Where was the outcry from Mr. DeSaulnier when Antifa, BLM, Boogaloo Boys, etc., killed people, attacked police, burned down businesses, and attacked federal buildings? Mr. DeSaulnier is only crying foul now because violence was brought to his doorstep. He is quick - and rightly so - to condemn the mob that attacked the Capitol; however, he has only condemned one group.

Mr. DeSaulnier has not condemned Antifa, BLM, or the Boogaloo Boys. Instead, he said deep-seated racism and economic inequality issues brought about the anarchy from these groups. So, Mr. DeSaulnier said "issues" brought about the violence; however, he doesn't want to condemn it. It would appear that Mr. DeSaulnier just gave those 'peaceful demonstrators" a pass.

Politics is supposed to be the second oldest profession. I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first. ~Ronald Reagan
