GOP NY Representative Lee Zeldin stated Sunday that the DNC’s strategy is to label Republicans “whites supremacists and Nazis” during every election.
“Every election when there are races, they’ll label conservatives as white supremacists and Nazis,” Zeldin said to Fox News.
“They have no issue with those names and yet they want folks to ask why there is barbed wire surrounding the Capitol, and they claim, ‘well, let’s talk about Trump voters and what occurred on January 6. That’s what this is about,” he added.
Zeldin then claimed the National Guard troops in D.C. are a part of that display.
“Now it feels like props and politics. Democrats want to push a narrative about Jan. 6 and connect that to 75 million Trump voters.”
The congressman stressed that the Democrats are trying to create a link between the Capitol incident and all of Donald Trump’s supporters being worthy of blame.
The House voted on Jan. 13 to impeach President Trump for “inciting insurrection”, after the crowd of supposed Trump supporters rushed into the Capitol building on Jan. 6.
Trump had told these supporters “We’re going to the Capitol and we will cheer on our brave senators. We won’t give up, and we will never concede.” The following events led to lawmakers seeking safety as five people were killed by police.
