Freshman Rep. Burgess Owens (R-UT) attempted to talk patriotism & false equivalences on the insurrection. Watch Rep. Hakeem Jeffries epic takedown.
Hakeem Jeffries takes down a poser
It is always hard to know if Trump and the Republican insurrectionist enablers believe what they are saying. If they do, said the flaw could be fatal. But if they are just play-acting, which many believe they are doing, they are a clear and present danger to the republic.
Freshman Representative from Utah, Burgess Owen, gave a soliloquy for which I was embarrassed for him. It showed a level of ignorance and misplaced concern.
But we need not worry. Rep. Hakeem Jeffries was read to school. He was perturbed with the man's nonsensical statement.
Congressman Jeffries sliced at Owens' and every Republican's attempt of trivializing the unpatriotic seditious insurrection with the following prescient statement.
"You asked the question," Hakeem Jeffries said. "A violent insurrection resulted in the spilling of American blood. People died. The capital was desecrated. Urine and feces were left behind. The confederate flag was bandied about. That didn't even happen in this Capitol during the Civil War. The Trump flag was placed instead of the American flag. That's an insurrection. That's sedition. That's undemocratic. That's problematic, and the American thing to do is to stand up to it."
No more needs to be said.
