Founder of the Oath Keepers charged with sedition

Unread post by Nero »

The most serious charges yet from January 6, 2020 at the Capitol. Stewart Rhodes of the Oath Keepers has bern charged with seditious conspiracy.
"Ten other people also were charged with seditious conspiracy in connection with the attack on Jan. 6, 2021, when authorities said members of the extremist group came to Washington intent on stopping the certification of President Joe Biden’s victory."

Several Oath Keepers and Proud Boys have pleaded guilty and agreed to cooperate with the investigation. Plus the FBI has thousands of text messages, social media posts and emails.

Crap like this thread makes me realize we need a separate forum for the 2020 riots and all the 800+ that were charged with things and stuff.

:lol:

At least the DUers learn a new word... sedition.

Obviously, the January 6th story now needs to reach out to the crazies to keep the story alive. Serious faces at CNN, very concerned I imagine.

Yep, they're gonna keep beating that worn out drum with the 2022 elections coming up to keep the ignorant sheep scared.
And you gotta give comrade nero his win, especially after all 2021 of him claiming everyone there on Jan 6th was a seditionist-insurrectionists...he finally found one actually being charged with something close to sedition/insurrection. The telling part is that Rhodes guy wasn't even there on Jan 6th, none of the charged had firearms, and the only person murdered that day was a protester...in this case a skinny 100 lb wet female US Airforce retiree who got blasted by the fat trigger happy Capitol Police security guard hiding behind barricades.

Gotta love our selective justice system...

I completely understand why anyone on the right who would never commit an act of violence (the overwhelming majority) would not want to be constantly reminded about this issue and experience getting even the slightest bit of being tarred with the same brush.

Or how someone on the left would attempt to paint the same brush on every Republican who had nothing to do with this.

Amiright?

Political points. It was not an insurrection. The new term "sedition"!!! Yes, yes! People are gonna sing now! The beginning of the end for Trump.

It's been done so many times.

Yeah, you are right. People on both sides of the political spectrum like to use anything and everything they can to overgeneralize and stereotype the opposition. That's been going on since the Founding. If you can believe it, it was a lot worse in the 18th and 19th centuries.
