In 2018, the media was writing up glowing stories about the hundreds of
Women’s March members who were engaging in "direct action” to disrupt
the Senate’s Kavanaugh hearings.

Hundreds of members from the radical leftist group had invaded the hearings
and were arrested. Their travel expenses and bail for the disruptions were
covered by the Women’s March. Radicals from the March and other leftist
groups blocked hallways, shouted down Senate members, and draped protest
banners from balconies. Democrats cheered them on.

When a leftist mob assailed the Supreme Court, pounding on the doors, MSNBC
called it an “extraordinary moment” and praised the crowd, “besieging
the Supreme Court” and “confronting senators”.

"If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department
store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you
push back on them," Rep. Maxine Waters had urged earlier that year.

Later, the Democrat House member told MSNBC, "They’re going to absolutely
harass them".

In 2020, Black Lives Matter rioters vandalized the Lincoln Memorial and the
WW2 Memorial, along with statues of Gandhi, General Kosciuszko, and Andrew
Jackson. The racist thugs marched through the city starting fires,
including at a historic church, and tried to besiege the White House.
Attempts by federal law enforcement to fight BLM terrorism were falsely
denounced as a brutal attack on “peaceful protesters”, and as
“militarism” and “fascism”.

Democrat House members took to proposing bills to protect the racist mobs
from law enforcement. Meanwhile the BLM mob besieged the White House and
battled Secret Service personnel, allegedly forcing the evacuation of
President Trump and his family to a bunker.

This was the new normal enthusiastically supported by Democrats and the

A bail fund backed by Senator Kamala Harris and Biden campaign staffers
focused on helping the rioters and looters get out of prison. Along with
any other criminals along for the ride.

Violent protests, including those targeting public officials and
legislative bodies, had been championed and normalized by Democrats and
their media over the last four years. That included the harassment of
officials, property destruction, and assaulting law enforcement.

Now, as the Democrats expect to take power, they suddenly decided that
rioting is bad.

Before the Save America protest even began, the same Washington D.C.
authorities who had championed and protected the Black Lives Matter riots,
prepared for a crackdown.

“We want the military, we want troops from out of state out of
Washington, D.C.,” Mayor Muriel Bowser had ranted when BLM was attacking
national memorials and the White House.

“We will not allow people to incite violence, intimidate our residents or
cause destruction in our city,” Bowser now insisted, demanding that the
National Guard come out to stop the protests.

Unless they're Democrats, she failed to mention.

D.C. Attorney General Karl Racine had responded to the Black Lives Matter
assault by condemning law enforcement. He had issued a statement falsely
accusing President Trump of "responding to nonviolent demonstration with
war-like tactics".

"We —the Mayor, the Council, OAG, and MPD—must commit to standing in
between our community and the boot of tyranny. And we must act on this
commitment. We must start by promising to defend our residents from harm
while they engage in peaceful, nonviolent protest.”

"My level of anxiety is high. My preparation is even more intense than
that," Racine was telling the media before the pro-Trump Save America rally

The double standard was obvious and blatant. The Democrats and media had
cheered Black Lives Matter violent protests. They had colluded in previous
invasions of Congress and the harassment of elected officials. But now they
wanted a violent riot they could condemn.

And such a riot would helpfully put to bed any further questions about a
rigged election.

After a massive peaceful rally by Save America protesters, who had been
addressed by President Trump, a smaller group marched on Congress. The MPD
however reacted very differently than it had to previous Black Lives Matter
and four years of leftist rallies.

In the resulting confrontation, a number of fringe elements, Neo-Nazis,
Groypers, Boogaloo Bois, a leftist-libertarian anarchist group that
collaborates with Antifa and Black Lives Matter, took the opportunity to
cause damage and stage photo-ops for the media. Unfortunately some
legitimate conservative protesters who had entered the building were caught
in the violence.

But the media stars of the confrontation were not conservatives and were

One photo showed Nick Fuentes, the alt-right Groyper leader whose
antisemitic group had previously shut down a Turning Point USA event by
booing Donald Trump Jr. off the stage, and Tim ‘Baked Alaska’ Gionet, a
former Black Lives Matter supporter and BuzzFeed employee, who has a
history of going back and forth between the alt-right and the Left.

Another appeared to show Matthew Heimbach, formerly with the National
Socialist Movement, an alleged Neo-Nazi leader, who had previously argued
in court that his actions were President Trump’s fault and that Trump
should be held legally liable.

Much as in Charlottesville, marginal figures who were hostile to President
Trump, to Republicans, and to conservatives, had taken center stage at the
behest of the media.

The purpose of the entire circus was to provide a propaganda opportunity
for the Left.

The outrage over the protests is a farce coming from a political movement
that advocated terrorizing Republican elected officials, that aided
invasions of Congress, and that supported the Black Lives Matter riots
which, aside from terrorizing D.C., also wrecked much of the country.

Why is broken glass on Capitol Hill so much more precious than the broken
glass that ended the dreams of store owners in Kenosha? Where was all the
outrage, the tears wept for our country when Black Lives Matter thugs were
prying open shops around the country, looting them, and assaulting their
owners on a scale so vast it racked up $2 billion in damages?

“Please, show me where it says protesters are supposed to be polite and
peaceful,” CNN’s Chris Cuomo had barked while his news network showed
rioting and looting in New York.

Riots are obviously wrong. Except that Democrats and the media decided that
wasn’t true.

Martin Luther King's infamous quote, "a riot is the language of the
unheard", popped up in Time, USA Today, and on CNN. “Violence was
critical to the success of the 1960s civil rights movement,” a Washington
Post op-ed argued. The AP urged reporters to use "uprising" instead of
"riot" to describe the violence, while suggesting that protests can be
violent and that reporting should not focus on the "property
destruction”, but instead on the “underlying grievance".

A subsidiary of one of the big 5 publishers put out a book titled, "In
Defense of Looting."

You can’t normalize political violence and then expect it to be a
one-sided affair. After months in which BLM mobs attacked a federal
courthouse in Portland, throwing fireworks and shining lasers in the eyes
of law enforcement personnel, toppled statues across the country, and
injured hundreds of police officers, the Democrats and their media are
suddenly outraged.

How, in the midst of all this rioting, could anyone get the idea that
rioting is okay?

Laws only work when they apply to everyone. When violence is okay for some,
but not for others, then a violent struggle ensues until a totalitarian
monopoly on violence is achieved.

Or until we come to our senses.

There’s little question as to which side of the political spectrum has
championed and mainstreamed violence for over a century. The very different
fate of Kluxers and the Weathermen, trailer parks for the former and
academic careers for the latter, show which side finds political violence
not only acceptable, but praiseworthy. And this is no different.

Contrary to the media’s spin, Republicans have never normalized violence.
And Republican political power doesn’t depend on political terror and
violence. Leftist power invariably does.

The Left began a new age of political violence in 2016. It can turn it off
anytime it wants to.

The problem is that it won’t, and an illiberal partisan media and
accompanying cultural establishment will never dare to suggest that maybe
there should be fewer riots and threats.

And that means the violence will escalate. Opportunists will seize the
moment to play agent provocateurs, creating memorable images for media
propagandists to justify a crackdown.

The protesters in D.C. had a legitimate grievance. And they still do. The
outrage over stolen elections won’t be suppressed this way. The mass
movement in D.C. is the true resistance.

There is a great deal of irony in quoting "a riot is the language of the
unheard" to describe the race riots of a movement with unlimited political
and corporate backing, whose message is heard all the time, but not to
address a movement that is genuinely unheard. Before the fighting started,
there was virtually no media coverage of President Trump’s speech and the

Press conferences that mention election fraud aren’t aired. Articles and
videos questioning the election are censored. That is the true voice of the
unheard who are more so than ever.

Democrats and the media normalized violence when they were in the
opposition and now want to normalize the suppression of political protests
and speech as they expect to take power.

But media spin isn’t real life. And it’s a lot easier to break a
country than to put it back together.
