According to the definition provided by Google of what an "insurrection" is, was Jan 6th the only insurrection that's happened in the recent past?

[b]The Jan 6th insurrection resulted in ONE death, and it was an unarmed white woman killed by a black cop.

Can you think of any other examples of insurrections that have happened where there were more than one death?

If so, why don't we hear more about them in the media? Shouldn't these other insurrectionists be hunted down and punished?[/b]

If you go by that definition, every riot is an insurrection.

Finally, someone gets it. There were over 500 insurrections that summer, and the left never batted an eye. They actually cheered on the insurrectionists.

Exactly.

TBF you are right.

It almost fails on the dictionary definition of insurrection because only a few people died.

It kind of fails on the definition of a coup because it was not organised.

Dictionaries need a new word class to describe when sub-fascist turd-burgers try to overthrow a government but do it so badly that no classical descriptions stick.

Were you at the Capitol that day? If not, where were you?

[@422868,Burnley123] I have been reading a lot of British based crime novels. It seems you guys have more situations to use the word piss than we do in the US.

That was the mildest 'insurrection' in the history of the world. They walked in single file, inside the red rope! Marxists draw more blood with pamphlets...I don't know if you are being sarcastic about 'the media'...they don't tell you anything they don't want you to hear.

Oh, yeah. That was total sarcasm.
