(Liberty Bell) – While the Democrats and their media sycophants have repeatedly demanded over and over that President Trump denounce and condemn white supremacy and any groups associated with it, the left never feels that they should do the same for radical left violence or any groups committing it.
Not only do they refuse to denounce Antifa and Black Lives Matter violence but they go as far as to deny it’s even the left carrying out acts of violence and rioting.
Just like how Joe Biden stood on the debate stage in September during the first debate and asserted that “Antifa is just an idea,” other Democrats make similar statements while continuing to defend and justify the radical left.
Minnesota congressman, Rep. Dean Phillips, said during an interview on Fox News that Black Lives Matter and other leftist groups aren’t the ones responsible for the violence and rioting that have plagued US cities for the better part of 2020.
While speaking to Fox News’ Leland Vittert on Sunday, Phillips argued that the idea that BLM and Antifa are committing violence is just “nonsense” and that it needs to end before claiming that he believes “all violence” should be condemned.
In light of the numerous incidents of leftist violence against Trump supporters over the weekend in Washington DC during and after the “Million MAGA March,” Vittert pushed back on Phillips’ denial of left-wing violence.
Vittert asked if Phillips agreed with the assertion that the vast majority of violence seen in the country over the last several months is being primarily carried out by leftists. Phillips responded with what is almost a comical answer.
“Anybody who looks at the facts can identify the fact that a lot of the most violent acts, a lot of the burning, wasn’t done by leftists,” he said in seriousness before adding that “it is time that we set aside this nonsense and come to the same conclusion.”
What conclusion would that be? We can only assume he means it’s time for Americans to conclude that the violence is incited by President Trump and it’s actually his supporters that are guilty.
He went on to say that all Americans should have the right to gather safely and peacefully. Vittert then pressed Phillips on the reason why President Trump has been asked repeatedly to denounce white supremacy and such yet the left is not held to the same standard.
“Why is it so hard for Democrats to name and shame them?” Vittert asked, referring to Antifa and Black Lives Matter.
Phillips responded by saying that he doesn’t believe that BLM is responsible for the violence and went on to give blanket condemnation for all violence “no matter where it comes from.”
Vittert wasn’t satisfied with Phillips’ non-answer and pressed him again on why Democrats like himself continue to refuse to condemn leftist violence despite video evidence of it being carried about by people literally wearing clothing that signals their association with BLM and Antifa.
Rather than condemning violence in general again he offered a shocking defense of left-wing agitators saying that people wearing BLM gear are “trying to fight for equality” whereas people who are wearing swastikas are “fighting for the death of people who are not like them.”
There it is. What the Democrats really actually think. It’s OK for radical leftists to engage in violence because their cause justifies it.
What a sham. If you’ve ever seen any of the videos of leftists violently attacking Trump supporters you would know that these people are most certainly not fighting for “equality.”
You don’t fight for “equality” by lessening the value of other humans through violent physical attacks. That is absurd and even Phillips and the rest of the Democrats know that. Nobody actually believes BLM and Antifa are fighting for anything respectable or admirable.
These radical groups do what Democrats want done to Trump supporters and that’s why they don’t denounce them or call them out.
For the duration of the interview, Phillips would not denounce Antifa, who he claimed doesn’t really exist, despite Vittert trying several times.
Phillips claimed that no one in the Democratic Party is associated with the Antifa mob as if to insinuate that President Trump is associated with white supremacist groups.
Phillips is a typical Democrat shill and will say just about anything to avoid denouncing the radical left.
