So, if you suggest that the riots at the capitol were peaceful, then the BLM riots were peaceful is that what you're saying?

That is very true. However, we're looking at two different causes.

The riots in the summer were the result of a clear, unmistakeable use of excessive force resulting in the slow death of an American, regardless of criminal background. The problem is, this issue had been going on for years. It's never stopped. Racism still exists.

Now true, while rioting is not the way, one can make an attempt to understand the reason. The Floyd riots were unacceptable. With support from findings from the FBI, there is speculation that the riots in this time were instigated by the right-wing extremists. But, that's not the point. The point was the message behind the protests/riots for George Floyd. Social justice. Unfortunately, this concept has become a buzzword with a negative connotation concocted by the right to represent extreme feminism and LGBTQ activists who give the concept a bad name. People were tired of seeing other people suffer police brutality and excessive force.

This riot, this attack on the heart of our government was not for social justice. It was for politically perceived justice that is the subject of debate and discussion. The fact is that all legal options have been exhausted in proving there was any voter fraud. Having gone through the supreme courts of various states and the SCOTUS itself, there was no reason to believe that Biden would not be inaugurated, following the news that Georgia's Senatorial representation had been completely flipped to Democrat seats. Democrats had now achieved complete victory in the house, the presidency, and the Senate. (There hasn't been a President to lose all three points of contention since the early 20th century.) Thus "Stop the Steal" was displayed by many protesters and rioters. No one's lives were in danger by the cause represented. Only a shift in power and who makes the policies.

Does this summation of information invalidate one over the other? Objectively? No. Everyone has a different moral compass. Personally, I value the cause for human life and am more lenient to those who champion the cause.

Violence in support of political power? Yeah... I'm gonna have to give that a hard pass.

"The riots in the summer were the result of a clear, unmistakeable use of excessive force resulting in the slow death of an American,"

Nope. George Floyd died of a fentanyl overdose. That restraint has been used hundreds of times over the past decades and produced ZERO fatalities. Fentanyl overdoses? Those have killed many, many people.

"one can make an attempt to understand the reason."

Why did anyone "protest" and riot over Ricardo Munoz? Can you answer that?

Dylan Roof murdered numerous people in a church just because they were black, and you're saying racism doesn't exist anymore?

I don’t think racism is a real moral category. Hatred is real. The hatred that appears to have motivated Roof is a real moral problem. “Racism”? If it ever meant something, it’s been abused to the point of meaninglessness.

So killing someone specifically because of their race isn't a real moral category?

Murder is real. What does the motive change? If you’re killed because of your race, are you *extra* dead?

Yes they're still dead but killing somebody because of some aspect of themselves that they can't change is horrible

Blacks murder twice as many whites in this country as the reverse. TWICE AS MANY, EVERY YEAR. I don’t care why they do it. I’d just like them to stop.

That's changing the subject. We were talking about killing someone BECAUSE of their skin color

Wisconsin 2012 Sikh Temple shooting - Target, Sikh - Perpetrator Wade Michael Page, White Supremacist; American Neo Nazi
Charlottesville Church Shooting 2015 - Target African American Church Goers, Perpetrator: Dylann Roof, White Supremacist; American Neo-Nazi (the guys that hang around people waving confederate flags)
Pittsburgh 2018 Synagogue Shooting - Target: Tree of Life – Or L'Simcha Congregation. Perpetrator Robert Gregory Bowers, White Supremacist
2019 El Paso Shooting Target: Hispanic and Latino Americans
Perpetrator: Patrick Wood Crusius - White Supremacist, inspired by the above mass killings. Echoed Trumps verbiage from the conspiracy theory of "The Great Replacement."
October 2018 United States Mail Bombing Attempts Target: CNN and 13 Democratic Party members and prominent critics of Donald Trump. - At sentencing stated "first was how to tone down the liberal left violence platform." He wrote that he believed prominent Democrats were encouraging violence, and said that he had been attacked personally.
Granted, not racism. However, it still shows that right wing extremism is far more rampant, deliberate and more associated to terrorism than the left.

How many mass shootings have Democrats done I wonder? How many bombings have they done?

And these examples are just where a large number of people who had been injured/killed occurred.
I didn't bother with the single body counts.. And of this data group, this is only a narrow selection for the sake of examples.

Yes, racism and targeted violence those of specific religious/political beliefs exist. It's called right-wing extremism. It happens more than you think.

And yet, year after year, black people in America murder twice as many white people as the reverse, despite being outnumbered five to one. And anti-white festering shitbags like you never mention it once, never pay the slightest attention to their constant, vicious, pointless violence.

You pick out big, memorable instances, but the day-to-day statistics tell a far different story.

Not every legal U.S. citizen is an American. Sorry. A pregnant Mexican woman can come across the border, give birth in one of our hospitals paid for by our tax dollars, and make her child a U.S. citizen. That kid is still a Mexican. There is no magic dirt.

Many of those who have been destroying our country this past year are not American, whatever citizenship they might hold.

This was as close to the Capitol as they were allowed in the summer. Please note that Lafayette Square is normally a public space. If it's sedition to be in the way of Trump's photo op at the church, you're the problem here, not me.

Fake news again. They found weapons caches with IEDs on the sides of the road and antifa was attacking police before the tear gas.

People were there, lokiare. Film cameras were rolling just because it was a normal day at Lafayette Square and that's where people film. People saw William Barr standing with the Federal Police giving them orders, meticulously planning the whole thing, then the whole square was up to its neck in rubber bullets within minutes. Trump took a picture with a Bible less than a quarter of an hour later - which he wouldn't have been allowed to do if your IED story held ANY water whatsoever. If it started with Antifa attacking, the President wouldn't have walked out the gate ten minutes later, would he?

You are wrong about everything. You're a liar. Nobody believes you.

Well there were people in Minneapolis when 238 buildings were burned too but hey.....cray cray is cray cray. The reason can be adjusted to fit any narrative however in the end it is crazy peeps doing dumb shit because no one stops them and then when they DO stop them they do it in a way that is over the top. Like the lady shot in the capitol building was wrong but they could have tazed here she had nothing in her hands. Just kinda sad how it always plays out. Nobody wins. Well nature I suppose. Because in the end the only thing we matter too is each other. We are simply future dust to the natural world.

Yes, and CNN cut out the parts where they were throwing bottles of urine at the police and the police finding the IEDs on the side of the road. Do some research. Everyone knows this but you apparently.
