Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, January 15, 2021

The officers at the West Terrace eventually pushed people away from the doors. It was only then that Fanone saw the immense, volatile crowd stretched out in front of him and realized what police were up against. "We weren't battling 50 or 60 rioters in this tunnel," he said in the first public account from D.C. police officers who fought to protect the Capitol during last week's siege. "We were battling 15,000 people. It looked like a medieval battle scene."

Lauren Boebert and the other criminal shills should be forced to transcribe this story. Twice. Then scrub the Capitol Steps with a toothbrush. Twice. Only then can they be recalled from office and made to crawl on their bellies back to the viper dens from which they emerged.

These are some brave, duty-bound officers. I'm certain that Diamond Joe, once in office, will express the gratitude and admiration of the nation. Well done all...

Word 'round the campfire is, there are a significant amount of white supremacists in police uniforms.

I want to see which Republican Representatives vote against some of these people getting the Congressional Medal of Honor.

Have you seen the videoed description of what happened to a DC cop and a Capitol Police officer?

The DC cop said insurrectionists were beating him, grabbed his badge and baton and were trying to grab his gun while chanting "shoot him with his own gun!!" Only when he screamed "I HAVE KIDS!" did anyone come to his aid. Some were saying "we support Blue Live Matter. How can you not help us?"

The Capitol Policeman said he was being beaten mercilessly with his own baton until other cops came to his aid.

"General Russel Honore"

Uh oh! There's a new Sheriff in town! I expect he will be determined to find and prosecute everyone that decided they had a right to an insurrection against our democracy at our Capital.
I hope he roots out every single one of them and prosecutes them to the max.
The very idea of their insurrection, to overturn a legitimate election is disgusting and reprehensible to all Americans that actually believe in democracy.

Interview with the cop who was crushed in the door:

I truly can't think of a better way to spend a Friday night than watch the interview of Officer Daniel Hodges.

Like, 10 times.

Yep. They also wear face paint and a buffalo skin headdress. Some wear uniforms of the armed forces. Cowboy up, lay some pipe down! It's take a Village.
