Democrats tolerated riots prior to being against them

Daniel Greenfield at Front Page Magazine points out the offensive double-standard the Democrats went by when it came to Antifa and Black Lives Matter riots as opposed to what they think of alleged rioting by conservative groups (and it turns out a lot of the troublemaking appears to have been caused by Antifa infiltrators):
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 media.
While Ghandi was really an evil man, if you look at his history, it's clear the BLM rioters weren't doing it because of his own dark past, but rather, for the sport of destruction for destruction's sake (and let's not forget that BLM committed violence in the name of Jason Blake, who'd been charged with sexual assault). This is absolutely awful in hindsight.

Since we're on the subject, here's more about the Antifa infiltration into pro-Trump circles:
Before the elected representatives could make that decision, protesters stormed the Capitol, evacuated amid scenes of violence. Author Paul Sperry, formerly with Investor’s Business Daily, tweeted, “Former FBI agent on the ground at U.S. Capitol just texted me and confirmed that at least 1 ‘bus load’ of Antifa thugs infiltrated peaceful Trump demonstrators as part of a false Trump flag ops.” That sparked little interest from media and representatives, particularly Democrats, who blamed Trump supporters, and by implication the president.
Not only is this unlikely to be brought up in discussions going forward in the MSM, the investigation into Hunter Biden's crooked deeds will surely disappear as well. It's all part of a very sad ending to the Trump administration.

Update: see also Caroline Glick's column on what's to come. There may be at least one thing in here that's sloppy, but much of what she tells is very spot on, not the least being the lurid shift to political correctness that's occurring in the USA now.

I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
