Some Democrat members of Congress have gone full conspiracy theory after the U.S. Capitol breach.
New York Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claims there are QAnon sympathizers and white supremacist members of Congress, 'who would create opportunities to allow me to be hurt, kidnapped, etc. and so I didn't even feel safe around other members of Congress.'
This is an incredibly damning allegation, one AOC offers with zero proof.
Conspiracy theories aren't rooted in proof. Conspiracy theories link events together, often unrelated, to create allegations some secret organization is pulling the strings behind the scenes to cause chaos or create a New World Order.
Democrats are suggesting the U.S. Capitol Police and some Republican Congressmen were working together to allow a mob to target members of Congress and Vice President Mike Pence.
Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez is essentially saying Republican members of Congress want her dead. WOW. This is pure conspiracy theory akin to QAnon. The Democratic party pushed the FBI to investigate QAnon one month ago saying they are dangerous.
Soon to be Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer wrote, "QAnon conspiracy theories have inspired acts of domestic extremism and violence, sought to undermine democratic institutions, and contributed to hatred in the United States and overseas."
If Democrats are so worried about the dangers of conspiracy theories, why are they spreading their own?
It wasn't just AOC. House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn told CBS News, "I do believe that something was going on. They knew where to go. I've been told … by some other Congresspeople that their staff are saying that they saw people being allowed into the building through side doors. Who opened those side doors for these protesters, or I call them these mobsters, to come into the building, not through the main entrance where magnetometers are but through side doors. Yes, somebody on the inside of those buildings were complicit in this."
Clyburn, like AOC, offers zero proof, only hearsay from 'other Congresspeople.'
Rep. Pramila Jayapal said, 'there's no doubt in my mind that there were people inside the Capitol, inside law enforcement, perhaps even other members of the other side that may have been involved in this.'
She didn't offer proof either, only saying, 'there's no doubt in my mind.'
California Democrat Congressman Eric Swalwell said, 'we owe it to the American people to understand whether members of our own Houses were working with these protesters.' He, too, is making the same allegation all while he admitting he didn't have any proof to make such an allegation.
This from the Congressman who slept with a Chinese spy. Swalwell is somehow still on the House Intelligence Committee. He also has been hand-picked by Speaker Nancy Pelosi to be one of the impeachment managers during the upcoming Senate trial.
Democrats continue to lecture Americans on the dangers of conspiracies, yet are 'coordinated' in putting theirs out to the public as a means to indict the entire Republican party. Let this serve as a warning. If a political party attempts to tie members of Congress, without proof, to a coup attempt there is nothing they won't do to maintain their power.
