GOP increasingly balks at calling January 6 an insurrection

“You know what, police officers deserve to be awarded without having language in there that is offensive. And [Speaker] Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) should have a bill where we can all vote for it and give them awards,” said Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), adding that she “absolutely” objected to the House-passed bill’s use of the term “insurrectionists.”

When asked by The Hill whether she believed Jan. 6 amounted to an insurrection, Greene, one of Trump's most vocal backers, instead pointed to unrelated violence by other groups.

“When you guys start asking about antifa and [Black Lives Matter] being insurrectionists, then I think we can have a grown-up, adult conversation about that,” she said.
