I published an opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal Monday expanding on the manufactured controversy surrounding recent comments regarding the Jan. 6 protests. As I have said many times, "This isn't about race. It's about riots." I condemn both the violence and chaos of Jan. 6 and the riots of last summer. I support anyone and everyone's right to peacefully protest.
Leftists want to pretend last summer's political violence never happened.
According to the Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project, 570 leftists protests became riots last year. In addition, 25 people lost their lives and 700 law enforcement officers were injured. Along with the peaceful protests, there were too many scenes like in this video. There's a reason why the boarded-up windows in the downtowns of major cities came down soon after Joe Biden won the election:

Nobody was worried what Trump supporters would do if their guy lost; they were worried about what Biden supporters would do if their guy didn't win.
