Trump Enablers Now Condemning the Violence Want You to Forget the Past 4 Years

Powerful enablers who up until this week had stuck by Donald Trump as he incited and practically begged his supporters to unleash violence are suddenly over it. The very people who’d spent years treating Trump rallies as nothing more than walk-in dioramas of hate—cartoonishly evil but still just a cartoon—are suddenly issuing blistering statements. Tweeting curse words. Saying enough of this president. But let’s be real: The panicked efforts we’re seeing this week are nothing more than a performance of strained morality and self-pity.

Kelly Ann Conway:
The former Trump adviser and prolific liar once had quite the self-serving spin on the violence she now claims to reject. “The more chaos and anarchy and vandalism and violence reigns,” Conway told Fox & Friends in August, “the better it is for the very clear choice on who’s best on public safety and law and order.”

2. Over on the gun forums they are into the Whataboutisms.

What about ANTiFA, What about BLM, what about the riots in Portland.

They want to equate an attack on Democracy, and attack on the symbol of America, the attack on the Constitution, and Attack on the election process with looting a shoe store.

We are going to have to go after the people who violated our seat of government with an iron fist so that the whatabouters will understand the difference. The only thing that they understand is force, we have to show them the "force" that our government can bring to bear when it comes to protecting the nation from attack. Maximum sentences for all the people who broke into our Capitol, otherwise, we encourage the rest of the hateful bastards that are out there planning the next attack. And make no mistake they are planning the next attack.

the new byline is "No one could have predicted such an event."
