Since the controversial events of January 6, the Biden Justice Department has been on a relentless pursuit to punish those they consider to be political prisoners. But while the arrests continue to pile up, it’s becoming increasingly clear that the sentences being handed down are far too harsh for the crimes committed. Some individuals, who weren’t even in Washington, D.C. during the riot, are being given years in jail. It’s an injustice that should be concerning to all Americans who value freedom and fairness.
Furthermore, it appears that the Biden Justice Department has a selective approach when it comes to prosecuting riots. Two lawyers who threw Molotov cocktails at police cars in New York City in 2020 recently received a plea deal after the intervention of the Biden administration. Both incidents involved riots, but only one is considered a rebellion or insurrection because the crowd involved happened to be comprised of Trump supporters. This blatant double standard is a clear example of political bias in our justice system.
In the aftermath of January 6, the FBI has been going all out, utilizing extensive analysis of security footage to track down and identify suspects. They’ve even gone so far as to track clothing purchases and specific physical features to locate individuals allegedly involved in the riot. Yet, astonishingly, the same FBI seems to have been utterly powerless when it comes to investigating cocaine found near the Situation Room in the White House. It’s concerning that the agency would prioritize finding individuals who simply attended a rally over investigating potential threats to national security.
Adding to the creepiness of this ongoing political witch hunt, it has been revealed that LibertySafe, a gun safe manufacturer, willingly provided the FBI with access codes to their products. In the case of Nathan Hughes from Arkansas, the company reportedly gave the FBI his access code to facilitate the seizure of his firearms. One has to question the legality of a gun safe company willingly assisting the government in disarming law-abiding citizens. This raises serious concerns about the erosion of our Second Amendment rights and the potential abuse of power by the federal government.
The arrest of Nathan Earl Hughes is the latest development in this troubling trend. Hughes is now facing felony and misdemeanor charges related to his alleged actions during the breach of the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021. The charges include civil disorder, entering and remaining in a restricted building or grounds, disorderly and disruptive conduct, and impeding passage through Capitol grounds or buildings. He was arrested on August 30, 2023, in Fayetteville, Arkansas.
According to court documents, the FBI was able to identify Hughes using video footage from the Capitol on that fateful day. It’s worth noting that they singled him out based on specific physical features, including the distinct notches at the top of his ears. This raises concerns about the extent to which our personal privacy is being invaded in the name of tracking down political dissidents.
It’s deeply troubling to see a gun safe company willingly cooperate with the government in disarming citizens. LibertySafe’s actions have rightfully received backlash from their customer base. We must remain vigilant in protecting our constitutional rights, including the right to bear arms. The ongoing political prisoner roundup and the excessive sentences being handed down call for a closer examination of the political bias infecting our justice system. We must ensure that justice is blind and fair for all, regardless of their political beliefs.
