Calling it “one of many darkest days within the historical past of our nation,” President-elect Joe Biden mentioned Wednesday’s storming of the U.S. Capitol and threats to Mike Pence and members of Congress had been carried out by “riotous mob. Insurrectionists. Home terrorists.” However he didn’t save all his condemnation for the home terrorists. He additionally passionately highlighted the racial disparity that has been on so many individuals’s minds.
”Nobody can inform me that if it had been a gaggle of Black Lives Matter protesting yesterday, they wouldn’t have been handled very, very otherwise from the mob of thugs that stormed the Capitol,” Biden mentioned. “Everyone knows that’s true, and it’s unacceptable.”
