Charlotte, NC — On Wednesday, Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz took to the House floor and didn’t hold back with his passionate and emphatic speech. Gaetz put up a massive figurative mirror in front of his Democrat colleagues in the House making clear that the riots at the Capitol were wrong, but confronted Democrats who literally cheered on for months destruction and violence during the Black Lives Matter riots.
The Democrats were ticked off listening to Gaetz blister their complicity with riots after George Floyd’s death last summer. Gaetz used the balance of his time making it clear that rioting in any form is wrong. His assertions spoke to the riots at the Capitol, but he also said this:
“But make no mistake, the left in America has incited far more political violence than the right. For months our cities burned, police stations burned, our businesses were shattered, and they said nothing!”
“Or, they cheerlead for it, and they fundraised for it, and they allowed it to happen in the greatest country in the world,” he continued.
At this point, you could hear a commotion rising in the background as Democrats began to yell at Gaetz.
“Some have cited the metaphor that the President lit the flame,” said Gaetz, his voice rising to drown out the shouting.
“They lit actual flames!” he shouted. “Actual fires and we had to put them out!”
Gaetz was cut off at this point.
Good on @RepMattGaetz for calling this out. They’re trying to take the heat of themselves while getting indignant about the Capitol riot. It’s all wrong and they need to own it. pic.twitter.com/qCwlzuL6Db

Democrats will never let a crisis go to waste. As such, they have been putting their entire focus on the Capitol riot and redirecting anyone who deviates away from their communications plan. They’re constantly placing the blame for the riots at the feet of President Trump, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), and Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO). Democrats and their allies in the media have pushed a false narrative laying blame at the feet of these men and saying with a straight face they encouraged them.
The Left continues to push these inaccuracies as all three have vehemently denounced the riots with Sen. Cruz leading the way by calling for the prosecution of anyone involved in the Capitol riots.
Gaetz is absolutely correct. However, the Democrats are on record repeatedly encouraging political violence and also shrugging it off. Congresswoman and “Squad” member Ayanna Pressley has deliberately encouraged violence. Back in August she said that, “There needs to be unrest in the streets for as long as there is unrest in our lives.”
On June 1, 2020, Vice President-elect, Kamala Harris asked others to chip in and bail out individuals who had been arrested saying, “If you’re able to, chip in now to the @MNFreedomFund to help post bail for those protesting on the ground in Minnesota.” Perhaps she should have requested help on behalf of the businesses looted and burned by her supporters.

The Left’s standards are an abomination. Democrats are guilty of the assaults, lootings, burnings, destruction, and even murders that happened as a result of the Black Lives Matter riots. However, they refuse to hold themselves accountable and even make excuses for it as CNN’s Don Lemon did on Tuesday night where he justified the violence of Black Lives Matter because it was a movement “built on people.”
Our riots were cooler than yours: During their handoff tonight, Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo argued that the BLM riots they encouraged over the summer were more righteous than the Capitol Hill attack, thus they're not "apples to apples." pic.twitter.com/E03nyiGKRI

Those sitting in the House Chambers yesterday yelling at Gaetz know what he was saying was the truth! It is because of this their visceral reactions were so pronounced. The Left is trafficking in metaphors and misdirection saying president Trump lit the flame.
This is extreme gaslighting. The Left has ignited actual fires and with a straight face and self-righteous indignation have the audacity to blame Republicans and the President.
