Let’s compare the January 6 “insurrection” to the riots on January 20th, 2017—Trump’s inauguration day. Hundreds if not thousands of Antifa anarchists and communists rioted and committed arson on J20. They threw rocks, smashed windows, assaulted police with projectiles, terrified customers in businesses they vandalized, and set SUVs and limousines on fire, destroying them, all in hopes of stopping the peaceful transfer of power after the lawful election of President Donald J. Trump.
235 J20 suspects were charged with various felonies, and were liable to serve between 25-70 years in prison, with fines as high as $25,000.
“But a funny thing happened on the way to justice: they were quickly bonded out, then the judges rigged the cases to free the defendants.”
U.S. Superior Court Presiding Judge Lynn Leibovitz, a George Bush Jr. appointee, forbade prosecution from using phrases like “Antifa” and “Black Bloc,” and just before deliberations threw out the felony riot charges. Just two defendants were convicted, but Leibovitz suspended their sentences. Only one of the 235 defendants, Dane Powell, did any jail time, and it was only 4 months.
Let’s contrast that with what happened at the J6 protest to stop the Electoral College count and ensuing Big Steal.
The J6 protesters weren’t bonded out, and some are in solitary confinement. The feds arrested more than 570 J6 protesters—more than twice as many as they arrested for the J20 mayhem—and charged many with “civil disorder,” “obstruction of an official proceeding,” and “violent entry into the Capitol building.”
Nicholas Stix writes:
“J20 rioters did exactly what judges and prosecutors have accused the J6 defendants of doing. The rioting communists tried to prevent the peaceful transfer of power after a lawful election.
This is life in the anarcho-tyranny, as Francis described it, in which ‘criminals aren’t punished (which is why it is anarchy), but the innocent are (which is why it’s tyranny).’”
