Sean Hannity counters the 1/6 disinformation fortress on Fox News by describing the 1/6 attack as mothers and fathers attending a Trump rally.

The political rot extends far beyond the former president of the United States. Pro-abortion activists, traditional Catholics, regular moms and dads just attending a Trump rally. Even angry parents, how dare they speak out about age-appropriate material being taught to their children or CRT? Shall we stick to reading, writing, arithmetic and computers? But when they speak out at a school board meeting, speaking out against Critical Race Theory, guess what? You could be investigated by your armed FBI.
Hannity attempted to defend Jim Jordan’s weaponization of government hearings involving the Trump-funded bogus whistleblowers when he referred to the FBI investigating the Trump rally. The only Trump rally the FBI ever investigated took place on 1/6 so Sean Hannity redefined the domestic terrorists trying to violently overthrow the government as just a few moms and dads at a rally which I think would be true can be if you ignore the entire violent attack on the Capitol with intent to harm political leaders and the murder of police officers.
The underlying motives for government arming claims are to whitewash 1/6 and make Trump’s behavior look like a plot by law enforcement. None of what Hannity said was true, but the idea of the administration targeting Trump hasn’t motivated Republican voters, so Trump and his supporters have extended it to parents at school board meetings to stir up fear and make the threat seem personal .
Hannity is already in 8pm timeslot form. No matter how many hosts get fired or how many lawsuits get settled, Fox News continues to spread disinformation.
