As I have said in previous posts, Rachel Compost-Duffy is perhaps the dumbest pundit on the Fox News channel, which she confirms each and every time she opens her mouth. She knows nothing about politics. The only reason the network has her on at all is because her husband is a former senator ( who is just as unintelligent as she is ) and she’s not embarrassed that she is out of touch and ignorant. She’s willing to say anything, no matter how absurd it is, as long it confirms the caricature that conservatives have of the Democratic party in general – that they are socialists, communists, unpatriotic, and anti-American. In short, Republicans accuse them of everything that is true about themselves. One has only to look to the Capitol riot and the Republican party’s involvement and open support of it.
George Bush’s 9/11 anniversary speech triggered Duffy because he mentioned that domestic terrorism was as just as much a threat to America as foreign terrorism. The fact that she’s a dimwit, she felt compelled to defend the insurrectionists as patriots because they had flags and were pissed about the election result. On the other hand, Islamic terrorists just want to kill Americans because they hate America and Western Civilization.
“And I think motivations matter,” she said. “The Islamic terrorists want to kill Americans. They hate America. They have lots of reasons for that.
“Regardless of what you think about what happened on January 06, the people there went in with the flags. They were not America haters. They were people who were angry and expressing their anger in a very bad way about an election result. Those are not equivalent things.”
The purpose of the siege of the Capitol was to kill Americans – Mike Pence, for instance. Conservatives – in particular, the most extreme Trump supporters – hate America and want to kill leftists. Their intention was not only to kill Mike Pence – they were ready to hang him with a gallows – if he didn’t go along with Trump and his cronies and nullify state votes which Biden won. By their actions, they were demonstrating their hatred for democracy and the Constitution in their efforts to nullify a democratic election by attempting to steal it through false claims of fraud. They are the very definition of “America haters.” They hate democracy so much they would rather have their own dictator.
Fanatical members in the cult of Trump stormed the Washington Capitol hoping to overturn through violence a democratic election because their chosen dictator failed to win. They were pissed to no end. They believed Trump’s lies and those of his cronies in Congress and the media, that feeble, sleepy Joe Biden was too weak to do it himself, so he had the ghost of Hugo Chavez, Dominion, and George Soros do his dirty work. That’s what happened. It wasn’t the feds who instigated the whole thing, who set up the innocent Trump supporters into committing an insurrection. It was Trump, his cronies in Congress and the media who amplified the Big Lie that the election was stolen by the Democrats, and all of the other lies.
But, according to conservative narrative, right after it happened, it was Antifa disguised as Trump supporters. Then when that narrative fell apart, it was the FBI that was really behind it all, the deep state. They forced all of those innocent and unsuspecting Trump supporters to believe the lies of election fraud. They were just like rats being lured into unsuspecting traps set by the feds. Trump, his cronies in Congress and media had nothing at all to do with it. The Big Lie in no way compelled them to march to the Capitol to do what they did. It was all of those FBI informants whispering “sedition” and “insurrection” into their innocent little ears.
This is the new lie, and they have no intention of bearing any responsibility for it whatsoever. They will forever blame it on the Democrats, the deep state, the FBI, and anyone but themselves.
