News roundup: The six-month anniversary of the attack on the U.S. Capitol, taking a stand, and guns

In the news today: Republicans have settled on a message of fear via racist dog whistles, along with Donald Trump’s Big Lie, heading into the 2022 midterms. It’s been six months since the attack on the U.S. Capitol that came about because of that lie, and Republicans are fully embracing it—along with the attack itself. Nikole Hannah-Jones tells UNC to pound sand. Sadly, the Fourth of July weekend was a bloody one.
