Sorry, not sorry: Some 1/6 rioters change tune after apology
[apnews.com]

good read
for instance:

Appearing before a federal judge after pleading guilty to a felony charge in the deadly Capitol riot, former West Virginia lawmaker Derrick Evans expressed remorse for letting down his family and his community, saying he made a “crucial mistake.”

Less than a year later, Evans is portraying himself as a victim of a politically motivated prosecution as he runs to serve in the same building he stormed on Jan. 6, 2021. Evans is now calling the Justice Department’s Jan. 6 prosecutions a “miscarriage of justice” and describes himself on twitter as a “J6 Patriot.”

“Some ppl have said I need to apologize and condemn #J6 if I want to win my election as the media will attack me,” he tweeted recently after announcing his bid for a U.S. House seat in 2024. “I will not compromise my values or beliefs. That’s what politicians do. We need Patriots not politicians.”

I guess he sees the admitting of guilt of a crime he thinks he didn't do was him not compromising his patriotism. (Sorry for all the negatives.) I guess his ideal of patriotism is to cut and run when staring directly at some pretty bad consequences.

"..as the media will attack me”

Challenge accepted.


“I will not compromise my values or beliefs, this time for sure!'

You are a lying weasel and will make a good politician for your party.

At least in your mind.






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

No. The media will not attack him.

They will report what he did.

Then real patriots will put him away.

lol. j/k.

He will probably get elected and add to the Boebert/MTG/etc brainrust.

Oops. Typo.
