Where are the Congressional Hearings for the George Floyd Riots?
A Rasmussen/National Police Association poll released on July 21, 2021, shows more voters favor a Congressional investigation into the violent Black Lives Matter/Antifa riots in the summer of 2020 than the so-called January 6 “insurrection.” With that in mind, we thought it would be interesting to compare and contrast the two.
As we have seen since January 6, Democrats have seized on the incident to commission a January 6 inquiry, no doubt reminiscent of a Spanish inquisition, ostensibly to look into what led up to the siege at the US Capitol. Unfortunately, this inquisition committee was nothing more than a politically charged witch hunt with the intention of laying the entire blame for the incident on former President Trump and his supporters.
That became quite clear when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) Pelosi, tapped Rep. Adam Kinzinger (Ill.) to serve alongside fellow GOP Trump critic Rep. Liz Cheney (Wyo.) on the committee after she blocked pro-Trump Reps. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and Jim Banks (R-Ind.) from serving on the panel. Jordan and Banks both voted to overturn the 2020 presidential election results hours after a pro-Trump mob violently breached the Capitol during the election certification process.
Pelosi was apparently afraid of what they might seek to gain information on, such as why repeated requests from former Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund for national guard troops were summarily rejected. That of course falls on Pelosi, who is in charge of Capitol security.
Meanwhile, Biden, the Justice Department and the rest of the Democrats totally ignored the violence across the country that started last year and continues in some cases unabated today. The organized riots of the summer of 2020 have given way to skyrocketing violent crime since then.
According to the Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project (ACLED), 95 percent of the riots that took place that summer were linked to Black Lives Matter. Six percent of the protests which occurred between May 26 and Sept. 5 involved rioting, looting and similar violence, including 47 fatalities, The Frontier Post reported.
Of the 633 incidents coded as riots, 88 percent were coded as involving Black Lives Matter activists. All told, there were 12,045 incidents.
