On the occasion of the January 6 anniversary, let us reflect on the fact the Democrats in the House have passed a bill that refers to the Committee on House Administration. This bill would allow for a permanent memorial to the victims of the Capitol Riot.
The March bill introduced by Jason Crow (CO), Susan Wild(PA) seems to have been stalled. It is however a reminder that Democrats are determined to keep the history of the incident in public view.
Crow had announced the legislation calling January 6th “one of the darkest days of our democracy” while chastising those who “try to dismiss the attacks as insignificant.”
Lehigh Valley Live reports that the bill is seeking to “establish a permanent memorial at the U.S. Capitol of the Jan. 6 riots.”
“What happened in the U.S. Capitol that day must never be allowed to happen again. Our effort will help ensure the sobering consequences of violent, anti-democratic rhetoric may never be lost to history,” Wild said at the time.
Some of my GOP coworkers are currently trying to make January 6th a more real event.
It’s not on my wrist.

The Capitol Remembrance Act, as it is known, “would serve as a memorial to the heroic law enforcement officers who lost their lives and a reminder to future generations that our democracy is only as strong as our willingness to uphold it,” Crow explained.
It’s odd that Democrats are the party who demolish monuments and memorials. Now they want to build one to memorialize what they’ve been calling a ‘white supremacy’ riot.
Recall that while five people perished in the Capitol riots, Ashlibabbitt (an Air Force veteran, avid Trump supporter) was the only person killed. She is not mentioned in the bill as a memorial.
The bill text directs the Architect of the Capitol – yes, the AOC – to build a “permanent exhibit” or memorial that would include damaged property from the Capitol, photographic records, a plaque, and artwork depicting the January 6 attack.
We’re sure AOC (Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez) has been working hard creating a scene of attempted murder using fingerpaints for submission to the memorial.
Today marks 100 days after the Capitol Insurrection. @RepJasonCrow & I visited the gallery for the first time since that day. Together, we’re leading the Capitol Remembrance Act to ensure history isn’t forgotten.
Please take care of yourself & one another. We’re in this together. pic.twitter.com/KdsuE6iamR

The Dream Never Come True
Although the Capitol Remembrance Act was introduced with 26 cosponsors, it never became law as the bill has not been implemented.
Though it’s surprising that Representatives Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) and Liz Cheney (R-WY) were not on board with the memorial, the Select Committee investigating the January 6 riot DoesReceive co-sponsors from some of your members.
Both Representative Adam Schiff (D–CA) and Chair of the Committee Bennie Thompson (D–MS) signed on.
“If we find something that is irregular or illegal, we’re obligated to report it.”

And though the memorial to the Capitol hasn’t gone anywhere as of yet, Democrats need not fear. The Smithsonian already has a permanent memorial to the January 6th events.
Democrat New Jersey congressman Andy Kim announced this past July he would donate the suit he wore during the Capitol riot to the Smithsonian Museum, saying it is a symbol of “resilience and hope” for some people.
Today is 6 months ago. I was wearing this suit when I cleaned the Capitol following the uprising. I have just given it to Smithsonian. Jan6 should never be forgotten. Some people try to erase the past, but I’ll fight to keep it from happening again. Here is one story…(THREAD) pic.twitter.com/GKePd1ZMrr

Other than Kim, his Capitol protest costume, Crow, his memorial pitch, Thompson, Schiff, and their fraudulent investigation, several Democrats have exaggerated how serious the events of January 6th.
Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) claims she was almost murdered that day and admits she is in therapy because of it.
President Biden declared the events to be “the greatest assault since the Civil War on the Capitol.”
