Tin Foil Hat Republican: Bexar County GOP Chair Cynthia Brehm is facing calls for her resignation after making the outrageous claim that the police killing of George Floyd was a “staged event” to damage the reelection of Donald Trump.
San Antonio Current reports:
San Antonio political observers are accustomed to Bexar County Republican Chairwoman Cynthia Brehm spinning conspiracy webs…
This time, though, Brehm appears to have outdone herself.
In a now-deleted Facebook post, the local GOP leader theorized that the death of George Floyd while in Minneapolis police custody might be a “staged event” meant to undermine President Donald Trump’s chances with black voters.
The following is a screen shot of Brehm’s idiotic Facebook post via Express-News political columnist Gilbert Garcia:
On Facebook Brehm wrote:
These officers were involved in something, I’m not sure exactly what, but something is just not adding up.
Also this supposed officer is now missing from his home, no where to be found has the smell of MK Ultra activation.
I think that there is at the very least the `possibility’, that this was a filmed public execution of a black man by a white cop, with the purpose of creating racial tensions and driving a wedge in the growing group of anti deep state sentiment from common people, that have been already been psychologically traumatized by COVID 19 fears.
Historically, in election years and politically contested areas or groups, racial or gun violence incidents are becoming common place.
Considering the rising approval level of President Trump in the black community an event like this was entirely ‘Predictable.’
This is not the first time the Texas County GOP Chair has made headlines by sharing ridiculous conspiracy theories. Last month Brehm made the outrageous claim that the coronavirus pandemic is a Democratic hoax.
As a result of making the dangerous and idiotic claim that the police killing of George Floyd was a staged event meant to damage Trump’s reelection campaign, Texas Governor Greg Abbott is calling on Brehm to resign.
In a statement, John Wittman, the governor’s communications director, said:
These comments are disgusting and have no place in the Republican Party or in public discourse. Cynthia Brehm should immediately resign her position as chair of the Bexar County Republican Party.
Bottom line: Bexar County GOP Chair Cynthia Brehm is facing calls for her resignation after making the outrageous claim that the police killing of George Floyd was a “staged event” to damage the reelection of Donald Trump.
