Photos show marked difference in how law enforcement responded to anti-racism protests and the supporters of the Trump rally turned unruly mob at the U.S. Capitol.
4 people were killed in this protest, the lies that they were treated softly are just that. BLM rioted for months resulting in 30+ dead (literal political execution in the streets), 900+ officer casualties and hundreds of billions in property damage. If you riot weeks on end violently you’re inevitably going to get harsher treatment
Love how the media commies make it look like these people were dangerous and destructive but the people who committed the violence, looting and destruction weren't.
All violence is bad, everybody condemn the violence from all sides at the BLM protests
Stop your nonsensical whataboutism
What happened yesterday was shameful
The fact this is being called a mob and not a peaceful protest is the only contrast needed. But hey, I didn't see any burning buildings, which may be a requirement for the peaceful label.
They wanted this to happen. The cops basically let them into the capital. Makes good propaganda and all the cuckservatives who were talking about patriots needing to rise are now claiming this was done by antifa.
This is so disengenous, the BLM/antifa riots we're way worse, caused more deaths and property damage, and that is a fact. You can easily find photos and footage of the police literally standing there watching people get assulted and stores get burnt to the ground. I don't agree with any one side, but I can see the double standards clear as day.
It’s almost like the public’s response to the first one dictated how the second one would be reacted too. These articles basically said police responded harshly, we demanded reform and now that they respond in a way we demanded, we dislike it.
People who say this stuff haven't paid attention to any of the facts apperently. The people who stormed the Capitol were hit with tear gas, pepper spray, pepper balls, rubber bullets, and live ammunition. Stop lying to make this a race issue. The reason it took longer for a response was that this raid was a spontaneous, unplanned event that the police at the Capitol (for some reason) weren't prepared for. You would think the Capitol building of the most power in the world would be mor prepared. This just shows the incompetence of the US government. Think what they wouldve accomplish if this was a planned out raid.
This event is symbolic of Trumps presidency. 4 Trump supports died following conspiracy theories. People made lots of noise but nothing is going to change. Police came, boots got licked, they left. Finally, they tore down American flags and replaced them with Trump flags.
How the f&*k did this even happen? Where was the security and law enforcement? When BLM is at the Capitol there are armed National Guard lined up all over the steps of the Lincoln Memorial to protect it but when a right wing mob marches on the Capitol there are essentially rent-a-cops and the members of Police Academy. Seems smart.
The leftist hypocrisy is astounding. We get to Riot for reasons..... but you can't. Get over your communist selves
As far as I'm concerned, BLM and these thugs that stormed the Capitol armed are 2 sides of the same coin. I don't want to hear Jack **** from either side trying to take the moral high ground over the other. The extremists on both sides are a threat to democracy itself.
Let's be frank here. Those who stormed the Capital were not an "unruly mob", they were a DOMESTIC TERRORISTS. They are traitors to this country. They should be arrested, tried, convicted of such. Donny TinyHands needs to also be charged with murder. He like Charlie Manson, manipulated from elsewhere and caused death.
Well for one- the people yesterday were not trying to target police, they were going after making a statement. BLM and antifa actually tried to Target police and police vehicles. Big difference. Good job on the propaganda though 👍 unfortunately it will trick a lot of uninformed people
Not even equivalent. MAGA was largely peaceful and they only targetted the politicians who had betrayed them. The rioting and violence of the Left in June burmed DC and destroyed the livelihoods of innocent people. The Left stormed the Senate during the confirmation hearing for Kavanaugh, and that was ok and brave. The Left tried to storm the SCOTUS after Kavanaugh was confirmed and instead beat on the locked doors and howled like pathetic dogs outside, and that was brave and ok
There was nothing wrong with what MAGA did on the 6th.
Were they throwing moltov cocktails at police and trying to burn officers alive when they were barricaded in their station?
No one cares!
It’s almost like the police *in general* were a lot harsher against people who were calling for them to get pay docks and calling them bastards than the people who used force to break into the capitol and left it a mess. Police are humans too, so they might do their job better if we don’t attack them and their paychecks. On the flip side, those that aren’t doing their damn job and letting the Capitol building get overrun *probably* should be let go.
This was a failed coup. Nothing less.
EDIT: a failed "Political" coup.
This is quite a contrast to the treatment of Wednesday's protesters.
