During an interview on CNN’s “Reliable Sources” on Sunday, Rep. Sara Jacobs (D-CA) became the latest Democrat lawmaker to jump on the “truth and reconciliation” bandwagon, telling host Brian Stelter that America needs a “truth commission” to root out “extremist ideology” so we can all have a “common narrative” about what is true and what is not.

“There’s something very broken in our democracy,” the California Democrat said, as she talked about the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, claiming “most people” didn’t realize how bad it was until they saw the sham impeachment charade — my words, of course.

But prior to Jacobs’s call for a truth commission, it was her complete lack of self-awareness as she shared with Stelter her definition of “extremist ideology“, which not only brought down the house; it was by far the funniest part of her comedy routine.

“We describe an extremist ideology as one that is unable to take in competing ideas and reflect the truth.” Wait — an extremist ideology is one that is “unable to take in competing ideas and reflect the truth.” Um?

Stelter was visibly antsy with excitement, growing more so as Jacobs rolled out her totalitarian nonsense.

Drawing from Nazi Propaganda Minister Joseph’s Goebbels’s “big lie” quote — purely coincidentally, of course, Jacobs made her case.

“We know the violence was predicated on the idea of the ‘big lie’ — the fact that this election was stolen despite the fact that Donald Trump’s own Department of Homeland Security says it was not. You need to be able to perpetuate that kind of lie in order to get the kinds of reactions that you did.

“I think we need to look at far-right media — which I know, Brian, you have been such a leader on calling out — and also the role of social media and the whole ecosystem of social media where the kinds of information and the kinds of posts that get the biggest reactions are the ones that are prioritized by their algorithms.”

You ever notice how the Left loves to reference the “far-right” but seems completely oblivious to the far-left? And Mini-Me? The protector of all that is sacred in reputable journalism? Gimme a break.

And then… [cue: scary music]… the reckoning. 

“Because we haven’t really done the reckoning with the racial injustice and white supremacy of our past that we need to do. “And so … a truth commission — a lot of people will think of South Africa — we’ve used them in countries around the world.

“And basically … it’s communities all the way up to the national level having conversations about both the gory and the glory of our history and what happened — both throughout the history of our country and leading up to and on January 6 — so that we can come to a common narrative, moving forward, of what we want our country to be.”

South-African-style “truth commissions.” How’d that turn out for White South Africans?

The irony, which is completely lost on the Left and always will be, is the “big lie” is on them.
