    Curious what people think. We had the Congressional baseball shooting on June 14, 2017 where Republicans were actually shot by a deranged Bernie Sanders fan, putting our democracy at risk, and we had the January 6, 2021 incident this year where protesters supporting Trump were attempting to stop the democratic process of elections and possibly more, although the more never actually really happened and the election did wind up being certified anyway, despite the riot. I'm assuming most people know the facts of January 6th but I'm posting a link to the Congressional shooting as it was four years ago. One could argue that Bernie instigated the June 2017 "insurrection" and Trump instigated the January 2021 "insurrection". Cast your vote. Which one was worse?

    Wow, talk about far reaching!!! You appear to apply a very loose meaning to the word 'instigated'.

    LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Me? That is exactly what the left have done with Trump, which is my point. Trump didn't instigate January 6th any more than Bernie instigated June 2017.

    The Jan 6th insurrection was worse because Pelosi was in the crosshairs.

    The 2017 "insurrection" was against pro-gun Republicans who had recently blocked gun legislation even despite the Gabby Giffords shooting.

    The FBI has not found such evidence about Jan 6, there is a thread already on the recent leak.
    The laws being pushed would not habe stopped the Giffords shooting nor anythjng proposed afterwards, he passed a background check, and it had nothing to do with politics anyway.

    There wasn't one on 6 Jan 2021. Anyone who watched Trump's speech knows that. If Trump orchestrated an insurrection, then wouldn't he be charged? I don't believe the Democrats in America understand the word, "Insurrection", it sounds good to them, but that's about it.

    That's why we have Democrats investigating Jan 6th. with their kangaroo investigation, to get Trump.

    Your poll is stupid and unworthy of a vote.

    You cannot compare to unlike things. Sorry.

    And if you cant see the difference between the two, then I feel sorry for you and your family.
