“Never Trump” Republican rep Adam Kinzinger admitted in an interview for Rolling Stone that he contemplated firing his gun as pro-Trump supporters rioted on the Capitol on January 6.

Kinzinger made the comments to CNN political commentator SE Cupp, who led the interview.

Cupp asked the Illinois “Republican” to bring her back to the events of that day, to which Kinzinger unleashed what could easily be mistaken for one of the AOCs. therapy sessions on the topic.

The deputy recalled how Trump supporters “loot (ed) the Capitol” and how days earlier he tried to warn of the potential for violence.

After hearing former President Donald Trump’s speech, Kinzinger says he quit the certification process and spent “six hours in my office, crouched, gun in hand, ready to defend against my own party.”

Kinzinger thought about shooting at the protesters

Rep Adam Kinzinger continued, explaining that there was a point during the Capitol uprising where he was “genuinely scared” because he had a “real sense of evil” about what was happening.

The devoted anti-Trumper said he “barricaded” himself in his office thinking, “If this is as bad as it sounds, they might end up in my office, breaking this shit, and I might have to do what I can.”

Cupp, another “Never Trump” Republican, then asked if Kinzinger “contemplated having to unload his firearm on American citizens.”

“Yes, I’ve thought about it,” he replied, adding that if he came face to face with the protesters, “they will try to fight and kill me, and I won’t let that happen.”

I thought about using the weapon

Adam Kinzinger’s comments closely resemble what far left representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said that day.

Ocasio-Cortez has accused Trump supporters of attempted murder and revealed who has been in therapy to learn how to cope with “extraordinarily traumatizing” protest.

Kinzinger has been prone to hyperbole regarding Trump.

Just a few weeks ago, he compared Republicans opposing Trump to the heroes of Flight 93 who fought against terrorists on 9/11.

“People have to stand up and say this is wrong,” Kinzinger said. “We have to – if you think of the heroism on Flight 93 that saved the Capitol in 2001, it wasn’t just Todd Beamer.”

The only thing that separates Kinzinger from the other Squad members at this point is the lipstick.

It is not the only one, however.

Senator Lindsey Graham recently admitted that she urged police officers to use guns during the January 6 uprising on the Capitol, yelling at them to “take back the Senate!”

“You have guns. Use them, “he told police personnel.

Sheesh. Even House Speaker Nancy Pelosi did not flinch, suggesting that at some point she would push the protesters back in her high heels.

Pelosi suggested that the “mafia” at the Capitol riots “wanted to kill her”.

“That’s what they were trying to do,” she replied before adding, “Well, I’m pretty tough. I’m a street fighter. They would have had a fight on their hands.”

Pelosi then joked that he had a weapon ready.

“I would have had these,” she said, sporting 4-inch stiletto heels.

Important to remember that a total of five people died during the uprising on the Capitol, but only Ashli ​​Babbitt, an unarmed veteran of the air force and staunch supporter of former President Trump, was killed.

It’s nice to know that under a little pressure, Graham and Kinzinger were ready to pull the trigger – literally – and create countless other stories just like Babbitt’s.

One wonders how Graham and Kinzinger’s desire to shoot unarmed protesters would have manifested in the legacy media had they suggested doing so during a Black Lives Matter riot last May in Washington, DC that forced secret service to take President Trump to an underground bunker concerned about his safety.

Trump, as far as I remember, never cried about it. He didn’t end up in therapy.

Kinzinger recently announced that he will not seek re-election, just weeks after the Illinois Democrats unveiled a new Congressional map that had a significant impact on his chances of winning in 2022.

“I also remember during that campaign I said that if I ever thought it was time to go through Congress, I would, and that time is now,” he said.

The attention-loving deputy refused to rule out the ride for superior office.

“I certainly wouldn’t rule out the Senate or the governor and whatever,” he said. “Maybe who knows?”
