Capitol Insurrection WTF?!

QAnon Shaman Now Claims He Was Merely Trying To ‘Calm The Crowd’ On January 6

You remember Jacob Chansley, don’t you? He’s the clown who dressed in full garb the day he helped storm the Capitol a year ago today. Images of him began to circulate on social media and he became known as the QAnon Shaman.

Now, however, Chansley wants us to believe that he was trying to help on January 6 and made every effort to “calm the crowd,” according to Inside Edition:

“In retrospect, one thing I can say that I regret is not working to ensure that there was far more peace on that day. Had I known what was going to happen, I would have stepped in before any barricades were breached. I actually tried to, on more than one occasion, calm the crowd. But it just didn’t work.”

Chansley also said that he regrets not doing more to keep the peace as supporters of former President Donald Trump attacked the U.S. Capitol in an attempt to block the certification of the 2020 election results. However, multiple videos and images showed him howling and chanting his way through the Capitol and inside the Senate Chamber.

Prosecutors said he yelled, “Times up, motherfuckers,” and left a note on then-Vice President Mike Pence’s desk that said, “It’s only a matter of time. Justice is coming.”

Chansley is currently serving a 41-month sentence in federal prison for part in the Capitol insurrection, even though his mother argues that her son did nothing wrong because he was invited to the Capitol by failed, one-term former President Donald Trump.
