A Democratic Party headquarters was damaged, an American flag burned,
and marchers filled the streets in Portland, Ore., on Wednesday,
following Joe Biden’s inauguration. Antifa was reportedly behind the activities, known during the summer as “peaceful protests.”
The New York Times reported that “federal agents in camouflage — now
working under the Biden administration — blanketed streets with tear
gas and unleashed volleys of welt-inducing pepper balls as they
confronted a crowd that gathered outside an Immigration and Customs Enforcement building near downtown.”
Some in the group of about 150 people smashed windows and
spray-painted anarchist symbols at the political party
building. Police said eight arrests were made in the area.
Some demonstrators carried a sign reading, “We don’t want
Biden, we want revenge!” in response to “police murders” and
“imperialist wars.” Others carried a banner declaring “We Are
There was a huge amount of outrage last summer after President Trump
was accused of having “peaceful protesters” tear-gassed without
provocation to clear the area so he could “get his photo op” at the
historic St. John’s Episcopal Church, which had been burned in the
riots the night before. The United States Park Police (USPP) denied
this allegation and the claim that the D.C. protesters were peaceful
was also completely false. Over the course of four days, protesters,
armed with baseball bats, metal poles, and glass bottles for
projectiles, vandalized property and injured 51 USPP officers.
So, where is the outrage over the Biden administration using actual
tear gas (according to the New York Times) to break up “peaceful
protesters”? They are peaceful, are they not? I mean, that’s what we
were told about this behavior all summer. CNN and MSNBC, for example, specifically avoided calling the BLM riots “riots.”
MSNBC reporter Ali Velshi even called the riots “mostly peaceful” as he
stood amongst rampant violence in front of a burning building.
MSNBC reporter just now: "I want to be clear on how I
characterize this. This is mostly a protest. It is not
generally speaking unruly."

Axios also claimed that “The protests that took place in 140 U.S.
cities this spring were mostly peaceful, but the arson, vandalism and
looting that did occur will result in at least $1 billion to $2 billion
of paid insurance claims.”
By the media’s standards, Joe Biden tear-gassed peaceful protesters.
Where’s the outrage?
