Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, May 13, 2021

Multiple Republican members of Congress on Wednesday offered a false retelling of the devastating events that occurred during the Capitol riot, with one calling the entire event a "bold faced lie" that more closely resembled a "normal tourist visit" than a deadly attack.

Good thing video evidence showing the exact opposite doesn't exist... that would be awkward.

The Big Lie lives on in the GQP.

Anyone with 1 functioning brain cell would be mortified. These compulsive liars are like the four year old with a cookie in his hand when asked if they took a cookie say no.

"So with a show of hands, how many folk here assault and/or kill cops on a tourist visit?'

Does this include Spring Break 1995 or not?

I wonder if Rep. Andrew Clyde (R-GA) is one of those people who claims slavery wasn't bad because the slaves were treated so well. Seems likely.

OMG, this guy is an arrogant -------:

This morning @LACaldwellDC @DaniellaMicaela gave Rep Andrew Clyde a chance to explain his comments yesterday that Jan 6 looked like a "normal tourist visit."

Take a listen

FYI:

As a reminder: the Georgia Republican legislator calling Jan. 6 a "normal tourist visit" to the capitol owns a castle-shaped gun store --

Kind of says it all.

Hmmm, there might be another important reason why some of these politicians are downplaying the insurrection:

Cheney says a focused Jan 6 commission threatens Republicans "who may have been playing a role they should not have been playing" "

Active-Duty Marine Major Arrested After Allegedly Pushing Police Officer in Capitol Riot
www.military.com

...A 40-year-old active-duty Marine Corps officer was arrested Thursday after federal agents said he violently broke into the U.S. Capitol during the Jan. 6 riot, pushing through a line of police officers and positioning himself inside a doorway to pull others into the building with him.

Maj. Christopher Warnagiris, 40, of Woodbridge, Virginia, has been charged with assaulting, resisting or impeding police officers; obstruction of law enforcement during civil disorder; and obstruction of justice, among other charges. His arrest was announced Thursday by the Justice Department.

Maj. J. A. Hernandez, a Marine spokesman at the Pentagon, confirmed Warnagiris is on active duty. His career details were not immediately made available....


I guess that also might occur during a normal tourist visit to the capitol....

There are too many Foxes (the news type) in the hen House now. They need to be removed at the polls.

"Cheney says a focused Jan 6 commission threatens Republicans "who may have been playing a role they should not have been playing"

But she is still a Republican. She is still a member of the criminal cabal which is slowly, methodically destroying this country.
