Letter: Hypocrisy of the left rings clear

Letter to the Editor

Let me start by saying, I condemn the riots at the Capitol. Democratic leaders all now say there is never a cause worthy of violence. What hypocrisy! They have condoned violent protests by Antifa and Black Lives Matter ever since President Donald Trump has been in office.

When Trump first took office there were riots in Portland, Seattle and other cities around the country, and Democrat mayors and governors let the cities burn.

Democratic leaders in Congress never condemned the destruction. The Women’s March, right after Trump’s inauguration, invaded the Capitol, and Jeff Flake was trapped in an elevator with the invading women’s mob.

Riots have continued every year and climaxed this summer with burning and lootings in most cities in the USA. In Portland, they continued for 156 days. Liberal mayors and governors refused help from Trump and by doing so condoned the violence.

In these riots many policemen were injured and citizens killed — laser lights blinded police officers, police stations were burned, monuments destroyed, and billions of dollars of damage done, in many cases, to minority owners.

Our Vice President Kamala Harris said the riots were needed and should continue until Black Lives Matter and Antifa get the results they want. That statement is much more incendiary than Trump’s statement at the Washington Monument on Jan. 6 when he told the demonstrators to peacefully walk down to the Capitol and make their voices heard. The Democratic Party is the definition of hypocrisy!
