Is there a single Democrat or left-wing institutional entity (the media, for instance) that doesn’t gaslight the country 24/7/365?
Because we haven’t found one.
Democrats and their sycophantic enablers in the ‘mainstream media’ have gone out of their way to politicize and flat-out lie about what happened Jan. 6 at the U.S. Capitol Building.
It’s been called “sedition.” The people who took part in the incursion are “insurrectionists.” President Trump “incited” the whole thing.
None of that is true. As we are learning, it was really just another riot of the sort we’ve seen – and the Democrat/Media Complex has justified – for several months now. The only difference is the address.
And speaking of blowing things out of proportion, the Congressional Gaslighter-in-Chief Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took to her social media account (of course) to claim she was in fear for her life – oh, and to accuse Capitol Police of a ‘conspiracy’ to ensure she was taken away by the barbarian horde.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) claimed during an Instagram Live video this week that she had a close encounter with death during the riot last week at the U.S. Capitol Building, but she declined to give any details on the alleged incident due to what she described as “security concerns.”
“As for myself, I had a pretty traumatizing event happen to me and I do not know if I can even disclose the full details of that event due to security concerns, but I can tell you that I had a very close encounter where I thought I was going to die and you have all of those thoughts where, you know, at the end of your life, and all of these thoughts come rushing to you, and that’s what happened to a lot of us on Wednesday,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
“…I did not think, I did not know if I was going to make it to the end of that day alive, and not just in a general sense, but also in a very, very specific sense and, you know, I think it’s an opportunity for a lot of us to talk about trauma as well.”
Yes, well, countless number of Americans who were actually terrorized and traumatized over the past year by Antifa anarchists and BLM thugs probably aren’t connecting with Little Miss Thang from the Bronx on this one.
Nevertheless…she went on to claim, baselessly from what we can tell, that something “was wrong from the inside” and that there were “acts of betrayal” by police she says led to her not being certain whether officers were “there to help you or to harm you.”
“It was an extremely traumatizing event, and it is not an exaggeration to say that many, many members of the House were nearly assassinated,” she claimed. “It’s just not an exaggeration to say that at all. We were very lucky that things happened within certain minutes that allowed members to escape the House floor unharmed. But, many of us nearly and narrowly escaped death and it’s also extremely traumatizing. And what was also traumatizing was how unsettling that day was because there was a sense that something was wrong, and obviously with the violence, but there was a sense that something was wrong from the inside.”
“As we saw, there were members of Capitol Police who were quite heroic, you know, we have many officers, and, you know, there were also black and brown officers that were confronting white supremacists, and putting themselves, not just to protect members, but they put themselves in harms way on the front line, facing the racist violence of white supremacists ordered by Donald Trump to attack the Capitol,” she said. “And so there were those acts of heroism, but, next to that, there was also acts of betrayal. And, to run, in the Capitol, in our nation’s capital, and not know if an officer is there to help you or to harm you is also quite traumatizing.”
Is it any wonder tens of millions of Americans are at each other’s throats, given this kind of conspiratorial lunacy?
