GOP Sen. Ron Johnson falsely claimed the Capitol siege was a "peaceful protest" on Fox News.
"Calling it an insurrection… it wasn't," Johnson told host Laura Ingraham, adding that it was "by and large a peaceful protest."
"To say there were thousands of armed insurrectionists breaching the capitol, attempting to overthrow the government, is simply a false narrative," he said, despite evidence to the contrary.

"Calling it an insurrection … it wasn't," the Wisconsin Republican said in an interview with Laura Ingraham. "I condemn the breach, I condemn the violence, but to say there were thousands of armed insurrectionists breaching the Capitol, attempting to overthrow the government, is simply a false narrative."

1. Do you know why they gaslight? Because it works on the people who vote for them.

I think the buffalo-horn dude's lawyer was right, the crowd was comprised of America's dim bulbs. Doesn't excuse them, of course.

4. You are spot-on except for one important point-


he is a member of the most powerful legislative body in our country.

I want to say he knows he is full of shit but these effing GQPers consistently act so batshit crazy I truly wonder sometimes.

10. Russian asset says what?

Less people died in Minneapolis during last year's unrest/riots following the murder of George Floyd then during 4-6 hours of the 1/6 insurrection. And lets not forget that some of violence and arson in Minneapolis was committed by the alt-right.
