Lotsa Luck With Your Own Security, GOP

The Stupid Coup

Republicans are dopey traitors:

House Republicans, conducting their own investigation of the Jan. 6 insurrection, plan to accuse the Capitol security apparatus of “negligence at the highest levels,” Rep. Jim Banks (R-Ind.) tells Axios.

I mean, I wouldn’t go out of my way to protect these traitors that are trying to deflect blame for the Jan. 6 Stupid Coup onto me.

Why it matters: By placing blame on the building’s top security officials, this shadow investigation gives the GOP an alternative frame for discussing the 2021 Capitol assault.

Banks told us the GOP investigators — who consist of exiles denied seats on the formal Jan. 6 committee, controlled by Democratic leaders — have “absolutely” uncovered new information.

  • The group plans to issue a report, including legislative recommendations, before this fall’s midterms.

Reality check: The strength of security surrounding the Capitol building had been enough to protect it from assault since the British burned it in 1814.

  • That period encompassed the Civil War, the civil rights and Vietnam protests, as well as the disputed 2000 presidential election.
  • The only time it was breached, and the Confederate flag carried through its corridors, was after President Trump encouraged a crowd on the Ellipse to march on the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.

But you know, that insurrection was just legitimate political discourse.

    Anything to distract from the #BidenBoom job growth, and Democrats leading or tied in 4 of the last 5 generic ballot midterm polls. Republicans stand for nothing but fear, hate, doom, gloom, negativity, culture war division, book banning, forced birth, antivaxxing, a War on Teachers, anti-CRT race baiting, QAnon, climate disaster, whining about woke this and woke that, and flipping out over Dr. Suess, Big Bird, M&Ms, and Minnie Mouse.

    Old news. It’s already come out that TFG passed orders – or suggestions? – to his hand picked superior officers over DC security forces to not come to the aid of the DC police in their efforts to maintain control during the riots.
