Actor Siaka Massaquoi had his home raided by Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agents after he joined patriotic protesters at the January 6 pro-Trump protest for election integrity in Washington, D.C. The black television actor has appeared on shows including S.W.A.T., NCIS: Los Angeles, Ratched, Lethal Weapon, and numerous short films. It took approximately 20 FBI agents to raid his home in North Hollywood early in the morning on Friday, according to reports. There were reportedly two young children aged seven and under in the house during the raid.
“I did nothing wrong on the sixth,” the actor has said on Instagram, noting that he “did nothing violent.”
“Hollywood is probably the most racist place that I’ve ever experienced,” Massaquoi previously told Prager U, in an interview in which he also stated, “There’s so much fear in this industry. And if anyone is on the right, that’s it you’re done. It doesn’t matter if you are black or white. It doesn’t matter if you’re a woman. It doesn’t matter if you are gay.” The actor declared, “I have been removed from this and from a couple of projects and I’ve seen friends removed from projects so people keep their mouths shut.”
The Russian government is publicly monitoring what it calls the “persecution” of political dissidents who went to the Capitol on January 6, as a number of the protesters sit in jail awaiting trial and facing lengthy prison sentences. However, American politicians are turning a blind eye to the treatment of the protesters, including even Republicans like Lindsey Graham who vowed to help jail Trump supporters.
As the incarcerated “Q Shaman” noted in his Sixty Minutes interview, the police allowed protesters to enter the U.S. Capitol on that fateful day.
TRUTH: THE U.S. CAPITOL POLICE let the protestors in. Encouraging them to get inside the building.
