Joe Biden stated that the Capitol Hill riot was “the worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War,” according to Town Hall.
“As I stand here tonight — just one day shy of the 100th day of my administration. 100 days since I took the oath of office, lifted my hand off our family Bible, and inherited a nation in crisis.”
“The worst pandemic in a century. The worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. The worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War.”

Some readers cite material that says the bomb went off near Senate Democrat Leader Robert Byrd's office, which is true, but omits the fact that the bomb set near the Republican senators' cloakroom. Here's a 1983 Washington Post article for verification. https://t.co/dF2CemMHIm pic.twitter.com/hJPTTbUTCb

What about the 1971 bombing done by the Weather Underground. pic.twitter.com/2fwsAGF9Qt

Biden asserts riot was a worse attack than various bombings and deadly attacks on the Capitol, deadly Summer of Rage with its attacks on the WH and federal court buildings, four presidential assassinations, another five assassination attempts, Pearl Harbor, and 9/11. OK. https://t.co/1S7Hc0nsLW

Biden declaring January 6 “the worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War” is insultingly ludicrous. Politicians will be on their death bed decades from now recounting the grave emotional toll of Congressional activity being delayed for a couple hours

More from Townhall:
One woman was shot by Capitol Police on Jan. 6, three people died from “medical emergencies,” and Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick, who the media falsely reported was struck with a fire extinguisher during the riot, died the day after from natural causes related to two strokes, according to the Washington, D.C., medical examiner.
