The liberal media and Hollywood left are telling you the Capitol riots had been “atrocities,” an “armed revolt” and “violent sedition towards our authorities” and making an attempt to hyperlink all Trump supporters to them. However final summer time they had been praising, defending, and donating to the Black Lives Matter motion which led to extra violence towards harmless Individuals and the nation than Capitol rioters may ever dream of doing.

That’s wealthy. The left’s fundamental protection for BLM final 12 months was that individuals in peaceable marches had been distinct from looters, murderers and rioters. However now Trump voters are accountable for the actions of a wicked few? Solely final 12 months was Eichner praising hundreds of individuals at BLM rallies. If her had been constant, he’d say “A number of these folks suppose they will separate themselves – their rally attendance from what occurred in Kenosha, (or Minneapolis?)” Absolutely if Trump voters had been blamed for the riots, then even the peaceable BLM marchers would have extra pores and skin within the riot recreation if the roles had been reversed.
