I just love it! Now many people are concerned and revolted by the riots, looting, deaths and actions of the Washington D.C. protesters, as well they should be. However, where were these same disgusted people when Seattle, Portland, and many more cities were rioting, looting, and burning property this past summer? Nothing was done then and few dissenting voices were heard. Even the police were told to stand down. One astute politician called the rioting in her city just a summer love festival.
Why did we not hear objections from our governors, mayors, senators, House of Representatives, ordinary citizens, and our (honest) news media when this happened to our cities then? And why would the people of Portland re-elect a mayor who allows all this destruction in his own city? Why would Gov. Jay Inslee call out the National Guard for the opening of the 2021 Legislatre and not pressure the Seattle mayor to do the same for the riots in Seattle? I wish I had an answer for these questions but I do not.
As citizens of this great country we need to start voicing our opinions on the wrongs and stand up for what is right. Being passive is not the answer . If we keep electing individuals who allow riots, allow the destruction of our buildings and artifacts, allow defunding our police, allow one-sided opinions, and allow the trampling of our Constitutional rights, then we, the people, will have to suffer the consequences.
