Dems Were Quick To Call Capitol Riot A ‘Coup,’ But Won’t Dare Call The Burma Coup A ‘Coup

Written with contribution from Sheriff David Clarke

If you had any doubt in your mind that Democrats do not love this country, then you must not be paying attention to the news on a daily basis. Ever since the January 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol building, the Democratic Party has been hyping the incident as some sort of “coup” attempt. Strangely, an actual coup is happening in Burma and they refuse to properly label it as a “coup.”

The Biden administration is actually struggling with an internal debate about whether or not they should refer to the military takeover in Myanmar a “coup.” The reason for the back and forth is because calling this move a “coup” would have an impact on U.S. assistance that is regularly given to the country’s government.

“The military’s seizure of power in Burma, the detention of Aung San Suu Kyi and other civilian officials, and the declaration of a national state of emergency are a direct assault on the country’s transition to democracy and the rule of law,” the president said in a statement released on Monday. “For almost a decade, the people of Burma have been steadily working to establish elections, civilian governance, and the peaceful transfer of power. That progress should be respected.”

Pardon me, but what did he say?

Biden doesn’t seem to want to call this a coup, even though it clearly is. However, the Democratic Party has no problem referring to the riots back on January 6 as a coup, even though that wasn’t what happened. It seems that Biden is ready to bring us back under Obama era foreign policy where our nation is leading from behind.

Democrats are expert wordsmiths in changing a meaning of a word or phrase that isn’t favorable to them. For instance abortion isn’t murder, it’s women’s reproductive health. Burning down cities isn’t rioting, it’s mainly peaceful protests.
