After hundreds of leftists aligned with Antifa and Black Lives Matter turned a peaceful D.C. MAGA march into an occasion for assault, arson, and other forms of violent chaos, conservatives blasted Democrats – up to and including Joe Biden – for their failure to condemn the people on their side of the political divide.
“It’s egregious to see that kind of violence break out against really peaceful individuals who were in D.C. to show support for President Trump,” Trump campaign spokesperson Erin Perrine said. “Unfortunately, this is not the first time this kind of violent attack has happened against Trump supporters. I remember back in New Hampshire in the primaries when a 16-year-old boy was punched in the face for standing there wearing a MAGA hat.”
Breitbart’s Kyle Morris tweeted: “Today, one week after Biden called for unity and his supporters took to the streets to celebrate his media-projected win, Trump supporters were attacked in our nation’s capital by far-left protesters and Antifa. Not one Democrat member of Congress has denounced today’s violence.”
As far as we’ve seen, that mostly remains true three days later.
“Sad, but a valuable lesson in socialism for those kids,” wrote Fox News’s Rachel Campos-Duffy alongside a video of a family being harassed by Antifa members. “The next lesson will be tomorrow when their parents show how the #fakenews media refuses to cover the violent, vile unAmerican actions of the Biden voters today.”
At long last, Joe Biden came out of the woodwork to denounce the violence.
Well, okay, he actually sent his spokesperson out to do it for him. And he didn’t call out BLM by name. And he didn’t mention Antifa.
Instead, he informed the public that he “continues to denounce all acts of violence.”
When Trump tried using that kind of language, he inspired the news media to ask him a thousand times, in a thousand different ways, if he disavows white supremacism, the Proud Boys, David Duke, the KKK, and everyone in between. And when he answered yes to all of those questions, they still wrote stories saying that Trump refuses to denounce white supremacists.
We’re sure the media will do the same when it comes to Biden and these leftist radicals.
Any day now.
