January 6th was the sole expression of popular outrage concerning a stolen election. It was trivial compared to say, the George Floyd riots. Why have the January 6 protestors been so relentlessly pursued while few if any of the George Floyd rioters have even been prosecuted. From Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr. at lewrockwell.com:
The so-called “Justice” Department has acted with draconian severity against the entirely legal demonstrators of January 6th , who were protesting the illegal election of brain-dead Joe Biden, in the face of substantial evidence the election had been stolen from President Donald Trump. The right to petition the government is guaranteed by the First Amendment, but this has not stopped Merrick Garland from a wave of prosecutions, and more such actions are planned. As if this were not enough the report of the Committee to Investigate the January 6th demonstrations has released the social security numbers of 2000 people who visited President Trump in December 2020, just before the protests, exposing them to threats and violence.
Let’s look at what has happened. Here is a story from the New York Times, but remember when you read it, that this paper cannot report news objectively but insists on the Left line: “The investigation into the storming of the Capitol is, by any measure, the biggest criminal inquiry in the Justice Department’s 153-year history.
And even two years after Jan. 6, 2021, it is only getting bigger.
In chasing leads and making arrests, federal agents have already seized hundreds of cellphones, questioned thousands of witnesses and followed up on tens of thousands of tips in an exhaustive process that has resulted so far in more than 900 arrests from Maine to California.
