WATCH: Fox News Tries to Make the Arrest of the Oath Keepers About Antifa

The current Conservative response to any kind of controversy almost always contains the phrase, ‘what about’? Politicians and members of the media have decided that is the best way to deflect from the wrong doing of Donald Trump supporters.

On Thursday, 11 members of the Oath Keepers were arrested for seditious conspiracy. It is pretty hard to defend their actions, but the charges create a perfect opportunity for whataboutism. Fox correspondent Dave Spunt took that tack while discussing the charges today.

Spunt told Bill Hemmer:

“According to the indictment, during the melee, one of the Oath Keepers said in a group chat that antifa, the far left-leaning group, had breached the Capitol. Stewart Rhodes replied, quote, “Nope, I’m right here. These are patriots.” Multiple law enforcement sources, Bill, have said over the past year there’s no nexus for antifa to place that group on the January 6 attack. However, there have been investigations with antifa during the summer 2020 chaos after the murder of George Floyd. You remember courthouses under attack, people were stomped, people were trampled, businesses absolutely destroyed. Just this week on Capitol Hill, Republicans pressed DOJ and FBI officials about what’s being done.”
