JustUS Dept Bias In Favor of Antifa Continues While Innocent Conservatives Are Persecuted - Antifa Member Who Took Axe to Senate Office Given Probation and his Axe Back

There is NO Justice from This Tyrannical Administration!

"We have been discussing the continued incarceration of many individuals for their participation in the Jan. 6th riot. Despite claims that the riot was an insurrection, the vast majority of defendants have been given relatively minor charges. Nevertheless, the Justice Department has insisted on holding many without bail and some have received longer sentences, like Jacob Chansley (aka “QAnon Shaman”) who was given a 41-month sentence for “obstructing a federal proceeding.”

Thomas “Tas” Alexander Starks, 31, of Lisbon, N.D., faced a strikingly different approach by the Justice Department. The self-avowed Antifa member took an axe to the office of Sen. John Hoeven’s in Fargo on Dec. 21, 2020. Federal sentencing guidelines suggested 10–16 months in prison but he was only sentenced to probation and fined $2,784 for restitution . . . he then reportedly mocked the FBI for returning his axe. Others declared him a hero and Democratic politicians pitched in for his legal defense.

Starks was caught on videotape axing the door of the congressional office. He pleaded guilty to a single charge of destruction of government property. The case has received little attention from the media outside of conservative sites.

Starks has made clear that he was neither apologetic nor deterred from the use of such violence. He has posted under the Facebook moniker, “Paul Dunyan,” an apparent reference to his preferred use of an axe as a form of political expression. He displays the Antifa symbol and, while awaiting sentencing, reportedly wrote: “I am ANTIFA. I will always attack fascists, racial superiority complexes built around nationalism that promotes genocide to fuel a war machine is the worst humanity has to offer.”

It is reminiscent of the defiance shown by arrested Antifa member Jason Charter, who declared “The Movement is winning” after his own arrest.

After his light sentence, Starks posted last month that it was all effectively a joke: “Look what the FBI were kind enough to give back to me!”"

    This is just another proof there is rampant corruption in the justice system and FBI at all levels. The corruption leans heavily left and (currently) in favor of rich leftist supporters. IMHO, the Rittenhouse verdict was an anomaly showing the system isn't entirely rotten, but I fully expect the soldiers of Neo Communist America (ANTIFA, BLM, et al) to get bigger breaks and even let entirely off the hook than citizens of what's left of Free America.

    This is the first me dino has heard of Starks and I'm pretty good about keeping up with the news.
    Why am I not even a tiny teeny weenie bit surprised? I agree with Trump, who once called Fake News "the enemy of the people."

      Having second thoughts. Maybe I do recall something about some twit axing some politician's door. Probably a short little blip I picked up. Maybe on Fox radio or something.

    A portion of my mornings used to include reading news stories on various forums. But now, I don't seem to have the enthusiasm for "outrage" of the day. Maybe I have just become numb. Now, I just look at the headlines and my imagination can fill in the rest of the story. It seems that the left has stolen my ability to even be pissed anymore.
