There increasingly seems to be a two-tiered justice system in the United States, with rowdy left-wing “demonstrators” treated with lenience compared to those with conservative views, and Senate Homeland Security Committee member Ron Johnson, R-Wis., is pointing it out.
Johnson decried the “unequal application of justice” between people involved in the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol demonstration and those who populated violent Antifa and Black Lives Matter protests in numerous big cities over the past year, according to FOX News.
A letter signed by Johnson, Sen. Tommy Tuberville, R-Ala., and three other Republicans formally questions Attorney General Merrick Garland about “potential unequal justice” being applied to these protesters. “Life, Liberty & Levin” host Mark Levin covered the letter on his program.
While hundreds of suspects from the Capitol incident were catalogued in a DOJ online database, the letter contends, no such attention has been focused on alleged criminal behavior by participants in Black Lives Matter demonstrations across the country after the May 2020 death of George Floyd.
Some Capitol riot suspects also have been held in strict confinement, Johnson and Tuberville’s letter notes, saying that Garland should publicize the conditions in which Antifa suspects are or were being held.
Johnson told Levin that he, Tuberville, Sens. Mike Lee of Utah, Rick Scott of Florida and Ted Cruz of Texas, were the only signers of the letter since the media tends to “slaughter and attack” anyone who disputes their narratives.
