A video montage that began circulating on social media on January 7, just one day after the chaos at the Capitol, shows the mainstream media excusing violence throughout 2020.
The video, compiled and posted by Grabien Media, shows clips of hosts and guests on left-wing outlets MSNBC and CNN excusing, denying, and defending violence perpetrated by left-wing activists.
It features clips such as a reporter from MSNBC in Minneapolis, Minnesota referring to a protest as “not, generally speaking, unruly” as multiple buildings – including a police station – burned behind him.
Another clip shows a caption on CNN which reads “Fiery But Mostly Peaceful Protests after Police Shooting,” while a video of burning vehicles in Kenosha, Wisconsin plays behind it.
“Thank goodness for the looters, man,” one MSNBC guest declares.
Hosts and guests of these radical left-wing news channels defended the riots, excusing them because America was founded by “conflict with government,” stating that “All punches are not equal, morally.”
CNN host Chris Cuomo was also featured stating: “Show me where it says protesters are supposed to be polite and peaceful,” as if he is completely ignorant of the First Amendment’s “right of the people peaceably to assemble.”
These left-wing activists pretending to to be journalists have excused violence when it is perpetrated by their own side, while condemning the Trump supporters who stormed the Capitol. They act as if they have always been anti-violence, while attacking conservatives who have been condemning violence for the past year.
The chaos in Washington, D.C. during the joint session of Congress held to certify the Electoral College vote appears to be the first time conservatives have resorted to violence and vandalism on a large scale, while the left staged violent ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter events in cities all across the country for the majority of 2020. Yet, conservatives are the only group who have condemned these acts from both sides of the aisle.
Will the hypocrisy and double standards of the left ever be called out?
