The mainstream media insisted for months that any protesters at the U.S. capitol on January 6th were “insurrectionists.” As such, they should be treated like “domestic terrorists” and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
But what about Black Lives Matter? On Thursday, BLM activists took over the Iowa State Capitol Building and began shouting its demands to state lawmakers. Watch:

The BLM activists were demanding “justice” for Philandro Castile, a 32-year-old man who was shot and killed in Minnesota in 2016. Despite dashcam video, the arresting officer Jeronimo Yanez was acquitted of manslaughter in 2017. The activists also called for justice for other BLM icons, such as Eric Garner and George Floyd, shouting, “I can’t breathe!”
The “insurrection” doesn’t bode well for a nation that has been racked by Black Lives Matter protests since the death of George Floyd in May 2020.
The Antifa & BLM fueled riots in 140 cities following Floyd’s death led to at least $2 billion in damages, at least nine people killed, and hundreds of arrests in 21 states.
The officers and agents were injured when protesters threw “projectiles such as bricks, rocks, bottles, fireworks and other items,” according to the statement. “Personnel were also directly physically assaulted as they were kicked, punched and exposed to bodily fluids.”
In terms of scale and cost, the BLM riots were objectively worse than the Capitol riots. While over 600 suspects were charged in BLM riots, most of them summarily let go, a little over 200 suspects were charged in the Capitol riots.
The storming of the Iowa State Capitol Building by BLM activists is a foreboding development amid a Derek Chauvin trial that is not going the prosecution’s way. Chauvin is charged with second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter — and there are now reasons to believe that the officer could be acquitted.
Before the defense has even had a chance to call its own witnesses, the prosecution’s expert witness on use of force was so useful in causing doubt that Chauvin used a forbidden police restraint on Floyd that he will be called back by the defense.
Furthermore, there is the matter of the medical examiner’s report, which showed no evidence of physical trauma causing Floyd’s death.

Such a report leads to the reasonable inference that drugs killed George Floyd and not Chauvin’s restraint. It was reported in June 2020 that George Floyd’s medical examiner report revealed numerous health problems that pre-existed before his incident with police.
“A full autopsy report on George Floyd, the man who died after being restrained by Minneapolis police last month, reveals that he was positive for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19,” NPR reported. “The 20-page report also indicates that Floyd had fentanyl and methamphetamine in his system at the time of his death, although the drugs are not listed as the cause.”
If Derek Chauvin is acquitted, and the surprising weakness of the prosecution’s case suggests that is a strong possibility, then what America saw from the 2020 riots will be child’s play.
