Jan. 6 Protestors Rally at Capitol

'Remember those in prison, as if you were there yourself... '

(Ken Silva, Headline USA) A roughly 20-foot wide “Trump won” banner was displayed prominently outside the U.S. Supreme Court building Friday morning. Dozens of right, white and blue-wearing demonstrators milled around as loud speakers boomed carnival music.

Two years after Jan. 6, 2021, a much more subdued rally was taking place Friday. This time, about as many protestors were locked inside the DC Central Detention Facility — more than 100 are still in pretrial detention — as there were outside protesting.

Nevertheless, the protestors still hope their presence would shine light on the controversial 2020 presidential election results. A protestor live-streaming the event for Freedom Express Media said the purpose of the rally outside of the Supreme Court building was to encourage justices to take up the case of Brunson v. Adams, which seeks to reinstate Donald Trump as U.S. president.

Around 11 a.m., counterprotestors started blaring profane rap music, seemingly in an attempt to disrupt the rally.

“You idiots are traitors!” one agitator yelled.

“God bless you,” a pro-Trump demonstrator responded. “Come pray with us.”

Later, the protestors were scheduled to travel to the Capitol building to demonstrate in remembrance of Ashli Babbitt, Rosanne Boyland, Kevin Greeson and Benjamin Phillips.

Babbit was murdered by Capitol Police and Boyland allegedly died of “acute amphetamine intoxication” after being severely beaten by police. Phillips and Greeson were said to have died of “natural” causes.

The day was scheduled to end with a candle-light vigil outside the DC Central Correctional Facility — what protestors have referred to as the “DC gulag.”

According to Citizens Against Political Persecution co-founder Cara Castronuova, more than 100 Jan. 6 protestors are still being held in pretrial detention at the gulag.

“People need to come sit outside that jail,” said protestor Randy Ireland over a megaphone, quoting Hebrews 13:3. “Remember those in prison, as if you were there yourself. Remember also those being mistreated, as if you felt their pain in your own bodies.”
