring voters like that, they’d better hope there isn’t a Chip Roy or Dan Bishop nearby to set them straight. This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
