I've said it before and I'll say it again: we should have listened to Ron Paul.
Fortunately it's not too late (to listen to Ron Paul, that is).
The Former Congressman is calling out our broken judicial system and the manner in which it's handling the January 6th protesters.
Dr. Ron Paul has warned of Soviet-style political persecution of conservatives amid detention and torture of January 6 protesters. In an article on Monday, Paul wrote the conviction of protester Paul Hodgkins was a miscarriage of justice.
“He said the words Joe Biden’s Justice Department wanted to hear,” he explained. “Words reminiscent of the sort of Soviet-style confessions beaten out of political dissidents the world over: ‘Joseph R. Biden is rightfully and respectfully the president of the United States.'”
Paul went on to say Hodgkins did not commit any violence and he was punished for his political views.
“The saving of democracy by putting a man away to prison for eight months and destroyed his life, his family, the whole works because he walked into the Capitol, took a picture, did no act of violence whatsoever,” he expressed. “He was number one of the list. He was the enemy of the state.”
Dr. Paul pointed out around 500 conservatives have been faced with similar political charges and sentences for protesting on Capitol Hill. He warned, “this kind of totalitarian justice” would soon be coming for Biden supporters as well.
In case you forgot what happened, here's a video of the "insurrection." Notice how they aren't toppling statues, breaking stuff, and setting things on fire. They didn't even knock over the velvet ropes.
