And when the call came to stand up for our nation, Ronald Colton McAbee stood and said, “Send Me.”
January 6, 2021, was a historic day in our nation. One that will forever be remembered. As the nation’s foundation called, Colt, along with many, heeded the call and went to our nation’s capitol that day to stand up for what’s right. For our rights. For our future. And in August 2021, they came for him. He was apprehended in Nashville, Tennessee. Since then, Colt has been held without bond in the DC Gulag when after a Tennessee Magistrate Judge ordered his release.
From a very young age, Colt knew that he wanted to help people and to make a difference in the world. He chose to pursue a career in law enforcement where he could help those incarcerated turn their lives around. Each day when he came home from work, his four-year-old neighbor would be outside watching. Colt had become a hero to the boy. One day, Colt walked next door to talk with the boy. Colt learned that the boy too wanted to become a police officer. He told the young boy, “You will be a great officer. You can do good in your community by helping others and you will be able to influence people for good.” The young boy tried on Colt's shirt and beamed with pride. This is the Colt McAbee we know.
Colt has always looked to help others. Many awards would follow in his career, including a life-saving award that hangs on his wall. He had saved the life of one of the incarcerated. As many people will tell you who know Colt, “He would give you the shirt off his back. He is so selfless and puts others before himself. He has such a big heart and is passionate about the things he loves.” This is the Colt McAbee we know.
All of these traits were on full display on January 6, especially love for his country. When chaos broke out at the capitol, Colt was helping others around him. He even tried to save the life of a fellow patriot, Roseanne Boyland.
Colt is just like us. A fellow patriot who loves his country and respects others. For anyone who knows Colt, you know a kind, courteous, respectful, young man who is fiercely loyal to those close to him. As one friend put it, “He has grown into a man that I am proud to know. He takes responsibility seriously, is reliable, kind, compassionate, and trustworthy …” When Colt worked in law enforcement, he treated each person as a human being, never judging them, and uplifting and empowering them to become better. This is the Colt McAbee we know.
Another person who knows Colt shared this life changing moment for them of him “… I even watched as Colt pulled money from his own wallet to give to an employee of mine that was in need. He did not want an ounce of recognition … because accolades isn’t what this man needs. He has walked through flame and fire to stand for what we know in our hearts is right.” This is the Colt McAbee we know.
That is what called Colt to DC. “To stand for what we know in our hearts is right.” Standing up for what is right motivated another person to share this about him, “Colt has an outstanding character, ethical and moral compass. He has always been the type of individual to help others in need and holds himself to a higher standard along with those around him …” This is the Colt McAbee we know.
Colton McAbee is just like many. A husband. A son. A brother. A patriot, but he is not just any patriot. He is a J6 patriot. He is a J6 warrior. He is a fellow American who is resolute and steadfast in protecting our freedoms. He is standing in the gap for all of us. Standing in the gap for the constitution. Standing in the gap for future generations of Americans. And it has come with a high cost. Please consider giving to Colt. His prayers are to have all J6 patriots and families protected, for the truth to prevail, and for all of the J6 patriots to return home to their family. Thank you for your generous hearts and thank you from the bottom of ours. We are forever grateful.
