Just minutes after the attack of January 6th began I said it was not only unpatriotic, it was un-American.

I do not need to be convinced that what happened on that day was the disgraceful work of a treasonous criminal mob.

But seeing images of that attack stirred up anger in me.

Anger that our nation was embarrassed in the eyes of the world by our own citizens.

Anger that Capitol Police officers that my family and I know personally had to deal with these low-lives.

Anger that janitorial and food service staff I have gotten to know – many who came to America to get away from countries with political violence – had to clean up the mess left behind by these cretins.
