The details surrounding the death of US Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick stink to high heaven. We’re being lied to again by our garbage establishment. Officer Sicknick’s death, while certainly tragic, is being used as an emotional manipulation talking point as Democrats try to slither their way into impeaching Donald Trump. The only problem is that just about everything we’ve been told about Sicknick’s death has been a lie. Hold onto your hat, because this is a truly weird story.
First off, we mean absolutely no disrespect toward Officer Sicknick or his family in talking about this case. It’s always awful to lose a loved one under any circumstance. But Sicknick’s death is being used to manipulate the entire country and we’re being lied to. It doesn’t appear that he was actually murdered, yet he was given a state funeral in the US Capitol. They didn’t even do that for the sitting Member of Congress who just died from lung cancer last week. The American people deserve answers, since Sicknick’s death is being used to smear the 80 million people who cast honest ballots for Donald Trump.
Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for a few weeks, then you’re probably at least vaguely familiar with this story. It was initially reported that Officer Sicknick was killed during the Capitol protests when redneck hillbilly MAGA terrorists bashed him in the head with a fire extinguisher. We were told he died of the fire extinguisher injury the day after the protests. This had to be true, because the New York Times reported that “sources” had told them this. The rest of the entire media then ran with the story by citing the New York Times.
The Article of Impeachment against Donald Trump, which blames Trump for Sicknick’s death, states that Trump supporters “killed a Capitol police officer by striking him in the head with a fire extinguisher.” The New York Times claims Sicknick had a bloody gash in his head when he was rushed to the hospital and placed on life support.
But hold on.
Officer Sicknick’s brother says he had a text message exchange with him the evening after the riots, when Brian Sicknick was supposedly in the hospital on life support. Brian Sicknick wasn’t in the hospital. He was back at his precinct station after a long day at work when he texted his brother to tell him he was “in good shape.” He said he caught a couple of pepper spray blasts from his fellow officers throughout the chaotic day, but he was otherwise fine.
The following day, mainstream media reporters stared calling Officer Sicknick’s family out of the blue. They wanted to get a statement and know how the Sicknick family felt now that Brian had been murdered by insurrectionist Trump supporters in MAGA hats. Huh?!
Yeah, so now the story starts to get weird.
According to Sicknick’s brother, they hadn’t received any notification that Brian had died from the hospital, the police department or anywhere else – but the media was calling and asking about Brian’s death. This is especially strange because… Brian Sicknick wasn’t dead on that Thursday afternoon when the media was calling, according to US Capitol police. The police issued a statement on the evening of Thursday, January 7 that Brian Sicknick was alive and that no police officers had died as a result of injuries in the protests the day before.
After that statement came out, the family finally received a call from the hospital that Brian Sicknick was in fact hospitalized and fighting for his life. As the family was driving to the hospital, Capitol police issued a second follow-up statement that Brian Sicknick was dead.
Sicknick’s family was told that he died of a stroke. The stroke must have happened sometime between Wednesday night when Brian told his family he was fine and the next evening, but nobody knows for sure when it happened. The US Attorney has vowed to track down the MAGA murderers who were inspired by Donald Trump to murder Brian Sicknick with a fire extinguisher.
Yet there’s no video of anyone hitting Officer Sicknick with a fire extinguisher. He obviously wasn’t on life support from a head injury as he was texting his brother that night after work. A month later, the autopsy report hasn’t been released. Oh, and Officer Sicknick’s body was immediately cremated after the autopsy, and it’s unclear whether the family authorized that or whether someone just did it so no one can go back and do further analysis on his cause of death.
This whole thing stinks, and we hope that Brian Sicknick’s family gets some answers about what really happened. And the statement in the Article of Impeachment that Sicknick was killed with a fire extinguisher is a complete and total lie.
