What else is the left focusing on?
    sit amet
  • Bannon broke the law by defying the congressional subpoena.
  • Bannon used his arrest to advocate for his insurrectionist agenda.
  • Republicans in Congress had a chance to establish a non-partisan committee about January 6th.
  • Bannon knows that the Democrat-dominated January 6th committee only wants him there so they can score political points.
  • Bannon was placed in handcuffs even though he’s only facing a misdemeanor charge.
The narrative

Sarley was being racist, and she was held accountable for her actions.  Companies who claim to support anti-racism should ensure their employees do as well. Everyday racism is a major problem, and a lot of people continue to defend it.  

Sarley is a victim who was unfairly punished over a misunderstanding.  A culture where unsubstantiated claims on the internet can lead to a loss of livelihood is akin to mob rule. Joseph irresponsibly used his platform to intimidate and race-bait.

We see Bannon’s arrest differently for two reasons:

  1. We have different views about what happened at the Capitol on January 6th.
  2. We have different views about the goals and importance of the January 6th congressional committee. 

These are interconnected, as our understanding of what happened on January 6th affects our perception of the House’s investigation into the event, which subsequently affects how we view Bannon’s refusal to testify before the committee.

Still confused about how the other side is seeing this? Check out our previous analyses on January 6th and the 2020 election.
