As more insurrectionists who engaged in the US Capitol Attack on January 6, 2021 are arrested and facing court dates while in prison, a new defense for their seditionist behavior is emerging.
Now the claim is that they were manipulated by the influence of Fox News Channel—what is being called “Foxitus” or “Foxmania”.
This is laughable as it demonstrates their ignorance and demonstrates how easily manipulated they are by lies and conspiracy theories.
It also shows how Fox News Channel, and also OANN (One America News Network) and Newsmax TV, and a multitude of other right wing websites poison the atmosphere and lie incessantly about the truth regarding the Presidential Election of 2020, promoting the “Big Lie” that Donald Trump won.
However, ignorance and prejudice is no excuse, and all of the insurrectionists should be prosecuted and sentenced to ten years or more in prison as traitors to America and its democracy!
