Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas was trying to make a point this week when he repeated a quote from Nancy Pelosi last year about uprisings. He was trying to point out the hypocrisy of Democrats.
The idiots in our media immediately started accusing Gohmert of fomenting violence.
Have we reached peak stupidity yet?
The Federalist reports:
Media Are Accusing A Republican Lawmaker Of Insurrection For Quoting Nancy Pelosi
Corporate media journalists and left-wing activists took to social media on Wednesday to spread claims that Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas is in favor of inciting insurrection.
“Here’s a quote. ‘I just don’t even know why there aren’t more uprisings all over the country, and maybe there will be,’” Gohmert said on the House floor during the impeachment debate.
While Gohmert specified that what he was saying was a quote, taken directly from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s previous statements encouraging uprisings, journalists and activists quickly twisted his words, publicly speculating and claiming he was calling for increased political violence around the nation.
Take a look below:

"I don't know why there aren't uprisings all over the country. Maybe there will be," Louie Gohmert says, perhaps hopefully.

Louie Gohmert literally asked for Trump supporters to commit violence on live TV prior to the insurrection. Why is he even there???

Gohmert is the id of the GOP caucus. He just said on the House floor: "Here's a quote for ya, why aren't there more uprisings all over the country?"

This is what Gohmert was quoting. Nancy Pelosi in 2018:
Here’s what @replouiegohmert quoted:
"I just don’t even know why there aren’t uprisings all over the country, and maybe there will be."
– Nancy Pelosi on June 14, 2018
Fake news propagandists probably don’t remember though since they rarely cover calls to violence Dems make. pic.twitter.com/vcAdD6xA4L

Our media doesn’t even try to be honest.
