VA Lt. Gov. Winsome Sears Decries Protesters “Destroying Your Buildings,” “Showing Up With Helmets…Gas Masks…Bear Sprays,” Assaulting Police. Nope, She’s Not Talking About the 1/6/21 Violent Insurrection.

But she certainly COULD be!

Earlier today, Republican Lt. Gov. Winsome Sears was on Fox “News” (actually, right-wing propaganda 24/7). In the following video clip, Sears decries the college campus protesters (and yes, people have the right to express their views, but NO – vandalism, destruction of college property, hate speech, etc. are 100% unacceptable, as President Biden stated yesterday).

As you listen to what Sears has to say, it’s hard not to flash back to what Trump-supporting violent insurrectionists did on January 6, 2021. To her credit, on the evening of that terrible day, Sears decried the violence, tweeting, “Folks, this is not the way to fight. Come home to your families! Let the courts decide! We survived the Civil War; we will survive this!

So now that the evil, criminal, treasonous individual – Donald Trump – who incited those violent insurrectionists, is yet AGAIN – disgustingly – the Republican nominee for president, perhaps it’s time for Republicans to recall how horrified many of them were on 1/6/21 and to act accordingly, by rejecting Trump and forming a temporary pro-democracy coalition with Democrats and small-d democrats of all types. Might someone like Winsome Sears, who hasn’t endorsed Trump, be willing to join such a coalition?  Doubtful, for sure, but it certainly would be a powerful, pro-American thing to do at this perilous point in our history.

With that, see below for video of Sears’ comments, followed by some images from January 6, 2021.

“You don’t negotiate with people who are destroying your buildings. You don’t negotiate with people who have, you see them showing up with helmets, they’re showing up with gas masks. We have seen here in Virginia where you have a pickup trucks dropping off rocks and sticks, bear sprays and all of that. Police were assaulted. Have we not learned anything?”

“You don’t negotiate with people who are destroying your buildings.”

“You don’t negotiate with people who have, you see them showing up with helmets, they’re showing up with gas masks.”

“you have a pickup trucks dropping off rocks and sticks, bear sprays and all of that.”

“Police were assaulted.”
