One of these photos shows people peacefully protesting what they consider to be a serious case of injustice, and another shows a dangerous group of violent thugs threatening Democracy itself. Can you tell which is which?
Which image shows the dangerous, violent mob action? Is it:
A. The images from Kenosha where homes and stores were burned and looted and the CNN news anchor had to wear a gas mask and eye protection, and so much of the city was in flames that they couldn’t provide a shot of the protests that didn’t feature burning cars and buildings?
B. The January 6th attack on the Capital where a crowd of boomers took selfies to send their grandkids, and took almost no precautions to hide their identities as they shuffled through the building?
OK, pencils down. Did you get it right?
Yes, it was the countless nights of burning and looting which followed the death of George Floyd. Far more days of violence, far more millions of dollars of property damage ($2 BILLION in total), looting and vandalism, and far more deaths as a direct result. At the Capital, one person is confirmed to have died- though later reports suggest it was a heart attack later that day somewhere else after they left, and apparently one person shot, though reports a year and a half later are sparce.
Also, I’m not sure if the above picture of the Siege on the Capital is actually from that day, as all of the pictures of people attacking or touring the Capital look pretty much the same except for those flags. It’s still being investigated, though the sex trafficking/slavery of underage girls/and “suicide” of Jefferey Epstein is not. Our leadership in the Democratic party has their priorities.
And if you got this wrong, then maybe, just maybe, you shouldn’t be voting.
