DC Terrorized By Rioters, Par For The Course

The city is a battleground. No one cares.

The Capitol city of the United States of America is being regularly terrorized by anarchist and racist rioters who make their intentions quite clear. Monday and Tuesday it happened again.

When that happens what is the response from the White House and the federal government? Nothing. However, when a few short months months ago DC was set upon by pro-Trump thugs, what did the federal government do? Plenty. So much so that Capitol Hill now resembles a military camp.

Seems there is one standard for politically approved miscreants and one for those not of the prevailing ideology. Both cretins, both threats, both extremists. One was egged on by a loutish demagogue. The other by left wing programmers. Both, in their own ways, hate this country and its freedoms.

FNC: “A video has emerged of protesters in Washington, D.C., chanting ‘burn the precinct to the ground’ during demonstrations following the fatal police shooting of Daunte Wright.  Wright, a 20-year-old Black man, died Sunday after being shot at a traffic stop outside of Minneapolis. The veteran officer who pulled the trigger, Kim Potter – and her boss, Chief Tim Gannon — have since resigned.”

“Every city, every town, burn the precinct to the ground!” the crowd could be heard chanting Monday night in footage taken in northwest Washington, D.C. The video was captured by Ford Fischer. The crowd is heard saying “What do we want? Justice. When do we want it? Now. If we don’t get it burn it down!”

“When Black lives are under attack, what do we do? Stand up, fight back!” the crowd chants in another video. “Take it to the streets, abort the police!” a woman is heard saying in a loudspeaker on board a metro train. After leaving the train, the protesters, according to Fischer, walked through DC’s Chinatown neighborhood and are heard chanting “our motherf—–g streets!” The crowd was estimated to be in the hundreds, Fox 5 DC reported.

Read over closely what they are said, unmolested, in our nation’s Capitol. Now granted, if they stay peaceful they should stay unmolested. But are they peaceful?

They threaten to burn down police precincts in every city and town in America. They say they will burn down more than that. They want to “abort” the police. The clumsy construction of that line was likely just an homage to their general love of abortion. And finally they claim the streets as their own. Couldn’t that be construed as a threat to public safety?

One wonders what would have been the response if instead of these left wing race hustlers another odious group, say the Klan or Nazis, would have said and threatened the same things on the streets of DC? The hue and cry for their physical suppression would drown out all in earshot. Given the threats, not merely free speech but open threats, it could be warranted. But never for left wing rioters, racist breakers of the peace, and anarchists of all varieties. Never for them.
