America’s oldest traditional Catholic newspaper condemns the violent breach of the U.S. Capitol which took place on January 6, 2021.
Michael J. Matt, editor of The Remnant--and host of the popular YouTube program, The Editor’s Desk—has issued a strong statement denouncing this crime as a violation of the laws of God and man.
In his statement, Mr. Matt—who has been a leading voice in the American traditional Catholic movement for thirty years—calls the insurrectionists “thugs posing as patriots”, who only did harm to the reputation of the conservative and pro-life movement in America.
The Remnant is calling upon Christian supporters of President Donald Trump to condemn this scandal without reservation and to call upon law enforcement—local, state and federal—to investigate those responsible and to prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law.
Conservative Catholics stand for law and order and proudly defend America’s officers of law enforcement. We therefore denounce attacks on law and order of any and every kind, whether they come from the Left or the Right.
