The Other Half Believes That Also. They Just Are Happy That’s True.

Half of America Says Jan 6 Protesters are 'Persecuted, Political Prisoners'. (thenationalpulse.com)

Peaceful protesters caught in the maelstrom of the January 6th riot at the U.S. Capitol are being held as “political prisoners” and are being persecuted by law enforcement, says a plurality of American voters.

The data, from a new Rasmussen poll, reveals that 49 percent of American “likely voters” either strongly or somewhat agree with the concept that the U.S. government is holding political prisoners. Forty-two percent are in disagreement, with nine percent “unsure”.

This means more people than not believe the January 6th protesters are being unjustly held by their government.

Let that sink in. A plurality of Americans thinks that the Federal Government is making political prisoners out of American citizens.

Think about that a moment longer.

For four years we heard about the Trump administrations abuse of norms. We heard they were autocratic and fascist.

Not once did the Trump administration even suggest that something like this might be a good idea.

This is what fascism looks like.

And you voted for it.
