Unhinged anti-Trump hysteric Rep. Al Green took a photo of himself sitting on the Capitol’s steps on Thursday and distributed it to the news media to send a message that he would stand up to the “right-wing extremists” he believed would attempt to breach the Capitol that day.
“I want to make a statement to let people know, those who would threaten those of us who cherish this freedom that we have here that we refuse to allow those threats to negate our freedom,” he told The Hill. “I want to send a message to those who would abridge our rights — I want to let them know that I refuse to allow them to prevent me from enjoying this freedom that I have, that I won’t surrender the freedom that I have. This means a lot to me, just to sit here and I’ve talked to several to officers who’ve come by, I see the fence with the razor wire at the top, there are troops all around the perimeter.”
“I love my country and believe that freedom is not free,” he added on Twitter. “Others have made great sacrifices for the freedoms I enjoy. I refuse to surrender our nation’s Capitol to those who would abridge my freedom. Hence, as a matter of personal principle, I will be in the Capitol complex today.”
Green, protected by a razor-wire fence and National Guard troops, apparently did not see the irony of the fact that it is he and his fellow Democrats who are fraudulently occupying the White House and attempting to abridge the freedoms of all Americans.
