Most people do condemn all "civil unrest" including Republicans!!I condemn all "civil unrest."
You only condemn it when the unrestive are espousing grievances and goals you disagree with.
And therein, dear harry, lies the difference.
Except that virtually every person that had anything to say of "worth" were disgusted by what happened - both Democrats and Republicans and all one had to do was listen to what people were saying - no one that I heard state that this was appropriate! Everyone interviewed stated it was not acceptable & all who were a part of this should be charged - and they were. In fact some are still awaiting charges & sentencing, which in and of itself is disgusting!
Unfortunately, even though Trump stated - "...for those of you going to the Capital, go peacefully and voice your concerns". somehow, he was part of this which in and of itself is insane. A lot of what happened happened 15 - 20 minutes before he even finished his speech.
Why isn't Pelosi being held to account? Trump requested assistance with security from Pelosi and was turned down; same with the Mayor of D.C. Why? Has anyone asked them? Why did they turn down the request. Trump did say that because of the large crowd they were expecting that not everyone would behave in a good way which is why he requested additional security. I'm thinking if it was anyone else but Trump who requested the security, in all likelihood, it would have happened.
Hmmm, makes one wonder if they knew something was going to happen doesn't it? Nah, they wouldn't do that would they? Guess that's for the conspirators - which all too often have been right!!
