Prof. Christopher Parker joins KUOW for a discussion of the January 6th riot in Washington, DC and sentiments of the event in our area.

“People think those sorts of sentiments don’t reverberate here. That is not true...Most people, when they think of the state of Washington, they think of King County, and more specifically Seattle. Washington and Seattle are not what you think they are. What we are seeing right now, what happened with the insurrection, and the perpetuation of the big lie, that is not confined to Washington DC, to Georgia, to Florida. We have those pockets right here in Washington state, and dare I say Seattle.”
