In his “Opening Monologue” Thursday, Sean Hannity highlighted the Democrats’ lingering hypocrisy in their Congressional investigation into the January 6, 2020 Capitol Riot, while ignoring more than 500 other riots that left behind hundreds of blocks of American communities burned down or looted.
The “Hannity” host went on to point out that Democrats and the media did not have the same concern or consideration when dozens of left-wing rioters besieged Mark O. Hatfield’s federal courthouse in the ‘Oregon last year for weeks.
“The gas lighting of Democrats and the crowd and record levels of the media. We have false hysteria, crocodile tears, analogies to 9/11, Pearl Harbor and even the Holocaust with a special performance and the cast of “Hamilton.” “”
“It’s a clown show of unspectacular levels,” he said. “Where is the committee investigating all these riots with dozens of Americans dead, thousands of cops injured?” He asked, highlighting millions in property damage from Portland to Philadelphia, and noted that in one instance, current Vice President Kamala Harris helped publicize a Minnesota-based surety fund for the violent left rioters.
While the committee of Representative Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., Focuses on the Capitol Riot, no concerns from Thompson or House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Have been interpreted in response. to incidents of left-wing activists attempting to break down a United States Secret Service Barricade at the White House in 2020, where the Trump family lived, the host said.
He noted that some activists during this time went so far as to set fire to a church opposite the White House.
“The situation was so dangerous that the president and his family were forced to flee to a secure bunker, and eventually 60 Secret Service agents were injured in the attack. Eleven were taken to a local hospital. Democrats said. , the media crowd, the Jan. 6 Committee, that never happened, ”Hannity said.
“Where is the committee investigating?” He added, counting 574 incidents of riots, looting and / or arson across the country by leftists and aligned groups.
Regarding the Jan.6 incident, Hannity said Trump allowed 10-20,000 National Guardsmen to protect the Capitol, while the Capitol Police Chief also asked for help.
Hannity reported that Pelosi and District of Columbia Mayor Muriel Bowser had to approve such requests and repeatedly turned them down.
“In doing so, they left the Capitol completely vulnerable,” he said.
“Ask yourself this question, if the real purpose of the committee is to figure out what happened so that it never happens again, how can you possibly ignore the issue of the rejection of the National Guard that the president called “The only reason I can think of it is that the committee is playing partisan politics and has a predetermined outcome.
Hannity noted that Pelosi had rejected part of the list of those nominated by the Republican caucus to the committee – leading R-Calif. Leader Kevin McCarthy to remove the entire list.
Instead, Pelosi and Thompson sat down Representatives Elizabeth Cheney from Wyoming and Adam Kinzinger from Illinois.
Hannity pointed to the categorical opposition to Trump embodied by much of the committee – which includes Jamie Raskin of Maryland, Adam Schiff, Zoe Lofgren and Pete Aguilar of California, Stephanie Murphy of Florida and Elaine Luria of Virginia.
“Remember, said Trump [on that day], “Many of you will march peacefully and patriotically to the capital so that your voices can be heard”. But of course those words don’t matter to Democrats… The Democratic Party, they never let in truth and facts, we’ve got a good story. “
Hannity continued to further criticize the media, including MSNBC, where presidential historian Douglas Brinkley went unchallenged when he compared the riot to the Nazi Party’s treatment of Jews during World War II.
“We have footage of what happened on January 6th. We have evidence. Dwight Eisenhower of WWII made sure all the Holocaust camps were filmed. So we got the footage from the movie, “said Brinkley, professor of history at Rice University in Houston.
“My concern is what we call that to make sure we honor this day, this dark day of the year? We have to keep saying January 6. I think it’s like December 7, Pearl Harbor and it’s like the tragedy of 9/11, and neither should we be afraid to call the Trump insurgency, ”Brinkley said.
Hannity then played out Vice President Harris’ side-by-side comments – between her speech on Thursday condemning the riot – and public remarks encouraging politically aligned individuals during some of the hundreds of riots in 2020:
“It’s a move – I’m telling you – they’re not going to stop,” Harris told CBS host Stephen Colbert in a 2020 clip.
“They’re not going to let go, they won’t,” she told Colbert.
Hannity then outlined his personal perspective condemning all riots, regardless of the political or other attributes of those involved:
“Let me be clear also tonight, unlike Kamala Harris and most Democrats, we’ve been extraordinarily consistent. We don’t let politics determine whether a riot is good or bad,” he said. declared.

“There is no such thing. In real time on my radio show, it is from January 6, 2021 that the events unfolded -“
“I condemn anyone involved in an incident involving violence. It’s that simple. We have to protect everyone. And I don’t care if you agree with someone or disagree with someone. someone… ”, Hannity said on his eponymous radio show. one year ago.
