Lawyer Mo Brooks (R-AL), who is vying for a seat in the U.S. Senate from Alabama, told Breitbart News on Friday that he was wearing a “bulletproof vest” on Jan. 6 because of threats against him from Antifa and Black Lives Matter, who says Stephen Colbert of CBS and the wider left on this day unfairly framing his wearing bulletproof vests as proof of prior knowledge of how the events of the day will unfold at the Capitol.
Tuesday, Colbert referenced recent attempt Rolling Stone – transferred Local Alabama News in Day beast – to link Brooks to the violence at the Capitol, which Democrats and the left-wing media regularly portray as an “uprising”.
“Stephen Colbert – and it seems like the whole left – is just lying freely,” Brooks said on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with leader Alex Marlow. »6. In January, at the Ellipse Rally, a mile and a half from the United States Capitol, I wore an armored jacket, a bulletproof vest – though technically not really bulletproof, but they help – and I wore it because the socialist left radicals in society made many threats of violence – including death – against members of the United States Congress, myself included.
Brooks recalled the attempted mass murder carried out by James Hodgkinson, a left-wing supporter of Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), against Republicans in 2017 in a charity event training match.
He said, “And I was shot formerly on a baseball field. Therefore, you need to take these threats seriously. Of course, if you’ve seen the massacre – five innocent people shot by a socialist fool – then you need to be concerned and my office has received Capitol Police warnings [and] tips that we need to be a bit safer due to threats from Black Lives Matter, Antifa or [other] the socialist left [groups]. ”
“So my staff and my wife wanted me to wear a bulletproof vest, so I did,” he added. “Now, Stephen Colbert and the radical left are just lying about why I wore this vest. Rumor has it that I was convinced there would be an attack on the Capitol. The fallacy of their attack is clearly clear, as I took off my bulletproof vest as soon as I finished my speech at Ellipse and returned to my office – which was somewhere between 9.30am and 10am.
He concluded: “At the United States Capitol, I felt completely safe. I had no idea what was going to happen … but Stephen Colbert and the leftists want to lie about all this and falsely claim that we had Republicans anyway, that this will happen when it is furthest from the truth and no evidence to support this outrageous fraud. “
