What if the Capitol Rioters Had Been Democrats and Ashli Babbitt a Black Woman?

Isn’t it remarkable how well order can be maintained when a clear desire to have it so is manifested?

 

President Biden’s inauguration went off without even a hint of the violence seen a week earlier, when zealous but misguided Trump supporters broke into the Capitol in what has been widely but erroneously, often hysterically, described as an “insurrection.” But even if one accepts the term’s current usage, how refreshing it is to see an instance of violent opposition to law and order receive such universal disapproval. How welcome it is to hear the half-wits on cable television and even Nancy Pelosi express their appreciation for the police. Yes, after a season of rioting in cities across the land following the death of George Floyd, all of which was excused, ignored, or euphemized as “mostly peaceful protests” by our sophisticated betters in government, the media, and academia, the Left has finally found a riot it can condemn, with all its MAGA hats and American flags and, of course worst of all, white people.

It is at this point that the prudent conservative writer, aware of the ongoing effort to cancel people of his benighted sort, is compelled to offer a statement of principles. Here are mine, as they pertain to the current political climate. I believe: 

  • People should obey the law.
  • Those who don’t should be justly punished as the law prescribes.
  • Both of the above should be applied equally regardless of one’s ethnicity or where one falls on the political spectrum.

Simple, right? It wasn’t so long ago that nearly everyone could agree on these rules, but recent events and the demands of electoral politics have inspired a previously unimaginable elasticity of principle in some quarters, most conspicuously among those same sophisticated betters in government, the media, and academia, who were aghast at the sight of federal officers defending against the nightly siege of the federal courthouse in Portland, but who welcomed, temporarily, 25,000 troops brought in to protect Biden’s inauguration.:snip:

Shattered glass, ransacked offices: Images of damage at U.S. Capitol left by pro-Trump mob (nbcnews.com)

To begin with, the capitol would have really been "ransacked" as opposed to some broken glass and a few papers strewn around. 

After that, the building would have been burnt to the ground and every liquor store, Footlocker, and Wal-Mart in D.C. and the surrounding suburbs would have been looted.

And it would have been a " justified" "peaceful" protest none the less.
