Marjorie Taylor Greene wants everyone to just get over January 6 | CNN Politics
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has had just about enough of this talk about the attack on the US Capitol on January 6, 2021.
“The American people are fed up with this over-dramatization of a riot that happened here at the Capitol one time,” the Georgia Republican told NBC News recently. “They are sick and tired of Jan. 6 — it’s over, OK?”
Um, no. Not okay.
Last May, Georgia Republican Rep. Andrew Clyde said this about the riot:
“Watching the TV footage of those who entered the Capitol and walked through Statuary Hall showed people in an orderly fashion staying between the stanchions and ropes taking videos and pictures. You know, if you didn’t know the TV footage was a video from January the 6th, you would actually think it was a normal tourist visit.”
And, just a month after the riot, Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson insisted that “this didn’t seem like an armed insurrection to me.”
(About that claim, PolitiFact wrote this: “We still can identify accounts of numerous weapons found in and around the Capitol, brought there in some cases by people who saw themselves as soldiers in a war.”)
