“What is truth?”sneered Pontius Pilate, into the face of the man Jesus, who famously said we should know the truth if we want to be free. (see John 18:38)
J6 (January 6, 2020) is muddied in lies. FIVE persistent lies are being repeated “bigly” by Donald J Trump and his followers. ¿Do you love truth? — Those who love truth will want to be clear about their facts before repeating these lies, no?
CNN has done a fine job of debunking these five persistent lies, here. I’ve put them into a table for you so they can be readily, quickly, compared.
BIG LIES : FACTS :
|Rioters unarmed||75+ dangerous/deadly weapons-charges, including several handguns|
|“Merely protesting” : 1st Amend’t||140 cops assaulted by rioters|
|“Invited in” by police||Hours-long hand-to-hand combat|
|“Political prisoners”||Dangerous, and/or flight-risk|
|“False flag”||DJT: “fight like hell”|
Of course, the biggest lie is that the election was stolen. No evidence has sustained judicial scrutiny, not even in front of judges appointed by Mr Trump !
See these 24 photos at CNN. Then ask yourself if any of the lies in column-1 above have the ring of truth. Or these photos from NPR.
Don’t repeat lies ! All that is necessary for evil to succeed is for a good person to do nothing.
