Punished for no more than advocating a fantasy; obviously a miscarriage of justice that can only be applauded by tyrants. Fantasies can't be regarded as crimes unless they are acted on and made real--even when explicitly advocated. Even if Trump had given the order to invade the Capitol, there's no concrete evidence all Oath Keepers, and this "leader" in particular, would have acted on it by going into the Capitol building.
From the article: "Rhodes founded Oath Keeprs in 2009 and it grew into one of the largest anti-government militia groups. Recruiting past and present members of the military and police officers, the group promotes the belief that the federal government is out to strip citizens of their civil liberties and paints its followers as defenders against tyranny." Looking at this Jan 6 crap it seems Rhodes got it right and as a result he has been stripped of his liberty by a tyrannical government. I don't think Rhodes or any of his organization is "anti-government", but is anti run amok unconstitutional government.
The verbiage of the article is obviously biased against this man and his organization, but at least the truth can still break through.
Use this guy (Rhodes) as a guidepost. The government expects a frontal assault and is prepared for it.
Ayn had this all figured out. She lived through times just like these in her “Mother Russia”.
when the Usurper is replaced
and those responsible for these injustices must face REAL Justice
day 2..... a longer list of things to do
I feel the "militia" groups who participated in Jan 6, one way or another, were just acting out their fantasies in the same way as those reenactment "soldiers" occasionally do. I can't see punishing the Jan 6 protesters any more than one would reenactment "soldiers" playing out their fantasies.
The Jan 6 protesters didn't carry loaded weapons and neither do reenactment "soldiers" and I don't see Jan 6 as any more of an "insurrection" than a Civil War reenactment "battle" is the real thing.
How can you punish people for engaging in collective fantasy?
Since Trump offered National Guard security that Pelosi and her ilk rejected, it's 2+2 who wanted trouble to make the other side look bad. So did those spreading lying Schiff to make examples of political prisoners.
Hope that the next President is a Republican who immediately pardons every single person "convicted" for their actions from Jan 6th.
