Reader Opinion: Remember

Republican candidates are flooding the airwaves with claims that they would be tougher on crime than Democrats. That claim does not square with their attitude towards those that attacked the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.

Republican candidates are flooding the airwaves with claims that they would be tougher on crime than Democrats. That claim does not square with their attitude towards those that attacked the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, nor towards those that incited the attack. Remember that the Republican National Committee โ€” the governing body of the Republican Party โ€” referred to this deadly, disgraceful, seditious attack on our democracy as "legitimate political discourse," the investigation into the attack as "persecution of ordinary citizens," and that many Republican officials are stonewalling efforts to bring those responsible for the attack to justice.
