Monday night on Tucker Carlson, Aaron Babbitt demanded the name and identification of the Capitol officer who shot his wife, Ashli Babbitt. There is no denying by anyone—including Fox News—that Ashli Babbitt was shot while trying to enter into the lobby in front of the speaker’s office via a smashed window. There is no denying she was part of an imminent threat. While Carlson and others scream about her defense and in her support, they do so with videos showing her deranged attack inside of the Capitol, elevating the act of a terrorist. For those who have forgotten because of the way it is portrayed by conservatives, this is Ashli Babbitt.
Ashli Babbitt did not comply in any way. She rushed and put people’s lives in danger. She was part of domestic terrorism. Do not give me the excuse that she was part of the American military. You know who else was part of the American military? Timothy McVeigh, the Oklahoma City Bomber.
Ashli Babbitt didn’t comply with the orders of an officer—have we heard that before? Here, it was with actual threats of physical harm, an act of terror by those in the room and self-defense. Good enough for the radicals? Nope.
And what happens if the FBI or others did release the name of the officer? What happens? Ask Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, who continues to receive death threats.
Let’s be honest, the attempt to get out the name of the officer has one outcome: it will inspire someone to threaten and harm an officer who did his job in protecting people from immediate danger. So much for backing the blue.
There is only one person responsible for Ashli Babbitt’s death. That name is Ashli Babbitt.
