OPINION: This article contains commentary which reflects the author’s opinion
A judge last week issued a controversial decision as he sentenced a man to prison against an Iowa man who was involved in the events at the Capitol on January 6.
Doug Jensen, 42, was sent back to prison for listening to MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell’s cyber symposium on the Internet, CNN reported.
The reason given for his going back to the slammer, a mere seven weeks after he was released, was that he violated the conditions of his release by accessing conspiracy theories.
Those conditions included a prohibition on using the internet — to keep Jensen away from the QAnon conspiracy, which he previously admitted to investigators was the reason he breached the Capitol. But when court officials made their first unannounced visit to check on Jensen at his home last month, they found him in his garage, using a cell phone to stream a right-wing news outlet.
According to court filings, Jensen admitted to the court officials that he also used the phone to stream a conspiracy-filled symposium held by MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, a diehard supporter of former President Donald Trump who has repeatedly pushed debunked claims and haywire theories about foreign countries switching millions of votes to steal the election from Trump.
Jensen was released in July because he said that he had debunked conspiracy theories and disavowed them.
“But it’s now clear that he has not experienced the transformation that his lawyer previously described and that he continues to seek out the conspiracy theories that led to his dangerous conduct on January 6,” District Judge Timothy Kelly said. “I don’t see any reason to believe that he has had the wake-up call that he needs.”
“I think it’s probably a logical inference,” the judge said, “that there are no conditions that will assure Mr. Jensen will not pose a danger to the safety of the community.”
This is my opinion, but it appears to be dangerous to me that someone can be sent behind bars because they think something you do not approve of.
Whether the conspiracy theories a person believes in are true or not, a person should have the right to believe whatever they want. Not to act on it, but to believe it.
“At first glance, it sounds a bit Orwellian. A man sitting in his garage streaming the news over the internet… now the government wants to jail him,” Jensen’s attorney Christopher Davis said.
“Orwellian aside,” he said, “he was wrong, and he’s not denying that.”

Mike says: “When I created my new MySlippers I wanted it to have everything you could need in a slipper. I wanted a slipper that was more comfortable than anything before it but also durable enough to wear all day, indoors and outdoors. That’s why I developed an exclusive 3-tier cushioning system that combines two layers of foam with a patented impact gel to keep you from wanting to ever take them off. But I didn’t stop there, I finished my MySlippers with beautiful leather suede, cozy faux fur linings and an indoor/outdoor sole. I guarantee these will be the most comfortable slippers you’ll ever own!”
