The Washington Post reports:
Three weeks after hundreds of people stormed the U.S. Capitol in a violent rampage that left one police officer and four rioters dead and led to more than 100 arrests of the pro-Trump rioters, the House delivered an article of impeachment to the Senate, charging the former president with inciting the mob.
In Oregon, the state Republican Party isn’t just backing former president Donald Trump — its official position falsely claims that the entire episode was a “false flag” operation staged to discredit the GOP and silence Trump’s supporters.

I get that Oregon and Hawaii have really weak GOPs and so the people who rise to the top of them tend to be marginal 8kun incel freaks who thrive on psycho conspiracies, but what happened to Arizona’s GOP? Horse kick them in the head?

Portland is a dumpster fire of left-wing insanity & the Oregon GOP is spending its time pushing conspiracy theories and censuring apostates in their ranks. Meanwhile: Zero statewide offices & small minorities in both legislative chambers. Doing great, guys! https://t.co/3aLGTdzVx4
