Fox anchor Bret Baier raised eyebrows on Wednesday during an appearance on ‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’ during which he claimed that that the January 6th Capitol riot was a ‘dark day’ for the US.

Baier went on to compare the events of January 6th to those of 1876.

As The Hill reports:

Baier appeared on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” on Wednesday to promote his new book on former President Ulysses S. Grant, which opens with the Jan. 6 riot in 2021.

“And in 1876, which was really the climax of this book, Grant as president makes a grand bargain and holds the country together as an election is contested. Louisiana, Florida, South Carolina refuse to move electors up, so he does this grand bargain with Republicans and Democrats to hold everything together.”

Baier likened that post-Civil War crisis in American electoral politics to the 2020 presidential election, which he said was “another election where there were people very upset about it.”

“And that moment, that chaos, that dark day up in Washington is similar to what we saw in 1876,” Baier said.

The Capitol attack instigated former President Trump’s second impeachment trial which resulted in a second acquittal.

And though the insurrection was engineered by old Nanc, there are still patriots in jail who were framed. And Antifa, BLM and the rest of the Soro’s brownshits wald free! The FBI and DOJ aren’t even looking for or tracking them. And USA citizens must be vaccinated while the illegal aliens are let in without a blink by this lousy dimwit nitwit administration.

Are we ready for a war against these criminal usurpers yet? It’s patriots against the lemmings of the dimwits. Or as Cicero talked of traitors, OUR ENEMY WITHIN. The very same type of criminals who took Rome down centuries ago and brought about the DARK AGES!

We’ve lost one potent ‘weapon’ that could weaken or even destroy our enemies: The Media. A Free Press is a powerful resource for Americans to keep abreast of our government’s activities, while exposing corruption, and identifying tyrants. We’re also a divided nation–a known ploy of Marxists to create dissent between cultural elements. The 2nd Amendment was ratified as the last resort for American citizens to remove government officials–by force, if necessary–who threaten our rights and freedoms. Numb Nuts is demonstrating his disdain for our Constitution, and it’s time to demonstrate our disdain for him.

Dan-you said it! Dark conspiracy, set up, with Capital police complicit. A few Trump nots! and yes a few naïve, jacked up by months of national lawlessness and stupidity Trump supporters. Only tragedy is Ashli Babbitt’s wrongful death. No Jan 6 Capital riot, just liberal media hierocracy. In 10 truthful words you said it all Dan. thank you

If stupidity are the grounds to be killed? Why are Democrats still throughout Washington? How does Maxine Waters get the popular vote? What angers me is why Republicans/Conservatives are allowing all this destruction to Our Country continue? This Country won’t survive to 2022 mid terms! Look at what Biden’s Administration has been able to accomplish in just 6 months. I can’t see how a war is not inevitable with someone!
