Comparing this to the “Middle East” perpetuates the myth that the people who stormed the Capitol aren’t extreme representatives of angry segments of US society. Also present was a newly-elected West Virginia state Republican official who live-streamed himself entering the Capitol with the mob and has since resigned after being arrested.
