This year, the January 6th was celebrated with all the pomp that the Democrats and their allies in the press are capable of. CNN planned an entire special about the date, titled “Live from the Capitol: January 6, a year later.” The program showcased the “heroes who protected our democracy in the face of an insurgency” and featured interviews with prominent figures such as Congressional Speaker Nancy Pelosi and January 6 Investigation Committee Chair Bennie Thompson.
President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris were also expected to celebrate the 6th of January with remarkable speeches. Pelosi organized several events in memory of the invasion.
By now you should be wondering why January 6th deserves so much attention. You don’t have to belittle what happened — the horrific image of protesters hitting police officers with metal bars and running down the halls of Congress calling for then-Vice President Mike Pence — to recognize January 6 for what it was: an ugly moment, but not fundamental, in American history.
