RedState publishes, then retracts Bonkers claims there was no riot on Capitol Hill

The conservative Red State website on Monday published and then retracted an article that angrily and falsely stated that there was no riot, insurgency, or “storming!” at the US Capitol last week.

“Let me be very clear. There was no riot in Washington. There was no insurgency. There was no “storming” of the Capitol, ”wrote playwright Mike Ford, A Retired Infantry Office. “There was a peaceful rally. There was a largely peaceful protest that was marred by bad acts committed by very few people. There was and there is absolutely nothing that could be traumatized or intimidated. It’s time to tell the press, politicians and even our pastors to stop the gas. “

The play dismissed last Wednesday’s riot – which left five people dead, including a policeman defending the building – as the actions of just “a few bozos”. The vast majority of the rioters, Ford asserted, “all remained within the velvet guide ropes, surely not the actions of a rabid mob doomed to violence or chaos.” The Conservative writer also described the violence as akin to “beating and pushing along the fence” and claimed that the death of Capitol Hill cop Brian D. Sicknick was “not officially linked to any violent act. and illegal ”.

After the immediate reaction online from critics pointing to the article’s many factual inaccuracies and potentially dangerous suggestions, RedState deleted the post. “Overnight, this article on January 6 was published,” the publication wrote in a note replacing the text of the article. “Many of the details, opinions and analysis in the article were either incorrect or inappropriate. It has been withdrawn and we regret its publication. “
