Days after meeting with the Jan. 6 House committee, a former Trump administration aide published a bizarre, sexist and homophobic tirade on Telegram where he attacks the ongoing investigation and the committee’s star witnesses, calling the operation “anti-white.”

In the rambling 27-minute recording, Garrett Ziegler, who served as an aide to ex-trade adviser Peter Navarro, accuses the politicians leading the Jan. 6 investigation of being “Bolsheviks” who “hate the American founders and most white people.” (The committee, it’s worth noting, is headed up by Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.), who is Black.) “This is a Bolshevistic anti-white campaign. If you can’t see that, your eyes are freaking closed,” Ziegler says. “I am the least racist person that many of you have ever met, by the way. I have no bigotry. I just try to see the world for where it is.”

Apparently Zieg (heil Zieg?) forgot that if you have to explain your statement in the face of it then it must be your belief and not a mistake in saying it. We should not forget the lessons of the past from the Civil War up to and including the red scare of Joe McCarthy. It is unfortunate that we had a Radical right long before the Left became radical. Now we have a similar situation that preceded the “Civil War” with the stakes being much higher.
