Notorious Washington extremist whose rallies attract violent white supremacists to run for US senate

Published

on

Joey Gibson, an activist from southwest Washington who is notorious for hosting “free speech” rallies that often grow violent, will run for U.S. senate in Washington State.

The run was first reported by Portland’s daily newspaper, which spoke with Gibson at his announcement rally in Vancouver, Washington.

“The system is broken and rigged,” he said. “We’re letting the establishment run our country.”

Gibson will run against Democrat Maria Cantwell, who has been in office since 2001 and who won her most recent re-election bid with 60 percent of the vote.

Gibson founded Patriot Prayer, an extremist Conservative group which holds rallies aimed at “triggering” liberals in cities like Portland, Berkeley and San Francisco. Gibson is not a white nationalist but his rallies often attract white nationalists.

Gibson provokes angry responses from counter-protestors and then often hides behind riot police as they rage at him.

Gibson’s announcement, held at a local Red Cross building, featured enthusiastic supporters who chanted “Jo-ey, Jo-ey, Jo-ey!”

Gibson is currently the only Republican running for the office, which may mean he’s on the November ballot.

CNN anchor Don Lemon explained how witnesses called by Republicans in the impeachment inquiry destoryed the defenses employed by President Donald Trump and his allies.

"Now, let's just be honest, the shakedown -- that's exactly what it is -- the shakedown is exposed, people," Lemon said.

"And the evidence comes from the Republican's own witnesses," he noted. "The former envoy to Ukraine, Kurt Volker -- who resigned just one day after the release of the whistleblower's report -- telling the president's defenders exactly what they did not want to hear."

"They called him apparently expecting him to say what he said in his closed-door testimony, that he saw no evidence of a quid pro quo, or let's call it for what it is again -- a shakedown," he continued. "Well, now he says he was wrong."

Every person who testified before Congress has said that Trump's obsession with Joe Biden was concerning enough to alert others. Even National Security Council aide Tim Morrison stressed that he didn’t believe there was anything inappropriate about the call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. But when Rep. Val Demmings (D-FL) asked him why then he felt the need to report it if there was nothing wrong, Morrison struggled to find an answer.
