Many in the GOP attempt to equate the Black Lives Matter protests with the Jan 6th attempted coup. Republican Adam Kinzinger dispels the fraud.
Republican dispels GOP Jan 6 false equivalence
Adam Kinzinger was emotional throughout the hearing. It is clear that the officers’ testimony and video had the same effect on him as it had on most humane and patriotic Americans.
Kinzinger went on to make a profound statement. He dispelled any notion that the January 6th insurrection, the terrorist attack against the Capitol, the attempted coup was in any way similar to the Black Lives Matter protests. While I disagree with his characterization of the BLM protests, his conclusion was spot on.
“Mr. Chairman, I was called on to serve during the summer riots as an Air National Guardsman,” Adam Kinzinger said. “I condemned those riots and the destruction of property that resulted. But not once did I ever feel that the future of self-government was threatened like I did on Jan. 6. There is a difference between breaking the law and rejecting the rule of law, between a crime, even grave crimes, and a coup.”
Kinzinger then reminded the committee their oath was not to any party but to the Constitution that represents all Americans. One hopes more sane elected Republicans will step up.
