Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lincoln's Capitol: Insurrection in America I found this to be an excuse to spread Professor Donoghue's blatant bias. I am used to watching bias, but this piece presented present day "facts" with video clips that absolutely misrepresented the close to 1 million people that were in Washington DC on January 6th as bigots, racists and all vile and violent people. I was there ..and I would never defend any of those that breeched the capitol, however, the close to 1 million vs perhaps the thousand people who breeched the are painted with a broad brush. Compare that to the way he presents BLM and those protests, as thought they were all peaceful, when we know we had cities burning and dead law enforcement officers. No mention that the founders of BLM, the organization are Marxist trained. The professor does not mention, that if you went to the BLM site, ( I did ), that when you pressed the donate button you were brought to the Democrats campaign pages. His opinions, not fact, about the the election and fraud, are very short sighted and part of the narrative being put out in the media. There is more than enough evidence to at least demand a forensic audit, as we are now seeing in Arizona. For this professor to have the conclusions he has, shows that he is not a man of integrity and search for the truth. He never mentions that the only person killed was an unarmed woman, killed by an officer that we still are not suppose to know the his name. Why not? I have many questions, not the least are what was the FBI involvement, why didn't they secure with National Guard Troops when they were requested. Why did the person who asked for those troops leave his position the next day. Why can't we see the thousands of hours of videos? This was pure propoganda, and Professor Donoghue did a terrible job of even trying to hide it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Factual but incomplete as history If the intent was to present an overview of US insurrections, it might have included a lot more examples: Whiskey rebellion, Nat Turner, John Brown, Wilmington insurrection, Ammon Bundy would all have been worth some discussion. I thought the characterization of insurrections as either progressive or reactionary is perhaps a bit simplistic.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A lot of political garbage Unlike most videos on this platform this was blatant political bias and wasn't very informative. It was just made to shed a bad light on a protest and to enflame an already tense nation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting history lesson This was a short essay on insurrection in the United States of America. Whether you think that the storming of the Capital building on January 6, 2021 was just a riot or an insurrection, does not matter. This occurrence will never be forgotten in American history. I did not find this piece hateful as described by another reviewer. I did think it was interesting and informative. Thank you for this professor’s thoughts on insurrection.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mainly an opinion piece. It's a stretch to compare the insurrection of the Civil War with the capital riot. Political outrage is common and dies not threaten democracy. The capital riot did not elicit sympathy for the rioters or their cause. The was not even mentioned. To compare the riots to the Civil War is ridiculous.
