    According to Democrats 6th Jan. was an "insurrection." According to Republicans it was a "riot." Antifa and BLM: According to Democrats these were "peaceful protests" with buildings on fire, participants attacking Federal Buildings, etc. According to Republicans it was people "rioting."

    In South Africa the recent riots were first called "ethnic mobilization" by the president. Then he corrected himself, referring to it as "a failed insurrection." Then his Defense Minister called it a "counter revolution." It's all to do with semantics and the eye of the beholder.

    Whoever originated this thought of comparing these was probably attempting to minimize the Capitol Riot.

    No, they are trying to maximize it by comparison instead of contrast.

    They are saying "This was sooooo bad, it was like 9/11".

    Minimize or maximize. True, it could very well be for the opposite effect for shock value in headlines. It's still apples and oranges.
