Glenn Kirschner: If the J6 Rally on 9/18 is Relatively Peaceful, What Will That Tell Us About the Violence of 1/6?


September 18,2021

The rally on January 6 turned into a violent attack on the US Capitol as a result of the words and actions of Donal Trump, Rudy Giuliani, Mo Brooks and others. In other words, January 6 was, in a very real sense, a Donald Trump production. Donald Trump did not arrange the 9/18 rally and will not speak at the rally. Accordingly, if the rally planned for Saturday, September 18, in support of the insurrectionists who attacked the Capitol on January 6, is largely peaceful, that will reinforce that the January 6 attack was provoked, encouraged and incited by Donald Trump and the others who spoke to and incited the angry mob on January 6.
