Were the events of January sixth an insurrection? It depends on who you ask.
If you were to ask Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, he would say it was a “violent terrorist attack”. In fact, he did say that.
This piece is not about Ted Cruz. We all know what he is doing. He is busy trying to kiss the butts of the establishment in hopes of grabbing the 2024 Republican nomination.
If you were to ask any liberal on the street, they would tell you it was the worst thing to ever happen. Vice President Kamala Harris said recently that what happened at the capital was worse than Pearl Harbor.
Yes, she went there.
Since everyone is giving their opinion on what an insurrection is, I am going to go ahead and throw in my two cents. The year long Black Lives Matter riots of 2020 are an insurrection. They looted and burned local businesses. They vandalized and burnt down government buildings. More people were killed during these riots than what they call “insurrection day”.
It gets better believe me. They illegally occupied parts of a city for a good part of a year. They established their own police force, though they called them something else. They fortified their little “city” with barbwire and whatever else they could fortify it with. They ruled their city with such an iron fist, they would make Communist China proud
That was an insurrection.
That was treason.
The mainstream news media wants you to believe that the events that happened last January was worse than Pearl Harbor, as Kamala Harris once again said.
January 6th was not an insurrection. It was not a violent terrorist attack, It was for darn sure not worse than Pearl Harbor.
It was a protest. Nothing more than that. It was a tragedy that could have been avoided if the Government did their job correctly. That is for another time.
