    G.O.P. Declares Jan. 6 Attack ‘Legitimate Political Discourse’
    The Republican National Committee voted to censure Representatives Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger for participating in the inquiry into the deadly riot at the Capitol.

    The Republican Party on Friday officially declared the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol and events that led to it “legitimate political discourse,” formally rebuking two lawmakers in the party who have been most outspoken in condemning the deadly riot and the role of Donald J. Trump in spreading the election lies that fueled it.

    The Republican National Committee’s overwhelming voice vote to censure Representatives Liz Cheney of Wyoming and Adam Kinzinger of Illinois at its winter meeting in Salt Lake City culminated more than a year of vacillation, which started with party leaders condemning the Capitol attack and Mr. Trump’s conduct, then shifted to downplaying and denying it.

    On Friday, the party went further in a resolution slamming Ms. Cheney and Mr. Kinzinger for taking part in the House investigation of the assault, saying they were participating in “persecution of ordinary citizens engaged in legitimate political discourse.”
    Any conservative want to defend the GOP?

          Just to stay on Trump’s good side.

          The GOP consists of nothing but Trumpist traitors and spineless traitor enablers.

            At last, the Republican Party has come all the way out and publicly acknowledged what most Americans already knew, i.e., that the party is nothing more than an insurrectionist insurgency bent on the overthrow of our government and the destruction of our democratic republic.

            These people should henceforth be treated accordingly, i.e., as domestic enemies.

              I think they said talking about 1/6 was legitimate, in any way you feel like, not the actual rioting itself where a crime was committed. The committee is being used to go after all conservatives, people that didn't break laws on 1/6. If the RNC were talking about the arrested people being all legitimate then they would be petitioning the DOJ that have them in jail.

              However most of the people in jail are being overcharged. Note the word 'most' does not mean 'all'. Some just stood outside on the day and watched (there was a license for the protest outside the capital that day).

              Imagine if some of the BLM rioters got into the WH during the 5/29 'insurrection' attempt and the DOJ put them in solitary for a year without charging and with limited lawyer opportunities.

                I take it the meaning of "conservative" has changed?

                    Yep. It means shitting on vets. It means shitting on the Capitol. It means assaulting cops. It means excusing white supremacists.

                    "Conservative" means "shits on the Constitution" now.

                      That cop is taking a nap on the capitol steps, and peaceful protestors appear to be protecting him with a crutch and a pipe… another giving him a neck massage…

                            One of them is grabbing his ass too, which isn’t that surprising since they all worship President Pussy-Grabber. Can’t spell grope anymore without the letters G-O-P. Not good!!!!

                              Trumpist and traitor are synonymous.

                                            The people who "just stood outside on the day and watched" were not arrested; nor were they jailed.

                                            And many who did enter the Capitol building were undercharged -- charged only with trespassing or remaining in a restricted building. Those people got a slap on the wrist fine.

                                              What??

                                              Did you even read what was written?

                                              The Republican Party on Friday officially declared the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol and events that led to it “legitimate political discourse”

                                              The reference is to the "attack" itself, not a "discussion about the attack".

                                                Good comment on the article:

                                                Remember when DJT said about John McCain, “I like people that weren’t captured.”

                                                Well, I like people that didn’t attempt to overthrow the government.
