According to Rupert Murdoch’s fake news “tabloid” The NY Post, liberals are suffering from “amnesia” about last summers protests when leftist mobs became violent for no reason, and decided to rampage across the country and “burn down” every major city in America.
What every liberal media pundit has forgotten, according to the Post, is how hypocritical they are – it’s always the libs who are hypocritical, never conservatives – how permissive they were, how complicit they were in the violence that occured during those protests, which they will forever refer to as “riots.”
What set off the editorial staff at the Post was the statement by Joe Biden who questioned how the rioters would have been treated had they been Black Lives Matter protesters.
“No one can tell me that if it had been a group of Black Lives Matter protesters yesterday, that they wouldn’t have been treated very differently than the mob that stormed the Capitol,” he tweeted. “We all know that’s true – and it’s unacceptable.”
The tweet prompted a totally ironic response from the Post, attempting to set him straight, but managing to make themselves look foolish in the the process.
Conservatives are without self-awareness. They are incapable of any self-reflection. They are the ones who are attempting to rewrite last summers protests that liberals were not permissive of. And there is, to an extent, a double standard of racism. Despite the fact that a “safe zone” was set up in Seattle – which doesn’t mean shit – Black Lives Matter were nowhere near coddled. Anyone who saw the footage, or watched the protests as they happened live, as peacefull protesters were beaten, brutalized, maced, tear gassed, and shot at – know that this claim is 100% bullshit.
A part of the actual “amnesia” here, is that AG Bill Barr wanted to prosecute Seattle Mayor, Jenny Durkin for allowing a police-free zone, and he also encouraged federal prosecutors to charge BLM protesters with sedition! Durkin’s response was: “This is an act of tyranny, not democracy. This is not about me. It is about how this president and his AG are willing to subvert the law and use the DOJ for political purposes. It is particularly egregious to try and use civil rights laws to investigate, intimidate, or deter those who are fighting for civil rights in our country.”
But according to conservatives, the authorities walked on eggshells around BLM during the entire protests for fear of upsetting them. There was no deadly force used against the BLM protesters. They were completely “coddled,” and pampered by the police and the government.
So, apparently Donald Trump allowed the Mob to rampage across the country, “burning down entire cities” according to the narrative of so many conservatives. Portland was left in ruins, as was Seattle, according to concervatives.
The real deadly force was used against the “real patriots” who stormed the Capitol. Yeah, we saw the deadly force that was used against these guys, alright. The deadly force that was used against the rioters by opening barricades and doors, allowing them to enter. The “deadly force” that was employed against rioters as they were allowed to roam the halls of Congress and the Capitol. The “deadly force” that was used against those rioters that were taking selfies with police officers. The “deadly force” that was used against the rioters who invaded the senate, and made themselves at home. The “deadly force” that was used against the rioters who beat cops, killing one of them in the process.
Deadly force, my ass! Give me a fucking break. Anyone who claims that BLM protesters were “coddled” and the Capitol hill rioters were not, are lying for their own purposes, and anyone dumb enough to buy it, are total morons.
Joe Biden was 100% right here. If these people had been BLM protesters, anti-fascist blue and pink-haired college leftists, they would have definitely been met with “deadly force,” and the police would not have been “vastly outnumbered.”
The only “amnesia,” and media flip-flopping on whether protests “should be frowned upon according to one’s agenda,” going on here, is coming from conservatives. They can stick their “coddled” BS.
