Trump’s legal team unleashed a video showing America just how concerned Democrats really are about purportedly ‘inciting’ riots.
The Democrats’ credibility would be better on the issue of inciting riots if they weren’t flagrant hypocrites, turning a blind eye to months-long riots carried out in numerous U.S. cities in 2020. The Dems made several statements that not only seemed to condone the rioting, they issued incendiary statements that appear to have fanned the flames.
The left-wing Guardian cited data from the Armed Conflict Location and Event Data project (ACLED), a non-profit organization that collaborates with a group of researchers at Princeton. It found:
Nine of the people killed during protests were demonstrators taking part in Black Lives Matter protests. Two were conservatives killed after pro-Trump “patriot rallies”. All but one were killed by fellow citizens.
The Antifa-fueled Black Lives Matter riots in 140 cities following the gruesome death of George Floyd at the hands of police led to at least $2 billion in damages, at least nine people killed, hundreds of arrests and the National Guard called in 21 states.
The Antifa/BLM riots even included one at the nation’s capitol that went on for weeks in June 2020. Dozens of police officers and secret service agents were injured, as reported by CNN:
The officers and agents were injured when protesters threw “projectiles such as bricks, rocks, bottles, fireworks and other items,” according to the statement. “Personnel were also directly physically assaulted as they were kicked, punched and exposed to bodily fluids.”
In terms of scale and cost, the Antifa-fueled BLM riots were objectively worse than the riots at the Capitol building breach. While over 600 suspects were charged in these riots, most of them summarily let go, a little over 200 suspects were charged in the Capitol riots. However, there is an all-out mission to make the 2020 Capitol riots look worse than the months of rioting in America’s biggest cities, which killed far more.
The Democrats are abject hypocrites on the issue of purportedly ‘inciting’ riots. America was shown that to be the case, thanks to the Trump Team’s video of the Democrats’ own statements.
