PEARSON SHARP (CORRESPONDENT): In February of 1933, a fire broke out in a government building in Berlin, the capital of Germany, the Reichstag building, the center of the German parliament was set on fire. It represented an attack on the German government itself. Adolf Hitler wasted no time and use the fire is an excuse to target anyone who opposed him. Hitler blamed his political enemies for the fire. He had already ordered a raid on their headquarters using the gestapo, the secret police force loyal only to him. The Gestapo lied and claimed they found evidence of plots against the Nazis. There were no such plots, but they didn't stop Hitler from using the opportunity to seize more power.
So what can we learn from this? Why share this history lesson? Because we know for a fact that history repeats itself far too often. Flash forward some 87 years to the afternoon of January 6, 2021. The Capitol building in Washington, D. C. is the center of a massive protest as American citizens condemn the government's widespread corruption, abuse and theft of an election. As the protest escalates, the Capitol building itself is broken into and protesters wander the halls, taking pictures and cheering themselves on. But this wasn't a violent protest. There were no attacks against the police and the only person killed that day was an innocent woman who was gunned down in cold blood by a Capitol police officer who has still never been charged for her death. That didn't matter. It was exactly the kind of event the Democrats wanted to push their agenda.
After January, 6th Biden and his party pushed through new laws tightening security around the Capitol, boosting police forces, and giving authorities more power to carry out investigations and arrests against anyone suspected of involvement in the protests. Meanwhile, after the fire in Germany, Hitler and his party pushed through new laws tightening security around the Reichstag, boosting police forces, and giving authorities more power to carry out investigations and arrests against anyone suspected of involvement in the fire. The Nazis used the event to push propaganda, spreading fear and hatred of anyone who might have been involved or who didn't support the Nazi party. Thousands were arrested and persecuted and many were brought in without due process and interrogated by Hitler's secret police, and anyone who stood up to the Nazis was branded a criminal, an enemy of the state and thrown in prison.

Like the Nazis, the radical left pushed propaganda, spreading fear and hatred of anyone who might have been involved or who didn't support the Nazi- I mean, the Democrat party. Thousands were persecuted and many were arrested without due process and interrogated by Biden's secret police, and anyone who stood up to the Democrats was branded a criminal and enemy of the state.
If it's not clear, January 6 is the new Reichstag fire for the Democrats, their rallying cry to seize power and attack their political enemies, an agenda they have pursued with ruthless efficiency. But here's the twist. Historians believe it was Hitler's own agents who orchestrated the Reichstag fire, a conspiracy designed to provoke the German people into thinking Hitler's political enemies were a threat to the safety of Germany, and by a strange coincidence, there is growing evidence that it was the Democrats themselves who may have orchestrated and even facilitated the so-called attack on the capital on January 6.
We know the Democrats, including Nancy Pelosi, and even the mayor of D.C. stopped President Trump from sending reinforcements to protect the Capitol. We know from court documents that at least two dozen agents, maybe even more from the FBI and ATF were planted in the crowd on January 6th. And we have the fact that the FBI hasn't denied their involvement in the protests. In fact, when questioned by Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), senior FBI officials refused to deny the fact that FBI agents may have committed crimes or even incited the violence that day. The fact is, we know the FBI has been involved in similar operations in the past, like the alleged plot to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer. On top of that we have footage like this showing the police in the Capitol, apparently throwing open the doors and welcoming the protesters inside. Does that seem like the kind of thing the police would do if they were trying to stop protesters from getting into the Capitol?
But it gets worse following Hitler's takeover, the Gestapo, his secret police began spying on private German citizens. His agents invaded the homes and fabricated evidence to eliminate any threats to Biden- I mean Hitler's power. Sound familiar.?The Democrats weaponized the FBI and are using their agency to target their political enemies like President Trump, conducting illegal raids and seizing or possibly even manufacturing whatever evidence they need to use against him. But Trump isn't alone. Even his allies like Mike Lindell or Steve Bannon or Roger Stone are being targeted and have all been victims of raids by the Gestapo- I mean, FBI. So far, the FBI has carried out assaults on the homes of 35 of President Trump's allies. And senior Republican leaders warn the agency has warrants ready to go for at least 50 more raids on the president's supporters. The Reichstag fire- January 6th protests-- these are exactly the kind of staged event that all tyrants use to seize power.
But the story isn't over, and this is why it's important because what followed the Reichstag fire was the Night of the Long Knives when thousands of Hitler's political enemies were rounded up and executed. We have to wake up before the Democrats can put the next step of their plan into action and Biden's jack-booted Stormtroopers start rounding up his enemies and sending them off to camps.
