President-elect Joe Biden stated that the supporters of President Donald Trump who were involved in the attack on the Capitol on Wednesday were a “riotous mob” and “domestic terrorists.”
Which, you know, would’ve been a different story had this whole thing been part of a Black Lives Matter protest. Just sayin’.
Then Biden went on to charge Trump with “inciting a mob to attack the Capitol,” which he claims is the result of four years of “unrelenting attack” by the president on the “institutions of democracy.”
It’s shocking that Biden was able to complete an entire sentence without looking like he just wandered out of his room at a nursing home.
The president-elect argued that the “past four years we’ve had a president who’s made his contempt of our democracy, our Constitution, the rule of law, clear, in everything he has done. He unleashed an all-out assault on the institutions of our democracy from the outset. And yesterday was but the culmination of that unrelenting attack.”
Biden emphasized that “what we witnessed yesterday was not dissent, it was not disorder, it was not protest. It was chaos. They weren’t protesters. Don’t dare call them protesters. They were a riotous mob. Insurrectionists. Domestic terrorists. It’s that simple.”
Biden accused Trump of “inciting a mob to attack the Capitol, to threaten elected representatives of the people of this nation and even the vice president, to stop the Congress from ratifying the will of the American people in a just-completed, free and fair election. Trying to use a mob the silence the voices of nearly 160 million Americans who summoned the courage in the face of a pandemic that threatened our health our lives to cast that sacred ballot.”
“No one can tell me that if it had been a group of Black Lives Matter protesting yesterday there wouldn’t — they wouldn’t have been treated very, very differently than the mob of thugs that stormed the Capitol,” Biden emphasized. And he stressed that “we all know that is true, and it is unacceptable. Totally unacceptable.”
Yes, President-elect Biden, you’re right. BLM would’ve most definitely been treated differently. They wouldn’t have been called rioters for a start. Their actions would’ve been a “mostly peaceful” protest. Individuals participating in the chaos would be labeled as activists fighting against oppression.
None of which is true. Those folks in BLM are terrorists too. They’ve attempted to force political change through acts of violence and destruction.
If Biden really wants to be president, perhaps he needs to start being more consistent in his views.
