It's a common misconception that Trump's hardcore supporters hail from rural America, with a majority of them being working-class people. A string of them who were arrested for storming Capitol Hill were affluent people, with one even taking a private jet to land at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday. Jenna Ryan, a realtor and radio host, took a private jet along with three others to stop Congress from certifying Joe Biden as the winner of the Presidential election on January 6th. "OK guess who's going to DC by private jet?!?! Meeee," wrote Ryan on Facebook on January 3. The woman from Dallas documented the journey on her Twitter and Facebook account with the posts leading up to the riot carrying the hashtags "#MarchToSaveAmerica" and "#stopthesteal." She posted a picture from the private plane on January 5 and was flying in from US Trinity Aviation in Denton, reported Newsweek.
She posted an image standing next to a broken window at the scene of the riots and wrote, "Window at The capital." Shen then added a warning to the media, "And if the news doesn't stop lying about us we're going to come after their studios next..." She also live-streamed from Capitol grounds but it remains unclear if she ever entered the building.
"All these working-class people taking the week off," said Ryan in her live-stream. "We flew here for freedom. They want to steal the election, they want to steal everything." She described storming the Capitol as "one of the best days of my life." It was the epitome of White privilege that people could get away with storming one of the most secure buildings in the country and boast about it on social media. Many of the protesters were escorted out of Capitol Hill only for the FBI to track many of them down and arrest them later.
She later denied taking part in the violence. “I was just there to let my voice be heard and document the events,” said Ryan in an interview with HousingWire. “I was not part of the violence." She also condemned the violence on Facebook. “I do not condone the violence that occurred on January 6, 2020, and I am truly heartbroken for the people who have lost their lives. Hatred and violence toward each other are not going to solve our country’s issues," wrote Jenna Ryan, who described the insurrection as one of the best days of my life. "As a nation, we need to come together – Republican, Democrat, and Independent – and have an open and honest discussion about the issues in our country and resolve our issues in peace.” She might have missed the fact that only Republicans and conservatives stormed Capitol Hill, along with a couple of neo-nazis and White supremacists, so to appeal for peace from Democrats, and Independents is a little weird.
She has faced severe backlash since and even had one of her realtor advertising signs vandalized in Carrollton, a city just outside of Dallas, reported Newsweek. Her advertising signs were defaced with the words "Trumper," and with expletives. They also blacked out her face. Jenna Ryan wasn't the only one who posted videos of photos of the riots but a majority of the MAGA rioters did as well. These photos and videos and have in large part enabled the FBI to identify and track a majority of the rioters. An Olympic gold-winning swimmer, off-duty-police officers, a CEO, veterans, and a judge's son were among those who were found storming the Capitol. Another person who bragged about storming Capitol Hill was Jenny Cudd from Midland Texas.
She posted a video of herself draped in a Trump flag justifying her actions. "I want to let you know what actually happened today. When Pence betrayed us is when we decided to storm the Capitol ... We didn't vandalize anything but we did, as I say that, break down Nancy Pelosi's office door and somebody stole her gavel and took a picture sitting in the chair flipping off the camera." She has since deleted the video. FBI has now sought help from the public to arrest those who rioted causing the death of 5 people including that of a police officer last Wednesday. At least 82 people have been arrested by federal agencies for their part in the riots, reported KOMO News.
