Last week, we crossed that one-year anniversary mark of the events that transpired at the Capitol on January 6, 2021.
Was it a protest? Was it a riot? Was it something else? My answer to those questions is simply, yes.
I think it was a combination of all of those things, however, I don’t think that all people participated in all of them. Some were protesters, some were rioters, and some were there for other reasons.
The purpose of the protesters out there in Washington, D.C. that day was to protest the election results because we had seen so many irregularities and so much evidence of fraud and people were concerned that the election was stolen.
You know as well as I do that when we can no longer have a fair election, our country is lost entirely.
Most people who were there were just protesting. Then there were some people who were there rioting and causing damage. This is a fact. Then there were people who were in the middle and went inside the Capitol, but didn’t do any damage to anything. They just looked around and maybe yelled a little.
The Democrats have lumped everyone into one category and labeled everyone who protested in Washington, D.C. as well as every single Republican in the country as Nazis, terrorists, insurrectionists, and every other derogatory term they can come up with.
So it was a little surprising when Sen. Ted Cruz called what happened on that day a “terrorist attack”, which is a Democrat talking point.
“We are approaching a solemn anniversary this week. And It is an anniversary of a violent terrorist attack on the Capitol where we saw the men and women of law enforcement demonstrate incredible courage, incredible bravery, risk their lives to defend the men and women who serve in this Capitol.”
Tucker Carlson called him out for saying such a thing and seemingly agreeing with the Democrats. Ted Cruz came on and explained what he meant by what he said and admitted that what he was a poor choice of words.

I was ONLY talking about the limited number of people who committed violent assaults on police officers.
For over a decade, I’ve referred to those who violently attack police officers as terrorists. If you assault a cop you should go to jail.

What do you think? Do you believe his explanation? I believe that what he said is a plausible explanation and I do know that he was been one who has stood up to defend President Trump and his supporters and that he did challenge the results on January 6, 2021.
