Here is Maddow making our argument for us. Take a look below:

“Just a key point, that yes, there was a pro-Trump rally at which the president spoke. And we can absolutely tak about all the things the president said there.
But the idea that that rally is the thing that got out of hand and that somehow resulted in the breaching of the capitol –
That rally was very far from the capitol and the people who, as you say, did the initial breach, that allowed everybody else to come in, they never even went to that rally.”
I had to watch this a few times to make sure I heard her correctly. Did she really just admit to what we’ve been saying for almost eighteen months? Is she saying that the innocent Trump rally, which was attended by hundreds of thousands of patriots, wasn’t the cause or start of the alleged sedition? Haven’t we been saying that the whole time, only to be called fascists and kicked off social media?
Obnoxious Twitter detractors were trying to make the point that this video comes in the context of her discussing the Proud Boys, Oath Keepers, or some other boogie man that no one had ever heard of – or in my case still never heard of – outside the context of J6. Are we sure these groups aren’t entirely all Feds? But no matter – if Trump’s rally, and by extension Trump himself, was not the catalyzing moment for the breach, that seals the deal.
Maddow is essentially admitting that a few bad eggs, who I am convinced had Fed support, sullied an event for hundreds of thousands of people who had never previously engaged in any sort of calamitous behavior, let alone stormed the United States Capitol.
It would have been amazing if Maddow continued her line of thinking a bit more. She could have name-dropped Ray Epps or asked why Stewart Rhodes remains free while every other Oath Keeper is seemingly locked up for life. She could have referenced a New York Times article that cited at least twenty FBI agents being on the Capitol premises that day, or even wondered why the Whitmer kidnapping case was so eerily familiar to the events of J6.
Is she not at all curious about the obvious lack of police support? Did Pelosi decline the National Guard?
She didn’t, although she could have, play the soundbite of Donald Trump announcing that patriots should peacefully make their voices heard by marching over to the Capitol.
