On Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, ever eager to paint those on the political Right as racist, declared that the “root causes” of the January 6 Capitol riots were white supremacy, anti-Semitism, and Islamophobia.
A reporter asked, “Is there a timeline that you want this committee to have a final report to you? Who will this committee report to, and what does that final report look like?”
“The timeline will be as long as it takes for them, the time they need to do the investigation of the causes of this,” Pelosi replied. “There are two actual paths: one is about the root causes of it: the white supremacy, the anti-Semitism, the Islamophobia, all of the rest of it that was so evident when you see a sweatshirt on one of the people saying, ‘Camp Auschwitz.’”
