Charlie Kirk, the founder of the conservative student group Turning Point USA, has rejected the argument that everyone who entered the Capital last week was an insurrectionist, saying that many of those taking part were merely showing "bad judgment."

A video of Kirk, a Newsweek columnist, discussing the deadly event in which far-right extremists and QAnon conspiracy theorists stormed Congress, was shared on Twitter where it went viral with over 500,000 views at the time of writing.

The clip, shared by Media Matters news director John Whitehouse, juxtaposes Kirk speaking on The Charlie Kirk Show on Monday with separate footage of protesters violently beating a Capitol police officer.
