'They want you scared': Jan 6 defendant Joe Biggs SLAMS 17 year prison sentence on Infowars

"They want to send a message to Americans that if you go to these events if you are part of a political group, they're going to throw you in prison for a long time."

Katie Daviscourt Seattle WA
Proud Boys leader Joe Biggs bashed the judge's decision to slap him with a 17-year prison sentence for his role in the Jan. 6 riot at the US Capitol. Biggs spoke of the judge's decision, in which the judge said the intent of the long sentence was to be a strong warning to the American people saying. "They want you scared," Biggs told Alex Jones.

Biggs, a Florida military veteran, said that the case against him and others involved in the Jan. 6 riot was politically motivated.


"My heart hurt," Biggs said of his conviction while appearing on the Alex Jones Show.

"They want to send a message to Americans that if you go to these events if you are part of a political group, they're going to throw you in prison for a long time. They want you scared," he told Jones.

"They don't want you to go out and vote, they want people scared before it's time to vote, and that's why all this heat's happening right now," Biggs asserted.

US District Judge Timothy Kelly, a Trump-appointed judge, sentenced Biggs to 17 years in prison on Thursday which was the second longest sentence given to Jan 6 defendants so far, but still 16 years short of the original term sought by prosecutors.

Biggs, who had ripped down a fence on the Capitol grounds that day, was charged with seditious conspiracy, obstruction of an official proceeding, conspiracy to prevent an officer from discharging any duties, obstruction of law enforcement during civil disorder, destruction of government property and aiding and abetting, according to court documents.

Because Biggs the barrier separated law enforcement personnel from the protesters tore on Capitol grounds that day, Judge Kelly ruled that Biggs was subject to heavier sentencing consequences for domestic terrorism.

Biggs maintained that he and other members of the Proud Boys had "no plans" to breach the US Capitol on January 6 despite being charged with seditious conspiracy, which investigators could not formally determine with evidence.

Biggs said that it was "ridiculous" of the judge to determine "that shaking offense was tantamount to terrorism."

"We went there that day with no plan, with nothing," Biggs told Jones. "We were there like every other American, but because we're a political group...They're going to put us in chains."

"There was no intelligence of a plan. Not one of the rats that came forward said that there was a plan. Everyone said that there was zero plan of anything happening that day by us, and yet they got us for conspiracy to plan this. They said we had this meeting of the minds without ever actually saying anything, and it happened on the fly at the first breach," Biggs explained. "So apparently we all had this telekinesis power."

Biggs told Jones that he believes former Republican President Donald Trump will pardon him and other Jan. 6 defendants if Trump finds himself back in the White House.

Other Proud Boy affiliates had also been sentenced by Judge Kelly, ranging from 15 to 33 years in prison, which include Enrique Tarrio, Zachary Rehl, and Ethan Nordean.
