House Speaker Nancy Pelosi spent an excessive amount of time throughout 2021 on her crusade to convince the American public that the events that erupted on Jan. 6 at the Capitol building in Washington, D.C., was an insurrection.
In the months that followed, Pelosi formed a Jan. 6 commission to investigate the incident. The investigation led to the arrest of more than 600 American protesters, many of whom have since reported being held in solitary confinement while they awaited trial.
Now fast forward to Oct. 14. It was a Thursday and the fourth day of protests as a part of People vs. Fossil Fuels action in the nation's capital. Demonstrators demanded that President Joe Biden stop approving fossil fuel projects and declare a national climate emergency.
According to reports, "Climate activists with the group rallied outside the U.S. Chamber of Commerce on Thursday, with some climbing onto a ledge to release smoke flares. Others used retrofitted fire extinguishers to spray fake oil on the building."
In this clip, Chad Prather, host of "The Chad Prather Show," was fired up over the hypocrisy that was on full display as Pelosi, the media, and the rest of the Democratic Party seemed unaffected by the following events:
The Washington Post reported:
"Police and climate activists clashed Thursday during protests at the Interior Department, with security personnel sustaining "multiple injuries" and one officer being taken to a hospital, agency spokeswoman Melissa Schwartz said.
Climate demonstrators were attempting to occupy the Interior Department, with dozens entering the Stewart Lee Udall Main Interior Building on C Street NW. Those who remained outside clashed with police as they tried to keep the one unlocked door open. At times, protesters attempted to push past the police line.
The protesters were here for People vs. Fossil Fuels, five days of demonstrations by a coalition of groups known as Build Back Fossil Free that has included Indigenous leaders from across the country. The coalition's name is a nod to President Biden's "Build Back Better" agenda.
People vs. Fossil Fuels said in a statement that 55 people were arrested during the protest, including Indigenous leaders, and said police "acted aggressively" by using Tasers on at least two people and batons to hit others. A spokesperson for the Federal Protective Service, which Schwartz said responded to the protest to "mitigate the situation," did not immediately respond to a request for comment on police tactics and arrests.
Protesters said they wanted to speak with Interior Secretary Deb Haaland, the first Native American to hold the position. Haaland was traveling outside Washington at the time, Schwartz said in a statement.
"Interior Department leadership believes strongly in respecting and upholding the right to free speech and peaceful protest," Schwartz said in a statement. "It is also our obligation to keep everyone safe. We will continue to do everything we can to de-escalate the situation while honoring first amendment rights."
Chad predicted that left-wing politicians and the mainstream media would continue their silence on the issue despite the similarities to the Jan, 6 "insurrection".
"We won't hear about an Oct.14 commission, will we? These people will not be locked away in solitary confinement, will they?" Chad asked rhetorically. "Hypocrites!"
