Legitimate Political Discourse isn't mob violence

"The Republican National Committee voted to censure Representatives Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger for participating in the inquiry into the deadly riot at the Capitol." - NY Times

We mapped insurrections globally where politicians resorted to violence rather than accept the will of the people and the rule of law. The history is terrifying.

Republicans support terrorist attack

  • "Rioters called for Pence to be hanged, was no big deal. The GOP codified it as a “legitimate” act on Friday, regardless of McDaniel’s ludicrous attempt to qualify the resolution’s language." - Rolling Stone
  • "Effort by the Republican Party to minimize what happened and the broader attempt by Mr. Trump and his allies to invalidate the results of the 2020 election. In approving it and opting to punish two of its own, Republicans seemed to embrace that the assault and the actions that preceded it were acceptable." - NYT
  • Mitt Romney's niece Ms. McDaniel, the Republican party chairwoman presided over the censure meeting.

"Today is the day a major political party announced its support for a terrorist attack," wrote Walter Shaub, a senior ethics fellow with the Project On Government Oversight, a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization exposing federal government corruption. After the resolution was approved, Cheney tweeted a 31-second video showing a violent mob attacking police officers with flag poles and other objects, as well as storming into the building and forcing their way past barricades during the riot. - Newsweek

Beer Hall Project

@BeerHallProject. History has shown what happens when attempted insurrections are left unpunished so we’ve founded the Beer Hall Project with a single focus - to fight on the front lines against the far-right’s campaign to erase & revise the events of #January6th. This isn’t legitimate political discourse and it wasn’t peaceful demonstrators. This is the raw violence. Learn more.
