On Jan 12th, 2021 Maryland Republican Politician and Trump supporter, Barry Donadio called for peace, calm and no acts of violence leading up to the January 20th, 2021 inauguration ceremony. But will people listen?
Donadio holds many titles; Military Veteran, President of a company, Politician, Supporter of Police and First Responders, Father and Grandfather. Now, he can add a new title to his resume. The title of being an Advocate For Peace.
Barry Donadio who is also a former member of the U.S. Secret Service is calling for Trump supporters and others to not break any laws during the January 20th 2021 inauguration ceremony or the days leading up to it.
Donadio made these statements on January 12th 2021;
“ I call for peace in the days leading up to the January 20th 2021 inauguration ceremony. There must be no acts of violence perpetrated on our democratic process whether you agree with it or not.” Barry Donadio Jan. 12th, 2021
“It is not lawful or acceptable to assault Police Officers or anyone else for that matter when protesting for a cause.” Barry Donadio Jan. 12th, 2021
“If faced with the temptation to act criminally on January 20th 2021, please reconsider your actions and don’t do it. For every one or your actions, there is a reaction. That reaction could be you contained in a jail cell for the rest of your life after being found guilty in a court of law.” Barry Donadio Jan. 12th, 2021
“If you assault a Police Officer, you are no friend of mine.” Barry Donadio Jan. 12th, 2021
“E pluribus unum. This is the phase that describes the only way to move forward from where we stand now as Americans. “ Barry Donadio Jan 12th, 2021
Donadio made these statements on January 7th 2021 regarding the capitol being breeched;
“I am deeply disappointed in anyone who participated in assaulting Police Officers during today’s protests. It is simply disgusting.” Barry Donadio Jan 7th, 2021
“I look forward to seeing the legal consequence unfold on these criminals when the Justice system catches up with them.” Barry Donadio Jan 7th, 2021
Capitol breached Jan 7th 2021,
Protesters got out of control today when they stormed the Capitol Building and actually were able to breach the building, gaining access. The Capitol Police and other law enforcement officers gallantly stood their ground protecting the Capitol Building, but they appeared to be outnumbered twenty to one. Videos circulated on the internet showing Capitol Police Officers being assaulted both outside and also inside the Capitol Building.
While the Capitol building was being breeched, he released this call for restraint to stop the violence against Police Officers and First Responders at 3:45pm on January 6th 2021.
Although Donadio is a Trump supporter, he will not tolerate assaults on our Police Officers and crimes being committed in the name of a perceived valid cause.
Back on May 30th, Donadio also called on state and federal prosecutors to charge every single person that committed a crime during the wide spread riots bringing attention to the death of George Floyd.
Donadio released a strong statement condemning thugs who have resorted to committing crimes during the recent protests. In addition others who have ceased the oportunity to carry out their criminal deeds.
“If someone dislikes the outcome of an event, it does not give them validity and the right to commit crimes in the name of that cause.” Donadio explained.
“ I support and always will support the people’s constitutional right to protest. However, protests must be lawful. If you are out there committing crimes during a protest, you are only a worthless thug that will end up in a jail cell where you belong.”
“I am representing the unheard and ignored massive majority of Americans of many backgrounds and races that have rational intellect. They are the People of the United States of America. That is, We the People.”
“We the People are disgusted by what we see on television when a U.S. city is burned to the ground by thugs claiming to be protesting in support of a worthy cause. When in fact they (the criminals, not the true protesters) were just looking for any excuse to have an unrestricted field day. They wanted to do as they pleased by committing any criminal act they could without any legal accountability.”
“Therefore, We the People demand justice against those who have commited any crime whatsoever during the protests regarding the death of George Floyd. Prosecute each and every one of them. No matter what legal lengths are necessary to complete the task.”
