Klete Keller is a gold medalist swimmer in the Olympics. Not once, but twice. He participated in a total of three Olympic games. However, things took a bad turn for him. He got reduced to a penniless person having no aim and neither a roof to sleep under. He was reduced to someone who had to sleep in a car.
Whatever Klete Keller is now, is completely different to even imagine. He has been identified as a rioter of the infamous Capitol riot that ended up killing a total of five people. It was the FBI who identified him. Klete Keller, the former Olympic gold medalist is “Person 1” in the documents of the court. He has been charged with the crimes of the federal court of the United States of America.
Klete Keller As “Person 1”
There has been found video footage of Klete Keller, that got the FBI to identify him. In the video, he can be seen in a bearded look in the Rotunda. The reason that made him stood out amid the gear of the militia was due to his attire and the physical built.
The video shows Klete Keller in a branded jacket which is an official one. the jacket has the patch of United States Olympic on it. The back of the jacket and the sleeve on the right side has “USA” written on them.
The outfit that Klete Keller chose to wear, which included the logo of the Olympic rings, and the stripes and stars, symbolizes a perverted version of patriotism. This kind of patriotism is very prominent among followers of President Donald Trump. They are the ones who hold the view that it is legitimate to overturn the result of an election that has been carried out in the most democratic manner, only to follow the steps of Donald Trump.
