Before diving into the story and the poll results, just ask yourself one question: Who did more overall damage to the country? BLM riots or one riot at the Capitol on January 6?
At least one poll shows 2 out of 3 people polled would rather see the riots sparked by Black Lives Matter investigated instead of the one day riot at the US Capitol on January 6.
There has been so much more damage done by BLM rioters, stores looted, and physical attacks on fellow Americans. Of course, it’s difficult and likely impossible to say that all riots attributed to BLM was actually conducted by BLM associated people, because there are people who find riots to be an opportune time to loot stores for their own personal wealth – and they don’t actually care about the cause.
In reality, if you’re looting a store or burning something down, then you probably don’t care about much at all except for yourself and that’s quite obvious. Otherwise, you wouldn’t burn down your own stinking neighborhood as a form of “activist” and “peaceful protest.”
Here’s a George Floyd riot video:
Here’s a US Capitol riot video:
Daily Wire reported on the poll, stating the following:
In all, two out of three likely U.S. voters say they believe Congress should open an official investigation into “the violent protests” which blazed a trail of arson and looting through major and mid-sized cities nationwide. On the other hand, fewer than half (49%) of Americans support Pelosi’s investigation of the D.C. riot in which rioters protesting the 2020 presidential election results stormed the capitol.
Pelosi’s investigation is a waste of time. She claims it’s not to attack Donald Trump, but I think she’s a liar and in my opinion, they are doing this specifically to target Trump. Perhaps there’s a way Democrats can get him in trouble so he can’t run for president in 2024, if he does so. I don’t think Democrats will ever admit that, but it’s certainly possible.
Support for a federal inquiry into the riots that engulfed U.S. cities after the death of George Floyd cut deep across racial and political lines. “Sixty-seven percent (67%) of whites, 64% of black voters, 66% of Hispanics and 62% of other minorities think Congress should investigate the 2020 riots in U.S. cities,” reported Rasmussen Reports. “Seventy-five percent (75%) of Republicans, 60% of Democrats and 63% of voters not affiliated with either major party say Congress should investigate last year’s violent protests.”
I’m surprised the stats on this weren’t higher. Those riots were atrocious and destroyed businesses and caused harm to people. That didn’t fix or solve anything at all. It didn’t send a message. Rioting never sends a message that lasts long enough for it to make a difference. There has to be another way to send a strong message without destroying our own cities.
The Speaker’s controversial select committee stands on shakier ground. Americans were almost evenly divided on whether members of Congress should launch another examination of the Capitol riot, which Pelosi and her fellow Democrats label an “insurrection”: 42% of respondents told pollsters that the event does not merit a national inquest, with 49% in favor. By contrast, only 21% of Americans said Congress should not investigate the riots surrounding the Black Lives Matter movement.
It’s my belief that this investigation is just a waste of time. We already know what happened that day. Some bad things happened, of course, and anyone who broke a law should be prosecuted accordingly.
However, are the authorities going to replay the George Floyd riot videos and actively seek every single looter and criminal from those days too?
If we investigate one riot, then we should investigate them all. I think that’s a fair solution that no one could disagree with.
But is anything fair in politics? Sure doesn’t seem that way, especially with Joe Biden’s broken administration running things into the ground.
