“Whataboutism” Updates: Say, remember when President Trump was denounced by politicians, the media and even some church leaders as a ruthless dictator because officers in DC used tear gas to clear rioters away from historic St. John’s Episcopal Church? They were called “peaceful protesters” who were gassed “without provocation,” even though they burned the church and spent four days attacking Park Service officers with baseball bats, metal poles and glass bottles.
Well, when Antifa rioters pulled the same kind of “peaceful” violence in Portland on Inauguration Day, guess what federal agents, now under the command of President Biden, used to bring them under control? If you guessed tear gas and pepper balls, go to the head of the class. Now, guess how much outrage there was in the media about it.
As I wrote just yesterday, the Antifa thugs think they’re invincible and ungovernable because Democrats let them run riot all year so they could blame their violence on Trump. Now, Trump is gone, Biden is in, and they’re a nuisance that’s outlived its usefulness. I predicted they will quickly learn that they are not “ungovernable,” they are expendable.
“Whataboutism” Part Two: Remember all those months of the media blasting any Republicans who inadvertently mispronounced Kamala Harris’ first name (it’s “Comma-la,” not “Ka-mah-la”) as racists? Well, during the swearing-in ceremony at the Inaugural, guess how Supreme Justice Sonya Sotomayor pronounced it?
