For some sick reason, Teddy Wilson at Rolling Stone magazine believes the nearly 800 protesters on January 6 who were arrested on trumped-up charges do not deserve capable legal representation.
Rolling Stone published an article attacking the January 6th defendants this week and targeting the Americans who donated to help these people gain capable representation in court.
A vast majority of the J6ers who were arrested were accused of walking into the US Capitol — something they had no idea was against the law, especially since the police officers were waving them in.
Cara Castronuova posted a video of nearly 250 patriotic Americans peacefully walking into the US Capitol on January 6.
The video shows they were waved in by police. It is clear no violence or crime was committed by the people in this video.
Now, those same Americans are being hunted down by the Biden regime with the intent of destroying them and their families.
Today Rolling Stone noted more than 100 crowdfunding campaigns have been created to solicit donations to help pay their legal bills.
Rolling Stone then reports that The Gateway Pundit founder and editor-in-chief Jim Hoft contributed at least $33,000 in donations to over two dozen political prisoners.
The Gateway Pundit’s sister website AmericanGulag.org raised over $108,000 for the J6er political prisoners.
Thanks to you, our readers, the Gateway Pundit also raised hundreds of thousands for fundraising campaign for numerous January 6 prisoners and their families.
Rolling Stone‘s obvious intent of this hit piece is to shame us. But they are wrong. We wear this as a badge of honor.
The Gateway Pundit organization and family are very proud funders of the January 6 political prisoners. Our hearts go out to these prisoners and their families.
Thank you so very much!
Rolling Stone reported:
Jim Hoft, the founder and editor-in-chief of right-wing conspiracy news site Gateway Pundit, has made at least $33,000 in donations to the crowdfunding campaigns of two dozen defendants — more than any other single donor. These donations include $7,000 to a campaign for Jeremy Brown, a member of the Oath Keepers, and $3,000 to the campaign for Felicia Konold, who is affiliated with the Proud Boys.
“His Gateway Pundit articles about fraudulent votes or other problems with the election were a commonly referenced ‘source’ leading into the insurrection that helped to stir up Trump’s base and likely helped make some people feel like some version of corrective action was required,” Cooter says.
Gateway Pundit has continued to publish unfounded conspiracy theories, including the alleged involvement of Antifa and undercover federal agents. Hoft did not respond to a request for comment from Rolling Stone.
American Gulag, a website operated by Hoft that claims to provide “sunshine and publicity to the scores of political prisoners wrongfully imprisoned as a result of the protest on January 6th,” has raised more than $106,000 on GiveSendGo. The campaign page claims that any funding “raised over and above the amount needed for our investigations will be applied to legal fees and other expenses incurred.”
“Regardless of whether Hoft himself genuinely believed the election was ‘stolen,’ he and Trump had a symbiotic relationship. Supporting Trump and efforts to keep him in office was consistent with Hoft’s brand,” Cooter says. “Trump, in turn, reportedly read the Pundit and boosted Hoft’s reputation among his supporters. Trump remaining in office likely would have been beneficial to Hoft’s bottom line and potentially to his ability to remain present on more mainstream platforms like Twitter.”
