One Thing that Putin Did Get Right: After January 6, "Over 400 Americans had criminal charges places against them, face prison sentences up to maybe even 25 years; they're being called domestic terrorists"

Even Vladimir Putin, of all people, sees what is going on in America.

When asked in June 2021 (the year before the Kremlin invaded Ukraine), "If all of your political opponents are dead, in prison, poisoned, doesn't that send a message that you do not want a fair political fight?", he responded as follows below.

While we do not agree with 's (rosy?) portrait of Putin (especially in the aftermath of the Ukraine war), nobody can deny that Russia's president did provide a reply that unexpectedly brought January 6 into the debate:

"As for who is killing whom or throwing whom in jail, people came to the US Congress for political demands. 400 people. Over 400 people had criminal charges places against them, face prison sentences up to maybe even 25 years. They're being called domestic terrorists. They're being accused of a number of their crimes. Some of them were arrested right away after the events and 30 of them are still under arrest. It's unclear on what grounds. And as for the [unclear] authorities have informed us about it. Some people died and one of the people that died was simply shot on the spot by the police although they weren't threatening the police with any weapons. In many counties, the same thing happens that happens in our country. I'd like to stress once more that we sympathize with what happened in the United States but we have no desire to let the same thing to happen in our country."

The whole affair recently led the Babylon Bee go for the tongue-in-cheek headlines, Putin Impressed With American System Of Prosecuting Political Opponents and Democrats Vow To Arrest As Many Political Opponents As It Takes To Defeat Fascism.

Civil Deadline quotes Fox News: 

During the segment, [Tucker] Carlson explained, “While stipulating that all riots are bad because precision matters, facts matter. The truth matters. Here’s the truth: More cops were injured by Kamala Harris’s favorite mob, BLM, at the White House than were injured by Trump voters at the Capitol on January 6. A lot more!”

But the highest-rated Primetime news anchor went on to explain why January 6 is part of a much bigger plan. Carlson said, “So, again, to be clear, both events are bad. But here’s the key: we only remember one of them. Why? The people in charge of history are liars, liars. And lying is bad. And on a national scale, it’s deadly.”

“It’s corrosive of everything that is good in the country, including trust and your grasp on reality itself. And that’s where they try to make you lie. Men can become women. Climate change is an existential threat, or whatever the lie is they’re making you tell, they don’t believe it. They know you don’t believe it. But by forcing you to repeat it, they degrade and control you. They make you less of a person.”

The lies and scams perpetrated by the radical left are destroying our nation. But their biggest lie may well be what actually happened on January 6. However, it could prove to be their undoing. Video doesn’t lie. The footage from the Capitol's surveillance cameras on January 6 tells a very different story than what the left claims happened.

Why aren't there scads of lawyers demanding Writs of Habeas Corpus over this?
