LAURA INGRAHAM (HOST): Mollie, what's worse? Pretending that the left hasn't been engaging in their own political violence for years, or pretending that January 6th is really something that's defining the Republican Party at this point?

MOLLIE HEMINGWAY: I mean, to some extent they are the same thing. We know the left has engaged in political violence for decades, and it has not been condemned, unfortunately, by Democrat politicians. You remember in the summer of 2020 that people all the way up to and including Kamala Harris and Joe Biden were encouraging riots where people were attacking the White House, federal courthouses, people's businesses, police precincts. This was -- and this was coordinated, and this was nationwide and you didn't hear much pushback and conservatives and Republicans have been pretty consistent in condemning political violence. And the aberration, as you point out, of one day of rioting versus this ongoing campaign of threatening people and intimidating them, I mean it's -- there's not really a comparison.
