Riots are wrong, unless they’re done by Black Lives Matter; or is it riots are right, unless they’re done by Trump supporters. Media flip flops make it hard to keep up. From Daniel Payne at justhenews.com:
The violent, deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday has prompted numerous media players to apparently flip the script on violent protests, brushing aside standards that they established last summer when much of the country was gripped by Black Lives Matter-led violence and rioting in major American cities.
Wednesday’s riot, in which an unarmed woman was shot by a U.S. Capitol Police officer, was spun off from a massive “Stop the Steal” rally organized by supporters of President Donald Trump in protest of congressional certification of President-elect Joe Biden’s 2020 election win. A large group of attendees from that march eventually stormed the steps of the U.S. Capitol, pushing back a police barricade.
A smaller but still sizable portion of that group made its way inside, breaking windows and driving lawmakers into evacuation while effectively seizing control of portions of the Capitol for a period of time.
While there, protesters dangled from ledges in the Senate chambers, occupied and trashed the offices of various elected officials, stole and/or defaced property, and clashed with police. In many cases law enforcement had their weapons drawn and pointed at protesters. Ashli Babbit, a 35-year-old U.S. Air Force veteran and Trump supporter from Ocean Beach, Calif. was shot in the neck and was later pronounced dead.
