Trump Hypocrisy Exposed: MAGA Fans Shred ‘Blue Lives Matter’ Rhetoric At Riot

Trump Hypocrisy Exposed: MAGA Fans Shred 'Blue Lives Matter' Rhetoric At Riot 1


This is an excerpt from a special report on the rise of the “Blue Lives Matter” effort, documenting evidence that some political operatives have exploited the effort for an agenda distinct from "defending" police, featuring harrowing videos showing how Trump and MAGA fans brutally attacked, injured and tried to kill police at the Jan. 6 insurrection. The report includes videos from inside the riot, quotes from Trump fans admitting they thought the police should "shoot" BLM protesters but not them, and Trump fans calling police "pigs" and on the side of "Satan." MSNBC’s Ari Melber also shows how that documented conduct not only undercuts "Blue Lives Matter” rhetoric, but how many prominent conservative political voices failed to fully condemn the attacks on police. (This is an excerpt of the full report, which includes more context and ran over 23 minutes.) (This interview is from MSNBC’s “The Beat with Ari Melber, a news show covering politics, law and culture airing nightly at 6pm ET on MSNBC. ). Aired on 03/01/2021.

    hypocrisy is a prerequisite…
    for being a staunch Republican…

  3. There are no blue or red panic buttons in jail cells.

    Blue lives was a false equivalency for black lives. Right wingers always need a whataboutism foil.

    • Denise Higgins | March 1, 2021 at 9:22 PM | Reply

      @Charles Austin especially considering most cops wear, black or brown uniforms✌️

    • Alejandro Ontiveros | March 1, 2021 at 9:28 PM | Reply

      But remember that stemmed even from the all lives matter movement which was explicitly white supremacist 4chan garbage.

      @Alejandro Ontiveros and they certainly don’t see the irony of it like us. Cottage cheese for brains ✌️

    • Tessmage Tessera | March 1, 2021 at 9:48 PM | Reply

      It was the Republicans who went after the cops and succeeded in murdering one of them at the Capitol.

    • @Tessmage Tessera They were literally punching cops in the head while saying, “We’re doing this for you guys!”, whatever that’s supposed to mean.

    So Trump rioters just carry Trump flags but are not Trump supporters. These people are insane.,

    • Denise Higgins | March 1, 2021 at 9:20 PM | Reply

      They were just sight seeing, right Lou. How’s unemployment my guy.

    • Totally insane and delusional

    • Humphrey Ferguson | March 1, 2021 at 9:50 PM | Reply

      They’re certifiable. Trump wasn’t rallying his supporters on Jan 6th. He rallied Trump flag carrying ‘actors’ and Antifa’ rioters. Antifa stormed the Capitol to stop a DEM electoral win being certified and were hunting down AOC?? ‘Actors’ were happy to participate in treason and get serious criminal convictions? Right…

      I know, they never acknowledge how deep this acting would have to be for their social media posts to be so pro-Trump the past 5 years, family said they were pro-Trump, and how even after being caught they all said they were doing what their president said and waited for a pardon. Like, doing all that AND going to jail just to make Trump look bad would be some commitment on Antifa’s part….

    • Grateful Fredly | March 1, 2021 at 10:02 PM | Reply

      No, they are anti Biden/Harris. They demand less government.

    Mark Levin from FOX… wow… that man is horrible. He might even be worst than Tucker! Or Hannity? Lets rate FOX hosts!!!!!!!!!!

  7. I guess according to the republicans “Blue Lives Doesn’t Matter”.

    • Underground Guy | March 1, 2021 at 9:23 PM | Reply

      Not when they are Killed by other White men..who are either Ex- Current Cops-Military, and Racist White Supremacists..Boogaloo Bois, Proud Boys and Oath Keepers, the 3 percenters and such.

      Blue Lives only Matter when it’s convenient.

    • William Hassell | March 1, 2021 at 9:56 PM | Reply

      Blue lives only matter to them when they’re taking black ones

    • Really ? You see this one fake video of antifa ripping a flag and all of the sudden now we dont care about blue lives ? Jajajajajaajajja

    • Angie Carter | March 1, 2021 at 10:11 PM | Reply

      Yes, these repubs mentioned here only give a crap about blue lives Matter wen they murder black lives!!!

  8. I will never understand why there are so many who seemingly didn’t see this coming. I saw it so coming as soon as trump started campaigning the first time 🥴

    • Sarita Florez | March 1, 2021 at 9:51 PM | Reply

      I was anti trump before it was cool or as widely acceptable

    • @Ill Will Paul Irving and Michael Stanger made the decision about the National Guard; they are to blame for that decision. Also, according to Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund, Capitol Police Intelligence Division received notification late on the afternoon of the 5th that some would be armed. But the Intelligence division did not pass on that information to the Chief. Go watch the videos of the hearing and stop believing the nonsense that it was done to make Trump look bad. These three men have lost their jobs due to their leadership skills or lack thereof…

    • @Sarita Florez LOL! There was a movement called Never Trump during the Republican primaries of 2016…

    • Jennifer Conley | March 1, 2021 at 9:59 PM | Reply

      I never liked Trump from day one . He’s always given off toxic vibes even before he became president.

    • Grateful Fredly | March 1, 2021 at 10:05 PM | Reply

      Thats has been confirmed. you never will understand.

  9. They only talked Blue Lives Matter when Blacks spoke up about Black Lives Matter

  10. Marek Kolenda | March 1, 2021 at 8:57 PM | Reply

    Democrats can win TX in next election after snowstorm this year.

  11. These creeps look into the camera and into the eyes of Americans and even kids and lie… Its just beyond reality comprehension.. That’s what Nazis do..

    74 Million racists is the sad truth.

    • The Rest of the World is Condenming Twitter, Facebook, and imposing fines and rules and regulations on them.. And discouraging use of both of THEM!!
      Thanks Nations!!😄

    • … I wouldn’t say that. In fact such characterizations contribute to the nihilistic partisanship in our government and society. However it is telling that racists, like David duke, support republicans.

  15. Who needs Russia and North Korea when we have Republicans😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒

  16. Nancy La MOTT | March 1, 2021 at 9:12 PM | Reply

    The Republicans that promote lies and are linked with denying the insurrection is so shocking and should not be in Congress or the Senate.

  17. Deborah Rasmussen | March 1, 2021 at 9:14 PM | Reply

    Sickening diabolical HYPOCRISY is in Republicans DNA!

  18. My brother, who retired as a lead homicide detective said that “blue line” is only to protect the corrupt, honorable police do not need anything to hide behind.

  19. Trump exposed his hypocrisy with the first ‘drain the swamp’ chant.

    Chump’s terrorists: “Obey the laws, obey the police!”
    Also Chump’s terrorists: Murder cops and commit insurrection because the guy they backed in an election LOST.
