Republican Congressman insults injured Jan 6 police hero to his face



/ Every new week seems to bring a new low from House Republicans, but House Democrats ’efforts to honor the life-threatening Capitol Police to keep our democracy safe have resulted in amazing brutality and humiliation from the extremist Trumper faction.

With their guilty consciences on the show, 21 House Republicans voted against awarding the Gold Medal to law enforcement officials who responded to the riots driven by Trump and his allies in Congress in their lies about the 2020 election.

Hatred and ridicule are obvious from the get-go; Rep. Brutally resigned. Scott Perry (R-PA) votes to commemorate 140 Capitol Police injured in attack he assisted evoke as “all politics, all rubbish.”

Add your name to ask Congress to raise the minimum wage to $ 15 per hour!

But Georgia Rep. Andrew Clyde really took it to the next level, allegedly respecting one of Capitol Hill’s defenders with his face in a jaw -dropping show of Republican calm.

Officer Michael Fanone was brutally beaten and unaware of Trump’s rabid rioters on Jan. 6, suffering a heart attack and concussion from his injury. He now suffers from a traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress disorder from his treatment at the hands of the Trumpers who are celebrated as “peaceful patriots” and “normal tourists” by insurrectionist Paul Gosar (R-AZ ).

When Officer Fanone ran over Rep. Clyde in the Capitol building, Clyde refused to shake his hand further.

The hallmark of Trumpism as a political philosophy is the immediate abandonment of any principle, loyalty, or friendship the minute it is no longer politically comfortable. That appears to have been adopted by his followers, because the former fierce defender of police officers has now publicly insulted them after police were forced to turn their batons at Trump’s own supporters.

As offensive to Trumper’s mind is any recognition of any of the surprisingly violent consequences of their misconduct; that is why they are crying crocodile tears about how respect for the Capitol Police is “politicized” by the Democrats and any discussion of violence on Jan. 6 at all is completely without notice to those who have become increasingly attractive. attracted member of the Trump wing.

We’re locked into a whole-hearted battle to maintain the truth of what happened on Jan. 6-and if this is how Republicans behave behind the scenes, it’s clear we’re not fighting enough.
