We’ve seen harsh treatment meted out to the people connected to the Jan. 6 riot. We’ve seen many held without bail and some have received long sentences like the QAnon Shaman, Jacob Chansley, who got a 41-month sentence for “obstructing a federal proceeding” even though he didn’t do anything violent, but was a very visible face during the event.
By comparison, the treatment of BLM and Antifa rioting has been very different, with many not facing any consequences for their actions. Nothing makes the comparison clearer than the story of the Antifa guy who attacked a Republican senator’s office with an ax. First of all, you probably haven’t even heard of the story, unlike the constant focus liberal media has had on Jan. 6. The story of the ax attack didn’t get any national attention until today when Tucker Carlson covered the story on his show with Fox’s Bill Melugin. Check out what this guy, Thomas Starks, did to the federal office of Sen. John Hoeven (R-ND) in Fargo on Dec. 21, 2020, using an ax.
Starks pled guilty to the destruction of government property. Federal sentencing guidelines recommended that he get between 10-16 months. But instead, he was given probation and only had to pay $2,784 in restitution. He even got the ax he used in the commission of the offense back. Starks mocked the FBI for giving the ax back to him.
