A political prisoner of the arrests related to the Jan. 6 protests that took place at the United States Capitol Building in 2021 is speaking out from the D.C. prison to debunk claims that he is being held with “white supremacists.”
Troy Smocks, a 59-year-old black man who, in his own words, did not even attend the “Stop the Steal” rally on Jan. 6 last year, was arrested at his home by an FBI SWAT team nine days later, because he made “political social media posts that the new Democratic-controlled regime, did not like,” according to a report from the Gateway Pundit.
Smocks, who will reportedly be discharged from the D.C. jail in a few days, is just one example of hundreds of Americans who were arrested following even a cursory connection to the events that occurred on Jan. 6, when protesters entered the U.S. Capitol Building.
The mainstream media has since referred to the incident as an “insurrection” and Kamala Harris even ludicrously compared it to the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks of 2001.
Additionally, the first anniversary of the Jan. 6 protest was commemorated in a press conference held by Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene and Matt Gaetz at the Capitol last week, where the mother of the singular, tragic casualty from the event, Ashli Babbitt, stated that, “I’m here because Americans do have the right to protest.”
Troy Smocks continued in his statement shared with the Gateway Pundit that the mainstream media had “purposely misled practically everyone on planet Earth into believing that January 6 was all about Donald Trump, and white supremacy…In addition, it is a lot easier for normal people to dislike white supremacists, in this so called ‘woke’ society.”
In Monday statement made through his Save America PAC, President Donald Trump also decried the “Fake News” narrative surrounding Jan. 6, calling it a “Fedsurrection” as new details about the incident have been brought to light through independent investigative journalism.
The political persecution of people like Troy Smocks, who did not even attend the Jan. 6 protests, should highlight to all Americans that Joe Biden’s America is markedly different from Trump’s America.
Free speech and the right to protest seems to be constantly under attack, but, according to President Trump, “Americans aren’t buying into” the attempts to smear the millions of people who voted for him.
