Pelosi Claims Capitol Hill Riots Were Caused By “Whiteness”

It’s hard for the Democrats to wrap their heads around the idea that majority of the American people liked President Trump. Since being elected, President Trump has put America first and helped stimulate one of the largest economies in the world. Yet the Democrats are still wondering what caused the riots at Capitol Hill. From stealing an election to vilifying a sitting President, the left hasn’t stopped harassing Trump and his followers. Now, days after the riots, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi believes she knows what caused Americans to storm the Hill – “Whiteness”.

Speaking with some of her constituents on a video conference call, Pelosi said, “When that assault was taking place on the Capitol, 3,865 people in our country died of the coronavirus, many of them people of color because of the injustice of it all. The next day, on Thursday, 4,000 people died of the coronavirus. Why? Because decisions were made at the highest level, months before in the Oval Office, of denial, distortion, delay, calling it a ‘hoax’.”

That’s when the Speaker decided to transition to the Capitol riots and how it wasn’t a statement on how the American people are growing tired of meaningless politicians. Pelosi said, “I thought it was going to be an epiphany for those who were in opposition of our democracy to see the light. Instead, it was an epiphany for the world to see that there are people in our country, led by this President, for the moment, who have chosen their whiteness over democracy. That’s what this is about.”

That’s right, instead of seeing the error in their ways, the left is now pushing the rhetoric that it was racism that drove the Capitol Hill riots. And this isn’t the viewpoint of just Pelosi. Even the President-elect Joe Biden and Kamala Harris shared the Speaker’s belief.

Last week, Biden told reporters, “You can’t tell me that if it had been a group of Black Lives Matter protesters yesterday they wouldn’t have been treated very differently than the mob of thugs that stormed the Capitol. We all know that is true. And it is totally unacceptable. Totally unacceptable. The American people saw it in plain view.”

Do you agree that protesting is acceptable, but rioting is not?

As for Harris, she believes the actions presented at Capitol Hill show a glaring problem in America. Sharing her statement in a Tweet, Harris claims the riots are shining a light on the “two systems of justice” in the United States.
