I’m not so sure anymore. Where as initially, first 48 hrs, there was anger, outrage and shock across the spectrum at what the did to our Capitol. Then, when you would think they’d severe themselves from that faction, the messaging started to change. The rioters became “patriots” and “political prisoners”. The police were accused of being “crisis actors”. All of a sudden, what was up became down and what was down became up.Nah. The violent portion of the 1/6 Capital gathering was obviously bad. I don’t see many Republicans supporting any protestor there that day who hurled heavy objects at police, or who struck police officers with any objects or who almost crushed some officers in between a door and it’s frame.
What exactly was it then? They were trying to stop the certification. So it wasn’t just a riot. Granted, it was a single orchestrated plot, but not sure that matters.I have no problem with identifying such individuals if possible and prosecuting them.
What I do object to is the simplistic and inaccurate attempts by Democrats and the left wing media to suggest that it was an “insurrection.” It wasn’t.
Let’s be real, both sides are busy doing that…I also object to the left wing apparatchik media vilifying ONLY the folks doing such criminal acts on the right — but then TRYING so hard to pawn off violent BLM and “Anti”fa rioters as being “mostly peaceful.” The fuck they were.
