A former firefighter charged in the Capitol riot took a bus organized by Turning Point USA to DC

A retired firefighter charged with assaulting Capitol police officers during the January 6 riot arrived in Washington DC by way of a bus organized by Turning Point USA, a recent court filing said.

Robert Sanford, 55, was arrested on January 14 in Pennsylvania for allegedly throwing a fire extinguisher at three Capitol police officers.

Turning Point USA is a conservative organization geared toward young people, mainly those in college. The group says its mission is "to identify, educate, train, and organize students to promote the principles of freedom, free markets, and limited government."

A few days prior to the riot, TPUSA founder Charlie Kirk, in a now-deleted tweet, advertised that its affiliate organization Turning Point Action would be sending more than 80 buses filled with Trump supporters to DC to "fight for the president." Advertisements also said the group would be offering free hotel rooms.

2. And those young people didn't get on those buses.

A bunch of retired 50 and 60 year old people did. Good try , deep thinkers.

4. Turning Point USA is a conservative organization geared toward young people


And yet Robert Sanford is 55 yrs old.

Those crazy young radicals. I guess Turning Point USA teaches those young'uns how to throw heavy fire extinguishers into a crowd of unarmed law enforcers.

8. Rich right-wingers are the usual funders of college GOP groups over the years.
