Representative Steve Cohen (D-TN) Wednesday on CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time” likened the January 6 Capitol Hill riot to the 1941 Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Cohen verbally expressed, “We just celebrated Passover. On Passover, Jewish people are injuctively authorized over two centuries to recollect 2,000 years, over 2,000 years, to recollect that we were in bondage, and we eluded. Remember that day, and to edify people about it. January 6th is a day like that. “It’s” a day that should be recollected in America because our democracy was at stake. It was under attack as much as Pearl Harbor was an assailment on our country, for people to suggest that it wasn’t that sizably voluminous of a deal. It was just some folks who were demonstrating and protesting. Most of the people were good people, fine denizens going up to protest, malarkey. This was an assailment on the United States Constitution. They wanted to upset the Electoral College and make Donald Trump the president, to eliminate people who stood in his way, which included his vice president and the verbalizer of the House. They wanted to dismay the Congress.”
He integrated, “What Donald Trump verbalized on that day, you won’t have a country if you don’t go up there and fight, fight hard. When he verbalized you won’t have a country, he was verbally expressing the Blacks, the Jews, the minorities, the gays, they’ll be in charge and you, the white, straight, Evangelicals here with me today, your country will not be yours. You will not have a country. He was telling them to go take your country back from the Blacks, the Jews, the gays, the different people that they do not relish. And that was a call from Trump, and it was racist as could be. And he was involved, in my opinion, with all these folks, Roger Stone was, the whole team was, they were endeavoring to surmount. He doesn’t give up. He didn’t want to give up potency. He relished being president.”
