I felt compelled to write today after seeing a parade of supposedly elected officials disgrace themselves and the nation on television, lying yet again about the armed insurrection of January 6 and who bears responsibility for it.
As they have so often in the past, the scurrilous and scuttling band of insurrectionists and traitors calling themselves the GOP paraded to the microphones to trumpet and bray about who was really behind the assault on the Capitol Building – and this time it’s not Hillary Clinton and Benghazi, it’s Nancy Pelosi.
For in the delusional schizophrenia currently embraced by the GOP, it was the person the mob came to haul out of office and hang who was responsible for the breach on Democracy, not the man who stood before the cameras spurring the mob on, saying it was time to “fight light hell” and that he would be marching with them.
“The American people deserve to know the truth. That Nancy Pelosi bears responsibility, as speaker of the House, for the tragedy that occurred on Jan. 6,” said House GOP conference chair Elise Stefanik, who must be on some pretty powerful tranquilizers if she can get through those words without having her head explode.
That she said this as a powerful lineup of Capitol police officers gave testimony about the events of that day, the enemies they faced, and who those enemies ACTUALLY WERE (some carried badges) made it an even more stark reminder of the Great Lie the propagandists are trying to push down the throats of the American People.
It remains to be seen if the people are going to buy it. So far, it appears a good many are.
