The excessive use of force against January 6 victims has reached levels that are so absurd that they’re now in the realm of North Korea-esque treatment. It’s clear that the regime is trying to send a message to anybody who dares to dissent: if they step out of line, meaning they don’t bow down to the regime agenda, the full force of the United States government will come crashing down on them and their families. It’s a KGB-like tactic that is very powerful and rather off-putting to Americans who still appreciate and love freedom.
This blatant abuse of power was on full display recently, when 20 FBI agents, dressed in tactical “SWAT” gear, conducted a raid on the home of a peaceful January 6th participant who had simply walked through an open door at the Capitol. The man was charged with a misdemeanor, so why did the federal government deploy such overwhelming force against this poor soul?
According to the authorities, they justified this approach based on the “associations” this peaceful man had online.
In other words, he likes people who think the “wrong way.”
The FBI this week raided the home of a Los Angeles-based actor who was among a group of right-wing protesters who entered the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, authorities said.
About 20 agents armed and outfitted in tactical gear raided the North Hollywood home of Siaka shortly before 6 a.m. Thursday, according to a source familiar with the investigation.
Public records list Brian Burks, 42, at the same address. Burks did not return a call for comment, but his ex-wife, Luvelle Mendoza, confirmed Burks was briefly detained by federal authorities.
Mendoza said their two sons, ages 3 and 7, were at Burks’ home when it was raided.
“My heart breaks,” Mendoza said Saturday. “They had to see the big guns and I just think, I wasn’t there to console them.”
The raid took place because of the two men’s associations on “a social media app,” according to the law enforcement source. No further details of the raid were provided and it was unclear whether Massaquoi was arrested and released.
Massaquoi did not return calls from The Times for comment.
Mendoza said Burks called her about 6 a.m. the day of the raid to say he needed to drop the kids off.
“I knew that something bad had to happen for him to just abruptly call me,” she said. “I support him in doing what he believes in. I don’t agree with everything … I just don’t want my kids to be in the crossfire.”
In an Instagram video posted on his account at chiefamericano after the raid, Massaquoi said: “I did nothing wrong on the 6th … did nothing violent.” Videos posted on social media from Jan. 6 showed him inside the Capitol building.
Massaquoi is actually an actor known for playing bit parts on various shows. In addition, he has worked for the Babylon Bee and the Daily Wire. So it makes you wonder: who exactly are these so-called “DANGEROUS” associations of his?
Massaquoi also recorded himself at an anti-vaccine protest and played a prominent role in the movement to recall Gavin Newsom. So, it’s pretty obvious why he’s considered public enemy #1 and why the regime is intent on destroying him and making an example of him to deter others from dissenting against the regime.
As disconcerting as this situation may be, it should serve as an inspiration for everyone to dissent even more. After all, that’s exactly what this country was built upon—challenging the establishment’s narrative and rebelling against a crooked system. The current issue is that when you swim against the tide, you’re frequently treated as though you were a domestic terrorist, triggering a ‘SWAT’ team response. That’s a truly frightening situation to confront. However, what’s even more alarming is living under constant tyranny from a government that should fear the people, not the other way around.
