Kinky abortion truther crowd rally founder slams arrests

In a fiery press conference on Tuesday, the founder of the Justice for J6 rally at the Capitol said prosecutors and elected officials weren’t doing enough to stop those who rioted at the recent state of the union address. Of the four people arrested in connection with the mass protests, only one is accused of violent acts and most are being charged with trespassing.

“That is a horror show,” Brian Levin, director of the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University, San Bernardino, said of the charges against those in jail.

Levin led a press conference Monday to announce the rally, to be held on the National Mall on Sept. 16. Organizers say they want to celebrate the thousands of nonviolent protesters who were allegedly victimized by prosecutors and police.

Twenty-four people have been charged with felonies in connection with Tuesday’s events, and a few dozen others are being charged with disorderly conduct, according to the arrest records.

“And while I commend the good police in attendance this morning, and wish they would continue to do this during events of the Supreme Court or even the grand jury process, not once did I hear them say ‘although I’m glad they’re here, there’s little value to it because of the threat of violence,’” Levin said of the leaders of Wednesday’s New York protests.

On Tuesday, Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser said many of the people in jail and on charges of rioting Monday were making bad decisions. The Washington Post reported that several of the four arrested in connection with violent acts were likely familiar faces at protests around the city. The Post also said that one of the four, Stanley Martin Massey, 29, a New York City resident, had been arrested in June after being caught with a switchblade knife at an anti-violence rally in College Park.

Video of the protesters causing a commotion in the Capitol gallery has circulated online since Tuesday, although police have not provided much information as to the nature of the charges. In a video posted Tuesday, the protesters can be seen storming the camera’s view without any trouble. In the court case, the photos of those who face misdemeanor charges included some people taken during the course of the protest.
