Rep. Lieu said on MSNBC:
If Republicans want to the risk of further political violence, everyone to do is an easy one to say truthful sentence, the choice was not stolen. The refusal to do so and to continue to advertise the big lie harmful to our democracy and it will lead to more political violence.
The people who showed up January 6th and ambush our Capitol, you are not heroes. You are a traitor. They are insurgents. And everyone who shows up today to support these people also from the same mindset and it’s high worrying that you still have People in America who want take our democracy and destroy it it.
More members of the press than demonstrators attended the Justice for J6 rally. The rally was bust for a show of strength and support for local terrorists. CNN, MSNBC and Fox have largely stayed away from it for exactly the reason Rep. Lieu has suggested. The cable news networks do not want to provide a platform for terrorists.
The rally participants and their speakers are trying to destroy democracy. Rep. Lieu was right, and these people are traitors who should not be given a platform.
