Lansing, MI — As previously reported, the FBI rightly busted up a plot against Michigan governor Gretchen “Wuhan” Whitmer, to allegedly overthrow or kidnap her by an “extremist militia group.”
The FBI did a great job taking down the group and it sounded like a serious danger to Whitmer if they did what they are alleged to have done, so it’s good they got them.
But that’s where the good, warm and fuzzy feeling goes away. Why? Because “Wuhan” Whitmer sounded off about the plot, she immediately tried to falsely link the president and the Proud Boys to the event.
Neither of which had anything to do with it. However, according to Whitmer, Trump had sent a “rallying cry” to “action.”
There are a host of problems wrong with her authoritarian tendencies, her, and her assertions.
- The Proud Boys are a different group and Trump has nothing to do with them and they aren’t “white supremacists.”
- It turns out, in checking out the folks behind the alleged plot, one of the alleged ringleaders, Brandon Caserta, would appear to be an anarchist. Not only that, he’s anti-Trump. Check the flag in the background.
This is a video of Brandon Caserta, one of the ringleaders of the group of men arrested for a plot where the group planned to kidnap Governor Gretchen Whitmer. Caserta has an anarchist flag behind him and in YouTube videos trashes police. He’s not a Republican, he’s an anarchist. pic.twitter.com/J1vE2qGYL7

Wow! This is big. Brandon Caserta, one of the ringleaders of the group of men arrested for a plot where the group planned to kidnap Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, hated President Trump too!

Caserta called Trump a “tyrant” and an “enemy.” These are words of affection or terms of endearment from a Trump supporter or someone who is any way operating based on Trump or at his urging.
“Trump is not your friend, dude,” Caserta says. “And it amazes me that people actually believe that when he’s shown over and over and over again that he’s a tyrant. Every single person that works for government is your enemy, dude.”
Once again proving to be in the bag of Democratic politicians and anti-Trump, this isn’t what the media or Whitmer and the Democrats are reporting, they seem to want to paint these folks as if they were on the right.
The Detroit News implied a connection to the Boogaloo Boys all because Caserta was wearing a Hawaiian shirt in a video. However, they apparently missed or blatantly ignored the anarchist flag behind him on full display in the video.
Additionally, they don’t explain that Boogaloos include leftists, anarchists and are very anti-government and anti-police, having far more in common ideologically with BLM, Inc. and ANTIFA than any conservative or “right-leaning” group. There’s a basic failure to understand that dimension of the Boogaloo Boys.
It doesn’t take much to find the Caserta video with the anarchist flag or to track down that Boogaloo Boys included leftist anarchists. But that doesn’t seem to be something that most media wants to point out because it would blow the argument they were on the right.
Naturally, the MSM and Democrats had no problem trying to thread the needle that President Trump was secretly holding meetings with these guys in between briefings with the Secretary of State, CIA, et al.
If the president read his intel briefings and understood the dogma of white nationalist groups, he'd realize that language like "LIBERATE MICHIGAN!" is read as tacit permission — if not explicit encouragement — for militias to take action. pic.twitter.com/SYH0QzTSXI

CNN commentator Keith Boykin laid out what he indicated was Trump’s history of radicalizing individuals.
“1. Trump calls CNN “the enemy of the people.” Cesar Sayoc sends pipe bombs to CNN,” Boykin wrote. “2. Trump tweets about “anarchists and agitators.” Kyle Rittenhouse kills two people in Kenosha. 3. Trump tweets “LIBERATE MICHIGAN.” Six men try to kidnap the Governor of Michigan.”

If he’s not careful, Mr. Boykin might find himself included in the libel lawsuit Rittenhouse’s attorney, L. Lin Wood, has filed against the Biden campaign. Perhaps he has forgotten about his colleague and the highest paid employee at CNN, Mr. Nicholas Sandmann.
Others drew the same conclusions. “Maybe just maybe trumps explosive rhetoric has explosive consequences?” Daily Beast editor at large Molly Jong-Fast said.
Sadly, the media and various Democrats pull from page one of their “Blame Trump Playbook.”
When are they going to learn their lesson and actually wait on the facts before blaming the President? You’d think after more than four years of false accusations and bad reporting they’d finally get it. Time will tell.
