Capitol rioter suspects claim they are ‘force fed critical race theory’ and ‘anti-white messaging’ in jail

Ryan Nichols of Longview, Texas, and Robert Morss of Pennsylvania, who have been charged with several offenses relating to the Jan. 6 riot, wrote a letter lambasting the conditions of the District of Columbia jail, where they are being held.

They have accused the corrections department of 77 separate “constitutional, human, and civil rights violations,” and describe themselves as “Political Prisoners on American soil who have been unjustly and unfairly incarcerated” and claim that they are “relentlessly burdened by selective prosecution … because of our political affiliation”.

“We are force fed CRT (critical race theory) propaganda on tablets,” as well as “reeducation propaganda” and “anti-white racial messaging,” they wrote. Critical race theory is the study of the relationship between race and laws and its impact on society.

Nichols and Morss went on to suggest that rather than continue to house them in the DC jail, the Justice Department should instead transfer them to the detention facility at the Guantanamo Bay, Cuba naval base where illegal enemy combatants have been detained since the early 2000s.

“Let us spend our precious and limited days in Guantanamo Bay Cuba, where the enemies of the United States of America are treated better than us group of January Sixers, who have merely been accused of crimes,” they wrote.
