Poster Nance Greggs on democraticunderground.com commented on Republican propensity of Republicans to go to a standard “both sides do it” when they get questioned about violent or treasonous behavior. This way of ducking questions was most recently seen as Congress member Paul Gosar was held to account for his vicious anime tweet aimed at Congress Member Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the President.
We also see this “both sides do it” in any conversation about the January 6th coup attempt. Usually they bring up bugaboos ‘enemies’ such as Antifa – which doesn’t exist – or Black Lives Matter, which is not a violent organization.
Here is her post:
Roll the Tape
When Republicans are caught lying, stealing, taking away people’s rights, encouraging violence, and blatantly demonstrating their own treason to their country, they always fall back on the same old meme: Both sides do it.
If that’s the case, they can easily prove it by doing the following:
Show me the footage of pro-maskers threatening unmasked schoolchildren on their way to school.
Show me the footage of pro-vaxers surrounding anti-vaxers while screaming “we know where you live!” as they attempt to leave school board meetings.
Show me the footage of elected Democrats inciting their constituents to violence.
Show me the footage of Democrats marching with tiki torches yelling “Jews will not replace us!”
Show me the footage of Democrats deliberately driving their cars into crowds of Republican protestors.
Show me the footage of the so-called liberal media editing a Trump speech to make it appear he said something he didn’t say.
Show me the footage of a liberal declaring that Republicans torture and kill babies, and then eat them.
Show me the footage of a Democratic congressman/congresswoman refusing to mask-up or go through a metal detector before entering the Capitol.
Show me the footage of an in-office Democrat outlining their plans to suppress the vote.
Show me the footage of a Democrat comparing public health mandates to the suffering and death of Holocaust victims.
And while you’re at it, show me the footage of Democrats attacking the Capitol, destroying the building, beating cops – and wiping their own shit on the floors and walls while they’re at it.
Given that we live in an age where virtually everything is filmed – by TV camera crews, professional videographers, and amateurs armed with a phone – such footage should be easily accessible.
So let’s see it, Republicans – roll the tape.
Someday soon, when a Republican starts with the “both sides do it” argument we may see the interviewer say “give me some specific documented examples, please.”
Oh, BTW, the only Antifa I ever heard of, my late father-in-law was a part of. He went calling on Hitler on Omaha Beach in Normandy June 6th, 1944.
