UFC’s Bryce Mitchell mistakes Iran for Iraq, goes on an unhinged rant

Bryce Mitchell has never been one to shy away from expressing his unique and often unconventional beliefs. He’s become known for his outspoken views, which range from his fervent support of the flat-earth hypothesis to various controversial stances that elicit mixed reactions from the public.

Recently, Mitchell took to Instagram for an impassioned six-minute rant in which he delved into a myriad of subjects,

including the claim that the tragic events of September 11th were an inside job. His views, however, have sparked a whirlwind of discussion, given the often inaccurate information he shared during his tirade.

One notable point of contention was Mitchell’s assertion that Iran, rather than Iraq, was linked to the 9/11 attacks. It’s important to clarify that the September 11 attacks, commonly known as 9/11, were a series of coordinated terrorist actions carried out by al-Qaeda, an extremist group, against the United States in 2001. Al-Qaeda was established in 1988 in Pakistan, with its headquarters briefly in Sudan from 1992 to 1996, before relocating to Taliban-ruled Afghanistan and later extending its influence across the Middle East and South Asia.

Mitchell went to double down on the wrong facts in his rant, and would fight people in the comment section tooth and nail that he’s in the right.

However, Mitchell’s video touched on more than just this misconception. He expressed strong reservations about the United States involving itself militarily in the Israel-Palestine conflict, emphasizing his belief that such interventions could lead to unintended consequences due to the perceived corruption within the U.S. government and military leadership.

Mitchell rejects the idea that the United States has a Christian obligation to defend Israel, asserting that the Bible indicates Jesus, not Americans, will be the protector of his people. He further suggested that past U.S. military actions, including the invasion of Iraq after 9/11, were misguided, and he even ventured into the realm of conspiracy theories by stating that he believed 9/11 itself was an inside job orchestrated by the U.S. government.

Mitchell expressed concerns about the possibility of U.S. troops being betrayed and ambushed by their own government when deployed to Israel. He speculated that this could be part of a conspiracy aimed at weakening America in preparation for a future Chinese or Russian invasion.

He interprets current global events as a manifestation of biblical prophecy, where nations unite against Israel. Mitchell went on to argue that American drone strikes have taken more innocent lives than Hamas attacks, and he posited that the U.S. should focus on addressing its internal issues, such as corrupt politics and unfair elections, before trying to assist other nations.
