Domestic Terrorist: Congressman Mo Brooks makes “no apology” for calling on Trump-loving terrorists to “kick ass” before they stormed the U.S. Capitol.
Congressman Mo Brooks stood firm Friday, saying “I make no apology” for his fiery speech Wednesday that preceded pro-Trump supporters briefly taking control of the Capitol hours later.
The Hill reports:
Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) issued a statement Tuesday defending his speech last week near the U.S. Capitol shortly before a mob stormed the building.
In the statement, Brooks attacked critics who have accused him of inciting the mob with his speech, in which he exhorted the crowd to “start taking down names and kicking ass.”
In a text message to AL.com Brooks said:
I make no apology for doing my absolute best to inspire patriotic Americans to not give up on our country and to fight back against anti-Christian socialists in the 2022 and 2024 elections. I encourage EVERY citizen to watch my entire rally speech and decide for themselves what kind of America they want: One based on freedom and liberty or one based on Godless dictatorial power.
In a lengthy and unhinged official statement, Brooks claimed that he was the victim of a “smear campaign” after being widely condemned for instructing Trump-loving domestic terrorists to “start taking down names and kicking ass” minutes before the assault on the U.S. Capitol began.
In a statement punctuated with Bible quotes and claims of persecution, Brooks blames “Socialist Democrats and Fake News Media” for his current problems.
Brooks even goes so far as to argue that he could not be responsible for inciting the domestic terrorists because he is a “straight arrow.”
In his defense the juvenile imbecile declares:
Let me share a little about myself. My long-time acquaintances and family would describe me as a straight arrow or a “square”.
I have never smoked tobacco.
I don’t consume alcohol.
I have never taken illegal drugs.
I have never been accused or convicted of any felonies or misdemeanors.
What an idiot.
In the end, nothing will change the fact that standing before the crowd that would storm the U.S. Capitol, an enthusiastic Brookes egged the violent crowd on, declaring:
Today is the day American patriots start taking down names and kicking ass.
Bottom line: Congressman Mo Brooks makes “no apology” for calling on Trump-loving terrorists to “kick ass” before they stormed the U.S. Capitol.
