So he's saying that "dishonest," "left-wing," and "liar" are terms one would not normally expect to see next to one another? Because they're contradictory in some way? Like someone being left-wing would not generally be expected to conform to the characteristics of being dishonest or being a liar?

See, this is why you need to pay attention in English class. You end up accidentally complimenting people.

Maybe he thinks "oxymoron" is a compound word that implies someone has the characteristics of an ox and a moron.

Or, more perhaps more appropriate to the time, combines the attributes of an oxy addict and a moron.

Although that would mean he's making fun of oxy addicts. That seems cruel. I wonder how many oxy addicts and families of oxy addicts live in his home district. It would be a shame if they heard about how he's belittling their suffering. People struggling with the horrors of addiction deserve more respect.

He's not the first person I've heard recently who appears to have used "oxymoron" to mean "redundant." Strange.

Mo Brooks is not a smart man
 
2021-10-28 1:09:38 PM  
""Conservative" accuses someone of his own failings" is about the most boring and cliched story I can think of at this point, but "conservatives" can't get enough of it.

The voters just eat that shiat up with a spoon. They love nasty, dishonest pieces of garbage like Brooks who will say anything at all to pretend he's right - he represents them.

Yeah this asshole is in the lead to replace Shelby as our senator. We'll have Coach Tuberville and Mo(ron) Brooks representing us in DC. God has abandoned Alabama.

I wore vest at lawful Elipse rally...

So... he wore the vest on the day of the illegal insurrection attempt prior to their violent assault on the Capitol that he helped rile up but Colbert is a "dishonest liar" because...

*consults tweet*

He didn't wear it later when the insurrectionists were doing their thing?

And that is supposed to what... convince people he isn't guilty AF?

Cos yeah, ...no.

Just no.

2021 Capitol attack

Brooks was the first member of Congress to announce his objection to the January 6, 2021 certification of the Electoral College results.[141][142] In December he organized a series of White House meetings between Trump and a dozen Republican lawmakers to strategize about how to overturn the election results on January 6.[143]

On that date, he was the first speaker at a pro-Trump rally. In the speech he harshly criticized other Republicans in Congress for not aiding him in his efforts to overturn the election[144] and said, "Today is the day American patriots start taking down names and kicking ass."[141] At the rally Trump gave an hourlong speech claiming that the election had been stolen and urging people to go to the U.S. Capitol. The crowd did so, and shortly thereafter, pro-Trump protesters stormed the Capitol.[144]

Later that night, Congress reassembled to certify the Electoral College vote; Brooks raised an objection to Nevada's votes, but it did not succeed because no senator joined him in objecting.[145]

Brooks later said the rioters who stormed the Capitol were associated with Antifa, citing a Washington Times report that was later retracted.[144][146]

So.. according to him.. when the attack on the capitol started, as they broke into the building to kill members of Congress.. he took his vest off.

Yeah, he's lying.

Almost like we're dealing with a severely stunted, child-like hive-mind with sociopathic genetics behind it.

Oh, I'll bet the 1/6 Committee has receipts, Mo.

And keep deflecting off on staff, asshole, the real focus is on you. And you  know it.

Sounds to me like he was in on it.

2021-10-28 1:20:25 PM  
Why take off the vest as people are breaking down doors and smashing windows of a building in which you were?

Unless you knew ahead of time they weren't targeting you.

In which case, why?  That seems awfully prescient for someone smack dab in the middle of a riot, no?

I'm sorry, did he ask someone to change the orbit of the Earth?  No?  Then Louie Gohmert's still kicking everyone's ass in the race to be stupidest person in Congress.  Not that it wasn't a nice try, though.

Not necessarily. He may have taken the vest off because he was in on it, and knew he was not in danger.

The fact that he also let a comedian know that something got to him is just icing on the stupidity cake.

I thought so too. The thing is that doing so would probably get you assaulted, since violent cavemen are overrepresented within the "outspoken Trumper" group.
