No, it wasn’t the riot on Capitol Hill or the attempt to violently overturn a presidential election.
Rather, Grenell claims the real victim was Trump’s Twitter account, which the former president was banned from using two days after a mob of his supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol.

“January 6th was a terrible day because it’s the day Big Tech and the media kicked President Trump off Twitter and silenced his voice,” Grenell said. “That was the day that was an attack on our democracy.” (Again, for the record, Twitter actually banned Trump’s account on Jan. 8.)
Grenell also claimed that the real enemies of democracy are people who oppose voter ID laws ― which Republican officials have primarily used to try and suppress Democratic voters, and which purport to address a “voter fraud” problem that in reality is vanishingly small.

It’s probably the only good thing that came out of that day. I hoped that faced with the lawless violence of their most extreme voters, that the GOP would follow John McCain’s example when voters wanted him to attack Obama as “an Arab.” They should say “this isn’t who we are” and remove such people from the party. Instead, they are siding with the terrorists.

They’ve primed the pump for the actual insurrection. Jan 6 was just a trial run for the real coup to come.
