Report: 2020 Antifa/BLM-Led Riots Injured More Police Officers, Caused More Damage, and Resulted in More Arrests Than The Capitol Riot

Report: 2020 Antifa/BLM-Led Riots Injured More Police Officers, Caused More Damage, and Resulted in More Arrests Than The Capitol Riot

“The summer 2020 riots resulted in some 15 times more injured police officers, 30 times as many arrests, and estimated damages in dollar terms up to 1,300 times more costly than those of the Capitol riot,” RealClearInvestigations noted in their analysis.

Though Americans of all political stripes were united in outrage over the Capitol riots, the aftermath of what happened on January 6th has seen fierce political divisions further inflamed over what some conservatives view as grotesque and ridiculous comparisons by liberals of the Capitol riots to last month’s deadly suicide bombings in Kabul, Afghanistan as well as to the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

On the flip side, liberals and their allies in the mainstream press have worked overtime to downplay more apropos contrasts conservatives have made between the Capitol riots and last year’s Antifa/Black Lives Matter-led riots, the latter of which took place over a period of several months in Democrat-run cities across America after the May 25th, 2020 officer-involved death of Minneapolis resident George Floyd.

While they refrained from drawing any hard conclusions, RealClearInvestigations did an in-depth analysis of the data from not just the Capitol riots and last year’s Antifa/BLM-led riots, but also the January 2017 riots that took place during then-President Trump’s inauguration.

Here were some of their findings:

-The summer 2020 riots resulted in some 15 times more injured police officers, 30 times as many arrests, and estimated damages in dollar terms up to 1,300 times more costly than those of the Capitol riot. George Floyd rioters were found to have used more sophisticated and dangerous tactics than did the Capitol rioters, and in some cases weapons of greater lethality.

-Authorities have pursued the largely Trump-supporting Capitol rioters with substantially more vigor than suspected wrongdoers in the earlier two cases. Many accused Capitol rioters, unlike accused participants in the other riots, have been held in pretrial detention for months – with one defendant serving more time than the maximum sentence for the charge to which he pleaded guilty. Some allegedly endured solitary confinement and other mistreatment.

-With authorities applying lenient prosecutorial standards in many major cities torn by the summer riots, the vast majority of charges last year were dismissed, as were charges in the Inauguration 2017 unrest. Charges have to date been dropped in only a single Capitol riot case.

Another key point to note about last summer’s riots were the targets in some of the riots. It’s not uncommon to see liberals try to argue that the Capitol riots were “symbolically” worse because the Capitol building was targeted during what was supposed to be part of the peaceful transfer of power process.

What they conveniently forget, however, is that in some cities, left-wing rioters deliberately targeted government buildings including a federal courthouse, as this Twitter user reminded people as the left was busy minimizing the summer 2020 riots in the immediate aftermath of what took place at the Capitol building in January:

Is this supposed to be breaking news? This is known to anyone with a brain.

Absolutely zero surprise here.

And then there’s all that Covid they spread all over. Condoned by the CDC. Because, according to the Center for ‘Disease’ Control, mostly peacefully protesting of ‘systemic racism’ and ‘white privilege’ is more important than saving the lives of grandma and grandpa.

They admitted their recommendations are influenced by their political agenda. After that, why should anyone pay attention to anything the CDC says?

The covid spread is the 1.5 million illegals that Biden has let in with a 40% positive covid.. untreated

Think about it

And it’s not stoping , they keep coming and he keeps letting them in

Send the numbers to everyone on social media cause our Democratic media ain’t doing it

And how did the Mainstream Media report on this! All crickets!

Think real hard about the sanctioned violence of BLM/Antifa/Homeless junkies.

Then think real hard about the apathy of the civil rights being violated on those participating in the Jan 6 protest. Include in that apathy the entire GOP establishment.

That doesn’t lead me to a real good place about the state of our nation, our legal system, or the future.

While I am generally jubilant about left wing cities tearing themselves to pieces Old Testament style (yes this is God speaking to us) I’m uncertain about a future which involves throwing dissenters into the gulag.

Although BLM and antifa are not the government, the government still holds a monopoly on violence. Playing defense in such a game is hard enough, but playing offense is like drinking concrete through a coffee straw.

Maybe if people on the Right stop being “outraged” over January 6 and stop calling them “riots” idiots on the Left wouldn’t be making absurd comparisons of the day to being worse than 9/11 and the worst riot ever when we all know all of the rioting and violence has come from the Left?

And if they counted deaths for the BLM/Antifa riots the way that the left wants to count deaths for the January 6 imbroglio the number of deaths caused by the BLM/Antifa riots would increase substantially.

But, but, it was an Insurrection!

Tovarisch, you must understand that the ANTIFA/BLM actions were in the service of both Party and State. They are assets. The 1/6 events were counter-revolutionary acts by wreckers and Kulaks and have to be suppressed with the utmost vigor.

Yes, that is /s

BLM/Antifa is an arm of the Democratic Party just as surely as the brown shirted SA thugs were an arm of the Nazi Party. They are here to terrorize and intimidate the Democrats political opposition just as surely as the sun rises in the east.

The goose-stepping “Anti-fa” and “Black Lives Matter” terrorist-thugs carried out a true, year-long insurrection, featuring the occupation of and destruction of neighborhoods; the destruction of businesses; the destruction of courthouses and police stations; the desecration of synagogues; attacks upon law enforcement officers; the murder of innocents — funny how the vile Dhimmi-crats aren’t at all interesting in convening a committee to investigation this insurrection, which the Dhimmi-crats enabled, lauded, rationalized and otherwise supported, at every turn.
