Confirmed: Jan. 6 Protest Resulted in Estimated $1.5 Million in Damages — Or 1/1000th of Damages by Black Lives Matter-Antifa Protests in 2020

Biden, Pelosi, Democrats and their fake news media want you to believe the Jan. 6 protest was the most violent “insurrection” in history.

They say it was as bad as the 9-11 Islamist attacks on America that killed 3,000 innocent Americans.

What they don’t tell you is that the protests were mostly peaceful and the protesters caused minimal damage until their government fired on them with flash grenades, tear gas and rubber bullets without warning.

That’s when protesters ran up the stairs and entered the US Capitol — after the doors were opened from the inside.
We have all seen video of protesters breaking windows and trying to force their way into sections of the US Capitol.

On Friday the mainstream media reported the estimated damages from the January 6 protests came out to $1.5 million.

Obviously, the damages would have been much worse if the protesters had started fires, toppled statues, ripped apart historic paintings, etc. But that did not happen on January 6. No one tagged the walls with graffiti, firebombed the halls, or lit off Molotov cocktails.

And, although this will NEVER make headlines in the fake news media, the January 6 protests (insurrection) caused 1/1,000th of the damages as Black Lives Matter and their Antifa supporters caused across the United States in 2020.

The media will NEVER report that!

Black Lives Matter-Antifa mobs caused over one billion dollars in damages in cities across America since May 2020.  In Minneapolis alone, Black Lives Matter mobs damaged or destroyed over 1,500 businesses or buildings in the 2020 riots.

Over 700 police officers were injured in the BLM riots — and that was back in June 2020!

Black Lives Matter was linked to conservatively 91% of the riots that resulted in the most expensive property damage in US insurance history.

There is no comparison between the Black Lives Matter rioting and the January 6 protests.
