Ashli Babbitt was a terrorist. She invaded the Capitol on January 6 with thousands of other terrorists in an attempt to overturn a democratically-held election and install an unelected dictator. They were trying to prevent Congress from certifying the election, a process mandated by the United States Constitution. Ashli Babbitt was an Air Force veteran…and a terrorist.
Ashli Babbitt was the worst kind of terrorist because she had previously taken an oath to protect her country.
When Babbitt was shot, she was wearing a Trump flag as a cape inside the Capitol. She was with a crowd of fellow Trump terrorists smashing glass on the doors that led into the lobby of the Speaker of the House of Representatives. Ashli Babbitt was shot and killed by a Capitol Police officer because Ashli Babbitt was a terrorist committing a terrorist attack against the country she swore to serve and protect. She is a traitor and a terrorist.
Since January 6, the day MAGA terrorists attacked our nation, Qanon, Republicans, and Donald Trump have been portraying Ashli Babbitt as a hero and the police officer who shot her as a villain who committed murder.
Before the officer revealed himself, Trump supporters had been spreading his name across the internet, mostly on hate sites. The intention here is to provide enough information so one of them can kill him.
Maria Bartiromo, a Fox News goon, described Babbitt as a “wonderful young woman who went to a peaceful protest.” Donald Trump described her in a similar manner and said, “I will tell you they know who shot Ashley Babbitt, they’re protecting that person.” Uh, yeah. The government was and still is protecting that person because Donald Trump and his followers have been vilifying him and they have a history of terrorist attacks.
And yes, the government knew who shot her and they cleared the officer of any wrongdoing and justified his actions.
Donald Trump is attacking an officer of a government agency for killing a person trying to hurt members of Congress, while he himself is still protected by officers of a government agency.
Trump claimed the person responsible for shooting Babbitt was sent by a high-level Democratic operative. Trump said, “I’ve heard also that it was the head of security for a certain high official, a Democrat, and we’ll see because it’s going to come out. It’s going to come out.” Bartiromo implied the operative was sent by Senator Majority Leader Chuck Schumer. Maybe if there was some sort of investigation led by Congress, then we could discover more information.
Actually, we know who shot Ashli Babbitt while defending the Capitol. Though he has revealed himself, I’m not going to repeat his name and help MAGAt terrorists.
The office explained he was protecting the Capitol, members of Congress, fellow officers, and himself. Babbitt and the other terrorists had the officers cornered where they could not retreat. Babbitt and her fellow MAGAt goons were warned repeatedly to stop. Since then, the officer has been receiving death threats.
Republicans in Congress have been trying to paint the terrorist attack as a peaceful protest or just regular daily tourism. They voted against investigating the attack. Republicans voted against awarding medals to the Capitol Police who worked to save their lives.
So, when I hear Republicans bash President Biden over the deaths of Americans in Afghanistan, I’m not buying their sincerity. I don’t want to hear the people who refused to give medals to Capitol Police officers bash the president for looking at his watch during a ceremony for fallen Marines. Why, if Donald Trump could tell time, you’d never catch him looking at his watch during these kinds of ceremonies. Though there was that time Trump didn’t to go to a ceremony because it was raining and he would get his hair wet.
Republicans have spent the past eight months championing terrorists. They don’t get to pretend they hate terrorists now. Fake indignation is all the GOP has left.
If you hate the people who killed 13 Americans in Kabul last week, then you should equally hate Ashli Babbitt.
Because Ashli Babbitt was a terrorist.
