Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) took to the Senate floor to drop a few truth bombs on Democrats and the mainstream media narrative that the government was almost overthrown on January 6.
“The Vice President of the United States told us that a riot that happened here in the U.S. Capitol here last year was the equivalent of the day in which Japan attacked us at Pearl harbor and the US was pulled into a World War that took the lives of over 3% of the world’s population,” Rubio said.
“And yesterday we were treated to the President telling us that election laws that are being passed by various states across the country over the last year are basically the same – the equivalent of the segregation that existed in this country in the 1950s, and 60s and before.”
“If your daily routine is to wake up in the morning and turn on MSNBC as you ride your Peloton and then you go on Twitter as you’re drinking your caramel macchiato and then you’re reading the New York Times as you’re eating your avocado toast, I Imagine all this makes perfect sense to you. After all, for these people they believe this ridiculous narrative that every Republican is is an insurrectionist, probably a racist, wants to overthrow the US government and wants to destroy democracy.”
“The good news is that the overwhelming majority of Americans live back here on planet earth.”
Later in the speech, Rubio stressed that normal people don’t believe our government was almost overthrown on January 6.
“I don’t care how many candlelight vigils and musical performances you have from the cast of Hamilton, you’re not going to convince most normal and sane people that our government last year was almost overthrown by a guy wearing a Viking hat and speedos.”
