the quotes are there, published, and part of the historic record. Proving he did NOT say that is something you're unable to do even if you can cite a rant by a revisionist curmudgeon.
If the people you saw on your television in the violent mob outside the Capitol on Jan. 6 seemed familiar, that's because they were. You have seen them before — at Donald Trump's political rallies, standing in line behind you at the supermarket, driving the car in front of you at the drive-thru, in the pickup line at your kid's school. If you don't believe me, Google some videos taken that day. Look at their faces. They're from every walk of life: middle, lower and upper class, construction workers, shop owners, stockbrokers, husbands, wives, students, off-duty cops and soldiers, accountants, actors, writers, teachers, online media stars, even one recently elected state representative.
What did they have in common? Three things: They were white, almost to a man and woman, they were supporters of Donald Trump, and they were Republicans. They are, in fact, the Republican Party. That's why the political party that once nominated Abraham Lincoln isn't even a party anymore. It's a mob. They were there at the Capitol to do what their members of congress and senators were already at work doing in the well of the House of Representatives: attempting to block the certification of electoral ballots, trying to claim that the election was fraudulent and that it had been stolen from Donald Trump. Their aims were identical. Inside and outside the Capitol, they were there for Donald Trump.

The assumption that uprisings from the right are toxic but uprisings from the left are magical revelations bringing happy futures to all is pretty silly.
The BLM was for the most peaceful until nightfall, then all kinds of sorts from different factions broke the law by causing destruction and fires and buisnesses, I don't condone it, I think the ones who committed those actions were wrong and should account for in the law.
The difference is a difference with a matter of importance. The summer unrest started because once again a white officer killed an unarmed black man and killed him in such inhumane way that not only blacks but most of the American people rose up in protest.
On the other the riot was caused to attack a federal government building to cause a lawful certification of electoral ballets to be disrupted and to stop. ("stop the steal"). By definition that was a terrorist attack on the US government.
For months prior, courts from even conservative judges had thrown out the lawsuits challenging the election due to lack of evidence, all the states had already called their states results after recounting and auditing had confirmed Biden the winner. Trump nevertheless incited his known rabid base to keep fighting to show they are not weak even after all his all his court cases had been thrown out for lack of evidence. It is not enough in a democratically country to state something is true, you have to prove it. They had their chance to prove it and they failed. In a democratic nation there are rules and laws and republicans chose and still choose to ignore the rule of law in our country and have the mob rule win the day. If they had been successful, it would have made democracy in the US a farce.
The mob sent by Trump attacked the capitol police (the ones who didn't join the lawless rioters)with their Trump flags injuring numerous members of the Capitol police and killing one with a fire hydrant. They went into our nations Capitol to hang Pence and kill Polesi and other well known high profile democrats and take over the government.

Oh, yet another angry, put-upon, butt-hurt conservative!
And then we're treated to this drivel:

Except that no one makes that assumption. Get back to us when you have something to contribute which is worth reading.
Facts are facts unless of course you are a consertive republican.
