        I think most of us, even though we were also against the summer violence, did not see those actions in the same light as the attack on the Capital. I don't know many people who saw them as the 'same.'
        Could the difference at least be in part with how they were portrayed?

        We didn't have the MSM standing in front of burning buildings in a city where 1500 buildings were destroyed declaring that it was a "mostly peaceful protest"

        You didn't have prominent politicians like Jerry I-pooped-in-my-pants-in-public Nadler insisting that the months long rioting by antifa and similar groups was nothing but a myth


        And on and on.

          Actually it is at a post-doc level............and I doubt junior high kids joke about how to spell CAPITOL in the restroom.

              Left wing activist police too, by the looks of things:

              At least 13 off-duty law enforcement officials are suspected of taking part in the riot, a tally that could grow as investigators continue to pore over footage and records to identify participants. Police leaders are turning in their own to the FBI and taking the striking step of reminding officers in their departments that criminal misconduct could push them off the force and behind bars.

                I love ya, bro, but I'm gonna have to smack you gently about the head and shoulders for this...
                A) We're well aware that there were both police officers, fire fighters, perhaps even Capitol Police, and other extremists who acted violently
                2) The are being turned in by "their own" because of the very fact that MOST of us agree that this is despicable and unacceptable
                C) Why were not the lefties doing this all summer, instead of making excuses for and even aiding and abetting the extremists in their ranks?

                  Sounds like the left was interested in distancing themselves from this guy long before he took part in the Capitol riot. This brings his credentials as a left winger into some doubt.

                      Because if the left closes their eyes, he doesn't exist.

                        If that's the case then the militia's booting Timothy McVeigh out brings his credentials as a radical right winger into doubt.

                        More likely that both were even too extreme for either fringe.

                              This looks like scapegoating to me.

                              Violence is mostly a habit of the right, and the white, against the left, the brown and the black. Do not expect the right wing media to own up or admit that there is anything wrong with the things that are done to keep the white man's boot on the black man's neck. Everybody has noticed the difference between the treatments of BLM protesters versus white insurrectionists.

                              Between late May and the end of the August, Acled and Princeton researchers documented 7,750 demonstrations associated with the Black Lives Matter movement in more than 2,000 different locations across the United States, as well as more than 1,000 protests related to Covid-19. About a third of the Covid-19 protests were linked to schools reopening, the report found, all of them peaceful protests. There were also at least 70 documented protests over Covid-19 involving healthcare workers, and at least 37 demonstrations focused on the eviction crisis.

                              While the overwhelming majority of all the different kinds of protests tracked over this time were peaceful, the report did find a troubling trend of violence from both government forces and non-state actors.

                              Government authorities were more likely to intervene in Black Lives Matter protests than in other demonstrations, and also more likely to intervene with force, like using teargas, rubber bullets and pepper spray or beating demonstrators with batons, the researchers found.

                              They documented 392 incidents this summer in which government authorities used force on Black Lives Matter demonstrators.

                              Journalists covering Black Lives Matter protests were also met with violence from government forces in at least 100 separate incidents across dozens of states this summer. One journalist was blinded after being hit in the eye with a rubber bullet while covering protests over George Floyd’s killing in Minneapolis.

                              Violent intervention from government forces did not make protests more peaceful, the report concluded. In Portland specifically, the report found that intervention from federal authorities in the protest “only aggravated unrest”, with the number of “violent demonstrations” rising from 53% to nearly 62% of all events “after federal agents arrived on the scene”.

                              Armed individuals were documented at at least 50 protests this summer.

                              “Individual perpetrators – sometimes linked to hate groups like the KKK – have launched dozens of car-ramming attacks targeting demonstrations around the country,” the researchers wrote.

                                Of course it does.

                                Nonetheless, the Republicans are actively calling out their own, regardless of your little attempt at changing the subject.

                                For the sarcastically impaired the following is said in jest


                                You're still my favorite pinko commie leftist nutter, ff.
