Rhode Island Democrat David Cicilline is asking colleagues to sign on to a resolution that calls for censoring any Republican who doesn’t agree that it was worse than the Minneapolis riots that saw 1,500 buildings burned to the ground and looted. How many businesses did they loot? How many buildings were burned? How many police officers were blinded by laser pointers?
I could go on but why bother? Censuring a member of the House is the second harshest punishment a member can receive behind expulsion.
The Democrats blew up what actually happened at the Capitol for political reasons. They used the three-hour affair to distract from the hundreds of nights of rioting by antifa and BLM. That is a really unfair comparison.
The Republicans that Cicilline called out include Reps. Andrew Clyde (Ga.), Jody Hice (Ga.), and Paul Gosar (Ariz.). It is not known if more could be added later but one thing I am sure of and that is the Democrats who praised antifa and BLM as peaceful protesters will not be subject to censure.
You can take that to the bank.
The resolution comes as a growing number of pro-Trump lawmakers are seeking to downplay the violence that unfolded on Jan. 6, when scores of people broke into the Capitol, prompting then-Vice President Mike Pence, congressional leaders, rank-and-file lawmakers, staff, and others to flee and take shelter in various parts of the Capitol complex.
Rioters aggressively confronted law enforcement officials on the House floor, who had their guns drawn. A handful of GOP lawmakers also stood at the ready, prepared for hand-to-hand combat. Rep. Troy Nehls (R-Texas), one of those members, told POLITICO in January that he saw a man carrying a flag on a long wooden pole that was sharpened on the end.
basically, these Republicans are being rebuked for not going along with the Democrat’s false narrative. And we are to believe that BLM and antifa are Boy Scouts and Campfire Girls.

The Republicans may have exaggerated in saying the riot was peaceful but if you are going to be honest, the Democrats magnified the events fivefold.
AOC claimed her life was in danger and she thought she was going to get killed and she wasn’t even in the building when it happened.
Another day, another liberal gone mad.
