To the Editor:
A column headlined “Why is Left suddenly worried about the end of democracy?” by Victor Davis Hanson that was published in the Dec. 19 Daily Herald is packed with anti-Democratic Party rhetoric and theories, but the writer never mentions the real reason for the worry over our democracy: the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.
The Jan. 6 attack, riot, attempted coup, insurrection or whatever else you want to call it really happened, and it happened because former President Donald Trump didn’t accept the fact that he lost the 2020 election.
That’s what has some Americans worried. Our democracy doesn’t work if one candidate doesn’t accept the fact that he or she lost an election by millions of votes.
And Mr. Hanson knows that. He also knows the U.S. government should fully investigate the Jan. 6 attack like it did the 2012 Benghazi attacks. The government owes current and future Americans a thorough report on what happened and who was involved.
My question to Mr. Hanson is: Why is the Right not interested in learning the truth about the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol and not worried about the end of democracy?
