(Patriot Insider) – The left is adamant that only Trump supporters and conservatives “riot.” After the Capitol riot on Jan. 6, the mainstream media and the Democrats decided to take a hard stance against rioting but only certain types of rioting.
Their indignation has been comical considering how passive they had been over the course of 2020 when radical leftists rioted nonstop causing over $2 billion in damages in cities across the country.
There was no outrage from Democrats or the mainstream media over the chaos being imposed on US cities in the name of radical left causes. As a matter of fact, the left’s goal was to pretend like there was no rioting going on at all.
The media consistently described the violent events as “mostly” peaceful protests and outright refused to call them out for what they were.
Now, despite their vehement indignation over what happened at the Capitol in January, the left is back to pretending that riots aren’t really happening.
Arrogant reporters at a press conference concerning the shooting of Daunte Wright reprimanded Brooklyn Center Police Chief Tim Gannon over his use of the word “riot” to describe the violent chaos that devolved the night before.
Gannon held the presser to provide further details regarding the police response to the out of control “protests” in Minneapolis that occurred following the shooting of Wright. According to police footage of the incident, the shooting appears to be accidental but radical leftists don’t care, they just want to riot.
The female officer who shot Wright seems to have thought she was using her taser rather than her service pistol. The incident has, nonetheless, caused the expected unrest and chaos as other police-involved shootings of black individuals.
In attempting to respond to a question by one reporter, Gannon said, “Just so everybody is clear, I was front and center at the protest, at the riot,” before being cut off by the angry mob of reporters who yelled at him and insisted there was no riot.
Brooklyn Center Police Chief Gannon: "I was front and center… at the riot."
Reporter: "There was no riot."

“There was no riot,” a reporter tells him, as others join in taking issue with the use of the term. Of course, these reporters don’t have a clue what they’re talking about.
While police were getting pelted with frozen cans of soda and bricks, the arrogant press pool was at home or in their hotels, sleeping soundly in their beds.
Yet, they have the audacity to tell the police chief what was really going on during the time when police were being violently attacked by an angry mob and businesses were being looted clean and destroyed.
“There was… the officers that were putting themselves in harm’s way were being pelted with frozen cans of pop, they were being pelted with concrete blocks,” Gannon continued.
“Yes, we had our helmets on. We had other protection gear. But an officer was injured, hit in the head with a brick … he was transported to the hospital. So, we had to make decisions, we had to disperse the crowd because we can’t allow our officers to be harmed.”
That’s what police were dealing with while pompous leftist reporters were sleeping soundly.
The entire violent ordeal was started in response to the Sunday shooting of Daunte Wright who was supposedly pulled over for having an air freshener hanging from his rear-view mirror, which is not allowed in Minnesota. This account has been disputed online, however.
Nonetheless, after being pulled over Wright, who had a warrant for his arrest, attempted to flee.
“Officers say that as they tried to arrest him, Wright got back in his car and drove off,” reports the Daily Mail. “An officer fired at the vehicle, striking Wright, but he continued driving for several blocks before hitting another car.”
“Police have not said if Wright was armed or explained yet why they opened fire.”
Wright was not some innocent black man just out strolling along, minding his own business when “racist” police decided to murder him.
He was a wanted suspected criminal and attempted to flee and evade arrest.
Leftist have a hard time with facts including and especially what constitutes as a “riot.”
