Texas Teen, Jackson Reffitt, Rats Out His Own Father After Capitol Riot To FBI, Liberals Reward Him

Jackson Reffitt, a Texas teenager ratted out his own father to the FBI for taking part in the Capitol Hill riot and, of course, was rewarded with tens of thousands of dollars from liberal admirers in the process.

When Jackson Reffitt’s father returned to the family home in Wylie, Texas, after the pro-Trump riot on Capitol Hill earlier this month, Jackson claimed that he warned his son to keep his mouth shut. “If you turn me in, you’re a traitor,” he reportedly said. “And you know what happens to traitors. Traitors get shot.”

However, Jackson had already reported the 48-year-old Guy Reffitt to the FBI, telling agents he thought his father was planning “something big” during the certification of election results at the capitol, per a New York Times article on Sunday.

After the riot, Reffitt was identified in video footage from the Capitol, tracked down in Texas, and arrested, according to a sworn affidavit by an FBI agent.

Guy Reffitt was charged with obstruction of justice and of knowingly entering a restricted building, though he claims he never actually entered the Capitol.

Jackson Reffitt becomes the latest Democrat darling

Turning in his father landed Jackson Reffitt left home, after landing interviews with CNN, Fox, and the New York Times, with the CNN interview being the first time his family heard about his ratting out his father to the FBI.

“My mom and my sisters are absolutely ruined about the news from what I did,” Reffitt tweeted on Saturday. Apparently encouraged by his supporters, Reffitt set up a crowdfunding campaign, and after raising the donation limit several times has netted just under $87,000 in less than three days.

This amount has paid for his university tuition, repaired his car, and purchased his dental insurance, Reffitt wrote on GoFundMe. Praise has poured in from liberals, who applauded Reffitt’s “bravery” in snitching on his own father.
