GOP Rep: Dems to Blame for Capitol Riot Because of 'Soft Approach' to BLM Violence

'Every movement has a lunatic fringe. Suppressing free speech is not the answer,' McClintock said

Republican Rep. Tom McClintock blasted Democrats for the Capitol riot last week, asserting it may not have happened if they had not taken a soft approach against Black Lives Matter riots over the summer.

During a House debate prior to the vote to impeach President Trump, McClintock blasted the Democrats’ impeachment article arguing they should be prepared to hold the same standard of accountability they just set.

Although the Republican said that Trump “was wrong to set such a confrontational tone in a politically tense situation," he reminded his colleagues that the President encouraged protesters to march to the Capitol to “peacefully and patriotically make their voices heard.”

“Every movement has a lunatic fringe. Suppressing free speech is not the answer," McClintock said

"Holding rioters accountable for their actions is the answer, and we are."

“And if we’d prosecuted BLM and Antifa rioters with the same determination these last six months, this incident may not have happened at all.”

He later warned Democrats who voted for the impeachment article that they would be held to the same standard.

WATCH:

“Any member of this body gives an impassioned speech, and the lunatic fringe of their movement takes license from it, be prepared to answer for this new precedent that we established today,” McClintock continued.

“Now, I could cite many provocative speeches made by Democrats that directly preceded violence this summer, but we’ve already had enough of that.”

Earlier this week, CNN hosts Don Lemon, and Chris Cuomo suggested the Black Lives Matter riots last summer were more justified than the riot on Capitol Hill last Wednesday.

The two far-left hosts suggested that livelihoods being destroyed by the hands of Antifa and BLM were noble because of a just cause.

Chris Cuomo said that attempting to overturn an election was “different than being pissed off about being shot by the cops.”

“They just haven’t done it at the Capitol," Cuomo said.

"They’ve been doing it all over the country for seven months,” Cuccinelli said of the riots.“That matters. That matters," Cuomo asserted.

“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,” Lemon said on Tuesday.

“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,” he added.

“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.”

“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,” Cuomo said.
