John Guandolo, a disgraced former FBI agent, right-wing conspiracy theorist, and anti-Islam activist, doubled down on his defense of right-wing activists who stormed the U.S. Capitol last week in an effort to prevent Congress from certifying the election for President-elect Joe Biden. Guandolo is a radical right-wing activist who leads an organization called Understanding The Threat, through which he trains law enforcement agencies around the country to identify seemingly anyone with dark skin and a beard as an Islamic terrorist. Last Thursday, he praised the MAGA activists and members of militia organizations and far-right hate groups who carried out the insurrection for supposedly showing incredible “restraint” by not rounding up members of Congress and summarily executing them. On Friday, Guandolo appeared on the “America, Can We Talk?” YouTube program where he again defended the insurrectionists and declared that members of Congress are traitors and “enemies of the republic” who should be “swinging from a rope.”
