Yes, President Biden did suggest, the day after the riot, that the Capitol Police were racist.
And yes, the Washington Post does have a conservative columnist.
After Democrats played videos Thursday of the heroic actions of Capitol Police during the Jan. 6 riots, it is obvious that Biden’s contention that they would have handled black protestors differently is wrong.
The supposed uniter is guilty of ugly divisiveness.
From the column by Mark Thiessen:
Instead of praising the Capitol Police for their heroism, he accused them of racism.
“Not only did we see the failure to protect one of the three branches of our government, we also saw a clear failure to carry out equal justice,” Biden declared.
“No one can tell me that if it had been a group of Black Lives Matter protesting yesterday, they wouldn’t have been treated very differently than the mob of thugs that stormed the Capitol. We all know that’s true. And it is unacceptable.”
Biden’s comments were not only shameful; they were flat wrong. The video shown by House impeachment managers clearly shows that police failed to stop the mob not because of the color of their skin but because the officers were overpowered. They showed D.C. police officer Daniel Hodges screaming in pain as he tried to stop the rioters from entering the Capitol, his body trapped against a door while the mob heaved and crushed him.
