When an Antifa protester used an axe to violently crash through Republican North Dakota U.S. Senator John Hoeven’s office window, the attacker received a sentence of merely probation and a small fine. He even got to have his axe returned to him. His attack was captured on video and there was no doubt about his guilt.
But when a peaceful man engages in a pro-Trump rally inside the Capitol on January 6, and makes every apology imaginable afterward to the sentencing court, he receives a shocking 41-month prison sentence. He had also been held in jail for nearly a year before ever receiving the trial to which he was entitled.
His real offense and those of others receiving long prison sentences is to dare to humiliate the pompous Deep State in D.C. The message is clear: do not embarrass the Swamp creatures or else they will retaliate as harshly as they can.
But while the D.C. protesters were unconstitutionally denied bail to remain free pending a trial, liberal defendants are often freed on minimal bail. The man who drove his SUV into a crowd at a Christmas parade in Wisconsin killing 5 and wounding 40 had recently been released on merely $1,000 bail despite his arrest for allegedly running over his girlfriend too.
A Soros-affiliated prosecutor allowed that Wisconsin massacre to happen. Yet the Left is silent about allowing murderers free on bail while imprisoning political protesters indefinitely without bail. This is just a small taste of what the American judicial system is capable of if left in the wrong hands. Think about it: what area of life is beyond a power-hungry judge’s discretion?
Phyllis Schlafly warned for years that family courts were overruling the rights of parents on the phony notion that judges know what’s “in the best interests of the child” more than parents do. If the judiciary can rip apart your family, nothing is beyond their reach.
Reining in the judiciary should be a top priority for conservatives. From the lowest family court to the U.S. Supreme Court, the black-robed elites need to know that We the People can see right through their veil of self-proclaimed impartiality.
