Capitol stormer to judge: I don't need an ankle monitor because I had a 'Christian upbringing'

A far-right livestreamer who was arrested for participating in the breaching of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 asked a federal judge to remove his court-mandated GPS monitor, saying that he can be trusted since he was raised as a Christian and respects law enforcement, The Daily Beast reports.

Anthime Joseph Gionet, also known as “Baked Alaska,” has been charged with violent entry and disorderly conduct. He livestreamed a half-hour video of himself and others roaming around inside the Capitol — video that the FBI later used to identify and arrest him. In portions of the video, Gionet can be heard hurling profanity-laced insults at Capitol police — contradicting his claim of being a police supporter to the judge.

This Friday, Gionet’s lawyers argued that he “has no criminal record” and only entered the Capitol as a “journalist.” The lawyers, citing his alleged “Christian upbringing” and education in a “private Christian” school, added that Gionet “does not come from a background of violence and disdain for law enforcement” and should be allowed forgo wearing an ankle monitor while waiting for his trial
.

“Mr. Gionet made a music video several years back called ‘We Love the Cops.’ The video has been viewed tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of times on youtube,” the motion argues.

Gionet, a former BuzzFeed employee turned pro-Trump activist, is also facing unrelated charges for pepper-spraying a bouncer last year.

2. I agree. He does need to be in jail.

These "Christian" terrorists are all the more dangerous for their religious fanaticism.

4. Didn't he jump bail to go to the insurrection, then hide in Houston?

I'm sure his arguments are going to go over well...

5. LOL, that's funny!

So what about all of the African Americans who are Christians?

Black people are more active in religious services than any other race/ethnicity in the USA, after all, but would that even be an argument for them while in jail?

7. I'll have a side order of Christian upbringing with my white supremacy, please.

If I were his federal judge, I’d ask him to compare his life’s “ministry” with Christ’s ministry. Let’s see how long it takes for his defense to fall apart.

Got to confess, this Christian upbringing thing is hilarious (in an obviously sick and manipulative way).

9. Heinrich Himmler had a consrvative Christian upbringing, too

That didn't stop him from overseeing Auschwitz and Birkenau.

Toss this clown in the dungeon, and throw away the key.

Who knew?

Yeah, that always works out well.

15. The judge should've said, "For the stupidity of that argument, you get two ankle monitors."

17. He probably reasons that he was overturning the tables of the money changers and dove vendors.

 


Matthew 21:12-13, Mark 11:15-18

12 Jesus entered the temple courts and drove out all who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves. 13 “It is written,” he said to them, “‘My house will be called a house of prayer,’ but you are making it ‘a den of robbers.”


Jesus gives a thumbs-up to those who take it upon themselves to aggressively and violently disrupt what they don't agree with. Christianity goes way beyond "the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

18. Somehow

I don't think the judge is going to let Jesus vouch for him.

20. He should be arrested for that video alone



The Geneva Convention prohibits playing this to prisoners of war. It is truly bad.

21. Put the ankle monitor on him. And, get him to trial.

There are evil men in prison who could use the presence and guidance of a good man "educated in a private Christian" school.
