Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee is angry that only about 300 people have been arrested for the rioting in the Capitol on January 6th when there were 40,000 Trump supporters in town that day “with the mindset to overturn a legitimate election and to kill the Speaker, the Vice President, and Members of Congress…What kind of justice is that?”

I can’t believe I have to explain this to someone over the age of five, much less a Congress member of over 25 years' standing, but here goes:

They weren’t arrested because they didn’t commit a crime. What you’re pushing is called “guilt by association,” an idea Democrats used to oppose. The 40,000 peaceful pro-Trump protesters were just exercising their First Amendment rights, which they have a right to do…you know, under the First Amendment.

One Twitter commenter suggested that Lee was advocating arresting people just for thinking. I can see how that would be advantageous for politicians like her.

    Lee is a rotten apple and should be removed from her post due to her blatent lies and potential for harm to Conservative citizens.

    These politicians are mostly very ill educated and so selfish that it is mind-boggling. Also, they are trying to create the illusion that there was a riot--but no Trump supporters were found with any weapons and of the five who died, four were Trump supporters. Of those who crashed into the Capitol, many were proven to be Anti-Trump and Antifa supporters. This 'guilt by association' is a vicious and unwarranted smear and we must fight back against the ;cancel culture that is trying to ruin America. DEFEAT HR 1 or we shall never have an honest election again.

    The democrats planned the Assault, with Antifa, and BLM had police escorts to the the capital and the capital police opened the door and guided the BLM and Antifa thugs thru the building. Pelosi and company should be the ones arrested.

    It's got to be a pleasure when democrats get to call for someone else's arrest.

    She needs to get a job as a mind reader for the CIA if she knew that the "Armed Insurrectionists" had the "mindset to... kill the Speaker, the Vice President, and Members of Congress…

    How does she know what was in the peoples mind ? Most of them were still listening to the speech when this started happening. They sure did not care if anyone was arrest in the summer, when they were bashing police, burning building, and stealing things. The people were let into the capital, if you watch the video you can see that the doors were open for them by the Capital Police. we all konw it was a inside job

    The really serious problem with this is that arresting people for expressing a grievance is the same as arresting members of Congress for actually doing what they are supposed to do. 'LUDICROUS WITH A CAPITAL "LUD"!

    I can't believe people are still buying this crap that these were Trump supporters that caused the problems. These rioters were brought in by Pelosi so she could blame it on Trump. People will believe anything the lying liberal media dishes them. Such ignorant people in the USA!

    If this woman truly wanted law breakers arrested she would be advocating for all criminals that looted, destroyed & tried to burn down our country during the summer. People that support Pres Trump are only executing their first amendment rights. If this horrible woman really wanted what was right she & her fellow Democrats would not be trying to destroy our wonderful country right before our eyes.

    Domestic enemies like her will never stop, until they are voted out.

    Still wondering how Rep. Lee made the pick to congress. America's weakness is our selection of the "village idiots". Please, people, we have to primary these people out.

    How about we state with the VP who payed to get BLM and Antifa people out of jail for all the crimes they committed against we the people and our city's and business and the murders they committed. You wont to go there Mam? You first get the 2/4 out of your eye before you can get the small wood chip out of some one else eye.

    I swear these liberal "drama queens" lack serious logic. Are we surprised she would take that position? For four years we had peaceful rallies, a love fest, the fact a few idiots doesn t have a thing to do with our President or 99% of his supporters......Pelosi has quite a dramatic gig around our capital, another performance

    I agree with her---there should be more arrest---like Pelosi, AOC and the rest of the "Squid" and all the other liberals that started it. Jackson-Lee has her head so far up her rear-end she don't even know where she is.

    SJL has become the poster girl for EVERYTHING that is wrong with what used to be called the Democrat Party, but is now in the final stages of becoming full-blown FASCIST under Schumer, Pelosi, SJL and others of their freedom-killing, Constitution-hating ilk. How did we let our country sink this low, and can we ever get it back to where it needs to be without an outright 2nd American Revolution or Civil War II? With democrats engaged in wholesale and nationwide VOTE FRAUD that is designed to keep THEM in power FOREVER, what other choices are left to us???

    Wow! How about arrests for actually committing crimes--like those rioters last summer who burned buildings and destroyed businesses then were bailed out by the current VP? 300 sounds like a lot to me and was she aware none of them were armed--no guns were found, so does she assume they were going to spray them to death with bear spray or pepper spray?! It was a more peaceful protest than any we saw from last summer BLM & Antifa were a part of this one too--doubt we'll ever know the truth.

    Sheila Jackson Lee is an idiot, if those at the capital had been mostly black and democrat, she would be saying what she's saying

    Let's start by arresting Sheila Jackson Lee if for no other reason than just being herself. And then, we arrest all the idiots who keep electing her.
