Depending on which side of the political spectrum you hang your hat, the recent sentencing of a so-called “Capitol Rioter” ramps up different emotions. Democrats such as Nancy Pelosi would like to bring back lynch mobs and string up the miscreants who entered the House, sat at her desk, and took selfies in the Capitol. If you stand among the millions who firmly believe the 2020 presidential election was tainted by voter fraud, perhaps disrupting the electoral college certification was an act of patriotism.
On this Breaking Points exclusive, Krystal Ball and Saagar Enjeti cover wide-reaching problems sentencing a non-violent member of the crowd who entered the building to 8 months in prison.
Consider, for a moment, that the majority of the crowd in January were Black Lives Matter or Antifa rioters. We’ve all seen their mobs looting businesses, assaulting residents, burning buildings, and attacking police officers. Murders have been committed at those Covid super-spreader protest events. Yet, liberals and the dishonest media continue to lie and call them “mostly peaceful protests.” What’s even more troubling than the left-wing propaganda is that hundreds of perpetrators had criminal charges dropped by Democrat prosecutors.
In the first guilty plea of the Capitol disruption, no one was assaulted, no one was killed, nothing was burned, and the individual on his way to prison saw prosecutors push for 18 months in jail after calling it an “insurrection.” Even the Obama judge presiding over the case didn’t buy that nonsense. If you rank among the many who think conservatives aren’t being treated fairly, watch Ball and Enjeti dismantle this wrongful persecution.
