Rep. Mo Brooks Defends His Speech at Pro-Trump Rally After ‘Fake News Media and Socialist Democrat Attacks’ – By Savannah Rychcik (IJ Review) / January 12 2021
Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) is defending his remarks he delivered at a pro-President Donald Trump rally shortly before angry protesters descended on the U.S. Capitol.
On Tuesday, Brooks released a statement “in response to scurrilous Fake News Media and Socialist Democrat attacks related to his January 6th ‘Save America’ rally speech.”
He wrote, “Let’s be clear, this entire smear campaign is about intimidating, censoring and suppressing the ability of American citizens to fight at the ballot box the efforts of Socialist Democrats to seize control of the United States of America.”
Brooks added, “So that I am unambiguously clear, American citizens’ recourse is at the ballot box (maybe this comment will deter Socialist Democrats and Fake News Media from again shrilly shouting false claims of violence advocacy).”
