Definitely not an insurrection

A group of people with strong political beliefs held a demonstration in Washington DC. At the conclusion of that demonstration, some number of demonstrators forced their way into a government building and, in the process, injured several police officers.

Videos of the demonstration rapidly made their way online, depicting protestors forcing their way into the building and protesting once inside.

Oh…this wasn’t on January 6, this occurred this week.

Dozens of climate activists have been arrested after they clashed with police in Washington DC and forced their way into the Interior Department building in scenes that some have called reminiscent of the US Capitol riot.

An Interior Department spokeswoman said a group of demonstrators rushed the lobby on Thursday, injuring multiple security officers, at least of whom was taken to a nearby hospital.

Police and protesters clashed outside the building, and officers used Tasers and batons against several unarmed protesters, representatives for the activist group said. The group said 55 participants were arrested.

The only difference I can see between this and what happened January 6 is that none of the protesters were shot by cops with itchy trigger fingers.

Oh…and the dearth of major news outlets screaming endlessly about the insurrection.

Why? Because this insurrection was thrown by lefties.

Heck, I can’t even find a major news outlet that reported on it, let alone called the incident an “insurrection” or claimed the perpetrators are traitors. Note that the story linked is from the UK.

And they wonder why we suspect that they might be a tad biased.
