An unfortunate consequence of the right wing’s spectacle on January 6th is that masses of people, including radicals, will associate insurrection only with the far right. While no revolutionary can possibly believe that what took place was an insurrection, the media and the Democratic Party have made the case that it was exactly that. At this moment, so-called American citizens are called forth to defend our so-called democracy against so-called fascism. But insurrection does not exclusively belong to the right.
