Babin stands by election objections, but condemns attack on U.S. Capitol

U.S. Congressman Brian Babin (TX-36) issued the following statement about the events of January 6, 2021:

The media is attempting to confuse the public regarding objectors and the importance of election integrity for all future elections with the violence that took place in Washington, DC yesterday.

I stand by my objections to the Electoral College count from certain states in the November 2020 election. If we allow representatives of the people to be threatened and accused of treason for carrying out their constitutional duty to ensure free and fair elections, I fear that all of our American freedoms will soon be in danger of becoming nothing more than patriot dreams of the past. I will not be bullied into forsaking the oath I swore to uphold.

If SCOTUS had properly acted and heard the Texas lawsuit, we might have prevented frustrations from festering into the tragic events of yesterday. The American people deserved a decision on the merit of numerous claims of unconstitutionality, irregularity, and fraud. It was their duty. They failed.

I am against what took place yesterday inside the Capitol building and the manner in which it occurred. I am also against the vile insults directed toward me and my fellow objectors that slam our integrity and blame us for yesterday’s incidents – especially from those who have condoned and even championed the violent events that have taken place over the last nine months.

My Democrat colleagues offered objections in 2001, 2005, and 2017 when counting the electoral votes – there was nothing treasonous or seditious about it then, nor is there now. The Left cannot call for unity, while also calling for my expulsion from the House of Representatives simply for doing the same thing they have done in every Republican-won presidential election in modern history.

That being said, Congress has spoken and there will be a peaceful transfer of power on January 20, 2021. Regardless of who is in the White House, I will continue to spend every day faithfully serving the people of TX-36 and work to protect this country from the Democrats’ socialistic agenda.

  1. Brian Babin speaking out of 2 holes, you lost Brian. Why didn’t you and your Trump cronies reject all of the states? Smells like….to me, you only singled out most of the states that Trump lost that were predominantly Black and people of color, and for your hand picked supreme court they didn’t fall for your BS. So I guess the next target for the proud boys will be the S C building. They are pathetic, Babin your days are numbered in office,believe it.your own constients now see your True Colors, BYE FOOL

  2. You can stand by whatever you want but it doesn’t make you right, you treasonous piece of crap. You’ve hitched your wagon to a loser and to the wrong side of justice. Soon enough the rightwing-hate doublespeak will fade and words like “socialism” will no longer be weaponized as you and the other fools on the right have. You have no idea what you are talking about, and you continue the LIES to your sheep, not to mention the fact that you are derelict in your duty to the remainder of the citizenry here who did NOT vote for you, who you are actively NOT representing – why don’t you shut up and DO YOUR JOB? Your JOB does not include vilifying and demonizing decent citizens who do not agree with your messed-up views. Just as Moscow Mitch will thankfully be taken out of power in a few days, the time will come when the residents of Liberty County wake up to how badly they’ve been duped & misled. You are as responsible for the deaths at the Capitol as Trump or Cruz or Hawley. The TRUMP TRAIN is CRASHING as we predicted it would. You are a FAILURE and must RESIGN.

  3. “Socialism” will no longer be weaponized………are you a supporter of socialism ? a form of government that has suppressed and even murdered thousands of people throughout history. The overseer of wide spread poverty and promoter of class warfare so that the entrepreneurial spirit and individuality is beaten down and not allowed to exist. I’d say its ALWAYS been a weapon…….a weapon that those like you have used for years to create a culture of equal misery and drabness. I don’t support what happened at the capital. It puts us on the same level as the thugs and radicals that you hypocrites on the the left supported over the last 4 years. Where, of course, your rage was conveniently missing during all that chaos. If anyone are sheep it’s you and the others who follow the likes of Obama, Pelosi , Waters, AOC and a long list of America haters.

    • bb,that’s with small letters,sounds like you’ve just described Republicans. I knew it all the time, thank you. You’re just sorry you didn’t make it to the capitol to contribute with the rest of those idiots call yourselves patriots, what a joke and next time choose your own words for comments not from far right conspiracy theory bull. Bye Trump

    • Once again, the low intelligence of the right on display. As the character in the movie says, you keep using that word, I don’t think it means what you think it means. All of these actions since the election are completely indicative of third-world dictatorships. The so-called leader taking to the media to rouse dissent. The programmed minions taking their Dear Leader’s words to heart and putting them to action regardless of the law. The attempt to overthrow the country, and a reminder, the duly elected new Administration. Sound familiar? All these morons who consider themselves Patriots, which is utterly laughable, have more in common with Timothy McVeigh than with any actual Patriot. You have been duped. You have been programmed. You have been brainwashed. You are a cult member. You are not an American. Get help.

  4. The deepening understanding of the events of January 6 and the intense attempts of republicans to find fault with the election show that Mr. Babin was mistaken. He had no evidence to withhold his support of our newly elected president. He was willing to set aside our constitutional processes for his political bias in favor of the worst president this country has seen in my lifetime (including Richard Nixon). Mr. Babin is now part of the historical community that forms a ‘smoldering coup’ against the legitimate government of the United States. Do we in living CD 36 want 2 more years of political pandering at the expense of constitutional processes?
