If you were the president and wanted to launch an “insurrection” and attempt to take over the US government by force, what would you do?
There are any number of answers, from calling on the military to take direct action to staging “false flag” attacks that might precipitate your getting to use military and police units to seize strategic objectives and cement power before people realize what’s going on.
What you probably wouldn’t do, however, is tell people to peacefully protest and then, when things got a bit sketchy, release a video telling people to go home and stop whatever it is that they were doing in support of that “insurrection”.
Commenting on that when talking with Sean Hannity, Levin poked major holes in the Democrat narrative about what happened on January 6th.
He began by highlighting the ridiculousness of Democrat claims that Trump launched an “insurrection” by pointing out that they haven’t found any evidence showing that Trump actually tried to launch an attack, saying:

“You know, Donald Trump apparently waited 187 minutes, Sean, before he issued his video. That would be 11,220 seconds. Why did they keep saying 187 minutes, like anybody cares?
“Let me tell you something. Can they show us one damn sentence in the hundreds of thousands of documents that they have collected, the thousand witnesses they’ve had, the text messages, the emails, the documents, anything, anywhere, that links Donald Trump to directing or ordering an attack on the Capitol Building? Where is it? We are at hearing number eight, where is it? You’d think they’d lead with it. You’d think with all the talk about criminality, they would show us. There’s nothing! Absolutely zero evidence that Donald Trump was involved in an effort to violently overthrow our elections or our government. Literally nothing!“
Continuing, Levin then ripped the Pelosi-dominated board as “Stalinist”, saying:
And the whole path has been cleared for these people because it’s a Pelosi Stalinist investigation without any barriers whatsoever.
It was then that Levin got to his main point, which is that if Trump really wanted to launch an “insurrection”, as Pelosi and the like claim, why would he release a video telling people to stand down and go home? If he really wanted to do an insurrection, he would have done the exact opposite.
Making that point, Levin said:
Now, they talk about 187 minutes before he released the video. If you’re leading an insurrection, do you release a video while an insurrection, quote/unquote, is going on and say, ‘Please stand down,’ or do you release a video that says something a little differently if you’re leading an insurrection like, ‘I’m calling on all my armed supporters to go to the Capitol. I’m calling on the United States military, I’m ordering them to arrest the vice president, to arrest members of Congress, to encircle the building. This is an insurrection! We are taking over the government!’ None of that happened, and yet that’s an insurrection.”
