    I'm not sure that was really the issue here.

    Everyone knows a mob of conservatives generally have a different way of conducting themselves than, well, let's just say certain other kinds of groups...
    Even though the conservative activists in this case were out of control and assaulting people, they usually know there is a line to be drawn at some point.
    Whereas the concepts of "morality" and "honor" don't mean as much to certain other types groups.

    Probably... but they would probably have been right to respond differently.

    I know you don't like prejudice, but when you're committing an illegal activity you don't really have a right to "equality".

    Law enforcement have to discriminate all the time, in the heat of the moment. They don't always have time to carefully think about everything, when a response is immediately demanded from them. Like I, and others, have already told you, I think this was mostly not about skin color.

    I think what Ron was trying to say, I am comfortable with white supremacists, Q anon nut jobs and right-wing radicals attacking the capital but if they were BLMers or Antifas I'd be shivering in my boots because I know they'd be looking for racists.

    Perhaps he meant that the capitol protestors may have mistaken him as on their side or neutral whereas the Antifa protestors would not, and would therefore be more prone to attacking him specifically.

    Just a quick note, we know how much property damage and murder has been done by our BLM/antifa clowns, how much has been done by those qanon nutbags?
