The “armed insurrection terrorist attack carried out by white supremacists” narrative about the January 6th US Capitol protest has all but evaporated. There was never any truth to the claim that the election protest was an insurrection. Even FBI Director Christopher Wray has been forced to admit this.
We also know that the people who carried out violence and/or vandalism during the mostly peaceful protest were actually undercover FBI agents. January 6th was a false flag operation to smear Trump supporters, much like the 2017 incident in Charlottesville, Virginia. But that hasn’t stopped the overzealousness of the Biden regime, which continues to persecute Americans who have serious questions about the last election.
One narrative that just won’t die for some reason is that this was an “armed insurrection.” Wray testified last week that “at least one” firearm was carried into the US Capitol. There’s been no evidence presented to this date to suggest that this is true. It appears that this was another lie, just as it was a lie that Capitol police officer Brian Sicknick was “murdered with a fire extinguisher,” or that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s life was in danger (as she was in a completely different building).
It’s starting to look like “guns inside the US Capitol” are a lot like hate crimes by Trump supporters against black Americans. The media’s demand far outweighs the actual supply!
So, the Justice Department has decided that it will need to get creative in ginning up gun crimes to charge Trump supporters with. Undaunted by the actual lack of guns, they’ve now managed to find one scapegoat that they can pin a gun crime on.
That man’s name is Guy Reffitt. He’s from Texas and he went to the US Capitol on January 6th along with tens of thousands of additional Trump supporters. Reffitt was arrested at his hotel in Washington, DC on January 7th, and he’s been in solitary confinement in that nasty, funky DC jail ever since.
Reffitt was initially charged with civil disorder and trespassing. He was facing 50 years in federal prison based on those charges. 50 years! He’s not charged with assault or vandalism or hurting anyone.
But now the feds have gone back and issued a superseding indictment against Guy Reffitt. It turns out that Guy Reffitt allegedly took his Smith & Wesson revolver to Washington, DC with him on January 6th. In compliance with Washington, DC’s draconian gun laws, Reffitt disassembled the gun. He took it apart and rendered it inoperable. Rather than leaving the gun parts in his vehicle during the protest, which would make them vulnerable to theft, Reffitt placed the disassembled and inoperable gun parts in his backpack and took them with him.
The FBI admits that Reffitt never entered the US Capitol building. Reffitt’s participation in the “storming of the Capitol” involved standing around outside on the Capitol grounds and waving and chanting with most of the rest of the people there.
Just to be clear: It’s not a crime to carry disassembled, inoperable gun parts on your person, even in Washington, DC. Reffitt was in compliance with DC law. But because he had those disassembled and inoperable gun parts on his person, the corrupt Biden DOJ has now charged Reffitt with using a firearm in furtherance of civil disorder. That makes it sound as if Reffitt was waving the gun around and threatening police or congressmen with it. But he didn’t do that, according to the DOJ’s own charging documents against him.
Guy Reffitt had inoperable gun parts in his possession as he stood outside the US Capitol with thousands of his fellow angry Americans. Because of the gun charge, Guy Reffitt now faces 70 years in prison.
Do you get the sense that Christopher Wray and Attorney General Merrick Garland are enjoying it as they rub the double standard in our faces? BLM and Antifa destroyed American families all year long in 2020 by burning small businesses to the ground. Yet no domestic terrorist from either of those two Democrat-aligned groups has faced anything approaching the 70 years of imprisonment that Guy Reffitt and other Trump supporters are facing. These people are sick.
And they don’t seem to realize that treating people this way based on political beliefs is only going to make the situation worse. If engaging in a First Amendment-protected protest is going to land someone in prison for life, why should future protesters bother to show restraint?
