Ted Nugent has repeated the false narrative that that January 6, 2021 rioters have been welcomed into the Capitol by law enforcement officials.
In line with CNN, former U.S. president Donald Trump mentioned in a ebook interview in March that “the Capitol Police have been ushering folks in” and “the Capitol Police have been very pleasant. You realize, they have been hugging and kissing.” The declare has been echoed by Trump supporters, together with Trump-endorsed Republican Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake, who declared at a Trump rally in October that the folks being held in jail over the Capitol assault “have been invited in by Capitol Police.”
Earlier right now, Nugent repeated the false declare throughout his YouTube livestream, saying that the “FBI instigated the January sixth vandalism. That was the FBI that did that. The Trump supporters did not do something incorrect,” he claimed. “They have been ushered into the Capitol by the Capitol Police. While you’re ushered in by regulation enforcement, you are not trespassing. Do you suppose if I welcomed folks onto my property after which I referred to as the choose and mentioned, ‘Hey, choose, they’re trespassing.’ ‘Effectively, I’ve bought video of you welcoming them in your property. In order that would not be trespassing; you really welcomed them on your property. So eat shit, Nugent. That is not trespassing.'” He added: “Hey, FBI. Hey, Capitol Police. Hey, judges. Hey, Obama-appointed judges, that is not trespassing. Legislation enforcement welcomed them into the Capitol.”

Nugent additionally went on to reward a California physician identified for spreading debunked claims about COVID-19 who was sentenced on Thursday to 60 days in jail for illegally coming into and remaining within the U.S. Capitol throughout the January 6 riot. Dr. Simone Gold, founding father of the group America’s Frontline Docs, which handled Nugent when he contracted COVID-19 in April 2021, was additionally ordered to pay a $9,500 nice.
“The nice brave hero Dr. Simone Gold was charged with crimes that she’s gonna have jail time,” Ted mentioned. “Dr. Simone Gold, who advisable ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine that cured folks, that saved folks from the weaponized Wuhan virus, that saved them from the emergency experimental shot that our personal authorities mentioned it isn’t a vaccine however let’s name it a vaccine, as a result of persons are snug with that. You bear in mind when the federal government mentioned, ‘Persons are snug with one thing. Let’s mislead ’em.’ ‘Get on the prepare. You are going to a bathe.’ ‘Effectively, they’re snug with showers, so we’ll inform ’em they’re getting on the prepare to go to the showers. They’re snug with that.’ ‘They’re snug with the phrase ‘vaccine’ so let’s inform ’em it is a vaccine although it is an emergency experimental shot that does not have any analysis and is killing folks and destroying folks’s lives.’ However I am gonna get off Fb as a result of I am violating their neighborhood requirements. So as an instance I am a Jew in Nuremberg in 1938 and I wanna have a bar mitzvah. I would in all probability be violating the neighborhood requirements of Hitler.”
This isn’t the primary time Nugent has unfold misinformation in regards to the Capitol Riot. Again in January, he as soon as once more repeated the baseless conspiracy concept that the riot on the U.S. Capitol was orchestrated by undercover FBI brokers, Antifa and Black Lives Matter.
On January 6, 2021, supporters of former president Donald Trump stormed the U.S. Capitol, vandalized the constructing and assaulted law enforcement officials. 5 folks died, together with a Capitol police officer, Brian Sicknick, and a 35-year-old Air Drive veteran, Ashli Babbit, shot by police.
Many prime political figures have accused Trump of personally inciting the assault by repeatedly intimating that his followers ought to take motion to be able to demand legislators deal with his baseless claims of voter fraud. At a rally previous the riot, Trump gave an inflammatory speech, urging the group to go to the Capitol, “present energy” and “battle a lot more durable.”
Within the wake of the assault, Twitter completely suspended Trump‘s account, citing “the danger of additional incitement of violence.”
Nugent mentioned the Capitol riot fallout throughout a January 6, 2022 YouTube livestream marking the primary anniversary of the tragic occasion. The outspoken conservative rocker mentioned: “I believe January sixth, 2021 was a present from God to additional emphasize and show simply how rotten to the core, terminally dishonest, treasonously prison the Democrat get together is, particularly this devilpunk who thinks he is the commander in chief. Are you listening and watching this monster of an America-hating, freedom-hating prick? Are you watching and listening to this man? ‘Effectively, that is awfully harsh, Ted.’ Sure, this can be very harsh as a result of there are not any mild or civil phrases to make use of to explain Joe Biden or Kamala Harris or, fairly actually, anyone in authorities proper now.
“I articulated what right now, January sixth, is and why it is a present from God for individuals who possess an important attribute and duty of an experimenter in self-government, which solely occurs in the USA Of America. And that attribute, that energy, that definitive impartial spirit known as important pondering. You have to critically take into consideration all the things now greater than ever, I am certain. However here is what critically pondering and the amassing of proof and the identification of statistics, video footage, the statements by the enemies within the authorities.”
Ted continued: “Here is what occurred on January sixth, 2021. Trump held a rally in Washington, D.C., and the conservative households who… Unprecedented rallies all through the marketing campaign for President Trump. For the primary time within the historical past of humankind, tens of 1000’s — I used to be there; I used to be there on the Trump rallies — ten, twenty, thirty, forty thousand folks chanting for the primary time within the historical past of politics globally, ‘We love you. We love you.’ As a result of he did so many nice issues for America. Securing our borders — not utterly, however higher than anyone. Negotiating vitality independence, which, by the best way — simply an remark from the guitar participant who did not go to varsity; [I was] too busy studying necessary stuff — vitality independence is definitely higher than vitality dependency. Which is why we heard ‘I really like you’ on the Donald Trump rallies. Unprecedented attendance.
“So what occurred on January sixth is that the households that supported Donald Trump — ‘We love you. We love you’; unprecedented numbers, unprecedented chanting — they determined to do a peaceable protest on the U.S. Capitol, however they have been prodded on by this Epps prick, a government-fed instigator and agent provocateur,” Nugent mentioned, referencing the baseless declare that riots have been stoked by a Trump supporter from Arizona who was falsely portrayed by some right-wing media retailers as an undercover FBI agent. “On January sixth of 2021, the conservative households who would not break a window, would not damage a soul, had no weapons, had no violence, had not completed any rioting or arson, not like Seattle and Portland and Black Lives Matter and Antifa… However you realize, after they went to the Capitol, they have been provoked and prodded by brokers of the Federal Bureau of Investigation — allegedly. And that is the place the violence erupted, that is the place the vandalism occurred, that is the place the criminality happened — by the hands of Democrat undercover punks carrying Trump regalia. These weren’t Trump supporters that did the violence and the vandalism — that was Black Lives Matter and Antifa and Federal Bureau of Investigation agent provocateurs. It is on movie.
“I’ve had these debates with dirtbags, and a number of the dirtbags are actually near me,” Ted added. “‘Effectively, you are a maniac as a result of you may’t see that these have been Trump supporters breaking…’ No, it wasn’t. These have been Democrat and Federal Bureau of Investigation vegetation and agent provocateurs. In truth, the Trump supporters have been saying, ‘Do not breach the wall.’ ‘Do not break the home windows,’ ‘Do not break in,’ ‘Do not go in’ on movie — the movie that we have been allowed to see.
“So thank God for January sixth of 2021, as a result of it was the Democrat gangsters that did all of the violence and vandalism.”
FBI director Christopher A. Wray testified repeatedly to the Senate Judiciary Committee that there was no proof that Antifa, anarchists or provocateurs who did not help Trump have been concerned within the Capitol siege.
As results of the riot, Congress was compelled to quickly halt its counting of the 2020 Electoral Faculty votes, a course of that finally licensed the election of President Joe Biden.
Sicknick, who was sprayed with a chemical substance throughout the riot, later collapsed and died.
Babbitt, who was a vocal supporter of Trump, was shot as soon as by an officer as she tried to climb by means of the damaged glass window of a door to the foyer of the Capitol, which had been barricaded from the within with furnishings. Her household instructed information retailers after her dying that Babbitt had gone to Washington on January 6 to protest Congress’s certification of President Joe Biden‘s Electoral Faculty victory.
