Are we reading this right?
Because it’s hard to believe.
Enrique Tarrio, the former leader of the Proud Boys, has been slapped with a 22-year prison sentence over the January 6 incident at the Capitol.
And get this—the man wasn’t even in Washington on that fateful day! Arrested two days earlier on unrelated charges, Tarrio was nowhere near the Capitol steps.
So what “crime” did he commit that justifies locking him up for over two decades?
Now, let’s call this what it is: a blatant, in-your-face example of the Deep State doing what it does best—manipulating narratives to serve its agenda.
Tarrio’s sentence is not just the longest doled out for the events surrounding January 6; it’s a critical piece in a larger, ominous puzzle.
By laying the blame on Tarrio, who was NOT present during the event, are they setting the stage for a grander plan to go after President Trump, who also had no direct involvement with the violence that took place?
It’s a glaring sign that something much more sinister is afoot.
Judge Timothy Kelly claims Tarrio was ‘the ultimate leader of that conspiracy’—again, of an event he did not even attend.
If that doesn’t sound like an orchestrated move to pin down and vilify key figures in conservative circles, then what does?
It’s as if they’re laying down breadcrumbs to guide public opinion towards a darker, premeditated conclusion.

It’s nothing less than a shocking trampling of justice, a mockery of the principles our great nation was founded on. And if they can twist the narrative this far, who’s to say how much further they’re willing to go?
So as Enrique Tarrio starts his 22-year sentence for a crime with a highly questionable basis, let’s not lose sight of the bigger picture. What we’re witnessing is not justice; it’s a highly calculated move designed to take down anyone who opposes the current regime. And it begs the question—whose neck is on the chopping block next?
Shame on them. Truly, shame on them.
The Daily Mail has more details:
Former Proud Boys boss Enrique Tarrio has been sentenced to 22 years in federal prison after begging a judge for mercy after commanding the Capitol siege – the longest sentence handed down over January 6.
Tarrio, 39, was the final leader of the neo-fascist group convicted of seditious conspiracy to be sentenced and faced 33 years in prison. Judge Timothy Kelly ruled that Tarrio was ‘the ultimate leader of that conspiracy,’ but still did not abide by the government’s sentence request.
The far-right propagandist wasn’t in Washington on January 6 – he was arrested two days earlier in a separate case – but he was convicted of helping put in motion and encourage the violence interrupted Congress’ certification of Biden’s electoral victory after Donald Trump’s electoral loss.
Hold on a minute—let’s add another layer to this already staggering tale of deep-state machinations.
Enrique Tarrio, who we’ve already established wasn’t even in Washington, D.C., on January 6th, also condemned the events that unfolded that day.
Yes, you read that right: He condemned the events.
He stood before a judge and offered a heartfelt apology, labeling the incident as a “national embarrassment.”
So how does the court respond?
By locking him up for 22 years!
Tarrio went as far as to say, “The citizens of D.C. deserve better,” and “What happened on January 6 was a national embarrassment.”
Do these sound like the words of someone who orchestrated seditious conspiracy?
Tarrio even had his legal team clarify that his social media comments had zero direct influence on the Capitol riot.
Yet, he’s still held as “the ultimate leader of that conspiracy,” in Judge Timothy Kelly’s words.

Enrique Tarrio was sentenced to 22 years in prison even though he wasn’t even at the Capitol on January 6th.
For comparison, a court recently sentenced a serial child rapist to less than half of that time.
10 years for serial child rape.
22 years for January 6.

What kind of upside-down justice system are we living in? If a man who wasn’t present and even criticized the event gets 22 years behind bars, what can we expect when it comes to President Trump?
Trump, who—let’s make it crystal clear—had nothing to do with inciting violence on January 6th.
If the powers-that-be in Washington, D.C., can ignore facts and evidence to lay the hammer down on Tarrio, what’s stopping them from doing the same to our 45th President?
The National Review confirms Tarrio’s feelings on J6:
Tarrio spoke on his own behalf and pleaded for leniency during his sentencing hearing on Tuesday. He apologized to law enforcement and Washington, D.C., residents for the events of January 6.
“The citizens of D.C. deserve better,” Tarrio said. “What happened on January 6 was a national embarrassment.”
He explained that he was angry at the time because Trump lost the 2020 election and he kept hearing false allegations that the election was stolen.
“I am not a political zealot. Inflicting harm or changing the results of the election was not my goal,” he said. “Please show me mercy.”
Tarrio’s attorneys sought to separate his social-media comments from the Capitol riot.
“Did he say some things that he shouldn’t have? Did he celebrate?…Sure,” Tarrio’s defense attorney Sabino Jauregui said on Tuesday. “But he did not have any direct influence, any direct orders.”
Jauregui argued Tarrio had “no way to know” what would ultimately transpire on January 6.
It’s downright terrifying to think about the lengths to which the Deep State will go to enforce its narrative. Tarrio’s sentence isn’t just a blow to him; it’s a dire omen for conservatives and for anyone who dares to question the ruling elites.
This kind of justice, where facts take a backseat to political agendas, threatens the very core of our democratic institutions.
So mark my words, if they can ignore facts to throw Tarrio under the bus, they’ll have no qualms about doing the same to President Trump.
It’s a slippery slope from here, and we need to be vigilant.
Who knows who they’ll try to silence next?
Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.
And right now, justice is on life support.
