An Unpunished Coup Is A Training Exercise
3 Years After J6, The GOP Continues Weakening Democracy

January 6, 2024The Republican Party continues to weaken democracy three years after Trump and his MAGA followers nearly succeeded in stopping the peaceful transfer of power. The Lincoln Project is releasing video messages from co-founders Reed Galen and Rick Wilson on the anniversary of the January 6th Insurrection. 

Rick Wilson calls for the GOP ringleaders who helped Trump plan the January 6th Insurrection to be punished because a “Coup that goes unpunished is a training exercise.” January 6th was a terrorist attack on the nation, and those defending it today are falling into the same category of those who planned attacks on the Capitol – like Osama bin Laden. But also Rick tells viewers that Americans should be proud of this anniversary because of the brave police who held the line at the “temple of American democracy”.  Please watch Rick’s video here:

Reed Galen asks everyone to keep in mind those who defended the capitol on January 6th and saved democracy. Every person should honor their sacrifice by doing everything they can this election year to ensure that Trump and the MAGA movement are defeated. Please watch the video here:

The Lincoln Project is a leading pro-democracy organization in the United States — dedicated to the preservation, protection, and defense of democracy.
