The disinformation factory is working round the clock, but one of Marjorie Taylor Greene’s cohorts just threw a sabot in the works. Greene has been busy spinning the fable, along with Josh Hawley, Tucker Carlson and others, that the Capitol insurrection was not really an armed insurrection, nor was it violent and most of all, where did anybody get the silly notion that it was perpetrated by Trump supporters, I mean really? Unfortunately, this skein of yarn is becoming very tangled, very fast. Newsweek:

Anthony Aguero, a conservative videographer and documented ally of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, was present during the U.S. Capitol attack on January 6 and proudly credited Donald Trump‘s supporters with initiating the violent uprising. […]

“I stand with people like Marjorie Taylor Greene, proudly,” said Aguero, before going on to contradict the congresswoman’s false claim that Antifa was behind the Capitol insurrection, rather than Trump’s supporters.

“Admit it, we were all there. It was not Antifa, and it was not BLM. It was Trump supporters that did that yesterday,” Aguero continued. “I’m the first to admit it, being one myself. I’d be a liar…I would be lying to you guys if I told you that it was Antifa. I would be lying to you guys if I told you that it was BLM, that it wasn’t Trumpers, that it wasn’t Republicans that were out here. I would be lying to you.”

Then of course, you already know how Tucker Carlson is spinning this. But if you really want to become livid, take a look at Josh Hawley’s blatant lies.

What all of these characters, Greene, Carlson, and Hawley have in common is putting blatant self-interest, tribal interest and profit above all else. The truth is just a bystander in their rampage. They don’t care about it at all. Trample the truth underfoot, along with democracy, and that’s just fine with these folks.

  1. The liars of the GOP and rightwing media are fascists, it’s that simple. Democracy, for them, ended the day a black man was elected president. What we’re enduring now is the continued backlash from that event.

  2. A Meidas Touch ad is not an evidentiary exhibit. I admire some of their ads, but this ad is based on a bad faith premise. At the time Hawley walked past in that now iconic raised fist photo, people who would soon be rioters were belligerently noisy but still peaceful, right? The ad juxtapositions Hawley’s words with photos of rioters breaking into the capitol as if Hawley was calling the act of breaking in “peaceful.” What else did Hawley say? Did he acknowledge they became violent later, after he had already entered the building?
