Proud Boy Leadership Indicted over Jan 6 Protests – Cruel Political Theater
The leader of the Proud Boys, Enrique Tarrio, and four other members, Ethan Nordean, Joseph Biggs, Zachary Rehl and Dominic Pezzola have all been indicted on charges of “seditious conspiracy.”
Prosecutors are saying they were instrumental in planning the “attack” on the Capitol building on January 6th, 2020.
More than 800 people have been arrested so far in connection with the January 6th protests of elections that were stolen.
Note that I call it a “protest”, not a “riot.” If you look at any of the footage and don’t try to assign the most violent possible interpretations to people milling about, you see basically a protest with a milling crowd. If you want to see riots, have a look at the BLM riots in Oregon.
Yes, people entered the Capitol building. They didn’t force their way in, there just wasn’t anyone stopping them. Yes, there were a few bad actors, as you would have in any group of 10,000 – and it turns out that some of them were Democrat operatives.
As we have written before, Nancy Pelosi had the word that a protest might be coming. She refused to allow reinforcements to the Capitol Police to provide crowd control. One might even suspect that she wanted trouble. Hmmmm.
Since the protest, the FBI has been busy violating people’s rights. Tracking people’s phones without the proper warrants and arresting everyone in sight. Rumors are that some of the arrestees have been in jail for 6 months or more, without being convicted of anything.
The Democrats have hated the Proud Boys for some time now, accusing them of being racist white supremacists. One has only to look at their website and their gatherings to know they are a multi-ethnic organization. But the Democrats seem to be blind to this.
The Justice Department has dug out the archaic “seditious conspiracy” to harass the Proud Boys. This is a law that has only been used a few times in history. The prosecutors used a grand jury in Washington DC, a liberal stronghold.
Bottom line? There was no riot, no insurrection. People entered the Capitol because there was inadequate security, not because they were looking to overthrow the government. The January 6th investigation is cruel political theater by the Democrats to attempt to affect the midterm elections and to attack Donald Trump. They are peddling a fake story to the American people with the cooperation of the liberal mainstream media.
Watch what happens when the Republicans take control of Congress, the investigation will change in focus. Hopefully, they will take a look at Nancy Pelosi’s actions.
But how many innocent people will get hurt in the meantime?
