The Cambridge Dictionary defines "insurrection" as: "an organized attempt by a group of people to defeat their government and take control of their country, usually by violence. By that definition, there was no "insurrection" at the United States Capitol on Jan. 6. The Democrats want to use that word because its all they have to save a sinking ship in the 2022 midterm elections.
Comparing the January 6th protest to 9/11 and Pearl Harbor is shameful and an insult to the good Americans who gave their lives on those tragic days. What makes it worse is that they do it for political gain.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez referred to the Capitol riot on Jan. 6 as “a terror attack,” which she said resulted in “almost 10 dead.” Fact check: 4 dead, all trump supporters. 2 from heart failure, 1 from drug overdose and Ashli Babbitt, 35, of San Diego. A 17 year Air Force veteran who was unarmed and murdered by a Capital Police officer.
On November 7, 1983, the Senate adjourned at 7:02 p.m. A crowded reception, held near the Senate Chamber, broke up two hours later. At 10:58 p.m., an explosion tore through the second floor of the Capitol's north wing. Minutes before the bomb went off, a caller claiming to represent the "Armed Resistance Unit" warned a Capitol switchboard operator that a bomb had been placed near the chamber. After a five-year investigation, in May 1988 FBI agents arrested seven members of the "Resistance Conspiracy". Marilyn Jean Buck, Linda Sue Evans, Susan Rosenberg, Timothy Blunk, Alan Berkman, Laura Whitehorn and Elizabeth Ann Duke. They were charged with executing the Capitol bombing as well as triggering similar blasts at Fort McNair and the Washington Navy Yard.
According to the Cambridge Dictionary this was an insurrection not what took place on January 6th. The FBI concluded that the attack on the U.S. Capitol was not the result of an organized plot to overturn the presidential election result. A blow to Biden and his cohorts.
No insurrection here.
