I rolled my eyes so far into the back of my head that they almost got stuck when I heard CNN anchors Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon stating that the fiery, violent BLM riots over the summer were some how justified, unlike the Capitol Hill riot.
Don’t get me wrong, neither of those riots were right. However, you cannot somehow try to say that seven months of riots where people looted and burned down businesses was justified in comparison to the Capitol riot that lasted a few hours and minimal damage was done.
Immigration official Ken Cuccinelli said, “They just haven’t done it at the Capitol. They’ve been doing it all over the country for seven months.”
Cuomo replied, “That matters. That matters. Overturning the election is different than being pissed off about being shot by cops.”
Then as the show transitioned into another, Lemon said, “That was a very important interview. And listen, I’m glad you mentioned about being shot by cops because you cannot compare. And I’m sick of people comparing. You can’t compare what happened this summer to what happened at the Capitol. It’s two different things.”
He continued, “One is built on people, on racial justice, on criminal justice, right, on reform, on police not beating up – or police treating people of color differently than they do whites. Okay? That is not a lie. Those are facts. Go look at them. What happened at the Capitol was built on a lie perpetrated by the president and the people who support him. So, just on that one merit, if you want to call it, it’s not comparable. That things are not comparable. So they should not be doing it. And stop this whataboutism.”
Cuomo said, “The truth is, as soon as somebody says to you, Don, they are aware of what happened last week – ‘but this summer’ – as soon as the words come out of their mouth, they do not care about what happened last week. They know everything that you’re saying, and I’m saying. They get that it’s not apples to apples. What it is, is a reflection of the truth, of what is happening in this country. Which is there are people who don’t care, who don’t like what was done, who don’t believe that Black people are justified, and it’s why last week happened. And we can get angry too. That is the truth.”
