The New York Post reported that Babbitt was an Air Force veteran who had 14 years in the service and did four tours of duty, according to her husband, Aaron Babbitt, who spoke to KUSI-TV. Babbit was a resident of San Diego and had traveled to Washington DC for the protests.

Her mother-in-law, Robin Babbitt, told the publication that Babbitt was a "Trump supporter". The publication also noted that Babbitt's mother-in-law told a Fox affiliate in DC that she was puzzled by the behavior of her son’s wife. She had tweeted in anticipation of the protests, tweeting the day before, "Nothing will stop us…. they can try and try and try but the storm is here and it is descending upon DC in less than 24 hours….dark to light."



 

Babbitt's thoughts on Covid-19

Babbitt would regularly tweet about the pandemic, calling it a hoax and retweeted conspiracy theories about the COVID-19 virus and the 2020 elections. Her last Twitter activity showed her retweeting Lin Wood's call to charge Vice President Mike Pence with treason. She also liked multiple tweets about the protests.



 

In July 2020, Babbitt had tweeted, "If you are scared then stay home. But some of us aren’t and do not buy into this programmed plandemic if bullsh*t[sic]!" She had also tweeted in December 2020, "You aren’t a threat to anyone by simply breathing. The officers are fine but should be ashamed. COVID IS A F***ING JOKE! They will face no punishment in court... this is America not China. There are rules here about freedoms and things of that nature!"



 

 



 

In July 2020, Babbitt tweeted in support of "[mobbing] around" to hospitals believing that news reports about ERs being overrun were false, writing, "I will do it tomorrow...I already mobbed around to 4 hospitals in San Diego when the controla virus first started. Not a single one was over ran or even CLOSE to capacity. We are being hoodwinked. The sheep need to wake up." In December 2020, when California implemented another stay-at-home order amid rising cases of COVID-19, Babbitt tweeted, "This is that commie bullsh*t!"



 

 



 

On December 30, when Vice President-elect Kamala Harris tweeted, "Once sworn in, @JoeBiden and I will get to work in the first 100 days to ensure Americans mask up, distribute 100M shots, and get students safely back to school," Babbitt responded, "No the f**k you will not! No masks, no you, no Biden the kid raper, no vaccines...sit your fraudulent ass down...we the ppl b**ch!"



 

She also tweeted in June 2020, "Disney is an organized Pedo ring. We all know it.. Epstein’s island much? What about the peeps in FL that were arrested last week in Disney for pedophilia with Kids only a few months old? Anything? Don’t worry, we will wait... Dark to light God wins WWG1WGA."



 

Babbitt had long been a staunch supporter of Trump, tweeting in June 2020, "One of gods greatest warriors...leading the way for us patriots to rise without fear against all we are facing  .... god bless our president!!!! And god bless these United States of America."
