“[The breach of the Capitol on Wednesday] It’s disgusting. It’s unpatriotic. It runs counter to everything we stand for,” said Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) on “Sunday Morning Futures” with Maria Bartiromo.
Rubio said that groups like QAnon, white supremacists, Proud Boys and others were able to infiltrate the protesters spreading ridiculous conspiracies.
“So it’s completely unacceptable. 90 percent of the country or more would agree with what I just said. The overwhelming majority of people who voted for Donald Trump would agree with everything I just said. And and it was a moment where we could sort of say, this is a nice guy. I mean, our country can’t keep doing these kinds of things and unify the country. That’s not what happened.”
“Unfortunately, the left has decided this is an opportunity to destroy the right,” continued Florida senator.
“So if you ever voted for Donald Trump, if you ever supported anything he did, you are just as guilty as the people who went into that Capitol.”
“And this is also important for them to now go and put pressure on social media companies to literally not just erase the president, erased everybody. We’re now living in a country where four or five companies, unelected, unaccountable, have the power, a monopoly power to decide we’re going to wipe people out. We’re going to just erase them from any sort of digital platform, whether it’s selling things and the like. Even if you don’t like Donald Trump, that should be concerning, that they have that power.”
“It’s also very cynical, by the way. OK, Facebook, Twitter, these are not moral champions here. The reason why these guys are doing it is because the Democrats are about to take power and they view this as a way to get on their good side to avoid any sort of restrictions or any sort of laws being passed that hurt them. So it’s unfortunate that instead of unifying this right now, Biden, the Democrats have chosen to use this as an opportunity to talk about ridiculous things like let’s impeach a president who isn’t going to be even in office in about nine days.”
