Default Media Are Accusing A Republican Lawmaker Of Insurrection For Quoting Nancy Pelosi

Of you didn't think the media wasn't a joke before, then you're an idiot if you don't think they're a joke now...

Long story short...Republican Rep. Louis Gohmert said "I just don’t even know why there aren’t more uprisings all over the country, and maybe there will be."...

The media went bonkers, accusing him of inciting riots and insurrection...

Only one problem...He was QUOTING NANCY PELOSI, who said that EXACT THING...when the media was silent...


Media Are Accusing A Republican Lawmaker Of Insurrection For Quoting Nancy Pelosi

Quote:
Corporate media journalists and left-wing activists took to social media on Wednesday to spread claims that Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas is in favor of inciting insurrection.

“Here’s a quote. ‘I just don’t even know why there aren’t more uprisings all over the country, and maybe there will be,’” Gohmert said on the House floor during the impeachment debate.

While Gohmert specified that what he was saying was a quote, taken directly from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s previous statements encouraging uprisings, journalists and activists quickly twisted his words, publicly speculating and claiming he was calling for increased political violence around the nation.

“Louie Gohmert calls for more violent uprisings claims Nancy Pelosi is destroying the American experiment and quotes the History Channel in about two minutes,” tweeted Sarah Reese Jones, a managing editor and columnist at PoliticusUSA.

“Holy sh*t. Is Gohmer encouraging MORE “uprisings”??!? Did I hear that right??????????” CNN analyst Asha Rangappa wrote.

“Louie Gohmert literally asked for Trump supporters to commit violence on live TV prior to the insurrection. Why is he even there???” a KTVU Fox reporter asked on Twitter.

During the rest of his speaking time, Gohmert also quoted Pelosi in August claiming that “the domestic enemies of our voting system and honoring our Constitution are right at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, with their allies in Congress of the United States.” He also condemned the Democrats’ hypocrisy on violent speech and their political attempt to remove President Donald Trump from office just a week before President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration.

Why?

If you had any facts to go with this other than calling anything that's NOT CNN Fascist. I would listen to your points.
But Salt your KNEE Jerk Reactions and NOT addressing the FACTUAL POINTS is um ...distressing.

you're simply NAME CALLING.

Because the Federalist doesn't bow to the left and helps to destroy any arguments her hero's use to push their leftist policies. And also because she isn't smart enough to form a coherent thought to refute anything published in the Federalist.

Are you saying the video is false or that the media is not accusing a lawmaker of insurrection for quoting Pelosi?
