The hypocrisy of the Capitol Riot hearings by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi
Season 3, Episode 4
The protests that turned violent on January 6, 2021 have been turned into a political weapon that is being used to bludgeon critics of the Democratic Party and President Joe Biden. The advocates of the House Select Committee hearings on the so-called riots or the "insurrection" as the Jan. 6 protests are being described by the Democrats and the biased mainstream news media, assert falsely that critics of the hearings are defending the violence.
That's not true of course. Anyone who engages in violence during the Jan. 6 protests at the Capitol should be prosecuted used with evidence and punished appropriately, based on the weight of their crimes.
The real issue however is how the Democrats have closed their eyes to the other riots or insurrection that began on May 25, 2020 when George Floyd was killed by an irresponsible Minneapolis Police officer, Derek Chauvin. Chauvin deserved to be prosecuted but he did not deserve to be sentenced to 22 years in prison, as he was. The killing was unintentional, accidental, not premeditated. But to satiate their political base, the Democrats pushed for the harshest punishment calling anyone who defended Chauvin or criticized the biased, illegal process of the hearings racist.
During the 4 to 6 hours of the Jan. 6 protests, anyone who engaged in violence should be prosecuted.
But the May 25 killing of George Floyd that resulted more than 3 months of violence, looting, arson and even killing, those rioters should be prosecuted fully, too. But they have not been prosecuted fully. In fact, the Democrats who are screaming to Lynch the Jan. 6 "rioters" undermined the police response to the post-Floyd murder protests. Police were ordered in many cities to not get in the way of the rioters or the true insurrectionists who were destroying the fabric of America and posing as a real threat to American Democracy.
Where are the Select Committee hearing son the post George Floyd killing riots and insurrection?
That's the true hypocrisy.
The Jan. 6 protestors who engaged inv ioelcne for four to six hours were Republicans who supported Trump. The May 25 rioters who engaged in violence, looting, vandalism, arson and even killing for more than three full months through the end of August 2020 were Democrats.
Both should be fully investigated or none should be investigated.
