Cry Me a River: The DC Rioters Ask For a Pardon

For every action, there is a reaction. In some circumstances, the reaction is taken by law enforcement and the legal system when laws are broken.

In the week and a half since the rioters broke into the Capitol building, there have been multiple arrests. Following the footsteps of you know, they have been complaining about mistreatment. The QAnon Shaman (otherwise known as Jake Angeli) has been whimpering that he is not receiving organic food while in prison. One of his fellow “protestors”, Jenna Ryan, claimed the following:

“I thought I was following my president. I thought I was following what we were called to do, flying there. He asked us to fly there. He asked us to be there. So I was doing what he asked us to do. So as far as in my heart of hearts, do I feel like a criminal? No,”

Cry me a f*cking river.

We all have the right to protest and speak out when we disagree with what our government is saying and doing. But there is a distinct line between protesting and mounting an insurrection because you are dumb enough to believe you know who’s lies.

What bothers me the most is Ms. Ryan’s statement is akin to the defense the Nazis made during the Nuremberg Trials. Otto Ohlendorf pleaded his case via the following:

Don’t you see, we SS men were not supposed to think about these things; it never even occurred to us. . . . We were all so trained to obey orders without even thinking that the thought of disobeying an order would simply never have occurred to anybody, and somebody else would have done just as well if I hadn’t. . . . I really never gave much thought to whether it was wrong. It just seemed a necessity.

I am going to end this post with the latest video from Ticked Off Vic, because he speaks the truth.

  1. One of my favourite sayings is, “Freedom of speech doesn’t mean freedom from consequences.” So many people get the first part, but not the second.
