According to a new poll, 57 percent of Republicans regard the planned Jan. 6, 2021 U.S. Capitol insurrection dubbed an uprising by left-wing Democrats and their RINO enablers as “an act of patriotism.”
According to the recent poll conducted by The New Republic, a majority of Republicans are rejecting the lies and propaganda surrounding Jan. 6.
“Would you consider the actions of those who forced their way into the United States Capitol on January 6, 2021, an insurrection against the United States or an act of patriotism?” was one of the questions in a recent poll. According to 43 percent of Republicans, it was an insurrection, while 57% said it was an act of patriotism
“I’m not sure whether we should take comfort in the fact that there are still 43 percent of Republicans who believe it was wrong, or be disappointed by the fact that it’s only 43 percent,” sneered liberal pollster Guy Molyneux of Hart Research Associates.
Last year, as we reported, President Trump said he wished he’d marched with his most loyal supporters to the US Capitol on Jan. 6:
“President Trump said that had he not been prevented from doing so by the U.S. Secret Service on Jan. 6, 2020, he would have gone to the US Capitol with his supporters like he originally planned.”
“Trump stated this during an interview with the Washington Post, blaming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for allegedly ordering Capitol Police to stand down as the violent protest was staged.”
“I thought it was odd, and I kept asking why is she not doing anything about it? Why isn’t Pelosi taking action? The mayor of D.C. and Pelosi are the ones in charge,” Trump added.
“I didn’t want to see it. I didn’t want to look at it, and I said, “It must be taken care of,” so I assumed they were doing so.”
President Trump ultimately placed the blame on the Secret Service for not allowing him to keep his promise and walk with his supporters to the US Capitol on that tragic day.
“Secret Service said I could not go. Otherwise, I would have gone,” he said.
