Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has been pretending that the greatly increased security around the U.S. Capitol is necessary. But the facts are not in her favor — and now, the news is spreading across the nation.
“There’s absolutely no reason for that fencing to be up anymore,” Rep. Mike Rogers, a Michigan Republican, said Friday, according to Breitbart.
“That riot that happened on [Jan. 6] was just poor planning on the part of the Capitol police and the Metropolitan police. We have much bigger protests in Washington on a regular basis every year than that. They just did a terrible job of planning for it,” he said. “That was the reason it turned out like it did.”
But Rogers didn’t stop there. The congressman went on to say that “there was never a reason to bring in all the fencing and the razor wire and the large presence of National Guardsmen,” adding:
That’s all theater that Nancy Pelosi is trying to create the impression that Republicans are dangerous and [Donald] Trump was the cause of all of this. It’s silly. The most outrageous that she is doing right now.
She still has members of the House having to walk through magnetometers to go on the House floor. And if you don’t walk through them, then you get hit with a $5,000 fine that they automatically deduct from your next paycheck. She’s just out of control.
Pelosi’s fake crisis of security is clearly meant to give current imagery to an ongoing narrative that the left needs to advance a political agenda. As Rogers says, it’s not based on any fact or known threat.
