Former GOP congress member Michele Bachmann (R-MN) blames Democrats for storming the Capitol building in a recent interview. “This didn’t look anything like the Trump crowd or the prayer warriors,” she said. “Don’t think for a minute that these were nasty, naughty, ridiculous, hillbilly Trump people. That is not what you saw.”
Some believe Antifa infiltrated the MAGA rally
“You know the kind of people that we were with [at the rally],” Bachmann said during a livestream. “The nicest, friendliest, happiest people. It was like a family reunion out there. It was incredible. It was wonderful. And then all of a sudden this happens.”
“And it reminded me of Moscow in 1917 with the Bolsheviks, where there were rabble-rousers who dressed up in the opposition’s clothing and had a violent event in the streets. And we saw what happened to Russia: Russia went into 70 years of captivity. I am telling you, I’m not a betting woman, but I would put $1,000 on any table to say this wasn’t the Trump crowd. This didn’t look anything like the Trump crowd or the prayer warriors. These were rabble-rousers. Paid rabble-rousers.”
“This is a coup,” she continued. “What you observed today was a coup. Does anybody honestly believe that this young pajama boy running for U.S. Senate in Georgia [Senator-elect Jon Ossoff], who produced Chinese propaganda films for the Chinese, that he was elected senator today?”
Oh, cops didn’t use tear gas, other chemical agents, and flash bangs on Trump supporters at the Capitol yesterday?

Patriots storm the Capitol and demand a fair election
“Or this guy who’s a pro-abortion-loving pastor [Senator-elect Raphael Warnock], who is in charge of a child’s camp that abused little children, does anybody think that this cat was elected as senator in Georgia? We’re talking Georgia!”
“This was a coup in Georgia with these same phony machines run by Stacey Abrams down there — she’s not even elected, but she’s running this state — with these bought-off phony Republicans down in Georgia.”
“It was a coup so that the Senate was lost today — not lost, stolen today — and now they want to finish the job, and they want the coup to be done today, on January 6, so they can seal the deal with Joe Biden as the next president of the United States. Today was the day to have the coup, to put it all in process and have it come to the head. That’s what this was. This is a coup.”
