A Maryland man who turned himself in with authorities earlier this week after allegedly assaulting law enforcement officers at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 said he was not there in support of former President Donald Trump. Jackson continued to explain he joined the protests to fight for America because the nation has been “taken over by globalists,” adding that he is “not here for Trump.”
In a video shared on Twitter by writer, producer Alice Liu, 19-year-old Emanuel Jackson was seen talking during an interview on the day of the assault, explaining how the incident turned violent and also why he decided to join the protest.
“I had a bat. They were pepper spraying people. Then, they got me in the eye,” he told an unidentified reporter in the clip.
“Fighting for America,” the man is heard saying after he was asked what he is doing in Washington. “We’ve been taken over by globalists, by the Chinese. Fighting for America. I’m not here for Trump. I’m here for America,” he continued.
Jackson also said he decided not to vote in the 2020 election because he thought his vote wouldn’t count, adding that he “learned a lesson” and will vote in the future.
“I thought my vote didn’t count, but I learned a lesson, and I will vote next in the midterms and in other elections,” he said.
Jackson was seen in surveillance video from outside the Capitol “repeatedly striking a group of both U.S. Capitol and Metropolitan Police Department uniformed officers with a metal baseball bat,” FBI agent Riley Palmertree wrote in a court filing obtained by The Epoch Times.
Photographs and video footage appeared to show the man holding and swinging the bat while wearing a blue surgical mask that partially covered his mouth but left his nose visible.
He surrendered to Washington police officers voluntarily on Monday, waived his constitutional rights, and admitted to taking part in the violent protest, the filing said. He identified himself in the video and photographs and confessed to assaulting officers.
Jackson was charged with assaulting an officer, assaulting an officer with a deadly or dangerous weapon, obstruction, unlawful entry and physical violence on restricted building or grounds, and violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds.
He faces decades in prison if convicted.
Dozens of people have been arrested for participating in the unrest on Jan. 6, when protesters stormed the Capitol to interrupt a joint session of Congress. The storming has been widely condemned by lawmakers on both sides of the aisle.

ANTIFA prefers fighting the global elite ALONE, not together with Trump! Wouldn't it be better to join forces first to fight a common enemy, and later sort out their differences otherwise?
The bottom line is for the people to regain their original, moral principles, which have intentionally been watered out over the past generations by our press, TV, and other media owned by the Illuminati/Bilderberger Group, corrupting our morals by making misbehaviour acceptable to our society. Only in this way shall we conquer this oncoming wave of evil.
