Yesterday I waxed limerick about Oath Keeper’s founder, Stewart Rhodes, getting an 18-year sentence for seditious conspiracy. Considering the weight of the crime for which he was convicted, judgement was lenient.
Rhodes showed no remorse during the pre-sentencing hearing. Had he not spoken on his behalf, he might have gotten a lighter sentence. He called himself “a political prisoner.” The judge disagreed and said Rhodes still poses a threat to society.
Rhodes’ background as a Yale Law School graduate, and a U.S. Army veteran, leads me to believe he knew what he was doing. He only denies his presence at the Capitol on 1/6, not his coordination and planning of the attack. The evidence is indisputable. He mentions “Antifa” and claims his group acted as security at protests like Black Lives Matter.
January 06, 2021, was eighteen months ago. Many of those who were convicted early are being released, but they are not reformed.
One example: Adam Johnson, 36, of Parrish, Florida, who smiled and waved at a fellow insurrectionist who took the viral photo of him walking through the halls of the Capitol with Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s lectern. The guy who “stole” the pulpit on 1/6 doesn’t like people saying that. He “only moved it.” I think a fair compromise would be to say he tried to steal it but couldn’t manage the weight, so he abandoned it somewhere on his way out.
Anyway, what happened to Adam Johnson?
Adam Johnson is trolling President Biden on Twitter, giving the most experienced POTUS in history advice on foreign affairs and other such matters.
The repercussions for Johnson’s dumbfuckery:
- One year supervision upon release
- 75 days in prison,
- $5,000 fine
- 200 hours of community service
- Lessons learned – zero.
Meanwhile, his colleague, goat boy, Jacob Chansley, was released today from prison, (must now buy his own organic food).
This is Chansley today. He has posted a video of himself garbed in a white suit with American flag accessories, preaching. He says he “forgives his captors.” I couldn’t bring myself to listen to the whole thing.
Those who stormed the Capitol do not exit prison reformed. I don’t know how you deprogram cult members, but confinement isn’t doing it.
