Yes, they broke in. Donít be an idiot. They smashed multiple windows and doors in order to get into the building. You canít just walk into the building.

Some did and most of us in this forum have acknowledged that those that did, should be prosecuted for that crime. However, that alone does not make this act an insurrection.

After Jan 6, you are correct. However, at the time, you could. Remember, it is the People's House and therefore open to the people.

You are correct. A few years ago I walked right in. They asked for my ID and passed me through a metal detector.


Sat in the gallery and watched the sausage being made. Actually quite boring. It seems the real negotiations happen outside the hollowed walls of Congress.

None of that shows an act of terrorism or insurrection.

You are listening to idiots like AOC too much, think for yourself, will ya?

What really happened on Jan. 6?

Undoubtedly, the pro-Trump crowd at the Capitol engaged in a politically motivated riot. Beyond that, however, there is not much else to say. Despite claims to the contrary, the evidence has shown those present were not insurrectionists or terrorists.

None of these facts have stopped Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez from claiming otherwise, however. In fact, in a tweet published on Sunday, Ocasio-Cortez made the claim that the Jan. 6 riot was a “terror attack” that left “almost 10 dead.”

False and exaggerated claims concerning Jan. 6 are being used to give federal agencies unprecedented authority which would otherwise be seen as an infringement of constitutional rights.

“They have arrested pretty much anybody who took a selfie in the Capitol for federal crimes. They’re overcharging everything. They’re keeping people in solitary confinement, no bail, and basically abusing state power in a very scary way,”

Bottom line here is that the generated and false claims are being used to facilitate an abuse of power. The term "insurrection" is the key here.

After ten months with no one charged with the crime of "insurrection" I would think honest people would stop using the term.

Vandalism applies to most of the crimes committed. Prosecute for those crimes. At the level we saw prosecution of vandalism in Portland, Seattle, Minneapolis and other cities in the last few years.

But I have to point out and ask why,,,,; Somehow the cold murder of a demonstrator, a capital crime of serious proportion, has been lost in the discussion.

I wonder what that says about people still using that term?
