Triggered Congressmen Seek Therapy for Trauma Endured Due to Infamous Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol Protest
Many Congressmen are seeking therapy for the trauma they allegedly endured at the infamous Jan. 6 demonstration in and around the U.S. Capitol, which resulted in the legislature being postponed for a few hours.
Even though the protest was mostly peaceful by the standards set during the ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter riots in summer 2020, that hasn’t stopped Congressmen from telling the public repeatedly that they’re poor traumatized victims worthy of sympathy.
Paul Tewksbury, who works as director of the House Office of Employee Assistance, is reporting that his office has provided 760 counseling sessions to members of Congress since Jan. 6. This is a “significant increase” over the usual total of requests.
“There’s a lot of stress and anger going on. … We’re validating feelings, whatever they are,” Rep. Gerald E. Connolly (D-VA) said to Roll Call. “Interestingly, the people I think who were struggling the most are the people who physically were not here.”
Individuals who were not there, such as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), have gone out of their way to make the situation all about their personal victimhood.
Big League Politics has reported on how Ocasio-Cortez was caught in a lie about surviving the Capitol siege and then demanded censorship so she could not be held accountable:
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is urging her supporters to act as online hall monitors after being caught in a lie about last month’s raucous Capitol protest.
Ocasio-Cortez had recounted a story earlier this week about a supposed threat to her physical person during the Capitol event on January 6th. Ocasio-Cortez recounted rioters besieging a House office building where she was present. However, there’s no reason to believe that riotous protestors ever entered the Cannon House Office building, although those present within the office evacuated during the event.
Ocasio-Cortez was called out by whistleblowers for her embellishment of the Capitol riot. Ocasio-Cortez had told a dramatic story of a police officer supposedly intimidating her in a Tuesday livestream, playing the role of a victim. Ocasio-Cortez had claimed that she believed her own death was imminent when the officer knocked on the door of the House office she was in, believing that marauding rioters had arrived to assassinate her.
In response, Ocasio-Cortez issued a campaign email late Wednesday night instructing her followers to report content that included the tag #AlexandriaOcasioSmollett, comparing the congresswoman to the infamous Chicago actor who faked a Trump-related hate crime.
I wonder how many people needed therapy after their neighborhoods were ransacked by ANTIFA and BLM terrorists last summer as Congress cheered them on. You will never see any articles depicting the plight of those individuals in the fake news media.
