Paul Gosar: MTG In Lifts - The Bulwark
An insurrection-planning, white-nationalist-collaborating congressman remains uncensored and unchallenged. Why?
8:03 AM · Mar 5, 2021


A congressman plotted with domestic terrorists to plan the deadly January 6 “Stop the Steal” rally with the stated purpose of putting “maximum pressure” on Congress to vote to overturn the election.

This same member of Congress spoke at a gathering put on by avowed white nationalists that was explicitly designed as a counter to the weak-tea MAGA stuff at CPAC. Previously, this member said that George Soros planned the Charlottesville alt-right rally as a false flag to hurt Donald Trump. He proposed that Joe Biden was planning to fake a disease in order to allow Kamala Harris to take over the presidency. He also claimed (repeatedly) that the Dominion Voting Systems algorithm rigged the election.

We’re not talking about one of the newly minted, Q-Anon friendly, MAGA representatives.

We’re talking about Arizona’s Paul Gosar: MTG in lifts.

For the past decade, either by design or luck, Gosar has managed to slide through the crevices of our political outrage industry, his conspiracy-mongering and race-baiting always falling just short of the imaginary line over which a politician becomes a national joke.

Sure, Gosar was widely mocked when his siblings taped a withering ad in support of his opponent during the last election. And at home in Arizona, he and his conspiratorial MAGA comrades Andy Biggs, Kelli Ward, and Sheriff Joe Arpaio have gained notoriety and plunged the party into the abyss. But the space laser of outrage has never sparked a Gosar firestorm large enough to turn him into a household name.

1. I'm thinking the ones who have been flying under the radar...

Could be the most dangerous for a number of reasons.
