The leader of the Otero County, Colorado, Republican Party was “suspicious from the get-go” about the George Floyd video, thinking it might have been faked to harm Trump in November.
“Interesting perspective. I’ve been suspicious from the get-go, because it’s in the main media,” said Stephanie Garbo in a May 28 Facebook post, referring to an essay she shared on the social media platform.
The essay, which remains posted on Garbo’s public Facebook page, states: “I think there is at the very least the ‘possibility’, that this was a filmed public execution of a black man by a white cop, with the purpose of creating racial tensions and driving a wedge in the growing group of anti deep state sentiment from common people, that have already been psychologically traumatized by Covid 19 fears.”
“I am ready for the fallout,” commented Garbo before sharing the essay. “If I’m wrong, I’ll admit it. I hope I am. This is, in my opinion… [elipses in the original] ORCHESTRATED. CHAOS. How do you get control of chaos within your citizenship? Martial Law.”
Efforts to reach Garbo via email and phone were not successful.
Later, on June 2, Garbo said on Facebook that it was a “Legit question” of whether George Soros was pushing rioting.
Garbo shared a meme asking, “Oh. You’re Rioting and Looting for George? Floyd or Soros?”
There’s no evidence that Soros is behind the protests.
Garbo also shared an awful conspiracy video about Floyd, calling on “patriots” to prepare for a coming “revolution.”
The “Q-Anon” video claims that Floyd’s murder was “100% premeditated and the riots were 100% provoked,” and encourages viewers to put on our own yellow vests and create our own Trump rallies. Protesters in France wore yellow vests to protest taxes. The conservative Heritage Foundation has since documented Russian efforts to promote the “Yellow Vest” movement in order to foment discord throughout the Western hemisphere.
Racist Facebook Posts by Previous Otero GOP Leader
Judy Reyher, a previous chair of the Otero County Republican Party once on her personal Facebook page called African Americans “hatred-filled beings,” and posted other offensive content–which she insisted was not racist. Despite this, Reyher was selected in 2017 by Otero County Republicans to fill a vacancy slot in the state legislature.
She later lost a primary bid to be elected to the seat, which is now held by Democratic state Rep. Bri Buentello.
Garbo is apparently seen by the Colorado Republican Party as a rising star.
Residing in La Junta in southeastern Colorado, she is part of a Colorado Republican Party group called “Colorado Women in Action,” which includes El Paso County GOP leader Vickie Tonkins, state Rep. Perry Buck of Windsor, and CU Regent Heidi Ganahl, who’s one of only two Republicans who serve in offices elected by voters statewide. The other is U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO).
The group is led by Colorado Republican Party’s vice chair, Kristi Burton-Brown who said that “future candidates will come out of our ranks, and they will be trained, connected, and ready to win for the families of Colorado.”
Last year, at a town hall forum in La Junta, Garbo called a proposed sex education bill, which later became law, “very anti-conservative” in part because the bill “does not endorse abstinence.”
“What concerns me is that this bill feels very anti-conservative,” Garbo was quoted as saying in the La Junta Tribune-Democrat. ”… It even states that it rejects the use of gender norms or gender stereotypes and considers them tactics. This bill promotes the use of abortion as birth control and does not endorse abstinence, which goes against many of our conservative values.”

Local GOP leaders in other states have run into trouble for posting similar material.
Republican leaders in Texas, including Sen. Ted Cruz, have called on a Texas County Republican chair to resign, after she suggested in a Facebook post, which has been deleted, that the Floyd’s death was staged.
Cruz tweeted that the comments “were wrong, and only serve to divide us at a time when we all need to come together. Given those harmful comments, she should resign from leadership.”
Last week, another county Republican leader in Texas told a TV station that he’d resign over posting a similar conspiracy piece on Facebook if the Texas governor would resign for “what he has done to the Texas economy.”
The full essay shared by Garbo is below:
Interesting thoughts: not mine I copied this… The Floyd event was staged.
These officers were involved with something, I’m not sure exactly what, but something is just not adding up.
I think there is at the very least the “possibility”, that this was a filmed public execution of a black man by a white cop, with the purpose of creating racial tensions and driving a wedge in the growing group of anti deep state sentiment from comon people, that have already been psychologically traumatized by Covid 19 fears.
Historically, in election years and in politically contested areas or in groups, racial or gun violence incidents are becoming common place. Considering the rising approval rating of President Trump in the black community, an event like this was unfortunately “Predictable”
Consider these points and contrast them to every other police brutality incident you’ve ever seen.
The filmed portion of the incident was about 10 minutes long. In that amount of time, three officers are holding one handcuffed man down. You only know that because of the pictures taken from across the street. You can’t see the other two officers in the video because they are behind the vehicle. During 8 minutes of the entire video, the officer has his knee on George Floyd’s neck, which is not taught or approved by any law enforcement agency.
Additionally, other than the Asian officer speaking occasionally to the crowd of bystanders, there is no communication from any of the officers to Mr. Floyd. No talking, no shouting. When have you ever seen a police brutality video without police shouting?
Additionally, the police had no goal. They weren’t trying to subdue him for arrest, he was already handcuffed and all they needed to do, was place him in the back of the car. There is no plausible explanation for taking him to the ground and having three men on top of a handcuffed man, a knee placed on his neck. Mr. Floyd presented no threat and was not resisting. The only goal that there appeared to be was exactly what happened: “To be filmed brutally killing a black man”.
Think about this, these officers did not care about being filmed, in fact the officer stared into the camera with soulless eyes and an emotionless face, reminiscent of an assassin, as he knowingly killed an American Citizen.
None of the officers spoke among themselves or did they speak to Mr. Floyd. They did not respond to his pleas for life. They just sat and kneeled on him until he was passed out and then waited an additional 4 minutes after Mr. Floyd lost consciousness to ensure that Mr. Floyd was dead and could not be revived.
The bystanders are verbally communicating to the officers, that he isn’t breathing. Unlike any other similar incident, you never see the officers getting on police radios. You never see or hear them calling dispatch for backup. No other police units arrive on the scene and
strangely enough, the crowd does not seem to grow either.
The scene does not end until an ambulance arrives and they unceremoniously flop him on a gurney. At no point does anyone in a uniform ever check his vitals. “As if they aren’t remotely curious about the situation they are in” BTW. who called the ambulance and for what reason? Because if the reason was that Mr. Floyd was having a medical issue, they wouldn’t have still been crushing his neck.
Shortly after the video went viral, a fake Facebook page supposedly belonging to the officer, at the center of the murder appears and pictures are uploaded that say “Stand your Ground” and “Trump 2020”. A picture of the cop with a red ballcap that says “Make America White Again”. A friends list populated with obvious sock accounts and people clearly not his friends. This is the same kind of fake Facebook stunt that happened with a group made to look like support for the men involved with the Ahmed Aubrey case.
Is it mere coincidence that this happens the week after “race” becomes a major political issue after the Biden “You ain’t Black” gaffe, started to threaten the black vote the Democrats so desperately count on?
Additionally, there is substantial video evidence to arrest at least one officer now. Why would the local authorities not charge him immediately, unless there was a political advantage not to!
Is it mere coincidence that this happens right about the exact moment the COVID-19 fear campaign falls apart, and after it has psychologically traumatized the entire country and got everyone at each other’s throats and suicide attempts are spiking? Is it mere coincidence that this happens after the Auhmed Aubrey case… Which somehow eluded the mainstream media completely until two whole months after he was killed? When has that ever happened? Timing issue? Is it mere coincidence that Supreme Race Baiter Obama was making videos a couple weeks ago connecting COVID with “Systemic Racism”?
FINALLY….‼️‼️ this entire scene plays out with the cop car and license plate that says “POLICE”. The plate was perfectly framed for maximum subliminal impact. This also means he was literally just 1 foot away from the back seat of the police car and these cops thought it was smarter to kill a black man on camera, than to pick him up and move him one foot into the back of the police car.
You can draw your own conclusions, but this appears to have all the earmarks of George Soros. Please open your eyes!!!!
