We’ll keep this short since we’ve been over it so many times. Initial reports claimed that Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick was bludgeoned to death with a fire extinguisher on January 6. That claim even made it into the Democrats’ second article of impeachment against President Donald Trump. The New York Times corrected the story eventually. Sicknick died on January 7 from natural causes according to the medical examiner. He was said to have called his brother the night of the sixth and told him he was all right.

So it’s pretty infuriating when people — including President Joe Biden — talk about the police officers who lost their lives on January 6. Rep. Mondaire Jones didn’t want to get mired in “minutia” when he was corrected after claiming Sicknick was bludgeoned to death.

It infuriates us because they only care enough about Sicknick to exploit his death — face it, the Democrats needed someone to die that day to justify everything they would put the country through afterward. But they didn’t get their casualty, so they have to make one up.
