He’s not messing around.
According to Breitbart News, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell Democratic politicians for encouraging and joining in on riots.
“Several times now, I’ve praised the peaceful demonstrations protesting racial injustice and the killings of black Americans. I’m grateful that after several harrowing days of looting and riots, law enforcement restored order and helped these peaceful protesters be heard. Notwithstanding, the far left calls to disband the police altogether,” McConnell said in a speech on the Senate floor.
“I believe most Americans are ready to consider how the memories of black Americans like George Floyd and Breonna Taylor can move us to continue combating residual racism. Today, Madame President, I need to discuss a different pressing problem that concerns Americans’ constitutional rights,” he said.
“It’s becoming clear to many Americans, including many who appreciate and applaud the recent protest, that our national life during this pandemic has slid toward a double standard. For weeks, state and local leaders put normal American life totally on ice and asked citizens to prioritize fighting the virus. For weeks, the mainstream media heaped scorn on any small citizen protest, outdoor gathering, or even the suggestion that other important values might require a re-appraisal of certain restrictions,” he said.
