Ashli Babbitt was in the wrong place at the wrong time but nobody seems to be asking the tough questions about how she got there and why nobody else got the same treatment she did. The 35-year-old Air Force veteran and fervent Donald Trump supporter was fatally shot in the shoulder by Capitol Security as she climbed in through a broken window. CNN loves to rub salt in conservative wounds so they went from calling the deplorable martyr someone who “got what she deserved” to something even worse.
“Q” sent Ashli Babbitt
There is a lot of rhetoric flying thick and fast over the actions which occurred during the January 6 Barbarian Invasion of the nation’s Capitol and it’s hard to sort out what’s fact and what’s propaganda. When it comes to Ashli Babbitt, the propaganda flows freely on both sides. She’s special because her death was filmed live and in color. All it took was a single bullet to the shoulder to end the life of an innocent patriot who was caught up in a wave of bizarrely staged events.
The unnamed lieutenant who fired at Ashli as she attempted to “crawl through a broken window leading to the Speaker’s Lobby outside the US House of Representatives’ chamber” has been cleared of criminal wrongdoing. To the right she’s a patriotic martyr. To CNN and the progressive left, she’s a “domestic terrorist who got what she deserved.” The truth, as always, lies in the shadowy gray area somewhere in between.
To liberal talking head Bill Maher, Ashli Babbitt “died for a second Trump term even though that would have solved exactly none of her problems.” Her image, he notes, “adorns a black ‘martyr flag’ with the Capitol in the background that is being circulated on right-wing social media.” A liberal European analyst of the far-right declares, she “is going to be used for many, many years. The more they mention her, the more dangerous her story is going to be.”
Her brother and mother have different images of the woman they knew. They see her as “an unarmed woman who spent more than a decade in service to her country and who had no previous criminal convictions.” Michelle and Roger Witthoeft gave some needed personal insight into what happened. Their observations lend credibility to the theory that Deep State agents posing as the shadowy “QAnon” group baited and teased vulnerable people into staging a false-flag operation on “Q.” “She was a person,” her mother said, “her voice cracking with emotion,” as CNN dutifully notes.
Babbitt spent four years on active duty in the Air Force and was discharged as a senior airman in 2008, when she decided to Vote for Barack Obama. She continued her career as “an Air Force reservist from 2008 to 2010 and in the Air National Guard from 2010 to 2016.” By then she had realized the error of her ways and converted to conservativism. Tours of duty in Afghanistan, Iraq, and the UAE probably had something to do with her shifting opinions. One thing is certain, she considered herself a patriot.
“While with the Air National Guard, she was a member of the 113th Security Forces Squadron of the DC Air National Guard based at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland.” That’s special because the whole mission of that unit is to “protect the DC area during periods of civil unrest.” That’s why they’re called “the Capital Guardians.” She should have known better than to climb through that window. It’s alright, she thought, everyone else is doing it. The problem was that the security guard on the other side wasn’t in on the plan.
Informants and operatives
Sneaky federal agents looking to groom informants and undercover operatives often look to those like Babbitt with military training in their background and some sort of financial hardship that they can leverage to their advantage.
It seems that the pool service she owned with her brother and husband wasn’t doing real well and had become deeply indebted. Her brother relates that it wasn’t as bad as it seemed and would have been solved soon.
As her social media habits started gravitating toward the conservative side, Babbitt began to identify more and more with the messages put out by “QAnon.”
Observers note that the ideals promoted by “Q” are especially tailored to push the hot-buttons of unstable and easily manipulated radical types, who can be introduced to one another and groomed to carry out domestic terror operations. Ones with dud explosives and teams of agents waiting in ambush to thwart live on TV in time for the evening news. Just like the Barbarian Invasion.
As the acquittal of the security officer proves, the guard had every right to shoot Ashli Babbitt. The big discrepancy is why didn’t the other guards shoot anyone. Apparently the unnamed lieutenant didn’t get the memo to let the invaders in. When FBI agents came knocking at the family’s door a few days later, they were shocked when the family told them she basically just wandered in with the crowd.
They “seemed skeptical that she’d traveled to DC all on her own and managed to find herself at the center of the melee without any help or planning.” When they combed through her social media posts, it was clear, Q sent her. The last thing they want to do is uncover who’s behind that mask because it’s likely to turn out to be Christopher Wray himself.
