January 6 is just around the corner, and we’re bracing for the onslaught of even-more-insufferably-self-righteous-than-usual liberal huffing and puffing.
It’s going to be an emotional week on Capitol Hill. With the anniversary of the Jan. 6 Capitol siege, Congress is planning an array of memorials and speeches to commemorate one of the darkest days in American history. More in today's Daily Briefing: https://t.co/ASTlS5Zrdb

Media are salivating, of course. CNN’s doing a whole big event to commemorate the first anniversary, and they definitely won’t be the only outlet milking this for all its worth.
But the Democrats are plenty excited in their own right. So excited, in fact, that they’re getting a shout-out from Politico for it:
But Democrats are hoping that Thursday will be more than just a day of remembrance. In the Senate, we hear from well-positioned sources, there’s a desire to take the opportunity to supercharge the party’s long-stalled voting rights legislation — possibly even using the anniversary to try to get Sens. KYRSTEN SINEMA (D-Ariz.) and JOE MANCHIN (D-W.Va.) to go nuclear on the filibuster or embrace rules changes.
And, as Ben Shapiro points out, in not ignoring them, Politico accidentally exposed the Democrats’ true motivation for keeping the “insurrection” narrative alive:
Democrats don't give two damns about January 6. They care about exploiting January 6 in order to push forward an agenda to kill the filibuster and mandate corruption-ridden voting practices nationwide. This, from Politico, is the whole ballgame. pic.twitter.com/d80wdu5XUK

Come January 6, Democrats will have spent an entire year railing against the riots for threatening democracy and all that America stands for, but the truth is that for Democrats, January 6 is their political and policy weapon of choice. Not a day has gone by that they haven’t woken up in the morning and thanked their lucky stars for January 6 and everything it’s allowed them to get away with and everything they hope it will allow them to get away with.
Don’t forget the NeverTrump pundits who don’t actually care about it but keep talking about it to maintain their platform. https://t.co/aFVG4vcelh

We aren’t going to sit here and justify the riots on January 6. No one should. But Democrats are straight-up lying to you when they claim to be angry about the Capitol riots; they see the riots as a gift, the ticket to enacting their corrupt agenda.
The Jan 6th Committe is a FRAUD. They dont care about anything other than exploiting it to tighten their grasp on power https://t.co/VvlHV5qsJP
