Former President Donald Trump called out the Department of Justice (DOJ) for sending the FBI to arrest pro-lifers across the country for alleged petty crimes.
Speaking to a crowd of supporters at his rally in Nevada, the former president said Joe Biden and his Democratic backers in the administration are “turning America into a police state,” citing the government’s humiliating life sentences and turning a blind eye . mass bombings of pro-life clinics at the hands of pro-choice terrorists;
“Before our eyes, Biden and his left-wing operatives are turning America into a police state,” Trump said, adding:
See what happens. After ignoring violent attacks on pro-life clinics, the Biden administration is rallying pro-life activists across the country. First, they arrested the minister you all read about, then this week they arrested grandparents with guns drawn, multiple agents raiding their homes, putting them in jail.
In September, the FBI raided the home of pro-life activist Mark Houck as his “screaming” children watched in horror on charges related to the FACE Act stemming from an incident in which Houck shoved a 72-year-old abortion activist which accompanied women at a planned parenthood clinic. Hook’s family claims the man was molesting his 12-year-old son.
Just last week, the Department of Justice (DOJ) reportedly charged 11 pro-life advocates with federal charges related to a 2021 protest at an abortion clinic in Tennessee. The majority of defendants could receive up to eleven years in prison.
“These people went out and protested beautifully, quietly, and now they’re in jail,” Trump said of the pro-life activists. “They protested outside abortion clinics and [the government] they are charged with offenses punishable by up to 11 years in prison. In many cases, they are grandparents and elderly people…” He continued:
These are peaceful patriots. You could agree with them. You don’t have to agree. They want to put them in jail for 11 years for doing what they have an absolute right to do. Democrats cage their political opponents, spy on their political opponents, silence dissent and use the full power of government, law enforcement and the media, the fake media.
The former president then called on “every liberal American” to oppose this tyranny in the upcoming midterm elections.
“We have to hold these elections. We cannot afford to wait. The only way evil will triumph is for good men and women to do nothing,” he concluded.
