Insurrectionist Commissioner Couy Griffin Rage-Quits Politics
Otero County Commissioner Couy Griffin says he won’t seek reelection.
It COULD have something to do with his trial for his part in storming the U.S. Capitol beginning later this month. But, Griffin says, it’s actually because he’s lost his faith in America. “My faith in the political system is pretty much nonexistent”, said the insurrectionist who tried in January 2021 to subvert and overthrow the American system of government.
Griffin, a Republican and founder of Cowboys for Trump, denies that he knowingly entered barricaded areas of the Capitol on January 6, 2021. This is despite a photo that shows him LITERALLY WALKING OVER A BARRICADE.
Griffin was part of the mob that, according to the criminal charges against him, entered the Capitol grounds “with the intent of disrupting government”. Griffin and his fellows did not succeed on January 6th, which should actually RENEW loyal Americans’ faith in their country and its system of governance.
Couy Griffin is disappointed in “politics”. Many of the folks of Otero County are disappointed that their elected official took part on January 6th, said “the only good Democrat is a dead democrat” and passionately argued that black Americans should, “go back to Africa”.
Griffin, who spent three weeks in jail after being arrested by the F.B.I., says he considers his involvement on January 6th as “a badge of honor”.
It should probably go without saying that Couy was a die-hard anti-masker who, given the choice to put on a mask, opted to forgo visitation with his young son.
A true man of principle, hopefully, Griffin will receive the verdict he deserves in his upcoming trial.
