What we know already is that Trump and his enablers engaged in a criminal conspiracy to try and violently overturn the 2020 Election. For the past year, a bipartisan House Committee has been investigating the January 6th attack and the continuing threats from this network.
Tonight at 8pm Eastern / 5pm pacific, we finally get to know what the Jan 6 committee uncovered. Will you join us to see what they found and help spread the word? Click here if you prefer to join us on Facebook.
A lot of people would rather tune out these hearings, I get it. There are a lot of other things going on in the world – from climate-fueled superstorms, to exciting new renewable energy announcements, to an explosion at a newly expanded (not so safe after all) LNG facility in Texas. Plus, people are exhausted from mass shootings, the pandemic, and an unrelenting wave of bad news.
But that’s exactly what the fossil fueled fascists are hoping for. That’s how they win this round. If people are too distracted to remember the violent attempted coup; or worse yet if they shrug their shoulders and say “yeah, so what” then Trump and his enablers in the fossil fuel industry will be emboldened to do it again. After all – if there’s no consequences, why NOT try and overthrow a free and fair election?
You don’t have to take my word for it, Fox News has already announced their plans to counter-program the hearing tonight with lies and conspiracy theories (that’s another example of why we are still fighting to get them kicked off basic cable). Our job as citizens and climate activists is to show up, hear the evidence at these public hearings and make sure the news breaks through to reach the American public! It’s the only way to hold Trump & all fossil fueled fascists accountable.
