‘Insurrection Barbie’ complains of being treated like ‘Jew in Germany’

A woman who took part in the storming of the US Capitol on January 6, 2021 says she and other white people are being treated like “Jews in Germany.”

Texas realtor Jenna Ryan, who has earned the epithet “Insurrection Barbie” after trying to turn her involvement in the riot into a right-wing media career, tells NBC News she is being made into a scapegoat because of the way she looks.

“They have no idea who I am as a person, what my beliefs are, what I’ve been through, who I am,” she says. “They see me as a one-dimensional caricature. They don’t see me as a human.”

“And so, that is the epitome of a scapegoat. Just like they did that to the Jews in Germany. Those were scapegoats. And I believe that people who are Caucasian are being turned into evil in front of the media,” she adds.

The comments were aired this week but made by Ryan last month before she entered prison to serve a 60-day sentence for her role in the insurrection.
