Sept. 30, House of Representatives. N.Y. Rep. Jamaal Bowman is caught on a security camera pulling a fire alarm switch, causing an evacuation and delaying a vote. House Democrats wanted to delay a vote to prevent a government shutdown.
Since then, Bowman has been accused of a criminal offense, similar to what protestors were charged with for the Jan. 6th protest march. (Dems call J6 “an insurrection.”)
Bowman’s excuse: The door was locked, so he panicked, pulling the fire alarm, thinking the doors would open. This argument fails because Bowman was formally a middle school principal and knows fire alarms don’t open doors.
Bowman’s office issued some talking points for House Democrats telling them what to say on social media and referred to MAGA Republicans as “Nazis”. Again, he walked back this statement.
Dems and the MSM have done what they always do, circled the wagons and rushed to his defense, saying Bowman made a mistake and was only confused.
Analysis. If the Dems had been smart, they would’ve said nothing. His act speaks for itself. A third grader would know he’s lying. Instead, Democrats lower themselves to his level. They are duplicitous scam artists.
There’s a video of Bowman laughing like a hysterical 13 year old when Trump’s mug shot was show on TV. “We got him,” he burbles, then keeps on laughing. This pretty much sums up the kind of people who are after Trump.
This is the GOP’s chance to have all the J6ers released if Bowman goes unpunished. You can’t have two sets of laws for the people you favor. If Bowman is punished by censure, it hardly equals what the J6ers are going through locked up by the corrupt Biden-Obama administration.
