Democrats have been playing high and mighty for over a week now over the incident at the Capitol. But they didn’t always disapprove of unrest.
In fact, they were silent for months as the far left rampaged through American cities, burning and looting as they went.
Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida recently called them out on the House floor.

Matt Gaetz Goes Nuclear On the House Floor and Dems Lose It as He Calls Out Their Hypocrisy for Months of Riots
Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz didn’t hold back and put up a very large, figurative mirror in front of the Democrats in the House on Wednesday and made it clear that while the riot at the Capitol was wrong, the Democrats were literally cheering on months of destruction and violence during the Black Lives Matter riots.
And the Democrats really didn’t like hearing about it.
During his time, Gaetz made it clear that rioting in any form is wrong, including the riots at the Capitol, but he had a message for Democrats.
“But make no mistake, the left in America has incited far more political violence than the right,” said Gaetz. “For months our cities burned, police stations burned, our businesses were shattered, and they said nothing!”
“Or, they cheerlead for it, and they fundraised for it, and they allowed it to happen in the greatest country in the world,” he continued.

Good on @RepMattGaetz for calling this out. They’re trying to take the heat of themselves while getting indignant about the Capitol riot. It’s all wrong and they need to own it. pic.twitter.com/qCwlzuL6Db

Liberals in media are guilty of the same double standard.
Our riots were cooler than yours: During their handoff tonight, Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo argued that the BLM riots they encouraged over the summer were more righteous than the Capitol Hill attack, thus they're not "apples to apples." pic.twitter.com/E03nyiGKRI

Everything is different when the left does it.
