More than 500 people reportedly face prosecution for an alleged “insurrection” at the U.S. Capitol on January 6th. What’s wrong with this picture?
First, it seems to be a prodigious misallocation of resources in furtherance of a false narrative and amounts to partisan political warfare against the Democrats’ opposition.
Second, it strongly contrasts with the seemingly minimal effort being expended by law enforcement and the Justice Department to punish those engaged in actual revolutionary activity and widespread destruction – notably, groups like Antifa and the Black Lives Matter organization – for whom many Democratic politicians have evident sympathy.
Most worrying, in the absence of appropriate recognition of the danger posed by such Marxist groups and their Muslim Brotherhood allies by those responsible for protecting against that threat, it’s just a matter of time until the real insurrectionists try to take down America.
