Capitol insurrectionist thrown back in jail

Branch Trumpvidian terrorist Doug Jensen of Des Moines, Iowa promised a Federal judge that he’d be a good little insurrectionist if he got to go home on home confinement. As part of the deal there were strict conditions, including avoiding using the internet. Well, we all know well that worked out. He was fairly quickly busted for listening to a right streaming service in his garage that was pumping out conspiracy theories. And his wife, who had agreed to be his third party custodian, completely abrogated her responsibilities by leaving streaming services spouting off right wing garbage on when she went to work.

After he was busted, Jensen was ordered to appear at a hearing that was held this morning. U.S. District Court Judge Timothy Kelly – an Orange Florida Retiree appointee BTW – wasn’t having any of Jensen’s excuses and ordered him back to jail for violating the conditions he had earlier agreed to in order to leave jail and return home to Iowa. This was a guy who said he was deceived by online conspiracies but was busted continuing to seek out such conspiracy theories.

While his lawyer likened this to a compulsion, I call bullshit on that. The only problem Jensen had was that he and his fellow terrorists think ecause they’re white males they are above the laws and rules most of his fellow Americans follow. He thought he and his fellow terrorists would get at most a slap on the wrist and authorities would look the other way if they continued their activities. Well, one Branch Trumpvidian just found out the hard way that’s not going to be the case and hopefully it sends a message to his fellow followers that they’re not above the law.
