Sen. Tom Cotton: Jerry Nadler Calling Antifa a Myth 'Like Baghdad Bob Denying...American Tanks in Baghdad'


Some politicians deserve the honor of being called outright clowns, but few deserve the honor more than House Judiciary Chariman Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) after he clearly stated that the violent communist group Antifa carrying out violent acts in Portland “is a myth that’s being spread only in Washington D.C.”

Enter Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.).

Cotton joined “Fox & Friends” on Monday to talk about the violent unrest going on in places like Portland and Seattle. At one point during the interview, Cotton was shown the exchange between YouTuber Austen “Fleccas” Fletcher and Nadler in which Nadler made his now-infamous blunder. Cotton didn’t mince words in response.

“Jerry Nadler denying Antifa is in Portland is kind of like ‘Baghdad Bob’ denying there were American tanks in Baghdad back in the day,” Cotton said. “I mean, you can just look at the videos posted in recent weeks. People are carrying the flag of Antifa and wearing t-shirts and spray painting it on buildings.”


Heck, you don’t even need to go back weeks to find videos of violent “activists” showering Portland with their brand of hate.

The following video was released by journalist Andy Ngo on Monday documenting the previous night’s “festivities”:


They really look like “peaceful protesters,” don’t they?
