House Speaker Nancy Pelosi claimed that the Trump supporters who breached the Capitol on Wednesday chose their “whiteness over democracy,” according to the Daily Wire.
“When that assault was taking place on the Capitol, 3,865 people in our country died of the coronavirus, many of them people of color because of the injustice of it all.”
“The next day, on Thursday, 4,000 people died of the coronavirus. Why? Because decisions were made at the highest level, months before in the Oval Office, of denial, distortion, delay, calling it a ‘hoax.’”
“I thought it was going to be an epiphany for those who were in opposition of our democracy to see the light,” Pelosi continued Saturday, referencing the Feast of the Epiphany. “Instead, it was an epiphany for the world to see that there are people in our country, led by this President, for the moment, who have chosen their whiteness over democracy. That’s what this is about.”
“Not only the complicity, the instigation of the President of the United States, must and will be addressed.”
“It’s only a number of days now before we inaugurate a new President.”
“You can’t tell me that if it had been a group of Black Lives Matter protesters yesterday they wouldn’t have been treated very differently than the mob of thugs that stormed the Capitol,” Mr. Biden said.
“We all know that is true. And it is totally unacceptable. Totally unacceptable. The American people saw it in plain view.
Harris spoke of a “justice system that is experienced differently whether you’re white or black,” regarding the Capitol breach.
“Biden and Harris could have provided a moment of unity: everyone of good conscience deplores the riot in the Capitol. Instead, both decided to parrot the woke bulls*** that the police treated the rioters with kid gloves, and would have murdered them en masse were they BLM (Black Lives Matter),” Ben Shapiro wrote.
“That’s categorical nonsense.”
“Over the summer, BLM rioters ran roughshod through NYC, DC, LA, Chicago, and other major cities — and streets were renamed after BLM, police departments defunded, corporate brands cheered them, and politicians marched in solidarity.”
From The Daily Wire:
A reported five people died during the chaos on Wednesday; three perished from “medical emergencies,” one woman was fatally shot by a Capitol Police officer, and a Capitol Officer succumbed to injuries sustained during the Capitol attack.
