From the 3-months-long “Summer of Love” terror spree, finally, there’s justice to it!
A Galesburg, Illinois man by the name Matthew Lee Rupert, 29, has been sentenced to 105 months to prison followed by three years of supervised release after being charged with arson in Minneapolis during the George Floyd protests in the summer of 2020 from the release from the District of Minnesota’s U.S. Attorney’s Office and for any BLM/Antifa rioter, this is the harshest sentence yet.

According to the Star Tribune:
An Illinois man was sentenced to nearly nine years in prison for setting fire to a cellphone store during the civil unrest in Minneapolis following George Floyd’s murder.
Matthew Lee Rupert, 29, of Galesburg pleaded guilty to one count of arson in April.
On Tuesday he was sentenced in Minnesota U.S. District Court to 105 months in prison followed by three years of supervised release for burning down a Sprint store, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
Rupert drove more than 400 miles to Minnesota to “engage in violence and destruction,” Acting U.S. Attorney Anders Folk said in the release.
“Peaceful protest was not on his agenda.”
Last summer, Rupert was the first to be charged in the riots. He originally was charged with counts of civil disorder and riot as well, but the U.S. Attorney’s Office dropped all but the arson charge as part of a plea agreement.
Rupert live-streamed his riot trip to Minneapolis last summer, which included footage of him burning down the Sprint store.
He admitted to flying to Minneapolis on May 28 after hearing about disturbances breaking out at a previous plea hearing. He invited “goons” to join him on Facebook in a message.
It’s about darn time one of these domestic terrorists gets what coming to him.
Americans were forced to sit and watch the country burn for 3 months, while Dem politicians bailed out rioters and ignored all the damage and violence, and deaths.
Now, those same politicians want you to be “outraged” over a 3-hour event at the Capitol, where the only person killed, was an unarmed Trump supporter, and the worst thing that happened to any of these politicians was a stolen podium.
Talk about an out-of-touch ruling class, right?
