Most liberals are laying the blame for the rioting at the U.S. Capitol Wednesday solely at the feet of President Trump, while others are branching out and blaming his “enablers”: essentially, anyone in or out of politics who supported him in his challenge to the 2020 election results. And then there’s MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, who blames “everyone who worked in Republican party politics the last four years.” Most of his followers think four should be 40, but we think he’s just sore about Trump appointing three Supreme Court justices and … cutting taxes?
Everyone who worked in Republican party politics the last four years helped make this happen. This, along with the hundreds of thousands of dead from Covid, was part of the cost of the 6-3 court and the corporate tax rate being cut from 35 to 21%. You built this!

Oh, and COVID-19. That was the Republicans’ fault, not China’s.
You are just as unhinged, insane, reckless and irresponsible in your extremist rhetoric as whatever you rage about Trump ever saying. https://t.co/qHEEUVQogc

No, you idiot. Not everyone. People like you saying things like this are a big part of the underlying reasons for how we got here. https://t.co/XhIhKvhiDs

What does cutting the corporate tax rate have to do with protesters storming the capital? https://t.co/eoo2Bab3LY

I'm not sure how a more globally competitive corporate tax rate has any direct link to the other items you mention, but okay. https://t.co/f9YGFzIEZJ

Chris' real angst: "…the 6-3 court and the corporate tax rate being cut from 35 to 21%". The latter is justifiable grievance but never for violence. https://t.co/0xil7dbyGg

yeah the corporate tax rate getting cut that's what everyone cares about https://t.co/bM9YgW52DJ

Chris thinks that taxing you harder will decrease resent of government.
Frankly, he might be right for some people. https://t.co/yeVCB6MSjP

By this logic everyone who worked for Democrat party politics is responsible for the guy who shot up the Capital Hill baseball practice. https://t.co/t9UoPlYNtC

If that's the case, then every Democrat is to blame for every city burned to the ground by BLM rioters this summer.
You're playing a dangerous game. https://t.co/3VNpIUlNQk

Zero mention of all the riots and looting that Hayes helped call 'mostly peaceful?" https://t.co/GJxzQaGdWM

Also this asshat praised the summer time riots, but now they are not ok. Antifa and BLM destroyed hundreds if not thousands of businesses. This is why there is a problem, the Democrat media is full of hypocrites https://t.co/PWLwITgf3I

This kind of rhetoric from the left—the media left, no less (but I repeat myself)—is unhelpful. Radicalizes people by showing that Bush/Romney/Cruz/Ryan/Paul/Rubio/Sasse/Trump all the same to you. Sincere belief in Constitution, free markets, individual liberty is all “fascism.” https://t.co/EqKYYs0wkR

GTFO! Being a member of the mainstream media has to be one of the best jobs on earth. You cause division, gaslight, lie, de-legitimize an election and a President for 4 years and when shit finally goes off, you take ZERO responsibility and just continue on causing division. https://t.co/ZaV5XSz6HG

This is baseless, nonsensical bullshit that does more harm than good. It's the Twitter rhetorical equivalent of attaching a Section 230 repeal amendment to the NDAA. Beyond its obvious opportunism, totally meaningless. Slightly surprised there isn't a "buy my book!" hyperlink. https://t.co/yWGsdSmjCA

We’re not going to justify the rioting at the Capitol, but it sure is revealing that Hayes mentioned things like the Supreme Court and tax cuts; Democrats’ anger today is just the culmination of their anger for the last four years of not being in power. And if Republicans are mad that people like Hayes spent the entire Trump administration trying to paint the president as illegitimate, so be it.
