Here’s President Biden in Philadelphia talking about the storming of the Capitol on January 6, and citing it as the most significant test of our democracy since the Civil War. After all, the Confederates never breached the Capitol as those insurrectionists did. We’re tempted here to compare the body counts of January 6 and the Civil War to see which was the more significant test.
Biden says Trump supporters are worse than slave-owning Confederates: "We are facing the most significant test of our democracy since the Civil War. That's not hyperbole…The Confederates back then never breached the Capitol as insurrectionists did"

The talking points are certainly out there. CNN’s Anderson Cooper called January 6 “the worst single act of political violence since the Civil War.” Sen. Chuck Schumer scaled things back a bit, comparing January 6 to the bombing of Pearl Harbor.
He is absolutely saying it to alarm you.

"You should be alarmed." But if you're not alarmed, don't be alarmed, because "I'm not saying this to alarm you."

“That’s not hyperbole” he says.

Narrator; "It's hyperbole."

That is, in fact, hyperbole.

No they just attempted to completely separate from the union and created the most bloody war in our history. But yeah, not nearly as bad

Right, they only led a war that killed more Americans than any war

Well an important distinction is confederates didn’t have lego sets to plan assaults, which is a major factor in making modern warfare so dangerous.

@JoeBiden dividing our country even further. Although we know that he did not write that he’s just reading what they put in front of him

It lasted four hours, seven months ago. How big a threat could it possibly be, you utter clown?

The experts in the intelligence community keep assuring us that it will happen again.
But we'd need nukes and F-15s to take down the government?

We’ve also been assured that is true.
