Red pill #1: The “Armed Insurrection” was entirely unarmed

When is an Armed Insurrection an Unarmed Protest?

Armed with arms and legs?

Your mission, should you choose to accept it: Red-pill the West. No guns were found on any of the protesters who went into the US Capitol on January 6th. The most important part of this message is not about guns, or the lack of. It’s about The Media. People need to know they are being sold elite propaganda every night on TV — fake news that serves the Upper Class Swamp.

The net worth of the political couple went from $3m in 2004 to something between $9 and $36m by 2018.
