Not excusing any actions here... but people genuinely believe this election was stolen. So these people are misguided, brainwashed, dumb, or some combo of everything but the fact that they were protesting what they believed to be an unfair election would be rational. The violence and means they pursued aren't justified. To me 90% of the blame needs to be with the lie makers.But @The Thriller never said the violence at BLM protests was justified. He said the BLM protests were justified. I’m sure you can recognize the difference, the vast majority of BLM protestors engaged in no violence and destruction whatsoever. The insurrectionists’ violence, in contrast to BLM issues, was based on a Big Lie: that the election had been stolen from Trump. That Big Lie contains no truth whatsoever.
Now maybe some of these folks are just straight racist and not redeemable and would protest something even if it wasn't this. Its wild how much people will believe politicians and media just because they say something is a fact.
