FBI Collars Far-Right Troll “Baked Alaska” For Rioting

Buzzfeed News reports:

Far-right internet troll Tim Gionet, better known as Baked Alaska, was arrested Friday for his role in the deadly insurrection at the US Capitol.

Gionet was arrested by the FBI on charges of “knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority” and “violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds,” a criminal complaint obtained by BuzzFeed News shows.

Despite participating in the coup attempt — including shouting anti-Semitic and QAnon dogwhistles, and encouraging others to remain in the building — he at one point identified himself as a member of the media to responding police officers.
