Idaho GOP Rep Claims Obama Staged Charlottesville Nazi Riot

He hasn’t been President for almost a year now, but Republicans are still desperately attacking President Obama. On Sunday, Idaho state Representative Bryan Zollinger decided to share an rather interesting article from the ironically-named “American Thinker” claiming that President Obama and George Soros are working in cahoots to destroy Donald Trump by manufacturing Nazi rallies or something.

The conflagration in Charlottesville is beginning to feel like a set-up, perhaps weeks or months in the planning,” the Thinker article says. Actually, it says a lot and all of it is stupid:

We know that Obama and his inner circle have set up a war room in his D.C. home to plan and execute resistance to the Trump administration and his legislative agenda.  None of these people care about the American people, or the fact that Trump won the election because millions of people voted for him.  They suggest those deranged persons who gathered in Charlottesville as members of one of several fringe groups, Unite The Right, neo-Nazi or KKK, are Trump’s base — as if there are more than a few hundred or thousand of them throughout the country.  There are not enough of them to affect anything or elect anyone.  Those who are actual members of these small groups are most likely mentally ill to one degree or another. Trump has disavowed them all, over and over and over again.  Liz Crokin, an entertainment reporter and no fan of Trump, wrote in 2016 that she had covered Trump for over a decade and  in all that time, no one had ever suggested he was racist, homophobic, or sympathetic to white supremacists.  That all began after he announced his campaign.  It is as fake a narrative as the “Russia collusion” meme.  The left set out to defame Trump from moment one.  When he won the election, their shock, dismay and intolerance for every opinion that differs from their own shifted into hysterical overdrive.   They mounted their crusade to destroy his presidency on Nov. 9, 2016.

What if Signer and McAuliffe, in conjunction with Antifa and other Soros-funded groups like Black Lives Matter, planned and orchestrated what happened in Charlottesville and meant for events to unfold roughly as they did?  If they did,  it was icing on their sick, immoral cake.  If this was all part of a plan, one would hope those behind it suffer for their part in and responsibility for the tragic death of a young woman, Heather Heyer.  The “founder” of Unite The Right, Jason Kessler,  was an activist with Occupy Wall Street and Obama supporter.

According to the article, Obama worked with Soros, Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, and Charlottesville Mayor Mike Signer like they are the f*cking Legion of Doom to get a bunch of “demented racists” on “both sides” together so they can point and laugh while claiming it was all Trump’s fault.

“So were the events of Saturday the result of a despicable plan to further undermine Trump?” the author concludes. “There was plenty of time and Charlottesville is the ‘capital of resistance.’ If it was, it was evil and deadly and the people involved need to be prosecuted. Or is this a wild conspiracy theory? Perhaps. But the pieces fit.”

Now, no actual “thinking” person would believe such drivel, but Zollinger isn’t exactly a “thinking” person.

When challenged about his ridiculous share, Zollinger went the “I’m not saying it’s true BUT…” route often used by conservatives when they get caught making an off-the-wall-double-what-the-f*ck-bonkers claim like this.

“I’m not saying it is true, but I am suggesting that it is completely plausible,” Zollinger responded, adding that the protesters are “Soros funded” and that “we know Donald Trump is not a racist.” No, buddy, we really don’t. Moving on…

Zollinger says that he is “glad to see someone out there asking people to think for themselves and use some logic and reason rather than spout what the media, otherwise known as the communications branch of the Democratic Party is selling.”

After facing criticism from anyone who can operate a spoon with a minimum of novice-level proficiency, Zollinger now admits that the claims in the unsourced, speculative garbage article are “probably not true.”
