Regretful Oaf Creeper Leader Said Having Rifles on Jan. 6 Would Have 'Fixed It Right Then and There'

The trial of five members of the Oath Keepers militia group who participated in the Jan. 6 Capitol riot began Monday in the D.C. district courthouse. Stewart Rhodes, Kelly Meggs, Jessica Watkins, Thomas Caldwell, and Kenneth Harrelson are standing trial just across the street from the white marbled complex where a little less than two years ago a crowd of Trump supporters beat police and stormed the halls of Congress in an attempt to prevent the certification of the 2020 election.

Following opening arguments, the prosecution presented footage of Oath Keeper founder Stewart Rhodes shortly after Jan. 6, asserting that his “only regret is that they should have brought rifles,” and that having been armed inside the Capitol would have “fixed it right then and there.”

Rhodes and his counterparts were indicted on charges of seditious conspiracy. According to the Department of Justice, “Rhodes conspired with his co-defendants and others to oppose by force the execution of the laws governing the transfer of presidential power by Jan. 20, 2021.” The DOJ’s argument against the conspirators centers around claims that under Rhodes’ direction members of the Oath Keepers and their allies conspired to carry out what amounted to a paramilitary offensive against the U.S. government on Jan. 6. If convicted, the charge of seditious conspiracy carries a maximum 20-year sentence.

“These conspirators’ narrative is that they were patriots. They were not,” the DOJ argued in its opening statement. Like many of the Jan. 6 cases that have gone to trial, the prosecution took advantage of the defendants’ willingness to document their activity and leave an electronic footprint. The DOJ quoted extensively from communications between the Oath Keepers, including instructions from Rhodes on Jan. 8 to purge any references to Jan. 6 from their social media and “shut the fuck up” about what had happened.

3. Having a gun changes the way you think and the way your mind

works. It gives one power, invincibility. An unimaginable sense of rightness and destiny.

History is written by the winners and when a gun convinces you that you will win nothing else matters and there is no reason.

You become the destroyer of worlds . . .

5. Moron probably thought TFG would back them up with the Army.

Although TFG probably would have if he had done a better job stacking army leadership with his sycophants.
