The President of the Chicago Fraternal Order of Police is firing back on establishment media narratives regarding Wednesday’s Capitol protests, condemning acts of vandalism and trespassing while pointing out reports of insurrection are wildly exaggerated.
John Cantazara told Chicago WBEZ that the protest amounted to vandalism and trespassing.
“If the worst crime here is trespassing, so be it. But to call these people treasonous is beyond ridiculous and ignorant.”
Cantazara cited doubt over the veracity of Joe Biden’s election as a motivating factor in the Wednesday protest, although he admitted concrete proof of election fraud wasn’t readily apparent.
“I don’t have any doubt that something shady happened in this election,” Catanzara said. “You’re not going to convince me that that many people voted for Joe Biden. Never for the rest of my life will you ever convince me of that. But, again, it still comes down to proof.”
“Evidence matters,” Catanzara said. “Until that appears, shame on them for what they did, but it was out of frustration. There’s no fights. There’s no, obviously, violence in this crowd. They pushed past security and made their way to the Senate chamber. Did they destroy anything when they were there? No.”
There were occasional incidences of theft and vandalism, although most of the trespassers merely moved through the building. The FBI has pledged to investigate and charge trespassers responsible for criminal acts during the disruptive protest.
“There was no arson, there was no burning of anything, there was no looting, there was very little destruction of property,” Catanzara told WBEZ. “It was a bunch of pissed-off people that feel an election was stolen, somehow, some way.”
Florida’s DeSantis Will Fly State Flags at Half Staff in Honor of Radio Legend Rush Limbaugh
Limbaugh was a Floridian.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis confirmed that he would issue an order to fly state and US flags at half staff in honor of radio legend Rush Limbaugh. Limbaugh died earlier this week of cancer.
DeSantis spokeswoman Meredith Beatrice confirmed that the governor would issue the order after Limbaugh’s funeral arrangements are announced. The flags will be flown at half staff the day of the radio legend’s burial.
Originally a native of Missouri, Limbaugh moved to West Palm Beach, Florida in the late 1980’s. He became the most-listened to radio show host in the history of the United States, if not the world over the duration of his career.
Speaking of Limbaugh’s legacy Thursday on Fox News, DeSantis credited appearances on Limbaugh’s show as pivotal moments for his 2018 campaign for Governor of Florida.
“He had me on when I was running for Governor,” DeSantis said. “I was getting the tar kicked out of me every day and he had me on the week before the election in 2018. He didn’t have a lot of guests. I was honored to be on his show a couple of times.”
He would have been great in radio even without the conservative thing. He’s just that talented. Obviously he was a conservative icon up there with Scalia, Reagan, and Buckley,” said DeSantis of Limbaugh.
Florida Democrats have rushed to assail the Florida radio legend’s character and blast DeSantis for recognizing his life, accusing Limbaugh of being a “racist.”
