Thune opponent Mowry part of Jan 6 election protest in Washington DC

I mentioned it earlier, but Mark Mowry’s participation in the Jan 6 election protests in Washington DC have caught the attention of the mainstream media today:

Spearfish resident and long-time musician Mark Mowry earlier this year filed his candidacy to unseat Sen. John Thune in the 2022 Republican primary election, fueled by the senior senator’s unwillingness to question the validity of the presidential election.

Mowry told the Argus Leader in a recent interview that he participated in demonstrations near Capitol Hill the day Congress was set to confirm the results of the Nov. 3 election, three months before deciding to challenge South Dakota’s three-term senator. But he was not part of the riots that broke out and led to protesters storming the Capitol, he said.

Read the entire story here.

No word on whether Mowry’s hat also participated in the protest.

    1. Anybody that would say that is as as much a fascist traitor as those that were there…. How about telling me what YOU would be saying if those traitors were a “libbie” fascist mob?

  1. I do not understand why you mock a guy for protesting. Our country was built on protest. BTW, while not condoning the violence that happened afterward, it would be nice if our Congressional delegation would speak out about the horrid conditions the political prisoners are being held in if reports can be believed. The best I can get from one of our feckless reps is “he is monitoring it”. Way to stay safe.

    1. *the horrid conditions the political prisoners are being held in*

      groan. They aren’t political protestors. The idiots stormed the US Capitol, broke the law, and there were some threatened the lives of officeholders, or at the very least put them in danger by their actions.

      1. How many have been charged with the actions you have accused them of. Many of them did little more than walk through the capitol. Again, nobody is condoning the violence that happened, but your groan tells my you either are uninformed or do not believe the stories that have been published. Nobody was in real danger except for an unarmed lady who was killed by a capitol police officer. Here is just one story: https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/dc-politics/dc-jail-gop/2021/07/29/8362d17e-f096-11eb-bf80-e3877d9c5f06_story.html
        I am not saying all I have read is true, but what I have read does at least deserve some investigation. In many cases, if relatives can be believed, they are being held in solitary confinement, beaten, one case in particular is Ryan Samsen. If many of these people are not political prisoners, what would you call people being held without bail or charges?

        1. Anybody that would say that is as as much a fascist traitor as those that were there…. How about telling me what YOU would be saying if those traitors were a “libbie” fascist mob?

        2. You are a disgrace to this country…. More than 400,000 Americans died fighting to protect this country from people like you and the fascist traitors you defend with lies…

    2. YOU tell me what you would be calling a mob of “libbies” that tried to overthrow DEmocracy and install their unelected tyrant, ..

      THat guy claims he only watched, you support a guy that supported fascist treason.. What does that make you?

      ” if reports can be believed.”– Hell, you people will believe anything you hear if it ios what you want to hear…
