Greenwald Drops Truth-Bomb on Milwaukee "Politifart"

The propaganda-site "Politifact" (better known as Politifart) took a pounding from Glenn Greenwald, a notoriously Lefty journalist.  Note well:  he's an actual journalist, not just a whining, lying Lefty.  If you want more info, just check here, where we fisked their crapola.

Just today, PolitiFact purported to “fact-check” a statement from Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) made on Monday. Sen. Johnson told a local radio station:

 "The fact of the matter is this didn’t seem like an armed insurrection to me. I mean armed, when you hear armed, don’t you think of firearms? Here’s the questions I would have liked to ask. How many firearms were confiscated? How many shots were fired? I’m only aware of one, and I’ll defend that law enforcement officer for taking that shot.

The fact-checking site assigned the Senator its “Pants on Fire” designation for that statement, calling it “ridiculous revisionist history.” But the “fact-checkers” cannot refute a single claim he made. At least from what is known publicly, there is no evidence of a single protester wielding let alone using a firearm inside the Capitol on that day. As indicated, the only person to have been shot was a pro-Trump protester killed by a Capitol police officer, and the only person said to have been killed by the protesters, Officer Sicknick, died under circumstances that are still completely unclear.

That protesters were found before and after the riot with weapons does not mean they intended to use them as part of the protest. For better or worse, the U.S. is a country where firearm possession is common and legal. And what we know for certain is that there is no evidence of anyone brandishing a gun in that building. That fact makes a pretty large dent in the attempt to characterize this as an “armed insurrection” rather than a riot.

Indeed, the most dramatic claims spread by the media to raise fear levels as high as possible and depict this as a violent insurrection have turned out to be unfounded or were affirmatively disproven.

Greenwald's arguments are dead-on.  RoJo's only serious error was his defense of the 2nd-degree murder of the protester. 

The reason for the J-S' distortions and un-truths?

To serve Nancy Pelosi's, Schumer's, and Biden's* purpose, which is justifying a National Emergency order under which, by the way, habeas corpus can and likely will be suspended.

Don't give up your guns.
