See Shane’s letter to us here:
Dear Gateway Pundit Readers,
Matthew 25:36-40, “I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to see me. Then the righteous will answer him saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.'”
This is a beautiful reminder of who we are to be as believers. I love that after Jesus explains what they did—clothed him, visited him, and fed him —he says, “The righteous will answer him.” They basically say, ‘Whoa, I don’t think we ever did those things Jesus! You were never naked, sick, or in prison! We cannot take credit for that.’ And then Jesus gently explains, ‘No not me silly. If you did it to anyone, even the least of those people you did it to me.’
That is why I am writing you today. I have to let Jim Hoft, Cara Castronuova, Kelly Wilde, and all the Gateway Pundit readers know from the bottom of my heart and from the hearts of my fellow Jan 6ers how much we appreciate the love you sent us. The prayers, cards, hymns, stories, and my favorite the art from the little ones absolutely makes us feel loved. The handmade cards, the quotes, the Bible tracts, and all the support are so very humbling.
As hard as all of this has been— and it has been quite a challenge— there have been some highs that I have never experienced, and your love and support is at the top of the list. I don’t have a solid count but it is easily in the thousands of cards and letters we have received. This is one of those moments in Matthew when you came to see me in prison. What a blessing! How wonderful it is when we get to see the American people become the hands of Jesus Christ and reach out to embrace us in God’s love. I pray that the blessings you have given us would be multiplied in your lives.
I think it must be noted the amount of power and agency the readers of the Gateway Pundit have. I know this is a tool “we the people” must have and wield. I watch Warroom with Steve Bannon every day and he has his audience engaged and mobilized in prayer, text, email, and phone calls. Not to mention how he encourages his audience to get involved in local politics. We have to recognize that we have power. We are empowered by God. This is our nation. We need to stop thinking we cannot make a difference or continue being passive Christians. We must not flinch in calling out evil and unrighteousness.
I have a mission for Mr. Hoft and the readers of Gateway Pundit today. As everyone knows we lost one of our Jan 6ers. Matthew Perna tragically took his own life. Will everyone please stop reading and bow your head and say a prayer for Matthew, for his family, and loved ones. Hopefully, there is someone running a fundraiser for his family. Look it up and see what we can do for them. Say a prayer for everyone feeling the United States government trying to crush them. This is not easy. I was talking to one of the Jan 6ers here in the DC Gulag with me and he told me, “If I get 10 years I’m gonna end it.“ Men are being destroyed in here and out there. They have lost everything imaginable. Any prayer, encouragement, or love you send is affecting the mental health, hearts, minds, and spirits of these people. You are making an impact. Please feel free to continue sending letters and cards.
We want to thank Jim Hoft for allowing us the chance to utilize his platform to reach out to the world. Thanks to Mr. Hoft and you, the readers, I was able to take care of my children’s Christmas and to maintain my affairs. We cannot thank you enough for your love, your time, and your support. I want to thank our editors Cara Castronuova, Kelly Wilde, and Jon Mellis for turning our messes into something worth reading.
March 5th is one year that I have been in the custody of our federal government. I won’t say it’s been an easy year. I will say I am so very encouraged by the love God has shown me in this time. The family he has placed around me here in the DC DOC. My extended family, you the readers.
I am mindful that millions of people are going to read this and I want to convey to you that you must stand up as responsible citizens of this beautiful country and pick a fight. If its backing the Jan 6ers, then certainly do that; if it’s fighting against CRT in schools or running for a School Board seat; if it’s the crisis at our southern border; if it’s supporting our amazing truckers; if it’s calling/emailing/texting your elected officials PR writing them; if it’s using your money to support one of these causes or volunteering your time there is no time like the present. It is time for “action, action, action,” as Steve Bannon says. It is our duty as citizens to be active and engage in this beautiful experiment that is the United States of America. Pick a battle so we can win this war. We thank you so very much for your love and support. May God give you peace that only His son Jesus Christ can give.
