On January 6, 2021, Jim Hoft of Steve Bannon’s War Room: Pandemic analyzed footage of Ray Epps, an active participant in the Capitol riot, and his involvement in the insurrection. Hoft, a right-wing political commentator, used the footage to draw his own conclusions about the incident.
The footage in question was taken from a video shared by Epps himself on social media. In the video, Epps can be seen entering the Capitol building with other rioters. He then proceeds to take photos and videos of himself inside the building. Hoft noted that Epps seemed to be enjoying himself, laughing and smiling as he documented his participation in the insurrection.
Hoft also pointed out that Epps had posted a message on social media prior to the riot, in which he said that he was “ready to do whatever it takes.” Hoft suggested that this was evidence of Epps’ intent to participate in the insurrection.
Hoft concluded that Ray Epps was an active participant in the Capitol riot, and that his presence in the building was a clear indication of his involvement. He also noted that Epps’ social media post was evidence of his intent to participate in the insurrection.
Hoft’s analysis of the footage of Ray Epps’ involvement in the Capitol riot serves as an important reminder of the consequences of participating in such an event. It is a reminder that those who choose to engage in such activities can be held accountable for their actions. Furthermore, it serves as a warning to others who may be considering participating in future riots or other similar events.
