Mainstream media, Democrats and many Republicans, including former President Trump, have demonized the unarmed January-6 demonstrators at the Capitol and described them as ‘terrorists’ and ‘insurrectionists’ trying to overthrow the government. The protesters have been held in indefinite detention, tortured, beaten, and locked in solitary confinement in DC jails. A new poll shows that nearly half of voters believe these detainees are political prisoners. The poll also found widespread agreement that these prisoners were targeted by the FBI because they are “patriots.” -GEG

Despite the GOP establishment throwing Jan 6 protesters under the bus and staying silent as they’re being held in indefinite detention, tortured, beaten, racially abused and locked in solitary confinement in DC jails, half of Americans now recognize they’re “political prisoners,” according to a new poll.

From the Washington Examiner, “Half agree: Jan. 6 suspects are ‘political prisoners’ “:

In a shock survey likely to draw even more attention to this weekend’s “Justice for J6” rally, nearly half of voters believe those charged in the Capitol riots are political prisoners.

According to the latest Rasmussen Reports survey, 49% said that those jailed for violence and other charges are being held as “political prisoners.” Some 30% “strongly” agree.

Just 42% disagree, said the survey.

Notably, 45% of Democrats agree that the more than 500 arrested are political prisoners.

Rasmussen also found more agree that the FBI’s Jan. 6 dragnet is targeting “patriots.”

Asked to agree or disagree with this statement: “The Department of Justice and the FBI have targeted, imprisoned, and persecuted non-violent American patriots,” 48% agreed, and 46% disagreed.

As a reminder, these political prisoners were thrown under the bus by the GOP and even President Trump called for them to be prosecuted to “the fullest extent of the law.”

It took Trump six months to even mention Ashli Babbitt’s name.

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R) called the Capitol protesters “terrorists” who took part in a “terrorist attack” and said that “every terrorist needs to be fully prosecuted.”
