Johnathan Turley is not a “fan” of President Trump by any stretch of the imagination. He’s an academic liberal, but one thing that sets Mr. Turley apart from the others on the left is that he’s not a stark-raving mad Stage 5 TDS victim.
He’s kept his wits about him and he’s focused on facts and law, not emotion and frothing at the mouth like so many of our creepy “friends” on the left.
Turley has taken to Twitter to make some sense of this mess and he really nailed it.
Here’s what he said:
“…The damage caused by the rioting was enormous, but it will pale in comparison to the damage from the new precedent of a “snap impeachment” for speech protected under the 1st Amendment. It would do to the Constitution what the rioters did to the Capitol: Leave it in tatters.
While I was highly critical of the President’s remarks, he never actually called for violence or a riot. Indeed, he expressly told his followers “to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.” Such marches are common in both federal and state capitols.”

The thing that people like Johnathan Turley don’t understand is that the left is just about power.
There is no need for common sense when all you’re trying to do is amass power and impose your will ad beliefs on people.
There is no amount of common sense that will convince these people that what happened at the Capitol was not an actual “insurrection.” Why would they do that? It’s the messaging that is giving them the biggest power grab of their lives.
