Last week, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) sent a letter to the Justice Department demanding answers on why the January 6 political prisoners are being treated so poorly. This didn’t come from the party leadership, but at least a Republican Senator had finally spoken out somewhat favorably about his own political supporters being thrown in a gulag. That sentiment isn’t exactly spreading like wildfire, but another five GOP Senators did follow suit this week. They sent a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland on Monday, asking basically the same questions as Grassley. It only took you five months, guys! Where have you been?
The Republican Senators, to at least give them credit, were Ted Cruz (TX), Rick Scott (FL), Tommy Tuberville (AL), Ron Johnson (WI) and Mike Lee (UT). You can read a copy of the full letter on Ron Johnson’s website HERE.
The Senators do a great job of highlighting the stark differences between the way actual insurrectionists in Antifa are treated by the DOJ (with gentle kid gloves), while Trump supporters are treated as if they were caught staging a coup in central Africa and thrown in the worst jail conditions imaginable.
For example, the Portland rioters who have been tearing the city apart for a year now are frequently given community service after spending no more than one night in jail. Have you seen Portland recently, by the way? It now looks like Beirut after a civil war. You wouldn’t want to live there.
The Portland rioters are also given “deferred resolution agreements.” These are a special deal from the Department of Justice in which felony rioters have their criminal records wiped clean if they stay out of trouble for a short period of time.
Compare that to the treatment of the Trump supporters who have been in solitary confinement for five months, who have their hands zip-tied behind their backs for jailhouse beatings under the fists and boots of racist jail guards, and who have been denied soap, toilet paper and other amenities since January.
The Department of Justice also set up a special website, just to post the names and information of all of the January 6 protesters and publicly shame them. No such database exists for Antifa or BLM members. Not that very many of them have been arrested anyway.
The big question I have is this: Why are elected Republicans so timid about this issue? Their own voters are rotting in jail conditions you normally don’t see outside of Somalia.
They’re talking tough about Dr. Anthony Fauci these days, calling for federal investigations of the creepy little gnome and demanding that he resign. They’re doing that loudly, and every single day. Why aren’t they calling for Merrick Garland’s resignation, or drafting Articles of Impeachment against Joe Biden and Kamala Harris for allowing this to happen on their watch? Why has it taken them five months to sheepishly write a toothless letter that the Department of Justice is under no obligation to even answer?
Couldn’t they take time out of their busy schedules of denouncing Fauci to demand blankets, mattresses and Bibles for the jailed Trump supporters?
I think we know why elected Representatives and Senators won’t speak out on this injustice. They’re terrified.
America went through a coup last November. We all watched it unfold in real time as the Deep State, Big Tech and the Democrat Party used subterfuge, lies and outright cheating to take out the rightfully elected President of the United States. If they can do that to a president, what’s one little old Representative or Senator to the Deep State?
I suspect that’s also why no federally elected Representatives or Senators have stopped by Maricopa County, Arizona this month. They’re too afraid to rock the boat, because they know what will happen to them if they give credence to the most professional forensic audit of a presidential election that has ever taken place.
Look at it this way: Out of all the subjects that we discuss in these pages and share with each other, the two hottest topics among Trump supporters like us right now are the audits and the jailed Trumpers. By a country mile! Yet the only thing that our elected Representatives and Senators want to talk about is Anthony Fauci. Yawn! Just thinking of that little creep makes my eyelids start to droop. Fauci is boring and old news – we all knew he was a fraud a year ago.
It’s pretty sad that the two issues we care about the most are the two things elected Republicans are terrified to talk about.
