Conservative activists and republicans have long used the term “political prisoners” to describe those arrested following the Capitol riot on January 6, including Matt Braynard, organizer of the “Justice for J6” rally on September 18.
Braynard, a former campaign strategist for the Trump campaign, made the accusation against the U.S. with the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, according to Just the News.
Mainstream media, however, disagrees, calling the terminology an effort to rewrite the narrative of what happened.

A review of the January 6 defendants’ treatment as they travel through the criminal justice system raises questions about how politics may have factored into their prosecutions and incarceration.
Indeed, January 6 defendants are facing longer periods behind bars for lesser charges than Black Lives Matter rioters last summer.
At least 90 percent of citations or charges against the Black Lives Matter rioters were “dropped, dismissed or otherwise not filed” in most of the dozen major jurisdictions prosecuting racial rioters, while D.C. prosecutors even dropped most felony charges.
Meanwhile, at least 50 January 6 defendants have been transferred to D.C. jail from their home states with “[m]any held without bail on misdemeanor charges in separate D.C. lockup designated for Capitol rioters,” per RealClearInvestigations.
“Justice for J6” rallies will be held in September in Washington D.C., Arizona, California, Colorado, Georgia, Iowa, Kansas, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Washington and Wyoming.

“about how politics may have factored into their prosecutions and incarceration”. Politics may have factored into the prosecutions and incarcerations? What a joke, as we know the answer to that! Many held with no bail for misdemeanors? Isn’t it nice living in a police state / communist gulag state?
THERE IS NO “may have. Politicis DID play an active, and still is, role.
Many conservatives would like to point out just how wrong the democrat Marxists of America have abused, looked the other way when Rioters were democrats doing the burning, Looting, and destroying businesses not to methon going to social functions without wearing masks, but this going without masks was ok because it was some of those high up in the Joe Biden presidency. How many, ” Look the other way, excuses is the citizens going to put up with? Isn’t justice meted out susposed to be blind and equal, that isn’t if your a democrat or Republican?
Pelosi has misinterpreted the meanings of justice vs: revenge.
The most common comment heard is” Joe Biden is Incompetent and shows poor Judgement , ” April 27Th. 2020, Pelosi Endorses Joe Biden For President .. ” From United Press International…what does this say about Nancy Pelosi??
The “Socialist Democrat Party State” political officers, Gestapo, Woke and Cancel Culture are just getting started.
You will obey, be loyal and support the “Socialist Democrat Party State” or you will be classified as
“Enemies of the State”.
24 Aug. 2020 – Monday on MSNBC’s “Live,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)
referred to President Donald Trump and his Republican supporters as
“domestic enemies” and “enemies of the State”.
And the Nazi Nancy Pelosi is determined to destroy her enemies of her state.
Trump said don’t go to this rally. It’s a setup. I agree and think that should be obvious to everyone. Nancy plans to use it just like she has the original one.
I wouldn’t be shocked on bit, to see that it’s already been infiltrated by the leftist anarchs PAID FOr by the FBI..
What’s the difference between law abiding citizens and criminals? Criminals are enclosed in fences and bars!! DC is a fine example.
I thought the difference was the Criminals were the ones in charge of DC!
