US Capitol belongs to people

“Pretending the Jan. 6 demonstration was an insurrection is silly. An ‘insurrection,’ which didn’t seek to topple any government, which was in support of the sitting president, and where the armed people were all on the other side? Nonsense. On top of this, it infuriates me that anyone could be charged with a crime for entering a building that belongs to the people — not to government — and for protesting there. To treat this as a crime is injustice. Any government pursuing this sort of case against any individual has delegitimized itself beyond repair.” (11/10/21)
