Cold Hard Facts Prove Just How Biased Libs Are About The January 6th Raid
Last year Libs were blatantly obvious with their biased reporting on the Floyd riots. They constantly gave BLM and Antifa cover as they wrecked cities across the nation. There would be fires in the background as the Liberal media reported and they would call the riot mostly peaceful... But when it came to the January 6th raid they couldn't villanize it enough. They refer to it as domestic terrorism and acted like it was the darkest day in recent history. But Real Clear Politics compiled the data on the Floyd Riots versus the January 6th raid and you can tell for yourself which of the two are far worse.
Just look at how different they treated the Floyd Riots and the January 6th raid.
- The summer 2020 riots resulted in some 15 times more injured police officers, 30 times as many arrests, and estimated damages in dollar terms up to 1,300 times more costly than those of the Capitol riot. George Floyd rioters were found to have used more sophisticated and dangerous tactics than did the Capitol rioters, and in some cases weapons of greater lethality.
- Authorities have pursued the largely Trump-supporting Capitol rioters with substantially more vigor than suspected wrongdoers in the earlier two cases. Many accused Capitol rioters, unlike accused participants in the other riots, have been held in pretrial detention for months – with one defendant serving more time than the maximum sentence for the charge to which he pleaded guilty. Some allegedly endured solitary confinement and other mistreatment.
- With authorities applying lenient prosecutorial standards in many major cities torn by the summer riots, the vast majority of charges last year were dismissed, as were charges in the Inauguration 2017 unrest. Charges have to date been dropped in only a single Capitol riot case.
They have a great table that really goes into detail on how much worse the Floyd Riots were. You can view it here.
This is the kind of stuff the MSM is never going to cover. It's like Biden's failing mental health, the MSM just refuses to talk about it.
