1. The sophistry of Tucker Carlson. He says the insurrectionists were old people who got there on a bus and walked through "the People's House". He says they "talked." He doesn't mention the beatings, the deaths. Carlson's spew was a clinic on gaslighting...
2. This is the right wing's newest thing. They need to destroy the reality of 1/6. They'll do it any way they can. Tucker does it by cherry picking irrelevant facts and pretending those facts define the entire event.
3. Trump outright lies about it, defining it as some kind of a love fest with kisses and hugs. Much like the South's reaction to losing the civil war, the republican party has to bend the facts, diminishing what those facts say about the right wing.
