PolitiFact rules Laura Ingraham's claim that that protesters flooded Tenn. Capitol last week 'false'

As you probably recall, last week, a few days after the deadly mass shooting at Covenant School in Nashville, a sea of angry protesters stormed the Tennessee Capitol demanding stricter gun control laws (with some stuff about how Republicans need to stop being so mean to trans kids sprinkled in, of course).


Well, apparently last Friday on her Fox News show, Laura Ingraham played video from the protest — or insurrection, if you prefer to call it — with a chyron that read “Leftist Agitators Storm State Capitols.” Ingraham herself noted that the footage showed protesters flooding the Tennessee State Capitol.

Meta took issue with this alleged misinformation, and PolitiFact evidently thinks they made the right call:

More from PolitiFact:

It showed Tennessee state Rep. Justin Jones, D-Nashville, holding a megaphone and a “protect kids not guns” sign, flanked by state Reps. Justin J. Pearson, D-Memphis, and Gloria Johnson, D-Knoxville. The three lawmakers took over the lectern on the House floor and led chants echoed by the protesters gathered in the galleries, which are open to the public.

“The people on the floor were elected officials,” said Wes Moster, a spokesperson for Tennessee’s Department of Safety and Homeland Security, which oversees Tennessee Capitol security.

PolitiFact found no evidence that shows protesters made their way onto the House floor.

Fox News did not respond to a request for comment.


Fox News’ only comment to PolitiFact should be “Get bent.”

No, really. That’s the perfect word for what this is:

The video showed three Democrats, all elected state representatives, who on March 30 disrupted the legislative session to call for action against gun violence. There’s no evidence unauthorized protesters made their way onto the House floor, however.

We rate this claim False.

“False.” Not even “Half True” or “Mostly False”, but just straight-up “False.”

PolitiFact isn’t just blind; they’re willfully blind. And they think we don’t see it.

“Authorized protesters” = “left-wing protesters” = “protesters PolitiFact agrees with.”

Idiots. PolitiFact is a cesspool of partisan hackery and abject incompetence.


Classic PolitiFact.

Don’t worry. They won’t stop carrying that water, even if it means they have to crawl on their bellies like the worms they are.
