“It Wasn’t an Insurrection,” Megyn Kelly Speaks Out Against the False Media Portrayal of the Jan. 6th Incident


America suffered through a wave of violence brought on by left-wing extremists, domestic terrorist groups, and racial supremacists last year.

Antifa and BLM destroyed businessess, murdered innocents, and illegally and violently occupied entire city blocks.

Meanwhile, democrat leaders like Nancy Pelosi, Kamala Harris, and Maxine Waters cheered on and encouraged them.

The Summer of 2020 was an absolute nightmare for America.

Worse yet was that the mainstream media ignored and excused the violence and terror.

Then something happened on January 6th, 2021.

The alleged “insurrection” at the Capitol occurred.

However, many assert that it wasn’t an insurrection at all.

Megyn Kelly recently spoke about the hypocrisy of the media for calling Jan. 6 an “insurrection,” while ignoring actual violence from left-wing extremists in 2020.

She says that the media used the actions of a few to villify an entire group of people.

The media’s uneven coverage of actual terrorism in 2020 proves that they either don’t know what the term “insurrection” means, or that they’ve been lying about it.

The New York Post has more on Megyn Kelly's assertion that the mainstream media completely misrepresented the events of Jan. 6:

Conservative pundit Megyn Kelly is calling out national news outlets for misrepresenting the Jan. 6 Capitol riot in their coverage.

“There’s no question the media represented this as so much worse than it actually was,” the cable news vet said on her podcast.

She went on to note that mainstream media commentators and journalists have extended the words and actions of some of the people at the Capitol that day to all supporters of President Donald Trump.

“We’ve all seen the video of people, like, screaming in the face of cops, being totally disparaging, and defecating on the floor of the US Capitol, and lawmakers were understandably afraid, not like [Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez saying] ‘I need therapy for the rest of my life’ afraid, but I could understand it, and I didn’t like seeing it at all,” Kelly continued.  

“So they got tarred by the actions of some losers who went a different way. And then the media did what it does, which is any bad behavior gets attributed to the entire group of Trump supporters.”

Though Kelly was critical of those few who actually commited crimes on Jan. 6th, she contends that it was unfair to lump everyone into that group, when the vast majority of the crowd was entirely peaceful.

The Hill with more:

Supporters of Trump are "supposed to be pro-cop," said Kelly, who criticized people at a "Stop the Steal" rally who marched to the Capitol and attacked Capitol Police officers.

"But that does not mean that's what the entire crowd was there for," she continued. "So they got tarred by the actions of some losers who went a different way. And then the media did what it does, which is any bad behavior gets attributed to the entire group of Trump supporters."

Kelly later argued mainstream media outlets, in covering the events of Jan. 6, were "tying the political rhetoric" of Trump repeatedly denying he lost the presidential election and peddling false claims of voter fraud to "what we saw that day."

There was a lack of what Kelly called "nuance" in the reporting that followed in the days and weeks following the attack on the Capitol.

A number of GOP lawmakers as well as Trump have downplayed the events of Jan. 6. One GOP congressman likened the images that day to a tour group visiting the Capitol.

Kelly, who recently signed a deal with SiriusXM to host a daily radio program, is often critical of the mainstream press for coverage of Trump, conservatives and politics in general.

The former Fox News anchor said during a recent interview that a subsequent stint at NBC News was not “intellectually stimulating" enough for her and drove her to leave outlet.

Of Jan. 6, Kelly said: "It wasn't an insurrection. It wasn't."

Moreso, the media's insistance on calling the incident an "insurrection" runs counter to their coverage of the violence and terrorism perpetuated by left-wing extremists in 2020.

Antifa even admitted to being insurrectionists in 2020.

The media pretends not to know what terms such as "inserrection," "uprising," or "riot" mean.
