Never Trump Leader Ben Shapiro Believes Jan. 6 Patriots Should ‘Rot in Jail’ for U.S. Capitol Protest
Conservative talker Ben Shapiro, once a prominent leader of the ‘Never Trump’ movement, has come out in favor of the mistreatment of the Jan. 6 protesters who are being kept in Gulag-type conditions by the Biden regime.
During an appearance on HBO’s Real Time With Bill Maher, Shapiro told liberal panelists that there were roughly 1,000 pro-Trump patriots on Jan. 6 who deserve to be stripped of their civil liberties and crushed by Biden.
“Forty-thousand people did not assault the Capitol,” Shapiro said. “There were maybe 1,000 people. That is not making light of the evil of those people, who all will end up rotting in prison, as they should.”
Shapiro’s comments come as a movement of prominent Republicans, led by Reps. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), Paul Gosar (R-AZ), Louie Gohmert (R-TX) and Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), fight for the pro-Trump ralliers who are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
“I think it’s outrageous and I have no problem saying that these January 6th defendants are being treated like political prisoners of war,” Greene said during a recent appearance on Newsmax TV.
“One of the things I did last week in California is I toured the border, and I also got to see one of the detention facilities that ICE and our U.S. Marshalls use, and I can tell you for a fact illegals that break our laws…are treated far better than the Jan. 6 defendants,” she added.
On the House floor, Gaetz brought up the “14,000 hours of tape could also show us who was animating that violence,” implying that deep state agents may have provoked the violence on Jan. 6 through confidential informants or other clandestine means.
“Whether they were connected in any way, directed any way – by federal agencies. It raises great suspicion that we are unable to get access to this information as members of Congress,” he said.
Big League Politics has reported on the abusive practices being flaunted by federal authorities as the Biden regime brings the war on terror to the homeland to be used against conservative patriots:
“Federal prosecutor Michael Sherwin appeared on CBS News’ 60 Minutes on Sunday where he admitted that he charged as many people as quickly as possible regardless of the evidence to put a chilling effect on the 1st Amendment rights of Trump supporters.
“After the 6th, we had an inauguration on the 20th. So I wanted to ensure, and our office wanted to ensure that there was shock and awe that we could charge as many people as possible before the 20th,” Sherwin told CBS News.
He added: “And it worked because we saw through media posts that people were afraid to come back to D.C. because they’re like, “If we go there, we’re gonna get charged.”’
Sherwin made it clear that the feds went after people who had gone viral regardless of whether they perpetrated any violence or committed any actual crime.
“So the first people we went after, I’m gonna call the internet stars, right? The low-hanging fruit. The ‘zip-tie guy,’ the ‘rebel flag guy,’ the ‘Camp Auschwitz guy.’ We wanted to take out those individuals that essentially were thumbing their noses at the public for what they did,” Sherwin said.”
While real conservatives are taking a stand, Shapiro appears on liberal talk shows and endorses heinous violations of civil liberties against Trump supporters. It’s no wonder why Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg drives so much traffic to Shapiro’s blog as the neoconservative pundit is clearly controlled opposition.
