IF (stress the word if) any insurrection was attempted, it was microscopic in size, not well planned and failed miserably. A handful of riotous demonstrators may have had some violent intentions, but if so, why didn't they just start lighting the curtains, flags, paperwork, and what have you on fire and burn the capitol to the ground? A flick of the Bic would have cause far more serious damage along with a real casualty count on both sides. IMO it was just a spontaneous event with a few provocatuers inciting the crowd to violence that has been blown way out of proportion.
Your analysis is flawed. For example, an inept plan to commit murder is still attempted murder therefore insurrection is insurrection, regardless of how ludicrous the stratagem.

the investigations aren't over yet. it's standard procedure to levy charges that are obvious, with the option of upping any charges if the evidence presents itself. some initial charges were for the obvious - unlawful entry/trespassing. you think that was it? that was all anybody was gonna get charged with? lol....

those that are being investigated for being involved in a coordinated, planned attack against the capital to gain access & the literal hunting down of congress critters, will most likely be charged further - - - perhaps with insurrection against the gov't of the USA.
Bullshit. No one was hunted down. No one will be charged with insurrection.

You have to have some actual evidence of insurrection, moron. The Democrat Reich has none.

A bunch of leftwing loons keep claiming the riot on 6 January was an insurrection.

Be specific those that claim it is an insurrection and cite anyone CHARGED with treason or insurrection. A bunch of people have been arrested and charged in the riot, name those charged with insurrection.
Call it what you want, those hillbillies did something illegal against our Capitol, and tried to get at politicians. Any more un-American than that and you'd have to change your name to Ho Chi Min.
Here's your insurrection:

They were trying to overthrow a US election an stop the Electoral College certification.. They also threatened the lives of Pence and Pelosi.

Do you think that is serious, or not?
They were doing no such thing. You turds have claim that any objection to the results is "insurrection." You're a bunch of brain damaged NAZI minions.

See post #8. Rioters themselves admit it.

You just called them "rioters." Even you know it wasn't an insurrection.

Yes it was an insurrection and many people are charged. All a bunch of traitors, and Cruz and Hawley are also.
It was people protesting our corrupt government.

Today's right wing talking point. Deny there was a insurrection. I expect a flood of this half assed threads today.

Exactly. They're trying to re-write history. God forbid if their tribe ever does anything bad! They'd still be frothing at the mouth if BLM/Antifa had done the same thing. FFS, they're so gullible, some believe it actually was BLM/Antifa.

The white grievance in the Trump cult is strong.

From your article

Instead of an attempt to overturn the election by radicalized Donald Trump supporters, it was a choreographed attack staged by antifa provocateurs. Rather than an armed insurrection, it was a good-natured protest spoiled by a few troublemakers.​
And instead of a deadly event that put the lives of hundreds of lawmakers, police officers and others at risk, the riot was no big deal at all.​
A legion of conservative activists, media personalities and elected officials are seeking to rewrite the story of what happened at the Capitol on Jan. 6, hoping to undermine the clear picture of the attack that has emerged from video and photo evidence, law enforcement officials, journalistic accounts and the testimonials of the rioters themselves: that a pro-Trump mob, mobilized by the former president’s false claims of a stolen election, stormed the seat of American government to keep Trump in power through violent means.​
This is why no one takes WaPo seriously.

On the one hand, they tell some truths. . . OTH? They tell wildly ridiculous lies to support the narrative of the Deep State.

NO. . . . it was not a "good-natured protest." Of that, most sane folks can agree. Something very foul went on. . .

OTH,. . . . WaPo is clearly lying, and pushing a false paradigm. . .

"armed insurrection?!"

Seriously? Who is rewriting history now? There wasn't anybody that was armed there. No one had any guns. If they had been serious, we would be under authoritarian rule right now, with Trump at the helm. This was NOT organized, it was not seriously planned to overthrow the power substructure of the ruling class, it is a false narrative. Sane thinking folks can see right through such a ridiculous narrative. Repeating, "armed insurrection," over and over again, doesn't make it true.



I'm not seeing a lot of violent gun toting militias here. . .


Nope. . . if anything, the corporate media is the one trying to spin here. . .

Insurrection, lol. There wasn't one....or that was the most sorry one I've ever seen in the history of mankind.
Agree with the second part. It fits the technical definition by was a really sorry excuse for one.
What's the "technical definition" you believe fits?
An attempt to change the control of government by illegal and violent means.
So the Dim election swindle was an insurrection?

By presenting the most innocuous pictures you can find and pretending them to be the norm or the issue, you are far more dishonest than WAPO calling it an armed insurrection.

There were many kinds of weapons used that day to smash through Capitol doors and windows and injure LE including the MOB itself.

Now post a pic of a puppy and claim the insurrection wasn't that because of a puppy.

But they admit it themselves. It's not me saying it; it was the participants.
