Sorry Democrats, you can’t have it both ways. You either treat all violent extremists the same way, or you let them all off the hook.
What happened to Paul Pelosi is unfortunate, and I certainly don’t wish harm on anyone especially because of their political stance or views, but when the Left constantly turns a blind eye to left-wing extremism, it’s hard to feel sorry when it happens to them.
Not only did the Right have to suffer through two full years of ANTIFA and BLM riots that resulted in the deaths of hundreds while American cities were burnt to the ground post-George Floyd, but in the last three months alone, two violent politically motivated attacks occurred by members of the far-left against Republicans, and we didn’t hear a peep out of the mainstream media or Democrats denouncing such violence.
Just this week, a campaign volunteer for Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) was brutally beaten for being a Republican. Four men literally told the volunteer that “Republicans aren’t welcome in this neighborhood.” The volunteer was taken to the hospital by ambulance. The mainstream media completely ignored the story and the Democrats said nothing. Joe Biden didn’t call Marco Rubio or the family of the volunteer to offer condolences, but if it were to happen to a Democrat volunteer, you better believe the story would have been plastered all over CNN for the world to see what “monsters Trump’s extremists are”. Even if it had nothing to do with Trump, they sure as hell would have pinned blame on the former President somehow.
In a completely separate politically motivated incident, On September 18, Caylor Ellingson, 18, was run over by an SUV by Shannon Brandt, a 41-year-old who claimed to have killed the teen for allegedly being a part of a “Republican extremist group.”
A week later, on September 25, North Dakota authorities announced in a press release that beyond the claims made by Shannon Brandt, there was no evidence suggesting that Caylor Ellingson had radical right-wing ties. The attack occurred just a little over one week after President Joe Biden gave the most divisive speech in American history in Philadelphia in which he referred to Republican Trump supporters as “extremists”.
President Joe Biden has repeatedly incited violence both while in office and while on the 2020 Presidential campaign trail. Maxine Waters, Kamala Harris, Nancy Pelosi, Chris Cuomo, and several others have also made it very clear in the past that violent protests are acceptable as long as it’s “for a cause”. The Democrat Party turned a blind eye and has yet to condemn the attacks.
But despite all of the murder, violence, and civil war that the Democrats continue to rage on America, the media refuses to address the blatant attacks and instead continues to falsely blame Donald Trump for 2 hours of riots that occurred at the Capitol on January 6th based purely on speculation of what the former President may have meant when he said: “March peacefully and patriotically to the Capitol”.
Do two wrongs make a right? Of course not, and I’m not suggesting that we too turn a blind eye to violence, but when the Left literally gets away with murder, and the mainstream media runs defense for left-wing criminals, it’s hard to feel sorry for them when violent attacks occur – needless to say, I will not be shedding a tear for Paul Pelosi, but I do wish him a speedy recovery.
