This will not go down well in Wingnuttia. I daresay Paul Gosar has just interrupted his lunch of swallowing frogs whole and has gone to call Ashli Babbitt’s mother and inform her of this set back. As you may recall, Gosar had Babbitt’s mother speak at Trump’s Arizona rally, and Trump has himself spoken in glowing terms of what a “wonderful woman” and “patriot” Babbitt was.
Let’s take a little look see, shall we, at this heroine.
The MAGAs post a lot of Ashli Babbitt stuff. Funny, they never post things like this though. pic.twitter.com/x0wEtUbfzT

Here’s her mother on the phone at a rally, ginning up the crowd. Go to 2:08 and hear how Ashli was having such a great time with her life, breaking and entering government property and those “sons of bitches” did her in. Imagine that, if a cop tells you to stop advancing in a mob scene and you ignore him/her, you’ll get shot. Have you ever heard of such a thing?
Are you getting a deja vu? Maybe you’re thinking of this.
Ashli Babbitt is to MAGA what Horst Wessel was to the Nazis. Joseph Goebbels decided that Wessel could be of value to the cause as a martyr, so after the brownshirt was murdered by communists in a Berlin ghetto, he became far larger in death than he ever was in life. A song was written about him and it was played at Nazi rallies along with Deutschland Uber Alles.
I’m surprised Kid Rock hasn’t already penned some lyrics and a tune for Ashli Babbitt. But be patient, it may yet occur.
Here’s the simple wrap up of this matter from the Capitol Police, but I’m sure the matter is far from wrapped up propaganda wise. Unless I miss my guess, this is going to be a source of righteous indignation for some time to come.
The officer, whose name has not been released, opened fire on Babbitt as she and a mob of other Trump supporters tried to forcefully enter the Capitol.
Video of the shooting showed Babbitt in front of a crowd of rioters trying to get through a door leading to where members of Congress were being evacuated on the House side of the building.
The Justice Department announced in April that no charges were being brought against the officer. The exoneration by the Capitol Police wraps up the last remaining investigation into the incident.
A memo from the commander of the Capitol Police’s Office of Personal Responsibility says “no further action will be taken in this matter” after the officer was exonerated for use of force.
Let’s see what Trump says about this at his MAGA Woodstock rally in the cow pasture in Alabama tonight. Last I knew, Hurricane Fred hadn’t turned it into a mosh pit so I guess it’s still happening. And Mo Brooks will assuredly be there. Maybe he’ll tell everybody what a great guy the North Carolina truck bomber was, while Trump crows about Babbitt. Stay tuned.
