On September 11, 2001, passengers on Flight 93 sacrificed their lives to prevent the plane overtaken by terrorists from flying into our nation’s capitol building. On January, 6, 2021, the President (sic) of the United States of America sent terrorists to that same capitol building to stage an insurrection, attempt a coup, and commit sedition.
Immediately after photos were posted online of the MAGA mob breaking into the capitol, vandalizing offices, breaking windows, threatening lives, and leaving pipe bombs, the Trump cult claimed the terrorists were Antifa. Of course, this was wrong and immediately debunked.
The crowd went straight from a Trump rally to the capitol building. Donald Trump did NOT speak at an Antifa rally.
Whataboutism doesn’t justify and excuse your horrible actions. Even if Antifa burned down the capitol building last year, it wouldn’t justify what the Trump mob did yesterday.
And the sycophants online, they couldn’t keep their bullshit straight. One minute, they were calling the goons Antifa, the next minute, they were calling them patriots. I saw one conservative colleague call them Antifa then turn around and demand the same mourning that George Floyd received be given to Ashli Babbitt, the MAGAt shot and killed yesterday by Capitol Police while she was breaking through a door committing a terrorist act. My question to him is: Why should we mourn her if she was Antifa? Hmm?
Another conservative cartoonist, drew a cartoon blaming Proud Boys, the KKK, and…wait for it…Antifa. Never mind that Antifa isn’t really an organization or the fact they were not present yesterday during the storming of the capitol. But, Antifa was present during the 1940s when they stomped out fascism in Europe and Asia.
Ben Garrison, a propagandist and member of the Trump cult complained today that “Twitter ‘sucked’ off 500 of his followers.” That doesn’t have anything to do with this or Antifa but I just wanted to point out the new service Twitter is offering.
Antifa didn’t kill anyone last year. Yesterday, The MAGA mob sent directly by Donald Trump was responsible for four deaths. Yesterday, the Trump mob committed sedition because democracy didn’t give them what they want, a fascist dictator. Yesterday, the Trump mob tried to install a leader with a bloody coup. They brought pipe bombs and Molotov cocktails.
The people who attacked the capitol yesterday were not Antifa, protesters, or patriots. They were a mob, goons, traitors, and terrorists. They attacked our country. They attacked America. I get that MAGAts are tribal and feel they have to support members of their tribe when they commit bad acts, even terrorism, but supporting and celebrating these terrorists is un-American.
Ashli Babbit was an Air Force veteran who had served four tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan. Yesterday, she violated her military oath of defending our nation from all threats, foreign and domestic, by becoming a domestic threat. Ashli betrayed her oath, became a MAGAt terrorist, and attacked the United States of America, the nation she took an oath to defend and protect. She retweeted conspiracy theories from Trump and attorney Lin Wood. Her death leaves blood on their hands. She didn’t die defending democracy…she died assaulting it.
Here’s a useful tip to remember: Patriots don’t attack their country or defend and support terrorists who do.
By the way, this cartoon was drawn by Antifa.
