Normalizing Riots Has Consequences; If Only the Left and Right Had Come Together to Condemn Violence When It Counted

Normalizing Riots Has Consequences:
Ideologies have consequences.
The Associated Press Stylebook was amended this week to discourage the use of the word “riot” to describe violent protests, instead expanding the definition of “protest” to include violent demonstrations.
By the fall, many media outlets were describing Black Lives Matter race riots as "uprisings" in line with demands made by lefty activists. Democrats and their media vocally insisted that it was false that BLM riots were violent.
How many times did we hear Democrats repeat the MLK quote, "A riot is the language of the unheard."
After a year of normalizing riots, of silencing anyone who dared to condemn rioting as a racist, there's shock at the rioting on Capitol Hill. Rioting is obviously wrong. Much like protesting outside people's homes, doxxing political opponents on social media, and the whole rest of the ugly social justice playbook.
Except it's not wrong if one side normalizes it and then acts shocked when that creates a new normal. --->READ MORE HERE

If Only the Left and Right Had Come Together to Condemn Violence When It Counted
The cities burned, police stations with cops still inside were torched, stores were looted, lasers blinded police officers, Molotov cocktails were served up in riots nearly every night of the spring, summer, and fall. Courthouses and federal buildings were assaulted.
The media and Democrats called the rioters “mostly peaceful.”
District attorneys set rioters free, Kamala Harris sent bail money, and the only ones complaining about it were … us and Trump.
If only the nation would have come together – the Left joining the Right – to denounce the violence when it happened, I believe we would not have seen the disgraceful and outrageous scenes of Wednesday when Trump-supporting protesters shape-shifted into rioters and assaulted the nation’s Capitol Building. --->READ MORE HERE
