Lying, and then lying yet again


To the editor:

(re: “Espaillat reflects on Jan. 6 anniversary,” Jan. 12)

In your recent Political Arena column, Congressman Adriano Espaillat was quoted as making the following statement: “Duly elected members of Congress and their staff were in grave danger, and working-class Americans who dedicated their lives to protecting our nation’s Capitol were killed.”

The congressman, by his intentional and purposely untrue use of the passion-arousing word “killed,” exposes himself as a contemptible, despicable liar who, like so many others of his Democrat colleagues, knowingly and brazenly lie to push their false narratives toward their gullible targets. Specifically, those so-called “intellectuals” — those fools who get their information from corrupt media like The New York Times, CNN and MSNBC.

People die from one of the following:  natural causes, accidents, suicides or murder.  The dedicated people referred to by Mr. Espaillat in the first paragraph as being “killed” due to the Jan. 6 riot consisted of five Capitol police officers. Their causes of death are listed below.

Police Officer Brian Sicknick died on Jan. 7 of natural causes, and the four other officers all committed suicide within days or months of Jan. 6. No officer was “killed” — as the meaning of the word “killed” is commonly understood. Adriano Espaillat knows this very well, as does President Biden and other Democratic politicians who continue to push this.

George Santos and Richard Blumenthal lied for political reasons — to get elected.  Adriano Espaillat lies and continues to lie for political reasons — to deceive the public and push a phony narrative. 

They are all lowlifes, but Congressman Espaillat, by far, is the worst!
