Tomorrow marks the second anniversary of the assault on the US Capitol. January sixth, like September eleventh or December seventh, is a date that is emblazoned within the American psyche as a pivotal second in our nation’s historical past. The assault on the Capitol — a part of a conspiracy to overturn the 2020 presidential election — shook the foundations of American democracy. A bipartisan Home Choose Committee that spent 18 months investigating the assault has revealed an intensive and damning report that lays the blame for the rebel squarely on the ft of former US president Donald Trump. If Republicans work out their internecine combating over the Speakership, they’ve promised investigations within the new Congress that concentrate on Joe Biden and his administration.
Students, historians and journalists are nonetheless finding out the actors and their motivations behind the violence on January sixth, 2021.
Right now on Noon, a dialog with two students who examine the affect of Christian nationalists on the occasions of that day, and the way they match into the panoply of teams that organized and executed the assault.
