    The democratic leaders outraged about the Capitol but not about six months worth of riots and deaths BLM is behind. Thats so strange.. I thought the democrat leaders was against violence, but they are apparently not against violence when BLM and anfita is behind it?? Thats very very hypocrisy

    Actually, the left *did* condemn the looting and violence over the summer, but the right wasn't listening.

    But, even there, a HUGE difference is that the events last week were in the Capitol building (federal property) and the goal was to disrupt the certification of the latest election (sedition).

    The goal of the protests last summer was to get attention on the asymmetries in law enforcement towards blacks.

    Don't forget to include the center too. There is rarely something more hypocritical than the political center. The nature of compromise for power and popularity leads to hypocrisy.

    As mentionned by Polymath257, the Democratic establishment strongly condamned the riots and the riots themselves were in opposition to a form of oppression not in defense of one. Violence against oppression and violence against democracy aren't exactly equal in my book. Intent does matter.

    They are by far the largest and most popular political philosophy in any given country. It just got elected and represented by Joe Biden. What do you mean so quiet? The center has been taking the **** out of Trump for four years.

    Okay everyone is a hypocrite. Left, right, middle, down, up, to the side. The guy who fixes the toilet. The guy who collects the bins. The guy who randomly goes to the park. The guy at the gym.
    Every single person in the history of the universe is a hypocrite.
    There. Does that cover it?

    They perform their Game, and they do it well, fooling all (but themselves) ... for centuries called "Bread and Games", now called "Conspiracy":D

    Of course every group has them. To say otherwise would be hypocritical

    What makes sense is pointing out specific hypocricies,
    but without painting entire groups with too broad a brush.

    You might ask yourself, while you're at it, whether anyone -- either "side" -- has a legitimate grievance? How many blacks, versus how many white republicans, get shot for walking outside? How many BLM and Antifa overran the Capitol with the intention of murdering the Speaker of the House and Vice President?

    Broad brush often includes innocent bystanders, caught in the cross fire
