Report: Armed Jan. 6th Protestor Removed from FBI’s List; was Wearing Earpiece During Protest
Despite what you may hear from Democrats about the January 6th “riot” at the US Capitol Building, only a single Trump supporter in attendance was caught on tape carrying a firearm.
Also known as “Ginger Gun,” his name is Luke Phillip Robinson and he was filmed on January 6th standing beneath some scaffolding near the western steps of the Capitol Building. As you can see in the image above, Robinson was wearing a red hoodie, a denim jacket with a fur collar, a patriotic hat, and an earpiece. Additional footage shows what is clearly a concealed weapon.
Robinson was placed on the FBI’s “most-wanted list” as person #343 after the incident. Despite the fact that he carried a weapon onto federal property, he was not arrested or charged with any crime. As reported by The Gateway Pundit, his name and the names of two other January 6th attendees (Ray Epps and Megan Paradise) were later removed from the FBI’s list without explanation.
Authorities’ treatment of Robinson is strange, especially compared to the charges leveled against other demonstrators. Take Micajah Jackson, for example, who was fined $1,500 and sentenced to 90 days in a halfway house simply for entering the Capitol Building during the protest.
Jackson, a US Marine war veteran acquainted with Robinson, entered the Capitol Building with other Trump supporters and exited the vicinity when asked to do so by authorities. He had no weapon and did not engage in violence. A few months after the incident, FBI agents showed up at his house and he was arrested.
Deciding to forgo a trial, Jackson pleaded guilty to one charge of picketing on federal property and received the penalty listed above.
Jackson lost contact with Robinson around the time he was arrested, but saw him briefly at an auto rally in September 2021. Later that month, Jackson learned that Robinson had been identified by Sedition Hunters (a global community of investigators seeking to understand the events leading up to January 6th) and that his name was removed from the FBI’s list.
After failing to reach Robinson via text message, Jackson teamed up with his friend Kyle to set up a meeting. The three men met at a parking lot in Phoenix, Arizona under the guise that Kyle was interested in buying a bicycle that Robinson had listed on Craigslist.
As you can see in the video linked below, Robinson was more than surprised to see Jackson at the meeting. Robinson appears uncomfortable around the other man and refuses to answer any of his questions. When asked if he was acquainted with Epps (who lives in the same region of Arizona as Robinson), Robinson freezes for a moment before answering, “No.”
Speaking with reporters about his meeting with Robinson, Jackson suggests the presence of the earpiece could mean that Robinson was working for a domestic or foreign actor during the protest.
“When you read about Fascist states or Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union, that’s what they would do to political opponents and to suppress the other side to get their agenda done,” says Jackson. “They send out regular people that would fit into a crowd and trade them for information or they have something over his head and he has to and he’s just taking the bait.”
There is no reason why authorities would not have arrested Ginger Gun during the protest unless he was working for someone, added Jackson. ‘This type of thing has been done for hundreds of years.’
