Last summer after we were put into lockdowns over the pandemic. BLM and Antifa took to the streets oftentimes without masks and just destroyed cities. It was ridiculous. They were demanding police be defunded as they gave a prime example for why we need the police… But as they were committing arsons and looting the MSM had their back. Every night the MSM was singing their praises, practically encouraging the riots. But when a few misguided Trump supporters raided the U.S. Capitol Building Dems and the MSM changed their tune, they were practically calling for public executions. But Real Clear Politics laid out all of the facts from the summer of rioting and January 6th raid and found that there was no comparison the BLM/Antifa riots were far worse.
Just look at how different they treated the Floyd Riots and the January 6th raid.
The summer 2020 riots resulted in some 15 times more injured police officers, 30 times as many arrests, and estimated damages in dollar terms up to 1,300 times more costly than those of the Capitol riot. George Floyd rioters were found to have used more sophisticated and dangerous tactics than did the Capitol rioters, and in some cases weapons of greater lethality.
Authorities have pursued the largely Trump-supporting Capitol rioters with substantially more vigor than suspected wrongdoers in the earlier two cases. Many accused Capitol rioters, unlike accused participants in the other riots, have been held in pretrial detention for months – with one defendant serving more time than the maximum sentence for the charge to which he pleaded guilty. Some allegedly endured solitary confinement and other mistreatment.
With authorities applying lenient prosecutorial standards in many major cities torn by the summer riots, the vast majority of charges last year were dismissed, as were charges in the Inauguration 2017 unrest. Charges have to date been dropped in only a single Capitol riot case.
They have a great table that really goes into detail on how much worse the Floyd Riots were. You can view it here.
There were more deaths, assaults, weapons, and they destroyed billions of dollars worth of property during the Floyd riots. There really is no contest as to which was worse. But the Dems claim January 6th was domestic terrorism while the Floyd riots were peaceful…
