This is a quick update to the diary I wrote previously about GOP effectively becoming a “Terrorist Organization” that has directly inspired terrorist attacks on the FBI which occurred this week.
Shifting their strategy slightly the House GOP continues attacking the FBI in the wake of the search warrant issued against Mar A Lago, but they have instead shifted their criticism away from the Rank and File to being largely about the gun attack against the Congressional Baseball Game from 5 years ago — the one time they can find that an attack happened against the GOP.
They criticize the “7th Floor” of the FBI, arguing that they have “become politicized” connecting the investigation of that shooting to Andrew McCabe who was acting FBI Director at the time and saying that they determined that it was “Suicide by Cop” rather than a “Domestic Terrorist Event.” By the way, Andrew McCabe is a Republican.
They don't talk about all the other attacks against Democrats and the Left, including Charlottesville, the assault on the Tree of Life Synagogue that killed 11 people or the shooting at the Walmart in El Paso that killed 23 people, or the shooting in Buffalo which killed that killed 10 people — all of which were inspired by right-wing “Replacement" theory — or (other than a quick recitation of "thoughts and prayers”) the attack this week in Cincinnati against the FBI.
Authorities are calling Saturday's mass shooting in Buffalo, N.Y., a racially motivated attack. The suspect allegedly wrote a 180-page document filled with hateful rants about race and ties to the "great replacement." Here's what you need to know about this particular conspiracy theory.
What is the "great replacement"?
In short, the "great replacement" is a conspiracy theory that states that nonwhite individuals are being brought into the United States and other Western countries to "replace" white voters to achieve a political agenda. It is often touted by anti-immigration groups, white supremacists and others, according to the National Immigration Forum.
White supremacists argue that the influx of immigrants, people of color more specifically, will lead to the extinction of the white race.
And they don't want to investigate and talk about how all of this and Donald Trump are connected to the tens of thousands of people who attacked the Capitol on January 6, 2021.
Nope, they don't talk about any of that, they have to dig back five years to talk about the baseball field and they pledge that if the GOP takes the House they will “vigorously investigate” what happened with Hillary Clinton's investigation (which has already been investigated by the Inspector General), the Russia investigation (which is already being investigated by John Durham), they want to investigate “Antifa”, the BLM riots from two years ago and the Baseball shooting.
Because that's what they care about.
Great. Thanks for the warning.
Everyone please VOTE Accordingly this November.
