Steve Baker Was Shackled and Charged for What He Said


Steve Baker, a Blaze author and journalist, was arrested on misdemeanor charges for his actions – journalism – on January 6. His crime was how he reported on January 6. As Mr. Baker says in the clip, they nailed him for “scary” words they didn’t like. That has been true of all or most of the J6 defendants. The Left hates free speech for anyone who disagrees with them.

“If you don’t say the right thing at the right time and comport to the right narrative, that’s what they’re going to do – they are going to come after us. That’s exactly what’s happened.

“It’s not, uh, these charges have nothing to do with my behavior at the Capitol. These charges are reflective of what I said before and after my speech, what I thought about things that I joked about. That’s what is reflective of…”
