Former President Barack Obama released a statement on Thursday marking the anniversary of what the left falsely calls an “insurrection,” fear-mongering that “our democracy is at greater risk today than it was back then.”
“One year ago, a violent attack on our Capitol made it clear just how fragile the American experiment in democracy really is,” Obama began. “And while the broken windows have been repaired and many of the rioters have been brought to justice, the truth is that our democracy is at greater risk today than it was back then.”
Fact check: the violence at the Capitol on January 6, 2021 was sparked by FBI instigators and Antifa thugs bussed in to cause havoc that could be blamed on peaceful Trump supporters, many of whom were trying desperately to stem the violence and vandalism.
“Although initially rejected by many Republicans, the claims that fanned the flames of violence on January 6th have since been embraced by a sizeable portion of voters and elected officials – many of whom know better,” Obama continued, referring to the legitimate complaints about widespread Democrat voter fraud that gave the November election to far-left puppet Joe Biden.
“Historically, Americans have been defenders of democracy and freedom around the world – especially when it’s under attack,” the radical leftist added. “But we can’t serve that role when leading figures in one of our two major political parties are actively undermining democracy at home. We can’t set an example when our own leaders are willing to fabricate lies and cast doubt on the results of free and fair elections.”
All true — but the major political party fabricating lies and casting doubt on election integrity is Obama’s.
