Bannon slams FBI for political persecution of pro-life activist over altercation with pro-abortion activist outside planned parenthood

'"Just doing my job' is not good enough."

Mark Houck spoke with former White House strategist Steve Bannon on Tuesday's War Room, after a Philadelphia jury found the pro-life activist not guilty of violations of the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act.

On September 23, 2022, Houck's home, where his wife and children were, was swarmed by roughly 15 vehicles and dozens of armed federal SWAT officers. Houck was arrested during the incident.

Houck said that he believes the government knew it was a "flimsy case," saying that they approached him with a plea bargain that would have given him "a slap on the wrist" for him to plead guilty.

Houck told Bannon about his experience at the Federal Building in Philadelphia after being found not guilty, where he was put in a white room where he was chained to a table for six hours.

"Once they let me go they brought me to the US marshals in the same building, with the same shackles on. I was inching my feet along, and I made comment, 'why is this necessary? Can't I just walk with a normal gait? I don't know why you would have to put someone through that.' US marshals treated me like I was a convicted felon and treated me like no other person has treated me.

"When I finally emerged and came to be with my family... 9 or 10 hours later, we embraced and we prayed, hugged, and celebrated our reunion," Houck said, noting that this experience took place about 100 yards from Independence Hall in Philadelphia.

Bannon told Houck that the state troopers, FBI agents, are not the good guys under the Biden administration, calling them the "Romans that are persecuting first-century Christians."

"Mark Houck was chained like a dog and brought in... for one simple reason, I want this audience to fully understand it; he's lived Christianity. He doesn't talk about his religion, he doesn't go to church once a week... It's his lived Christianity that brought him to be chained like a dog in that room.

"... This is first-century Rome, they're like the Nazis. There's no difference. For the state troopers and the FBI agents and US marshalls [to say] 'I'm just doing my job,' go back and look at the Nuremberg trials. 'Just doing my job' is not good enough," Bannon said.

He said that he will be back out in front of abortion centers praying the rosary next week.
