An Idaho state lawmaker is facing backlash for sharing a conspiracy theory that former President Obama helped to orchestrate the violent white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., as part of a plot to take down President Trump.
Idaho Rep. Bryan Zollinger on Friday posted a story on Facebook that suggested Obama and other top Democrats like billionaire George Soros and Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe were part of a conspiracy to set up the rally, the Post Register reported.
“I’m not saying it is true, but I am suggesting that it is completely plausible,” Zollinger wrote on Facebook.
The story claims that Obama has set up a “war room” to fight against the Trump administration — a claim that has largely been debunked — and that Charlottesville was a part of his plan. (DEBUNKED, OF COURSE, BY WHOM??!! Paul Ryan has been identified and photographed as sneaking into Obama’s ‘headquarters’ on a regular basis.)
The lawmaker later told the Idaho Statesman that it was “maybe a mistake” to share the story but doubled down on his statement that the claims were “plausible.”
The Charlottesville rally turned violent when ‘white supremacist groups’ (hired by the leftists?), including neo-Nazis and Ku Klux Klan members, clashed with counter protesters. A woman was killed when a car was driven into counter protesters. The alleged driver ‘has ties to white supremacist groups’.
Trump faced harsh criticism for his initial response to the violence when he blamed “many sides” for the violence. Days later he criticized white supremacists, but then later reverted to his initial stance, blaming “both sides” and specifically accusing the “alt-left” of provoking violence.
ALL sane and reasonable Americans have figured out by now that no matter what our President Trump says or does, it will be in print as being WRONG, biased and anti-American or some group or groups – but not the ones the snowflakes want mentioned! So do we give a da*n what the media reports? He*l NO! TRUE patriot Americans know better! And President Trump continues to prove that he thinks for himself – echoes our thoughts and opinions – that he is out to protect and help America – and is not a puppet for the demonic Kharzarians. Thank You, dear God, for protecting Trump and his family, and for the great wisdom from on high that You are imparting in our President. We ask YOU, Father, to fully EXPOSE the traitors siding with Obama, including US military officers and the CON-gress, and to bring forth Your Army to take them down.
