An alleged Antifa terrorist was arrested yesterday with an active bomb near Florida rally in support of January 6 political prisoners.
“He was running fast, he was running away from something,” Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri said at a press conference on Friday. Bomb squad investigators from the F.B.I., Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office and the Tampa Police Department responded to the scene and determined the device was a “homemade M-type destructive device,” according to the affidavit.
Smith was purportedly targeting dozens of the attendees of a rally protesting the treatment of Jan. 6 suspects on the one-year anniversary of the U.S. Capitol riot.
Will the government provide counseling sessions for people traumatized by the incident?
Will the FBI use the arrest as a basis of launching hundreds of raids against Antifa supporters involved in years of violent attacks?
Or will the national mainstream media continue to ignore the story?
Oddly it took over three years for the FBI to acknowledge that the 2017 shooting of Congressional Republicans was actually a terrorist attack.
And they never bothered to investigate previous occupations of the Capitol. They were just exercises of free speech.
The Pelosi held a moment of silence for Capitol Police, none of whom died as a result of events on January 6, 2021. One died from a stroke, another was killed by a Black Nationalist in April. Two others committed suicide.
