Some people cheered when people who protested at the Capitol on January 6, 2021, were rounded up by the FBI, thrown into jail, kept for months without charges, denied bail and access to counsel, and sentenced to long prison terms from trespassing charges of the type routinely dismissed for left-wing protesters. These same people will be delighted to learn that the Biden/Garland DOJ is now extending this treatment to people who protest in front of abortion clinics.
Last week, the FBI sent a SWAT team in a dawn raid to arrest a pro-life protester, even though his lawyer had already negotiated an agreement for him to turn himself in peacefully. Eleven more were arrested this week as the radical left Biden DOJ continues its crackdown on political opponents.
Worth noting: The FBI has yet to make a single arrest for acts of arson, vandalism, and violence against crisis pregnancy centers. Indeed, the FBI confiscated security camera footage of a crisis pregnancy center firebombing and refused to return it on the basis that it might inspire “right-wing” violence.
There are two standards of justice in this country; one for supporters of the ruling party, and another for its opponents.
There comes a point where choosing not to stand is to make a stand. FBI field agents stood by while the Biden DOJ dropped cases against criminals who rioted, set fires, looted, and assaulted officers during the nationwide tantrum after the death of St. George Floyd. They remain silent as the administration takes no action to find members of Jane’s Revenge, the group claiming to attack pregnancy centers, or the criminals destroying churches.
Yet they don their gear and roll up to the houses of nonviolent pro-life activists with guns drawn. Field agents are no longer passive actors simply taking orders. They are active participants in helping the Biden DOJ enforce two standards of justice. When Republicans take control of Congress next year, both agencies need radical reforms from the leadership suite in D.C. to the offices in the field.
Perhaps, should the Republican Party win a congressional majority next year, they can hold hearings into these matters. Remember the Republican-led hearings into Fast and Furious, Benghazi, IRS Harassment of Conservative Political Groups, and the Veterans Administration Scandal that let 300,000 veterans die waiting for health care while VA bureaucrats awarded bonuses to each other? Remember how those hearings punished those responsible and led to massive reforms at those respective agencies?
Yeah, neither do I.Published in
