Another MAGA down. This one will spend the next 17 years in prison for attempting to overthrow the government back on January 6th, 2021, but prosecutors had actually asked for a sentence of nearly twice that amount. Via NBC:

Joe Biggs, a Proud Boys leader convicted of seditious conspiracy who the government says “served as an instigator and leader” during the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, was sentenced to 17 years in federal prison on Thursday.

It is among the longest sentences in Capitol riot cases.

The government sought 33 years for Biggs, an Army veteran who sustained a head injury in Iraq and then served as a correspondent for the conspiracy website Infowars. Prosecutors argued that he was a “vocal leader and influential proponent of the group’s shift toward political violence” and used his “outsized public profile” and his military experience as he “led a revolt against the government in an effort to stop the peaceful transfer of power.”


Bigger picture, it’s just so funny that hundreds of white trash brain dead morons are headed to prison all because of their deranged fandom for a bankrupt reality TV star who could give two shits about them. Next in line, of course, will be gay porn star “Sergeant” Steven Miles, who’s plea agreement hearing for his role in the Capitol riot is set for September 29th.
