WATCH: Former GOP Candidate: It Wasn’t Antifa, I Was On The Ground At Capitol, I’m Proud
A former Republican candidate wants Donald Trump’s supporters to stop blaming — or rather, crediting — antifa for the invasion and destruction at the Capitol building on Wednesday. She’s broadcasting to assure the public, she was there when it happened, and she’s proud.
DeAnna Lorraine, who once ran for Congress hoping to unseat Nancy Pelosi, and was later hired to work for Alex Jones’ Infowars network, says she was at the Capitol, and that the people who stormed the building were definitely Trump supporters — or, as she says, “American patriots.” In fact, she says that if you’re not proud of what happened at the Capitol building Wednesday, you’re not a real American patriot — and she encourages more of it.

“We need more of what happened yesterday, not less, and do not let the media brainwash you into thinking yesterday was some bad or evil or shameful thing. When I look at the images of what happened, and the videos, because I was on the ground and I saw what happened and what we went through, I am proud. I have never felt more pride in my heart and soul than yesterday, and by seeing these images. And you should be proud too, and if you’re not you were never a real patriot, and you were never down for the cause and never wanted to fight.
No one should be ashamed of what happened, and no one should be blaming antifa for what happened. American Patriots did this and it’s a good thing, it’s not a bad thing.”
Lorraine’s show had been pulled off the air, recently leaving her to wonder if she had perhaps been unceremoniously fired from the conspiracy network, but it seems with the attack on the Capitol, she’s broadcasting again.
