Christian nationalist: Proud Boys on Jan 6 were only there to ‘protect Trump supporters from Antifa’

During a recent livestream, Christian nationalist and pro-Trump conspiracy theorist Lance Wallnau gave his thoughts on what transpired during the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, especially in regards to the faction of Proud Boys who were at the Capitol that day.

According to Wallnau, the Proud Boys were only there to help calm things down.

“In fact, [the Proud Boys] actually deescalated part of the conflict with police, and their orders were to clean up the garbage and get out of the Capitol,” Wallnau said. “In other words, clean up the mess — any debris that’s there, glass paper, garbage cans turned over — let’s clean up and let’s get out.”

Wallnua goes on to claim — without evidence — that the Proud Boys agreed beforehand that their presence that the Capitol would be peaceful.

“They were there to protect Trump supporters from Antifa, and that’s why I’m giving them thumbs up.”
