Congress Crime Domestic Terrorism GOP WTF?!

Rep. Mo Brooks Says He Sympathizes With The Capitol Bomb Suspect

Once again today, the nation saw yet another example of domestic terrorism as a man identified by authorities as Floyd Ray Roseberry of North Carolina, parked a pickup truck near the U.S. Capitol and began live streaming a message on social media in which he ranted:

“I have no fear. None. That crack in my voice is from the passion for the land I love. Somebody needs to tell Joe Biden we here. Fucking revolution starts today, Joe Biden, and before you go crackin’ any pops on me you better get your military experts out and ask them what a seven-pound keg of gunpowder would do with two-and-a-half pounds of tannerite will do, motherfucker! You know what else? I’m not going to light it. I’m going to give Joe Biden the option to.”

And yet, Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) wants the country to know that while he doesn’t condone what Roseberry did, the specter of “dictatorial Socialism” is driving people to take drastic actions:

Just in case Brooks decides to take his tweet down (or Twitter does it for him), here’s a screenshot of the congressman’s statement:

Brooks, of course, also had this to say at the January 6 rally that preceded the Capitol insurrection:

“Today is the day American patriots start taking down names and kicking ass.”

The tweet and statement from Congressman Brooks was met with anger and disgust on social media:

It would be nice if House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy would come out and denounce what Brooks tweeted. He could also call for a censure vote to punish Brooks when Congress returns next month.

But of course we won’t hold our breath waiting for any Republican to do the right thing. They haven’t yet, so why would they start now?
