(FreedomBeacon.com)- During the Democrats’ day-long campaign event marking the anniversary of January 6, several lawmakers and President Biden himself falsely named US Capitol Police officer Billy Evans as a casualty of the 3-hour riot.
In her campaign remarks, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi took a moment to honor “our fallen heroes of that day.” Keep in mind, not one law enforcement officer was killed on January 6. But that didn’t stop Pelosi from claiming Brian Sicknick, Howard Liebengood, Billy Evans, and DC Metro officer Jeffrey Smith were the “fallen.”
Sicknick later died of natural causes and the medical examiner found no evidence that his death had anything to do with the riot.
Liebengood and Smith later committed suicide.
And Billy Evans died in April 2021 when a Nation of Islam follower plowed his vehicle into a police barrier, killing Evans.
Pelosi blaming Trump supporters for the death of Billy Evans is contemptible.
But she wasn’t the only one who did it.
During his address, President Biden named Billy Evans as one of the police killed “in the wake of January 6.” That’s stretching the definition of “in the wake of” to the point of breaking.
The problem the Democrats have in trying to sell January 6 as “a deadly riot,” is the only person “killed” during the riot was Trump supporter Ashli Babbitt. The last person Pelosi, Biden, and the rest of the Democrats are going to mention is Babbitt because they don’t view her as one of the good guys. So to sell January 6 as “deadly,” they have to pretend that law enforcement lost their lives when none of them did.
But nobody is going to fact-check Pelosi or Biden or any of them. The American corporate news media will echo the claim that January 6 was a “deadly insurrection” that claimed the lives of police officers. Even if they have to reach ahead four months to include Billy Evans.
