We’ve been instructed by Democrats and their media to believe the Capitol Hill riot on January 6, 2020 was the greatest assault on our democracy, as Vice President Kamala Harris put it, since the September 11, 2001 terror attacks and the sneak attack on our base at Pearl Harbor.
What Democrats and their media fail to include are previous attacks on the Capitol, not going back as far as the 1814 burning by the British army, but more recent attacks with perpetrators who armed with more than deadly flag poles. Those committing the acts of violence were liberals and their causes, either to protest the “oppressed” or wars, and they either shot elected officials or caused significant damage by explosives in the Capitol and other federal government buildings.
President Jimmy Carter commuted the sentences for all of the Puerto Rican terrorists who bombed the Capitol in 1954. Bill Ayers, a leader of the Weather Underground went on to become a “distinguished” academic/author while one of the members of May 19, pardoned by Bill Clinton on his last day in office, is now a fundraiser for Black Lives Matter.
The Biden administration is creating a new unit in the justice department to counter domestic terrorism following the deadly US Capitol attack by supporters of Donald Trump, a senior official said on Tuesday.
“We face an elevated threat from domestic violent extremists,” Matthew Olsen, assistant attorney general of the national security division, told a hearing held by the Senate judiciary committee.

Liberals can shoot senators and bomb the Capitol numerous times, but it took a one-time riot during a conservative rally for Democrats to get serious.
Unarmed knuckleheads who entered the Capitol on January 6th are either languishing in solitary confinement in a DC shithole or are still being hunted down by Biden’s FBI. Liberals who actually shot up and bombed the Capitol are celebrated and get to influence the next generation as to their way of progressive activism.
That is, if their prior activities are even brought up.
