AOC Still Peddling Lies About Jan. 6: “Almost 10 dead”
Glenn Greenwald: “Claiming that there is ‘almost 10 dead’ from the 1/6 riot is deceitful in the extreme. Four people died on 1/6: all Trump supporters.”
There are some members of Congress who are more clueless and some who are more outrageous, but few are as clueless and outrageous as New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC).
She again demonstrated her knack for being both clueless and outrageous by tweeting misinformation about January 6th and falsely claiming that there were “almost 10 dead.”
Any member of Congress who helped plot a terrorist attack on our nation’s capitol must be expelled.
This was a terror attack. 138 injured, almost 10 dead. Those responsible remain a danger to our democracy, our country, and human life in the vicinity of our Capitol and beyond. https://t.co/D0qLlaFjTh

First of all, there was a scheduled rally featuring the sitting president of these United States that day, and it is not at all unusual for Congresscritters on both sides of the aisle to coordinate with like-minded groups. Are we expected to believe that political rallies featuring the president (or any politician or candidate) are not coordinated with members of that party’s Congressional caucuses and their grassroots supporters?
Indeed, AOC herself coordinated with eco-fascists in her ridiculous (clueless and outrageous) 2018 storming of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office. Had those activists gone on to break windows and (gasp!) put their feet on Pelosi’s desk, would AOC be to blame? Would that be an insurrection? Of course not on both counts.
Members of Congress coordinate with grassroots groups all the time to bolster attendance at various rallies and protests.
It doesn’t always work out, remember Biden’s pathetic “car rallies” that drew tens of supporters? You can bet that wasn’t a failure of planning (and much urgent pleading) between his team, relevant Democrat members of Congress, and leftist grassroots groups.
In short, there is nothing even mildly interesting—let alone alarming—about the Rolling Stone story AOC links in her tweet. It’s a “water is wet” story that would never have been published if it weren’t propping up the Democrats’ fabricated Reichstag narrative about January 6th.
No members of Congress helped "plot a terrorist attack". There was a rally/protest. It devolved into a riot at the Capitol. AOC was traumatized from somewhere other than the Capitol.
These are just lies to distract from how badly they and Biden are failing America. https://t.co/O3DaIsWeqb

Secondly, she is lying about January 6th. Again. What on earth does her crazy “almost 10 dead” line even mean? The one and only person who died of direct violence on January 6th was Ashli Babbitt, a Trump supporter shot to death by Capitol police officer Michael Byrd.
Claiming that there is "almost 10 dead" from the 1/6 riot is deceitful in the extreme.
Four people died on 1/6: all Trump supporters.
It's possible to connect a couple of the later police suicides to 1/6 if one stretches enough but this need to exaggerate 1/6 speaks for itself: https://t.co/TsRFGG0tWC

Because everything that can possibly go wrong for Democrats is going wrong, the consensus seems to be that it’s best to continue hyping the events of January 6th as the near-collapse of our entire federal government at the hands of a few hundred unarmed selfie-takers and “paraders” along with a smattering of also unarmed, but violent, rioters.
All the eye rolls.
It’s important to remember, too, that the violent rioters who attempted to stop the peaceful transfer of power on President Trump’s first Inauguration Day were richly rewarded for their trouble . . . to the tune of $1.6 million in taxpayer money. No one on the right launched themselves onto the nearest fainting couch whining about “insurrection” and the attempt “to subvert our Democracy” and “overthrow our government.”
You know why? Because they did none of the above; they were violent rioters who actually set fire to things, threw bricks at people, including police, and generally behaved abysmally in the hopes of stopping the inauguration of our great nation’s 45th president. But they were no more “insurrectionists” than were the January 6th protesters and rioters. Indeed, not one single person has been charged with insurrection, with treason, or with domestic terrorism in relation to either event.
But Democrats are craven wannabe tyrants eager to grasp at any justification to declare their “war on domestic terror” on essentially the two-thirds of the U.S. population who do not support their lunatic leftist agenda. They want to expand the federal government and to amass more power, more wealth, and total control over a free people. And they will stop at nothing to accomplish their commie dreams.
The lesson of 9/11 is — or should have been — that allowing politicians to deceitfully exaggerate domestic threats or exploit the propagandistic term "terrorism" to justify civil liberties assaults is dangerous in the extreme.
Clearly many have forgotten this lesson.

Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
Coordination with Nancy and the Capitol Police. Coordination between the FBI and informants inside the OathTakers. On and on.
And the Capital Police shot one unarmed protester to death and beat another for the ground and crushed her under their feet. And, the investigation blamed the dead women.
The trespassing incident at the US capital on January 6th was a hail Mary by the FBI, Antifa and deep state.
The reason and main objective was to use the massive powers of the DOJ and other governmental distraint to silence those who would dare speak of the stolen election
I don’t know anyone who voted for Trump who believes the election wasn’t stolen
If you don’t go back and fix that, then the ballot box is no longer a viable solution.
Fortunately/unfortunately the next viable option is the ammo box
I voted for Trump and I don’t know whether the election was stolen. I know the Dems were trying to steal it, but I don’t know whether this made any difference to the result, and I don’t believe anyone else knows either, or that it’s even possible for anyone ever to find out. Clearly a lot of people genuinely did vote for Biden, having been persuaded and brought out and assisted by multiple schemes that were totally unfair but perfectly legal. It’s completely plausible that there were enough of them for him to have won even without any of the stealing.
I’ve seen Millhous on the Simpsons and as a commenter here. But I don’t know him.
Rules of evidence and standing are far different in blogs and social media than for litigation
Things I consider: Who ordered the counting stopped in the wee hours of November 4th in 6 swing states and why?
Explain the video if the 19,958 PA vote switch
This is the short list and represents the tip of the iceberg
Hell, I didn’t vote for Trump (OR Biden) and I believe the election was stolen. It’s pretty damn obvious that voter fraud has been happening on an increasing scale at least in my lifetime.
You haven’t read for very long on the LI website if you don’t know Milhouse. He contributes thoughtfully to discussion. I don’t always agree with him but I always understand his position when he states it.
“I know the Dems were trying to steal it, but I don’t know whether this made any difference to the result”
Not a good argument.
Now that is an invalid argument. Even if that was just one fake dollar out of 99, the woman is still short a dollar. But stealing an election is a binary. If there were 10,000 fake votes in a state but the margin in that state was 10,001 then the election in that state was not stolen.
Can you imagine living in a brain so filled with venom and hate eating and hollowing out her soul? It is her own personal hell that she chooses to exist in.
Bring out your dead….
Had to log in just to “thumbs up” that line. Brilliant.
Did AOC happen to mention who was almost dead?
Generalissimo somebody somebody.
Is being almost dead like being almost preggies?
What else can this douchbag do but repeat the lies of her handlers?
Alexandra Cortez is the canary in our collective coal mine. Heed the warning.
Pour a beer? She’s too stupid to remember how to make a gin and tonic.
It’s possible to connect a couple of the later police suicides to 1/6 if one stretches enough but this need to exaggerate 1/6 speaks for itself
This is another reason why I have a hard time taking Glenn Greenwald seriously. If Greenwald has evidence that police committed suicide because of J6 he needs to pony up, not hint and leave it at that. Assertion without proof is the trademark of the Joseph Goebbels media.
Remember that this is the same guy who was wackily obsessed with Sarah Palin’s va-jay-jay.
I’m willing to give Greenwald some wide latitude. This is a guy who red-pilled himself, and got thrown off of the international news organ that he founded because of it.
Thing is, there were several cops who “got depressed and committed
Arkancidesuicide,” according to the narrative. Post hoc, ergo propter hoc is the swamp’s Official Fallacy on this subject.
Perhaps those cops who “got depressed and committed Arkancide refused to follow the official narrative. They’re playing for keeps. What’s a few dead cops to slow them down.
Watching the pattern, it’s deception on purpose. Like Ben Rhodes joked about Iran, the dupes are too ignorant to know differently. So why not take advantage?
UNBELIVEABLE BUT TRUE – INSTIGATORS WERE DOJ / FBI AGENTS
DOJ / FBI had informers and agents in Proud Boys and Oath Keepers. Those infiltrators instigated the Capitol riot.
Evidence was withheld from the Jan-6 Political Prisoners.
Read about it here.
FREE THE JAN-6 POLITICAL PRISIONERS
JUSTICE FOR ASHLI BABBITT
LET’S GO BRANDON
Liars will lie.
Communists will communist.
AOC doesn’t have the intelligence to do either.
Stop giving her any publicity!
I’ve had enough of this dullard.
Noo Yawkuhz will re-elect her for as long as she wants to be in office.
“almost 10 dead.”
In all fairness, that is as high as AOC can count without taking off her shoes.
True, but that would be an excuse only if the actual number were higher than 10. Since the actual number is in fact so far below 10 that she wouldn’t even need to remove her mittens, the excuse doesn’t work.
“almost 10 dead.”
OK, so name them, you lying bitch.
And death is really a binary kind of thing. There is no almost about death. Is it 8? 9? or 10?
Clearly she is rounding up to the nearest 10, much like the infrastructure bills’ tax plans.
“Math is hard.”
No, a person can be “half dead”, or “almost dead”. Even in the case of pregnancy, which is a binary, we speak of someone being “very pregnant”, meaning well along in pregnancy.
Is she trying to count in binary?
She’s using Common Core math. And she’s hispanic, so you can’t contradict her and impose your white supremacist, heteronormative, patriarchal notions of “correct” answers on her, you big mean raaaaaacist nativist h8ter!
Care to list the names and causes there Sandy? That’s what question everything means.
Why can’t you people recognize the subtlety of AOC’s exquisite mind? She obviously means that 6 people were so profoundly injured in the insurrection that they were at death’s door. She cannot name them for their own protection.
If that’s the case, E Howard Hunt, they clearly are not dead. But clearly AOC can’t tell the difference between someone who is dead and someone who is not dead, i.e. alive. As long as they both vote D early and often, doesn’t matter much.
Ugh, she’s such a tool.
Everyone who’s ever born had a mother to birth them. Everyone is also dead or will die. Does this mean that the mother is to blame for their death?
The rantings of AOC does not reflect well upon the Democrat electorate in general and New York voters in particular. Some of these people were alive and even some are Citizens.
After the shoot out on the movie set in New Mexico that left almost 10 dead Alec Baldwin is said to be remorseful.
Now he wishes he had taken an actual basic gun safety course before taking a position on the board of directors of a fake “gun safety” organization.
I don’t remember who said it first, but it fits: “Beauty is only skin deep, but ugly is to the bone.” Stupidity too.
She’s not ugly. She is oogly. It takes ten uglies to make one oogly.
And apparently 135,300 uglies to make one Googley.
Hey that is super funny!
she’s been thirteen for a very long time
Thirteen is her mouth size.
Convenient, because her shoe size is Almost 10.
At this point the Democrats agenda is just to dehumanize Republicans enough to hold onto their constituencies who will surely not vote for those sub human racist insurrectionists (note they are using insurrection the same way they did racism and replacing the term racism with the lie of “white nationalist”).
May it motivate you to vote Republican, turn out, and make sure people who share your views turn out. If there is no Republican victory in 2022 there will also be no end to this BS from the Democrats.
