Steve Cohen Warns About White National Guard in DC

Tennessee is one of the most conservative states in the US, but it also has Rep. Steve Cohen representing it in the House. And Cohen went full kook in a CNN interview on Monday morning. He warned about those National Guard members protecting Washington DC during the Biden inauguration because they’re mostly white males or something. And you know what that means, don’t you?

That means there are probably a host of Trump supporters among them, and they are The Danger.

Cohen  said:

“The [National] Guard is 90 some-odd percent male; and only about 20 percent of white males voted for Biden, you’ve got to figure the guard is more conservative… there are probably not more than 25% of the people that are there protecting us that voted for Biden. The other 75% are in the class.. who might want to do something.”

Cohen also referenced Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi and Egyptian President Anwar Sadat “who were killed by their own people.” Apparently that’s proof.

So Steve Cohen doesn’t trust the National Guard to protect his sorry Democrat ass. I wonder what he thinks of the active duty military?

Not only that, but Cohen has effectively called for white men, especially those of conservative beliefs, to be suspected of being terrorists.

Ah, but that’s not all. During that same CNN interview Cohen raised suspicions about freshman Rep. Lauren Boebert, a Colorado conservative, whom he claimed he saw taking “a large group” for a tour in the days prior to the Capitol riots. They might be . . . gasp! QAnon-types whom she was helping to scope out the Capitol.

“We saw Congressman Boebert taking people for a tour sometime after [January] 3rd and before the 6th. I don’t remember the date. We were walking in a tunnel and we saw her … and she had a large group with her.”

CNN’s Jim Sciutto asked Steve Cohen if he knew of any visitors with ties to the riots. Cohen backed off, saying that he had no direct knowledge. But “she’s not on the home team,” he said.

Lauren Boebert was having none of this, however:

These aren’t the only shenanigans that Steve Cohen has tried to pull, either. In June of 2020, he introduced an impeachment probe against Attorney General William Barr, which was something that even Nancy Pelosi pooh-poohed.

Speaking of Bill Barr, do you remember that time when Steve Cohen brought a bucket of KFC and a plastic chicken to troll Barr during a hearing? The message was that “Bill Barr is a chicken,” Cohen told reporters.

Yuk, yuk, yuk.

However, the joke was an epic fail. Comedian John Oliver — no conservative — smirked:

“Yeah we get it. You’ve made that painfully obvious.”

While the black Trump-supporting duo of Diamond and Silk turned the racist tables on Steve Cohen:

“He’s racially insensitive, that’s what I think. Can you imagine if that was a Republican doing that to a Democrat? Just think about that for a moment.”

Tennesseans, you have a grand state, full of history and natural beauty. I’ve been there many times. But surely you can do better than this crackpot who doesn’t trust the National Guard, thinks conservative white men could be terrorists, suspects a colleague of planning a riot, and delivers a cheap theatric stunt on the House floor.

    I don’t think it is too paranoid these days to suspect that the Harris Regime is actually scheduled to start at 12:01 Washington DC time. With an assassin conveniently killed soon after by an “outraged citizen.”

    • Scott says:

      They did it to Kennedy, why wouldn’t they pull the same thing with Biden.. Nothing is beyond the depths the left would sink to in order to advance their agenda.

  • Steve G. says:

    Why should we believe this antique, cis-heteronormative, racist?

    From Instapundit:

    “Nothing says ‘normal, legitimate election’ like a swearing-in behind 12 feet of razor wire and 25,000 troops that you’re not sure you can trust.”


  • Cameron says:

    They’re going to be Sad Pandas when the inauguration happens without any violence.

  • Russ Wood says:

    Well, since ‘they’ planted the Mall with flags so that ordinary American citizens couldn’t get there, I have to assume that the ‘optics’ of a few hundred Biden supporters in the whole expanse just MIGHT have given the game away! But look at the emptiness of the Biden ‘s “Triumphal Parade” versus the masses of Floridians waving flags to welcome Donald returning home!
