However, do you notice what is missing from all of these condemnations? Calls for an intense investigation and long prison sentences for the criminals.
The police only made one arrest despite over 200 rioters injuring six officers and blocking exits as Congress members were inside the building.
The rioters trapped Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-MI) in the DNC. She could not exit because they blocked all the exits.
Dingell told The Detroit News the riot “rattled” her more than the January 6th Capitol Hill riot: “I was scared. Someone is going to get hurt at one of these things. They can get out of control.”
An anonymous Democrat lawmaker told Axios the riot “scared me more than January 6th.”
I do not think the lawmaker is Dingell. The lawmaker continued: “Someone sent out word for people to come [back] and police said it’s not safe. Police were wearing gas masks … this was not peaceful.”
Other lawmakers condemned the rioters:
“We have witnessed countless nonviolent gatherings in Washington and across the globe this week and over the past month since the Israel-Hamas war began. Peace is possible,” [Michigan Democrat Rep. Hillary] Scholten said in a statement. “I condemn violence in all forms and urge my fellow Americans to use their voices, but not violence, when working for the change we want to see in the world.”
Rep. Sean Casten, D-Illinois, also was among the lawmakers evacuated from the building.
“You have the Constitutional right to peaceably assemble and protest. But blocking all entries to a building with multiple members of Congress in it, protected by Capitol Police officers who have lived through January 6, is putting you and other innocent people at risk,” Casten posted on X.
Thankful to the police officers who stopped them and for helping me and my colleagues get out safely. (1/2) https://t.co/tYVCK3o0YA

Do you know what is missing from all of these condemnations?
Calls for an intense investigation. Long prison sentences for the criminals.
Or will that not happen because the rioters are not Republicans, conservatives, or Trump supporters? Maybe because it did not happen at the Capitol?
Oh, we all know an investigation would have started the day after the DNC riot.
The DNC riot hurt more Capitol Police officers.DONATE
