January 6 Insurrection Celebrated at CPAC [View all]


January 6 Insurrection Celebrated at CPAC
February 24, 2024 at 6:21 am EST By Taegan Goddard

“At an influential gathering of conservatives this weekend, the January 6, 2021, insurrection at the US Capitol is being treated as a rallying cry — with speakers, vendors and attendees fanning the flames of conspiracy over the events of that day,” CNN reports.

David Axelrod: “If I were the Biden campaign, I would pay to have every American see the CPAC convention because the thing that has been thwarting Republicans in the midterms and since, has been this impression of the Republican Party as an extreme party. Yesterday, you had someone stand up at the CPAC convention as a speaker and basically talk about, ‘We almost toppled democracy on January 6. We’re going to do it now with this.’”

“And he held up a cross, basically advocating for theocracy. This is not the image that the Republican Party wants.”
