David Horowitz authored this op-ed on the real lessons of the January 6 demonstration. Have the Democrats gotten the mileage they hoped for from their plan, which certainly was in place on that day, and perhaps before it? I doubt it.
According to a report by the Inspector General, Donald Trump offered to provide thousands of national guard troops to protect the U.S. Capitol on January 6th, 2021. Trump was concerned about the possibility of trouble from fringe elements on the left and right who might see it as an occasion to cause trouble. His offer was rejected by Pelosi and the Democrats who instead provided a grossly under-manned Capitol police force instead. The under-manned force was unable to set up a defensive perimeter around the building; which is why there is extensive video footage showing Capitol police officers escorting demonstrators into the building.
The January 6th protest was milder than any of the hundreds of Black Lives Matter riots the summer before, and led to no serious destruction of Capitol artifacts. But the Democrats en masse pretended to be horrified. They denounced the protest as an “armed insurrection” and compared it to Pearl Harbor and 9/11 and other enemy attacks on the United States which resulted in thousands of deaths.

That makes no sense to me.
Show me video footage of demonstrators over-powering an under-manned police force and physically forcing doors open, and walking UNescorted into the building -- and THEN I might think that this was bad behavior by demonstrators.
As it is, I see tourists being escorted by cops.
After the 2020 election, there had been 2 huge pro-Trump rallies, each drawing about 250,000 people. Both rallies had been totally peaceful on the part of the pro-Trumpers, the only violence came at the end of the rallies when Antifa and BLM terrorists attacked mostly older rallygoers or women and children. There was no reason for Trump to think that his supporters would be involved in any violence.

Just curious why this states that the piece was authored by Horowitz, yet formatted like it’s the “copier”’s piece.
Why not just print it and show Horowitz as the by-line?
Seems a bit strange. Not the way one would expect to see a credited piece.
I know the real reason for the rally,
Because I was there.
