Democrat Bill Calls To Erect Memorial In Remembrance Of January 6 Riot

As the anniversary of January 6 approaches, we reflect on the fact that Democrats in the House have a bill referred to the Committee on House Administration that would erect a memorial and educational exhibit to the riot at the Capitol.

The bill, introduced by Representatives Jason Crow (CO) and Susan Wild (PA) back in March, appears to have stalled since then but is a reminder of how Democrats seek to keep the narrative over the one-time incident within public view at all times.

Crow had announced the legislation calling January 6th “one of the darkest days of our democracy” while chastising those who “try to dismiss the attacks as insignificant.”

Lehigh Valley Live reports that the bill is seeking to “establish a permanent memorial at the U.S. Capitol of the Jan. 6 riots.”

“What happened in the U.S. Capitol that day must never be allowed to happen again. Our effort will help ensure the sobering consequences of violent, anti-democratic rhetoric may never be lost to history,” Wild said at the time.

Memorial For January 6th

The Capitol Remembrance Act, as it is known, “would serve as a memorial to the heroic law enforcement officers who lost their lives and a reminder to future generations that our democracy is only as strong as our willingness to uphold it,” Crow explained.

Odd, Democrats are usually the party of tearing down monuments and memorials. Now they want to build one to memorialize what they’ve been calling a ‘white supremacy’ riot.

It is important to remember that a total of five people died during the Capitol riot, but only unarmed Air Force veteran and avid supporter of former President Trump, Ashli Babbitt was killed. The bill does not mention memorializing her life.

The bill text directs the Architect of the Capitol – yes, the AOC – to build a “permanent exhibit” or memorial that would include damaged property from the Capitol, photographic records, a plaque, and artwork depicting the January 6 attack.

We’re sure AOC (Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez) has been working hard creating a scene of attempted murder using fingerpaints for submission to the memorial.

Never Materialized

While the Capitol Remembrance Act garnered 26 co-sponsors since its introduction, the legislation never materialized as there appear to be no actions taken on it since that time.

Though it’s surprising that Representatives Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) and Liz Cheney (R-WY) were not on board with the memorial, the Select Committee investigating the January 6 riot does have some members as co-sponsors to the bill.

Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) and Committee Chair Bennie Thompson (D-MS) both signed on.

And though the memorial to the Capitol hasn’t gone anywhere as of yet, Democrats need not fear. They already have a memorial display remembering the events of January 6th at the Smithsonian.

Democrat New Jersey congressman Andy Kim announced this past July he would donate the suit he wore during the Capitol riot to the Smithsonian Museum, saying it is a symbol of “resilience and hope” for some people.

Aside from Kim and his Capitol protest suit, Crow and his memorial pitch, and Thompson and Schiff and their sham investigation, several Democrats have played up the severity of the events of January 6th.

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) claims she was almost murdered that day and admits she is in therapy because of it.

President Biden declared the events to be “the greatest assault since the Civil War on the Capitol.”
