The January 6 Insurrectionist “Movement”

January 10, 2022

Heather McDonald writes in City Journal on January 9 about the political value of the January 6 insurrection to President Biden and a fawning American news media. Her critique is complete except for one omission.

University of  Chicago “terrorism” expert Robert Pape has conducted surveys that reveal that 21 million Americans believe that Joe Biden is an illegitimate president and that use of force to return Donald Trump to his Office as President is justified.

From that Pape infers that they represent a “mainstream movement.” The counties from which they came are majority white populations and they are concerned that the Democrat Party is deliberately attempting to change their counties’ demographics and the racial composition of the United States.

Pape’s research of those arrested for invading the U.S. Capitol demonstrates that they were employed professionals and business owners, not the unemployed. As such Pape sees parallels to Germans who supported the Nationalist Socialists (Nazis).
