The Colorado Supreme Court's decision to ban the citizens of the state from voting for Donald Trump claims that he "engaged in insurrection on January 6, 2021" by telling his supporters to go "to the Capitol," "fight like hell," and go by "very different rules." However, the full context of Trump's words show that he told his supporters to go "to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard," "fight like hell" politically and verbally, and encourage Mike Pence and Congress to follow the "very different rules" that federal law specified for cases of potential election fraud. Major media outlets and Democrats have repeatedly twisted Trump's words out of context in this case and in several others, as documented at the links below.
