Really?
If the 1/6 insurrectionists had all been big black men with clubs there would be no day for the next century that Republicans wouldn't bring it up.


I completely agree - but that's rather my point. Because the 1/6 rioters were Republicans (and Trump supporters more specifically), the GOP is trying to minimize the importance of the event. And they would have done had this taken place in 2000 as well. That's a key difference between 1/6 and 9/11 when it comes to the GOP response - the latter event was not perpetrated by Republicans, so there was no political risk to the party in acknowledging and exploring how terrible an event it was.
