It fits in well with the subject of this post that I could not easily find a picture for the top that showed the 1/6/21 protestors being arrested, jailed, or perhaps visited in jail? Why no pictures?
I'll tell you why there aren't easily available pictures. I doubt that there was any chance for family, friends, and other supporters to even have a chance to talk to them once "our" Federal Police Force got ahold of each. Peak Stupidity has written hardly anything about the plight of these patriotic Americans who did nothing more illegal and dastardly than trespass on Federal (well, "OUR") property. We had posts about the event itself (see Patriots Breach the Senate, The Battering of Sick Nick, No Justice for Ashlii Babbitt, and Murderer of Ashli Babbitt revealed: Michael Leroy Byrd), but nothing about what's happened to these Americans.
That's out of sheer disgust at the evil we see now in the Feral Gov't in the Washington Federal Shithole. The idea of the site is to write about stupidity, not so much pure evil. They do go hand-in-hand a lot though. Here's the basic formula (derived, I gotta assume, from Newton's Laws of Motion or the 1st Law of Thermodynamics as almost everything else is): Stupidity + Power = Evil.
There was a post going around the web recently containing a letter that is supposed to be from one of these men stuck for months now without trial in jail in Washington, F.S. Maybe someone else here can tell me if it's legit, but I have no reason to doubt the extremely poor treatment of these prisoners, health-wise and Constitution-wise. This is more 3rd-Worldly behavior here, much more important to those involved, of course, than my experience among the 3rd-Worldly crowd at a fast food joint.
I don't know how many Americans know what's going on there. Washington, F.S. is filled with wanna'-be Woodward & Bernstein media types, so you'd think a few of them might be on the egregious story for us. Nah. I they had a story about people held under conditions like this in El Salvador or Peru by the right-wing, we could read whole articles in the NY Times or Washington Post about it.*
Why are the no big protests on the streets about this by American patriots? My quick answer is that most American patriots have jobs. Back in the 1960's there'd be crowds outside the jail building all hours of the day and night. It'd be one big protest party, till they let the guys out, which they would.** The divide between left and right aligns pretty well with the line between Americans with real jobs and those without.
Will Americans (and I do include myself here) get out in mass rallies for the January 6th political prisoners? It's sad to see it written about this country, but there's no way around it. These people are nothing other than political prisoners.
Back in the day, the music artists of the left, which are, say 95% of them, would get political in their songs. If one just listened for the music (as to Neil Young's guitar in Cortez the Killer), it didn't matter. However, I remember one particular with a theme about those poor political prisoners or missing children down in ... wherever. That one was U-2's Mothers of the Disappeared. I DID listen to the lyrics of that song. Would U-2 ever be so kind as to write a song about America's political prisoners, stuck down in a dungeon in the capital for daring to trespass in a government building?
(C'mon, Bono, drawing a blank, are you?)
* That's not to say I'd ever get it directly from those outlets of the Lyin' Press.
** The left knows how to do Constitutionality, when it helps them out, that is.
