What happened to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) this week is a significant victory for the corporate media and a perfect illustration of how the media trick Republicans into damaging themselves.
What we saw at the U.S. Capitol on January 6 was nothing close to a terrorist attack or an insurrection or Pearl Harbor or 9/11. It was a mostly peaceful protest where a bunch of yahoos turned violent. That’s it. That’s all it was. Unfortunately, things went too far, and the lawbreakers are being punished.
Obviously, the riot was not pre-planned, for had it been, maybe one person — just one — would have been armed. Maybe one person — just one — would have been charged by the left-wing Department of Justice
