In the aftermath of the Capitol riot on January 6, the Democrats acted as if all 74 million Trump voters were at the Capitol and physically involved in the riot. They have ignored facts that came out afterward from the FBI and other sources that the violence was pre-planned days before the event and they ignore the fact that President Trump offered up to 10,000 National Guard troops to protect the Capitol and all around DC area and was turned down by the House Sgt at Arms who reports directly to Nancy Pelosi. All ignored.
Because of the lies and exploitation of the Capitol riot many conservatives rightly so brought up the fact that the same leftists who cried there was an “insurrection” not only ignored but in many cases encouraged the daily riots that took place in Democrat-run cities across the country, and most in the media and the Democratic Party they justified the violence, claiming fighting against systemic racism rioters and looters can do what they were doing. As if stealing a pair of Nikes is making someone less oppressed. Then-Senator Kamala Harris propped up a bail fund organization that was bailing out criminal rioters so that they could get back on the streets to commit mayhem and havoc again. And she justified it by claiming she was trying to help peaceful protesters, even though peaceful protesters don’t get arrested because it’s legal to protest. Rioters and looters get arrested because it’s illegal to do those things.
MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” show host Joe Scarborough, the guy who looks like the kid on the bridge with the banjo in Deliverance, chimed in to trash people who pointed out the discrepancy, saying “idiots on other cable news channels” who say the attacks on “mom and pop” small businesses “vandalized during the summer riots” is “just as bad as the United States Capitol being vandalized,” Scarborough cried, “No, jackass, it’s not.”
Tragic as it was that five people died during the Capitol riot last month over 25 people were killed during the summer riots in the wake of the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police.
“The Capitol of the United States of America is the center of American democracy,” banjo kid said. “And while I’m a fierce believer in people’s right to defend their private property, I’m not going to confuse a taco stand with the United States Capitol. I’m not going to confuse the selling of tacos with actually moving through a constitutional process.”
This man is Despicable. There were all kinds of brick and mortar businesses that were vandalized, looted, and burned to the ground, businesses that had nothing to do with so-called “systemic racism” or any of the other garbage that the Left uses to justify the violence that happened on a daily routine over the summer. And isn’t it racist according to the standards of the Woke Supremacy to downplay the destruction of a taco stand?
Someone must have let the kid from the bridge know about the tweet because Scarborough came back full of personal insults.
“Do you think it is the same?” the MSNBC host tweeted back in response. “Are you too stupid to understand the destruction of personal property is abhorrent, and at the same time realize that a terrorist attack against the US Capitol is a greater threat to America? Is arson against a warehouse the same as 9/11?”
The Daily Caller replied in kind to Scarborough’s tweet via their original tweet with another video showing a man speaking in front of his store that was reduced to rubble last summer.
“Was Scott Carpenter’s furniture store which was burned down during the riot in Kenosha just a taco stand @JoeNBC?”
Scarborough fired back.
“No jackass. It was a furniture store. And the freaks who burned it down should rot in jail until they pay him back.”
I’m confused. Was Scarborough angry because the Daily Caller didn’t mention a taco stand or was he angry that they embarrassed him for downplaying the destruction of people’s lives?
Richie McGinniss, the Daily Caller’s chief video director, tweeted that “the *federal courthouse in Portland was attacked for over 100 days straight. I was at the Capitol, and I was in Portland. Both were abhorrent because they were both examples of POLITICAL violence. For Joe, the Capitol riot was Trump supporters, and that’s the *real difference.”
Again Scarborough defended himself: “You are being ignorant. I have attacked rioters in Portland since the summer. I have specifically blasted Portland’s mayor and Oregon’s governor repeatedly for letting rioters trash the federal courthouse and destroy the city. Can you do the same to the Trump Terrorists?”
The folks at the Daily Caller didn’t back down. Instead, they provided clips from videos that underscored their case:
The leftist elites really do look down upon the great unwashed and they think that they are better than you. Just ask them, they’ll tell you.
