Paul Hodgkins was sentenced for his actions on January 6th at our nation’s Capitol. He was one of thousands at the Capitol that day and pled guilty to a felony charge of obstructing an official proceeding. He was entenced to 8 months after prosecutors sought 18. But what’s different about his case than many others going on around our country right now?
Specifically, the Antifa and Black Lives Matter events. All of these events have resulted in deaths, destruction, and multiple crimes being committed. If a crime has been committed, it should be punished. Instead, we see judges throwing these cases out right and left. These terrorists are getting away with things that shoudl never be happening.
While the left wants to call what happened on January 6th an insurrection, the actions of Antifa and BLM are truly insurrections. The difference is that these groups share the same initiatives as the Democrats. They seek to destroy our nation. They want to overthrow freedom and establish communism or socialism as they like to call it. They are not fighting for change and equality as they claim. It’s all a cover for an attempt to overthrow what it means to be American.
The question now becomes where will the Democrats stop in their pursuit of punishment for anyone that differes from them. They have already called for a registry for Trump voters. Is there anything to stop their attempts to jail anyone who opposes them?
Perhaps it’s a good time to remember the words of our founding fathers from many decades ago. “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government…”
The only difference in Hodgkins situation and the others is the politics. It’s not about being American anymore and pursuing the American values. For the radical left, it’s all about the politics.
