Nothing he said was wrong. It is truth. The leftist protesters burned numerous businesses, looted stores and did an estimated $2 billion in damages. Many Democrats even supported their right to protest. Few condemned the violence even when cops were run over by protesters in cars.
The Jan 6 protest was basically a frat party that got out of control. No one lit the Capitol on fire. Some windows were broken and someone stole Nancy Pelosi's lectern. Vandals should be punished. But the overreaction to Jan 6 should tell everyone two things. First, our elected representatives are too out of touch with the People.

Now they have made it a crime to express the opinion that the lection was stolen.
