Proud Boys leader, Henry Tarrio, who is known by followers as “Enrique”, has been sentenced to 300 days in jail for burning a Black Lives Matter flag. Meanwhile Antifa is burning American flags with impunity.
But the story goes deeper than just burning a flag. The real crime they decided to stick to Tarrio was carrying an “extended mag” on him at the time which has now been classified as illegal. The BLM flag that he burned got him 60 days jail time and the rest for the the mag.
The 60 days wasn’t for burning a “BLM” flag exactly either. It was because it wasn’t his flag to burn. He was presented it at a rally and he burned it, not knowing that it was a flag stolen from a church.
This is the the courts trying to make an example of him to all conservatives. Let them know that they will throw the book at them. Antifa and left wingers however are being let go when they they don’t just take flags from churches and citizens, but burn them to the ground. Our government has let those thugs go and get away with their crimes, but throw the book at Henry.
Both are bad in our opinion. Stealing and destroying someone’s property should not be condoned, but letting mobs and riots get away with billions in destruction isn’t right either. The worst is holding one party accountable while letting the other slide. That is not the blind justice our country was founded on.
