    What was organized was the time and place for the rally, the planting and festering of the lie, and the command to go to the Capitol and fight. It wasn't just a protest. Protests stay outside. Insurgents wanted in to stop the democratic and lawful certification even that meant taking out a few politicians.

    I take it you didn't read Greenwald's article.

    I have read the article and the stand out point for me is that it is now common practice amongst almost all Americans to lie. It's as common a reaction as breathing. It is accepted as part of daily life and there are no consequences. Because everyone accepts lieing there is no longer any outrage when it occurs. This is a society rotting at every level without a moral compass. I suggest we choose not to go down that path at our own peril.

    True. There is a lot of lying.

    "Look up any story about the storming of the Capitol by Donald Trump supporters, and you will find it described as a “deadly riot” that killed five people Worse still, one of the deaths was that a police officer who – the story goes – was killed by rioters after getting hit in the head by a fire extinguisher.

    Then there is the story of the protestor who “carried Zip Ties into the Capitol,” which led to accusations that the protestors intended to take hostages.

    There have also been endless media descriptions of the event as an “armed insurrection.”

    And there were stories claiming that, as Reuters put it, “Capitol rioters meant to ‘capture and assassinate’ officials.”

    What is common about all of these media-fed narratives?

    Not one of them is true. Not. One."

    The Capital rioters built a gallows outside the building. They chanted "Hang Pence". In fact there were firearms carried by rioters as shown on video. The policeman who died from being struck with a fire extinguisher died later of an internal brain hemmorrage so there would be no video of him gushing blood from a head wound.
    If you feel the need to defend "Make America White Again" rioters , you have my deepest sympathies.
