It’s been a lovely time to be a violent Antifa or Black Lives Matter rioter this year. You can throw firebombs, rocks, fireworks and bricks at police.
You can commit arson and try to burn down a Federal building with people inside.
You can do pretty much what you want under the guise of protesting racial injustice.
If you are a Portland Oregon rioter, with a progressive and woke District Attorney, you don’t have to worry about staying in jail long. You’ll get out with no cash bail. And that’s if you’re even arrested.
Only 10% of the rioting terrorists in Portland ended up facing any charges at all as reported in August of 2020. That’s right. Charges against 90% them were dropped.
But if you are MAGA, it’s a whole different story. You don’t get the same treatment even if you’re committing the same crimes as the Portland thugs.
And you especially don’t get the same treatment if you get in front of an Obama-appointed judge. Then good luck to you.
The MAGA supporter, Richard Barnett, aged 60, who was photographed in the Capitol and sat at Nancy Pelosi’s desk is still in jail for his crimes which include unlawfully entering a restricted area with a lethal weapon (stun gun) plus disorderly conduct and theft of public property (an envelope). He could get 11 years in prison if he’s convicted.
That must have been some important envelope – maybe raised printing with gold foil.
On the envelope theft charge, Barnett said to a New York Times reporter, “I didn’t steal (an envelope)…I put a quarter on her desk, even though she ain’t (expletive) worth it.”
So let’s compare what Barnett did to the Antifa crimes in Portland that weren’t charged. And the Portland thugs are actual dangerous terrorists who are still operating in Portland to this day.

So what did the Portland terrorists do that was so very harmless that they were set free with no bail and had their charges dropped???
Here’s the list…
Interfering with a police officer, disorderly conduct, riot, resisting arrest, assaulting an officer, attempted escape, harassment, trespassing, attempted assault on peace officer, criminal mischief, arson, possession of a destructive device, unlawful use of a weapon, reckless burning, driving-related charges, attempted assault, unlawful possession of a firearm, menacing, robbery and felon in possession of a firearm.
Yes, I can see how the MAGA guy is the REAL criminal and Antifa is just very very misunderstood.
The selected enforcement of crimes in this country has always been ridiculous and unfair but now it is full-blown political.
