The Jan. 6 incursion into the U.S. Capitol was jarring and contentious, and nearly every major Republican admitted that many individuals acted inappropriately. With that said, leftists have lied about the event ever since as they attempt to villainize Trump supporters at large.
On Wednesday, President Joe Biden lied once again about the Jan. 6 incursion. After meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Geneva, Biden held a news conference in which a reporter asked him to respond to Putin’s ban on protests in Russia.
According to the U.K. Daily Mail, Putin said he banned protests because “he did not want a repeat of the January 6 riots in his country, or for a group like Black Lives Matter to form there.” This comment angered Biden, probably because he hypocritically defends one of those groups while condemning the other.
“I think that’s a ridiculous comparison,” Biden said. “It’s one thing for, literally, criminals to break through a cordon, go into the Capitol, kill a police officer, and be held unaccountable than it is for people objecting and marching on the Capitol and saying you are not allowing me to speak freely, you are not allowing me to do A, B, C or D. And so they’re very different criteria.”
