“I just find these guys despicable, quite frankly.” Newsmax host Greg Kelly goes off on the Capitol officers who’ve cried trauma, collected ‘fake news’ paychecks, and invalidated other violence against cops since Jan 6, 2021.
He begins by acknowledging the harsh reality of PTSD, especially among those in the military, law enforcement and other front-line personnel. Kelly would know about PTSD, he served as an officer in the U.S. Marine Corps reserves and was involved in Operation Southern Watch. He flew countless missions over Iraq enforcing the no-Fly zone.
That’s why he pushed back on the claims made by some of those involved at the U.S. Capitol on this day last year. Specifically, Kelly criticized the account of a journalist who claimed to be traumatized over seeing a broken window at the U.S. Capitol.
He also criticized the lack of preparation among the Washington Police. They were certainly aware of the size of the crowd and aware of the unrest from online posts made ahead of the protest, so why was it so easy for people to enter the building?
Kelly claims the J6 committee is not asking this question, though they should.
He also compared the violence to the violence at various BLM rallies throughout the previous year. The situation in some of those incidents was as bad or worse.
The provocative piece is worth checking out and he has the details to back it up. Check it out now and decide where you stand as the nation marks one year from the Jan. 6 event.
