‘Imagine You Protested for BLM…’: Marjorie Taylor Greene Blasts Media For Refusing To Take Up Cause of Jan. 6 Inmates Held For Nearly A Year Without Bond Or Trial

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene took to Twitter on Wednesday to rip the ‘mainstream’ media over their refusal to report how several people being held in the D.C. Jail on charges related to the Jan. 6 riot have yet to receive bail or a trial after being locked up for nearly a year.

“1. Imagine you protested for #BLM and when the protests turned violent you were arrested and held for nearly a year, abused harshly pre-trial in jail, under the hateful oversight of a Deputy Warden that is a white rabid Trump supporter,” she wrote.

“The media stories would be NON-STOP.”

“2. They would win Pulitzer Prizes for courageous journalism,” she continued. Every single civil rights groups & civil rights giants would be protesting outside the jail and suing the entire Gov demanding release of the abused #BLM pre-trial defendants and the Deputy Warden’s head on a platter.”

3. Only that didn’t happen. At all,” the Georgia Republican added. #BLM protestors and violent rioters had over 90% of their charges dropped and NONE of them are languishing pre-trial in jail enduring hateful abuse under an entire system that hates them.

“But Pre-trial J6 defendants are being abused,” she declared.

“4. The FBI has targeted and arrested Americans who were at the Capitol on J6 and the Biden DOJ charged them. And it’s been nearly a year for pretrial J6 defendants under abuse by the Deputy Warden of the DC Jail, Kathleen Landerkin, who agrees w/ riots,” Greene continued. “But only BLM riots.”

“5. The extreme hateful views held by the very woman, Deputy Warden Kathleen Landerkin, who controls every aspect of pretrial J6 defendant’s lives in the DC Jail are so intense she has made sure J6’ers have been treated Unusually Cruel,” Greene continued in a tweet containing a link to a report on her House website.

“6. Not only did Deputy Warden Landerkin lock me & a few of my colleagues out of the jail calling us trespassers, hiding the abuse & conditions J6 defendants were in, she bragged about it and tweeted her extreme views on her now deleted Twitter page for the world to see,” she continued.

“7. Deputy Warden Kathleen Landerkin clearly has a particular disdain for me. Like many, she wrongly thinks J6 was an #insurrection even though NO ONE has been charged with Insurrection,” the Georgia firebrand continued. “And all I did was legally object to electoral college votes.

“Does she want to abuse me too?”

“8. How about that? Deputy Warden Kathleen Landerkin, who said ‘Fuck everyone who supports Trump’ and who abuses pretrial J6 defendants would love to have me in her disgusting jail where she wants to abuse me like the pretrial J6 defendants she has tortured in her DC Jail,” she continued.

“9. Yet there is so much irony in Deputy Warden Kathleen Landerkin’s tweets and belief system. Just like many Democrats, she complained about a ‘stolen election’ and wanted President Trump locked up, but now tortures people who rioted at the Capitol over a stolen election,” Greene said.

“10. In the past 20 years, Congressional Democrats objected 3 times to Republican Presidential elections, Deputy Warden Kathleen Landerkin retweeted that me and my colleagues who objected on J6 should be punished as traitors for simply objecting just like Democrats did.

“There’s more. Imagine being held in solitary confinement 23 hours/day by Deputy Warden Landerkin, who doesn’t want a border wall to keep out people breaking our laws & illegally invading with human trafficking & drugs,” she continued at a later point in her Twitter thread. “To her, the worst criminals are Trump supporters.”

“The unconstitutional abuse of Americans charged for the J6 riot at the Capitol must end immediately in the DC Jail, in the court systems, & other prisons & jails other J6 defendants are being held in across the country,” Greene wrote. “They should be released & home until their court date.”

“I was shocked and upset by the riot on J6 and will never defend the violence of that day. But I will stand up in the face of authoritarian political warfare and the two tiered justice system being weld [sic] against Trump supporters. We ALL should! And never allow it again.”
