Tyler Ethridge in the United States Capitol on January 6, 2021. 

This blog did a series on a Christian nationalist pastor who allegedly stormed the United States Capitol and recorded video of the event. The Wondering Eagle got involved in this situation when on January 17, 2021 Pro-Publica an investigate journalist organization which often partners with PBS’s Frontline did a data dump of videos from Parler. They did a scape of a large number of videos. This blogger sat down and started going through the videos. I wanted to see how many evangelicals were involved in the coup attempt. Then after a few minutes I was watching this video. It was of a pastor who spoke of how he would probably lose his job. Amid tear gas he spoke of being in the riot for his child and daughter. This blog did a quick post and was eager to identify this individual. That took place in, “Twitter/Facebook and Social Media. Lets Identify This Pastor Who Trespassed at the United States Capitol During the January 6 Riot.” 

Less than twelve hours later he was identified by another organization and we had a name. Tyler Ethridge, a Christian nationalist pastor form Texas who was at one point a high school football athlete well known in the Lone Star State. This blog found his social media and started looking into his theology and beliefs. First Tyler deleted his Twitter and then locked down another account. But I was able to take screen shots of his Facebook account before he locked that down also. This post is going to compile all the blog posts about Tyler Ethridge so individuals will be able to find and read more about him easier.

In some ways he became more political and used the Bible to attack, “communism” though if pressed I don’t think he could understand communist thought or theory or explain the differences between Soviet style communism or Chinese communism.
