Biden and Congress celebrate a year of violent riots

Washington: President Joe Biden celebrated the first anniversary of the US Capitol rebellion on Thursday. This is a violent attack by Trump supporters that has radically changed Congress and raised global concerns about the future of democracy in the United States.

Biden arrived at the Parliament building early on and said: I pray that there will be no more days, as it was today a year ago.

Democrats of the president and parliament began the morning in the statue hall, one of several places where riots swarmed and interrupted election counts a year ago. Biden contrasts the truth of what happened with the false stories that arose about the Capitol attack, including continued refusals by many Republicans to confirm that Biden won the 2020 elections. Is set to draw. He plans to highlight the ongoing threat facing national democracy by those who have used or tolerated the use of power to try to overturn the will of the people.

And at this point we have to decide what kind of country we will be, Biden would say according to an excerpt of his remarks released earlier Thursday. Will we be a country that accepts political violence as a norm? Will we be a country that allows partisan electoral authorities to overturn the legally stated will of the people? Will it be a country that lives in the shadow of lies, not in the light of truth? We cannot allow ourselves to become such a country. The way to move forward is to recognize the truth and live according to it.

Biden planned to outline the sole responsibility. He also planned to warn that January 6th is part of a lasting challenge to the country’s government system.

The split clearly reminds us of the rupture between the two parties as hundreds of Trump supporters slammed police, using their fists and flagpoles to break through the Capitol window and obstruct Biden’s proof of victory. Let me.

Republicans in Congress almost universally condemned the attack in the next few days, but most remained loyal to the former president.

Liz Cheney, chairman of the House committee investigating the attack and one of the few Republicans attending the Capitol ceremony, warned that the threat continued. “We continue to make the same claims he knows that caused the violence on January 6th,” Trump said.

Unfortunately, she told NBC Today that too many people in my own party are accepting the former president, taking a different view, and minimizing the risk. That’s how democracy dies. It cannot be achieved.

Others, including Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell, were absent, and a delegation of colleagues attended the funeral of former Georgia Senator Johnny Isaksson.

To inform the public, Democrats are investigating riot plans that will take the next few months to tell Americans exactly what happened on January 6, last year. However, leaders have a broader patriotic anniversary.

During the 2020 campaign, Biden went on to run for the White House after seeing Trump’s comment that some of the white supremacists marched in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017. He said the impetus is to fight for the soul of the country. American democracy is at stake, and his view is that the January 6 attack was a vivid demonstration of his fears.

On Thursday, an aide said Biden to tell the truth about the attack and what motivated it, even when some Republicans and the general public denied the case. That day he said he would return to his call during his inaugural address.

Biden said at the time that there was truth and there was a lie. The lie told for power and profit. And to each of us, as citizens, as Americans, and especially as leaders who have promised to respect our Constitution, keep the truth, and protect our country to defeat lies. There are obligations and responsibilities.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi also marked the anniversary with an ambitious appeal, saying in an interview Wednesday that democracy had won when Congress returned to the Capitol after the riots and confirmed Biden’s victory. I told the Associated Press.

To celebrate the anniversary, Pelosi planned a moment of silence at home. There, many members were evacuated and some were trapped when the mob tried to invade. She also makes a personal remark to the Hill staff who stayed as he told AP to protect our democracy.

Democratic leaders then have a modest discussion with historians Doris Kearns Goodwin and Jon Meacham. And a session featuring letters of recommendation from the members who were there that day. Many lawmakers will be absent due to concerns about COVID-19, but some events will be livestreamed and available.
