If you watched the Congressional Hearing on the January 6th riots this week you may have thought, "this feels like political theater."
You'd be right.
One of the police officers who testified at the hearing just so happens to be an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump.
Amazingly this guy has already gone on the record and defended another group of rioters: the Black Lives Matter activists who destroyed Kenosha, Wisconsin last year.
The Capitol Police Officer who gave emotional testimony during which he claimed he was more frightened during the January 6 riot than during his deployment in Iraq has a history of anti-Trump statements and tacitly supported the BLM riots in Kenosha.
Harry Dunn made headlines yesterday after giving teary-eyed testimony during which he claimed that he was called the n-word by Trump supporters while on patrol on that infamous day.
Dunn also asserted that he was more frightened of Trump supporters than any insurgents, terrorists or IED’s he may have risked encountering while stationed in Iraq.
However, it’s now come to light that Dunn tacitly praised the Black Lives Matter riots in Kenosha that caused $2 million in property damage and destroyed a community.
“Why is murder an appropriate response to property damage but property damage isn’t an appropriate response to murder?” Dunn responded to a Tucker Carlson tweet last August.
The officer also referred to President Trump as “the racist in chief” while praising Ilhan Omar.
“Just a couple of weeks before he gave his testimony, Dunn also cheered on known Russia hoaxer Democrat Rep. Eric Swalwell for telling the “truth” about the Capitol riot and condemned Fox News for not having him on as a guest,” writes Jordan Davidson.
All of this underscores the fact that Dunn’s testimony was completely biased and based on his own extreme prejudice, while his crocodile tears were likely nothing more than a pantomime performance for the cameras.
