House Speaker Nancy Pelosi provoked confusion when she announced during her weekly press briefing Thursday that she intends to launch a committee to investigate both the “root causes” of the Jan. 6th riot at the U.S. Capitol and the security flaws that had allowed the attack to occur.

“It is imperative that we establish the truth of that day, and ensure that an attack of that kind cannot happen and that we root out the causes of it all. The select committee will investigate and report on the facts and the causes of the attack and it will make report recommendations for the prevention of any future attack,” she said.

Listen:

What triggered confusion was her premature conclusion that the so-called “root causes” of the riot were “white supremacy,” “anti-Semitism” and “Islamophobia.”

She said it “was so evident” that these are the “root causes.”

Listen:

The fact that she wants to investigate something that she believes she’s already solved triggered the first round of confusion.

Look:

There was also confusion over her rush to identify the so-called “root causes.”

The only example she could cite to prove her spurious claims was that of a single Jan. 6th rioter who’d been wearing a “Camp Auschwitz” hoodie.

There was no additional evidence she could cite because the Jan. 6th rioters were comprised of both genders and multiple races.

Look:

Critics also seized specifically on her claim of “anti-Semitism.” It seemed so disingenuous because while it’s true one Jan. 6th rioter had worn an anti-Semitic sweater, it’s equally true that multiple members of her own party — members whom she’s personally blessed with committee positions — are rabid anti-Semites.

Just recently, Rep. Ilhan Omar, who boasts a seat on the powerful House Foreign Affairs Committee, compared both the United States and Israel to the Taliban and Hamas, both of which are terrorist groups.

The remark was troubling enough that Pelosi issued a statement effectively rebuking the congresswoman.

“Drawing false equivalencies between democracies like the US and Israel and groups that engage in terrorism like Hamas and the Taliban foments prejudice and undermines progress toward a future of peace and security for all,” she said in a joint statement with other top members of the Democrat Caucus.

Meanwhile, the Jan. 6th rioters were all supporters of former President Donald Trump, a man considered to have been the most pro-Israel, pro-Jewish president in American history. And so for Pelosi to accuse them of being the anti-Semitic ones didn’t make much sense.

Look:

Amid the Israeli-Palestinian conflict earlier this month, American Jews began facing harassment and attacks from pro-Palestinian supporters. Support for the Palestinians is entirely a left-wing phenomenon, as the right is supportive only of the Israelis.

The criticism of Pelosi didn’t come from just everyday Americans. A number of prominent figures on the right and in the center also took note of her comments.

Look:

Note what Newsmax host Steve Cortes wrote. He pointed out that the Jan. 6th riot wasn’t an “insurrection” and that it was motivated solely by a belief that the election had been stolen from Trump.

Critics have argued that the only real insurrection that’s occurred has been the near-nightly one that’s been occurring in Democrat cities for over a year now.
