The horrific events following Jan. 6, 2020 have been exponentially more destructive to American democracy than the protest itself.
Those present on the Capitol that day have been maligned, criminally mistreated, and in the case of one poor soul, even murdered. Unprecedented, bloated jail sentences have rained down upon the protestors while their right to due process is routinely and systematically denied. The conditions to which they’re kept behind bars, often in solitary confinement, have been reported as deplorable and inhumane. The men and women brave enough to take a bold stand against the atrocities of the 2020 presidential election are now being treated worse than your common Islamic terrorist at Guantanamo Bay.
Politically speaking, the Jan. 6 protestors play an even greater role for Democrats. While the execution of the protest wasn’t ideal, the men and women willing to put their freedom on the line to push back against a phony election is admirable. Violence was purposefully ramped up by Deep State infiltrators from both the FBI and CIA who posed as common Trump supporters in an effort to create an appearance of chaos. Cut to today and Democrats are still exploiting the events for political gain.
A House witch hunt committee is illegally seizing phone records of any/all Trump associates, Democrats are pushing radical anti-American ‘voting rights’ legislation, and Big Tech giants have ramped up censorship efforts on anyone/everyone who dare question the validity of the 2020 presidential election. The scary part is that all of their efforts to silence and destroy conservatives is couched in the phony sentiment of preserving American democracy, even though they’re hellbent on doing the exact opposite.
Luckily for anyone paying attention, it appears that Former President Donald Trump has our back.
America’s favorite president said that he will pardon those convicted for their role in the Jan. 6 Capitol riot should he be re-elected during his Saturday speech at a rally in Conroe, Texas.
“If I run and if I win, we will treat those people from January 6 fairly, and if it requires pardons we will give them pardons, because they are being treated so unfairly,” Trump said.
He then went on to characterize the actions of the Jan. 6 Select Committee, which recently issued subpoenas to a number of individuals close to Trump, as a “disgrace.”

Of course it took no time at all for some pearl-clutching Republican to swoop in and publicly denounce Trump’s words at the critical time when the GOP should appear harmonious.
Republican South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham – who waffles between RINOism and supporting Trump’s America First agenda – criticized the Former President’s remarks as “inappropriate,” adding that it could send the wrong signal to the public.
“No, I don’t want to send any signal that it was OK to defile the Capitol,” Graham said, appearing on the Sunday episode of CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

Go back to your Southern gentry country club and sip on a mint julip or something, Lindsey. Leave the hard-hitting politics to Trump.
