The radical loony leftists who keep Twitter’s doors open are going to get their day in court so to speak as the first Trump-supporting, Qanon, white supremacist “insurrectionist” has been convicted and sentenced.
Unfortunately for them, the big bombshell moment turned out to be a real nothingburger so they need to put away the champagne and get back to lying about Trump supporters on social media.
So what happened?
On Wednesday, an Indiana grandmother of five pleaded guilty to one misdemeanor charge of “parading in a Capitol building.” Grandmama became the first of over 400 people charged and waiting to be sentenced in connection with the Capitol riot.
Anna Morgan-Lloyd, 49, of Bloomfield, Indiana, plead guilty on Wednesday during a virtual hearing before US District Judge Royce C. Lamberth. For the plea deal, the DOJ agreed to recommend 3 years probation, along with 40 hours of community service, and a fine of $500.
I can hear leftist skulls exploding. “PROBATION?!?!?! FOR AN INSURRECTIONIST! ”
In an affidavit filed with a federal court back in February, an employee identified Grandma at the Greene County (Indiana) Sheriff’s Office as a person who posted about being at the Capitol on January 6 when she applied for firearms permit. The sheriff’s department then reviewed her Facebook and found numerous posts by her and a friend, Dona Sue Bissey, appearing to show them inside the US Capitol building on January 6.
The FBI said that in one of her posts, Morgan-Lloyd wrote it was the “best day ever.”
“We stormed the capital [sic] building me and Dona Bissey were in the first 50 people in,” Morgan-Lloyd allegedly posted.
Dona Bissey was arrested in Indiana back in February, and Morgan-Lloyd was arrested in Florida back in March. Both were charged with four counts, including entering and remaining in a restricted building, disorderly conduct, and parading, demonstrating, or picketing in a Capitol building.
Meanwhile, don’t forget that leftist rioters tried to break through the gates at the White House to attack then-President Donald Trump and his family during the 2020 summer of riots where over 50 Secret Service agents were injured and not a single person was arrested. In fact, no one ever even searched for them.
Though Morgan-Lloyd is the first person to be sentenced, she’s not the first one to plead guilty to similar charges. That would be John Schaffer, also from Indiana. She’s just the first to be sentenced.
The DOJ added to the sentencing memo that since she did not have a criminal history, they believe the two days she spent in jail should act as an “eye-opening and serve as a deterrent to future criminal conduct.” They also noted that the grandmother “expressed contrition for her conduct.”
“In a letter to the Court, the Defendant state that she was ‘ashamed that something meant to show support for the President had turned violent,’” the DOJ wrote. “’At first it didn’t dawn on me, but later I realized that if every person like me, who wasn’t violent, was removed from that crowd, the ones who were violent may have lost the nerve to do what they did. For that, I am sorry and take responsibility. It was never my intent to help empower people to act violently.’”
Sentencing was initially scheduled for Friday and had to be moved because of Juneteenth being declared as a new federal holiday.
Morgan-Lloyd appeared before US District Court Judge Royce C. Lamberth where she voiced her regrets for participating in a protest she had no idea could turn deadly. Think about it. Despite the constant lying by Democrats and their buddies in the mainstream news media, Trump supporters are not normally the violent ones when protesting. That would be ANTIFA, Black Lives Matter, and any other left-wing Democrat-supporting rag-tag mob out protesting.
“I would have never been there if I had a clue that it was going to turn out that way,” she said. “That was so disgraceful to the American people, and so disgraceful to this country.”
Morgan-Lloyd attorney, H. Heather Shaner, said that since her arrest, her client has expressed an eagerness to learn more about US history and ultimately “revisited” her ideas on government policy towards different racial and ethnic groups after reading books like Bryan Stevenson’s “Just Mercy” and Dee Brown’s “Burn My Heart at Wounded Knee.”
“She recognizes that January 6 may have been a euphoric date for her, but it has been a trauma for many in our country,” Shaner said.
At one point, Shaner downplayed Morgan-Lloyd’s involvement, saying her client was “among the least culpable of the individuals who went from listening to the ex-President’s speech to walking down to the Capitol at his admonition.”

Lamberth said he’d struggled with Morgan-Lloyd’s sentence but finally decided to go along with the DOJ’s recommendation of 3 years of probation.
“Some of my defendants in my other cases think there’s no consequence to this. There is a consequence. And it bothers me,” Lamberth said. “I don’t want to create the perception here that probation is the automatic sentence, because it’s not going to be. I’m especially troubled by members of Congress who said that day was just another walk through the Capitol. I don’t know what planet they were on, but there were millions of people who watched coverage of January 6 and saw what you saw, which was a disgrace to our country.”
Wow. Sounds like this judge isn’t taking any guff and is serious about achieving justice. I wonder if he will be presiding over the thousands of rioters who over the summer of 2020 in Democrat-run cities across the country burned down businesses, looted stores, attacked innocent people, murdered 28 Americans, set police stations and a federal building on fire, attacked the White House, toppled public statues, attacked members of Congress as they were leaving a Trump rally in Washington, DC? Oh, wait. That’s right. The government couldn’t care less about those rioters.
