Capitol Chaos Illustrates Stark Hypocrisy

We’re living in a time of egregious double standards where Democrats and complicit media hold Republicans to a different code of conduct than themselves. An asymmetrical playing field that continues to divide the nation and perpetuate ever-growing anger and resentment amongst President Donald Trump’s 74 million supporters.

Take election integrity. Democrats get a free pass to sow distrust in our elections to serve their political ambitions no matter how divisive and destabilizing to our country. If you recall, over the past four years Hillary Clinton claimed the election was stolen from her while fellow Democrats refused to accept the results of the 2016 election. In September 2019, The Washington Post reported, “Hillary Clinton dismissed Trump as an ‘illegitimate president’ and suggested that ‘he knows’ that he stole the 2016 presidential election.”

But Trump’s not allowed to question the results of the 2020 election even if he believes voter fraud took place.

Who made those rules?

It’s well-known that Clinton and her comrades peddled the sinister “Russia collusion” myth —a manufactured conspiracy theory — against Donald Trump, which the media gleefully trumpeted. A bogus dossier paid for by the 2016 Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee was used by the FBI as a pretext to open criminal investigations against Trump and his associates, who were targeted, spied on and harassed. Lives were ruined. Yet, despite a 22-month Special Counsel Probe that found insufficient evidence of conspiracy, the Russia collusion lie persisted to delegitimize the result of the 2016 election and sabotage the Trump administration.

This is a far cry from respecting our nation’s most sacred institution — free elections — and respecting the will of the people.

The left waged an all-out #Resist movement against Trump that lasted for the duration of his presidency. His supporters — ironically, many who are Black, Latino, Asian and Muslim — were called “racist” and every other despicable name in the book. And, for an encore, Democrats impeached Trump over a phone call.

Hardly the peaceful transfer of power the left and media are now demanding from their GOP counterparts. Yet, conservatives have not forgotten Rep. Maxine Waters calling for Trump’s Impeachment — before he was even inaugurated — nor the nearly 70 Democratic lawmakers that boycotted his inauguration, a boycott that swelled after late civil rights icon John Lewis, D-Ga., also said he didn’t consider Trump a legitimate president.

Nonsense. But in the wake of the riots that took place at the Capitol Building on Wednesday, the left and its media sycophants are haughtily lecturing conservatives about the importance of respecting the peaceful transition of power.

Naturally, they wipe from memory all the violence and destruction that antifa and left-wing protestors waged for months burning cities across America following the George Floyd tragedy.

Consider Trump’s inauguration in January 2017.

“Six police officers were injured and 217 protesters arrested Friday after a morning of peaceful protests and coordinated disruptions of Donald Trump’s inauguration ceremony gave way to ugly street clashes in downtown Washington,” CNN reported at the time. “At least two DC police officers and one other person were taken to the hospital after run-ins with protesters. … Bursts of chaos erupted on 12th and K streets as black-clad ‘antifascist’ protesters smashed storefronts and bus stops, hammered out the windows of a limousine and eventually launched rocks at a phalanx of police lined up in an eastbound crosswalk.”

CNN added, “Anti-Trump protests also broke out Friday in US cities, including New York, Seattle, Dallas, Chicago and Portland, Oregon. Authorities in Seattle say one person was in critical condition at a hospital with a gunshot wound.”

None of that excuses the riots at the Capitol building this week by Trump supporters, some who engaged in unruly protest, violence and destruction. These reprehensible acts deserve condemnation and accountability. But make no mistake. Those that broke the law do not represent the 74 million hardworking, law-abiding, patriotic Americans who stayed home that day. Nor do they represent many who honorably serve in the U.S. military.

Democrats and the malicious media must stop trying to paint all conservatives negatively for the actions of a few. After all, how would they like it they were also smeared for far-left extremist groups’ criminal acts?

Bottom line: If our country is to truly heal and unify, then Democrats should practice what they preach and reacquaint themselves with the Golden Rule: Treat others as you want to be treated.

Has anyone truly investigated what groups were involved at he whitehouse? AND will the news media truly cover that without leaning to the left? The news media truly is biased since the 8/4/87 decision to abolish the Fairness Doctrine requiring the presentation of news/issues in a balanced manner.

If the Russia interference was deemed a hoax, shouldn’t the President’s impeachment from Congress be revoked?? Where does one turn to for justice in these times?

Hillary needs to answer too for her crimes . I’m praying for my president , First Lady and their family. They have undergone so much hatred from the left, dems , social media, elite Hollywood and networks .

Has anyone ever stop to think that the people that attacked the capitol building were NOT TRUMP SUPPORTER”S at all, but were people from antifa and other groups that routed, looted and burned other cities in 2020.

I believe that the Democrat’s are the one’s that sent these people to Capitol Hill in a coordinated attack. They were told to dress like Trump supporters and to blend in with the Trump supporter’s and they were told to do as much damage as they could.

Yes that is the truth if ever it was spoken. Talk about them saying Trump incited the riot well the democrats hired the antifa to attack the capital and tried to make it look like Trump supporters. Those evil no counts are pretty slay

A friend of mine said they were told to peacefully protest and it was a very good unifying speech. However, when they got to the capital some weird people were yelling USA, USA, USA and started breaking windows, etc. She said it was like they were trying to incite a riot.
She can’t understand why she and others are getting blamed and persecuted by the media, democrats, big tech, airlines, and even Republicans when 99.9% were appalled that a few dummies would do this. She said it was like the riots you saw on TV this summer. You know the mostly peaceful protests.

Hillary Clinton paid for lies about President Trump. Why wasn’t she arrested for treason? Obama took taxpayers money and gave to terrorists. Why isn’t he arrested. But blm and antifa can burn cities and kill people but the FBI can’t find them. But a Trump supporter they can find in on Facebook. I can do that. Chaos was a set with help from DC mayor and the police. Bussed in antifa. Right on video. Republicans are lazy traitors. China joe will destroy America. His liberal nutcase slaves have been doing for months. Plantation has so many slaves. Top companies, baseball, basketball, football ,big Tec. Wecome to nazi Germany return.

In Japan, they are marching for Trump. They love Trump! They think corrupt Nancy is a joke. They are posting jokes about her. They can’t understand why she is pushing so hard to remove Trump when his first term is almost up. One reason, her lap top. They also think Michelle Obama is a joke. They think she pushed to get rid of Parler to take down Lin Wood. They are poking fun that they will both end up in Guantanamo for their lies and actions.
