ANALYSIS – As the establishment media, the current Biden administration, and its Democrat allies in Congress, continue to aggressively push the overwrought narrative that the January 6 Capitol riot was worse than 9/11, while the BLM riots of last year were ‘mostly peaceful,’ here are some simple, undisputed, fully substantiated facts to compare.
We report. You decide.
BLM RIOTS (aka ‘The 2020 Summer of Love’)
• 2,000 police officers injured nationwide.
• $2 BILLION in damages (largest riot damages in U.S. history).
- No rioters were killed by police.
- 19 people were killed during just 14 days of BLM rioting.
- The killing of police officers nationwide surged 28% in 2020 during the BLM riots and protests.
CAPITOL RIOT (aka ‘The Deadly Insurrection’)
• 140 Police officers were injured.
• $1.5 million in damages (including scratches to Nancy Pelosi’s desk and podium).
• ONE unarmed rioter Ashli Babbitt was killed by the Capitol Police, with no public accountability.
• NO others were killed during the Capitol Riot. * **
*NOTE – As documented above — at the U.S. Capitol, one Capitol Police officer (Brian Sicknick) died of a stroke unrelated to his fight with rioters, and three civilians outside of the Capitol — out of tens of thousands of peaceful protesters — died of medical conditions.)
**NOTE – Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) did claim to suffer severe emotional trauma and PTSD from the Jan. 6 riot — while she was in her office a block away from the Capitol building where the riot occurred.
LEGAL DISCLAIMER ⚠️ – This post is well-documented, constitutionally protected free speech, and in no way intended to minimize the violence and criminality of some of those who rioted at the Capitol on Jan.6. Nor is this intended to, in any way, fall under the currently undefined term of ‘extremism’ being promoted by the partisans and ideologues now running DHS, DOJ, DOD, and the VA.
