Victoria Spartz dares speak up about Democrat overkill on January 6

Rep. Victoria Spartz (R-IN) is one of only a few Republicans in Congress who have had the courage to speak out about the Democrats' overblown rhetoric around the events of January 6, 2021.

On Thursday, Spartz said on the House floor that most of those who participated in the Capitol breach were not insurrectionists, criticizing Democrats for "intimidation tactics" aimed at discouraging conservatives from speaking out about elections and other concerns.

"We cannot paint with a broad brush and call everyone who came to D.C. on January 6, 2021 an insurrectionist," Spartz said. "Many people came to peacefully express dissatisfaction with a government that truly became corrupt and tyrannical. These intimidation techniques are very dangerous."


The subject of government tyranny is likely a much more important topic for Spartz, who emigrated to the U.S. from Ukraine, which was the U.S.S.R. at the time of her birth, in 2000 after meeting her husband Jason, than it is for other members of Congress, who have never really been on the receiving end of it.

That may not be true for much longer, though, given the way both parties have taken to ruling by executive order and letting the president get away with having a lot more power than he should.

After all, if the president is making most of the tough decisions, members of Congress don't have to stand up for their principles and risk their viewpoints being unpopular and costing them their seats, right?

Spartz is not backing down, however.

"If the people that showed up there wanted to do [an insurrection], they would have succeeded," she said. "They were mad because we are not governing for the people."

She's getting out

Unfortunately, this voice of reason will be leaving Congress after 2024. Spartz announced in February that she would retire from Congress and would not run for Senate in Indiana, as she had previously considered.

It's sad for the people, but no one can blame Spartz for getting out of Washington.

Most people with virtue usually do, which makes one wonder about politicians who have spent most of their lives in politics, as President Joe Biden has.

Even when he's lost most of his faculties, Biden won't loosen his grip on power, which is exactly the fate people of conviction like Spartz want to avoid.

Let's hope she can find some part of the world where freedom still lives to go and enjoy her retirement.
