In the first Radio Rothbard of 2022, Ryan McMaken and Tho Bishop discuss the regime's portrayal of the one-year anniversary of January 6.

While most Americans may care more about kitchen table issues than Washington's hysterics, already we have seen the state use last year's riot as an excuse to expand the prosecution of political minorities.

Is this a moment the American right will learn from, or will history once again be written by progressives?
