And the (in)justice system collects itself another scalp.
Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes was sentenced on Thursday to 18 years in prison.
Rhodes was sentenced to 18 years by far-left Obama-appointed US District Judge Amit Mehta on Thursday morning who then lectured him on what a danger he was to society.
Mehta sentenced Stewart Rhodes to 18 years. Rhodes is currently 57. If the this unconstitutional conviction stands, Rhodes will be 75 when he is released.
In late November 2022, Washington DC jurors reached a guilty verdict of garbage “seditious conspiracy” charges against Stewart Rhodes in the Oath Keepers Trial.
The DC jury found EVERY SINGLE Trump supporter guilty in their disgusting and unconstitutional criminal proceedings against honest Americans who were caught up in the violence on January 6.
Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes NEVER went inside the US Capitol. He never instructed anyone to go inside the US Capitol. He was unarmed as were all of his Oath Keepers associates that day. There was no plan to enter the US Capitol. There was no scheme to take over the government with their bare hands. The prosecution was a sham. The jury was a pool of DC Communists and unhinged left-wing activists who see themselves as victims.
The Oath Keepers were in DC in January 2021 to offer security for the several rallies planned by Trump supporters on January 5th and 6th. The Oath Keepers and Proud Boys have worked security at dozens of events by conservatives, patriots, Christian groups, and Trump supporters, to protect them from organized Antifa violence. Democrats hated them for this.
To my (slight; I had held out some hope for the guy until now) disappointment, Matt Gaetz didn’t exactly cover himself in glory after this grotesque buggering of Lady Justice.
As reported earlier, conservatives were taken back on Thursday night after Rep. Matt Gaetz told a Twitter Space gathering that he was not “particularly aggrieved” after Oath Keepers founder and President Stewart Rhodes was sentenced to 18 years in prison for alleged seditious conspiracy and “terrorism” on January 6, 2021.
Rep. Matt Gaetz said, “He stood before a jury. They had every Constitutional privilege afforded defendants. They were found guilty of seditious conspiracy and if they were trying seriously to overthrow the government, 1.) they’re idiots. 2.) They had no chance, and 3.) they probably deserve some punishment. I thought that the sentences would be less than they were, so I was a bit surprised by the duration but I wasn’t particularly aggrieved by them.”
Which cruel indifference to seeing a blameless man’s life upended and destroyed makes you either despicably complicit or a goddamned fool then, Mr Gaetz. Sorry, but try as I might I can descry no third option here. On the up-side, though, Gaetz has just revealed precisely who and what he really is with his statement, for all who have eyes to see.
“Every Constitutional privilege afforded defendants”? To quote an especially repulsive DC termagant, are you serious? ARE YOU SERIOUS?!? My God, it would be laughable if it were in any way funny. Stewart fires back at the loathsome Swamp creature:
Stewart’s first reaction was to bring up a prior comment by Gaetz, who was curious as to why Stewart had not yet been indicted following the Jan. 6 protests. Stewart was indicted on January 12, 2022, over a year after the January 6 protests.
“I think he’s probably got egg on his face now [Matt Gaetz] because obviously, turns out I was not a Fed,” said Stewart.
“It took them a year to cook up their fake evidence against me, coerced confessions and threatened people. A year in prison to coerce your plea bargains. It took them a long time to finally get around to indicting me because I didn’t go inside.”
That’s because you’ve just been railroaded, rogered, and boned up the ass by the Deep State megalith, without even the benefit of a courtesy reacharound.
“So now I think he has egg on his face. Now he wants to minimize that by saying, well, these people probably weren’t guilty. We are innocent. We are only guilty like I said in my sentencing statement, I’m only guilty, like President Trump, of opposing those who are destroying our country.”
“And I have been opposing them by free speech for 15 years now since our Oath Keepers. That’s what I’ve done. And everything I’ve done has been honorable. And everything that the Oath Keepers has done has been honorable.”
Stewart added, “I’m not sure why he said that, but he needs to take a good hard look at where we are and what has been done to, not just us, but other people. What’s going to be done – to stop the insurrection against the entire MAGA movement? To call us all insurrectionists, all racists, all fascists, all of us anti-democratic. When they say democracy, we are not a democracy, we’re a constitutional (re)public. But what they really mean is our power. So when Biden says they are a threat to democracy, what it really means is they are a threat to our power.”
He added, “Matt (Gaetz), he needs to either retract (or) fix that.”
I wouldn’t be holding my breath waiting for it if I were you, Stewart. But fuck Matt Gaetz sideways. Again: next time one of these “seditious conpiracy” groups decides to try their hand at overthrowing the manifestly illegitimate Amerika v2.0 tyranny, they need to remember to bring the guns along with ‘em.
All bold above Hoft’s, not mine, aporopos of little if anything. Dave Renegade adds:
A black man who was ineligible to run for the office of the United States Presidency is “elected”. He was “selected” in his reelection. His appointed judge in Washington, D.C. who was born in India sentences a patriot to 18 years in prison for trying to restore the Republic. Stewart Rhodes was correct: he should have brought firearms. He will be paying a high price for yet another FBI setup.
If the judge had any knowledge of the founding of our Republic, he would know that Democracy is the antithesis of the foundation of our nation. What he actually stated is that the founding fathers were a threat to the United States since the overthrow of the Republic in the 2020 election usurpation.
As more of the government’s malfaisance is uncovered, the more desperate they will become. I believe that they will physically come for people who spoke out against tyranny and supported our founding principles. Come to terms with what that means because you will not have much time to decide when they come to your door.
“They will physically come for people…” Not to pile on, heckle, or slam ya in any way, Dave, but that’s exactly what they’ve done to the J6 Gulagees, is it not? Not will, not at all—HAVE, more like.
