Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro focused her latest monologue for Fox News’ “Justice w/Judge Jeanine” on the “deplorable” pro-Trump extremists who rioted at the U.S. Capitol last week and are now trying to blame their “reprehensible” behavior on Antifa extremists.
Not only did she condemn the extremist actions of the rioters — something that, as a reminder, Democrats and their liberal media allies failed to do vis-a-vis the summer Black Lives Matter riots — but she made it a point to demand all conservatives “take the veil of politics off” and “be totally objective” about what happened.
“I want to be clear: The actions at the United States Capitol three days ago were deplorable, reprehensible, outright criminal,” she said.
“These frightening and repulsive actions represent the most significant breach on our Capitol in over 200 years, and I don’t care what happened in the past or whether those who did it think the election was stolen — that is not justification.”
After all, she continued, there are “75 million of us still angry about the election” but who certainly didn’t choose to express it via violent rioting.
Pirro then addressed the “Antifa did it” narrative that’s emerged among some on the right.
“And stop looking for other people to blame, including those dirtbag terrorists Antifa. To those of you who did this, you did it of your own will, and you will be held accountable,” she said.
“Take the veil of politics off. Be totally objective. Anyone watching this must condemn it,” Pirro continued, again echoing the consistent refrain among the right that’s always been applied in the face of violent rioting.
And indeed every prominent conservative/Republican has condemned what happened. So has every prominent liberal/Democrat who hypocritically spent months defending and promoting BLM extremists as they destroyed businesses, attacked bystanders and killed innocent people.
Listen to Pirro’s monologue below:
She continued by noting that the rioting accomplished nothing.
“What did you get out of it? Was there even a plan when you got in there besides looking like a bunch of freaks breaking windows, carrying off a podium, sitting at Nancy’s Pelosi desk, leaving a love note with fingerprints behind, identifying yourselves with selfies, stealing/damaging property, trespassing, looting?” she said.
“Five people are dead in your wake — a police officer, an Air Force veteran, not to mention countless injured, including a young police officer on video screaming as he’s being crushed, blood coming out of his mouth.”
Meanwhile, a social media purge has been triggered, and a refrain has emerged among the institutional mainstream left that every Trump supporter and every Trump policy is to blame for what happened.
“You have tarnished all the good that’s been done over the last four years because of this senseless lunacy, and worst of all, you have yielded that moral high ground to those who have repeatedly and consistently taken away our freedoms — our freedom of speech, religion; our right to be with our family, celebrate holidays, even go to work as you prance around like a bunch of idiots in the Capitol,” Pirro said.
“We are a proud populist movement of millions of Americans who support a man who struck a chord with us. People who never voted before — forgotten men and women — people who didn’t think their vote mattered came out in droves, and for four years we watched President Trump deliver on his promises.”
But in one fell swoop, the pro-Trump rioters managed to destroy the president’s entire legacy — and the ones who’ll pay the steepest price will be his supporters, who’re now in store for rampant censorship, at minimum, and all at the hands of some of the country’s most notorious hypocrites.

“There are two systems of justice, two systems of outrage … today there’s one for the left and one for the right. It seems the rules are applied unequally,” Pirro added.
She was right.
While the Capitol riot was atrocious and the perpetrators should and must be held accountable, the same zeal for punishment and retribution that’s now being seen on the left was never present during the deadly BLM riots over the summer.
Prominent leftists certainly weren’t deplatformed for promoting the riots. Even barely any of the perpetrators themselves were held accountable, with those in power choosing to release them without charges and even allow them to establish autonomous zones.
Meanwhile, Democrat politicians and Hollywood celebrities rushed to pay the bail for those rioters who weren’t immediately released. And after one left-wing extremist, Michael Forest Reinoehl, killed an innocent Trump supporter, the mainstream media rushed to interview him and portray him as the good guy.
The double standards could not be any more stark.

Worse, the ones who practice the double standards are not only slated to control the White House, the House and the Senate in a matter of days — but now have the “moral high ground,” as Pirro put it, to seek political retaliation, and all thanks to the actions of a group of genuine “deplorables.”
