Protesters storm the U.S. Capitol and halt a joint session of the 117th Congress on Jan. 6, 2021.

NEW YORK — Beneath a pale winter light and the glare of television cameras, it seemed hard not to see the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol riot for what it was. The violent storming of the Capitol by Donald Trump supporters bent on upending the election of Joe Biden was as clear as day: democracy under siege, livestreamed in real time.

Yet a year later, when it comes to a where-were-you moment in U.S. history, there is far from national consensus.

Yup, to Democrats and their knee pad media allies,seeking to divert attention to their failures at every level of governance, the mostly peaceful protest at the U.S. Capitol on January 6 is the equivalent of the Bataan Death March and the Trail of Tears combined.

How pitiful that they believe we are so dumb to not see through it. Chuck Schumer, MENSA Member in his own mind.
