President Joe Biden recently shocked the nation when he characterized the Jan. 6 riots as worse than the confederate conflict.
Biden implied “January 6 rioters are worse than slave-owning Confederates in the Civil War because they breached the U.S. Capitol,” according to Breitbart News.
As Breitbart noted, Biden said:
The assault on free and fair elections is just such a threat — literally. I’ve said it before. We’re facing the most significant test of our democracy since the Civil War. It’s not hyperbole — since the Civil War. Confederates, back then, never breached the Capitol as insurrectionists did on January 6. I’m not saying this to alarm you. I’m saying this because you should be alarmed.
Then, Biden doubled down.
“I never thought in my entire career I would have to say it. But I swore an oath to you and to God to preserve protect and defend the Constitution,” said Biden. “That’s an oath that forms a sacred trust to defend America against all threats both foreign and domestic.”
