Jimmy Kimmel is known for many things, but truth telling, objectivity, and maintaining perspective are not among them. Using one of the world’s biggest platforms, in other words, hosting the Oscars, he uncorked a whale of a lie that made Leftists everywhere so very happy.
Targeting Tucker Carlson, late in the Academy Awards show last night, Kimmel lampooned the Fox News host without actually naming him. Kimmel implied that Carlson has cherry-picked film footage to reveal that the J6 protest event was largely peaceful – which, among hundreds of thousands of protestors, it largely was.
A Zinger of a Lie
As he introduced the category of the film editing, Kimmel impudently said, “Anyone who’s ever received a text message from their father knows how important editing is. Editors do amazing things. Editors can turn 44,000 hours of violent insurrection footage into a respectful sight-seeing tour of the Capitol.”
Right on cue the woke-filled audience offered long and resounding laughter and applause. If we back up for a moment, however, the absurdity of Kimmel’s quip becomes obvious: Has Kimmel watched even 1,000 of the 44,000 hours? 100 hours? 10 hours? Even 1 hour of footage that was not cherry-picked by the J6 Select Committee?
Does Kimmel have any idea that the J6 Committee engaged in highly selective film editing of their own? Does he know that committee member Bennie Thompson recently confirmed that committee members did not watch the footage and that they delegated they assignment to their various staffs?
A Favor to History
Did Kimmel not hear Tucker Carlson say many times that the film footage he was airing was simply offering a more balanced view off what occurred? And that numerous times Carlson has said that rioters or vandalizers should be dealt with accordingly?
When House Speaker Kevin McCarthy yielded the surveillance footage to Carslon, McCarthy did the nation, the world, and history a great favor. Without such an act, we would only have the J6 Committee version of what transpired. Their version, indeed their entire proceedings, was nothing but cherry-picking.
Don’t tell that to Kimmel, the Oscar audience, or Leftist everywhere, however. They “know” what the saw, and they are quite content to let their lie-filled narrative reign supreme.
The Operative Reigns
Does Kimmel know that scores of government operatives deftly blended in with the crowd and that they intentionally emulated the dress and demeanor of Trump supporters? Does he know that uniformed officials fired tear gas, not near the crowd, INTO the crowd, deliberatively, to provoke them?
Does he know that Ray Epps and other encouraged the crowd to become rowdy and force their way into the Capitol? Does he know that Epps bragged about his role to his nephew afterward? Does he know that the J6 Committee declined to grill Epps about his role. Indeed, they let him off the hook, unlike what they did with hundreds of others, namely civilians, who played lessor roles.
Does Kimmel and his approving audience care about the lawful treatment of those who have been accused? This is supposed to be the United States of America, the land of the free and the home of the brave; the nation which immigrants from around the world yearn to reach; the beacon of democracy and the shining example on Earth of a free people in a free land.
The Rights We Hold
America was founded based on a constitution and amendments that guarantee rights to the individual; a republic where laws prevail, to be dispensed impartially; where unlawful search and seizure is not permitted; and where due process matters.
Despite all of this, the J6 Committee and the Biden Administration have acted in ways unprecedented in our history. It is treating those people who inhabited the U.S. Capitol on January 6th as if they are murderous terrorists. The people that Biden is holding, in some cases for months, and now years, in solitary confinement, are being denied their fundamental rights as American citizens.
It is only fitting that justice is served before and during the legal proceedings for any of the incarcerated. The Biden Administration and it’s incalculably undemocratic, unlawful, and despicable approach to administering ‘justice’ is stifling attempts to ensure that these incarcerated individuals receive lawful and constitutional protections.
Joe Biden, the total political puppet that he is, and his handlers, know full well about the kind of treasonous behavior in which they are engaged. They feel all-powerful however, and they are not concerned. They’ve got Jimmy Kimmel, the Oscar audience, the sycophantic press, and multi-millions of gullible Democrats, liberals, and progressives on their side.
Who would have thought that Jimmy Kimmel’s best work would have been on “The Man Show”?

Jimmy has a daughter that needs to know how daddy earned a living. It would be so cool to see her doing the TRAMPoline or checking out what’s inside daddy’s pants. I suspect that they shower together like Joe and Ashley.

Kimmel’s low I.Q. is showing; he’s making an argument that by sheer definition damns itself from the start.
¹ It’s a losing argument to say that releasing limited footage is uncontextual, when limited footage is what had been released by his fellow leftists.
² He & his other lying fools only tip their hand that they don’t really believe Jan 6th was an “insurrection”, because if they did, they’d want MORE footage released – not less. (It’s a good rule-of-thumb that the side that lies is the side that suppresses knowledge.)
I would like to suggest a different headline for the column. How about, instead of “Jimmy Kimmel: A J6 ‘Useful Idiot’” changing it to “Jimmy Kimmel: Idiot’. Works for me.
I was disgusted by that joke, but then thought, “An arguably good thing is that enough people have seen that ‘sight-seeing-tour’ clip to get the joke.” (Maybe Naomi Wolf types.)
Useless Idiot would be more appropriate , a REAL swamp feeder. Who watches those clowns reward themselves for there agenda based triad of propaganda lies and deceit and there Pornographic display and exploitations of women.. Bottom feeders, incomplete over compensated – LEMMING’s. Any of them that show anything resembling a backbone or moral turpitude and that include Christian values will soon fade into oblivion. They are ruled By satirical agendas , Clowns . Illusionist ! ( And they live in an environment of there own Kind a special Elitist social habitat oblivious of outsider world) Where the drug dealer and plastic surgeon are there mentors.
David Ray says
Trump was condemned for dispersing peaceful protesters from Lafayette Square for a photo-op in St John’s historic church (which had been burned by “peaceful protesters”).
Only problem is that isn’t what happened. First clue is that they had previously burned & rioted. The leftist scumbags came back for more & got what they earned.
However there was a large crowd of very peaceful protesters that actually were attacked unprovoked . . . on Jan 6th.
Why was is okay to assault that festive, compliant group of patriots?
¹ They were Trump supports, and ² the whole thing was a set-up planned by Nancy Pelosi. The scheming bitch got her photo-op & destroyed the lives of several good people as a bonus.
Now film footage is showing what smarter people knew all along; that there actually WAS a genuinely peaceful group attacked to stage a photo-op . . . it just wasn’t on June. 1st, 2020.

Hollywood has been editing viewers from its movies and Oscar ceremonies for decades. I never would have known Kimmel burped this up if I hadn’t read it here.
