In the aftermath of the universally-condemned violence at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, a fired-up Dan Bongino sent a message that every American needs to hear about ever-present double standards especially in the context of the anti-Trump corporate media describing widespread civil unrest that included looting and arson over the summer, as mostly peaceful protests.
The country “is not a Parcheesi club,” and the same standards of acceptable behavior must apply to everyone regardless of an artificial ideological litmus test, the former NYPD officer and Secret Service agent declared.
Recalling the anarchy, for example, at a U.S. courthouse in Portland, Bongino wondered “do you think that would have been allowed to happen if it were a group of, God forbid, conservatives or libertarians? You damn well know the answer is no. Those people would be arrested and tried immediately…Why was that allowed to continue for a month?”
“The answer is…because there isn’t one guiding set of principles in this country. There is one rule for the left and media, and another set of rules from conservatives who call out violence anytime it happens…[violence] is never the solution to our problems in this country…It is not a Parcheesi club. There has to be one set of principles that is assigned to both sides that we have fidelity to. And if we don’t have that, we don’t have a country,” he told FNC’s, Sean Hannity.
Bongino added that an “autopsy” is necessary to find out what happened on Wednesday and identify the roles of those on both ends of the political divide, including the media.
Separately in the Fox News segment, Bongino asserted that “We have roundly condemned the violence tonight on this network. Everyone. Period. That’s it. Where was the media…when my Secret Service friends were calling me with a mob outside of the White House during the summer of protest who were generally in fear for the first time?… Where were the mass condemnations there?…there isn’t one guiding set of principles in this country,” he reaffirmed.
Unlike CNN’s Chris Cuomo, a law-school graduate, who previously revealed his ignorance of the U.S. Constitution by asking on-the-air about where it said that protests have to be peaceful. Bongino added that “the only people freaking out tonight are the people without principles.”
Bongino also seemed to allude how a mob of far-left extremists accosted him and his wife after President Trump’s RNC acceptance speech at the White House in August 2020, which also happened to U.S. Sen. Rand Paul and his wife, as well as many others, as they walked back to their hotels.
Along these lines, in a column that is critical of President Trump’s post-election behavior, New York Post columnist Miranda Devine predicted that pro-Trump protesters “won’t receive the kid-glove treatment that BLM-Antifa received with last year’s ‘mostly peaceful protests.”
“They didn’t throw bricks at police or burn police buildings to the ground or beat innocent passersby senseless. But they will have the book thrown at them because it’s not the crime you commit that matters anymore, it’s who you are. So, as bad as the Capitol Hill anarchy yesterday looked, we shouldn’t be surprised after the way leftist violence was condoned most of last year. You let the genie out of the bottle, there’s no telling where it goes.”
In a statement issued through White House aide Dan Scavino because Trump’s Twitter account is locked, the POTUS committed to an orderly transfer of power even though he still disagrees with the outcome of the election because of rampant irregularities in key swing states.
…fight to ensure that only legal votes were counted. While this represents the end of the greatest first term in presidential history, it’s only the beginning of our fight to Make America Great Again!”
